I use to write a lot but have been so busy but recently started to write articles again. Am I am to leave a link from one article to another because they both deal with relationships?
It isn't against any rules. They tend to frown on it now, and especially if you link from an article on a niche site to one which is on hubpages.com. It shouldn't be a problem if you link to one that is in a niche site, or if both articles are on hubpages.com.
I'm just a guy though. I don't run anything around here.
I don't think it is necessarily a problem...as long as both are in the same niche site and discuss the same basic thing.
A hub, though, on dating relationships and one on extended family relationships would probably not qualify. One on the problems of your spouse interacting with your parents and another on you interacting with in-laws probably would.
I did on one of my articles and the capsule got snipped. I was probably in the wrong, though, because the Hub I was linking to wasn't specifically related. I think as long as the two Hubs are similar it shouldn't be an issue.
I included 2 text links to HP articles. One was allowed, the other snipped. Obviously, the links have to be relevant but also add value. Linking to your own articles, solely to get more views, is likely to get them removed.
That has to be a major key as to whether it's acceptable. Before niche sites I interlinked my hubs heavily, usually with in-text links. On a hub about changing brakes on a Ford Taurus, I might say "Some cars are different here - the Chevy Camaro is one of them" and use the "Chevy Camaro" as a link to a hub reviewing the new Camaro.
While it used to be fine, a review of the Camaro is not relevant to changing brakes on a Taurus and such links will be snipped.

What's the point in keeping us from linking to our own work in our articles? That's how we increase traffic to our articles!

Just curious, but does anyone have experience with this? How'd you do it? Did you tell Google the article moved somehow or do anything else fancy? Or did you just copy, paste, delete from HubPages, and wait for Google to catch up?Im guessing there might be some duplicate content penalties from...

Hi,Do more experienced Hubbers have any useful tips for getting your article moved to a niche site? I kept seeing advice that goes something like "make sure you write a high-quality article" but it just seems so vague to me. I have 9 articles now and the only one that was moved to a niche...

I have written a series of articles/essays under the title "The Cackleberry Farmer." Only the latest of around ten issues has been selected for "LetterPile" niche site. HP won't allow links to the other hubs in the series, and anyone reading the one on LetterPile won't really be...

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

I read on here that articles that aren't moved to the niche sites don't get as much live as those on the niche sites.Would it be wise to continue writing here knowing there's the possibility of that happening, although I try to make my articles optimized in the hopes it will pull in some traffic...
