Immortals, There Can Be More Than One!

There was an interesting show called "The Highlander" which played in the 90's, and has parallels to hub pages. The story was about Duncan MacLeod from the clan MacLeod. He was an "Immortal" who lived forever or until he lost his head ( by a mortal or immortal). Any time that he was near another Immortal, they could sense the presence of each other, and were compelled to duel with swords to the death! After an Immortal took the head of his advisory, he would experience the "Quickening" in which he would gain the strength and experience of all the past opponents taken by this particular Immortal. In the end there could only be one surviving Immortal!

In hub pages there are more than a few "immortals", or individuals with very high scores. Although a high score is relative to your own score, I rate anyone from 100-98 as a definite immortal! The great thing about hub pages is that a hubber with the lowliest of scores can raise their own score by linking to the hubs of these" Immortals". Their page rank raises your page rank! While your motives for linking to their hubs may be completely self serving on your part, you are helping out their cause by increasing traffic to their site! This is why using the suggestion linking tool is so important, and makes linking to other high ranking hubs so easy! While linking to your own hubs makes sense, keep in mind that you can only use two links to any one hub. If you have an opportunity to link to a much higher rank hub score than your own it most likely makes good sense to do

What goes around... The term Hub karma score refers to the way that you link to other hubbers and forums and interact with others on hub pages. A high Hubkarma score, raises your over all hub score! So although you can gain strength and experience from the"immortals" like on "The Highlander" hub pages is not a zero sum game. "There Can Be More Than One!" Helping others by linking to their hubs and posting comments to hubbers that you follow, helps yourself in the process ( and that's karma!)

Social Bookmarking sites. On the subject of page rank I would be remiss if I did not mention the benefits of Social Bookmarking sites. As I have stated in the past Digg, Reddit and Stumble Upon are the big three. By posting your hubs to them you will increase page rank and your traffic. Remember that although all traffic is good, traffic that comes from sources other than hub pages (like Bing or Google) are the most valuable, because they are your target audience and are more likely to click on your ads.

Not all Book Marking Sites accept hub pages. Both Propeller and Mixx say they don't accept hubpages( something about spam!) Here is how I got around it. First I submitted my hubs to Digg, then I submitted my Digg hubs to Propeller, Then I submitted my Propeller hubs to Mixx ( Mixx would not accept my hubs from Digg!)

A note on one day becoming a hub "immortal" your self. My advise is stay clear from Politics and Religion when it comes to your hubs and likewise for the Forums and Questions and Answers. Most hubbers that fall in to the "immortal" category have the good sense to avoid these subjects. The main reason being the same reason that you avoid them on a first date, you can never make a second impression! When it comes to Politics or Religion, hot button issues, no matter how hard you try to walk the" tight rope" you're bound to tick hubbers off. So by concentrating on Political and Religion oriented hubs you can effectively "turn off" over half of the potential audience pool for followers! Then there's what as known as "trolls" or hubbers seeking revenge because of philosophical differences, and will vote down any or all hubs you have written to get even. This is why anyone seeking a high score should avoid these subjects and make sure that they treat all hubbers with respect! So to recap, to get a score of 98-100 it is really hard (but not impossible) to dabble in Politics or Religion!

I frequent the politics and religion forums, but I don't get into heated arguments. Great tips here!

I think you are wise for avoiding heated arguments in these forums! I have noticed hubbers getting knocked down score wise for fairly middle of the road answers that seemed pretty logical! I guess some issues have no middle ground. Thanks habee for your post!

An excellent Hub. Though I am not sure I agree that steering clear of religion and politics is the key. I have noticed that those who are Atheists and Social Liberals are among the immortals. I would say it is more accurate to say steer clear of these topics if you believe in God and believe in traditional American values. :D

Thanks James A Watkins for your post! I'm not sure of the leanings of the immortals when it comes to religion and politics, it would make an interesting survey! To say that a larger percentage of academia lean towards Social Liberal and Atheistic or agnostic beliefs is most likely accurate!

I have yet to use those other bookmarking sites and should probably start investigating them. Your advice about religion and politics is well taken and I only occasionally venture into those areas. But they certainly do stir the sentiments! Rating this useful!

Yes, bookmarking sites will increase your page rank and increase your Google & Bing traffic. My experience with politics and religion comes from observing hubbers in the Answers section getting very large negative scores, for middle of the road responses to hot button issues like abortion, creation ,Barrack Obama or George Bush.

Ah, I never know this. If religion become mortal that is mean I will never reach immortal place, since not just several of my Hubs but also my Pic profile keep making me got several bad review. Hmmm...

But, James is right, many atheist fighter around HubPages get their place around immortal, so maybe, somehow, there always a chance for me? :)

Actually Freya Cesare, there are several hubbers that concentrate on religion & politics and manage high scores. It makes things more challenging, but with that said if your passion lies with these topics, then those are the ones you should choose.
