Is it alright to put some links (of other hubbers) in my hub? I'm currently writing a hub and saw some great articles that I would like the reader to read also. Do I need to ask permission from the hubber?
I don't have a clue, but it sounds like a good idea. I'm still learning my way around here myself and will be interested in hearing more about this.
Normally this shouldn't be a problem, cause you are doing a favor to another hubber this way. People could have some misconceptions, though. And not only people, I remember one big news agency trying to sue somebody for incoming links They obviously don't understand the business they are in...
I would have thought this is exactly what the Hub is all about - the more we can cross reference each other the better it appears to be.
I have picked up some really interesting information from Hubbers and will certainly direct others to read their stuff as appropriate - just as I would be flattered for anyone to direct others to my hubs.
I do it all the time, and don't ask. I'm not stealing the content, simply promoting it.
I don't think it would be a problem. If it involves quoting an excerpt that's going to be longer then a sentence or two then maybe it's a good idea to get permission.
Actually, I just linked to one of Stacie's Hubs yesterday. I wrote a summary Hub for some of my Valentine's articles and she has an amazing one on crafts with tons of pictures! I loved it and linked with a short description.
ACTUALLY, you can make money doing that. Check out the URL tracker program. If you put a link to another hub into your hub, and use the URL tracker link, you get a share of the impressions of that page.
It has some strange rules, however, and you're not going to make a lot of money. I currently have 138 impressions, and have made .10.
Here's the link to sign up, or just go to your account page and click on the URL Trackers link.
I also have seen some really good content and other hubbers articles. In fact there have been a few articles I wanted to write, but felt like I couldn't compete with what other hubbers have on that subject, so kind of threw my idea out the window! The content and info on this site is great, which is why I love it and am doing my best to do the same by keeping my info informative.
If you want to know how to link to other hubbers sites, you just paste your tracking url (find it in the my account section) like this...
I just learned that the other day from the pdf file...
Thanks guys for the info and tips. Just making sure if it's okay. :-) Lela I'll be reading your hub and the link you made after this.

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...

I find it hilarious that Hubpages pushes the concept of helping new Hubbers yet my Hub which has had very good reception by the community has been flagged for being both overly promotional and substandard.I had 5 social bookmarking links,and 2 other links to free tools absolutely related to the...

I looked at a featured hubber's hubs lastnight and noticed she had several hubs that were just a bunch of pictures. Then she also had hubs that were basically a Table of Contents linking to a bunch of other hubs on one general topic. She headed it up with a brief brief paragraph. Something seems...

Another wrong idea.

Along with the Google effect lately I've seen a lot of forum posts about spam, and every time I hub hop it is obvious that there is a lot submitted here of both spam and simply substandard hubs.I would suggest that the following rules apply to the first 5 (or 10 or 20?) hubs by any new...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?
