    When I click on the suggest links for new hubs, I get one or two words highlighted in the first paragraphs and that's it.  I also can't highlight my own words or phrases to turn them into a link.  I have a lot of hubs, now  that can't be linked to any other hubs on HP.  Anything I can do?

    Thanks, Terri

      Manually insert the links while you are in edit mode and have the text box open. It also lets you insert your own referral tracker (which you can't with the suggest a link too) which means you can actually earn some money from sending people to other hubs.

        hmmmm....don't know if I'm savvy enough.  Are you saying I should manually type a link beside a chosen word in the text???  Won't that clutter the content a bit?  And I'm not sure what you mean by a referral tracker.  Haven't tackled that one yet.

          The text capsule editor has an Insert Link button on the toolbar, which will appear if you highlight (click-and-drag over) the text you would like to make into a link. Then you can enter any URL you like, including the URL of a Hub you'd like to link to.

          That said, the Link Suggestion tool should work, and after trying it out a bit on my own Hubs just now it seems to be okay. Can someone link me to a Hub of yours that you're finding the link tool isn't working on?

    I'm mainly having this problem when I start an article, go out and come back in to finish it.  If I do the suggest links on the first part and go out, it will not suggest any links for the second part.  This is happening to all my hubs.  I've been going in tweaking them and can't do suggest links on what I add to them either.  Help, my Hub Karma is dropping...God forbid!

    I have this problem with my last two Hubs. I will try again until the Suggestion Link will work! In the meantime I have discovered how insert links manually! Thanks to the Forum to exist!
