as I understand The number on the bottom right of my display picture, is my hub score? If so how do I increase it? Thanks
Welcome to HubPages Migodden. your hub score will change as you 'age' with HP. Use the Help tab to find the FAQ which will answer a number of questions. You're brand new and it will rise so do not worry.
- keep posting nice original hubs
- participate in forums genuinely
- answer questions that you really know the answer to
- ask your nagging questions if you have any
score keeps increasing. I joined 8 days ago and am already at 90. My profile activity and hubs could be an example.
wow, when i first started my hubscore was mid 80's-90's, why do you have an 11?
It seems like your content is original and conversational.
perhaps you should invest some time into adding links, video boxes, ad capsules and the rest of the frills that lead to a higher individual hub score and supposedly a better user experience
This is interesting to me too as my hub score seems to go up and down quite randomly. I published a hub today and thought that my score might go up because of it but that doesn't seem to have done it.
Does linking into the hub from external webpages help at all or just link to other hubs on the same subject (mine or other people's)?
I wonder too whether the fact that I joined two years ago and went quiet for sometime has any bearing on it all too?
Some good tips above though - thanks
iam also worry about score, i have post two hubs have score 58 and 60 but my individual hub score is 17 plz tell me how i can raise my individual hub score.
Don't worry about score it will increase.Create original articles.
Shane - I think you need more content. Short hubs can work, but yours are really short.
Use more capsules for text, pics, videos, links. Doesn't have to a lot more, just more than 1, hub content is a very big factor in hub quality
almost forgot, when you are writing your hub, make sure you keep a pencil behind your right ear, like all good editors, Hubpages will notice if you don't and penalize your score
(ps. you already had the right advice above, just thought I'd see if you were awake)
I care less about scores. To be here, is so much fun already! plus i get to save my stories, and yes..entertain a few.
There are a couple of very good hubs on the subject. Try these:

I hope those are useful.
1) Keep writing hubs
2) review and fan others work
3) leave comments when you are moved to do so
4) Keep writing hubs
5) Pop in the forums every now and then
6) Keep writing hubs
Honestly, I just don't see the big deal. Unless I completely misunderstand the process, someone with a ranking of 95 isn't receiving any better treatment than someone with a ranking of 75. Its fun to see numbers go up, but you should worry more about making money not running up an arbitrary number.
The number is "mostly" arbitrary, as long as its above 75, any lower and your links become nofollow, which matters if you use hubpages for backlinks in anyway
Also having a higher score on individual hubs, makes you more likely to appear in the hot and best feeds on the first page (for hub traffic)
and a higher hubber score, will make it more likely to appear as a featured hubber on the front page, which could be non hubber visitors
notice I said "could" a lot, i certainly dont know all the details of their algorithms, 17 is bad! you dont want that , but yeah anything between 75-100 is good enough for me
but then again, the OP's score is now 93!
So with a hubscore below 50 i feel like a bit of a unloved hubber, i am assuming my shady lack of picture may be partially to blame for that though... off to my facebook for a good pic...
I thought I was the only one with this concern, but thanks guys!

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...
