    If you have a series of hubs, you can put them in the same group (in "My Account", it's the second to last tab in black).  This way the "previous" and "next" hub will show at the end of each hub.  Hope this helps!

      Exactly what I was going to say. You can also use the "links" capsule to put a link to the first hub in the series and to the next hub in the series at the bottom. I'm not sure which method readers like better.

    The best way to do this is to create a table of contents sort of in the first hub of the series and then add links pointing to each of the hubs in your series. Each of the series hub can then have three links pointing to the next hub, previous hub and the table of contents. This method will give you great flexibility when adding more hubs while providing easy navigation to your hubs visitors.

    To see a working practical example, may be you should check on my profile for a hub series titled: Programming in Java-A step by step tutorial for beginners. This series is crafted using the approach described above. Thanks.

      There is NO limit to the number of links you can have to other Hubs. So your table of contents can include all the other Hubs in the series if you wish. The only limit on links is to external sites or blogs.

      I agree with you Marisa Wright,there is no limitation for links other than external links, even my table of contents in the below hub contains more than 10 links. Here, i was just giving an example. Thanks.

      I tried to go to your link, but said pages could not be found!  Hmmm....

    As others have suggested, a table of contents (right floated and highlighted in blue) is a good way to help your readers navigate.

    However, if you're writing a long series, it may be better to consider putting it on a blog.   HubPages isn't the ideal place to create a long series, because it's not easy to keep readers within your sub-domain and allow them to follow the sequence in the correct order.
