I always thought we weren't supposed to and that the only way was using Amazon Capsules. But, after reading this page I realized that its allowed. Am I right or have I interpreted wrong (unlikely that I read it wrong; but, I wanted confirmation as I've not seen anyone do it either)

Yes but no more than two per hub, as per the overly promotional rule.
Remember, if you link to a singular domain across all your Hubs, at some point it will trip a filter that will drop your author score like a rock...
Are there any recommendations or suggestions about a wise distribution or ratio of domains? That is, if I have 4-5 different domains in my 72 Hubs (that's not correct at the moment, just an example) would that be considered enough? I understand, or believe, that there's no hard and fast rule; I'm just looking for some guidelines.
I'm not going to be linking to any products through text as I prefer using capsules instead. But, I was just curious as I always thought that it wasn't allowed - just my ignorance I guess.
Relache, HubPages dropped this rule some time ago. There was a discussion of it on the forums a while ago and the change was confirmed.
You can link to the same domain on every Hub if you like.
I am still trying to work out why they decided to drop this rule, it seemed like a sensible one to me...
It's good to know this. I missed the discussion of it and the confirmation by the staff. The last time I actually checked (some months ago), it was still in effect. Do you have any ballpark estimate of how long it's been?
I don't know when it was changed. I think I noticed it about six months ago.
Jason dropped into a forum discussion on overly promotional, mentioned the "two rules per domain rule" and didn't mention the "one link on all domains" rule. Someone (me?) picked him up on that, and he responded that he didn't think that was a problem.
I then compared the rule in the current Learning Centre with the rule quoted in someone's (older) Hub about being "overly promotional". Sur enough, the sentence about one link in several domains had disappeared - but I don't know when it happened!
The important thing is that it doesn't apply now, so if you want to take advantage of that, you can do so - even on older Hubs. I know one Hubber who has a "signature" at the end of every Hub which is her name and website.
There are strict rules on keeping links 'related'. If you have a domain or TWO related to your topic, then you can list them. Only 2 hope that helps.
Isn't that two per Hub?
My question related to the number of links across my entire subdomain - all of my Hubs in total - not each individual Hub.

I get a lot of traffic from the Search Engines and I see a lot of people asking how do I get listed in the search engines. The answer to that is simple I tell them. Yes I know the myth that you should let the search...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time...

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. ...

I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when...

I like to add in-text links when I'm talking about certain products as I not only think they are some of the most effective, but also some of the most helpful. What I don't understand is why there is a limit of 2...
