    Hi,

    I am about to submit my second article pertaining to Mah Jongg. Although it is an entirely different topic than the first one, I would like to put a link at the bottom of the article in case a reader wants to explore the other topic too. Are there any rules around this, and what is the best way to do it in keeping with the requirements set by the editors? Thank you for your assistance. Also, if anyone has a sample article where they have been successful doing this, I'd love to have a look.

    Only link between related hubs. A list of your other work is not something that is allowed. It would probably be featured but would take away all chances of the hub being moved to a niche site.

    It is fine to link but you should wait until the articles are moved to a network site (Levelskip?). You can add the link later, and avoid the link being removed or having the editors refuse the move to a niche site.

        As Lobobrandon said, though, don't add the link unless the article is directly related.  Also, if you put it at the end of the article, it's far more likely to be "snipped".

        The best way to include a link is to refer to the article in the text.  For instance, you might say something like, "If you have not bought your own set yet, you will find some helpful tips in this article" and make "this article" a hyperlink to your article on that subject.

          Oh, it looks like you actually checked out the other one I was going to link to. Thank you. That is exactly the type of information I was looking for. I have looked at some articles that just linked a bunch of articles at the end, but I know the rules have changed quite a bit. Thanks so much.

            Yes, I used to provide a list of my related Hubs at the end of my Hub.  There was even a capsule we could use, to do it automatically!   Now, HubPages frowns on that practice.

            You shouldn't be looking to emulate anything that you see on a hub that is on hubpages.com There are going to be some good ones here and there, but in general, just don't bother looking through them for ideas. Always take a look at niche sites.

            What Dr. Mark said was also right. You are not allowed to link back to a hubpages.com article from a niche site. If you want to link to something wait for it to be moved first.

      We do see when an author makes changes to an article, so either way, it can be snipped. As everyone has said here, it's best to link to related articles on other niche sites.
