Is there a limit to the total number of outside links you can have w/i a hub?
I want to display 2 snack recipes (with links to give credit & avoid plagiarism) that originate from another site, and 2 specific exercise routines from another site, and maybe 2 additional links... I know that I can't use more than 2 links to the same source w/i a hub. I'm worried about sourcing & giving credit.. don't want links & sources taken out by editing
There is a limit but no one knows the formula. The way I try to get around it is to have no more than 3 links in the actual link module.
However, it appears you can have more inline links with little penalty.
In any text module, if you highlight a text word or phrase, you can add a link to that.
By 3 links in the actual link module do you mean 3 links in one text capsule? I apologize for my limited understanding.. I'm still quite new to Hubpages
In the link module, you can add as many links as needed. By limiting to only three, you stand a better chance of being featured. Also, HubPages does not like too many links from the same domain. I hope this helps.
Thank you again Jack, that does help so much!
Are you summarizing the information from these links or using the full text. Even if you "give credit" and provide the link you are taking away traffic from the original author and you should get actual permission from them before posting it to your own page.
I've had people copy my work to their own sites. Sometimes they link back to me sometimes they don't. It's all the same to me because I won't see that traffic.
Every time you post a link to someone else's page you are inviting them to walk away and look at better information than you are providing. They may decide to stay on that other site and not come back.
I don't see it that way. I am not always focused on traffic. My writing are concise. I tend not to repeat what exists. If I can link to something that gives detail or context to what I am writing, I will add the inline link.
I know this is ???
I was going to give the name of the recipes, ingredients & instructions (but not word for word.) Should I just name the original site instead of linking, i.e., "this recipe for 'Blast the Fat Candy Bar' is from 'So and So.com' ?
In your case, when writing a recipe, I would not use inline link. I just want the instructions on how to make a dish from start to finish. I have written recipes hubs and no links were needed.
I see your point about driving people away from my article & taking away from someone else. I don't want to do either one. Should I just write "All Recipe has a great recipe for.." or.. list the source at the bottom?
I would just put the reference at the end.
Thank you Chloe and Jack for your help!

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. ...
