    I know some subjects are banned and I thought I saw somewhere on here that lottery games might be one of them, but I can't find anything specific.

    Years ago I build a lottery statistics website, and would like to use the data I have to write articles here on HP.

    Is that cool, and can I link to my lottery statistics website?

    Thanks,
    Ray

      I've seen more than a few of these articles on HP so I think you would be fine writing your own original content. You can link but don't provide more than one link to any single source per article.

    Thanks. I poked around as well, and looks like I should be safe.

    I just looked at my Google Adsense numbers for March, for my own website(numbersplanet), when Mega Millions had that crazy $600m jackpot, my traffic shot up 10 fold. Crazy!

    Anyway, thanks for the reply. My HP article is going up momentarily.

    I guess it is worth considering this as it may or may not be relevant to your link

    From HubPages TOS (called terms of use) and accessed at foot of the page - this is one of the items listed -

    that's the one I remember seeing somewhere along the way. I have only one link in my article back to my own website, so hopefully they let it live. Not really promoting gambling, so if they flag my article, they need to flag all the other lottery articles.

    Trying to get back in the HP groove after being away for a few months, lost my mother in Jan and still haven't quite got into the mood to do anything outside the daily grind of the day job and other necessities.

    Anyway, thanks again.
