...I have looked at the help/faq and I really couldn't find the bit that concerns me.
I'm wondering wether or not I need another hubbers permission to put a link to one of their hubs in my hub? I'll probably mail them anyway but I just want to be clear on the rule.
I hope I've not offended anyone by asking a question that's asked once a day... I did look I promise!
I am sure anyone would love for you to link their hub. Anything to increase their traffic. No you do not need to ask, but if you tell them you are linking their hub, and they link back to you, it could certainly help your cause as well. Even if you link theirs and never never link yours, still isn't a bad thing if it is a very relevant link.
Stop apologizing! I've asked a bunch of noobie questions, and almost everyone here is extremely nice. Forget the couple cranky people think!
Thank you for takin the time, everyone I have met so far have been nice. I think it was the 'read this first' thing that scared me a little, but the anser was actually in another persons question a while ago...silly me!
Stop apologizing, you didn't do anything wrong!!!
Yeah, well a lot of the times it is hard to find what you are looking for. Even then I'm still not a big fan of digging stuff up, and I prefer to ask a question in forums like you did.
Honestly there is nothing better than getting any problem fixed by forums, so I always post when I got questions. People can tell me to go to the FAQ all they want, I much rather prefer having someone willing to help me, as I would help them if I knew.
You can also click on the suggest links after your Hub has been published and check to see if you can link the hub using the highlighted word or phrase used in the related article.
The suggest links tool will give several options depending on the particular keyword highlighted. You'll catch on after playing around with the link tool a bit.
And welcome to HP!
Just a quick tip - the value of links that are reciprocal is lower in the eyes of search engines. One way links usually hold more value.
I m really sorry now because I did just find it! But thank you very much for answering anyway!
Yeah it's really relevant - I wanted to write a hub on something but I searched it and it's been done before. So instead I'm going to give further advice and link back to the person that's already done it for the basics.

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? ...

I'm part of a family full of people who don't say I'm sorry. I had to actually learn how to say those words. My mother never said I'm sorry to me for some of the hurtful things she said and did.Have you ever had moments...

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...

Hey all,I posted this query in an older thread of mine with no joy. In retrospect, I probably should have posted the question independently:
