Why is the "link suggestion" tool not responding?
Is anyone else having problems with the "link suggestion" tool? It will not suggest any links for me.
I used it this morning. I found it a little different. You go and highlight the word you want to make a link. It will then give you a list of links/Hubs that you can choose from to use. After you pick one the word you highlighted will become blue and a link.
Thanks for the suggestion BKAONE. I just upload a new hub & was able to use the technique to create links. It seems that it is an enhancement, and it works better than the old tool.
The old tool used to allow that too. Sometimes I would see it highlight one word, when I thought two would work better. So I would highlight the two myself and it would suggest links for the two, if it had them. Note, when I highlight words and no links show up, it tells me I need to write one.

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 hubs you could choose to link too. I just don't see the significance...

When I'm suggesting links within my hub, and I highlight a word to make a choice for a link, then finish and move on to the next word, I notice that another word I had just highlighted disappears. For every word that I finish highlighting as a link, a nearby linking word in my hub becomes unlnked...

If the link suggestion tool has highlighted a word by itself and I want to select a few words, including that word, to see link suggestions for, then I cannot do that. The link suggestion tool says it already contains a link so it cannot show me link suggestions. But there is no link, only a part...

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...

I was attempting to update the links on a hub and was checking the previous links to be sure I didn't duplicate them in the same article. I was using the Suggest-a-Link tool at the time. The very first link I checked I had no memory of putting there. It seemed strange because I seldom...
