This Hub excessively promotes another site.

    One of my hubs has the notification below on top of it.

    This Hub excessively promotes another site.

    Can anyone more experienced point out what does this hub over promote?
    It only contains 3 different links, only one of them is an affiliate link, is this the reason it`s over promotional?

    It usually means all 3 links are pointing to the same domain.  Hub Pages prefers a maximum of 2, but I have seen them reconsider after a manual review.

    Does that mean we can link any no. of different sites and only problem is with linking to same sites.

    There isn`t more than one link to any one domain in the whole article.
    To be more precise there are four links pointing to different domains.
    One of the links is a referral link. Is it still over promotional ?
    I just had a look over my hubtivity section and noticed the following:

    Thanks for any advice that would clear this out for me.
    I just don`t want to repeat the same mistakes on and on.

    Alex,

    Bringing those issues to the forums is counter-productive. We can't see your unpublished hubs and can't advise therefore. Work it out with Maddie by email, this is your best and only option. In case you still don't know, her email is team@hubpages.com

    Thanks Misha,

    Had no idea where to ask for help regarding this issue, will mail Maddie.

    smile
