Are these considered dofollow backlinks?

    Hi, my question is about RSS feeds in hubs, if I put an RSS feed in a hub to my hubs, is it considered a backlink?
    What about the "Related hubs", Is that considered a backlink to these "related hubs"?

    I dunno, but these change with new hubs published, can it be?

    thanks in advance

    Well, it's considered an internal link. And I have no idea if internal links are marked DoFollow or NoFollow.

    What you also want are good one-way, DoFollow, external links from relevant authority sites.

    I could be wrong, but I always was under the assumption that internal links helped bots to find you, thus getting you indexed. External links help to establish your authority, thus getting you ranked.

    I'll look to Darkside to weigh in on this one.

    Links to other hubs are dofollow. External links ( RSS or links in text ) are also dofollow if you have a hubber score more than 75

    is it that links to a hub is always dofollow?

    I'm new and still a little confused about the dofollow aspect of HubPages. This is my question.

    Does an individual Hub have to be 75 to get a dofollow to an outside page from that specific Hub, or does every Hub get a dofollow if the Hubber has a 75, even if that specific Hub does not?

    Part 2 is what kind of PR does a dofollow link from HubPages carry?

      1) No, individual Hubs have to be over 40.
      2) Yes

    Thanks for the info. That's valuable to know.

    HuPages.com itself has a PR of 6/7. Individual Hubs will have a PR less than that, probably 0 to start. Any general sense of how many backlinks it takes to an individual Hub to get the Hub PR to 2 or 3?

    I'll be experimenting myself with that. I already did an Ezine article that I pointed only to a Hub. I'll have to do a backlink from that Hub to an outside page and check Google Webmaster to see if shows up and if it has a PR>0.

      When first published a hub has no page rank. Keep building back links and it will get a good page rank.
      There are many factors in determining page rank , I wouldn't worry much about it , just keep acquiring quality back links and PR will take care of itself.

    Generally these are followed links, as are the links from the other hubs in your group, as are the links from tag pages.  These can all contribute to your page ranking just as well as off site pages.  take a look at your page with the Yahoo site explorer tool, and you will see most of your pages have a number of links. 

    I've seen them vary from only 20 or 30 internal backlinks up to over a thousand in some categories.  I have a few PR 3 hubs that have over 400 internal links, all generated by Hubpages.

      Most of those internal links are generated by tag pages right ?

        I didn't go through all of the them but the hub didn't have more than about 20 tags so my impression was that it was primarily from related hubs in the category.  I'm pretty sure that the tags are instrumental in choosing related hubs, however.
