Would you recommend linking from your blog post to a Hub page, or from your Hub page to a blog post?
To increase ranking in Google search and to increase traffic.
I rather post my hubpages link to my blog because here i earn more than there. Of course traffic is better here, need extra traffic get from blog
Because of the two-link limit here on hubpages, I link FROM my blog TO hubpages. I would worry about being "overly promotional" if I didn't do it that way. Also I do it that way because of the rule about duplicate content. So I give an overview of the topic on my blog being careful not to duplicate the wording and then link back here to the long hubpage article.
I'd PREFER to link from hubpages to an article on my blog because my blog looks much "prettier" than a hubpage article and I can embed a slide show that I have control over, mp3s, even little talking avitars from sitepal, etc. But like Peachy said below, traffic is better here. Someone needs to come up with a more flexible interface. I hate to complain, but it is my personal opinion that hubpages needs to keep all the great things that work, but seriously update the look of the articles that we have out there to the public. I feel like I'm driving a '57 Chevy here.
The norm from an SEO perspective is to link to content that has relevant information that serves to expand on the topic on which you are writing. This also improves user experience because your readers can read more about a specific subject on the external source you are linking to.
Obviously, whilst you want to provide maximum information to your readers and widen their knowledge, you also want to make the most out of Google's approval to pass SEO juice from one website to another. In this case, the proper answer to your question revolves around the following, which you need to figure out first:
1) The source that has better PageRank; is it Hubpages.com or your personal blog?
2) The source that you're looking to promote; is it your Hubpages blog or your personal blog?
It is very much likely that your blog has less PageRank than Hubpages.com (otherwise you might not be here asking), so then, Hubpages wins for the first part. I am also assuming here that you'd rather promote your blog over your Hubpages account, because then, you'll have much more freedom on your blog when it grows to manipulate your revenue and content than on Hubpages.
There's also a need to indicate that HubPages articles are more likely to be indexed faster by search engines and have more pageviews than normal blog articles... and that is all due to the authority of Hubpages in search engine rankings.
As a result, it makes sense to link from Hubpages to your blog to:
1) Pass some SEO juice to your blog
2) Direct your Hubpages traffic to your blog.
But keep in mind that you should not overdo the cross-linking. Simply locate a key part of your Hubpages article, and link a part of it to your blog in a way that your Hubpages readers will be tempted to at least open your personal blog's link in another browser tab. And, of course, choose good anchor texts to link to your blog; preferably, select anchor texts that are actually targeted keywords.
Hope I helped!
I would go from your hub page to your blog so you do not get a duplicate message from hub pages like I did.

You may ask yourself , what is sticky? It is anything that makes your Hub stick in the mind of your surfer. 1. If you spend a lot of time creating a great hub always some where on it encourage the person to bookmark your Hub Page. Tell them to push CTRL +D to bookmark your page. It can be 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 question, please forgive me; I'm still relatively new here. Thanks.
