I posted 10 hubs, 5 have been featured, the rest 5 just be published, so I'm thinking about if the hubs not be featured, that means that would never be indexed by google, should I delete it and move to others like squidoo or ezinearticles? Cuz its meaningless for SEO if not be public for search engine.....
Does that a good way or if I delete too many hubs, that would be banned my hubpages account?
And why my hubpages score from 78 decrease to 71 now...
If I delete these hubs not be featured, would my account score be increased?
You probably need to make the hubs not featured a bit longer. I read one of your featured hubs and, though a bit short on words, it was fine.
Your hubber score will continue to plummet if you follow so many people in so short a time, and particularly when they don't follow you back. The ratio of people you follow being much higher than the people that follow you tends to lower author score.
I suggest you unfollow about forty people immediately and start again. Build a following instead of following everyone else
Thank you for the help. I just unfollow these people, hope the score will be back soon.
My average is above 600 words, so at least 700 words?
You will find lots of disagreement here, but I would set a minimum of 1,000 words.
Nearly all my hubs range between 1,500 and 2,000, with a handful at 3,000 or a little more. If I find I want to write on something, and can't reach a thousand words I always feel like it probably isn't worth putting on HP. Let some blogger have it.
If your main purpose in writing here is to get backlinks for your main site, then you need to be aware that Google counts only one or two backlinks per domain. So even if you write 100 articles on HubPages, Google will count only one or two of those links.
Therefore yes, I'd look at spreading your articles around various sites if your goal is backlinks. If your aim is to build a following here and drive traffic that way, then I'd say consider moving the ones that didn't get featured, and try writing some more.
You are writing in a great niche. I'm gonna follow you. It takes time and patience to build your presence on the web, but you will do it. It is better to build slowly for the long term learning as you go. Visit the learning centre for great tips. Read others articles and comment and share. If you share others work, they will share yours. Hold off on following and aim to get followers of your own by continuing to write great content.
Deleting Hubs is an option... but so is improving them!

The fact that all your Hubs are promoting the same psychic site is probably going to give you problems and result in content being moderated as overly-promotional. Just building Hubs to get backlinks for a singular site all too often results in a banned account.
If I promote 2 sites about psychic, that would be fine for my account? Or I have to promote 2 different content sites?
I don't think you gave yourself enough time. Hubs take about a year to mature. I've been told mine are too long by some, but usually write about 1500 words at the least, and have gone up to 3,000 on occasion. If I feel strongly enough to write about something, I want to say something meaningful that explains my subject to my audience. I also believe Google is liking longer pieces from people who are experts or have a lot of knowledge about a particular subject.
If you have Hubs that are not featured, being patient won't help. They can't possibly become featured again, unless you do something to "improve" them.
Recently, I have seen idled Hubs become featured - but that's because HP has been tweaking the traffic requirement. It's unlikely that will happen again in future.
So if you have idled Hubs, there are two choices: either revise them in the hope you can impress the quality assessors, or delete them.
If a 3000 words article can change to 5 X 600 words articles, which way is better? For my SEO using, I think I'd like to split to 5 articles and get 5 different pages' backlinks. Any advice for me?
Remember what I said about Google counting only one or two backlinks from one domain? So you will not get 5 different backlinks, you will probably only get one that counts.
Having said that, a 3000 word Hub is probably too long and most readers won't persevere. Five separate Hubs, if they're split sensibly, are more likely to be read right through.
It's absolutely fine to link to the same blog or website in every Hub. It used to be against the rules here, but that rule was removed some time ago.
Thank you, I think I will delete the idled hubs, just keep the featured one.
Don't do it. Promote them and tweak them. I have just for the first time reached 100 of my 150 plus hubs featured all at the same time. I thought about deleting the non featured hubs but didn't. One at a time I tweaked them and continue to tweak and they start to get traffic. Promote on FB G+ Twitter LinkedIn Diggs Pinterest and watch them get views. Honestly it works.
Patience and commitment and more patience. Don't throw them away. You can't spend time writing articles to just discard them.
If the idle hubs get traffic, and it will be get featured? Thank you! I will do this way to see if it can be featured in the future!
Hubs go in and out of feature as they are idled and not subject to search engine traffic. You have to do the work, yes, to get them featured again by adding content, pictures, videos or even a poll or amazon and eBay capsule.
Good luck, you will get them to feature.
I would say, keep it and add more quality sentences to your writings. Add videos and photos, too. Tweaking your hubs is good too, but you have to be patient to yourself. Good luck!

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 consider?

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 fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...
