Recently, I tried to insert a link to another hubber’s article into my hub. It didn’t work for some reason, so I had to list the connection as an http. I tried the insert function capsule in the hub design, and also inserting the link directly into the body of a paragraph.) I’d appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you!
Not sure, but I believe (could be wrong) but I do remember reading somewhere that with the new implementation of hubs scoring, HP does not want any internal or external links ...or the less the better.
However, it could just be another glitch and not related to the new hub rules. It does make it hard on those of us who do a lot of Spreading HubLove hubs, as the point of those hubs are to share others' work. HP may take away points with the more links contained in a hub. Well, it seems to the case.
Thank you, Faith, for responding. After reading through the comments, I think this is a glitch I'm experiencing. I wanted to insert a link referencing a hub I was responding to; it was a fun and unique writing challenge. I still can't get it to work for some reason so I had to list the link as an http: copy and-paste. I was embarrassed. I value your suggestions. :-)
But, you can link to one hub of another hubber that is related to your article. Hubpages, themselves mention related hubs at the bottom. But they may miss, which we think, more appropriate and related to your article. I recently linked one huber's hub on "how to create spreadsheets and tables" to my hub "how to create pages on blogger" and it went fine.
Faith, I think it has to do with the style in which a hub is written and crafted, and the word count. A well-crafted hub can support several highly relevant products from Amazon or eBay capsules. Plus, two affiliate links to "a website".
There were some issues that caused a few isolated Hubs to have issues adding links to existing Hubs. I will look for your email to see which Hubs on which you are seeing the issue so I can do a bit more research.
Genna, I checked the inbox for email@example.com and did not see a message from you related to this issue.
Let us know if you are still having problems. If so, please share the specific Hub, the link you are adding, the specific capsule, as well as the OS, browser and browser version you are using in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can look into the issue further.
I was able to edit that Hub and add a hyperlink to the URL in the first capsule.
If you are still having trouble with this Hub, please share the link you are adding, the specific capsule, as well as the OS, browser and browser version you are using in an email to email@example.com and we can look into the issue further.
I insert hyperlinks as I'm writing my post in Word. Then I copy/paste the document into the text capsules in HP. Once I do that I double check that the link is live by clicking on the chain in the text capsule. I most recently posted on April 30th and had no problem with the link showing.
Genna, I have only entered links connected to my Hubs and sites which I have gotten information from. If I have done a challenge then I link to others sites because they say to. I use the link button in the capsule(s) and have never had a probem.
I am writing a new Hub about my dog, and tried linking other articles I have written about her. I inserted four the usual way, but when I check the Hub, they are NOT there. Will try again later, I guess.
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...
I have a hard time reaching above 75 points on my QAP assessment. I have no idea what else to do. I made sure my text is correct, stylized and broken into digestible chunks, bold only on important phrases, headings,...
Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. ...
My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time...
I have tried to condition myself to use the referral tracker links whenever promoting my hubs. Sometimes I forget. Does anyone see any value in using them? Just wondering.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For fellow hubbers who don't...
