When I first joined up to Hubpages my Hub Karma score went shooting up. After the first week it had reached 81. Since then though it has not moved. I have continued to link articles and so I don't see why it has got stuck on 81.
Is there any real purpose behind the Hub Karma, does it have any effect on anything else. Should I just ignore it and not worry?
Thanks to All of you! In tne 'start a new hub' I am not sure asbout the webpage that I am suppose to put it. The title to my Hub is going to be "Never Say" In tne webpage section put http://www.hubpages.com/neversay. It told me to not use forward slashes. I am new to all of this soooo! If I can be mentored threough the 1st one I think that I will be O.K.!
Marymac47, your hub cannot be published with that URL, because it is incorrect for HubPages. I suggest that you simply type in a title for your hub, then the URL will be automatically generated for you. If you have further questions, please post a new topic in the Help forum.
HubKarma is the most confusing number at HubPages really. We understand roughly how HubScore and HubberScore work but HubKarma is just.. a number. It has to do with the amount of linking you do to other hubs, that's what is publicly known. It also influences your personal HubberScore here at HubPages.
Mine went from 89 to 90 the other day after being on 89 for weeks.
I do use the tool, but only on the basis, (possibly misguided) that I was under the impression that if you link to another hubber's hub, and someone goes there as a result of clicking on your hub's link, then clicks on an advert, you as the referring hubber get a percentage of the revenue:
"3.Traffic Referral Program: If you send traffic to any Hub, you’re entitled to either 9% or 12% of total impressions. You’ll receive 9% if the Hub you’ve referred people to already has impressions allocated to an Affiliate. If there are no Affiliates, you’ll receive 12% of the total impressions.
Whatever is left from the splits above goes to HubPages. Note that these splits apply only to Hubs and User Profile pages. On all other pages, such as a referral to a Tag page or the HubPages home page, you’ll receive 30% on a traffic referral, with HubPages getting the rest."
I am sure someone else can jump in here and clarify this better than I can.
Oh Crikey, you are kidding. That would take me ages to do, and to be honest I still don't quite 'get' the whole tracker thing and how to do it, in spite of having read a number of hubs on the subject. Surely they can find a way for this to happen automatically!!
Hi-A couple of (unrelated??) questions today... 1) I was reading the Hub Karma section, and notice it emphasies 'links to other's hubs' as a major factor. Lately, I've been using the 'suggest links'...
