A Question About the Rising Star Program

    Hey everyone, I'm new to Hubpages and have only been here for a few days and went to the Learning Centre and read about the Rising Star program. It seemed very interesting and I thought that the accolade would be a great first achievement on Hubpages but I have a question about it. The page said that one of the requirements was to have a Hub score of 75+. I just need a confirmation that it means the score of my individual hub and not my overall score. As I think I may find it hard to get my overall score over 75 but my hub was published about an hour ago and has a hubscore of 67 so I think that will go up a bit from what I heard.

    My hub isn't ready yet as I still think it could be improved more to be able to achieve the accolade but I'm just curious for when I think it is ready and I can try and become a Rising Star.

      Hi, Oscar - Welcome to HubPages!  I hope you enjoy writing here, and enjoy the community of new friends you'll make on the site.

      Yes, the 'Hub Score' refers to the actual hub; the other score is the "Hubber Score."  Confusing, eh?

      The Rising Star program is a great way for the site and readers to get to know new writers here. Staff members and various volunteers regularly read content from new members, and the best way to get noticed and nominated is to write often, write well, and become active in the community.  Your comments here are a good way to meet new people.  You can also answer questions (or post them) in the Q&A section here.

      Again, the best way to earn accolades for writing is to write high-quality content and produce often.  The site suggests at least 500 words (more is betterI), at least one properly used photo (more, if possible), and additional capsules such as polls, quizzes, tables and maps. You can also upload videos.  Original photos (also videos) are great, but of course those are not always possible.  Check out the FAQs for other good tips, and also do a site-search for "Stellar Hubs" to see the qualities the highest-performing hubs on the site have.

      Good luck with your writing!  Glad to have you here!

      Hi oscar86! Heeding Marcy's helpful tips will definitely make a difference.

      Also, rest assured that the Hubs from which we draw Rising Star candidates don't have to be super freshly published, so if you have published a Hub now and keep improving it over time, it may very well be chosen!
