    After three days, I finally got my personal hubscore to 80! Does that mean my hubs are no longer listed as "no follow" ?  Can the non hupages public finally search and find my hubs!?  I cant wait!

      I think so I'm not too sure, as long as your keywords are something people are searching for they'd find it!

      good luck big_smile

      lol, congrats on the score increase, perhaps you may want to look up "nofollow" as it doesnt mean anything as drastic as you were suggesting

      Your hubs were no-follow at 75, just so you know, no-follow deciddes whether or not google follows a link, so before 75 it meant that your links to other websites would not be counted by Google.

      Google will have crawled your hubs 1-3 days after publishing them!

      Probably not, because Google may not have found your Hubs yet.  Even if they have been found, they're probably languishing on page 115.  But anyway, that has nothing to do with being "no follow" - that refers to links within your Hubs, not to the Hub itself.

      It takes time for Hubs to move up the rankings and get search engine traffic. Unless you've written on a topic that has very little competition, expect to wait a few months before you start getting decent external traffic.

      It's still above 75 so you're OK for your dofollow links smile

    Ahhh, thank you thisisoli! So no-follow here would only impact on me if I was trying to drive traffic to other web sites of mine. Since I don't have any other commercial web sites, it doesn't matter. Phew! No more hubscore worries for me smile

      yes, although it might affect your linking to other hubs, though you might want to get Paul Deeds or similar to see if Hubpages is exempts from the no-follow thresh hold.

    I've been on here a couple of weeks now. My own hubscore is 80+ and my hubs are in the 60-75 range. They're going up and down like little yo-yos so I guess it takes 2-3 months for them to stabilise.

    I like the fact that hubpages seems effective at weeding out the people who post 1-2 articles in order to get links to other affiliate sites etc.

    As long as you keep writing great stuff and putting good keywords in there, you should only get better.
