What are the red underlined words about in our hubs?
Red underlines on random words in our hubs are links to hubpages main page. What is the purpose of it and how are the words chosen? It silly and annoying to have a word underlined, like "confession" and the link takes you no where but to HP home page.
Lori, On my hubs these are not random words underlined in red, they are links and take me to whatever site or other links I intend..not to the HUbPages home page. Are you sure you didn't intend these words to lead to links? If so you need to check them.
Excuse me, I know I could look this up, but I am lazy -- how do you make them links
Eric, Goto Text box. Highlight word or phrase to link to. Click the chain link at the text box header. Paste or type the URL in the space provided. Save. To remove a link highlight the word or phrase used. Click the broken link in the header.
Can we link to our other material or is that too self promotional? I gather the main purpose is to support something wroten with a cite/link to something authoritative. (I just love that word wroten - my son invented it)
You can link to other hubs written by you or others, or something elsewhere related or helpful to readers of your hub. You can't have more than two links to the same site or URL. Love the word Wroten.
John, I don't remember which hub it was but I found one with the word confession that linked to a Hubpages page with all sorts of hubs with different topics. I did not put a link for that word, nor others in that article.
Lori thanks for the question and thanks for the comments. Really cool I have learned much.

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right 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?

Is there a way to get rid of unwanted traffic sites that attach a link to our hubs without our knowledge? I try to individually monitor my hubs for suspicious traffic and have written two letters to the offender who has sent me 8 visits on one hub this week. Now HubPages has marked my hub with a...

For a few weeks, when in edit mode or when writing a new hub, keywords that Kontera selects and underline -- pop up as broken links. This neccessitates having to unlink their link and works (as they immediately relink it)until the next time you have to go into edit mode on that hub.

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

Another wrong idea.
