    I'm here nearly three months. I have published 11 hubs. All of my hubs have score over 80 and just one have 78. This is a hub about my country, Serbia. I did a lot of research and spent over a week to write this article. Probably there are some grammar mistakes, because English is not my native language.

    As I'm not allowed to include link to my hub, I will write a name of my hub: Things To Do And See In Serbia

    I would be very grateful for any help.

      Writing hubs is not only enough to generate income. You have to make others to read your hub. This can be done by posting the link through Facebook, Twitter and some other social websites.
      Since the readers from any part of the world, the content should be legible and grammar is very important without spelling mistakes.

      It is to be noted that earning income overnight is not possible. You should be consistent in your work and wait for the fruit. Sure you will get the benefit for your work with delayed gratification. So write more and post the link through social websites. All the best.

        For increasing the hub score also, you have to write more and generate lot of traffic. So traffic plays a important role to increase hubscore.

          Thank you Venkat for the detailed reply. I'm promoting my hubs through all social websites and I'm consistent in my work (at least one hub per week). But I'm just asking myself what's wrong with "Things To Do And See In Serbia" hub. If you have some time just take a look and tell me your opinion.

            Your hub has lot of information. When people searching for a information through Hubs or articles, they will search using the keywords in the search Engine like Google search, etc.

            So you must be precise while giving heading to your hub and also use keywords in your hub. I can simply say to change the title of your hub as "Best places to visit in Serbia'. Like that you have to use your title. When people searching places to visit Serbia through search engine, they will simply put the 'Places to visit in Serbia'. Then your hub will be displayed in the top list.

            So follow the above said methods and change the title of your hub and also use major keywords related to places and important things in Serbia.
            Hope you can understand now!

    Don't worry about the hubscore. It will rise in due course, and even if it doesn't, it's not a problem as the hub score doesn't have any negative effect unless it's really low, such as below 50 or something. In that case the hub will become invisible to search engines - but your score is high enough not to have to worry about that.

    You've asked for help as English is not your first language. No problem - we can help. Overall, your hub is well-written and informative. It does have a few typos, though, and some non-standard phrasing. I'll take the first two paragraphs, and I'm sure some others will be happy to supply more corrections when they have time.

    Paragraph 1
    Write "What I HAD not seen... instead of "What I HAVE not seen". If you write "HAVE not" instead of "HAD not", it means you still haven't seen it until now. If you want to know more about this difference in verb tense usage, look up PRESENT PERFECT TENSE and PAST PERFECT TENSE.

    Don't write "My beautiful country of Serbia." as a complete sentence. It's a phrase that belongs to the previous sentence; it's not a sentence itself.
    "What I had not seen all of these years was located just in front of my nose: my beautiful country of Serbia."

    Paragraph 2
    Since its inception in the 9th century, Serbia has been many times conquered...

    Since its inception in the 9th century, Serbia has been conquered many times...

    Also, the way it's written means that 17 Roman emperors have been born in Serbia since the 9th century, which is obviously not true. You should mention that fact before mentioning "Since its inception in the 9th century...".

    "This mixture of various cultures and tradition, left indelible marks." Leave out the comma after "tradition".

      I appreciate your time. Thank you for the support, suggestions and encouragement. I will make all corrections you have suggested to me and also recheck my article again. Your advice means to me a lot!

        dis-cover, I have read your hub and found it an enjoyable read and packed with information. The above suggestions are small things you can improve on. I suggest you read as many other hubs as possible and leave comments, that will help increase your following and generate more views. You are doing well to have a hub score of 97, mine is only 88 and I have about 115 hubs, and quite a few with scores in the 60s (though they are poetry which scores lower). Just be patient and work hard and you will see the rewards.

          Thank you John, my friend, for the encouragement and advice. Unfortunately, right now I'm working a lot and I don't have enough time to participate in the community as I should. But I'll do my best to improve.
          Best wishes!

    Don't worry too much about hubscore, it is internal to Hubpages and is not seen by the search engines or your readers who are the real judges of your content.

    The important thing is views, if the search engines are not sending you visitors you need to ask yourself why? Are there no searches for your keywords? Is there too much competition? Is your page good enough?

      As English is not my native language, I think I'll need more experience. Finding out the hot topics is also very important. Thanks for the advice!
