Is it allowed to link to your own hubs?

    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".

    Ok, thanks, I understand.
