I just recently joined HubPages to see if it would work out for me and posted my very first Hub. I was eager to see if my writing would meet HubPages reportedly high quality standards, and as it turns out, it was with a Hub Score of 78.
I'm not complaining, since as far as I can tell a 78 is a good score for a first post, but I'm trying to shoot for somewhere in the mid-80s. Looking at the only post I have up right now in my profile, what do you think could use improvement?
A friend of mine told me that it lacked some of my personality and sense of humor, which I admit I toned down a little out of fear of coming off as too goofy to take seriously. Should I try adding more of that or would that be too personalized for HubPages?
It says it's overly promotional, apparently for having too many links. When that happened before, I got an indication while I was editing, not after the fact.
Check out the learning centre, FAQ and other people's hubs to learn how to create a great hub.
Overly promotional usually means more than two links to one external site, or solely promoting something you have an interest in or a teaser leading to another site.

Despite the fact that my traffic in that time span is up from 500 views a day to 5400 views a day. Wtf? Apparently hubber score is useless. Oh and my average hub score is up in that same span of time too.
