I wrote an article several months ago and the layout included a section for links. Now, I am back to get serious but I am realizing that that section is not an option. All I see are "text" sections, except for photos. Was that option taken away or am I just not looking in the right place? Is it okay, to write a complete hub, but also add a link to a similar article on Hubpages or elsewhere? I know that it says that we cannot promote, but that is kind of subjective.
To add a link capsule, press the 'link' button in the upper right hand corner of the page or on the tool bar, and a link capsule will be added in.
Another thought: you can put in text anchored links, by highlighting the words in a text capsule and using the link button.
that link button will look like a "chain" link in the text tools in case you don't see it ,and won't appear until after you highlight the word you want anchortexted ;like irowen said
You can promote products, however, you are not allowed to have more than two links to the same site.
You can write commercial hubs, like Nelle does, that promote products from Amazon and EBay. Hubpages has affiliate settings to make it easy for you to do so. You can also have other affiliates, and use links, but no more than two to the same site, per hub.
Make sure that you content is original. Otherwise, you could be flagged for duplicate content and that will work against you more than help you.
Just a thought.
What happened to my link? That was MY article I wrote.
I'll just go on and revise now
Please read the forum rules.
Links are not encouraged in the forums, especially if they lead to something you wrote. The hub team probably snipped the link.
Save the links for your hubs.

Is a link to my own blog considered an affiliate link? I want to link from a Hubpages article I am writing to an article on my blog that further describes what I am writing about in the article.

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time...

I know it's been asked before. I've even asked it before. But is there a better and easier way to bring in links to a link capsule from another hub. It'd make linking series so much easier. I spent about 2 hours...

I am so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the...

Is it possible to add a feature to links within text and to the photos to opt to have the link open in a new window? This would allow the reader to stay on the original page. Bounce rates rise every time someone leaves...
