When I read the guidelines for the Excellence thing, I noticed they said to remove those blue box lists of links and use only HPs groups. Some time ago I was advised to blue box links, and had them in every hub. Yesterday I removed ALL of them except one main link for each article and guess what happened? My view doubled and so did my CPM. Writer Fox was right...the number of links in an article must really count. This may just be a fluke or happenstance...time will tell. BUT...right now my views are right back where they were prior to the latest Panda. What are you thoughts?
Very interesting, good news. I ran into this confusion myself after EC award rolled out and attempted to fix my hubs. I was under the same impression as you were. I will have to go back and take another look. I did remove some links and grouped the hubs. Can't tell any difference yet.
Well, views have dropped back down again today...sorry. It was worth a try, anyhow.

I'm beginning to think this problem will never end!
Don't forget every time you edit a hub it counts as a view on your stats!!

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come up below? I just don't want overkill but like the thought that I've got my...

Is it typical for a hub to be flagged a second time for too many links?I had a hub flagged, I removed most of the links on the page, (leaving 2 or 3 to various sources), it was reapproved...then I did the tag "suggestions" and tagged 1 internal hub to another hubber and I was flagged...

Hey Veterans,I am curious. Recently Google made changes and many people are or have lost a lot of traffic, and I am wondering if the problem is too many internal links.I only ask because since Google's change, I have lost a significant amount of traffic, however many of my hubs are linked...
