Default does anyone link their websites from ebay's about me page?

How safe is this to do? I have just added a link to my site in emails to my ebay customers. But would like to add a link in my about me page.

It's usually fine as long as you follow the guidelines.

You may link to your own Web store or Web site. However, you may not directly offer any non-eBay merchandise on the About Me page itself.
eBay does not permit its users to place the following types of links on your About Me pages:
  • Links that directly offer any non-eBay listing or merchandise on the About Me page itself.
  • Links to other online trading sites or pages, including auctions and fixed-price formats.
  • Links to sites offering the same merchandise for the same or lower price (including the Buy It Now price).
  • Links to sites offering merchandise or information not permitted on eBay
On your About Me page, you may link to your own Web site or individual Internet store where you are offering to trade, sell or purchase your goods or services. However, you may not link to any page within online trading sites that offer goods from multiple sellers either in a fixed price or auction format.
