Hi everyone! My name is Ali, and I hub for fun. I don't take revenue on any of my articles, so my ad levels are set to low. Recently, my hub 'How To Raise a House Rabbit Pet' was flagged for violations because I linked to the same domain 3 times. The hub is not promotional in any way. There were just several good resource articles I wanted to point to. After my hub was unpulished, I realized I needed to remove one of the links, so the hub was re-approved. However, now the ad level must be set to 'high' or I receive a warning that says 'this hub appears to be promotoinal'. Could anyone provide any insight into why this is happening and what I can do to correct it? Since the hub is NOT promotional, I would really prefer the ad level to be low.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Except for the several places where you say "I recommend..." and then link to a specific product or another website. You can't get much more promotional than that.
Sites which serve ads or earn money in any way are considered commercial, and hubs which link to them must have ads set on "high."
The site FAQ discusses this, http://hubpages.com/faq/#commercial
If you want to be able to turn off advertisements, the best strategy is to remove any and all outgoing links.
Relache gives a good explanation. Why not sign up for Adsense and the HP program anyway?

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If it is re-submitted and is not fixed properly you could be banned from...

I'm pretty new to HubPages (joined 6 weeks ago but got "busy" about 2 weeks ago posting Hubs) -- I got spanked last week and had a hub taken down temporarily for citing direct links to the particular information relating to multiple parties (all of which linked to SEC.gov, but different...
