To add to this question - I used a Links Capsule at the bottom of an article with 4 links. These go to four of my websites, all of which are commercial. Is this allowed or am I screwed? LOL.
In looking through the help files (yes some people actually read them), it seems like it's OK, but then I hear conflicting comments from different folks.
The rule is that the links should be directly related to the Hub. Since the Hub you're talking about is a Bio hub and not about a particular product, the links are probably not appropriate there. It would be best to move them to your actual profile. Actually the whole Hub would be more suitable for your profile than a hub, but it probably doesn't matter too much at this point.
The rule is 2 links out to any one domain, but having four commercial links in your hub -- even though to different domains -- is definitely ignoring the spirit of the rule, if not technically breaking it.
Can I ask then why four textboxes are included to post links?
You can have as many links in a hub as you want, as long as you don't have more than two links to any one website. So, if you link to marsha.com (for example), you don't want more than two links in your hub to marsha.com.
Is this what you meant?
If the written content on your hub is not your own (copied from elsewhere) then yes, you are screwed
On the flipside, if you have written the content yourself, it shouldn't be a problem. And provided all the links are on topic.
You can not add HTML, any form of HTML, into a hub capsule.
No affiliate code, no HTML code that Amazon gives you... nothing.
It will not work in a hub.
HubPages does not allow HTML to be used.
Let me clarify if I may - the rules state:
linking to products or services unrelated to a Hub's content
My Hub does mention the related sites
including more than 2 links to any one domain
I've not linked more than once to the same domains

Happened upon a hubber who has hundreds of hubs each dedicated to a specific item for sale which he is selling through Amazon. But for each item he has just included a link to click through to Amazon.Does this mean he is doing Hubpages out of their 40% share?

I am so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the circle? I removed 1 of the 2 Zazzle links and another to a blog which may have been...

Hi,I think Hub Pages needs to give us some guidelines when it comes to Hub Hoping.Over the past two days, in all my Hub Hoping, I have seen barely two passable sites. Evrything else has been either a paragraph or two, or have been 300 word promotional pieces from companies promoting their own...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...
