Why do I get a warning when I include more than two links per hub to my non-HP blog? The warning says that my hub contains more than two links to the same sub-domain (my blog), yet the links point to different pages on my blog.
It seems that it's OK to include more than 2 links to my hubs so why is one sub-domain (my HP sub-domain) immune to this rule while others aren't? Why the double standards?
It's basically to prevent you from using HP as a marketing tool to increase the traffic to your blog. As HP is an established site, it would be quite easy to steal traffic in this manner by repeatedly including your blog site, so as a rule, they can class your hub as being overly promotional if it points to a site more than once, and can also flag up a similar warning if there isn't enough content to merit a link.
