Another question that i want to ask about Helium rules is if the writers allowed to create links outside Helium website in order to drive traffic to a specific article.

Such like on a blog, or a posting on a forum? Yes. I maintain a writing blog where I post a certain number of links to my Helium articles. Sometimes the links are just to my profile page; other times, I chose a specific article to link to (especially if it relates to the current subject of my posting).

That exactly what i am talking about and as i can see there are button-links after the submission that refer to social-bookmarking networks perhaps for this reason.

I was actually asking this question myself when I first joined Helium. After reading the rules on regulations on the site, I realized that it was "legal" and ok to post links to your articles in other places on the web, such as blogs, social sites, P2P sites and any other way you can think of. It's a good source of income if you can generate traffic to your articles. I did put a link to my article on a P2P site, but unfortunately not many people are viewing the link; but still, it was worth a try. Good luck with posting your links and wish you all the best in earning those pennies! =)

Yes, Helium actively encourages this since it brings traffic to the website and increases income for writers and for the site. Do it, it really is worthwhile.

Yes, Helium not only allows you to put links out there, but encourages it. More traffic for your articles benefits the site as a whole. The only thing you can't do is spam. Post your link in your profile on other sites, like here at Mylot, post links in forums where the topic is relevant, and send links in emails to family and friends. You can look on the community boards on Helium for more information about how to make money with Helium and for more ideas for increasing traffic.
