    In interlinking your hubs which method is the best--using the link capsule or embedding the link in the text? Which one has do-follow attribute?

      In the Apprenticeship program, we are told to embed them. I have done it both ways with success.

        thanks Barbara, so I'm assuming that embedding is the method that has the do-follow attribute?

        Thanks for sharing that tip, Barbara Kay!!

        Indeed, Paul Corvan, we have found that links are best placed where they are most relevant- incorporated into the actual body of a Hub. These links are only going to be nofollow if you have a low Hubber Score, which you do not. big_smile

          Thanks Simone. So what's the score that hubbers need to maintain for their links to be do-follow?

    Links within the text are the best as far as the search engines are rumored to prefer when it comes to passing on juice to your pages. But you should on the whole consider the reader and place links where they are relevant and best able to help them.

    I use links within the text when I want the reader to be able to find out more about something, I also put additional text boxes in blue to one side when I feel that there is another area that the reader should look at also - these seem to be good to get the reader to click to another page. I also often put in a section with relevant links as a list if they will help the reader..

    BUT if it is not relevant and does not help the reader do not add it!! And don't worry about "do follow" too much, certainly not here on hubpages anyway..

      Oh, great point, LeanMan! Very true- one must link sparingly, relevantly, and judiciously!

    You need to keep a hubber score of 75+. 

    I recently read an excellent article that discussed internal linking in relation to having an article rank well.  He said that links within unique content pass more value than navigation links. He also suggested that links higher up the page have more value than links further down the page.  You want to link to your most important, relevant content.

    The article is worth reading. He has some great tips and insight.

    thanks rebekaELLE. I didn't know that the location of your links will also affect their value. I'll check out the article you suggested.
