ive noticed that when i drop a link on a message board or forum lately...if i test out the link and click on it...a new window pops up and either its a blank screen...or it loads incredibly slow...and never shows up...am i linking my blogs incorrectly?
When you say "blogs", do you mean your Hubs? HubPages aren't blogs, they're articles.
If you're adding a referral link, you may be putting it in the wrong place.
I've also found that on some forums, a link simply won't work, no matter what I do. Whereas I can paste the exact same thing into other forums and it works perfectly. I'm guessing there is some kind of "no follow" on the one that don't work.
Adding rel="nofollow" to a link would does not affect the function of a link, it just tells (some) search engines "do not count this link as a 'vote' for the site it links to". Wikipedia has a better explanation, than I can give.
If either of you (Marisa or ddayao) care to provide an example (preferably a link to the page) of a non-working link, I'm sure we can help you diagnose the problem.
And here I was, thinking I was so clever to have learned some jargon!
I can't recall where I had the trouble, unfortunately. I came to the conclusion that particular forum must have found some way to block people posting links in their posts - is that possible?
i think it might have been something wrong with my connection last night...i tried it this morning and its working again..thank you everyone!

I tried to participate in a conversation, and was quickly ganged up on and trolled to death by mean words and insulting gifs. They thought I was...

I am just scrolling down the forums and clicking on those I want to read. However, some of them show these weird reportpermalinkeditdelete things under each post, then at the bottom it tell me the thread is over 2 months old(and it isnt) and do I really want to post something. And there is a box...

How can I share my hubs on yahoo?
by Faith Reaper 4 years ago
I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? Also, it seems to be okay to place links in the forums' comments, as the link...
