No follow tags

    It would great if hubpages.com removed the "no follow" tags from our account page that points to our hubs using keyword text. Not only would this get the search engines to index our hubs fast, more traffic would come too which everyone benefits from.

      The nofollow tags aren't stopping Search Engines from indexing your hub, just to disregard the destination of the links.

    I believe over a certain hubscore the nofollow disapears  -but cant find the reference to hand at the moment!

    When Hubs are high quality, the latest, best, and hot sections don't have the nofollow attribute.

    However, in the tag map where there are several links, and in the hubtivity we do apply nofollow to certain types of links to avoid duplicate content issues, like links to comments.  And we also do it to discourage spamming.

    I hope this explanation helps.
