    I am trying to create hubs of quality, what exacting makes a quality hub?

      Click on that link above that says HUBS, right between Topics and Answers.  Then Click on the link that says BEST.  You will get a look at what quality hubs are.

        i don't agree with this, just because a hub is popular does not make it quality, most of the time it just means the hubber has a lot of friends,fans, and when the hub is published all their fans receive a link for that hub, and if the hub is reasonable most fans will vote on the hub. This does not mean a hub is quality.

        Quality is an article with meaning or a purpose, enjoyable and unique in style.

        I just wish I could write what I perceive as quality. smile

    Great answer, livewithrichard! The only thing I would add to that is, every now and then visit some of the top hubbers (click on Hubbers above and the top scorers are listed first) and see how they do their hubs.  Pay particular attention to their layout, where they put photos, do they use videos, news, etc?  Notice the length of their hub. 

    In both cases, 'best hubs' and 'best hubbers'...the list is always changing, but a few are pretty consistently there.

    What makes you think popularity, fan base, votes, or links has anything to do with hub or hubber scores?

      Because it does.

      Also bear in mind that a good Hubscore/Hubber score has no influence on earnings. 

      The best guide we have to what makes a quality Hub is the definition of a Flagship Hub. 

      Off the top of my head - informative, 1500 words, 5 photos, 3 videos, 15 tags, a News capsule, 10 outbound links. What did I forget?

    To me, a quality Hub includes each of the following:

    >> 100% original content
    >> 600 to 800 words
    >> informative and search-friendly title
    >> clean organization of your capsules, with no huge blobs of text (split them up into multiple text capsules with headings)
    >> informative and helpful for the reader

    If you can nail each of these, you're doing a really good job of creating quality content.

      Good answer, I was thinking, but its 2am here and my brain starts to sleep at this time. lol

    I agree with Ryan with one addition: a decent grasp of the English language -- and that goes for English AND non-English speaking folks!

    This is a lot of good food for thought.  I am glad that I asked.

    Sorry, getpaidtopost....you  made it sound like it was all about a popularity contest and I took offense to that.

    I could have worded my question better.

    Edit:  which was a question by the way, that I would have followed up on, but...still poorly worded on my part.  Ryan and Marissa answered it well.

      I am working on the uniqueness part...I am planing to make some different kinds of hubs.
