    HubScores are low if you've only published a Hub or two. That is on purpose--it's a disincentive for spammers to leave one-off "drive-by" Hubs.

    If you continue to publish, you'll see your HubScore rise.

    Thanks, both Jason and Misha!

    I am definitely not a spammer. Just want to build my business, that's all! I think this site is really cool. And because of this, I will have to sharpen my writing skill again....heeheheheee

    Hi there and welcome!

    Spend some time browsing other Hubs - you'll find there are plenty of Hubs about how to write HubPages, which will help you set your Hubs up better.

    Try splitting your text up into two or three separate capsules so you can add photos and revenue capsules, which will make your Hubs look more appealing.  Darkside has written a Hub on Capsules if you need help working out how!

    Your hubscore increases
    1. When you write original, quality hubs
    2. When you get more and more visitors.
    3. When they leave comments and ratings
    4. When you visit and comment on other hubs.
    5. When you leave ratings on other sites.

    And when you do the above, you

    5. Get more visitors
    6. Get more thumbs up and comments

    It's like the opposite of a vicious cycle; and it compounds as you keep hubbing.

    This is what I discovered so far. This is a very friendly community, and everybody supports everybody else. smile

    All the best.

    Even very good quality Hubs start out with a score between 45 and 50, and they gradually improve over time (even if they are sitting about unpublished).

    Your average Hub rating affects your Hubber rating, so if your Hubs are good quality, over the next day or two you should see a steady increase.
