Linking hubs definitely has a great effect on alerting the search engines of your hubs relevance, and the sources of link references its driving other traffic too.
Make sure though that your links are leading to high quality hubs, or it may work against you.
Quality is king here on the web & especially on hubpages, this means you will need to think about how your hub is going to play such a role.
Make sure the content you can provide viewers is going to render them great interest, since the masses of viewers on the web, and not just on hubpages are also looking for better quality information, and visual presentation.
Try social networking and use of your hubpages profile onto them, I like to use my hubpages profile as a means for attracting my viewers from outside of hubpages, it might just do the trick for you.
How to do it: Simply place your hubpages profile url into your social networking profile space, if allowed to do so, like on twitter, facebook, or linkedin etc...
Note: Most social networks, allow for a single link to be placed onto them from an external source, as to identify your personal web presence elsewhere, and may have a module section to do so, so seek the guidance from their tutorial area if necessary
Bonus: try a cool web location known as ItsMyUrls, it allows your links to be shared across multiple networks all at once, and also allows you to brand your profile there with a profile bar code for sharing & scanning across mobile devices.
