what do you think of the idea to have a module just for internal links ?
it could simply be a "related hubs" module - or if possible, a sudebar unit that allows links to a number of your OWN hubs
addes internal linking would be good for seo - from both hp and hubbers' viewpoints.
what do you think ?
and more importantly....
is it possible / executable ?
I use the Link Capsule for that all the time.
I only link to those of a related theme.
silly me - did not notice the related hubs widget in the sidebar.
but it would still be nice to have random internal links to your own hubs.
i checked out using the profile rss feed - but that just lists the last hubs - so the older ones will not be getting any link juice
how do you get a related hubs rss feed ?
anyway, the new related hubs widget will already make a difference - in seo terms -because somewhere out there, there will be links pointing to your hubs - creating a spiderweb effect for the search engines - and they seem to appreciate that.
Since relevancy is more important than randomness to search engines, I fail to see the benefit of this potential development.
I agree. From what I understand, search engines are suspicious of websites that include links to random, unrelated sites - so why would I want to do that?
The related Hubs box already provides links to related Hubs so I see no reason to duplicate that.

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...

Is it still OK to link to our own hubs? I have several hubs on baby names, and when I wrote them several years ago, I linked them all to each other within the body of the hubs. I haven't been good about updating my hubs or keeping up with what is allowed, but I am trying to change that. When...

Look at one of your articles and check out the format for the Related Hubs. On mine it now looks like a list.

We've realized for a while that with our existing tools it can be very time consuming to manage links across a large portfolio of hubs. Many Hubbers have tried to handle the interconnecting of related hubs using Link and RSS capsules. That works to an extent, but we feel that...
