It's only a measure of how you link out to others, these are meant to be hubs; a page you go to for information with pointers as to where you can get more... Your hubs are meant to point out at other websites and hubs relevant to your subject... Remember that the more hubs that have links to you the better your ratings and position in the search engines also... Not a bad thing...
Then why my account 'truster' who has only 5 low quality hubs , and never comes in the forum, has a hubkarma of 33, and me, with more than 90 hubs , have only 15? I really don't get it. Not that I care, but I wonder.
What is a "good" Karma?? I have 51?? But I interlink all of my hubs as they are only across 2 subjects. The interlinking I hope allows readers to jump from one to next to get more information.
Google wants to see relevant information that is good for the reader, so having a page that points to other sources of information relevant to your page would using a bit of common sense make google happy.. Also if you have a page that is pointed at by other pages then google is going to think that your page is important. If you want your site to rank highly and attract readers from google then you need to follow google rules.. and google will look at the whole site not just your page on the domain, hence the need for everyone to do it for the benefit of the whole community..
I think you are changing the subject. You like it and want to work with that, I have understood as much and good for you. I don't like this additional interactivity it and don't want to look at it; that is what this thread supposedly is about.
Fine, no problem, just trying to understand it and get other peoples opinions too... I have no problem with it, it is just another number that only I can see.. The suggest links is very handy as it more often than not suggests my own pages for links so it makes it easy for me to interlink my hubs..
The reason that I like it is that it is trying to drive behavior that google will like, this will ensure that this site remains in google's good books and benefit everyone on the site.. Links out from your hub to elsewhere will not hurt you but it may make readers experience more pleasant, they don't have to go hunting for more information that catches their eye they just click the link.. Don't forget that if everyone does this then you will get links from other authors on the site.
I have already linked to other hubs from a couple of mine, I have generally chosen the ones that in my mind add value, and I will admit that I have not linked to hubs that I consider to be direct competitors.
Either way, I am more than happy with having a score of 1. A 0 would be fine too. Hell, I wouldn't care if I was banned from the whole karma thing all together. There are just so many more important things in my life than another number trying to measure something.
Im very interested in what equates to a high score in this metric.I recently have been linking out aLOT as a part of a recent group challenge.My Hubkarma is 47..I understand if you want to keep it to yourself.
I have added suggested links to most of my hubs. But, after a conversation in HP, I have decided it is to my best interest to disable ALL suggested links. But HOW?????I went to the hubs with the links, but I see No way...
I've been looking at the Latest Hubbers and doing a lot of HubHopping lately and noticed a pattern. Based upon some of what I have seen I am making some suggestions. I'm sure HubPages staff and moderators...
