I haven't been around much due to illness, hub writing and working on my blogs. My hub karma is suffering but there you go.
I am writing a hub and I want to refer to other hubbers, my question is; can I put a link to their profiles in my hub, I know I can link to their hubs which I will do but I want to point people at their profile pages.
Is this OK or is it in breach of TOS, I have looked but can't find anything saying I can or I can't.
Thanks in advance:)
I don't see why not as long as its relevant to the topic. I've seen a number of successful hubs do this.
I am sure I have to but I have this niggling doubt that it's not allowed, don't know why, probably me being over cautious.
I am not sure if you can link profiles of others ; hubs are allowed this is what the learning center says on the hub tool
The link suggestion tool is a tool for your Hubs that makes it easy to add links to your other Hubs, other authors' Hubs, and topic pages. To use the link suggestion tool, sign in to HubPages and navigate to one of your Hubs. You will see a button near the top of the page that says "suggest links." Click on the button to reveal link suggestions for your Hub, as well as more detailed instructions for using the tool. The link suggestion tool can be used to improve your HubKarma.
yes, is the answer. I've read numerous hubs with profile links to other hubbers. you can find quite a few of them in the Hubpages Tutorials and Community hubs Topic.
