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.
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.
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.
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!

I fail to see the need for the "related hub" section on each of my hub pages. Sometimes these hubs do not really relate to mine. Readers come to our pages to read the hubs we wrote or because they like to follow us. Pulling our readers away to other hubs is not quite fair.There are...

I added some links to my other related hubs into this hub today which was featured before. Now I can't see most of the content when I access the hub and of course the Featured icon is gone. http://anitasaran.hubpages.com/hub/Shor … d-DialogueThanks!

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

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 just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come up below? I just don't want overkill but like the thought that I've got my...

"Use Hub Groups instead of linking to other Hubs in the body of the Hub."The above recommendation came from the HubPages Weekly newsletter. I'm not taking sides one way or another. I really am just curious about whether one way, the other or both is better.Quite a few SEO experts think...
