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?
