    Just wondering.

    Mine was around 47 when it was first introduced. I then added some links to other hubs and now its risen to 75 in about 3 weeks give or take.

      Mine sits at 93 right now.  I made it a practice to put a links capsule in all my hubs with links to related hubs and it skyrocketed from 27 to 93 in a matter of a couple weeks.

      I also got more active answering questions about the same time.  I'm sure that helps too.

    Mine's 81, and I haven't used the link suggestion tool once.

    I link to my own Hubs, and I have RSS feeds for Hubs written for things like the HubMobs and Challenges.  That's all.

    Mine's 97 and I really don't see the point. My traffic hasn't risen any from it. I thought that was the whole reason behind hub karma? oh well.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image96
      Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      No, it isn't. 

      The purpose of HubKarma is to create more interlinking within HubPages so that readers stay within the site longer.   The longer a reader stays on HubPages, the better it is for HP's reputation with Google, and the more likely they are to click on an ad somewhere along the line.

      HubKarma doesn't give you any direct benefit - it benefits the site as a whole, which gives all of us an indirect benefit.

        However, karma score affects your profile score, so there's that to think about. If it's worth thinking about. I don't think it is.

        If a Hub is relevant to my topic, I will refer to it in some way, as I have from the beginning of my networking on HP, before "HubKarma" became something to strive for.

        This is a somewhat tired topic. Just write good stuff, link to other Hubs if you feel it's appropriate, and look at the suggest links tool as an opportunity to broaden your personal horizons.

        Linking your own Hubs together counts, just as much as linking to other people's Hubs.

  34. humagaia profile image53
    humagaiaposted 8 years ago

    Mine is at 93. It reached this point after 5 days of HubKarma being rolled out and has stayed at this level, without change, for the rest of the time. Nothing I now do seems to make one jot of difference.
    I do not chase numbers but I am pleased that I have some feedback as to my linking strategies to other hubs.
    As anchor text has an impact on Google relevance I think that utilising the suggestions by adding links to hubs that have the search words I am using, in the title of that Hub, has a positive effect on my earning potential, if only small.

    1. EmpressFelicity profile image70
      EmpressFelicityposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      As Empress Felicity, I have a hub karma of 60 which has remained more or less constant for the last few weeks. 

      As Empress Felicity, I (occasionally) help people in the forums, I occasionally comment on other people's hubs and I frequently hit the "Report" button whenever I see spam in the forums.  All of these are activities which should in theory result in increased hub karma.

      And yet I have a second account which is 6 weeks old, has nine hubs to its name, never comments, never reports spam (never comes to the forums in fact), and doesn't even have comments boxes in its hubs.  Its hub karma is only a few points less than Empress Felicity's.

      Really, if any of you are stressing (or even just mildly curious) about "what it all means", then don't bother.  It doesn't mean anything.

      1. camlo profile image88
        camloposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Yes, my other ID is as active on HP as your other ID - just has more Hubs than me (73), and a Hub Karma of 89. So, I thought it could have something to do with the amount of Hubs, although illogical. Anyway, reading your message here, I see it has nothing to do with the amount of Hubs ... I think you're right - it doesn't mean anything.

      2. Marisa Wright profile image96
        Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Felicity, HubKarma relates ONLY to the amount of linking you do to other Hubs, both your own Hubs and other people's Hubs.

        Nothing else counts towards HubKarma - not participating in forums, commenting on Hubs, or reporting.  Those things contribute to your Hubber score and your Accolades.

        Excessive linking can make your Hubs look as though they have blue measles, which is annoying to your reader, so I have yet to see any good reason to chase a high HubKarma score.

        My HK is 80.  I link to my own Hubs a lot, which counts.  For instance, if I write a Hub on belly dance, I'll add an RSS feed to my other belly dance Hubs.  If I join in a HubMob or similar challenge, I'll add an RSS feed to the other Hubs in the challenge.  That's all I do.  I don't use the link suggestion tool at all.

          Interesting, Marisa.
          All of my Hubs are linked either to my own or other people's Hubs, yet my HK is at 48.
          What, precisely, is the source of your information?

          1. Marisa Wright profile image96
            Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            I can only assume it's the quantity of links. 

            As well as linking to my own Hubs within my text, I often add a RSS feed of my related Hubs at the end (which is another 8 links, I suppose).   Thirty of my Hubs - which is a big chunk of my Hubs - have a 60 Day Challenge RSS feed on them as well.

        2. EmpressFelicity profile image70
          EmpressFelicityposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Ah, thanks - I see now!




          Whenever I publish a new hub, I always do an RSS feed to my own hubs as well.  Though having said that, I haven't done it with my older hubs. 

          I don't use the link suggestion tool either, for much the same reasons.

        You're mistaken.  None of those things effect your Hub Karma.  it is solely an evaluation of outgoing links on your Hubs which lead to other locations within HubPages.

        What I find interesting is that I have a lower Hub Karma score than just about everyone who's posted on this thread, and I consistently have an author score that moves between 96 and 100.

    Mine's at 96 or 97.  It fluctuates on its own.  It went up there after I placed links with the link suggestion tool on every hub.  But I only have 20 hubs, so that wasn't hard to do.  I don't know that the hub karma matters, but it's nice to see one number high.
