If say, I have 8 of my own web sites, they all linked to each other based on relevant content; at the same time, I've had some pages naturally linked to any one of them (related) inside the content. I've learned from this forum that links in the content should work better (and it makes sense). Now my new question is: does it hurt to have all my sites linked to each other since I believe it should be easy for SE to detect these sites belong to one owner? Especially if this way would hurt my ranking if most of my sites do not have good ranking themselves to begin with? I've observed that google again has just changed its ranking algorithm after Christmas (mine were greatly affected ), but unsure if this has something to do with the way I linked my sites. Any insight/advice/help would be greatly appreciated.
Few of my sites are as old as 9
oh, no, my question was drowned, must lift it up manually...
I'm actually anxiously waiting for some advice on this, since I want to revamp the linking part throughout my sites asap to see if that would help
Does it mean no one knows the answer or there's answer already somewhere here and my questions is redundant?
I think you did not give your question enough time.
I can only speak for myself. I have a very interesting setup with 7 sites. They are all wordpress and I made them so that each site is a category of the main site.
So, it looks like one giant site, yet is actually 7 different sites. They all do well and they of course all link to each other.
I also have other sites where I link to each other and I'm doing fine with them. Others may say it's not a good idea but I think it's fine.
For this particular case 2 hours is really a long wait, especially typically hubbers jump onto new questions fairly quickly, and new posts come in every minute, so I was worried no one would see my questions, therefore had to keep "lifting" it, hehe
Thanks for the comfort, though I am still wondering why I lost all the traffic I enjoyed before Christmas, and linking all the sites with one another was the major change I made not long before that, that's why it left me wondering. Hope there are more insight from other hubbers' personal experience so I could be comforted more
I've noticed strange traffic shifts too since the 1st. Even my ISP seems to be different, it's not "seeing" some of my scripts on my websites, strange.
So just relax and let it all work out for a few weeks. Got to get all the 2011 glitches worked out.

Hey Hubbers,I guess the more experienced Hubpages members who are more SEO technical are best to answer-I was just thinking about Broken Links and as I stated in another thread, recently I deleted 11 hubs from my list...

ok ... so if we copy content from another site on to a hub, it won't get published .. fair enough and I agree. However, if someone copies our content, we get an alert but our hub won't get unpublished as it's not our...

I wonder about duplicate content. I have an example. Peter Schiff and others publish on their blogs. Many of these posts end up word for word on Seeking Alpha, with a PR7. Opednews has a pr just like Hubpages of 6. They...
