I wanted to write a hub about marketing tips for self-publishers. I was going to name some people that I've recommended for marketing books, but I didn't know if it was considered promotional to name individual or company names. I don't have any interest in promoting anybody, just trying to be helpful and point people in some directions.
Hi Donna, actually recommending people is a way of promoting their products if someone purchase from them.
You can promote anything you like, but if you are going to put links in your hub, then you cannot put more than 2 links to any individual domain.
It isn't wrong to promote someone's product or recommending it either, but would be "overly promotional" if you put more than 2 links to their domain.
I would hope that you are using the techniques or the product yourself, so your hub would be a review "type" of hub.
I hope that helped.

Just something I noticed. The hubs that have been edited by Editbot have already picked up more traffic than what is usual for them, even after dismissing my view to see the changes. We also know that Google loves fresher content. Is it possible that our Google overlords see this as a sort of site...

How are our backlinks affected by all this?Is there any value in using sites like Ezine for backlinking now? I had stopped using that because the articles I was posting there were getting butchered. But in reality I'm only looking for the link, so I was just about to start up with them again.And...

I've heard that Google is going start giving less rank to sites with ads at the top of the fold. I have Google Adsense banner type ads just below the description of my page on my website. Do I need to remove these? I have a site with around 100 pages. This sounds like a lot of work. Do I need to...

I have heard a rumour that linking to ebooks is not allowed here now under new rules and need to check if this is true and if it applies to Amazon Kindle products? The reason I need to know is I have a book on there now and want to promote it here and if I search on Amazon it comes up. So is it OK...
