How To Link To Tags of Just My Hubs

    Let me start off by saying that I apologize for having to post and run.  I have a 2 year old ready to go "nite-nite" but if I don't ask this, I've very likely to forget I wanted to know. smile  So thanks to everyone now who takes the time to answer and I'll check back in a little bit.

    Now on to my question...

    I'm wanting to link to just my hubs. What I want to do is, for example, "True Crime Short Stories by Kim Cantrell"  but I have hubs not on those topics and don't want a reader to have to wade through them.  How can I link just to those hubs but not necessarily ALL hubs with the same tag.

    Hope my question makes sense and it hasn't been asked 100 times over (I swear I searched first! lol)  And again, thank you for taking the time to assist me. smile

      This might help as it uses the hubber specific tags for an rss feed which of course you can link to in each hub if you want, so long as it is a related subject (which it should be if they share tags).

    Hey Kim,

    You can use "embedded" link within your content to link to your hubs without having to use the "RSS Feed" feature offered by HubPages.

    I would recommend that you use specific keywords related to both contents. Meaning, that the keywords/tag that you plan on using would be relevant to both hubs you're content is on.

    You can highlight a word/tag/keyword by dragging your mouse across the "word" and then clicking on the chain-link icon to the left of the "broken" chain-link icon. You will have a window pop up and you will be given couple of options to choose from. Now, you can insert the URL/Web Address for the hub in the top white box or you can click on the smaller drop down menu that is located in the second row of boxes- it will have a mean that states "my hubs" or "hubs" or "amazon". You can select "my hubs" and it will give you a list of your hubs with that "word" you highlighted in them.

    The RSS Feed is only one option. The other available option you have to link to your hubs would be the link capsule.

    Hello Kim - I find using the 'groups' section in a selected way helps with navigating people to hubs on similar topics.

    If anyone has not yet used this feature -

    1. Go to groups via your account page.
    2. Set up topic groups in so you might have one for crime and one for comedy.
    3. Each time you publish a hub and it is placed in a group - go to the group page again and drag it to the location between the hubs that you want the person to navigate to from the new hub. You will find they appear at the foot of the hubs you have published in that group.

    Or/ another way is to add them as simple links (through using a links capsule) at the foot of the page or by sending the links capsule to sit at the right in a suitable location on the page.
