Just curious.... does it violate any rules if I put a "for more information" link to another of my websites in any of my hubs?
Not at all, provided your Hub isn't copied from somewhere else (not suggesting you would plagiarise, but you might reproduce one of your articles from elsewhere).
If you write most of your Hubs all linking to the same website, you can get flagged for being overly promotional - but if you mix it up, you'll be fine. All my belly dance Hubs link to my belly dance site, all my flamenco Hubs link to my flamenco site, etc. That's OK because I also have several Hubs that don't.
Tip - the most effective backlink (in Google's eyes) is one that's in context. So rather than saying "for more information click here" and hyperlinking "click here", link using your keywords. For instance, rather than saying "to see more clips, visit my website, Belly Dance Oz", I would say "..... visit The Australian Belly Dance Video Directory".
So how do I go about backlinking in context?
As long as you are not using those statements to indicate clicking on any paid ad links (ie Google). That behavior is forbidden in the AdSense TOS.
I have linked hubs of mine that relate to another one of my hubs at the bottom. I have seen it done on other hubs as well. If we can do it within the text, I think it is ok to do it at the bottom.
I'm pretty sure that would be fine, as long as you don't link to it more than twice in the same hub
using in text links with varied but appropriately related keywords is absolutely imperative!
read up on "anchor text"
as for "click here", you dont stand a chance ranking against Adobe Reader!
