How long does it usually take for Hubpages to respond to queries about overly promotional hubs?
I've got a hub about a very hot topic (Olympic ticket availability) and Hubpages has marked it as overly promotional when it is clearly isn't (only link is to London 2012 Ticketing website). How long do they usually take to sort these things out?
To my knowledge you cannot use any commercial link. You may have a link to a blog, etc, of yours and have your link there if that place allows it.
I think HP are trying to make a good image to Google by trying to advocate for improved User Experience.
If you see a Hub is marked as overly promotional, you should not contest but work on improving it.
Remove all links that point to exterior website that does not relate to the content on your hub or point to affiliate promotional site.
You know Google does not like this too.
