ive noticed that when i drop a link on a message board or forum lately...if i test out the link and click on it...a new window pops up and either its a blank screen...or it loads incredibly slow...and never shows up...am i linking my blogs incorrectly?
When you say "blogs", do you mean your Hubs? HubPages aren't blogs, they're articles.
If you're adding a referral link, you may be putting it in the wrong place.
I've also found that on some forums, a link simply won't work, no matter what I do. Whereas I can paste the exact same thing into other forums and it works perfectly. I'm guessing there is some kind of "no follow" on the one that don't work.
Adding rel="nofollow" to a link would does not affect the function of a link, it just tells (some) search engines "do not count this link as a 'vote' for the site it links to". Wikipedia has a better explanation, than I can give.
If either of you (Marisa or ddayao) care to provide an example (preferably a link to the page) of a non-working link, I'm sure we can help you diagnose the problem.
And here I was, thinking I was so clever to have learned some jargon!
I can't recall where I had the trouble, unfortunately. I came to the conclusion that particular forum must have found some way to block people posting links in their posts - is that possible?
i think it might have been something wrong with my connection last night...i tried it this morning and its working again..thank you everyone!

Has anyone ever participated in message board sites like The Nest or Something Awful? I recently started looking into them and they're so bizarre to me. I tried to participate in a conversation, and was quickly ganged...

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? ...

I have noticed hubbers with experience talk about letting articles age - and they will start to gain visitors. I don't understand this. Check out key words, write it and 24 hours later it's on Google.So how...
