    Something I find odd indeed about my Hub Karma score,which I know is trivial but feel jilted all the same.

    Hub Pages says that Hub Karma is based on how often you link to the site and to other's Hubs. My latest Hub includes 2 links back to the site and 10 (yes 10) links to peoples Hubs including showcasing their names as author by the links and my HUb Karma went down.

    So much for linking to other people's hubs and the site for raising your Hub Karma perhaps it is based on a secret formula only known to the Hub Karma gods!

    And yes I realize I spelled Karma wrong,lol.

      Benjamin B This is what the FAQ says

      Hub karma helps Hubpages and the traffic that comes to remain within hubpages.. it is not concerned with your links outside..

      HubKarma is a score that reflects the degree to which you link to others' Hubs and to Topic pages in your own Hubs. Hubs that point to other relevant, high quality Hubs enhance readers' experience on HubPages and improve HubPages credibility as a trusted resource.

        Exactly my point the 10 links I speak of go to high ranked Hubs by high ranked Hubbers sofs. You just repeated what I had stated I had done.

        Sofs if you read what I posted and what you just posted you just strengthened my argument for wy it is odd my Hub Karma dropped as all of the links on the Hub I created lead to high scored hubs by high rate hubbers.

    That actually sounds like too many links in one article.

      In my opinion Uninvited it would be too many if not pertinent to the topic at hand,however the Hub in question was one meant to encourage new Hubbers and highlight relevant hubs that were helpful to me in learning this Hub Pages process and overall online marketing skills.

    I'm really not sure about the Hub Karma feature.  I've been on a publishing spree and haven't taken the time to use the Hub Karma feature and spread some link love in about 2 months.  My Hub Karma hasn't wavered at all even though I have about 60 new hubs and very few links to other hubs and topics.  So who knows why.

      Another secret of the Hub Pages that we will never know Benji ,lol. I just wanted to see some peoples thoughts on it, personally I believe many of the scoring mysteries here on Hub Pages discourage people from doing what they claim they would like you to do.

      From this point forward I can't help but feel it may be in my best interest to do the complete opposite and never include any links to anyone's work or the site ever again.

      In other words I'm taking my link loving Hub Karma ball and going home ,lol.

      Hey by the way congrats on the 100 Hubber score Benji , don't know if you've been there before just happened to notice you are now!

    Is it true? Can I link to too many hubbers' pages using the link tool? They're all relevant, but my score started at 49 and hasn't moved, and I've used HP links in every article I have here. How much linking will raise my Karma score?

      It's a mystery Sandy,that also depends on people linking to your hubs as well. Don't worry about it would be my suggestion. Spread the love if you feel the need or just do like I have started to do and quit including links.

      I imagine I would include links again in the future if it's to someones related material that I have an appreciation for,but in the niche I've targeted lately I've just not been impressed with the options available.

      At one point my karma score was 97 and despite adding more links it has steadily dropped to 77,so like I say above there is no rhyme or reason.
