Go to one of your hubs. Above the title you will see a black bar with buttons on it. Select "suggest links" and a box will appear with your hubkarma.
Literal, I would regard that as a good thing! Forget your HubKarma score, it's unimportant - and I think HubPages has realized that, and that's why they've made it less visible.
It's good to interlink your own Hubs on the same topic - not just by using the Group feature, but by using a "related" RSS feed, or mentioning your other Hubs in context.
However, you should only link to your own Hubs - or to other Hubs - when it makes sense, and adds value to the reader. If you start linking just to raise your HubKarma score, it will backfire.
For one thing, readers dislike seeing too many hyperlinks sprinkled all over a Hub. For another, linking to lots of other Hubs only encourages the reader to leave your Hub - and not click on your ads!

Hi-A couple of (unrelated??) questions today... 1) I was reading the Hub Karma section, and notice it emphasies 'links to other's hubs' as a major factor. Lately, I've been using the 'suggest links'...
