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

I added some links to my other related hubs into this hub today which was featured before. Now I can't see most of the content when I access the hub and of course the Featured icon is gone. http://anitasaran.hubpages.com/hub/Shor … d-DialogueThanks!

I just finished my fiftieth hub. Am I on a harder scoring system now? My profile page hubscore dived today from 97 to 92 in two hours.. Have I done something wrong? All I have done since is comment on a couple of pages, so what changed it so drastically. I have seldom been this low.My hubpages on...

I was just wondering if anyone ever leaves back links to their profile page on HP. I've really not done it myself, but I can see how leaving back links in hopes of building a higher PR profile page might help pagerank to filter down into individual hubs. But I don't want to do it if it...

I was reading through the FAQ and one thing that stuck out for me was the fact that after your Hubber Profile score reaches 75 or higher your website link on your profile is supposed to change from nofollow into dofollow. The links on my profile are all still nofollow links (I checked with inspect...
