Question about adding affiliate links within your article
I've been searching the forum for a recent answer to this question. Is it still permissible to include an affiliate link (such as to a product where you receive a commission - separate from the typical hubpages Amazon or eBay affiliate programs), or has that practice been banned?
Yes, you can still include affiliate links, but only a maximum of two to any particular doman, more details here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Mode … romotional
Bear in mind that Google *may* devalue pages in search results that have a very high proportion of affiliate / advertising content compared to real content.
Yes you can but some affiliate networks such as clickbank are not allowed. Unfortunately, HubPages won't tell us exactly which affiliate networks/links are ok and which aren't so my advice is to just try adding the links in your hub (2 maximum) and hitting publish. If you've added a link that's not allowed you'll get a notice at the top of the hub. If you don't get a warning notice then you're good to go.
Of course you'll have to ensure that the product or service offered through the affiliate link is tightly connected to the content and something that the types of visitors you get to the hub are going to be genuinely interested in.

Last night I couldn't get an amazon capsule to appear in my new hub. I kept getting a message that says "Something went wrong..." I need this capsule to show the product I am talking about in my hub.

Do you more experienced Hubbers believe writing about controversial topics like politics hurts or help your page traffic? For example, if you disagree with someone's political Hub, will you not visit their other Hubs?
