        Good question -

        I'm new here, so I'm not sure I understand the answers below, but here's what's in the FAQ on what makes a Hub Overly Promotional.

        **************************************************
        FAQ

        My hub was flagged as overly promotional, what does that mean?

        **************************************************
        Answer:

        Purely promotional offers and Hubs designed only to promote other sites or businesses are not allowed. In particular, the following actions are likely to get your hubs flagged:

        - linking repeatedly to the same site within a hub or across many hubs

        - including links to a page that contains largely the same content as your hub

        - linking to products or services unrelated to a Hub's content

        - including more than 2 links to any one domain

        - short "teasers" with links to "read more" at another site

        - including promotional links on content that is unoriginal (i.e. not exclusive to HubPages); promotional links can only be included on content that is exclusive to HubPages

        - linking to the same domain in the body of the text AND in an RSS feed

        Please note that promotional links are links that you have any interest in promoting (your blog, your Website, affiliate offers, etc.). Links to well-known Web resources which you don't have any personal interest in (like Wikipedia, news sites, encyclopedias, open directories, etc.) are exempt from this limitation.

          Thanks for this, but hubscore differs from authorscore! x

    I don't think there is a limit on your profile. I have links to all my websites and places I write. I would imagine you wouldn't want to go over board and have hundreds.

      Arh.. thanks!  It seems that profile page is a safety net - probably the only place that we can promote our 'vested' interests! Thanks, girl.. you've helped me out again! x

    Does linking to your profile affect your hubscore?
