Are links to HubPages 'No Follow'?
And what does 'No Follow' mean exactly? Are they totally worthless? How do you get 'Do follow' links - without much effort!!
'No Follow' is an attribute given to a link on a web page to prevent the web page's authority (or link juice) from being transferred to another site. In other words, as far as Google is concerned, a link that has a 'no follow' attribute will not help your site's ranking.
Many sites 'no follow' all links. Facebook, Twitter, and Wikipedia are prominent examples. There is no SEO value to links on those sites, because they are no-followed.
Hubpages does allow followed links, but only when your user score and hubpage score reach a certain level. I'm not sure on specifics, but I believe your user score must be over 75.
View the source on your hubpage article and look for your links. They'll be enclosed in tags. If you see a rel="nofollow" on your link, it means it's not followed, and will not help your website in any appreciable SEO metrics.
No follow links are not worthless. Users still see links and click on them. They just won't boost your rankings.
As far as getting do follow links goes - there's a lot of ways. The best way is to build a site that people actually care about and would like to link to. But if you're site 999,999,999 selling cheap Viagra and Cialis, that probably won't happen.
In that case - you'd probably need to get involved in link exchanges, directory submissions, blog commenting, all that stuff. Happy hunting.
natural link building is best.. a mix of do-follow and no-follow is certainly OK.it's worked with Adobe and even non-brand sites. you're following an untruth like Fox Moulder.
Dump Microsucks Internet Explorer. Get Mozilla FireFox. In the Firefox Toolbar, enable the "NF" button. That is a toggle that indicates the "follow" or "nofollow" status of all links on a page.
I've had a look at Firefox but can't see a NF button. Can you explain where it is? (It doesn't help that mine is in French and can't see how to change the language, although I can usually understand enough to get along).
I have a hubpage score of 80 and all my links are no follow links. I think hubpages must have made a change to require a higher author score to get do follow links.

One of the advantages of having an overall hubber score of 75 or above is that we get 'Dofollow' links on our hubs, which are considered more valuable by Google when deciding search results.My question is, if my hubber...

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the...

I noticed in an old forum searchable thread from 11 months ago that Paul mentioned, "Currently we apply a nofollow meta tag to hubs with a HubScore below 40, but we may adjust this threshold in the future."I...
