I know this new Hub needs work, and it only scored a 70. I would love advice...

The title is "WHy I Hate Windows 8" so I don't know why it has that address. Maybe I had clicked a link to start an exclusive title way back when I was thinking about what to write? But I never even started that one...I have no idea. Don't think that is good though.
Thanks for any help!
"we took a filed trip back to its store."
Personal opinion only, but you aren't pushing or even talking about computers in general - the amazon capsule selling computers isn't going to accomplish anything. Get rid of it.
A few more photos would help - maybe screen shots of particular things like the start screen you hate. Or the popup charm menu.
Again, personal opinion, but I would either make that first photo full width at the very top or drop it to the next text capsule. Get the ad in the top right space, in other words. If you put it on top, make it a "made for Pinterest" photo (legally!) and post a link on Pinterest. See hubs from Wrylilt for information on this.
I liked the general layout and found it useful and informative for people wondering about windows 8.
Thanks for the good information. I have removed the Microsoft image and will replace it with a screen shot.
You made alot of great points, be sure to back up your statements with industry stuff out there that supports your claims.
Windows 8: The Animated Evaluation
has alot of what you say and expresses the same frustration, adding it to your hub will increase the value of your statements and makes the reader more confident in your review
Quote stats and data from industry magazines
like this one: Computer World

It helps to make that simple article into a rich article that has great points, video, and research data!
Maybe you had already made changes when I read this hub, but I liked it----and glad to have this information so I won't decide to try Windows 8!
You are so right about the "under 30" generation and the new gimmicks. Maybe, too, some of their enjoyment of products we have difficulty with is that they do more "playing" while much of our computer use is work-related....
You have gotten some good information here, and critiques are very valuable. However, ultimately, don't worry too much about hub scores. Hub scores rise and fall seemingly arbitrarily. If you get inspired and write a hub very quickly, it will publish with a low score. If you write a hub slowly over several days or weeks, by the time you publish it, the score will be much higher. Either way, the hubs could be identical but start out with much different scores. As a hub ages, if it gets a good number of views, the score will increase. Scores also increase and decrease over the life of the hub, seemingly at random.
Create nice hubs you are proud of, check out the learning center's suggestions on creating stellar hubs, and then don't worry too much about their scores. In the long run, search engine traffic counts and hubscores aren't much to worry about.

Thank you, Smartandfun! Good advice! That reminded me the reason I decided to write on Hubpages in the first place: to improve my writing skills first, and second to earn a little money. I will focus on the writing rather than the scores. Thanks for commenting and helping me out!
If you don't like Windows 8 then you probably won't like Windows 10 which is now the default Windows on any new computer you buy.

As asked in title. I know it's subjective, but in your opinion, what is the lowest score you would allow an article to remain up before editing or un-publishing it?Understand that I am new here, so putting feelers...

Help! I woke up this morning to find that one of my mid-range performing hubs, "What is Creation, by Definition?" (http://lauraschneider.hubpages.com/hub/What-is-creation) had plummeted to a score of 55. It...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or...

I have one hub that consistently rates high and seems to be a favorite. Recently I added a You Tube video and now the score has plummeted from 96 to 85. Is there a connection? Or just coincidence?Has anyone experienced...

For the first time, on only the second day since it was published, a hub stopped escalating. Last night before I went to bed it was rated 61, it's the same rating today. That can't be good. May I get...

I recently deleted two of my own articles that constantly edged around score 60. I eliminated them in hope that it would bring up my overall hub scores therefore my profile scores, especially they were both duplicates....
