Hi everyone! When checking my hubmetrics, I noticed that several hubs that I know have incoming links from facebook, ezines, etc. often show maybe 2 asterisks when I know they have more. I have established quality links that relate to the hub. If I would have 2 articles relating to a hub on ezines, wouldn't that show up as 2 links? Still trying to understand how it all works.
The incoming asterisks are NOT literal, meaning you don't accrue one for each incoming link.
It's a symbolic representation that runs on a scale of 1-5.
relache, I don't know how many times you've popped up to answer my questions here and I so appreciate your kind attention. But symbolic? Symbolic of what? That sounds so mysterious!
Actual backlinks. If you need more explanation, you might like to read the part from one of my Hubs where I talk about metrics,
Hubmetrics provide a guide line and can be used as thumb rule. Lesser incoming links show 1 or 2 asterisk where as 3 is moderately good. $ is high and 5 is excellent.
It is similar when Hubpages put $ sign that shows income potential.

Feel free to pull these apart or disagree with them, opinion is welcome. I can't help but feel that these features would aid the site:1) A Facebook share column in our stats page. Not for public viewing, but for our own analysis. So, say, next to the total page views column we could have stats on...

HubPages provides statistics on our hubs that include, under "metrics," one or more asterisks indicating "Incoming Links. My question is this: Is there any way we can tell where these links are coming from?

Does anybody have "incoming links" greater than 1 * and if so, how many links do you need?What's the scale used to determine the star rating for incoming links? What did you do to get more incoming links?
