Why are we not allowed to put links in our, "Bio" section on the new profile?
If you are outraged by this, please write in to Hubpages. Many writers constantly strive to write quality unique content (all while never spamming) with the added benefit of receiving a slight SEO benefit with anchor text. Let's bring this feature back!!
The new bio and why the various alterations were coming was explained when the changes were first announced on the HubPages blog back in May of 2012.
If you didn't like the proposed linking scheme, how come you didn't complain or make your case for keeping them back in May? Or in June? Or in July? Why wait for the new layout to launch and then complain after the fact?
If your life revolves around Hub pages, you might do something like this, but I don't have time to read everything I receive from HP. When I become aware of something wrong, I speak up. This sounds wrong!
Dear relache, thanks for the information, I just read it. But I didn't see how I can change my profile page. Is it done automatically?
Hi there! I as well as sen.sush23, who posted a question on this, are wondering how come some people got a new profile page and we didn't. Is there a procedure we must follow?
Garifalia; if you click on the profile page of someone who has changed to the new format such as securityproducts3, you will see a link saying 'Upgrade My Profile'. Click on that and it will take you to the Edit Profile page for the new template.
I guess to keep people on hubpages and to avoid outside solicitors.
I am very sympathetic to securityproducts question. I actually like the new profile layout except in this one important regard. I like to have the opportunity to group several hubs with a similar theme together with a link on my profile to a 'home page' or 'home hub' specifically for that group of hubs. At present (with the old style profile), I can do this. For example I can link on my profile to a hub which acts as a home page for all my articles on Astronomy, and another which acts as a home page for all my Travel Articles and another for my Film Reviews etc. Visit my profile if you want to see how this works. It seems it will not be possible to do this under the new profile layout.
I can appreciate danielabra's point, but I feel it should be possible to use the bio (or another section) to link to a hub page of the kind I describe. It is the only aspect of the new layout I dislike, but it is currently stopping me from taking the plunge and adopting the new format.

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...

Why has my profile page layout changed without my say-so? I don't like it - do others agree?Why, not having changed the layout of my profile page, has it changed anyway? I do not like the new layout and do not wish to have it, which is why I haven't changed it myself. I'm...

Is there anyway I can go back to the old profile once I switched to the new one? I am very disappointed in Hubpages for taking away the feature of putting backlinks in the Bio Section of our profile. Many of us constantly strive to write unique quality content in our Hubs, so it blows me away that...

I was reading through the FAQ and one thing that stuck out for me was the fact that after your Hubber Profile score reaches 75 or higher your website link on your profile is supposed to change from nofollow into dofollow. The links on my profile are all still nofollow links (I checked with inspect...

Hi I noticed recently that when hubs are listed in the Google search results the 2nd link doesn't got to the hub but to the category page - for example: You can see the tumblr page has the normal double link to the page ranked - but the hubpage doesn't the 2nd link is to...

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?
