    My hubkarma slightly increased, can anyone tell the importance of hubkarma.

    Will it related hubber score,hub score and pages views of hub?

    Are they useful for search engine rankings?

    Thanks in advance.

      I checked that one but it doesn't answer all of my questions. No answers regarding

      pageviews of hub
      search engine rankings

    I think it does, because I believe that all there is to hubkarma is in there. There is nothing more to it, no more effects than what are described in the FAQ.

    I wondered about that very same question?  Even though I'm not concerned about it:)

    There is no drama,
    to HubKarma,
    unless you’re a farmer,
    of bananas,
    or lama's,
    and your last name is Palmer,
    then you'd find it calmer,
    in the Bahamas,
    creating a diorama,
    and talking to another yarner.

      I would not say so, the amount you link to others directs  traffic  internally (the reader find Hp a ready reference ) and  you could also generate traffic from here to your blogs or websites.
      This may also be a way of getting internal links within hub pages  when  others link to your hubs.

        I agree (although the poem was quite wonderful!) Hubkarma is of little direct importance, but reminds hubbers to do more linking, which may have some positive effects. Linking out can distract attention away from contents, however, which is why some may prefer to use a linking capsule or RSS feed placed either immediately above or even underneath the comments capsule.

    I've been doing some serious linking to other hubs over the past week or two, but my hubkarma score hasn't improved, in fact it's pretty lame. I link using the linking tool (which is great), or if I know of a relevant Hub I just grab the uRL and set up a link in one of my hubs. Does it take a while to see your score change? Thanks!

    I think "importance" is perhaps the wrong word.  It gives you some idea how effective your hubs link to other hubs and outside of Hubpages.  Otherwise, I don't think it's 'important', really smile
