I noticed this message yesterday when uploading a picture to a new hub:
"Source URLs in photos are counted as links for purposes of determining if a hub is overly promotional)"
Does anyone know what this means exactly -- does it mean if I attribute my photos by URL (as most who offer their photos for free request) my hub will be tagged as promotional? I don't think I'm understanding this fully.
It basically means that it's included in the rules for all links.
In other words, you can't have more than two outgoing links to one single domain (excluding official or well known sites such as wikipedia.)
For example, if you had two photos taken from ronsblog.com with attribution and wanted to place a link to ronsblog.com, this would be considered overly promotional, since it violates the two outgoing links to one domain rule.
Ahhh, I see, it makes perfect sense now. Thanks for the great response, WryLit! I'll have to go back and edit some om my photo attributions now because I think I had a few hubs with repeat attributions. Gla dto figure this out now, with 18 hubs, than a year from now

While I was creating a hub, I read that all source links for images will count towards determining if a hub is overly promotional. Are they checked and confirmed by staff, or just automatically detrimental to hubscores?...

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?
