Hi everyone! When checking my hubmetrics, I noticed that several hubs that I know have incoming links from facebook, ezines, etc. often show maybe 2 asterisks when I know they have more. I have established quality links that relate to the hub. If I would have 2 articles relating to a hub on ezines, wouldn't that show up as 2 links? Still trying to understand how it all works.
The incoming asterisks are NOT literal, meaning you don't accrue one for each incoming link.
It's a symbolic representation that runs on a scale of 1-5.
relache, I don't know how many times you've popped up to answer my questions here and I so appreciate your kind attention. But symbolic? Symbolic of what? That sounds so mysterious!

Well thanks for clearing that up. Must find new links.

All of my incoming links in the stats section are now showing only one incoming link. Previously, some showed 5 links. Has anyone else noticed a loss of links?~Jen
