    I just wanted to know this happens often?

    What type of hyperlinks are you talking about; i mean is it your affiliate links or external links or the links to internal hubpages or your link to hubpage? Please make it bit clear...

    Carol, are you highlighting the text in which you want to embed the link, then clicking on the chain in the text box? That's where you add the link. If you copy the link from the search bar on which the page appears, you can just paste it into the link box.

    It's best to copy/paste so you get the entire URL. Perhaps you're missing some of the http://www and all the forward slash parts of the link. That's the only thing I can think of that would stop your hyperlinks from working.

    Also, if you're copy/pasting from Word, check the links before you add the copy to your hubs.

      I finally got it to work and followed your advice..But, it only links back to the original hub...Another site as me to write an article and hyperlink to the site.  Thanks for the help here. They sent me the correct link to copy and paste.

      Carol, follow this practice for all links you want to embed. I also recommend writing all your hubs in Word before you post them. That way you have record and you can test your hyperlinks. Word 2007 wants you to paste the copied link via Control V.
