When linking someone's page to yours, is it proper etiquette to ask them first?
There are a few Hubber's pages that I have found I would like to add to mine in a link and was curious if I should ask first.
I think it really depends on the context, but I can't think of many scenarios where a Hubber wouldn't want you to link to their page. It's pretty much only advantageous for them.
Maybe add the link, and then tell them about it and make sure they are okay with the context it's mentioned in?
Hell no link away! Hubbers want the extra link juice it helps them rank higher in Google.
I must agree with jessicababel, however I contacted 7 Hubbers whose articles were suggested by HubPages to link to and only 3 responded. They were happy to agree. I did link the others as well without their permission and intend to do just what jessicababel said to do. I published the Hub in question today and am in the process of contacting those hubbers whose articles I linked.
Thank you for your quick replies!! I was just afraid of making anyone mad. I will be sure to link those that are associated with mine.
You would be doing them a favor, I always do it. It increases hub karma for both and in the process I think even your author scores.
Just link on making sure that the content is good. I guess they will have to thank you for it.

I've run across several hubs by others that have words running together consistently throughout the hubs. It almost seems too frequent to be standard typos. It almost seems like an artifact of copying/pasting into capsules and perhaps the hubber isn't aware that it's happening. I've...
