I tried to link up one of my recipe hubs to a new hub and it keeps coming up as a bad link. The bad link is the following hub:
All you have to do is retest the link. Go to your account stats page, on the left in the black box look for broken links, click on that. A window will appear with all your bad links, click retest. That should do the trick. I have been having the same problem. If that doesn't work then remove the link completely and try replacing it tomorrow.
Cardisa, thanks for your helpful comment. I seem to have a lot of bad links which I'll probably have to replace.
What I found strange in my case is, that one of my own hubs comes up as a bad link. I linked up my pumpkin hub with some of own my pumpkin recipes and that's when I noticed that it came up as a bad link. I find this very strange....
Remember that you can't place your hub links in the forums. Forgot to mention it the other day. Can you still delete it?
The bad link thing has been happening frequently since the new changes so just retest them if possible, I find that works. An you are very welcome.
Ooops, I wasn't aware that I couldn't post the link and of course now I can't delete it.... My general problem is, that I am an occasional hubber and I mainly joined because I like writing. I find the hubpages contains so much information that I could keep busy 24 hours a day just by reading up the technical stuff and I don't have time for that. I'm a hobby hubber and I don't do this as a profession. I am glad for helpful pros like you who give advice.
All the links in that Hub looked fine to me.
Perhaps the Hub to which you linked was not published at the time or the URL was not formatted correctly.
Please let us know if you have any further issues.
As others have mentioned, you can retest links that show as broken here:
Matthew, thanks for your valuable input. I realized that I should have worded my question differently, as it was misunderstood. My hub itself was a bad link (it didn't have any bad links). When I tried to link said hub up with a new hub it just kept coming up as (bad link) and no matter how much I tested and re-tested and removed and added that hub, it still came up as a bad link. However, I removed and added the hub again today and finally it came up as normal! Thanks for your help.

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

Hi there,I've been hearing discussions that noindexing hubs (because they are idled) impacts their backlinks in some way, and I'd like to find out if this is true.I've been researching this a bit online and have found the following:- According to the Google Webmaster forum, Google *does* count...

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via "embedded" links(anchored text) have not been coming up or being flagged as...

"A potentially broken link has been detected in this Hub."Has anyone else had this flag and after checking the links, there was nothing wrong?

I am curious what you think about people that post links to their other sites (hubpages or others)?I have been getting lots of comments but that have links to my hubs, and it seems they are trying to promote their stuff on my pages. I am curious what you think about this and others as well....
