People like me spend a lot of time and effort in backlinking. So, when a visitor clicks on the link I have posted somewhere long ago and reaches here only to view a 'no existence' page, they will be naturally disappointed. And if that visitor goes away to view something else, I will be disappointed that, I had to unpublish that particular hub to comply with the everchanging policies and guidelines. My suggestion is that if someone reaches a page by clicking a direct link from somewhere on the web only to find that its no longer there, can the display page display the particular hub's author's other hubs?, so that the hubber do not lose that traffic? Your views and viewpoints are welcome.
When a hub is moderated, we do provide links to related hubs on the page (to visitors not signed in). While this may not be ideal for the author of the original page, we believe it provides the best user experience. We have to balance the authors' goals with the needs of the visitors.
Hope this makes sense.

A great HP feature is that we're notified on our account page of broken links in hubs (the black triangle with a white exclamation point in the center). It seems there's no such notification about broken links in the...

Hello hubbers. I have three related hubs, parts 1 to 3. Part 3 is the one getting most of the traffic. Part 2 hardly get's any at all even though they are linked. The word count when combined would be 2873 but given...

I have returned to my Hubpages account to find out that I have some broken links to tend to, but, when I view the pages in question in "edit mode", I am not seeing which ones are broken, i.e. highlighted. I...
