I was just setting up a hub that I was planning on using as something of an index for the hubs I have in one of my groups. This is the first time I've done something like this, and it wasn't until I was half way through it that I wondered if this is what is considered self promotion on hubpages.
I am very annoyed when I'm trying to promote my hubs, and I have to just link to my profile page, so I thought if I created a hub with some information on a group of subjects (in this case, cosmetic procedures), so I can refer to this hub if people wanted to view everything I have in my group, then it would be easier to promote my hubs. It seems like your profile page is very limited in what hubs you can show to people. I tried to use the category, but I don't know how to access it unless it is featured on one's profile page.
Does anyone have a better suggestion for how to link to a page that shows all the hubs that belong in a category or a group, or thoughts about how much this hub I was making is self-promoting?
This is what is known as a capstone hub, and yes it's fine. It's a goog way to link hubs. It won't be over-promotional (that's to do with links to external sites that you have an interest in promoting). I think darkside has a hub about capstones if you want to check it out.
It's fine to set up a hub as an index to other related hubs. I have one for all my recipe hubs, myself.
Gosh, yes. If that were a problem, a lot of index pages on a lot of sites wouldn't exist.
This sounds much like a lensography on Squidoo and as long as most of the links are to other hubs I dont think it to be a problem. In fact it is a good idea and even a standard practice on sites like this
i'd been wondering about this too - i called it a metahub when i sent a msg to help, since i didnt know what others were calling it
the capstone and flagship programs are nice, but a bit stricter than what i was considering -- i'd like to format my hubpages by varios topics, such as travel in turkey, travel in india, my recipes, history & travel books
i can't do this with a group, since these are overlapping, so i was going to produce a hub that connected each meta-grouping.
has anyone done this outside the 2 official programs?
the answer btw, from help, was that the main consideration be that the metahub itself was large enough. i was thinking about 10 hubs at the start...

Hi,I know normally there cannot be more than 2 links to any one site on one hub.So, my question is, does that also count for links back to hubpages?For example, if I have two links back to myself and say 2 links to other hubbers' hubs, then is that considered 4 links (over the 2 limit) back to the...

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

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 yesterday linking an old series that I have together. It included about 20 or so hubs...

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 which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

This topic has been raised a couple of times in other threads, I thought it was worth posting as a separate topic to get more attention. We all know how important backlinks are. Current thinking is that simply exchanging links (site A links to site B and site B links to site A) is a...
