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
Basically a good backlink comes from a reputable site. So it depends on how reputable your blog is as to whether it's good SEO to link from there to an article on HP. Natural backlinks are considered good for SEO.
So basically what I'm saying is that I don't do it because it seems like bad practice to me.
It's good SEO, but HP will come after you with a hatchet.
Edit: Oops, still on first cup of coffee and I read your Title and OP backwards.
HP loves you when you have links going FROM your blog TO your hubs.
HP shoots you when you have links going TO your blog FROM your hubs.
Time for that second cup.
It might be tolerated if done VERY sparingly. You also need to have very strong justification of why the link would be beneficial to your hub.
Hubpages is not going to care if you link to hubs from wherever you can that is not illegal or misleading. Go for it.
Oh gosh I read the wrong thing too! Yeah. HP wouldn't bother at all. I have an entire section on my blog linking to HP. It doesn't affect SEO too much too, in my case at least.
How do you know it doesn't affect SEO? And is it providing any benefit?

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...

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...

I was thinking of splitting an article into 2 or even 3 different hubs because it was too long. How many words should our articles have before we can publish them on HubPages? I checked the HubPages FAQ page but the only word count listed there refers to the total number of words that an article...

I am still pretty new to online writing so can someone explain why it is better to post articles on hubpages rather than your own blog? it cost nothing to make a blog, you can lay it out like a webpage, and keep all the ad revenue.
