Over promotional?!

    HELP!  One of my hubs was flagged for being overly promotional.  I've been trying to delete links like crazy and it won't go away!

    You're probably going to have to submit the Hub to admin for review to get the Hub republished.

    If you've been flagged, then you need to reduce the number of links out-going to one domain to two links. The rules regarding over promotional is that you cannot have more than 2 links to any specific domain.

    You can have two links to one domain, then have 2 more links to another domain, but you cannot have 4 links to the same domain.

    I hope that helps. smile

      Do you think it matters if the links are in the comments?  People put links in the comments all the time and because I have over 1,000 on that article I have no idea if they have been repeated?  Thanks for trying to help.  I would be sad if it got deleted!!!

        I think you should email Team@Hubpages.com and ask them that specifically.

        I know links outgoing from hubs cannot be more than two. I don't know if comments with links to more than one domain would cause problems.

        I don't think they have an effect, because you didn't put them there and the links are inbound to your hub, not outbound. At least to me, that's my understanding.

        I also know, you cannot use a "Link" capsule or "RSS" capsule linked to the same domain either, if you already have two links outbound.

        Again, I hope I helped. smile

        do you want all of those outgoing links in your comments?

    Outbound links in comments are no-follow, and it is my understanding they do not count towards "overly promotional."

    As a general remark, there is more to the overly promotional issue than excessive outbound links. Hubs with duplicate content can have no promotional links at all, landing page-style hubs are not acceptable etc.

    I could be wrong, but I think it only depends on the actual content of your hub and not the comments.

    Remember that links in your photo captions count as well.
