I was noticing on Webmaster tools that many links to my Hubs come from within Hubpages itself. Do these links have any value in terms of search engines, indexing, organic traffic, etc.?
Supposedly they are good SEO. Don't use more than 2 or 3 in one hub, and use links of hubs that are relevant to the hub where you are placing the links, whether it be your hubs or those of another writer.
I think some of the links Nate's referring to aren't the ones the author specifically added, but come from HP, like the little "Explore Other Hubs" sections that appear.
The explore other hubs probably beneifts HP, and not the writer since links are not in the hub itself. I am just guessing at that theory.

In one of my hubs, within the first 4 or 5 lines, I have 6 links, all to other hubs by me.1) Will this affect SEO?2) Will people be put off by this many links and not click on any or even just leave the page...
