    How do you do inbound links on profile page without URL showing up?. I mean links from other sites.

    You would want to use the following html code:
    It will not allow me to post it via the actual html code here, and I can not send it to you via email through your contact link on your profile. So To correct the issue I will simply find a URL to post that will answer your question.
    Sorry Was going to give you the short sweet version but it isn't being nice and allowing me to post it without turning it into a link itself, or not displaying properly at all.

    http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_links.asp
    The first half will answer your question, and the remaining parts of that page will go more indepth on how the coding works for other things like Anchor text and such.
    Hope this helps a bit

    Hi, brakel2.  The links on the profile page would be considered "outbound" links if, for example, what they lead to is something like a website or blog that you (or anyone else) has outside of HubPages.

    Another kind of link would be the kind that you may put on your own website or blog and that would lead to your profile page or one of your Hubs.  That would be an "inbound" link.  To get one of those you (or the person's whose outside it is) would create that kind of link on the other site.

    To do something like write a paragraph on  your profile page and have "in-text" links, all you need to do is go to "edit profile" and select the word or words you want linked to something else (like one on your Hubs).  "Select"/"highlight" the word(s) with your mouse and then right click to select "copy". 

    Across the top of the edit box you'll see a blue icon that shows both a link and what looks like the same thing only broken.  Use the one that doesn't look broken.  Click on that, and you'll see a line.  You'll need to paste in the URL of the page you want to link to. 

    On HubPages, I don't think the line already has "http://" so you just paste.  On other sites there is often already an "http;//", so you either need not to copy that "http://" (or else you can just clear that from the line before you paste it in).  You just don't want to "http;//'s".

    and that's all you do.  I hope this is helpful, but if there's anything I left out (or other questions) feel free to e.mail me.
