I'm seeing 5 stars(*****) for a hub which I haven't bookmarked or submitted to any such sites/directories. Do the stars mean the search engine referrals or something else? And, 5 stars stand for how many incoming links?
Can anyone explain? Thanks

If you want specific data, go see what your Google Analytics says about that Hub.
