I see that when I pull up one of my pages, it has a "Related Hubs" box on the right. I think that it has 4 or 5 hubs that are "related" to my hub in it.
As my page is being used to promote 4 or 5 other hubs, can I assume that 4 or 5 other pages are promoting my 1 hub? If so, that would be great. If not, does anyone know how it works?
As far as I know, related Hubs show up based on the tags you chose for your Hub. So one can assume that other Hubs with tags like the one on yours may point to your Hub in the related Hub boxes of those Hubs.
Other Hubbers more experienced than I will have more to say. There's always an aspect of HP data management/manipulation that escapes us all.
It's not a reciprocal thing, but you can be fairly sure your Hub is being promoted on other Hubs. I sometimes see my Hubs in that section when I'm browsing someone else's Hub.
I think Sally is right. I did a hub on valentines day for women, then when I did another for men (both similar), the other hub appeared on the related hub space.
Hubpages are so well organised!
I don't have a clue how it works. Somebody from HP said that it is partly based on the tags. And when I really haven't liked some of the related hubs, I've played with tags and manipulated it a bit. But I don't have time to play those kinds of games on a regular basis.
Mostly I just trust HubPages to be fair. As I have seen my hubs many times in the related column of other hubbers, I just chill. This is a shared site after all.
If you look after hubpages and stay within the rules, then hubpages look after you!

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...

I've just noticed something which concerns me a bit and wondered if it is something new or not. The related hubs, listed on my highest trafficked hub in my best niche, only have one hub which fits the description out of six examples. The other five--though distantly related--would...

At the bottom of the lens it has related hubs. Is there a way to exclude some hubs from showing there, or to encourage better (more related) ones by limiting the category or using keywords or hand picking them or something?For example, my lens on a simple wooden toy is getting horror movies...
