What's the secret to writing high-scoring hubs?
There Is No Real Hub Score Secret
Hubscores only serve as an in house score for well received content that is well written and well commented on.
High scoring hubs are defined as useful or search engine worthy too, but it seems a few factors go into the high hub score hub pages.
If your hub page receives comments at a steady rate it is perceived as a useful or interesting page and so to some degree the quality of the comments could be taken into account, instead of low grade throw away comments such as "nice hub, thanks" instead you have your say and an opinion, sort of like blogging comments were you contribute to something that is a community based discussion about the work that someone has written.
Equally, a good hub page will have quality comments that add to the content preceding it, in the world of online publishing, peoples opinions count towards the end goal of being well received as a writer or a blogger.
High traffic is another thing that will no doubt increase the hub score, from the search engines and internally within Hubpages itself.
All you really need though is a well written hub page that has been optimised for the search engines and so that Hubbers may find it in the Hubpages community, but in this little community you really need to be active and indeed interactive with other Hubbers and comment on their hubs genuinely with your opinions and insight as people seem to appreciate the time it takes to write a decent carefully thought out comment, and they may comment a few of your Hubpages back.
Therefore, it is worth writing high quality content or at the very least something you know a bit about so you can research it some more and build up an archive of brilliant content...I'm no expert, it's just the way I see it! and it's also the way others tell it!
Word Count Counts
Having a high word count for each hub helps if your written content isn't fluff that is and you get to the point of your article. Don't forget that text under a photo also counts towards your hub word count.
Filling up your text modules with keywords that are relevant to your article and the relevant tags in the tag section all help to determine your hubscore too, although there will be some factors like participation within the forums and other aspects of the site such as questions and answers that may raise your score slightly. The best thing to do is just to write what you know and enjoy it instead of worrying about your hubscore.
