Hello. My name is Cory James. I have been a HubPages members for two weeks now. With seven published hubs (one more in review), I am curious to know what is considered to be the ABSOLUTE minimum "acceptable" rating? I was at 75, but administrators unpublished one of my hubs bringing my rating down to 63. Now it's back up to 70. I'm assuming that this score is mediocre at best. Am I right? Also, what are good ways to increase traffic to my hubs?
If you want to use HubPages to provide backlinks to other sites, an author score of 75 or above is a must. Below that, the backlinks in all of your hubs become no-follow, giving them very little search engine value. If your score remains low, likely you have problems such as duplicate, substandard, or overly promotional content.

I feel good when my score is going up. I feel important and get noticed by others.

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic...
