My latest Hub has achieved a score of 96! This is a first, thanks to Margaret Schindel and Marisa Wright for pointing me in the right direction. Without your help, I might still be floundering in deep water. Thank you so much.
Please write a hub (or point me to one) with tips on what you did to achieve this fantastic score. It's been a couple of years since mine have scored that high, regardless of all the blocks being ticked, original photos used, breaking up text blocks, full width first photo, etc.. Of course, there are always those hubbers who tell us that score doesn't count. But if it doesn't count, then why put it out there?
I am definitely no expert but I took a quick look at a couple of your hubs. I did notice was that you are not always using APA Guidelines for your Titles and Headings. I have started using this tool http://capitalizemytitle.com/# and whilst it is not always perfect it has really helped me a lot. I just copy and paste the headings into it and at a click of a button, it corrects them according to the APA guidelines. I also use the free Grammarly download and whilst some people don't advocate it, I know even when I am typing a comment or writing a hub it will give me the option to change my spelling, grammar and punctuation if I have typed something incorrectly. I suspect that traffic to a hub may bring the score up but to most of us it is a mystery and I don't generally take much notice of scores but it was nice to see one high up there even if it has gone down again 2 points today.
I hope so, the sooner they move the better as when hubs are fresh they receive the most traffic and this one was pretty good from the outset so I feel it could have been even better:) I don't like to flip them on Flipboard until they have been moved to the Niche site but perhaps I am being impatient with Thanksgiving hols coming up. Happy Thanksgiving, hope yours is terrific.
Great! Congratulations, Sallybea. You deserve it, isn't it ! I have saved your reply. I'll be using it as a guidance in future. Just one question- Have you downloaded the Free Grammarly or their advanced version?
Wow, what a ride this has been. I have been around Hub Pages for only 29 days and now my Hub Score has reached 100! I just wanted somewhere to put my stuff out for some honest feedback and I get a heaping helping of...
