I used to share my financial Hubs on the Yahoo Finance message boards, but the new CEO at Yahoo seems to have changed their policy, and they now rarely allow links in message board posts. Kind of a bummer, because posting Hubs on those message boards was a good way to target a specific audience, such as posting a link to my Hub about Apple Inc. on the AAPL Yahoo Finance message board. There was always a nice spike in views using that strategy.
I am interested in reading what others have to say...
If you write for Yahoo Contributor Network, you can link to related articles. They do prefer that you link to "reputable sites" blah blah...but you know, they don't have time to check out every single link, so I've managed to link to my own sites on there.
You can also try commenting on Yahoo News articles and leaving a link to a relevant hub. They won't allow an actual do-follow link, but you can just copy/paste the link and delete the http:// part.
If the comment is helpful and the hub title is right on topic, it should go through. You won't get any link juice to your hubs, but you can get some traffic and potential followers.
Out of curiosity, I browsed Yahoo's current articles and found a story that is related to an article on my blog. So I "linked" to it. I'll come back and comment later on and let you know if I get any hits to my site from it.
One single "link" isn't much, though, so I'm not expecting much.
Good luck with your own promotional efforts, ChitrangadaSharan. Aloha
I suggest that you go into Yahoo, enter your screen (writer's name) name in quotes followed by "HubPages" also in quotes. You will see the your exposure via Yahoo right there on the screen. Yahoo also has a writer's site that you can investigate on their home page. ~WB

If anyone has written anything on Yahoo Contributor, I would recommend checking out the details. Since non of my articles are "paid to hire" After July 31st I will be able to bring them to Hubpages. Just thought i'd let anyone know who may have work there.

Do you post on message boards to increase traffic to your hubs?

Can we share our hubs with yahoo contributors as we share them with Stumbleupon or facebook or Digg?

I can't seem to find an answer for this in the learning center. I have a large set of articles I've been writing for a while + some time on my hands to dedicate to Hubpages for the next couple of months. Would publishing 10 hubs a day benefit or disadvantage me, both in terms of hub score /...

Why do you think the hub with the highest score was scored higher than your others? Interested to know.

OK I know a lot about links, but somehow I can't make a damn link to turn into a live hyperlink in Yahoo answers! I've done it both ways; just typing in the plain URL, and also using the full a href= code.None of them work. Do you have to post enough before they let your links be live or something?
