I was wondering what can be done to promote visitors to my website forum-wise. I am aware that some forums do not allow selling of products on their sites, however a hub is really considered an article correct? Of course with many selling links on it. Can you get in trouble for posting your hub on forums? Should I read their long long user agreements before posting my hub link? I do read them but they all are too confusing and sound iffy. I tried to post a link on yahoo answers but for some reason my hub link becomes inactive and is cut short, so I was wondering perhaps they do not allow links from hub pages on their site? Advice please. I am 5 days old on hubs. Thanks!
That link above was about hub forums. My question was about other forums. For instance, if i want to promote my hubpage by putting my link in a pet related forum (Not hub related) or pet related answering website can I do so? This would not be considered trying to sell because imy hub page is really an article correct? I am just trying to adhere to legal guidelines and do not want to post my hub page on forums and being reported as advertsing products.
Welcome to hubpages
Well, you have to consult other forums' rules for the answer. We have no way of knowing what is considered good and bad practices on a particular forum
Sorry if my question appears as posting in the wrong place. I will try to re-word my question.
I do read their terms of services- but I guess my real question is if linking my hub page is considered advertising products or just submitting an article. I am asking here because I know many people post on forums on a daily basis and advertise doing so to increase traffic and I would like their insight. In other words what is a hub exactly? An article or a marketing website? Most forums do not allow advertising so I am posting here to find out what a hub page is really considered.
Here is a good piece on this subject:

Thanks, that is what I am planning to do, participate in forums and drop my hub page link where it relates. This should not be considered therefore advertising in my opinion since I am putting my thoughts and then putting a link about related articles from my hub pages - even thoughit is full of selling products-Am I Correct?
I tend to think that question has already been answered - It depends on the rules of the forum or networking site you are operating on and whether or not the link you leave is relevant to the discussion. In the meantime, check out my hub on:
The Most Expensive Motorbikes in The World
Thanks for the helpful links. I will try to contact the forum administrators. They all state advertising is not allowed, so I guess I will ask them if a hubpage is considered an article or a marketing tool. By the way, nice bikes, I wish I could afford one!
LOL - I was just dropping a link to that hub to make a point. It was completely inappropriate to our discussion.
Hubs are no different to any other web page and I doubt you need to specify that to anyone.
LOL, Alexa, you seem to miss the point - it does not matter what you advertise, it matters *how*.

I am working on an as yet unpublished (as of 12-30-2011) hub about Marquette, Michigan. I found some relevant photos online that allow commercial use, and I'll include the best of those in the hub. I also found some good, relevant photos that I can't use because the license says no commercial use,...

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much more than the link to the person's Hub.Surely the forums are places to discuss...
