I thought it was a no no on HP to link in a hub to your own other hubs, but today I came across a hub (edited a few weeks/months ago) which had at least two links to other hubs this person had written.
So now I'm a bit confused.
There is no rule against linking to your own Hubs. However those links must follow the same rule as every other link, i.e. they must be relevant to the main subject of the Hub.
There is an extra rule for Hubs, though: you can only link to Hubs on the same site. So if your Hub is on PetHelpful, you can link to other Hubs on PetHelpful, but not to Hubs on HealDove or HubPages.com.
I link all of the time. But, as Marisa points out, the links must be very relevant or they will eventually be snipped. So if I have a hub called "Dystocia During Lambing" I could link it to "Why Newborn Lambs Need Colostrum" but not to "How to Feed Your Ewes During Winter".

I know it says under each...

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 which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

I asked...

While writing a hub in my earlier years year a lot of link suggestions were popping up which is not seen nowadays. If I wish to link to my own hubs how can I do it and how many links can be used in a hub (self linking) ?

I am curious what you think about people that post links to their other sites (hubpages or others)?I have been getting lots of comments but that have links to my hubs, and it seems they are trying to promote their stuff on my pages. I am curious what you think about this and others as well....
