      I think you will find it is about the quality of your hubs. As far as I can tell, there is more text in the Amazon capsules than there is in the hubs.

      And - no offense - but what is written is not very good quality - either the English or the content.

      I would go back and do some more work improving the English and adding some more relevant content - I would also cut down on the amount of irrelevant junk in the Amazon capsules.

          I think you missed what I said.

          Do your hubs have more text in the Amazon capsules than the hub itself?

            Darkside, what you don't quite get is that some people like me come to the forum and we don't live here. Some of your comments are so sarcastic that if I were a newby and didn't know that hubpages and squidoo forums are filled with sarcastic self proclaimed forum police, I might just not come back:)) Just take it in good fun, I know you mean well.

      No, it's not like that. Spend a few hours and read the contents of the following link carefully: http://hubpages.com/faq/

  4. Everyday Miracles profile image93
    Everyday Miraclesposted 7 years ago

    I think that what Mark is trying to say is that the majority of the content on your page (including ads, images, and video) should be content-related. I am not entirely sure whether or not I am entirely correct, but I don't believe that links, RSS and News capsules hurt your score because they are additional text that Google can spider.

    Provided that hubber score is related to hub score, you need to make your hubs of the highest quality so that you will get a "thumbs up" rather than a "thumbs down" on your hubs. Traffic isn't *everything* and posting all over the forums the way that you do is going to falsely boost your traffic. If you have Google Analytics, check in to see how *long* people are staying on your pages. If they are clicking right off of your pages, then you're doing something wrong.

          OK, you need to do a couple of things.

          1. From now on stop becoming a fan of everybody. For a month don't fan anybody. Then be very selective whose fan you are becoming and do it really slow, like no more than 5 fan clubs a day.

          2. Exit 90% of fan clubs you are in now. Go to my account->hubber fan clubs, and start exiting from the bottom of the list. Get it down to 200-300.

          3. Watch your hubscore skyrocket big_smile

            i didn't think about that it will decrease my hubscore so badly,

            thank you misha,

            you were one of the best helper & hubber.

      Shreekrishna, I have keenly looked at your profile, and I am sorry.

      I have gone through your hubs and they have a lot of good information. Your hubscore should not worry you much as the score keeps on flactuating up and down.

      Just keep on trying.

    Hey EM, how does Google Analytics work?

    1. Everyday Miracles profile image93
      Everyday Miraclesposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I don't have it all figured out yet. I prefer AWStats, which I have on my domain. I only use Analtyics here for Hubpages.

      What I love about it though is that I can tie Adsense to Analytics which allows me to determine not only which HUBS are earning but which keywords are earning for me. That was awesome when I first discovered that. And yes, I'm about to be thirty -- I am still hooked on awesomeness from the nineties. Sorry!

      If you create an account, you will be able to track how long your visitors are staying with one of the many reports that they will give you about your traffic. You can see where people came from, where they live, and the sites they are exiting to as well.

    What are you doing to promote your Hubs? people don't just come along...good tags will help but so does promotion and a good article. smile hope that helps.

  8. Everyday Miracles profile image93
    Everyday Miraclesposted 7 years ago

    I've been trying not to say anything because it's hard to jump into the fray when you're prefer to be kind. And sometimes all of us have difficulty being kind.

    Your hubs are reasonably good. The English could, of course, use some work but it's passable. Your layouts are okay and don't lean too far towards the advertising. Hub scores are on the low side which either indicates downrating or lack of traffic to your hubs (in general).

    The problem is that you're spamming the forums. Spam has more than one meaning. Advertising is one (annoying) thing, but there is another form of spam, and you're doing it.

    The truth is that nobody here cares if you have 200 posts or 20000. People do, however, care about the quality of the posts that you make on the forum. Posting here simply for the sake of increasing your post count is considered spam. It annoys the members of hubpages who might otherwise enjoy reading your hubs. And it could (not saying it *is*) result in some hubbers downrating your hubs.

    Remember that your Hubberscore is a reflection of who you are as part of the Hubpages community. More positive interaction you put into the community (hopefully) the higher your Hubberscore will be.

    You also have to write hubs that will interest the search engines. If they don't see your hubs then your traffic will not increase outside of HubPages.

      Everyday Miraclesposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I don't even think I turned off my notices for this and still don't pay any attention whatsoever. Every now and again I'll dig through my fans and make some visits though. Otherwise I'm going to miss some great content!

      If becoming a fan of someone increases hub score I think that should be changed. I am not a fan of a lot of people and am at 99 right now, so I don't think that's the case!

    If you're leaving the fanclubs of people who aren't *your* fan, then you're fanning for the wrong reason. Join the fan clubs of those writers who's hubs you enjoy.

    I don't have a big list of people of whom I am a fan. I don't base my fandom off those who are fans of mine. I didn't sign up for Uninvited Writer's updates until two days ago and she's been on my list for a while. I was a fan of Tonymac before he joined my fan club. I don't always look at who's in mine, either, so it's hard to keep track, but if I like the work of a writer I sign up for their updates and *almost* always read their new hubs, even if I don't comment.

    You crack me up!! ( make me laugh) in a nice way of course.

    Im glad there are people like you that help make Hubpages less serious ,less clicky maybe.

    I enjoy so much the versatality of information scattered throughout thes Hubpages and its such fun to feel certain personalities almost jump right off the pages ( specially in Forums).

    I have noticed that some writers seem to have a higher status ,some based on talent and or just more popular.

    Interesting that having too many fans would effect anything.

    Janettaposted 7 years ago

    I think it all goes back to the whole spamming aspect like Everyday Miracles said. If you spend all your time posting nonsense on threads just to get a certain number of posts and fan everyone for no other reason then to hopefully solicit a fan for yourself is spamming in a way. When that is basically the only way you are contributing to HP-you really are kind of spamming. Fanning someone every two seconds and going down the new hubber lists becoming everyone's fan the second they come on is not going to help your score at all.

  19. Everyday Miracles profile image93
    Everyday Miraclesposted 7 years ago

    I like shreekrisha. I like everybody, actually, even those who grate on me (intentionally). But when somebody fans me, I hope it's because they like my work (even more than they like me, as a person) and not because they are looking for reciprocation. I don't have the time to make everybody on here a fan.

    Eaglekiwi, I hadn't really noticed any clique-y behavior around here, but I haven't been here very long. I know that there is some divisiveness in the religion forums, but like many I prefer to ignore it smile

    badcompany99posted 7 years ago

    I like shreekrisha as well but no offence if you followed her hubtivity she must have added every single person on hubpages. For me an add like that is worthless and I actually removed her from my fans because of that. Ok may sound mean but I am being honest I dont need people like that, that is not a true fan of your work, that is a compulsive adder and as for her posting on the forums it was a total joke. Personally I dont need people like that and sorry if you are reading this shreekrisha but in my opinion you are totally fake and please if you do come back don't add me !
