Forgive my ignorance, but I thought it is not okay to promote your own hubs?
Forgive me, but I have been noticing a lot of high score hubbers who have been promoting their own hubs on one of their very own hubs. I thought being overly promotional of your own hubs is a violation on Hub Pages. I know that the suggest links is to link other hubbers' hubs that relate to your hub. So, is it now okay to promote your own hubs on your own hub? Thanks for the info.
Hi Faith, seems that once ot twice a week won't hurt anyone, but somehow will affect your score, depending on your spam/overly activity. Others might come up with more answers,Have a nice weekend!
I haven't really tried to push my luck but it certainly appears that there is a fine line between promoting your site and finding a correlation with a similar one.
Thanks lord, my "suggest links" does not work right now for some reason, anyway. But I would like to suggest links to other hubbers', not mine own. I think I read an email from the staff or something here lately suggesting to use the linking tools.
Hubs that are "purely promotional" are not allowed. Therefore, hubs promoting other hubs - whether one's own or those of others - would need to provide some valuable information, so that readers can benefit from the hub without needing to visit other hubs. Any links would need to be relevant. As long as those standards are met, there are no other restrictions.
Thanks, and I understand about the purely promotional hubs, but I guess I'm trying to figure out the "suggest links" as to linking other hubbers being fine, but not our own hubs?
You can promote your hubs by using links on your other Hubs. This way they can just click on it and they are on one of your other Hubs.
You can link to yours or other hubs that relate to the topic - is my understanding.
I am brand spanking new too hubbing and maybe my opinion doesn't mean much at this point but I have read a lot of articles on hubbing lately and they all seem to indicate that it is fine and actually encouraged as long as it is on subject. I am just getting the hang of everything though so maybe I'm wrong.
As long as the hubs you are linking of similar nature, this is a great way to get traffic. For instance, I wrote a memorial poem for my dad based on how much he enjoyed watching the classic westerns. I then wrote a lot of reviews on classic western television shows and put the links to the reviews at the bottom of the page. Here's the link: http://diana-lee.hubpages.com/hub/MAYBE-ITS-THE-COWBOYS
The "overly promotional" rule refers to links to pages OUTSIDE HUBPAGES only.
You can link to as many Hubs as you like - your own or other Hubbers'. The only limitation, in both cases, is that the Hubs must be on the same topic.
