    If the HubScore is over 40 and your HubberScore is over 75 they are followed links.

    To dig deeper you need to look at the source code.

    This question reminded me to go look up 'follow' and 'nofollow' linking. I was relieved to see it didn't mean what I thought it did. I thought if you didn't have a high enough score, nobody could click on your link and it wouldn't show up right on others' computers.

    it gets an annoying but a handy tool for seeing nofollow/dofollow links is called SEO for firefox - it will highlight all dofollows in red

    you do have to register and will get some emails and upsells from the creator, but there are some handy tools and references there, so its worthwhile

    nofollow/dofollow originally refer to whether a link passes google juice or not - for basic purposes just consider dofollow a backlink for google (the other engines give little or no preference to the code) … ng-Lexicon

      Great advice, thanks. I hadn't heard of this before either.  I thought I was covered with Google Analytics but I'll have to try this.

    A no follow link tells searches engines that the link should not be influenced in the site ranking. If you post a no follow link on a high pagerank site, it won't make your pagerank higher.

    The Firefox SearchStatus plugin is also free, and I don't think you even need to register it, and it will highlight nofollow links as well.

    the nofollow highlighting is a bit of a novelty - the real meat of the add-on is the ability to see detailed stats in your search results including PR, yahoo position, number of pagelinks, domain age ...the list goes on
