What would you suggest: links to my other hubs or to others?
By using the "links suggestions" what would be more beneficial; linking to others or to my own hubs?
Choose the hubs that you link to yourself, don't rely on the link suggestion tool to add some links. If you care about the readers of your hub then you should only link to high quality hubs. That means either your own hubs - at least you know the level of quality of those - or hubs of others that you've actually read.
Other than that, it does not really matter. Some suggest not to link too much to the hubs of others because you'd be giving away hard earned traffic. In some cases someone else has written it perfectly and it makes sense to link to them.
Linking to your own hubs is certainly beneficial because it increases views on your own hubs.
Depends on what my story is about. If I feel it goes along with another writer's article I link that if it goes with something I previously wrote I add that one.
I say do both... it is a great way to get more traffic to your previously published hubs if you link back to your own. Yet, if you link back to other people's hubs, you are also being a good member of the community and maybe they would return the favor giving you traffic as well.
Usually if I link my hub to another, I link to something that is related, not the same as what I wrote about.
Thanks for all you answers. They are helpful and give solid advice.
If that's what you're asking, as far as I understand you can't use the link suggestion tool to link to your own hubs. But you can always link to your own hubs by editing your hub. You don't need the link suggestion for that. You can read my hub at http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Basic-Knowledge-About-Flu and then you will know how to link to others or ourselves.

I just tried using the Suggest Links tool and was dismayed to find that it not only cannot find a city like La Laguna or the town of La Orotava in Tenerife, although I have hubs about these places, it cannot even find...

You use to be able to highlight a word or two and get a drop down of related Hubs. That don't happen anymore for me. I might get one 'community' style link, but nothing like it use to be with 8 or 10 related...

When I click on the suggest links for new hubs, I get one or two words highlighted in the first paragraphs and that's it. I also can't highlight my own words or phrases to turn them into a link. I have a lot...

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?
