what is a nofollow link? and what are the advantages? and how do you get them?
The only advantage a no-follow link could have is if it is placed on a site where it will get seen by a lot of people, therefore potentially generating referral traffic from that site.
There is zero advantage as far as search engines are concerned. That is why no-follow was created to prevent search engines from using them in their rating algorithms and cut down on link spam.
You don't want them. They have no advantages compared to the other kind of link, which is do-follow.
Both no follow and do follow links lead to your website if someone clicks on them. However it's only the do follow links which Google counts towards your backlink tally, which increases your pagerank on Google.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

Does backlinks from your own hubs or someone else's hub count as a proper backlink for the search engines? Cheers.
