    No Follow Below 85

    I know that your links become "nofollow" after your score drops below 85, but does that make a significant change to anyones earnings? I have been hovering at 84 for weeks and try as I might, I cant get over 85, and I am just wondering if its worth all the effort I am putting in to get my score over 85

    I am going to answer your question with another question because I'm confused.  What does "nofollow" mean?  Sorry; new here.  *waves sheepishly*  Sorry I'm not actually answering your question.  Hopefully there will be someone who knows better than I!

      Links are either "dofollow," or "nofollow."  You want your hubpages articles to all be "dofollow."  Dofollow links carry more weight with search engines.

    When your hubs are below 85 or your hub-score? Never heard of this before

    If you are talking about not following another hubber who's score is less than 85 then it's anyone's loss who does such a thing. That score is an obsolete rating and the hub page staff that's left needs to do away with this type of garbage. We are losing hubbers everyday on the hub pages and this score isn't helping one little bit.

    I'm not a newbie and am confused. I have a ton of hubs with a score under 85 that get tons of views from Google. It would be my confused opinion that if they are nofollow when under 85 I wouldn't have a hub with a score of  getting hundreds of Google views a week. Now if you are talking hubber score instead of hub score, I would also be confused because I get thousands of views a week and my score was 84 until yesterday. It just seems if I was nofollow that wouldn't happen. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can step in and clear this up for all of us.

    Kathleen - Your Hubber Score is 98 right now, so you are fine for dofollow links. It's the Hubber Score and not the individual Hub Score that, when lowered below 85, is the problem - Or did your Hubber Score just rise from 84 to 98 quickly? smile Just for reference, from another thread:

    "A HubberScore below 85 means that your links will be nofollow."

    Thank you Patty! I have seen so many posts about profile score vs hubber score vs average hub score and honestly it still baffled me because everyone was saying different things. Now I finally get it! Thank you!
