Hi, I have been using allot of my own photos. In the properties of the photo I enter myself as the author. When I upload the photo into a hub I use my name as the source.
Should I instead be sourcing the photo to the URL of my Hub profile page, or other method?
Thank you for your advice.
Do not use a link to your subdomain in photos. That's a dangerous practice because doing that too many times is considered spam linking by Google. The links in the photo capsules are all followed links so be very, very cautious about using any URL there.
Thank you for this advice, taken on board.
I have seen hubbers place the link to their subdomains either in the text capsule or within a Made for Pinterest photo. Is that okay or not advisable either?
On each of your Hubs, you already have a link to your subdomain. You shouldn't give another one. As far as placing a link on a photo, there is no way to do that on HubPages.
Just use your name as the source. You do not need to list the source or place a link if you own the photos/rights.
A better scenario would be to place one link to your work and leave the others photos without links. i.e one link on one photo and no links to the other photos within one hub
As many Hubbers have kindly mentioned, you can can credit your own photos with your name or username. If you'd rather not use a name, you can also simply put "author," "self," etc. Since the photos belong to you, you can pretty much attribute them however you want, though it's good to let your readers know that they are your own photos somehow, since it helps build author credibility.
Whenever I us my own photos I use my username as the source.I may take Luis's advice and link one to my blog.
I like to put my full, real name as the official photographer.

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

If this is not the correct place to ask my questions, please let me know where to go on HubPages, or if I should send an email to the people running HubPages.A few months ago an expert hubber with lots of experience and success for a time offered free critiques of hubs in one of the forums. I asked...

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

I want to be sure I'm doing this the right way. I've been showing Audrey Hunt and the photo date for attribution on my own photos. I've also used Audrey Hunt/vocalcoach (my hub name) and the date of the photo. The Learning Center doesn't give information for attributing your own...

Currently, we are allowed 2 text links within a hub for links to our website, blogs, or articles written elsewhere.But, if you don't join the HP Amazon program, do you know that those 2 Amazon text links are not extra ones? If you use 2 amazon links, then you have used up your quota of 2 personal...
