Why are all my post being flag for overly promotion of other sites when I only have one link at the bottom of the article?
Are you using content that you or someone else has already published elsewhere on the web? HubPages does not allow outbound links on duplicate content. You can find this information at the "learn more" link next to warning at the top of your hub, and further explanation at http://hubpages.com/hub/Overly-Promotional
While Relache is right that linking to the same site over and over again will hurt your HubScore, especially if that's the one of the only sites you link to across all your hubs, that won't actually cause a warning or flag.
If all your hubs are promoting is that one site, that's why. Having the exact same link or links on each hub will hurt you as will too many links to the same place on just one hub.
In regards to what relache is saying... If you have only one site that you are currently promoting, does the site have multiple pages within it? If so, you could use different links to your site on your hubs. But only do that if your "promotion" is relative to your content. If you can, find other "quality" links that are relative to each respective hub and put them in as well. Have you added some related video & graphics? Hope that helps. Good luck.
Whyn't just place a link on your profile page to the website.
Ok, Well, the articles are submitted to ezinearticles before hubpages. If its duplicated, then this could be this reason. I understand that I can link them to different pages on my website as well so I will try doing that. But do I need to rewrite my articles just for Hubpages?
You will get a higher Hubscore (among other things) from original, high quality content.
Also, if I'm not mistaken, the link rules refer not to the whole URL itself, but the top level domain. What I mean is:
If you put a link on each of your Hubs to http://www.googleisabadsite.com, and that is the ONLY link you ever put up, but on your second hub you put googleisabadsite.com/1 and on your third you put googleisabadsite.com/2, it's still the same top level domain, still the same "website".
The phrase overly promotional definitely applies when you consider someone who slips their link in and attempts to loophole through like you're suggesting.
Actually, if it's duplicate, you can't link out at all.
If it's original, then max two links to the same DOMAIN - and an RSS feed counts as a double link.
If you have a pattern of linking across your Hubs, it will at some point bring your score below 75 so your links are nofollowed.
To avoid this, write two Hubs on other topics for each one you write that points to your site.
Looks like all his hubs got unpublished. Probably because he wanted to use hubpages as a marketing tool for his website (like all the videos about hubpages say to on youtube)

Dear Hubpages...Seems ANOTHER of my "roundup" app comparisons got flagged "overly promotional", AND "pixelated/watermarked pix/video" to boot. I don't get this "overly promo" flag, as all the links are to Appbrain, known Android software index. And yes, I...

A lens of mine that was transferred to HubPages was identified as having too many affiliate links. I cleared out all the links except one affiliate link and one link to Wikipedia. The only other links on the page are all the ads that HubPages loads up the header, footer, and sidebar...
