AdSense and Amazon capsules notwhithstanding, is it allowed to write an article singing the praises of a particular business?
There is one small business entreprenuer I would love to feature--a company that truly understands the concept of customer service. Whether you contact them regarding 'sales,' or 'customer service,' you are dealing directly with the owner.
I don't see why not, as long as you check with the business first. I have linked to an online business in one of my Hubs, and with any luck, that will drive traffic to them.
I have just checked the moderation guidelines and there is no mention of what you're asking, being an issue.
I've seen Hubs that promote a single business where I think "wow, what a great resource and balanced review" and others where it just seems purely promotional (which is one of the details of "overly promotional") and I hit the flag button.
It's a fine line.
ah, ok, ic...that adds a further detail, and most likely a problem, Hub-wise, as this is a glowing review. Perhaps better suited to my blog instead.
I think it's more than obvious when someone is overly promoting a business for their own personal gain, and it would depend on whether that person is a newbie, or, like yourself, someone who has good ratings, and more than a few hubs. I wouldn't DREAM of flagging someone's Hub just for reviewing a business. That would be awfully spiteful to do! HubPages does a decent enough job of flagging prohibited content, so post your Hub, praise the business, and leave it to Hub pages to decide whether it's allowed or not... not someone randomly flagging articles that they personally deem to be prohibited!

What is your opinion on people who join in Hubpages just to promote something?When I Hub Hop, I often encounter overly promotional Hubs. And when you visit the Hubber's profile, you'll only see 1 or 2 posts, and both are used to promote something (i.e. their products, etc). What's your view on this?

Currently, we are allowed 2 text links within a hub for links to our website, blogs, or articles written elsewhere.But, if you don't join the HP Amazon program, do you know that those 2 Amazon text links are not extra ones? If you use 2 amazon links, then you have used up your quota of 2 personal...

How can I correct a hub where I'm not promoting anything, which marks "overlypromoting"?I now notice that one of my old hubs (a recipe hub) has marked in pink saying needs revision, and overly promoted. When I checked they had some amazon links and I removed them completely. I also...
