Linking Hubs to Other Websites
Hubber Dave Mathews asked if it is possible to link one's hub writing to an outside site not affiliated with HubPages. The answer to this is yes. Whether you are linking your hubs or hubs by others to your own blog, website or other online writing website, you can promote your hubs (or others) in this manner. You can also post links to these hubs on social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter. This process is called backlinking. You are creating a link back to your hubs through these outside websites.
I took it for granted that all hubbers knew about backlinking, however more people are joining HubPages and do not know much, if anything, about backlinking. There are a few experienced hubbers who do not realize they are actually encouraged to backlink.
Please note: the links I provide in this hub are not meant to be promotional but for demonstrative purposes only.

The HubPages Widget
Every hubber's profile has a link to add that hubber's widget to a website. I have added my own widget to my website. Click the link to add the widget to a website. A window will pop up with the html code to do this. Copy and paste the html code to your website.
There are some free web hosting sites out there. I use yola.com for my free website. Yola has a template for adding html code to your website for those of us who are not as versed in html coding. There are several html tutorial websites if you want to add links to individual hubs. For example, you can create the html code for a hub link to use as your email signature. The link to the html tutorial site is very useful for the novice as well as the advanced user.
