There have been questions about links and scores, so I thought I would post this. It’s an outline to gives you an idea of how it works
Let me explain a little bit about links and other trivia to you
First, a hub is the whole area devoted to an article, the images, links, and etc.
In other words, your article is part of your hub, but it isn’t your hub itself
There are different types of links in different areas of a hub, and there is also more than one thing to take into account. Until you understand all of this, there’s no way to understand if, and how, links affect you
“Types of Links”
Those inside the article (body) (Not just in the Hub, but also in the article)
Those Outside the Article, in the Hub, but not in the article
Those pointing elsewhere ON Hubpages
Those pointing elsewhere, outside Hubpages
So with this information you have to break it down even further.
If the link is inside the article itself, and isn’t relevant to the subject of your hub, it could and most likely will affect your rating. If the links are relevant, it will probably help your rating, as long as they don’t somehow distract the reader. i.e. Too many relevant links
But now you have to take a look at the three “Rating” categories
Some can fall under more than one rating category
What’s affecting the score ?
i.e. If an article is missing subtitles, the organizational score would be lower
These are just some tidbits
I hope this will help someone with any questions they might have
I also wrote a thread about what I learned in the past from Hubpages,

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub...

This is getting silly. The last few Hubs I updated had all links to other Hubs snipped, even though these links were (a) on the same topic (b) helpful to the reader and (c) pointing to the same niche site. I really try...

First off, my hubs are transferred from Squidoo, and I am aware of various issues there. I'd already checked and edited hubs after the transition, so this is all post transfer.What I don't understand is why some...
