For a couple of months now there have been no suggestions by this tool. I have to select whatever phrases or words I want to link. What has happened to all the suggestions this tool used to give?
Why would your Karma score drop from 97 to 87 in one week even though you have been using the link suggestion tool for all your hubs?
My understanding is that some (or most) hubbers were misusing the link suggestion tool. Not by intention. They just didn't understand how to use it to their (and the site's) benefit.
Of course, the tool itself was imperfect and it was easy to misuse, so Hubpages must have discontinued supporting it.
The bottom line is: do not use the link suggestion tool. If you want to link to relevant material, do it manually.
You can always increase your HubKarma score by linking to others' relevant hubs and the topic pages. It doesn't matter if you do it through the link suggestion tool or manually.
The only way I can think of that might lower your karma score is if you write new hubs and forget to link from them. Other than that, I don't know why it would drop without you doing anything. In fact, it must have very little effect on your hubber score. To be honest, I don't even see where the Karma score shows up any more, as I can't find it on my profile, my account or homepage.
I gave up using it as I found it wasn't helping but was actually causing problems with broken link alerts!

We've realized for a while that with our existing tools it can be very time consuming to manage links across a large portfolio of hubs. Many Hubbers have tried to handle the interconnecting of related hubs using...

I'm new to hp and am looking to find some info on the link suggestion tool. What is the best way to use this? Should I contact the hub writer and ask them for permission to link? I don't want to do...

If the link suggestion tool has highlighted a word by itself and I want to select a few words, including that word, to see link suggestions for, then I cannot do that. The link suggestion tool says it already contains a...
