I just recently joined HubPages to see if it would work out for me and posted my very first Hub. I was eager to see if my writing would meet HubPages reportedly high quality standards, and as it turns out, it was with a Hub Score of 78.
I'm not complaining, since as far as I can tell a 78 is a good score for a first post, but I'm trying to shoot for somewhere in the mid-80s. Looking at the only post I have up right now in my profile, what do you think could use improvement?
A friend of mine told me that it lacked some of my personality and sense of humor, which I admit I toned down a little out of fear of coming off as too goofy to take seriously. Should I try adding more of that or would that be too personalized for HubPages?
It says it's overly promotional, apparently for having too many links. When that happened before, I got an indication while I was editing, not after the fact.
Check out the learning centre, FAQ and other people's hubs to learn how to create a great hub.
Overly promotional usually means more than two links to one external site, or solely promoting something you have an interest in or a teaser leading to another site.

I used to like to bring the silly moderation messages to light, in order to hopefully get better explanations of the new rules that HP created throughout 2011.Eventually, the lack of definitions by HP just became irritating and I stopped and just left the account to fester.But, for 2012, I was...

Hello,Hubpages is a good place to publish informative short articles and product reviews, while having the option to leave affiliate links to these products. I recently published a few hubs on different topics (Yeast infection, UTIs, CMS and others) and gave 4-5 links on each to useful products...

Despite the fact that my traffic in that time span is up from 500 views a day to 5400 views a day. Wtf? Apparently hubber score is useless. Oh and my average hub score is up in that same span of time too.
