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!

Hi all... I am still learning the ropes here at hubpages and have made $3.91 so far in about a month which is not wonderful but is at least slightly motivating. Anyway, I'm having trouble driving traffic and have to...
