Hi, Im Kelly and Im new here.
I have a few hubs published but I dont understand a few things. First, what are the numbers that are posted in red next to the title of the hub and what does it mean? Second question...can you link from hub to hub? Like if I see someones hub who I think would compliment mine and vise versa can we link to each others hubs? Last question.....what does the number in the "score" in the profile on the side of the hub represent?
Thanks much in advance!
Welcome to HubPages. Why don't you have a look at the help section, here is the link http://hubpages.com/faq
Hi Kelly -
The red number on each hub is its score. This is worked out automatically from a number of things - amount of original content, incoming traffic, etc. You also have your own score as a hubber. This appears alongside your name and also on your image in the forum. This score is based on lots of thing - number of hubs and their performance, comments you make on others hubs, thumbs up received, maybe participation in forum. I'm not sure the exact list, but you get the idea.
You can link to anyone's hub if you like, using the url (address) that appears in your browser when you view their hub. You'll find a link tool in the tool bar of every text capsule. Of course you can't insist on the author linking back. That's a personal choice. You can also chain your hubs together using the groups option in your account page.
Hi Kelly and Welcome to HubPages!
I'd just like to expand on the previous comment. Yes you can link to any HubPage by copying the link that appears in your browser. BUT if you want to get credit such as Google Adsense Earnings and Referral Credit then you should click on the "Link to this Page" button located at the bottom of every page. The will contain your personal referral ID. Always Remember: You're are not only paid for creating quality content and generating referrals for the HubPage community; but you're also paid for sharing other hubbers' content as well. That's the beauty of HubPages!
Hello. Newbie here, too. Sorry to jump on someone else's thread, but I have a question about linking to someone else's hub. Is there any kind of protocol when linking to another hub of a different user? Should you contact the writer first and ask if they mind? Any kind of HubPages etiquette? Thanks.
If you're linking to someone else's hub, I'd recommend crediting them just prior to the link. Other than that, I can't think of anything. No one is going to mind you linking to them, as long as you aren't using it as a negative example of something.
People who have hubs you link to aren't going to mind because it's another form of traffic hopefully. I think as long as you're respectful, no one's going to mind.

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I...
