I believe I remember reading that the more commercial your Hub is meaning more outbound links to your website ect. the lower your Hub score will be. This also means less vistors to your Hubs which means less clicks and less money will be made with Google Adsense. But aren't you much more likely to actually make more money by having a little bit lower score like maybe 90 instead od 95-100 and directing people to your website by having a link to your website at the end of each article where you could sell a product for $20 or more vs earning a few cents per click on Hubpages?
Are there people that have a link to their website at the end of each Hub that actually consistantly have a Hub score of 95-100?
Roughly speaking would you get about twice the traffic with a 100 score vs 90?
3 different things.
ALL my hubs have a link to my site at the bottom. I'm a writer. So I advertise I'm for hire. Simple.
That doesn't make the hubs commercial or mean I'm selling something. You seem to think they go hand in hand - They don't - mine is on EVERY hub very blatantly advertising what I do and it's just a backlink to my site - you couldn't buy anything on there if you tried except my latest ghostwriting book, which is fairly well hidden.
I believe so. I'm hovering at around 93-94 as a score (92 on weekends not sure why but maybe with time to spare to ponder such trivia will enlighten me I'm sure) and if that link stops my getting to 95-100 so be it.
I don't believe so but I may be wrong. How would people coming in from outside hubpages know my hubscore anyway? And that's the traffic I want - google/yahoo etc. Do they care? I figure that if someone comes into hubpages looking for something or other, then gets to one of my hubs via an internal link thats a bit tenuous and random - therefore unrelaiable. Better to aim to pull in the traffic from outside MYSELF with keywording, backlinking etc. And that traffic coming in direct to me from the outside world doesn't care about my hubscore. They're looking for my content.
Julie, I think you have a misconception here. Your hubs ARE overly promotional because of consistent linking to the same domain. As soon as it gets attention of HP management, you'll get hit. Also, they ARE commercial because they link to your site.
I'll remove it if need be - I did ask Ryan about this at the beginning and he said it was ok. I asked if there wasn't a "signature box" or something we could set up - there wasn't but they've never said I can't backlink one per article. It's the only self link there is on there.
Overly promotional does result in a flag. But a commercial hub doesn't mean a lower hubscore.
Hey darkside you've got a hubscore of 97 - do you get twice as much traffic as me because of it do you reckon? Those eyes probably draw in twice as many ladies...
You probably get twice as much traffic as I do. I think the general consensus was that avatars of beautiful women attract more click thru attention.
I do know that if I had an avatar of George Clooney that people, both male and female, feel far more at ease. And if it were one of Simon Cowell (American Idol judge) it would result in people becoming automatically defensive whenever I offer an opinion or suggestion.
Oh I won't win any traffic wars that's for sure - either with the hubs stats or the avatar! Simon Cowell is tempting. He's just begging me to set up a fake HP account and give music reviews, isn't he?
And intentional or not, that made my day!
I noticed that traffic increase from outside sources = raise in Hubscore, it isn't conformable, but it seems likely as Hubpages does track where your visitors are coming from, so why can't that script into the score.
I think that's where our OP is amiss.
He's got it the other way around.
More traffic = higher hubscore.
The way he's looking at it it appears he thinks higher hubscore = more traffic.
I don't think there was any exception granted at all - so I think it just slipped under the radar - Hup was new so maybe he didn't know at the time - and I'll probably get asked to change them soon!

I have just come across several of my articles that have links embedded at the bottom to get the reader over to a largely unrelated Maven article. It's also only apparently on the mobile version, where it seems perhaps we are less likely to notice it. It's not just a link but the article...
