      I think I may have answered this question in a another forum, but the problem is the links to your recipes.  They have nothing to do with your article on feet.

      I don't think there is any limit to the number of links, so long as they are relevant and have no more than 2 to the same site, unless the site is an authority site like wikipedia.

      You can also link to your own hubs as often as you like, so long as the content relates to the topic of the hub.

      I am surprised they have left your hub published with all those links to your recipe hubs, which have nothing to do with soft feet.

      It must depend on who moderates it at the time, but to be on the safe side you might want to reconsider having links to recipe hubs on that hub. It will confuse Google's spiders as to what the hub is about.

          I realised after I'd posted that you have another thread going on the same topic, but I'm thinking that perhaps you haven't been active on HP this past year as many changes have been brought in to appease Google (which you may have missed).

              I had a similar problem and had a Hub unpublished. Now I make sure EVERYTHING in the Hub is relevant to the topic. I don't want to get unpublished again.

    Have you considered changing some of the titles on your cooking hubs?  sad

    You know, to help make a closer relationship with Feet!

    Like:

    'How to make 2 minute noodles using only your soft kissable and grubby feet!'

    or

    '5 tips on mixing ingredients using only your big toe!'

    I'm sure this niche is wide open for ped-antic domination! big_smile

    Good Luck... Put your Best Foot forward and don't spare the socks!! yikes  big_smile

    In a recipe hub can I link my other recipes that are not connected.
    eg. to my hub 'how to make chili paste' can I link 'how to make Thai barbecue?

      Do that within the edit mode and within the body of work within the text capsule. Highlight relevant keywords and embed your link from the choices suggested... or simply use the link suggestion tool offered at the top of your hub.

        Can't I link it like I have done on the hub 'ways of choosing, cutting and cleaning fish'

        Thank you pearldiver.

          You know strangely you may (as I do) find that the embedded links out perform the others!  Try it until you expand the number of hubs that fall within the niche you are trying to build and then work a combination of the two methods.. that way you don't incur these types of penalties!  You will see... good luck. smile
