I've noticed this a lot recently, where hubbers will post a partial, or even full, list of their hubs w/in their profile. The links to the hubs are just below on the profile page, so I was wondering what the benefit is?
Is it just easier navigation for traffic? Is there some benefit to the added link?
Massive internal link juice.
Just about everything you do on Hubpages includes your username with a corresponding link to your profile page. For example, leaving a comment on a hub passes some link 'juice' from that hub to your profile.
In turn, whatever you link to on your profile page similarly receives link juice from that profile page.
That's why the most active members have some of the profile pages and hubs with high PR
If someone lobs on your profile then they may just notice a hub of interest to them and click on it. I havent put much on there of mine. mainly just links to other writing or leadlighting etc.
Its just another oportunity to attract attention to your writing.
Thats just my opinion though.
Maybe some Hubbers feel that a specific Hub(s) of theirs serves as a good introduction to their writing?
Have to agree with Adele and Eileen - Hubpages is a portfolio for me, and I prefer to publicise certain Hubs. A couple of my comedy Hubs might not make a good impression on a corporate client, for example
Yeah, but if a prospective employer can't enjoy YOUR wit and recognize what is required to have that wit, you don't want to work for them anyway. It can be like a douchebag filter.
Good question, I was just wondering the same thing yesterday. Do they serve as a back link somehow, even though your hubs are already listed on the page? or is it just to introduce to your favorite hubs??
From what I've read, internal linking serves a purpose in driving traffic to your hubs once someone gets there, but doesn't count as an official "backlink" with Google.
I'm still learning though, so I could be wrong about that. Maybe someone a bit savvier will be able to clarify.
Thanks everyone for the answers.
Sufi- Makes sense about what you do and do not want to feature. I could see some of the hubs I've read from some hubbers not portraying their best corporate side.

I was reading through the FAQ and one thing that stuck out for me was the fact that after your Hubber Profile score reaches 75 or higher your website link on your profile is supposed to change from nofollow into dofollow. The links on my profile are all still nofollow links (I checked with inspect...

I have noticed in the past few days while Hub Hopping and scanning my feed that there are a plethora of new hubs and hubbers joining the site and publishing low quality or poorly translated/spun hubs. When I click on the profile after flagging the hubs, I notice that there is no information about...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...
