I want to know if I can put referral links in my HubPages articles. If I can, is there any benefit to doing so? I understand how they work, but i don't know if it works differently if we use them on our HubPages articles as opposed to external blog articles.
Enlighten me if you will. Thanks.
I appreciate the answer, but allow me to ask in another way.
I didn't know of it not being a good idea and put the referral code within all anchor text I had linked to other HubPages articles. Please tell me I don't have to remove them all, lol...?
Hmm, I should have replied directly to your post, but it doesn't matter. The previous post was an anxiety driven gut reaction. After briefly reflecting, the links are redundant at worst is what I am understanding, so there they stay. Thanks again Simone.
I am wondering one thing though about placing the referral link off site... Isn't there a chance Google will view these as paid links?
It would depend on the referral link you are wanting to link the Hub to. I am pretty positive that Hubpages does not want all those Affiliate Links to garbage and other digital products that promote garbage. Link to your other hubs or you can try even an amazon product (but you can link to amazon right in your Hub). Try to stay away from bulk sales...promote something unique that there are not millions of others also promoting.

Okay, I'm trying to figure this out. Is it advantageous to use a referral link in your own hubs when linking to other hubs of your own? I notice some people use them, but most don't. I mostly haven't, but I'm wondering...

I just started hubbing and I was wondering if those who had been here a while could let me know what kind of results they have had with the referral program? Has anyone tried running advertisements with their hubpage...

Would someone please explain to me what Paul is talking about when he says the team is removing referral links inside of hubs and is asking that we not use more of them in new hubs? I'm a bit foggy as to...
