I own a company that provides non-medical in-home care for adults that I founded in 2002. I am considering writing a series of articles that are related to my job.
I intend to include links to these articles in our company newsletter, announce publication of hubs on the business' facebook and twitter accounts,etc.
Would it be acceptable to end my hubs, like this:
First and last name
Founder of On the Wings of Angels
Non-medical In-home Care for Adults
No other part of the hub will be promotional. By adding this signature, I will be able to give authority to the articles in the industry that my business is in - meaning that I am an expert.
Would this be acceptable?
Thanks for the help.
You should be fine.
If every single one of your Hubs had the same signature, you'd be in trouble - it would be classes as "overly promotional". However you already have 13 Hubs which I assume won't carry the link, so that shouldn't be a problem.
If it is, the offending Hubs will be unpublished, but they're not deleted so you don't lose them - and you can always publish them on another site like Infobarrel, Xobba or Excerptz instead.
Here's the link. I will leave it to others as to how to interpret it.

Thanks, paradigmsearch. I had already published it and it had already been flagged. I've removed the offending test and have submitted it for republication. It is the first of many in a series dealing with Alzheimer's
The answer to your question used to be a resounding yes. These days I'm not so sure. I do know that you are still allowed to put them on your profile page.
So, how do I direct this question directly to hubpages?
If you want to do this have you considered setting up your own web page just for that purpose. I am just wondering if eventually you might find that more effective as you would have total control over it and it would keep your interests separate from the business.
My business does have a website already that I control, and add to as I choose. I was hopping to use the articles in hubpages to expose more people to my other writings. Maybe it's because I'm so new to all of this and excited... maybe I really don't know what I'm doing or supposed to be doing. But, I'm having fun doing it. All of you are so wonderful with your responses. Thanks
2uesday, she already has a website. What she wants to do is write Hubs to promote that website.
Writing articles on sites like HubPages, Excerptz, Infobarrel, Xobba and others is an effective method of promotion and well worth doing.
If your hubs keep getting flagged because of that link, try putting it on your profile page. Leave the signature line as it is, minus the link. Then direct people to view your profile in order to see what your qualifications are. Maybe, maybe not.. just a thought.
