Hubkarma and the Links Tool

    I was reading about the links tool, and I applied a few Hub links to one of my hubs.  Seemed like a cool idea.  The more karma the better, right?  But then I realized that by offering one of those links I'm sending a reader away from my page.  Ummm . . . isn't that an undesirable thing?  I'm all for being nice, but doesn't that hurt me? I get the general idea of it, but it seems to make no sense to send a reader away from my page after they'd only just gotten there.

    What's the smartest way to use the hub links tool, or do you use it at all?

      I think most people ignore the HubKarma and link tools, for the very reason you point out.   As far as I know, HubKarma does not benefit you in any way.  I don't worry about it at all.

    Both of those tools have pretty much been overtaken by events.  Not much use IMHO.
