I write on food and cooking, and I'm often writing a hub and need to explain a concept about which I've previously written about. It would be simpler to simply link directly to another hub instead of repeating myself.
The reason I don't do it is that I am worried about a google perception of creating false backlinks.
It would be great if I could both create some backlinks, and as well provide the info I want to my readers.
Should I be worried about this?
I too wonder about this issue because I tend to write about groups of topics and subdivide the subjects into different articles so that I can go more indepth with them. Is this a bad idea?
Thanks for the advice. I use the groups feature too, but since I have a fair number of similar hubs, they don't necessarily link up to an exactly related hub...
I might be writing about how to cook a certain cut of steak, and want to link to a very much earlier written hub on how to cook steak on a grill, and I just wonder if this type of internal linking between pages is seen by google as back-link manipulation, is a positive thing ;or makes no linking difference at all in terms of building traffic?
I don't link to other hubs in every hub I create, but do it sometimes.
Check out the links at the bottom:
I've seen other hubbers do it, so I don't think it is a problem.
I do it all the time. It hasn't hurt me in the slightest. But now that I'm reaching 100 hubs, for organization's sake, I'm going to create directory-type hubs so I only have to link in one place. It's worked well for me on my Recipe Database.
Thanks Maddie and Stacie,
I think I will start doing as you both are already and linking together my hubs when related.
Stacie, I love the look of your hubs...very professional!!! And I'll follow your lead Maddie and start sub grouping my hubs.
This practice in SEO (search engine optimization) is called internal linking and it helps not only get traffic, but with your rankings. Just do it naturally where you think it will help people. Use good keywords in the anchor text rather just writing "click here".
Thanks for all the information in this thread. I did not know what a banklink is, actually. lol I'm still figuring out the scoring system I think.

Is there any value in linking to your own hubs within OTHER hubs and your profile page, in terms of search engine page ranking? Any advantage at all? I've seen a lot of people do this.If this is a silly...

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?

This is actually three questions.1) Is the average of all of the individual HubScores significant in any way? Does that number affect or change anything?2) In discussions of the Suggested Links Tool and HubKarma,...

I've read on the forums that it's a good strategy to link from your Hubs to your blog and vice versa. However, whenever I do this, the editors remove my blog link. How do people promote their blogs on Hubpages?

If you use HP groups, should you still link hubs within a series? Or just rely on the groups? Should you do both? Neither?Is one more preferred over the other? Is one better than the other?I'm just trying to figure out...
