Is it Ok to make a "hubography"? Or would this be considered over-promotional?
I used to have a lensography... all the links "fell off" during the transfer to HubPages. I'm now turning it into a hubography, containing selected links to my best hubs in different the groups I've made. I'm not planning to add dozens of links, but maybe 10 or 12. Is that an acceptable thing to do?
If you have more than two links to the same domain, you'll get a notice telling you the hub is overly-promotional so that would happen for a "hubography". The only way around that would be to write the hub specifying the various categories and listing the hub titles and a description of those hubs. If someone is interested in reading them, they can type the title in the HP search box.
Hi Sheila, would you mind expanding that a bit please? Are all links from hubs to hubs regarded as links to the HB domain rather than individual pages, thereby counting towards the two allowed links?
Whether the links are all to your hubs or to hubs of different hubbers, they fall under the HP domain and will be viewed as overly-promotional. The same would apply to more than two pages at another website - yours or someone else's.
I deleted mine before the transfer thinking that they wouldn't fit at HubPages. They were useful for for me and readers in that they joined related articles together so I'd be interested to know the answer to this too.

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in the questions and forums and didn't see anything. I am not a former Squidoo person...

I noticed that when I checked my backlinks all of the ones from hubpages were 'nofollow' links. Should this be the case? (I've written several articles and I'd hate not to be getting the most out of them.) Or do I need to change something in the HTML coding linking the anchor text to my website? If...

I've just noticed that my hub, “Domestic strife in the White House. Why Barack Obama is looking tired”, has been unpublished by a moderator and classed as “overly promotional”. I will edit it in order to comply with the requirements, but I am puzzled as to why it has been unapproved. It is...

While I was creating a hub, I read that all source links for images will count towards determining if a hub is overly promotional. Are they checked and confirmed by staff, or just automatically detrimental to hubscores? I mean, a hub without photos is my kind of hub, but I know that the entire rest...
