Would it work to use a link to a page on your own site and then use a 301 redirect to send people to the affiliate link? Or will hubpages pick that up?

Yeah, most sites can easily pick up a redirect and do not allow it. I know we don't allow redirects at Street Articles and I imagine Hubpages would have something in place for this as well.

Getting Content accepted.
I have twice tried to publish a hub at hubpages, but keep getting the following problem:

"This hub contains links to a prohibited site or affiliate program, such as:

Sites that contain pop-ups that interfere with site navigation, for example, when clicking the back or close buttons, or that redirect users to unwanted websites
Links to eBook sales pages and lead capture forms
Affiliate or promotional links in subject areas containing a high proportion of low quality, dubious, or promotional content (for example, forex, acai berry, MLM, and weight loss)
Links to sites that contain links to any of the above (ie, a blog that links to an ebook sales page, etc)
Commonly used affiliate programs are evaluated based on the totality of how they are used on HubPages. While some of the offers or sites promoted may be ok, if a preponderance are not, then they may be prohibited anyway. Clickbank is an example of this. Unfortunately, we are not able to make exceptions to this on a case by case basis. However, if you feel that your links have been incorrectly categorized (and it's not Clickbank), please contact us.

The following links are to a prohibited site or affiliate program:

http://onlineincomereviews.siterubix.com/wealthy-affiliate-review (onlineincomereviews.siterubix.com)
Note: It is your responsibility to remove any links that match the description above. This list is provided as a courtesy; the classification of links is subject to change."

Does this mean I am going to have to start again with a new domain and if so can I just migrate the whole site to a new domain name?

Thanks

Greg

Send them to a different page on your site, try that. They have probably grouped any product that is related to "making money" and disallowed all of them (and I don't really blame them). Instead of sending them to a review page, send them to a value based page on your site that explains something. That should fix the issue...and if not, submit your content somewhere else.

Increase your vocabulary by learning a new word + definition, every day or two. I keep a running list in notepad.

That is a great idea...and read lots, it will lead to the natural intake of new words. Also, when I learn new vocab that I like, I tend to try to use it in my writing so that it becomes part of my writing vocabulary as well.

In my experience if you can tell a friend or family member about a product you like and believe in you can write an article that people will enjoy reading.

Exactly, the same goes for a product that you don't like. You can write brilliant stuff on that as well that is interesting and people would read. Good idea Ty!

If you think you can write, you need to give it a shot. You might be surprised at how good of a writer you really are. Content is king and WA is the the place to learn how to do it. I have found you are only limited by your desire to achieve.

And how good you can become simply by doing. Also, perfect writing does not mean effective writing. People need to realize that their readers are use to reading stuff via text or on Facebook all day using strange pseudolanguages.

If you strive for content perfection, not only will you get very little done, it won't be perfect. Nothing is never perfect and you are far better off having 10 not so perfect pages on your website, then one page that you think is absolutely perfect.

This is true. I was an English major in school and I think that leads to all kinds of writer's block hahaha. . You become so afraid of not being "perfect" that you don't do anything at all. Look at Joyce and Faulkner-they practically created new languages! And all we're doing is writing online content. Don't be afraid to take the leap, folks.

Absolutely, couldn't agree with you more. You will connect with people much better if you don't come across as "essay" style and focus more on conversational speak.

The way people create content and absorb content has changed drastically over the past few years with social networks and "shortened" conversations and as content creators we need to cater to that.
