    If you are familiar with, I'd love to hear what you think of the site. Like many other hubbers I currently have traffic issues, and according to " has too many outer links. Our advice to webmasters is to decrease number of this urls."

    Almost all the outbound links it cites are nofollow and to people on HubPages. Several of the people I have supposedly linked to I haven't even heard of before. Yet I have often added links to sites such as government statistics or help pages, and none of them is listed.

    Anyone know how reliable statsie is?

    Have never actually heard of it before but I have just gone to it and on its home page it is displaying top stats for "this week", 17 September to 24 September 2012.

    Think that tells me all I need to know, I'm afraid... sad

      Thanks Gordon. I take it that means don't pay them too much attention?

        That's what first glance says to me, Melovy. If they are truly a site that is on the ball with SEO and traffic issues, why are they displaying "weekly" stats that are two months out of date?

    I have not heard of but this is very interesting. I am always looking for ways to improve my traffic. Certainly want to change anything that takes away from SE recognition. Would love to know more about it!

    I put my domain into Statsie and the results didn't seem to be accurate to me.

      They aren't. But not only that, it gives no useful information whatsoever. I had "too many outbound links" also, with 3. That site is garbage.

    Thanks Sapper and CWanamaker. The stats didn't make sense to me, which is why I asked. Seems strange to create a site like that.

    While I certainly bow to the answer given by Sapper, CWanamaker and Gordon, I just  had to add, there are so many people out there who have nothing better to do than skip around the Internet causing trouble and making false have to be very careful who you trust.  Thank God for places like the HP forum where you can get HONEST answers!

    I agree with Sapper - I just happened upon it and I get this message on my most popular  website:
    We removed for violations! For more information contact us! and NO way to contact them.. I also get too many outbound links.. it's crap.. without a doubt, not updated at all properly..

    Google Webmaster Tools will show you most of your backlinks for your subdomain.  You can also check the data base on  NoFollow links to your subdomain Profile or to individual Hubs have no effect so long as you do have some good Followed links.  You should at least have good Followed links from the Topic pages on HP. Links from Facebook are NoFollow.

    Google likes a webpage with Followed outbound links so long as the links are to pages relevant to the content and to excellent webpages.
