I just noticed we now have all the links to profiles nofollowed on forums. I wonder if this was done intentionally? The funny thing is - Squidoo recently nofollowed fan links, and rankings plummeted. Of course I can't say if it was because of nofollow, but timing is suspiciously close. Will watch closely how my HP rankings will behave
Misha, I think it's only in the newest "Extreme Hub Makeover" section that uses nofollow. I just checked the source on your post in here and it doesn't use no follow with the link to your profile.
This is a good question. We have never seen a single link on our sites from Hubpages. Many sites use a nofollow that is invisible to users. Has anyone else actually seen links on Google, MSN or Yahoo reports for your site(s) from Hubpages links?
If so, what is the rules for follow links here because mine don't follow? Can you show me where the rules are?
If you use Firefox or Flock you can install a plugin that will show you nofollow links. Otherwise you have to check the source code.
And in a couple of places, too - sometimes the individual links look OK, but elsewhere in the source code the entire PAGE has been tagged "nofollow".
Much easier to use Firefox and a plug-in.

Hi, I just thought I would sign up for Xomba for my back links as Redgage is a complete waste of time as I can never get a link to work! So I joined blogger and I don't like that! So tonight I thought I would have a go...

I am confused.I don't really understand:1) the full reason why a follow or no-follow may be automatically assigned to any link2) when inserting a link via the "link" tool within the body text of the hub,...
