I don't know if this is correct ethics or not. But I've noticed that there has been links posted "around" my articles other than the comment section to link directly to the same affiliate products I am promoting in my article.
comment: Are you too darn lazy to create your own article or web site that you have to "ride" on the work of others?
To Hubpages: I would appreciate an answer to eliminate this problem!
Hi Slick, my name is Terence. Those links you're talking about are called Adsense, an advertising program created by Google.
You can register yourself with Adsense. This will be financially beneficial for you because Google will pay you a commission every time a visitor on your hub clicks on one of those links.
I haven't had the time to look into Adsense as I'm barely a month old here. But a lot of the more experienced hubbers like Mark, Darkside and Gamegirl might be able to fill you in on the details.
you outta be happy theres somebody on your site 67 Geeeeez
.....and by the way, you're not supposed to write a Hub solely for the purpose of promoting a single product. It's likely to get flagged as spam.

If I write an article and have a related product listed on one of the affiliate sites like Amazon. Can I use the link for my product? or is that a conflict of interest?

The same person has twice commented on my hubs leaving a link for a related product, I think; I have not clicked on the links. She joined 8 months ago, but has no hubs, followers or following. Her only activity is commenting and posting links. I'm surprised she is still here.

It is important to actually read the hub you are commenting on. It seems that every time I publish a hub I get at least one comment saying something that proves they didn't read the hub. In the future I will be deleting these comments even though they are well intentioned. It will better for your...

commenting on your hubs?just wondering because someone just did on mine, Im just thinking it would of been more polite to ask if we could of done a link exchange, that way we'd both benefit, now im stuck between deleting a good comment or not

One of my hubs was just flagged at being at risk for a Google Adsense program policy violation. I have no idea why except that I posted that hub url on She Told Me and Xomba. If anyone has any idea about the possible reason for this, please let me know. Many thanks in advance.

I have someone who keeps on adding a link to their comment. Thus far I have denied the comments, what should I be doing with them. The comment is always nice but I think they are just using me to promote their links.
