    I am confused about how to use the suggested link tool. The moment I am clicking this tool very few highlighted words are appearing. Even i'm unable to understand that where this link will be reflected. If possible, kindly explain the process in details and where can I see the added links. I am unable to link my hubs as I am only three hubs old. Waiting for your help and response.

      Sometimes you may have to wait and come back later to see if there are more links found by the link tool. But when you have the link suggestions put your mouse's cursor above the name of the suggestions. If the word, 'ontario' is highlighted by the tool when you click on it you should see a list on other Hubs on that topic. When you put your mouse's cursor above one of the names it should open up a window showing you the Hub which you might link to.

        Thanks for wanting to help me but still it is not free from confusion. Couldn't find any instruction box on the right hand side. Doubts are there, need a solution.

    Welcome to Hubpages, shampa sadhya!

    When you click on the "suggest links," highlighted words and phrases will show on your hub.  There will be an instruction box in black background on the right side of your hub.

    Click on a highlighted word or phrase to see link suggestions for that word or phrase. If you like any of the links suggested, click on the plus sign (+) next to a link suggestion to add the link to your Hub.  The suggested links can be other hubs or community posts.

    If you don't see anything you like on the suggested links, simply go to another highlighted word or phrase and repeat the process.   

    When you finish linking, click "stop suggesting links" at the bottom of the black instruction box on the right side of your hub.  Then your hub will go back to normal.  You will see the links you made - the linked words and phrases will be colored blue.  If you click on those links it will take you to the hubs or posts the words or phrases are now linked to.

    I hope this helps.

    Kindly, clear my doubts as no instruction box found in the suggested link tool. Thanks to the fellow hubbers for answering my query but doubts are still there.

      The link suggestion tool is a tool for your Hubs that makes it easy to add links to your other Hubs, other authors' Hubs, and topic pages.

      To use the link suggestion tool, sign in to HubPages and navigate to one of your Hubs.

      You will see a button near the top of the page that says "suggest links."

      Click on the button to reveal link suggestions for your Hub, as well as more detailed instructions for using the tool.

      The link suggestion tool can be used to improve your HubKarma.

      The alternative to using the tool is to find other Hubs that are relevant to yours, and then link to them.
