I have a few hubs now, am I better off choosing aprimary hub and linking all other hubs to it, or creating reciprocal links between all hubs.
When linking to my other hubs whould the links be fully qualified (absolute) or realtive.
One of our most successful Hubbers, Nelle Hoxie, interlinks her Hubs extensively. Remember Google likes related links, so interlink the Hubs that are on the same broad topic, not just any old Hub.
You can do it by adding a links capsule anywhere in your Hub and adding links, or by adding a rss capsule with an rss feed for your Hubs. Or, if you're up for a bit of extra work, the most effective links are contextual - i.e. you highlight a word or phrase in the text and use that to link.
Another idea, as MyWebs said, is to create a Capstone-style Hub which is an overview of a topic, with links to all your related Hubs.

I'm so glad you said the above, Marisa, it's exactly what I've been wondering. How do you do this? I know it's a basic skill, but I don't have it. So we highlight the word we want to be the LINK and then what do we do? Thanks.
Oh, and P.S. I haven't done it yet, but is this the kind of thing that messes us up for EzineArticles?
@Marisa Wright grouping does serve purpose on interlinking?
I wrote a hub on the various ways to interlink your hubs (Groups, RSS, and Link Capsules) - I hope it helps.
Hi Pamela, you go to the text capsule, enter edit mode, highlight the word, a new box opens where you enter a external link to some other site or link to one of your listed Hubs. Hope that helps.

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...

I know it's been asked before. I've even asked it before. But is there a better and easier way to bring in links to a link capsule from another hub. It'd make linking series so much easier. I spent about 2 hours...

Is it still OK to link to our own hubs? I have several hubs on baby names, and when I wrote them several years ago, I linked them all to each other within the body of the hubs. I haven't been good about updating my hubs...
