The ad level has a check mark for "high" followed by "This hub may be considered commercial.
What exactly does this mean. Is this a good thing and if not, is it ok to check a low level?
If you want to earn from your writing mark it up as high so Google and Hp ads can be plastered all over your hub.. if you do not want adverts ..tick low. But I guess you want to earn, so high may be good for you
I've heard that too many ads will hurt your ranking on Google. Will marking it as high put enough ads on your hub to hurt its ranking?
I have a few commercial and most not, sofs, and I see the same amount of ads on both. Or...... I am missing something. Any insight on that?
Now, I understand and know what commercial means. I will keep the ad level at high then. Thanks so mucn.
If the hub promotes a business or if there are any outbound links to a commercial site - one that sells products or services, collects donations etc. - then the hub is considered commercial, and the ads level must be set to high. However, HubPages maintains a list of sites that are considered non-commercial due to their public beneficial nature.
Would this apply to Amazon and eBay? Would those links be considered commercial?
Only if you were to use your own affiliate links, i.e. textual hyperlinks. Capsules with links that are part of the official affiliate programs (shared between the Hubber and HubPages) do not make a hub commercial.

I've always wondered this. Can anyone shed any light on what ticking or rather un-ticking that little box does, please.

I get a warning that my hub is "commercial", but I have no ads and no affiliate links and I...don't link to any sites that do. What's going on here? Hub Pages cannot be "hobby pages"?
