I am working on compiling a list of resources for writers. This is essentially for my own use, but I figured it might be of interest to other online writers, and could actually be a hub page. My problem is this will at best be an annotated list of links. While none of them will be links to my own sites, I wonder if this is somehow a problem? I don't want to create a hub that will be perceived as low quality, and I am perfectly ok with leaving the list as a page in my Google documents folder Just wondering what might work best.
Been looking through the FAQ and can't find anything concrete regarding the issue. What I did find was this:
Please note that promotional links are links that you have any interest in promoting (your blog, your Website, affiliate offers, etc.). Links to well-known Web resources which you don't have any personal interest in (like Wikipedia, news sites, encyclopedias, open directories, etc.) are exempt from this limitation.
I am not sure what the rule is about web resource which are not on the same scale as wikipedia, the ODP etc stand - when they are definitely not my own sites. I guess I better play it safe though and avoid setting up this hub.
I have been thinking about your qestions..
If there are no more than two link (URLs) to the same domain at your hub, then you are fine!..
You will know if your hub is not acceptable before you publish! by saving unpublished with warnings like this
WARNING: This hub is in danger of being flagged as Overly Promotional and/or Substandard.
I would write a hub and leave the link to your blog-website with all the links you want to leave..
I don't think you'd have any peoblem with this so long as you did a writeup about each link, actually

Hey all....Is it worth it (traffic wise/ income wise) to put links to major sites in hubs? Like if you said, I read this article in Vouge (and made the word vouge a link), would that reap any benefits?Also....how would I make a word a link in a hub posting?Thanks much!Kayla
