    I am writing a series of unique and original articles on a few different energy healing techniques, each founded by the same person. I think it is important that I link to the website of the founder of each technique in each article since each article stands alone. Will three or four articles that link to the same founder�s website prompt an auto-detector to mark the articles as spam? The first two have already been accepted by HubPages, but after completing the �tag� phase (with many of the same key words) on the third article, I saw a warning about spam. There must be some way to write a series and still give credit where credit is due. Any tips?

      More than two links to the same site in each hub is considered overly promotional.  Repeated linking to the same site across all hubs is also considered overly promotional. Your hubs could get moderated for that alone.. since it is on the same subject inter link your hubs with the anchor keyword which could be the founders name..  conform to the rules of HP reading the FAQ
      Send a mail to to explain that this series and not spam, could help.

        Thanks, sofs. I took your advice & emailed the team and here is what they told me:

        "You are allowed to link to the same domain from multiple Hubs. Just be careful that you do not link to the same domain 3 times in a single Hub. That would violate our terms of use as being overly promotional. You may also link to Google as many times as you like without the concern of being marked as a spammer."

        That rule has been removed, sofs.  Nobody announced it - but it came up in another forum discussion some time ago.  So Jennifer will be fine.
