Hello! I am fairly new here. I enjoy writing, not so experienced. But I would love some feed back on the hubs I have already written so I know what direction to take.
Nicotine: How to avoid temptation and How to ease your child's mind.
The first one has a higher score than the second. Is there an obvious reason why? Thank you!
I just read How to Ease Your Child's Mind and I liked your article. I would say the score may not have been high because the topic itself is not highly searched. I believe your score-- especially initially-- is dictated on how often people are searching the topic.
I read Nicotine: How to avoid temptation. Your writing style is interesting although I am curious to know if your first-person perspective will benefit you are not. I do not come close to an expert but I am wondering if people who are searching for information on nicotine and how to quit smoking would be more or less likely to read a hub about someone's first-hand account and personal story. I also found this hub to be a little short although I thought it was off to a good start. I may be a bit to "science-y" but maybe some additional methods recommended by researchers or information on how to reach additional support would add to it.
In general, I would say, possibly consider more pictures/diagrams and also consider putting the amazon items in other locations besides the end. You may want to play with the -> and have these columns moved to the right.
Your score is high already considering you have been on for less than a week so I think you are well on your way to hubpages success!
I think you're off to a good start. (Welcome to HP, by the way). I agree with Sue B. on the more pictures. You can go back and insert images pretty easily (make sure you have rights for them, and give proper attribution). A hub, while writing is the core of it, it is also a visual experience, so having a nice variety of text, photos, videos and the occasional poll or even the sales capsules all makes for a more pleasant experience. Remember to think like a writer, but also think like a magazine "page layout" designer too.

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...

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total...

Just noticed that the Hub score decreases after a period of time, I know learning all the time. Also noticed your overall Hubscore goes up and down, so what does one do to make them get higher or just remain constant ?

Am active on the forums, and getting a few new fans and joining up with a few writers...things look good. Then when I post a new hub my points go down 2-3 points and creep back up within 2-3 days. Does...

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...
