In everyone's opinion what is the best method for internal linking to achieve the best results here on Hub Pages.
Besides that, I was looking for thoughts on the best linking strategy between hubs,thnx for the answer though Wrylilt.
Well I usually use my tags to create custom RSS feeds.
Edweirdo has good stuff on that.
I try and direct traffic from my high traffic hubs to low traffic hubs.
In what manor though? Do you use the auto linking of groups or do you add links to other hubs in a link capsule at the bottom of a hub? Do you string all of them together in any of these manners leaving a trail from one all the way to the last?
That is what I am looking for ideas on the best linking (actual linking ) between individual hubs to your other hubs.
Groups are almost worthless - it's one or two links right at the bottom of a hub where not many people get to.
I usually either create a relevant in text link with a tracker, OR use an RSS feed on the right hand side.
If I feel it's relevant, I'll use both.
I use the interlinking tool after I've made a hub. The part I like best is the ability to highlight words to get suggestions when using it.
1. Doesn't insert a tracker into the links, meaning you leak traffic to other people's hubs with no reward.
2. Means that if someone uses all the suggestions (as many new people do), as well as kontera, the whole page looks like a confusing minefield of advertisement.
Our tests show that interlinking Hubs has a very positive correlation to increasing traffic to the pages that link out - even if you don't link to your own hubs.
I personally saw significant gains in traffic and I link to my own hubs and other peoples depending on what I think is the best resource.
I use some of the recommendations but usually select the phrases my self. It takes a little knowledge to know what to link out with that will benefit your hub the most. I suggest trying to link to three to six of the best hubs with anchor text that supports your hubs.
Here is my traffic graph. If you look at the inflection of my traffic - where it starts growing quickly, this happened after interlinking my hubs. I got another boost with using the title tuner.
People that use it wisely will get more rewards than they give up in my opinion.
I have some of my articles linked together based on topic and related nature.
I have set them up as groups as well. I use the link capsule to assist. I use "tag" RSS feeds to promote other people's work and mine as well.
I use anchored links, linking to my other hubs also.
So, at any given time, I could have more than 20 links on my own hub that leads to another hub.
I only deal in "Life Topics", "Social Issues", "Politic in America", "Celebrities" and "Sports Apparel".
Not trying to self promote, but if you go look through my Halo reach series of hubs you will find how I did my internal linking.
It is unorganized but highly usable. My google traffic probably sees 4-5 of my articles before clicking away.
Just to make it clear:
I am against the suggest a link tool.
I am for internal linking of your own hubs.
Paul, were you inserting links to your own hubs or other users hubs?
he mentioned he links to both his own and others.
I'm sure being CEO of HP, he knows what works.
I like the link tool and use it on many, but not all of my hubs. I've also seen increased traffic with a few of those linked internally. I also use the link capsule and rss, but I don't do the same thing on each hub. It depends on the topic.

Now, not before, when you place a link, you have a choice to click rel=nofollow so that search engines ignore it. So in future hubs that you write or if you want to go back and edit, do not check this box for links to...

I know this is going to be a big no, but honestly, I would be motivated to write more hubs and clean up old ones if I got paid 80% instead of 60%. Even 70% would motivate me more. Anyone else feel the same?

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?
