If you have noticed, those who are trying to promote their website are limited to put links on the article.If you do so, then you will be violating the rules and be tagged as overly promotional..Try to look on the hubscores of those considered themselves "internet marketers" and compare to those authors who obviously are writers. So if you are trying to promote here on hubpages, it's not a place for you. You will just be considered a spammer here.
Hmmm... Hubpages management should take some action (I guess)
Unfortunately, I have been in some forums that recommend using HP for article marketing. While I believe that you can do that in a good way by writing a truly helpful hub and placing only one or two links, I think some folks don't even bother to read the TOS, they just jump in like it's a free-for-all and go link crazy. They're not writers at all. HP doesn't screen articles like Ezinearticles and others like them, so the lazy ones probably think this is wonderful. They don't even worry about whether or not their content contributes in a positive way to the site.
Why on earth they think that anyone would want to bother with them when they do that is beyond me. Perhaps, they're just taking advantage of being associated with HP. I don't know, I'm just a writer.
I write to promote my sites and I consider myself a real writer It's why I publish websites to begin with.
I truly believe that writing junk/spam content isn't the way to promote your site either here, on ezine or anywhere else. I try to make all of my hubs useful, readable and of good quality in their own right. I always write for readers first - call me old-fashioned, but I have other things than SEO in mind. I want actual readers who may find my hub to appreciate my writing enough to follow a link to my site.
My point being, not all website promoters spread junk/spam.
Oh, and check out my hubscore

Is HubPages trying to discourage its writers and get them to quit writing?Every time I publish a hub my Hubber score goes down then it goes up by 1-2 points and then down by 1-2 points. Then when I am not on here for a day or two it goes down by more than 2 points. This is very...

Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?

It seems to me if I promote my hubs here I will be shafted - but if I don't you will never know about me. And if you don't know me now (after two years) - you may never know me ever! So I'm not promoting my hubs - I'm merely promoting "me"! To know me is to love me - or vice versa. Anyway...

How does someone on hubpages get a large following without writing hubs?When I am hub hopping, I have noticed that there are many people with little or no hubs and they have hundreds of followers. I see that some of them are following many people and I understand the reciprocity factor but I don't...
