    When I publish a hub this question is asked.  I always untick the box as my postings are all just hints, tips and opinions or advice and information.  However, can you please link me directly to the definition and explanation of this term so I am aware of its implications.

    When I write for the hub, my content is written live, a brain dump. It's unique and fresh.  However, it sometimes contains links to sites (not mine).  So, also, what are the rules/best ways of linking to your own site/s?

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    From hubpages FAQ located at

    What does commercial mean?

    Commercial hubs are required to have an ad level setting of High. Your hub is considered to be commercial if it meets any of these conditions.

        * it is monetized through a non-hubpages affiliate mechanism
        * it contains links to other commercial sites
        * it promotes a for profit business, especially a business that you have an interest in

    Hope this helps you wink
