If I find a related hub, should I ask if I can link their hub to mine? Of course, it would be mutually beneficial to both of us to be linked. Maybe we SHOULD contact the other hubbers so they will also link us to their hub, too?
Awesome, homesteadbound! Then we'll wait for the answer together. There's so much to learn. I researched hubpages, read all kinds of stuff before joining--and am still trying to learn stuff. The important thing, I think, is to keep writing, keep reading and commenting, and keep asking questions! Maybe one day WE will be the experts. haha
Some people don't seem to mind, but most of us prefer to be asked first.
It is always best to ask - you can contact the hubber directly, or ask when you leave them a comment.
Some people will include a link in their own hub to another writer's hub(s) without asking, however, it is much better to let them know what you have done, as they MAY wish to include a link back to you on their own hub (which can be good for the traffic of both writers).
If in doubt - ask first.
Across the top of each hub are 4 buttons: edit, stats, delete, suggest links. I haven't ever asked someone if I can link to their hub, since HP suggests hubs, I didn't ever think it would be a problem. And if someone wants to link to mine, really all the better because that means someone might jump over to my hub and give me a little traffic.
When investigating whether someone had written about what I wanted to write about, I found something that was related. The Linking tool did not suggest the hub, but I did do the connect myself. I noticed that the hubber was a newbie like me, so I did send her and email and told her what I did, and let her know that she might want to include a connect to my article to help both of us. But I do use the linking tool without even thinking about it. Trying to build up my HubKarma! But I like to make sure that it is a related link and not just something that sounds like it might be.
Thanks for the heads up. With the "suggested links" option, it never occured to me that this was an issue. I thought that linking another hubber's hub was a sign that you think highly of the hub and were not asking to have that person put a link of your own hub. In my hub on being here 2 months I had links to hubs of the people who helped me a lot getting started as a way of saying thankyou.
And sometimes I have started a hub because of something another hubber said and I want to give that person credit.
just a question: are there any times when a hubber doesn't want a link at all?

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 which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

As a new hubber I have yet to link into any of my hubs , hubs of others. I see often people do this. Some do it to enhance their information. Some possibly do it to earn some of the revenue on views ( if I understand that correctly)My question is in relation to how best to approach this? If I write...

I recently discovered a great hub that relates to one of my hubs, and I was wondering if we were allowed to suggest that in our hubs, and provide a link to it? I know there is a generated hub link at the bottom of our hubs, but this particular hub is not one of them, and I would like to add it.Can...

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 yesterday linking an old series that I have together. It included about 20 or so hubs...
