I have always had hub scores in the range mentioned above. How do I improve my hub score?
All suggestions and help will be appreciated. Thanks!
How did your article on Kuwait history and culture score? That article seems to have everything an article needs for a good score. I would change the word "It's" to "Its" but that should not be a big deal score wise.
Thank you for the kind comment Robert. It has a score of 63.
I get confused sometimes between It's and Its, have to edit that. ☺
You're welcome, "it's" is a contraction for "it is". The possessive for "it" is "its". A 63 seems to be a low score for the article. The article seems to have everything a high scoring article should have. From the feedback it seems the traffic on the article is good.
The best advice I can give is - ignore the HubScores and the HubberScore.
Many Hubbers make the mistake of thinking the scores are a reflection of the quality of their writing. It's not as simple as that!
This blog post explains in more detail:
http://blog.hubpages.com/2015/02/26/an- … -hubscore/
Notice that although they talk about quality being important, it's not just quality as assessed by the QAP team. Quality is also judged by "reader consumption and interaction with the Hub". Which means the number of people visiting the Hub and commenting on it. Obviously new Hubs won't have many visitors yet so they will always have a lower score.
One thing that always concerns me is that you'll notice HubberScore affects individual HubScores. But also, your HubberScore is made up of an average of your HubScores. So you can see there's a circular reference there which, in my view, makes scores a headache that are better ignored!
You can boost your HubScores and HubberScore by being very active on the forums, on Q&A, and reading and commenting on other people's Hubs. However bear in mind that all those things are time-consuming, and because they are all internal to HubPages, they are doing absolutely nothing to build your income. Your income comes from external traffic so if you want to improve your earnings, that's where your focus should be, even if it means your scores stay low.
I am so glad to hear this from you. I was on belief that hub score is something that determines the Quality of my article and i was thinking that i should score 90 above . Happy to hear hub score have no importance :-)
Thank you so much for your advice and valuable feedback Marisa! ☺ I get it now.
As Marisa said, ignore the hub score.
Its main purpose is to stop spammers, mainly by making any links to external sites have less value to search engines (by making them no follow).
Very well put by Marisa.
I would suggest the same. Forget about the hub score. Just concentrate on your writing.
If the scores are supposed to be ignored, they wouldn't exist. I don't think you should ignore them.
The scores are a reflection of quality. Unfortunately, there are also other factors that affect the score that have nothing to do with quality, such as how much time you spend on HubPages, writing comments, etc.
Someone who has a score in the 20s writes lower quality hubs than someone who has a score in the 80s.
I would recommend using the scores to try to improve the quality of your writing, but do not focus on them exclusively. Do the best you can, and don't panic or worry if your best does not get you 100.. People rarely get 100, and when they do, they don't have it for long!
If my score went below 75, I would worry that something is terribly wrong.
If you write quality content, you should ignore the scores.
If you write spam, you should pay a lot of attention to the scores.
If you are brand new and your score is below 75, you shouldn't worry because it is perfectly normal for a newbie.
I am sure they were intended to be helpful when the system was designed. But the fact is that they simply are not helpful, and we have access to actually useful metrics (like traffic and earnings) to use instead.
Thank you for your advice Millionaire Tips. ☺

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...
