Is it a good idea to have a link to a HubPage account included on a Wikipedia page? I understand there was some sort of problem between the sites. Please let me know what the situation is about this.
Do you mean a link to a hub or article, or to your stuff as a hubber ?
I can't imagine that it would be a bad thing either way
I mean is it OK for hubbers to have links to their profiles here if they have Wikipedia pages about them? And is it a good idea to post HubPage article links as backup references on Wikipedia pages?
At one time, HubPages was blacklisted on Wikipedia. I'm not sure about now though. Probably hasn't changed. I tried putting in a link to a page on this website, and it wouldn't go. You can cheat by breaking the link, but it doesn't look pretty, and the mods there wouldn't like it. Someone might discover that you tried to work around the filter by breaking the link.
Thanks for letting me know! This is what I feared.
You're welcome. You could try a personal website that has links to your HubPages profile or articles...
Worked for me.
I was trying to find out on behalf of CJ Stone as well as myself. I told CJ I thought there was a problem with HP at Wikipedia. You have confirmed I was right.
Glad to help. By the way, my phrasing in my previous comment was a bit off, perhaps. I meant to say one could link to a personal website in a Wikipedia article. Having links to your profiles and articles from a personal site goes without saying!

This may seem like a silly question, but I was wondering:I am currently working on getting a Website up and running, and the purpose will basically be to have a portfolio online. Am I able to essentially copy and past my own articles, or link them somehow (I am learning here lol!) without rocking...

I was listing my hub on one of the pages of wikipedia when it gave the following error:The spam filter blocked your page save because it detected a blacklisted hyperlink. If you did not add the link yourself, it most likely was added by another editor before being blacklisted. You will need to...

*ARGH!* After having searched the help guides, FAQs, and old forum posts, I simply have not had any luck in finding an answer to my question about Amazon/eBay affiliate payments. If someone could answer this question for me, or perhaps provide a needed kick in the keister towards the relevant...

In reviewing my traffic sources recently, I noticed that I was getting traffic from a site called traffup.com, which I had never heard of before. I went to the site and signed up for it to see what it was all about, and found that someone had posted a link there to one of my hubs. I thought...

Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that are not published here, but elsewhere. Earnings are less than 2 bucks a month....
