Hi i'm new to hubpages and i've been poking around with regards to the hubscore issue. seems that people are saying that if the hubscore for a hub doesn't break 75, it's not going to show up on a search.
My hubs have never broken 75 before and it kinda hovers around the 60+s. I've no idea what else i can do to give it a bump or two. can anyone enlighten me? thanks!
That is normal, try to look around your environment, especially those experienced hubbers on how they create their hubs, dont put to much pressure on you enjoy what you're doing and do your stuff to the best of abilities at all times... the important thing is you enjoy what you are doing...
There are other things you can do.
Participate in the Hub community. You have no fans ... try and make a little noise, enough so that others notice you, read your work, then hopefully like you enough to become a follower of your hubs.
Read, rate and comment on other's work. Use the Ideabank for Hub ideas. Join in with the HubMob or the HubChallenge. Become a voice (of snaity, not insanity ... we have enough daft buggers already!) in the forums.
Answer questions your fellow hubbers ask (above left, go take a look at what others are puzzled about).
Be a community player, your score will rise.
And - welcome to HubPages
Hubscore has no relevancy in determining if your Hubs show up in search engines.
The only thing your hubscore does is determine whether your outgoing links are "dofollow" or "nofollow". I don't know the exact numbers, but if you have an author score of 75 or higher, it makes them "dofollow", not sure what the individual hub needs to have for a score.
As for tips, join the "Improving Your Hubs" fan club and do some reading. There are tons and tons of Hubs here that talk about backlinks, hubscore, SEO, Google, AdSense and anything else you need to know.
It's nothing to worry about, mine goes up and down like a roller coaster I also agree with the others, there are lots of things you can do to help improve it and welcome to hubpages.
Hang in there, you have fine work. I checked out your hubs and find them wonderful. (You might want to revisit the first hub I posted a comment on though and do a little clean up on the opening). I was honored to join your fan club. I am looking forward to seeing how you branch out here on HP.
You will do fine. Take the advice from the Frog & others. Be involved in the forums, but not so much that it takes you away from your writing. Look at the current HubMob challenge http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/27336 and see if you can write to that subject. Read as much as you can about SEO, backlinks, etc..we have several very notable hubbers here who have written excellent articles on these subjects. DON'T go on a fanning spree
I don't get the fan club thing...so if you figure it let me know LOL
thanks for all the feedback and encouragement. really appreciate it. will continue to write more hubs and i think things will turn out swell in the end.
backlinks i don't get it though. i've been asking whether you'd link it to your profile or your specific hub but if it's a specific hub, then i'd need a lot of backlinks for all my hubs!
You want backlinks to your individual Hubs, and depending on the topic and your competition, will determine how many you need to get to the first page in the search engines.

Do-follow and No-follow backlinks affect our page ranking in google. Is there any relation to our hubscore here on Hubpages? I've been told that there is probably no affect on our hubscore in relation to our backlinks....

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers...

I am sort of disappointed. I try to be active in the site as much as possible, comment on other people's hubs, help out in the forums, add new hubs once every two weeks, participate in the question and answer and...

I have been on hubpages for two months. I have read multiple articles on SEO and backlinking. Ninety percent of my hubs do not have backlinking. But I choose for a while to say no backlinking. It...

Okay, so I am asking a quiestion about my hubscore because the whole idea of a hubscore seems a little cryptic to me at this point. Yesterday I passed the 75 threshold for the first time. And today I saw my...
