Do in-text links drive down Hub Author scores?
What is the point of HubKarma and the "suggest links" button?
I can understand your concern, by your score. I recently added hundreds of in-text links, and did not experience anything negative. The point of HubKarma and the tool are to generate more inter-linking, benefitting HubPages' search engine standing as a whole.
That's what I thought. I am still trying to work out what has happened to make my score tank as it has. I have taken out all the rss feeds that I had added, thinking they too were helpful to the site, but that doesn't seem to have helped.
I reallydon't understand what's going on as page views are up and individual Hub scores are stable, or, if anything, slightly up.
I have tried emailing the team but have not had any response. If I knew what I had done wrong I could put it right.
Thanks for responding.
