In the HubPages "Answers and Question" section, it is okay in the answer to provide a link to one of own Hub article?
What about in the Forum section?
What about putting own links in the comments of other people's post? Is that okay?
I don't think it is okey to put your own link someone's post.
If in doubt, don't. In the forums links to hubs you have are not allowed other than in the hub critique subforum.
General rule of thumb.
Only drop a link if it is relevant to the topic. Reading about how to make strawberry ice cream. You got a post on making the world's greatest chocolate ice cream, drop a link. You hove a post on why you like purple shirt fridays, don't link.
This thread is still in need of the precise answer from someone who knows the answer for certain. I don't happen to know for certain, so I'm not going to pretend I do. On HubPages "general rule of thumb" isn't necessarily what to go by, so I'd go with what psychskinner said ("when in doubt don't do it")
Just a note on the link-posting thing in general: So many people are under the impression that posting a link in things like other people's Hubs is OK as long it's "relevant". That's not necessarily true, as a lot of link-posters often discover. These days people are going to be more careful than ever about what links get posted where on this site.

OK I know a lot about links, but somehow I can't make a damn link to turn into a live hyperlink in Yahoo answers! I've done it both ways; just typing in the plain URL, and also using the full a href= code.None of them...

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?

Some hubbers are taking the mick with it. It's spamming. It's not allowed in the forums. If you want attention promote yourself according to good manners. Not by over spamming in the questions section.

I know this might seem like beating a dead horse, but...A lot of hubbers, even hubbers who have really written fab hubs and contribute a great deal of inspiration in the forums have been copying answers from other...
