Ok, not counting any traffic this question/forum post generates, why does my "cats love us more than dogs" hub always, like totally always, end up on the top of my list? I'm not complaining, it's just, I have no idea what I did on that one that makes it rate so much better than all my other ones. Frankly, I've put way more effort into other ones, have more pics, more videos, more links, more... whatever. So, just curious. If any of you people who know how any of this crap works get bored and want to speculate, maybe you can tell me how to recreate what I did.
If you get the answer...please share it with me. I'm just as puzzled as you are about some of mine.
Top Ranked hubs are sorted by HubScore. HubScore depends on a lot of things, including quality backlinks, traffic, and how much of that traffic is from outside sources. Looks like that hub has several backlinks and gets a higher percentage of external/search engine traffic than some of your other ones, so those are two factors that might be boosting the score.
I give up. What's a backlink? I looked at the hub and I see nothing that looks like a backlink, whatever that is. Is that other people providing a link to this hub?
Yeah, a "backlink" as I understand it is when someone on some other website makes a url link to your site. The Google spiders crawl the Internet and count up how many times that happens and give your website (or hub) a bigger wiener rating based on how many ... uh, people talk about it.
Do hubpages backlinks count? or just external backlinks? Just curious :-)
I think they do, but that's a good question. I'd like to know for sure.
I'm not sure what you're asking in relation to. As far as helping your search engine rankings, internal links do help, but external links from reputable sources are even better.
Actually, I was just curious about the effects of internal links wrt. HubScore. Do they count? and do they count for more/less than external links?
Internal links are important, but they are counted in the Hub Metrics stars. In general the higher your hub and hubber scores, the more or better internal links your hubs is going to get.
Alright, I will. I will post any answers I get on this right here, in this thread.
This tread...this one right here...this VERY tread?? Damn...I would have been looking for a THREAD. So thank you ever so much for steering me in the proper direction. I shall henceforth look for treads.
/flees with a grin
Of course now everyone will tell me I should be nice to you blah blah blah. It's okay though...I don't mind playing good hubber/bad hubber for you at my expense...really I don't.
And notice I made no reference to the word "is"....none whatsoever.
Maddy, thanks. I have no idea how I got backlinks it. Maybe some pet lovers gave me some back link love I guess.
And, Spryte, why would you edit out my "h" ?
I'mma have to start hitting your typos too. This could get ugly.
Nothing. Your super graphics manipulation and cyber injustice skills mean nothing to me. Everything on the Internet is a lie!
Ahhhh....that's right. I have a link on one of my own hubs to your cat lovin' hub.

How do I figure out why or where a spike in HP traffic to one of my hubs is suddenly coming from? I'm not complaining, but it's curious, and I'm wondering if there's some sort of glitch or something.
