Is there a benefit to having a high number at the lower right corner of my picture?
Hi hubbers, I'm new here and noticed a number (46) on my profile picture. I think I started with 0. I read the FAQ which said that the more articles I write, the higher the number. But what's the point of having a high number?
There is zero point in having a high number. No one even knows for sure how they calculate it. Don't worry about the number. It will continue to go up as you are here. Sometimes it will go back down for no apparent reason. It's just a number to confuse us all!
Truthfully, from my opinion:
I think the number is worth worrying about if it's below a 70 because if your AuthorScore is below a 70 your links become nofollow -- which leads to lower traffic, and little or no profits. Google Adsense tends to take notice if HubPages has put a nofollow on links in your hub so it can affect approval from what I've seen.
The score fluctuates, and that's fine.. but I think to have a score below 70 puts you in a bad spot with ads/backlinks/revenue.
Just so you don't worry either, links do not become a nofollow below 70. I have 3 accounts, the other 2 were under 70 for a while and still got plenty of google traffic.
peeples: so once your links are "follow", they won't become "nofollow" even if you drop below 70?
Hubs and links can become inactive at any time though with my 3 accounts I have seen no correlation between hub score and google traffic.
They don't? Well, I read otherwise about it. And it's actually 75 is the no-follow benchmark.
Hubpage staff has confirmed this so I am correct in my statement: http://hubpages.com/_punbb/forum/post/13688 -- Source from a staff member.
I must be lucky then because I have a 66 on one of my other profiles and am doing just fine. I only log in once a month, put a hub up and have no non indexed hubs and google traffic is steady. That post was 5yrs old, change maybe?
Definitely lucky. I just googled that so not sure if I could find something more recent -- but I do know when I was new and posting I was being told that and it did affect my Google Adsense app because when I was over that benchmark, I was okay.
The number repersents your activity in the hub community which lets your readers know you are not just some spammer looking for cheap links!

What does the number is the lower right corner of the profile picture mean?And, how is the score on hubs determined?

In light of the latest Hubpages blog post, can I safely assume that any non-sales hubs would benefit from the removal of Amazon capsules altogether?These are capsules which likely earn me next to nothing for 10 months of the year. Also, how does Google determine what an affiliate link is? What...

Hey Veterans,I am curious. Recently Google made changes and many people are or have lost a lot of traffic, and I am wondering if the problem is too many internal links.I only ask because since Google's change, I have lost a significant amount of traffic, however many of my hubs are linked...

I understand the editing process, quality control and for articles not to appear "spammy" My article was about slat chlorine generators and a sentence in there about testing salinity levels in the water. "This can be done by using a salt test meter or salt test strips" I...

Can having too many links for the same domain on a hub affect your number of view?One of my hubs was getting good number of views, but it drop and thats when I notice a warning sign saying I had more than two links on the same domain.

For the new QAP being so stringent at eradicating spam from hubs, it evidently has no rules for outside and around the content of our pages.Not counting 3 Amazon ads I placed in the hub myself, I count no less than 19 unrelated ads around my article on "How to Cure a Stiff Neck".(jump to...
