    Lately, whenever I post a link to one of my own HubPages articles, I also post a link to someone else's HubPages article. I'm doing this in the hopes that it will help all of us. Thoughts?

      When I find other hubs worth sharing I certainly do so, but I want to avoid the risk of appearing to be a spammer.  As you know, we've had some issues in the past with HubPages and one of the niche sites being blocked from Pinterest (not sure if that ever got resolved).  I think a lot of people do self-promotion, but don't balance it out enough with material from other sources and domains and in the end that can potentially hurt all of us.

      I run several successful niche Pinterest boards and I actually seek out new material from others to pin rather than sharing the same things over and over.  I also make sure my own pins on those boards are around 10 - 20% of the total.  This has worked well for me and of my 2.5 million views, the majority are from Pinterest.

      I think promoting others here is great, so long as it is done with care and that it isn't just hubpages/niche sites stuff that one is promoting.  Otherwise, that can get us all into hot water.  Traffic on one of my best hubs plummeted after the Pinterest issue.

      Sharing, like most things, is better when done in moderation.

        Yes, if one doesn't just post their own stuff, but posts good-quality articles from others, this can prevent problems.

    Athlyn, I think it's a generous idea with good intention. But as ChristinS explained, we have to be careful. I recall a few years back, during some low traffic crisis, I suggested something similar in the forums and it was poo-pooed by the vets. It had something to do with not being "organic" and could raise red flags to Google. I love to share a good article occasionally when I see and use the social media buttons to do so.

    I try to share the articles of those who I have introduced to Hubpages... unfortunately many of them have stopped writing, left and their hubs are not featured any more, so when I go to their profile there's nothing there.

    Others I have introduced have "peculiar and obscure articles" that I can't feel I can share in any purposeful way on my social media...else I would.

    If I had a handful of good writers who I'd introduced to Hubpages, who'd written 10-20 good articles ....I'd share them regularly perpetually.
