    I recently discovered a great hub that relates to one of my hubs, and I was wondering if we were allowed to suggest that in our hubs, and provide a link to it? I know there is a generated hub link at the bottom of our hubs, but this particular hub is not one of them, and I would like to add it.

    Can we do that? or is it not allowed?

      HubPages actually encourages this, as long as the hub is relevant.

    You can link to other hubber's hubs within your hub if they are related in just the same way as you would link to any other related work.

      Cool. Just wanted to make sure it was ok, before I did it. There is always something that might be considered a no no.

    I make it a practice to show links to related hubs in my own hubs. For quite a while, I took the time to send a brief email to each hub author for whom I did this, but have found I don't always have the time.

    What I do for certain, though, is take the time to vote on any hub I am linking to in my hub and often share it in one or more ways. I feel that if the hub seems good enough to use for a link -- and that is going to make my own hub that much better for doing so -- the least I can do is vote for/share that hub.

      That's really useful info! Thanks for the tip - anything that makes hubs more useful must surely be encouraged!

    Hi bri. If you copy the URL from the hub you liked, you can then add a link capsule on to your hub and title it " related hubs from other authors" ( or similar) then just paste the URL in the box provided. I do this a lot on my hubs and you will see what I am trying to explain if you nip over and take a look. Actually I have some on camping too, I did read and vote on one of your camping hubs, it was very good.

      PS. I always contact the hubber to say how much I have enjoyed what they have written and ask if it´s OK to link it to one of mine because it may do us both some good to do this.

    See also the staff hub Referral Trackers & The HubPages Referral Program.  It says in part:

    "In addition to earning rewards by introducing new people to HubPages, you can receive a percentage of the total impressions just by sending visitors to Hubs - no Hubbing necessary. If the Hubber who wrote the Hub was referred to HubPages by someone else, you’ll get 9% of the total impressions. If nobody referred this Hubber, however, you get 12%. Whatever is left from the splits above goes to HubPages. Note that these splits apply only to Hubs."

    This is done by putting a certain code into the link URL that lets the system trace it back to you and give you the credit. The same code is used when introducing a newcomer to hubbing.

    You can link to a related hub as you would to any other to any other Web address, either as an in the text link using the chain link icon in edit mode or within a Links capsule, except for inserting the referral tracker code as instructed.

    Or you can use the handy Suggested Links feature. See it at the top of your hub when you are logged in but not in edit mode. With that on, all links in the hub will be highlighted and when you put your cursor on any other word, the system will suggest any hubs (if any) that relate to that word. If there are many, the HubPages does not always suggest all of them or the best of them, so I often also use the word in a Google search and add the site; instruction.

    See more at the staff hub How to Embed Links into Your Hubs.

      This sounds great; not sure I understand how you go about embedding a referral code into someone else's Hub URL.

          Thanks! This is great not only so I can promote other people's hubs, but so that my friends can sign up for HubPages and earn money off of my hubs - and increase my traffic to boot!

    I link to other hubs all the time, especially when I feel that the other hub can add more to the conversation and further help my reader. I never contact the other person to tell them I've linked it though, so now you all have me wondering if maybe that's something I should start doing?
