    Is it OK to write a Hub with nothing but links to your own work?

    Just wondering.  I read a Hub with nothing but about 25 links to the Hubber's own work.

    Only if they are related to the content of the hub...that hub should be flagged. 25 links is a bit much even if it is related.

      I agree with Uninvited, if they are related to the hub, then do post them.  Although it is better to find a way to link them within the hub then to post a high number after your topic.  Great questions, Mary.

    Internal linking is a very good SEO strategy, however, I wouldn't want my articles to have so many links to other pages that it starts looking like a site map, if that makes any sense.

    I think it's a good idea for a hub to provide a couple of links to different articles on a similar topic, whether they've been written by the same author or not, so that the reader has easy access to more information. I think that all hubs should stand alone though, and a hub offering nothing but links would not inspire me to click on them - I'll click on links if the writer has interested me in the topic and I want to read further, if not then I'll find my own articles to read.

      I agree with you, someone will make me click on the link only if I like'd what I've read...

    Nope.... I'd look out to find it and flag... there is a word to describe hubs like those: SPAM

    I have seen blog posts that are lists of links to an author's Hubpages hubs, kind of like a hubber's table of contents, but posted off-site. That would be an alternative.

      posted off site would be OK.

    such links not bring single visit..

    writing info rich hubs interests the reader and reader automatically looks for further links.. 2 or 3 links are enuff!
