I made what I now consider a mistake using this when it was brought out but have since begun the long task of unlinking suggested links. I find that every time I look at my account statistics there are a bunch of alerts for links that are no longer working and that I have to go an remove! If they hadn't been added in the first place I wouldn't be having this problem now!
Use that hub karma thing to link your own hubs since you have control over your own hubs.
I am about to be asking about HubKarma, and what it is for. It's my first time here in HP and I liked the experience so far. Thank you for your very informative thread.
True. There are a lot of people removing hubs or having them unpublished/moderated meaning the links go to empty space.
Plus, using the link suggestion tool means there's more chance of someone going and clicking another person's adverts and not yours.
I am glad I used the linking tool sparingly and the few links outside that are redundant now have been fixed.. but for those that are hung on to hub karma I guess it must be a bother.
I too have fought that battle. My frustration with HP is going down a road such as this one and then doing a U-turn. I work hard at this and I am constantly fixing.
I still have a number of Hubs to fix and bring up to the new HP standards. I like the new quality standards but oh, my, I am simply tired.
Yes, you can link your own hubs. Hub Karma suggests links top other hubs most of the time and often with very vague similarity to the subject. It is supposed to help increase hubscore which is why I used it but have found it is of more trouble than it's worth. Each to his or her own though!
I have no idea what this Hub Karma is all about but my number keeps climbing. So What?

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' feature--apparently this is not the same? It most often DOES provide a link to...

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...

I have started hubbing recently and want to know what actually hubkarma does . If I link someone else's hub from my own hub will they know it and link back to mine? how can linking to other's hubs be beneficial to me? I also want to find out if your hub karma score can make your hubs appear on the...

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

Hi there,I've been hearing discussions that noindexing hubs (because they are idled) impacts their backlinks in some way, and I'd like to find out if this is true.I've been researching this a bit online and have found the following:- According to the Google Webmaster forum, Google *does* count...
