I have some questions.
What is the score given to our articles, and do they matter? Also, the score aggregate of our articles obviously falls every time we write a new articles. Is that important?
Next, what is the difference between a page that is commercial and a page that is non commercial? Do they get higher ranking? Does that mean Adsense still works on them? Or does it mean that one is now allowed to have amazon or ebay on them?
Also, I don't get the follow and no follow links. If I provide a link, people still click on them. To me, that is the entire idea. Why does it matter if they are no follow. If the links are no follow, and my article is still on the first page of google, why am I concerned that it has a no follow link pointing to it?
Hey, I will keep the answers simple.
Article score doesn't affect your search engine rankings, it just is a score Hubpages assigns based on certain (unknown) factors.
The main difference between commercial and non-commercial is that you can take adsense off hubs that are non-commercial. Commercial hubs are required to include Adsense.
A no follow link is a link that has rel="nofollow" attached to it. This relationship attribute tells search engines NOT to follow it, so the link will not pass on any value to a site it links to.
Having a no follow link is NOT a bad thing, it is just preferable to have a dofollow link.
To take what Oli said one step further...
There are two reasons you might want backlinks: possible traffic and SEO juice, for lack of a better word. A DoFollow backlink gives the opportunity for both, while a NoFollow backlink may give you traffic but no SEO juice.
Okay, thanks. If it is a follow link, what sort of value does the search engine attribute to it?
Think of a do-follow link as a 'vote' for your site. The more votes you have the more popular Google thinks your site is, and the higher it will rank.
Also remember that different sites have a more powerful 'vote value' which ranks your site even higher.
If your site gets a lot of high quality votes for the words 'fix tv' for instance, and your site contains a lot of non spam information on the words 'fix tv' you will probably rank well.

I know it fluctuates depending on a billion variables...but for you hubbers here who are making decent money, how many backlinks do you create for each hub. Please specify between social bookmarkting, article marketing on directories like ezine, blogging and commenting on blogs.Thanks!

Is there any value in linking to your own hubs within OTHER hubs and your profile page, in terms of search engine page ranking? Any advantage at all? I've seen a lot of people do this.If this is a silly question, please forgive me; I'm still relatively new here. Thanks.

I'm about to sign up for some social bookmarking sites, and am wondering if it matters if they are all in my name, if it might be easier to use facebook signin for many of them, or if is somehow better to use different names and such if I'm only using them for backlinking purposes,Also, if you are...
