I just got done reading this, I don't know who it is but I do want to know if it is true.
It's not all false ... it's not all true ... and it's not a scam.
If your hub author score falls below 40 or a hubpage score falls below 40 (someone please correct me on this if I'm wrong) then your links will turn to don't follow.
Pure madness, eh?
Not if you realize the method to the madness ...
Google loves hubpages ... pages written here get a nice boost in Google, and that's because the hubpages system does a good job at weeding at the spammers and keeping them from sticking out in Google like a thorn.
Any hubber can achieve a score of 40 if they try. However, these guys are saying the bar is at 75 (which I heard it once was, but Paul recently said in the forums it's now 40 - I think I heard that here.
Regardless, 75 isn't impossible either. Write 10 decent hubs, stick around for a month, and you should hit that 75 easily. As you have already been here 8 months, writing a few more hubs will get you above 75.
As for a person disappearing and having their score lower, I think (again, I'm not sure) that writing new hubs bumps up your score and not writing for awhile can lower it. If this is the case, I can see a good reason why ... If this wasn't so, then a hubber could hit 100, do nothing more, and stand there forever.
Of course, this might not be the case, at which point I would venture a guess that the hubber either had a decrease in traffic or the hubpages algorithm favors members that are more active.
Again, someone much wiser than me should be answering this, but I am offering an answer as I see others passing this one by. Trust me, if Hubpages was a scam, I'd be hanging my hat elsewhere.
Write more hubs and you will see your traffic grow ... that's the secret. Just like at work when you work more hours and get paid more ... it works the same here. You also need to do quality work at your job to get paid, just like you do here.
Treat this place as a job you do for fun and are proud of, and in time you shall reap the rewards. At two months I can say this, as I have already started seeing a return at only 18 hubs ... and I intend to write more.
Just reading the comments to the article...they are just looking to spam backlinks...screw 'em...complaining you can only submit 3 articles per day at Buzzle...1000 per year to one site...screw 'em...
Actually HubPages doesn't hide this fact. Paul Deeds said right out in the fourms, the individual Hub threshold for no-follow links is 40, and if your Author Score falls below 75, that will trigger all your links on all Hubs to become no-follow.
That's how they minimize the traffic and earnings for poor quality Hubs.
If your scores are really that low, I suggest you read the site FAQ and find out what you're doing here that's not working. Because they make it clear what they are looking for in terms of content and behavior, and what's going to mess you up.
I just wonder - why if you have a bad experience or a not-so-good experience or an experience that is below your expectations in a site such as Hubpages you immediately classify that site as a scam????

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is...
