does the two link rule apply to your own hubs on hubpages? I started adding a links capsule with links to some of my other related hubs but then I started thinking....hmmmm...
The limit for the amount of other hubs you can link to, including yours or/and other hubs is unlimited!!
That's mostly true, but at some point an excessive number of links to anywhere may start to hurt your score. Unless your hub is a acting as a table of contents of sorts, I'd suggest limiting yourself to no more than 10-12 links to other hubs. The best way to do it (for your readers and for search engines) is to link important phrases right in the text of your hub to other relevant hubs. I've seen a few examples where Hubbers had dumped literally hundreds of links to their other hubs at the bottom of every one of their hubs. Don't do that!
thanks, everyone! I think my use will be okay then. I'm certainly not looking at that many links...at most 3 or 4 to other relevant hubs.
Paul, I'll have to experiment and see if it works better to have the links in the text or in a link capsule. I'm still learning, but I thought I might see if my hubs with more traffic might help the lower traffic hubs on similar topics if I added the links near the bottom.
Thanks for clearing that up Paul! I will have to go back to a few of my hubs, which have about 16 max hub links and reduce to 12! Good advice!
@dineane, I forgot to add "Don't forget to include your (tracker)"..to find the details if you dont know the info is here at Hupages help section http://hubpages.com/faq/#affiliate
Or a hub which details it more by fellow hubber darkside How_HubPage_Tracking_Works
PS, I have never used the links capsule so i cannot advise! but you have the choice to use either!

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 bookmarking links,and 2 other links to free tools absolutely related to the...

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

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 promotional.I think we need to know if that still applies, because some of us are...

I just finished writing a hub on "The fear of public speaking".It was part of a paper I did back in school, but wasn't used as a paper for grading. I found a warning on my hub that says my hub is overly promotional because it has 3 or more links to a single domain? I included the...

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

Today I hopped a few hubs and as usual I flagged a lot of them for being overly promotional, for having two links to the same site. The breach of the rules was obvious. For example, in a hub on the subject of weight loss there were two links and each one went to (I am making this up)...
