How do you get people to rate your hubs? I'm getting the traffic, but no ratings. Yikes is my writing that bad?
By "ratings" do you mean the thumbs up/down, Sarra? Just so you know, we don't ever see how many thumbs up and thumbs down Hubs receive. HubPages used to show that info but so many authors got so hung up on that info, they no longer reveal those to us.
Not sure what you mean by ratings, Sarra? I had a look at some of your Hubs and they seemed to have a reasonable Hubscore and a few comments sprinkled around.
If it is comments you want, you will probably need to write about something a bit more contentious, or read lots of Hubs and leave comments yourself.
If it is Hubscore, well you say you have the traffic? The only thing that struck me that some of your Hubs (the Alligators one), are a little short (though I am one of those people who can never keep a Hub short, sharp anc concise!)
If you are here to make money, the fact that you are getting traffic is great, and you should write a Hub on getting traffic!
If you want a critique on a specific Hub, post it in the Extreme Hub Makeover Forum Thread.
I took a look at your hubs too and they seem like they have a decent initial score. It took me a few months to get a hub that scored higher than 75. The only thing you can do to get people to rate your hubs is just to throw in a tag line at the end of your hub "Please don't forget to rate this."
I think you'll find though that hubs will fluctuate randomly up and down quite a bit. Hubscore really isn't very important for individual hubs. If you're getting good amounts of traffic, that's the most important thing. Best of luck.
I think nanette111 has been popping up on varies topics today. best to ignore and report. And your hubs look fine to me.

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is...

I been on a couple of days and pretty much all my traffic is from hubpages. I get a couple from digg but that is about it. How are people getting their traffic from google and other search engine?
