I'm currently writing a hub and would like to link it to a few other hubs that pertain to my article. Do I need permission from the author?
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
You're fine. Link to my hubs if you want. LOL Just kidding. There is no rule for that. That is what HubKarma was about.
If you link to another Hub or website, you're doing the writer of that Hub or website a big favour, so there's no need to ask permission.
When deciding whether to include a Hub or website in their search engine results, Google looks at how many links there are to that Hub/site around the internet. So no educated Hubber or webmaster would ever refuse a link!
You can write to ask the Hubber or website owner if you like - but most internet-savvy Hubbers would wonder why on earth you were asking. If I got an email like that, I would think you were fishing for a thankyou or for me to give you a link in return.
But, as a member HP's community, I have always made my business to ask the individual if they minded. Courtesy more than anything else.
If the hub I'm interested in linking to does not come up with the link suggestion tool how do I create that link in a sentence? Thanks:)
By editing the text capsule, dragging the mouse over a keyword that is relevant to both(your hub and hub you're linking to), then clicking on the "chain-link" icon above(next to the broken chain-link) and inserting in the hub's URL, and click save.
Then click save on the text capsule.
People like to be linked it. Generally I just go ahead and do it.
I asked if I could link my hub to their site and noted they haven't posted anything in several months, I was concerned I may have to wait until they returned.
Thanks for replying so quickly. It's much appreciated it
Are you talking about linking outside of HP? If so, then you don't need anyone's permission to link to the site.
My post was referencing linking to other people's hubs. Some hubbers are picky about linking, because they would like to ensure that quality links are coming in to their writing.
Angelique, I guess you are doing the hubber you are linking to a favor by sending them some of your traffic .. well link your heart out and send them a line as courtesy

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub...

I know it's been asked before. I've even asked it before. But is there a better and easier way to bring in links to a link capsule from another hub. It'd make linking series so much easier. I spent about 2 hours...

Since our work here is copy written to the author, wouldn't it be prudent to ask the hub author if the link to the hub can be used in a different hub? We have to do that with pictures so what is the difference in...
