When I had a health and nutrition blog and I linked to articles on it from my hubs it seemed that my Google rankings actually went down. So I'm a bit dubious about doing it now with my new strength training blog, but I do have relevant content that I would like to link to. What do you do? Do you link your hubpages to your blog and does it affect rankings one way or another?
There was a time I linked to my personal site but at a time stoped. According to Google, an out going link from a particular site affects the site ranking.
As others have mentioned, in the past this was a pretty common strategy, but these days it's important that you are linking exclusively for your reader's benefit, not your own. We recommend only including links that supplement the content in your Hubs (not that simply restate the same information), and are directly related to the subject of the Hub.
yes, is usually write a short essay format in my blog and attach the hub link. I get external readers this way
If it's not tightly relevant, it shouldn't be linked, or it will hurt your traffic.
As Relache said, it's all about relevance. Linking to other, relevant, high-quality sites can actually *improve* your performance in search. Linking to unrelated or other, low-quality sites could hurt it.
Ok; thanks everyone. I guess that's about what I thought. I have a hub on 'best muscle building supplements' which I was going to link to an article on whey protein on my blog. As this is highly relevant additional information that should presumably not hurt right?
I used to link to my extremely relevant blog posts from my hub and I always wrote for the benefit of my readers - I've got quite a few...
However HubPages doesn't want more than two links to one domain. Apparently no more than two links can be relevant. (?)
So no matter that I've been writing on a topic for years and have a number of highly relevant blog posts which are just a small percentage of the links contained in my very specialised hubs which act as wiki type compendiums on an art topic - I can only include two of them on a hub.
So I either get to choose which two links I keep despite the fact that all are relevant (and/or two links from other very relevant sources of information - the same problem occurs re other sites) and create a lightweight site in terms of information.
Or I can move ALL of the content of my very specialised hubs about art topics to my new website - and both my readers and I are very happy again.
(Actually, there's more than one site. This time I'm building a number of mega niche websites inside responsive templates)
Currently, how many back-links do you have in total?

I have a personal blog, and I was wondering if it's a good idea to write a post where I add reference links to my hubpages articles? Is it a good SEO practice or a bad idea? thanks

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...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned...
