How important is Hub Karma?
I use the suggest links tool to add links within my work to other peoples hubs... ie... hub karma... but lately I have been plagued by broken links when others have taken down hubs and in one case deleted all of their hubs.... how important is hubkarma? I am just wondering if I should not bother?
I've been wondering the same thing. Does it help your own hubs and traffic to link to other hubbers' related hubs? I"d like to know....Great question, dave.....
I have had a hub a day with broken links and am getting tired of that. I am going to try one without them and see if it makes a big difference.
Well in terms of linking to your fellow hubbers hubs, I have only done it a few times & haven't had any trouble at all with the links so far. I do know that you don't need to create such relevant links because the hubpages system already does such a thing for you.
This is why I don't place emphasis in doing such to much, unless I write a hub that's been a direct inspiration from the persons hub I once read. Then I feel the need to credit that particular hubber for such, that my hub was a result of theirs being such an inspiration to me. Hopefully that helps a bit in answering about the hub Karma thingy you mentioned.
If your worried about your Hub Score it is very important however if you create links to other hub articles to improve your hubs and spread good will and truly believe in Karma what difference does it make.
Doing the right thing can never be a bad thing, a lot of truly talented writers are being turned off by the Hub Page Nazi's and their moderator boot lickers, and going elsewhere.
Censorship is a bad idea, that is why hubs are being deleted and good writers are moving on.

Hello hubbers. I have three related hubs, parts 1 to 3. Part 3 is the one getting most of the traffic. Part 2 hardly get's any at all even though they are linked. The word count when combined would be 2873 but given that it's a travel hub with lots of info I was wondering if I should just combine...

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via "embedded" links(anchored text) have not been coming up or being flagged as...

This is a great feature HP has...flagging Hubs where links within those Hubs are broken.However, just in the last 20 minutes, four of my Hubs showed on My Account page as having broken links. Only one did. (As in, there was no yellow text when looking at those Hubs in edit mode, for three of...

I just found a (!) warning on one of my Hubs, due to two broken links to my own Hubs. Clicking on the links led to 404 error pages. But the pages the links were supposed to go to still exist, and are still published and featured. It seems the links should have been good.I went into the Hub and...

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If it is re-submitted and is not fixed properly you could be banned from...
