I have read that trading links with people who have similar, helpful sites is a good idea. And conversely, that Google frowns on such trading. Which is it!
Both are true.
Google isn't completely dumb - if it sees two websites which link to each other, it knows there was collusion and will downgrade the value of the links.
However, if you can arrange to trade links with someone who has several websites, you can be clever - say, I put a link on my website A to your website B, and you add a link on your website B to my website C.
In Googles eyes they want to see natural links, however if your competition is beating you hands down, your not going to sit and wait for natural links that will never come are you.
A one way link will always rater more highly in google's eyes than exchange links.
I still cannot find the links when I add them to my hub. I just submitted one hub, Benefits of Corporate Teambuilding, made
3 links then where do I see them?
They are there, all right. Hyperlinks are distinct as they are blue. This is an actual screenshot of you hub:
