Is only once per individual Hub the 'standard'? For example, if I was writing a hub on glass etching, and I suggest using a die-cut machine to make your stencils, is it apropriate (or the norm) for me to just link back to my other hub once (say in the materials list) or multiple (no more than 2) times, say in the materials list, and when I am explaining the process?
I write tons of recipe hubs and usually tie them all in with my healthy eating hubs, too. After doing this I found a HUGE boost of traffic. I sometimes put them in the body of the article (if it's appropriate) and always put "other healthy eating articles" at the end of my hubs. I don't just randomly put hubs in these sections though, I stop and think about what the reader coming from a SE wants to read. I.e., i'm not going to put a cream puffs recipe on a low calorie lunch idea hub.So far, cross linking tons of my hubs on the same subject has worked incredibly well for me.
Also, I should add that I think some hubbers might think that "oh, if someone really likes one of my hubs, they'll go to my profile to read more". Not search engine traffic! (I don't have any stats, but I'd guess that is incredibly rare...SE traffic doesn't know that you have more articles under your profile). Each hub is a chance to get SE traffic onto more of your hubs, thus increasing your chance of earnings. I have been focused lately on trying to write hubs on the same topic to encourage SE traffic readers to keep reading my hubs (and hopefully buy something from amazon or click on ads)!
Oh, and one more thing, I think having more hubs on one subject makes you more of an 'authority' on that subject, gaining trust with your readers. I think the ultimate goal is to get readers to bookmark your hubs, or series of hubs to come back again and again to refer to the information. I have a series of hubs that has a much higher return rate that my other hubs because I gave a ton of info in one place that people thought necessary to bookmark to come back later and read more information.
I've had the same experience as girly_girl09. Link whatever hubs it makes sense to link. I really just want them to see a hub, click on an ad or click through to Amazon or Ebay and that's it. So I have an incredible bounce rate.
Therefore the links aren't getting people to visit additional hubs, what they are doing is getting individual hubs lots of search engine traffic.

With the latest tweak to their Hub-featuring formula, HubPages has pretty much destroyed the reason I signed up in the first place, two years ago. I was (and still am) in search of a site that would host quality...
