when you are making a new hub the first module is for the title, the category and there's a box you can check or leave unchecked.
it says "this hub can be considered commercial."
so, I never know whether to check the box or uncheck it.
it is checked already.
I have been unchecking it because I myself, as the hubber am not selling anything.
however, I'm confused! google and kontera can be said to be the commercial interests.
question: do I just let the check stay there or uncheck it?
yes, I am trying to make some money. yet I thought there are some hubbers who do offer a tangible product, which perhaps gets sent through the mail, whereby that would be commercial, to me.
so teach me something you guys that have been here longer and actually know what's going on...thanks! LR

Okay, so the moderators shut off my ads on my recent hub (LOL, some people just can't take a joke). Which is fine, saw that one coming (they get props for not shutting it down completely, honestly). SO... I went in to turn off the ads myself so I don't have to see that warning thing every time....

The ad level has a check mark for "high" followed by "This hub may be considered commercial.What exactly does this mean. Is this a good thing and if not, is it ok to check a low level?

I removed the Amazon ads from some of my hubs and unchecked the "This hub may be viewed as commercial" box. Will this affect my earnings through the HP earnings program? Any advice would be appreciated.
