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

Some of the blogs I have put on Hub Pages are ones that I wrote for my personal blog. Of course, I quickly learned that is not allowed and I took them down. My question now is, can I "reblog" them to my personal site now that they are primarily on HubPages to try and direct even more...

Links to Personal Blog?I used to have a blog, but it was quite personal. I've been thinking about starting it up ...again, but it's quite personal, about the weight loss journey. I don't know if it would be a good idea to link it up with my Hubpages account.

All,I would like to generate more traffic to my Hubs from outside sources, as it is my understanding that these are the folks that are more likely to 'click.' Don't get me wrong, I appreciate your reading my Hubs, too, but just want to add a bit more into the mix.Could someone please make a...
