Hubpages has taught me a valuable lesson this morning. Not having complete control over your own work sucks!
It seems alright for HP to place completely irrelevant and unrelated links to other's hubs, on my hubs. All this in the RELATED hubs section. Yet links to my OWN hubs, that I feel ARE related is a violation of TOS.
HP's related hubs are so off topic they are ridiculous.
Oh well, lesson learned. Do not make the same mistake twice.
All links gone. I have given up the chance to redirect my traffic to my other hubs!
40,000 views a month and my hub remains unpublished. Simply because I had the audacity to try and link some of my other hubs?
Getting very discouraged. Getting very impatient!
How many of my ORGANIC links will be deleted as they will appear broken? How long before Google drops me from MY top search engine position?

I fail to see the need for the "related hub" section on each of my hub pages. Sometimes these hubs do not really relate to mine. Readers come to our pages to read the hubs we wrote or because they like...

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What...
