    I just read a reports that if you have more than 100 URL's on a page the search engines don't like it. Is this true as I have checked mine and everysingle one has more than that. Is this one of the reason lots of top hubbers have very few comments in their hubs, and why some even delete them.

    I cant see any URL's on some of your pages. Are you sure you know what a URL is?

    This is a URL: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/post/20940

    I doubt that are ever going to need to insert more than 100 hyperlinks in your content.

    Possibly more than a hundred U's, R's and L's, smile

    Even including related hubs, related questions, Amazon links, etc. it looks like you're still a long way off 100, don't worry about it, that's just for link farms, etc.

    I would agree with Mr. Voodoo on this one, don't worry about it.

      I also checked through the same link you mentioned and it is showing 117 links on one of my hubs when i have not inserted any.And it also says i have no meta tags and author tags.I am new to all this can someone help.

    Yeah it says the one I checked has 163, I'm guessing it's including everything from category titles, all the 'my account', 'my profile' tabs at the top, affiliate links, links to other hubbers profiles in comments, youtube vids, 'request hubs by this author', 'read more by this author', and so on...

    Don't worry about it.

    It is including comments from other people and even what hubpages puts on itself. I am very confused now and I have deleted my comment box on a few as one had 226 urls. Is this right we should not have so many. I think we need help before we delete the entire pages lol.

    Ha ha it is saying I have the words kinky and naked which could be excluded for adult content. I wouldn't mind but it's on one of hubpages bits promoting other hubbers. Should I not be using this. I did get the link from hubpages forum help.

    This is absolute rubbish.

    By this working, every page on hubpages will have more than 100 URLs.

    Hubpages is a PR3 or PR4 site..... there is absolutely nothing whatsoever to worry about.

    How do you all think that Ebay gets indexed? Why dont you go and run your test on an ebay listing.

    There are things all of the internet that cry out to be believed, its complete nonsense.

        No I know its not Helen's test mate, I was just emphasising that all of these little tools and tricks on the web..... believing them is a mugs game.

        If I could produce some sort of SEO tool and convince people that it would make them tens of thousands of pounds, then I would be laughing.

        Its just that 80% of the things I find on the internet is a bloody load of crap, it really frustrates me..... thats not Helen's fault.

          I could feel the stress oozing from you, lol, taking on three hubs in one day will do that to you. smile

          And of course you're both right 80-90% of everything on the net is bollocks, as I've found out the hard way before after following 'good advice' and watching one of my sites bomb as a result. big_smile

    As Mr. Voodoo said:


    As for the links, there is a world of difference between internal links and external links. Any decent blog's pages will have hundreds of internal links. It's expected and actually, without them, the Google bots wouldn't be able to find their way through your blog. Too many EXTERNAL links is what is bad. If you had 100 links to 100 different websites from one hub, Google would probably peg your hub as a "link farm", and probably rightfully so.

    As for the tags, the only ones that you have control of here on HP is what goes into your hub title (called h1 tags), what goes into the titles of your capsules (called h2 tags) and what actual keywords you put into your 'tags' group.

    So again, to reiterate what Mr. Voodoo said:

    Yes your right it is not mine I was on the help pages and a very experienced hubber put the link out to check density. Not knowing what density is or anything else as Ryan will tell you I checked it out. Always in the hope I will stumble upon something I actually understand. This is why I came here to check if it's correct. No harm intened

      Sorry Helen, I wasn't having a pop at you for posting it, just in a grump. I am in a snappy mood today..... been working on three hubs almost all day.... taking longer than I expected sad

    I didn't notice if you were, was so wrapped up in that link, was driving me nuts. I'm just glad I haven't got a whole heap of work to do sorting it out. I am learning that 90% of the information I am getting is for the bin. I trust a little too much and several times now have spent hours fixing things that maybe didn't need fixing. I should write a hub on not trusting everything you read in the forums and pages. The amount of times I need a simple answer and get directed to a hub that is full of mumbo jumbo. Then hours later I come across one that has no fancy words, but just the facts I need to know. I am understanding to be concise and clear in what I need to know. It's just hard finding the people who can help in a way that applies to computer illiterate blonds.

        Hi all,
        I see that nobody mentioned that hubpages is in fact a website in theory and as such needs to have some form of site map. The site map allows us all to jump back and forth between the forums,hubs and our user menu at the top of the page.If each page has a specific URL and there are as far as i know approximately 450000 hubs, surely some of the pages will refer to each other in the related topics section to allow our visitors to surf the site with a hundred or so different options.This is how i understand it.Hope it helps Helen.

      Hi Helen, I hear your pain!  There is a lot of misinformation out there and a lot of people looking to make money from newbies (don't pay for anything!). 

      The main purpose of the site you mention is to check "keyword density", which is the number of times the subject of your Hub comes up.  For instance, I might write a Hub on pointe shoes.  My main keyword would be "pointe shoes" and another keyword would be "ballet". 

      Google needs to know what my Hub is about. So I need to mention those words often enough for them to know that's my main subject. But I also have to be careful - Google also knows that spammers try to game the system by writing stuff that's full of keywords with no useful information, so if I mention my keywords every second word, they're going to decide I'm trying to game the system and they'll penalize me.

      I find the best plan is to write naturally.  I only add a couple of tags when I start the Hub - then when I'm finished, I go and look at the "suggested tags" HubPages gives me.  If they're relevant to the Hub, then I know I've mentioned the right words foften enough that HubPages can work out what the Hub is about - so Google probably will too!

    OK, if I may. smile

    To the best of my knowledge, around 100 outgoing links is the amount search engines can account for on a page. No matter external or internal. SEs just don't see any link beyond first 100 or so. This has nothing to do with ranking, etc. - this is just how many links search engines see on a page. smile

    Gosh it is slow and I am still having trouble with 2 things
    1)I have my hubpages profile and blogger showing up on adsense but my hubs are earning but not detailed on the adsense sign in page.

    2)I do not think my Amazon is set up right. I have the code in my affiliates but when I checked the link from something I was advertising it say invalid. So everything I have on there is not going to earn a thing.

    I can do 1 of two things. Either ignore the lot and delete all the Amazon. Not investigate my adsense and just be happy to earn even though I have no clue where it's coming from.

    If there is an expert who can help me without the jargon I would be very happy. Please no links I have gone through the entire Amazon and adsense help for information and received nothing I can understand.

    Have you set up hubpages and blogger as a channel on adsense?

    For the hubpages channel, I think that you just need to write www.hubpages.com not the link to your profile - as your profile is not going to be earning you the money. May be wrong, but I seem to remember being told this.

    As for Amazon, have you signed up as an Amazon.com affiliate?Because Amazon.co.uk does not work with hubpages (I dont think)

    Helen, in AdSense, you will want to set up URL channels for each of your hubs so that you can see how each individual hub is performing.

    In AdSense, click on the "AdSense Setup" tab (upper left). On the blue submenu that appears, click on "Channels". Around the middle of the page to the right of where it says "Custom Channels", click on "URL Channels". Then click on "Add New URL Channels".

    Now you have to laboriously smile list each one of your hubs individually here in this exact format with no www or http://:


    Then click "Add Channels" and you're done. You'll only be able to see individual data going forward, though -- no historical data for each hub.

    Now tomorrow when you check AdSense, to the right of where it says "AdSense for Content" and to the left of your clicks, etc., click on the link that says "Top Channels" and you'll see any hub that got a click or a paid impression.

    Hope this helps.

        I agree a short hub on this would help a lot of people, I have never bothered to check which specific hubs were making me money but now I am looking at optimising my configuration so I am very interested in what works and what doesn't which means I need to look at specific hubs. This was a very timely post for me and I have set up all my channels now as well , so thanks for the information, much appreciated.

    Woooo I did it ...I don't suppose you can help me with Amazon too can you? Thanks so much I spent all day yesterday reading every bit of information and no one just said it straight. I think you should write a nice simple hub on little details us newbies just don't know.
