Question for Moderators & Administrators:
Is the HP linking system set up so there's no inadvertent reciprocity between 'related hub' links on accounts? In other words, if the site autofills 'related link' on a hub in my account to a hub in "Sue Smith's" account, does it make certain one of my hubs doesn't get linked to a hub on her account?
It's my understanding that reciprocal linking among subdomains is not good. I just wanted to make certain there's no accidental reciprocity, in case the system is set up to recognize related titles and subjects but not set up to avoid back-and-forth linking.
Marcy, I am not exactly sure how that works behind the scenes, but I have sent an email to Paul Deeds and Paul Edmondson asking them to chime in should they have any insights to provide!
Many thanks, Simone (and see, this proves you need to stay at HP - what will we do without you???).
The question came up in some FB discussions among Hubbers, and none of us knew how that worked. Thank you for helping to find out the answer, and whether that would indeed be a problem if it were happening.
Oh, HubPages will be better than ever without Simone Dead Weight holding it back (I'm sitting on our traffic graphs... they're sagging).
The initial reaction back is that the "Discover More Hubs" feature should not hurt things. We're not 100% certain, but you never can be with Google ^_^
Thanks for checking it out, Simone - I know everyone is busy there, so I appreciate the time that took. Hope that's indeed the way it works!

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

I'm curious to hear if there are any hubbers, who saw a big drop in traffic after the most recent Google Panda and Penguin updates, have fixed their issues and are getting good traffic again yet?I think it would be good...

Now, not before, when you place a link, you have a choice to click rel=nofollow so that search engines ignore it. So in future hubs that you write or if you want to go back and edit, do not check this box for links to...

This is actually three questions.1) Is the average of all of the individual HubScores significant in any way? Does that number affect or change anything?2) In discussions of the Suggested Links Tool and HubKarma,...

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a...
