My Hubscore, Search Question and Blogging

    Hi Everyone!

    I just noticed my hubscore jumped to 90 over night! I only have 4 hubs? I'm still a bit confused about how this all works. I've looked at MANY hubs the last few days about how to raise hubscores, what they are and etc etc, and from what I understand its a culmination of what you write about, how many thumbs up/down you get, your hub activity and.... a random something?

    Will my hubscore drop when I add a hub today?

    And another, I read that links are No Search if the hubscore is below 75, now that I am 90, does that mean people can search me?

    My last question is, if in my blog I link back to people's hubs, would that cause duplicate content for that hub person? There are some awesome hubs out there that I want to write about and link to (obviously not copy content but talk about the topic) I don't want to cause any hubbers any problems!

    Thank you so much and I've really enjoyed reading everyone's hubs as of late!

      If you write quality content, your score will probably stay steady.  I wouldn't worry too much about it.  After awhile, you will find out what works for you and find a good balance.

      I think you might be referring to no follow, which I'm only know a little bit about.  If any links you leave have no follow attached to them, then you don't get backlinks (someone else needs to explain this better because I'm sure I'm butchering it).

      As long as you do not copy content, you won't be creating duplicate content.  We all love having our stuff linked from other hubs and blogs - so please do.

      -The amout of Hubs doesn't matter.


      -Some drop, I personally find that it adds a +1 to my Hubscore for a few hours.

      -Not sure about this, never got below 75 since start..All Hubs I know are search able.

      -As long as you write it and it isn't copied from theres, then no.

      -Write about them and link to them, you will never cause a Hubber a problem by suppling them with some more traffic smile

      -Your Welcome smile Hope this helps

      To answer a few questions , when I publish a new hub I have never seen my hub score actually drop and if it has , it rose rather quickly.
      I have never heard of someone not searching if your hubscore is below 75, I seem to still have others read my articles when they are below 75.
      Linking back to someone's hub will not cause duplicate content unless you copy there exact material onto your blog, which is plagarism and the price that could cost you is priceless. Do what you do best and keep on hubbing, as the score will go away and down so don't worry to much about the score, focus on the content and your articles, fans will come and scores will be consistent and continue to rise. smile

    Stacie is correct - the "no follow" attribute does not stop your Hub showing up in searches. It just stops spiders from following the links on your Hub.

    The effect of this is that "no follow"ed links on Hubs don't "count" in getting Page Rank for the site the link points TO.

    It has no effect on your Hub itself.

    IMHO, don't bother about your Hubscore. If you keep on publishing quality hubs, people out here will like you and actively participate on your hubs. I at least don't read/judge hubs based on it's score. I just read it and if it appeals to me, I give it thumbs up and probably comment.

    Just my two cents smile

    The score is basically based on the page views. Though you have only 4 hubs but if you are active in the forum and commenting other people hubs, soon the score will increase. There are many hubbers here who only published less than 10 hubs but their hub score is above 90. I also agree that your content must be original because people won't visit your hubs anymore if they are not genuinely yours.

    Of course, HP putting nofollow on low scoring member's HubPages is a smart way for them to cut down on link spammers. It forces you to write valuable content and particpate in the comminity, which increases the vale of the site for all concerned.

      I completely agree! Hubpages has really impressed me the last few days.

      That's it. Participation really counts in HubPages.

    I like the nofollow rule on here - it keeps the quality high and the spammers out.

    participation is cool because you find a lot of really interesting hubs through comments people leave on other hubs
