Is it true we will no longer be able to link to our own sites from our profiles?
Some hubbers are choosing to upgrade their profiles already, and I believe sometime in the future we will all automatically upgrade to the new profiles. They look great, but I'm concerned that some are saying we will no longer be able to link to our own sites or own blogs from these new profiles. Does anyone know the truth about this? If it is true, how do you feel about that?
It appears you can link to selected social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Linked In & Pininterest) along with one personal website. I mostly like the new layout, but it would be nice to be able to have more options in terms of personal links.
I just changed over today, and, NO, I now have no means on my profile page to place ANY Of my own links. And, yourrofile is cut to just 500 characters. It LOOKS very nice, but we, as Hubberw just
oat a lot of individuality, I am afraid.
It doesn't limit your profile to 500 characters - you just have to click through to see more than.
No, you can't direct link the same way, but you can add a non-social networking link. You can also chose hubs to highlight, which is great.
I switched over and found some very specific slots for linking to web pages. Most are for specified social sites but one I could use for one of my own sites. You might want to go back and look again.
Thanks, relache - I see is there is space for one link to one's own site or blog, but when one has more than just one or two sites of one's own, and usually links to those in the 1st main part of a profile that people see, it's a little upsetting.
If it is true I don't like it at all! I have worked very hard to get were I can just start to do that and I do not make any money here.
I have a bit of traffic coming to my own sites and blogs every month from HubPages, through the links on my profile. That HubPages traffic to my own sites from my profile page will stop coming when we all automatically have to get the new profile.
That is a real shame, many of us work very hard here and I know it helps HP but we have to have some incentive too.
This will cause me to question how much of a future I intend to have on HubPages.

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

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...

Is there anything you don't you like about the new hubpages profile pages?I believe changing over is irreversible and ultimately inevitable for all hubbers but for all those who find change difficult :-) it would be good to hear of any negative observations regarding the new profile pages that you...

It seems when hub hopping that a lot of the spammy spun nonsense is provided by people who have no profile and no picture.Why not make a paragraph, minimum 50 words say, of profile writing compulsory? And a pic as well. I mean neither would be particularly hard for a new hubber to deal...

What happened to the link we used to be able to pick up and put on our profiles, to invite others to join Hub Pages?Is there no longer an associated "reward" if someone does so on our recommendation? Is this link in a different place? I do not see it on the signed-out front...
