    Is it okay to contact members who made similar hubs to those I've written to ask if they'd be interested in a link exchange?

      As Darkside said, related Hubs show up anyway.  And a lot of people say exchanging links is a waste of time anyway, because Google disregards two-way links.

    If you have hubs that are related there's a good chance it will show up automatically under the Related Hubs in the right hand column.

    Otherwise, it will depend on the individual.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I know I'd find it annoying to be contacted regularly with requests for link exchanges on my hubs. I imagine it would be fine with some.

    So it wouldn't be against any part of Hubpages TOS? I just want to make sure that I won't get in trouble for it.

      How many people are you planning on contacting?

      If a few of them found it annoying and reported it, it could draw unwanted attention.

    "because Google disregards two-way links."

    Google disregards reciprocal links in passing Page rank or "google juice" but such links could help you get indexed.

    To do a proper link exchange you just dont do it reciprocally.


    MW links to DS's Hub on Antimatter from her hub on science

    DS returns favor by linking from his hub on Hubpages to MW's on Helium

    It would be pointless if you just linked hub to hub as far as I know that is just seen as an inlink/in site link, reciprocity doesnt matter anyway in that regards.

    But the method works fine if the users have external blogs and sites taht they share in such a sharing system
