Have you seen more than 5 stars in your Hub metrics under the Incoming Links field?
I have no idea what this is about. Could you please tell me where this is and what it means?
Each hub has some hub metrics: a rough and ready guide to how that individual hub is doing.
The hub metrics is un likely to be populated until it's been live for at least a month.
Once it's been going, go to:
Click on the Hub You're Interested In (NOT the edit button)
At the top, between EDIT and DELETE is a tab STATS
You will see the traffic for that individual hub.
See the tabs just above that graph, there's one HUB METRICS
You'll now see:
Word Count: it tells you how many words are in your hub
Revenue Potential: between 1 and 5 dollar signs. This is just a guess at how profitable your hub might be. $$$$$ indicates that it's likely to be more profitable for you (adsense income) than a hub with just $
Incoming Links: This will be an indicator of how many inbound links that hub has
View Duration: How long people stay on your hub on average. If it's not long enough then it's either not what they expected, or looks confusing/a mess/too short.
Under that is a chart that shows the traffic for that individual hub.
Hope that helps.
