When I click to read an article on HubPages, I've noticed that the "Related Hubs" widget appears for a split second at the top of the right sidebar and then immediately disappears, only to be replaced by an advertisement. I scroll down and see the "Recommended" and "Popular" sidebar widgets below that ad, but the "Related" widget is totally gone.
When related hubs aren't being displayed, that's going to reduce time on site and referral traffic, so I hope this is just a glitch that the HP team is fixing.
This glitch occurs when I'm signed in and when I'm signed out of my account.
I don't have a regular computer right now, but it's happening on both my iPhone running Safari and on my Android tablet running Chrome. All apps are current.

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

I fail to see the need for the "related hub" section on each of my hub pages. Sometimes these hubs do not really relate to mine. Readers come to our pages to read the hubs we wrote or because they like to follow us. Pulling our readers away to other hubs is not quite fair.There are...
