    I am new to hubpages, and I am creating a hub that has related content to a published hub. Can I reference the existing published) hubs url in the hub that I am creating? If not, then do I simply use the link suggestion tool, and be sure to use keywords that will link the hubs?

      Yes you can link your hub to other hubs. For this you can also take help of link suggestion tool

        Yes, that was what Cagsil said above. Only he explained it better.

          Perhaps we should set up some forum award system?

          We could have one for "Most off topic", "Did not read any replies", "Repetition of replies", "Repetition but more confusing" and "Complete non-sequitur" and "Best Wrong Answer".

            That's an excellent idea. "The race to the bottom" awards. All I'm requesting additionally is that Kill Switch.

              I nominate ankigarg87 for a "Repeated previous advice but left important stuff out" award, unless you think there is a better category?

                You've got my vote of support, of course. I'm too dazzled to think straight.

                  Well I don't think it would be an awards ceremony exactly. I think there's one person who'd sweep through and claim them all, leaving no awards for anyone else.

                  More a "this is your life" show?

    Welcome to HubPages! smile

    You can link to any hub on HubPages that is related to your content.

    You can do it a couple of ways-

    (a) Use the link suggestion tool
    (b) Use an keyword related and anchor a link to that word by using the "chain" link tool built-in to the text capsules
    (c) Use a "Link" capsule.

    If it is someone else's hub and you are using the link "chain", be sure to remember to get your tracking code in there so you can get possible credit.

    I forget that CONSTANTLY.

    The easy way to get it is to go to the page, click "Share" down the bottom and then "Link to this Page".   The link with your tracker will be highlighted and ready to copy in back at your hub.  It will look something like

    http://hubpages.com/your_tracker_will_b … s-hub-here

      Thanks everyone, I failed to say that both hubs are mine...silly me!! I do plan to use the links suggestion tool. I recently discovered that.
      @Pcunix, there is a lot of redundancy, but redundancy may help to make me as good as you are smile.
      @ Cagsil, this is only my 3rd hub, and I learn more each time. Thanks for the information in a,b,c order....I need that!
      @ankigarg87, thanks....I'm on it!

        That was my impression. In this case, you can also use the Groups feature, available from the control panel. This will create arrows to next hub / previous hub underneath the comments field; convenient if you add more related hubs later.

        If it is yours, use groups as WE said, or, if it is within your hub, use the chain and find your hub in lower box.
