I just wrote a new article: http://fryday.hubpages.com/hub/Desoxyn
I am trying to figure out why I scored a 73, while my other articles have scored 83+.... I would appreciate anyone's input and constructive criticism. Thank you! :-)
Add sub-headings so people can navigate through the sections more easily.
Just saying where you got a photo from, doesn't make it legal. The photo needs to be licensed to allow it. I wrote a Hub about how to get photos, you'll find it on the slider on my profile.
If you click on the blue writing below the picture, it takes you to the source of the picture. When I searched through Google images I made sure all the pictures were "licensed for reuse" through the search tools.
Photo attributions are not part of the QAP score.
You still need to check the website/webpage fro the photo to make sure it has the appropriate license. Sometimes Google messes up, especially with photos.
I write more newspaper/magazine style articles. I don't think it is appropriate to use sub-headings for the type of content I write. My articles are over 1000 words. They rarely include "sections", but instead, paragraphs.
The article lists a bunch of different side effects Desoxyn causes. Should I be breaking them down into individual lines with bullets? There are A LOT of side effects..
The article took me almost 6 hours of straight work to complete... :-(
Your hub is good one, but it does have ways to make it better. I only skimmed your hub, but here is what I noticed.
1. Two polls one right after the other. You may want to right justify them and put them more inside the article.
2. The paragraphs aren't titled. This makes it hard to find the information they need for people who skim. Also these headings are helpful places to put keywords that search engines use to find your hub.
3. Semicolons and colons are used incorrectly. I saw one instance of each during my skim. Here's a hub that will explain semicolons: http://cclitgirl.hubpages.com/hub/semic … e-of-colon
4. Your pictures don't appear to be legally used. See this Learning Center article: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/legal-image-use
Also, the last paragraph about marijuana is off topic.
Simply posting a comment and answering a question once or twice per week would bring up your score, based on my experience.
I did some revising to my article. I think once it is re-reviewed, I should get a better score. Check it out if you like. :-) Thank you for your advice everyone.
Hello everyone I am new on hubpages. And till date I have only two published hubs. Can anyone tell me that why my first hub score is reducing after publising my second hub.

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 hub count is now way down, so that instead of 10 more hubs to 100, I've now got to...

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is recommend to get a good score.It is disheartening not to get a feedback. For...

What is considered a good hub score? How do I improve my hub score?
by Emily Tack 3 years ago
To satisfy my own curiosity, I would like to know why one of the hubs that was transferred from Squidoo, has such a low "hub score". I have gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, and cannot figure it out. It currently has 11,945 words, many photos, and is - in my opinion - informative....

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

Last night, I published my first hub and I am waiting to see if it will be featured or not. I see that about 20 hours after publishing, my hub has recieved 10 views and a score of 52. Is that score good? I made my article attractive with 3 photos properly credited, a poll, a quiz and of course...
