Internal Linking in Hubs

    Is there a restriction on the number of internal links (links to my hubs or those of other Hubbers) that can be used in a hub or on how related the subject matter of the anchor text needs to be?

    If there aren't actual restrictions, are there any suggested guidelines?

    I have a huge number of hubs that could be construed as related and I want to know how many can be safely linked together.

    I've seen opinions on this subject in the forum but what I'm looking for is guidance from someone on the HubPages team. Pardon me if these questions have been answered before, but I couldn't find the information.

    There are no specific restrictions on internal linking to other hubs, but excessive internal linking just like excessive external linking (which there are hard rules about) may affect your HubScore.  Further, all links in hubs must be to relevant, related content.  I think the right guideline for linking is to only put in links that will benefit a typical reader of your hub.
