A couple of months ago my hubs went awry and was advised by staff not to use it but to create my own links. I wanted to know if anyone still uses it and if they noticed any change in their hubs or account.
I've never used it, since its introduction. It makes hubs look spammy and means you lose traffic to other people's hubs.
Thanks, but I'd rather redirect people to my own hubs, not give free traffic (and ad clicks) to someone I don't know.
I've been using it as a quick way to create anchor text links between my own related hubs. That's the only thing I ever use it for -- sparingly -- and usually at the very end of the hub.
I've only been back for a few weeks. No problems so far. I agree with QuestionMaster -- I never saw the benefit of sending a reader somewhere else in the middle of my article... On the other hand, interlinking is supposed be helpful. It's all an experiment.
