Could someone help me understand what an internal link is. I understand that Hub pages doesn't allow more than 2 internal links. I have linked several of my hubs together because they are about the same topic. So one hub has 5 links on it. Are these internal links? I also have links coming in from Twitter, Facebook, Blogger and Word Press to each of my hubs. Are these internal links too? I'm confused would someone please take the time out to explain what an internal link is. Many thanks in advance.
No, you may not have more than two external links. You can have as many internal links as you want AFAIK.
An external link leads away from HubPages, whereas an internal link links to a page on HubPages from within your hub.
A link coming from a place like Twitter like you mentioned, and I assume it's your Twitter account, is a backlink, I think.
I was also concerned about this issue. Would anyone can explain?
Does this mean you could make a hub with 2 external links, with internal links to say 5 other pages within your hub each with 2 external links ?
The following is from my experience and gleamed from the forums and FAQ.
2 external (outgoing) links per domain per hub is okay.
If you have 10 hubs with two external links each going to the same domain, this is okay, but penalized.
If you have 1 hub with 10 external links pointing to the same domain, then your hub will be flagged as overly promotional.
If you have 1 hub with 10 external links but they are all different domains being linked to, then this is fine.
I hope this helps.
Guys, you can have many internal and external links. The limitation is that a single hub may only link to a certain site or blog two times in that hub. So I can have 2 links to CNN, 2 links to the NY Times, 2 links to Perez Hilton, etc.
It is against the rules to create a hub with a goal of raising referrals in an affiliate program?
Nope, Make your content original and slap in your affiliate link some where in there. But keep it so your page it not just pitching the product that will get you flagged.
o.k. good info. is it beneficial to inter-link my same subject hubs together? so that each hub has links to the same corresponding hubs?
even though they are all linking to the same hubs? (ahhh, that doesn't sound clear to me)

Asking here because I got a note from an editor to fix a few things in an article, but when I clicked reply, I got a Mailer Daemon reply. So here is my question: Why are Hubpages internal links no longer allowed? I was asked to remove all of them, when it the past they were allowed. I am now...

This is getting silly. The last few Hubs I updated had all links to other Hubs snipped, even though these links were (a) on the same topic (b) helpful to the reader and (c) pointing to the same niche site. I really try to understand why Amazon links are removed, and I get why links to other sites...

Is there a way to link to another section of the same hub, as a referral, such as "...in a list of links, below," .. and have that phrase as a link to the links capsule further down the page?(You see this used on many websites, where there is a list of topics, and you will get to them all...
