Hi earnest thanks for the information, I'm also about to ask this question and found your answer, this would be a great help I wonder how can we determine if how many hubber score we have? is it the number beside the title of our article? I'm confused sorry.
I'm confused. Does and individual hub have to have over 40 and the hubbers score be above 75 or one or the other. Say for instance I had a hub of 50 buy my hubber score was 70 would the links be do follow?
No they'd be Nofollow. If your hubber score is under 75 all links will be nofollow, regardless of individual hub scores. If your hubber score is over 75, any of your hubs scoring over 40 will be Dofollow, any under 40 will be NoFollow.
Further, it is an automated system which is not always foolproof. I have found deserving established hubbers hovering around 90 or even below while those who do not have even 10% of their stake nearing 100.
Again, so far as earnings is concerned, you need only 80 or 85 as dofollow starts at 75. It through outside searches through search engines that you make most of the earnings for which a highest hubber score is not essential, but quality content with good SEO is necessary. Conversely, a highest hubber score is no assurance for good earnings.
We should all really gather up & protest this policy, because 75 is a too high threshold for a do-follow link. It's simply unacceptable that we participate, share original content & make them rich while they don't even bother giving us a small recognition for our efforts!
1. Why on earth would you bump a two year old old thread? 2. You can write 5 quality hubs, leave the account alone for two weeks and it'll hit 80. Without interacting on any part of the site. The scores are there JUST to stop spammers and it's REALLY easy to get over 75.
Was at 80 a few weeks back, but they dropped me right below 75 - what i meant WryLilt was that even if you're not a spammer, you still need to put work into more than 2 hubs to get your links "out" - anyways thanks for your replies!
Helpful- still trying to understand all this.... This thread clarified "Hubber score" vs. "hub score"..... I thought it was hub score that had to be above 75, damn! Now I gotta work on that Hubber score lol
I'm not sure if this is true anymore, for example my hubscore is over 75 and my hubs are all over 70 with their individual scores and all the links are still nofollow. So I wonder what the dofollow criteria is now?
Earlier I posted that people should go and make links going to other sites that do not belong to you nofollow. Then someone mentioned that if your hubber score is less than 85 then "every link" will be...
After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers...
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...
I have noticed that all of my hubs that contain affiliate links have now been marked as being in violation of the terms and conditions of hubpages.Hubpages must have forgotten to mention that affiliate links are now...
