I have been wanting to add links to my hubs, but when I hit the "suggest links" button, nothing appears. It has been this way since I joined the site. Do you know why I am not able to access this option? Thanks in advance.
After you hit the suggest links button, you then need to highlight a part of the text of your hub. I suggest:
1. highlight text that is short, a few words.
2. highlight text that is contained in the title of another hub you have written or
3. highlight text that shows a concept you would think the reader would like more info on.
When you highlight, you will see green and black boxes with titles of other hubs. You need to click on the green plus sign to get that hub linked to your text.
WHEN you are done, click stop suggesting links back in the link suggestion box to your right.
Hope that explains it all.

For every word that I finish highlighting as a link, a nearby linking word in my hub becomes unlnked...

You use to be able to highlight a word or two and get a drop down of related Hubs. That don't happen anymore for me. I might get one 'community' style link, but nothing like it use to be with 8 or 10 related hubs you could choose to link too. I just don't see the significance...
