    Hello guys, I'm a bit new to Hubpages, and I type out the web address to my business site, but it doesn't copy out as a link.

    How do I but links on my Hubpage? So that all people have to do is click on acouple highlighted words and it goes to my business website?

    If you want to add a link to a text box, you need to highlight the text you want to be the link.  Then there is a link button that looks like a chain (it only becomes accessible when you have highlighted text).  In my textboxes, it is the furthest icon on the right where the cut & paste, font, and bullet tabs are.  Another box will pop up where you can add the link.

    Hope that was clear and helps!

    I wouldn't make too many links if I were you or hub pages will de-publish your hub. I'm a newbie here too and received an email to say that i broke their TOS with too many links. These links are to a legitimate site and according to their TOS page I've done nothing wrong. I guess the TOS page needs to be made clearer. Any way the said hub in question is going to have some of links removed by myself. I see other hubs doing the same and with direct affiliate links so maybe I should have added affiliate links to different sites sad lol

    So if you're going to add links just don't add too many folks!

    I have trouble turning the link icon OFF after I've highlighted, so type your content first, then go back and highlight what you want to link to, not while you're typing.
