I am not an expert by any means, but there are plenty of hubs, questions, and forums about this topic. I am fairly new to HP as well, but I can tell you that you are probably wasting your time worrying about the scores. The scores will be whatever they will be. Check out my profile and you'll see that I have 18 hubs and only four of them are scored above a 69. Yet, my hubscore is 90 (ish) and I am considered popular among fans. I'd like to make a little money on here, but in reality I'm just writing about things that I enjoy and loving (mostly) intelligent conversations and hubs. I ancourage you to check out
