Open Site Explorer has a new spam rating for subdomains

    Go to open site explorer and put in your profile link:


    It should give you a spam rating out of 17.

    You are OK as long as your score is under 5.

    For an explanation of what each flag element is, see the following article:

    Everyone on hubpages will get flagged for a few such as "brand mentions" and "contact info", so ignore the rating if it is under 5. It's when it's over 5 that you are probably doing stuff that you shouldn't be.

    Very interesting link.  I checked and I am OK since it is under 5.

      I just looked at that, and I am under 5 overall, but one of the individual links is at 5 and another at 4.
    Since it says they are "inbound links,"  and I don't even recognize the sites named, I have no clue what that is about.

    This is a great link; I bookmarked it so I can use it again when I'm more established. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    Well all my sites stand at around 1 to 2. So all is good!
    Domain authority is 88/100 but do not really know what this means.

      I got a 3. My domain authority was also 88/100, if only I knew what it means. Nice tool.

        Presumably it means that HP is good.  That should refer to the root domain, of HP dot com, not your subdomain.
