    In my Hubs all links are Do-follow but when I started this community all links are no-follow.

    how do you see do follow and no follow... i am not aware...

    1. earnestshub profile image87
      earnestshubposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      You don't see them, but the figures above denote what is follow/no follow on hubpages. You need to have a profile score of 75 and hubs need to be 40 or above to be followed.

      Kmadhavposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      There is many tools like seo quake and searchstatus they tell that link is do-follow or no-follow.

      Or simply right click on link and in properties it shows no-follow or do-follow

      Down load firefox addon "nodofollow"
      right click
      press the nodofollow on the option
      if the given link in page is do follow it will appear in blue

    click the report button under his post people.  Quickest way to get people bounced. 

    HubPages staff's telepathy to pick up our grumbles is notoriously unreliable, so they have a neat REPORT button on each post...  Use it and don't feed people's ego's by interacting with them.

    Sorry I did not understand.. are hubs and people marked with flag "Do Follow" an "No follow" ?

    1. earnestshub profile image87
      earnestshubposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Yes hubchief, you need to have a reasonable score to be followed, so hubpages sets a bottom score limit. 40 for a hub and 75 for your hubber score shown on your profile.

        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.

      2. Joyce F profile image61
        Joyce Fposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        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?

        Thanks in advance for your response.

          Susana Sposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          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.

      Don't think on this feature in starting Just do your best work and stay rest on google and hub pages sure you will get best out of this.

    Seo Quake has an option for displaying strike throughs on no follow links, it is avialable on firefox and chrome.

    so whats the quickest way to up your score? and if an individual hub is scoring a 50 but a hubber is a newcomer and only is like a 50 overall...are the links still no follow?

  11. DIYweddingplanner profile image91
    DIYweddingplannerposted 7 years ago

    Well, I hate to be contoversial, but I checked my hubs and plenty who were in the 80's for hubscore had a no-follow attached and my author score stays in the 90's.

  12. flode profile image59
    flodeposted 7 years ago

    I'm interested in this topic as well. What is the best way to boost your hub score to get do follow links? I've worked hard on y articles but what else should I do?

  13. mdlawyer profile image38
    mdlawyerposted 7 years ago

    1) You need to adhere to the TOS and content policies of Hubpages.

    2) Continue to write and publish quality, original contents.

    3) Regularly read and comment on the hubs of a manageable group among the hubbers you follow.  Better follow on a regular basis same hubbers, rather than at random.

    4) Participate in the forum discussions and help the new hubbers by answering to their queries and concerns.

  14. mdlawyer profile image38
    mdlawyerposted 7 years ago

    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.

  15. mdlawyer profile image38
    mdlawyerposted 7 years ago

    For improving the hub score, in addition  to the aforementioned aspects, you need to have good SEO to generate organic search.

    Great info here about hubscores,  I was confused about if both scores were required. Appreciate the answer.

    Still wondering about the op Kmadhav it says he has a hubber score of 10 but he says his links ar do follow now?

    How long does it take to get 75 author score so my links become dofollow. I am probably being a bit impatient as I have only been on hubpages about 9 days and have only two hubs.

    Any advice how to boost my score or is it just a matter of writing quality hubs (if so how many before I get 75?)

    Thanks for the help

  20. tradingideas profile image57
    tradingideasposted 6 years ago

    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!

      WryLiltposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      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.

  21. psycheskinner profile image82
    psycheskinnerposted 6 years ago

    It is not difficult, it just takes a few more hubs and a few weeks.

    1. tradingideas profile image57
      tradingideasposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      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

    1. WryLilt profile image91
      WryLiltposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Hubscore only needs to be above 40.

    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?

    1. LeanMan profile image86
      LeanManposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Requirement is now 85 for your hubber score to get do-follow links
