I've read http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/linking-tool and found the only real reason to use the tool looks like for HubKarma score.
Using this tool only makes sense to keep traffic within the HubPages domain, which is what HubPages wants, I'm sure. But the tool takes readers away from the original article on your subdomain, which is pointless from an author's perspective.
Do you use this tool? If so, what value is there in it?
I started using it yesterday I think
I linked my hubs that are related to the topic I treated. And all the hubs that were linked came back to life again (You can guess I am not talking about money here) after being forgotten for a long time.
As I started using it recently, I can't give conclusions. Maybe I am even using it in the wrong way. But the first results were pleasant.
From an earning standpoint, there is no benefit to the hubber . But to give the reader more pertinent info than is contained in one's own hub, it does help. I don't believe most here actually pay much attention to it, but I may be wrong about that!

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...

We've realized for a while that with our existing tools it can be very time consuming to manage links across a large portfolio of hubs. Many Hubbers have tried to handle the interconnecting of related hubs using...
