    In the HubPages "Answers and Question" section, it is okay in the answer to provide a link to one of own Hub article?

    What about in the Forum section?

      What about putting own links in the comments of other people's post?  Is that okay?

        BlissfulWriter I'm glad you asked that question.  I am new and was wondering the same thing.  Hope someone gives us the answer.

    I don't think it is okey to put your own link someone's post.

    If in doubt, don't.  In the forums links to hubs you have are not allowed other than in the hub critique subforum.

    General rule of thumb.

    Only drop a link if it is relevant to the topic.  Reading about how to make strawberry ice cream.  You got a post on making the world's greatest chocolate ice cream, drop a link. You hove a post on why you like purple shirt fridays, don't link.

    This thread is still in need of the precise answer from someone who knows the answer for certain.  I don't happen to know for certain, so I'm not going to pretend I do.  On HubPages "general rule of thumb" isn't necessarily what to go by, so I'd go with what psychskinner said ("when in doubt don't do it")

    Just a note on the link-posting thing in general:  So many people are under the impression that posting a link in things like other people's Hubs is OK as long it's "relevant".  That's not necessarily true, as a lot of link-posters often discover.  These days people are going to be more careful than ever about what links get posted where on this site.
