    Can overly promotional warnings ruin your traffic or $ ?

    I have an overly promotional 2+ link warning on a hub.  The links are there more than once as they are references.  I don't own the pages or have any interest in them - they are government sites and the like.

    I know it states if they aren't mine I can ignore the warning.  If I do ignore it, will I regret it?

    If you have more than 2 links to a commercial site you could well find your traffic negatively impacted when HP unpublishes the hub.

    If you really want to keep them, I would write HP and ask for guidance, pointing out that sites with more than two links are all informational (govt, wikipedia, etc.) and not commercial.

      Good point!  I am thinking some of my flags started with the bug a while back.the warnings show up some places but not others.  Will go email them now.
