Sharing hubs on chatroom and private chat

    Fellow hubbers, I've been having a doubt for a while now, and I can't seem to get it answered anywhere on HP. Am I allowed to share a hub's link on public chat rooms or on private chat? For example, can I share my link with a stranger on a site like omegle? Is such an activity against HP? I've never done it so far, but was wondering if I could do it now on...

      You may share a link to your Hubs wherever a site will allow you to share a link.  However, you shouldn't share a link to a Hub from a site which Google considers to be a spam site.

        That's interesting... but how can I be sure if google considers a site to be a source of spam?

          Well, if the site has porn on it or links to sites with porn, that's a clue.  You can also check the Google PageRank on the site's homepage.  That should be at least a PR3, and the higher the better.  I would say just look at the page where your link will be: Are there more than 50 links on the page?  Do the links go to webpages that you think are good pages?  Do you think the links will bring you traffic? Is your link on a page which is relevant to the topic of your Hub?  Did it cost you money to post the link? (That's a big 'thou shalt not' with Google if it is a followed link.)

            Thanks... I'll watch out then, and be really careful where I post my links!

              Imo you shouldn't get too caught up in thinking about whether Google will like the places you post links - just post them wherever you think real people may be interested and follow them. The one thing Google dislikes more than anything else is people modifying their linking behaviour in order to improve their rankings. Even if you feel you are doing what they want they might think it looks unnatural and take a dislike to it because of that (for example, only links from pr3+ sites would look very unnatural) - just act natural and forget about Google, and you are doing the best possible thing in Google's eyes.
