What, if any, rules exist concerning hubs that promote a specific product on the market? If there is a preferred brand over another and want to write about experiences with that brand is that workable?
No-one's replied at this point, so I'm just bumping the thread, Goldenpath.
I would imagine that if you want to promote a product or market something that Hubpages already markets there is no problem, but if they don't, you can include two links maximum to the site of this other product.
Would that be where you are coming from (as I'm sure you knew this already)?
I am not aware of any rule specific to a single product. Just follow regular rules I guess.
I'm just contemplating the content from a well established hubber from a couple days ago. She said that she started off by doing hubs that were product evaluations. That intrigued me and wanted to know the boundaries for that avenue of hubbing. I'm not good with names but she puts out one or two hubs a day.
I hate to say this, because I know you guys don't get a long, but seriously, Mark Knowels is one of the best there is on this. Browse his hubs, heck, even ask his advice ... typically as long as you stay out of politics or religion, he's quite nice. Of course, I love arguing politics and religion with him ... arguing with people you agree with is boring!!!
That's the way to write Amazon/Ebay hubs. Just go for it if you feel like that
Thanks! I humbly bow at the greatness of the vast multitude that are more experienced than I. It's been seven months and I still feel exceedingly green! I guess I still have that stigma that the internet is for a different generation than mine but I know that's all camel fodder!
I have no problems with product hubs at all. good luck, let me know when your selling Vuitton purses ok?
Here is a hub, freshly written in the last 48 hours.
Wordscribe wrote it.

Please do listen to what she says.
Yes and no Aya. Real money are everywhere, the trick is to figure out where YOU can make money. For example luxury market seems to work quite well for Mark, and does not perform anywhere close for me.
I have quite a few product hubs, as long as you dont go overly promotional you should be fine.
If the hub is deemed too overly promotional the worst that will happen is that the hub will be unpublished and you will have to edit it until it is suitable.
I have a related question, so thought I'd ask here instead of making a new thread (hope that's okay!)
Do people mind if you write product hubs as well or do they get put off by it? I know some hubbers have 2 separate accounts for that purpose.
I am typically put off by people who ONLY write product hubs. If someone writes a review of a product, and I "know" them from their other writings, I am more likely to trust them on the product review.
A "down" side... One should only endorse what one can truly endorse or you will generally lose all credibility.
The "sales only" hubs are typically written (often quite successfully I might add) by people with the attitude, "I don't care if people like me or not, I'm here to make money."
If someone is ONLY writing product reviews, I typically ignore them entirely.
Again, using Mark K, as an example, he writes along the lines of "How to cook something delicious" ... and also includes links and reviews for cookware. I love that style.
Thanks for all the replies. Well, I just published one out there. We'll see if it's any good! Of course - chocolate!
