HubPages Raised Up Required HubScore For DoFollow

January 4, 2014

Damn HubPages raised up the HubScore required to get your links to be DoFollow. Probably happened a while ago, it’s just been that long since I’ve really gone out and done the article marketing bit. Just recently published a new hub on whitelabeled marketing solutions. The hub was ranked high enough to qualify for the DoFollow (was 75 before) but when I checked, sure enough rel=nofollow.

First thinking “What gives?”, then doing some Google work, I found that they raised the requirements up to 85. This kinda sucks, in my opinion. Instead of keeping the hubs focused and pointed, it’s going to turn into generating more content and putting more diverse capsules into the hubs themselves, even if it’s not a great fix.

Sure, more content is generally better, but there’s a point where it can become overkill and can make the content drag on instead of getting to the point. But if it’s for the followed backlink, I guess it has to be done, right?

Going to have to play around with HubPages and try to actually crack their algorithm. This could be done by tweaking / adding/ deleting modules and benchmarking the change over a period of days (scores will vary over time).
