Embedding links in my hub

    Hello all,

    I have a question. Sorry if the answer is either obvious, or can be found easily (although I doubt both).

    I am currently writing my first hub. I fact it's almost finished. It's about the Art galleries of London. I want to provide a hyperlink using the name of each gallery, linked to the gallery's home page. You know the sort of thing - the words "National Gallery" in blue, you click, it takes you to the home page.

    Three questions:

    1. Are hyperlinks allowed in hubpages?
    2. If so, how does one go about it?
    3. If so, is it a good idea (after all, this form of clicking ain't gonna earn me any money!)

    Thanks, Steve

    Re. 1) It is allowed, up to 2 links to the same domain in each hub.

    Re. 2) In editing mode, type the text as you want it to appear, then highlight that. Click on the chain-link icon, paste in the URL for the site you want to link to, click save.

    Re. 3) It is a good idea, insofar as relevant outbound links make the hub more useful for readers, which may also help your search engine position.
