What is the use of improving hubkarma?
Others can't see our hubkarma like the hubscore. So I'm wondering what is the use of improving our hubkarma.
Hubkarma lifts up your score slightly. It just shows how much you link to other hubbers hubs and keep the traffic within HubPages.
I does not help you too much because logically speaking it takes traffic away from your hub to another hub if linked to other hubbers hubs
Hubkarma is a good tool for helping other hubbers.
I think too many hubbers are selfish in the fact that if it does not help them personally they are not interested.
Like others have said, I think the main benefit is to help other hubbers and I guess the 'karma' part is that another hubber will link to your hubs at some point.
It also works if you link to your own hubs. So you can boost your hubkarma by linking to your other related hubs. That's a good idea anyway and you don't lose traffic.
The same concept applies to real Karma. You do something for other people, and it will help you in the end.
Nothing to do with hub scores but helps you link-up with community and help hubers find them their related articles.
from what I can tell my hubkarma has raised my hubrank. The basic idea is that the more you link to other peoples hubs the more likely you will get linked to later on or at some point.
By encouraging and helping us link to other related hubs, we are increasing the "authority" of the hubs, and Hub Pages as a whole. It's good for us all.
It is a brilliant interlinking tool.

My hub karma score is going high. I don't know if this means I am over linked to other hubs. But some how the traffic is down.No idea if this is because of linking. Does it make sense to believe that those to whom we link will link back to our hubs?

Hi-A couple of (unrelated??) questions today... 1) I was reading the Hub Karma section, and notice it emphasies 'links to other's hubs' as a major factor. Lately, I've been using the 'suggest links' feature--apparently this is not the same? It most often DOES provide a link to...

I have started hubbing recently and want to know what actually hubkarma does . If I link someone else's hub from my own hub will they know it and link back to mine? how can linking to other's hubs be beneficial to me? I also want to find out if your hub karma score can make your hubs appear on the...
