I know that if your promoting a product or program you can't link out to the products site but twice. What about adding links to your related articles on Ezine or Squidoo? Is this alright and whats the limit on links?
Scott, the rule is two links to another website, so the same restriction applies.
However, IMO you'd be crazy to link out to an Ezine article. Your Ezine articles aren't making you any money, so why would you want to send people away from a money-making article to a non-money-making one?
I guess I'm just trying to keep the person searching for info on web pages that I have created. I feel like this will increase my chances of having the searcher click through to my affiliate offering. I purchased a .info domain and then did a redirect to the affiliate program. Ezine allows you to link to directly to an affiliate program if you do this. I guess I was also thinking that by adding Ezine or Squidoo links to my Hub that I would get the additional back-linking help.
Am I wrong about this???
You have 2 links to the same domain name. No more than that.
So, if you have more than one domain name, then you can have more than 2 links out.
However, check the "overly promotional" rules to confirm that.
There is a two link rule on outgoing links, but spam is also defined as when a Hub solely promotes one other website. So, if you only have two links and they go to the same domain, that too could be flagged as spam.
You should be fine. Ezine is a different domain and Squidoo, too

I posted a story somewhere and the keepers of the site (Ezine) said my link or url link (something to that effect) was broken. I had posted the address as a copy/paste from my address bar at the top when the article on hubpages was up -- so the link to that story. Should I have posted...

I can't get it to work. I can link to my profile in the sig box, but the link to my I hub I put within the body article will not work. It changes the url I put in to http://hubpages.com/hub/&*%^%%$ or whatever the symbols are. It is then directed to a page that says Sorry that Hub does...

I'm working on a hub that accesses certain government websites and other organizations. Each has a home page, and then branching pages with more specific information (Duh, I know, bear with me)...So, say I list the home page as a link. But then, on a subordinate page there are several...

I know the rule of only two links to the same domain. My question is about when you have one link to a domain in your link capsule and then "someone from that" domain leaves a comment on your hub...does that also count as one of my allowed 2 links?The reason I ask is if they respond back,...

It took over a month, but I am now able to use shetoldme.com. Do you hubbers that use shetoldme.com generally send all your hubs to shetoldme.com? I wanted to send them back in July, but now I have over 100 hubs. Would it be a good idea to work on getting these links out there before working on...
