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!

The new layout explodes the prominence of the related hubs images down the right side of the page. This image appears before all the ads, apart from the Google adsense ad above the title. Related hubs get an absolutely...
