I cannot find the answer to this in the help page.
When in edit mode of my text hub, I can highlight text and use the link tool[chain] to link to an outside source by entering its URL. I can also chose Quick Link To Your Hub. What is this about?
Thanks in advance.
Quick Link is an alphabetically ordered list of your own hubs. It is a convenient way compared to inserting the link manually.
You would use a regular link to link to anything else, including other people's hubs and external websites. You can also use a link capsule for this purpose.
So I either link to some outside source via their URL, or to one of my other hubs via the Quick Link, but not both. Is that it right?
You are welcome. But that is not exactly correct.
Of course, one hyperlink can only have one destination. But you can create several hyperlinks: Some links can be to your hubs, others can be to other people's hubs, yet others can be to external sites. You build one link at a time by using either of the methods we've discussed.
You can link to as many hubs as you like.
As far as links to external sites, you are allowed no more than 2 links going to the same domain in each hub. Check out the rules about "overly promotional" for details:

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

When one gets the message "overly promotional", one often does NOT see the links that are pointing to the same place. Is there some way to pop up the "offending links" similar to the way a dead link...

We all know you can't have more than 2 links to the same domain in a single Hub. However, there used to be another rule - that if you linked to the same domain over several Hubs, that was also overly...

I find it hilarious that Hubpages pushes the concept of helping new Hubbers yet my Hub which has had very good reception by the community has been flagged for being both overly promotional and substandard.I had 5 social...
