    Hi everyone,

    My name is Johnny, and I submitted my very first Hub today. I'm pretty excited to get going, and see what I can accomplish here.

    Here's my first one: … -Beer-Snob

    I received a score of 63 on this one. Is that good? I would love some feedback as to whether or not it looks like I'm on the right track. As I dive into it more, I'm sure I'll discover how I can gain more followers, and get more views.

    Anyway, glad to be here!

    Welcome to Hubpages. My first hub was around 79 but I have since improved it, and with every new hub, I get better. I looked at your hub and a couple of ways to get a higher score would be to add text boxes where you teach me a bit about beer. What causes a beer to be "too thin"? What's a hop? An IPA? Do you have a popular brewer where you live? If so, add a map and let me know where it is located. Also what you like about it. And to get around the photo copyrights, I try and take as many of my own photos as I can to source myself. Take a look at some hubs and it will get easier and you will score higher in time. My last hub scored a 90. Sorry so long winded.

    Wow. That's a great response. Thanks for taking the time to write all of that. Very good tips.

    Prost! (that's Cheers in German!)
    Na Zdravi! (that's Cheers in Czech).

    Hi Johnny - Welcome to HubPages!
    Over time the score of hubs can move up or down.  Any time you make updates to your hub, it will get a new score when you resubmit it.

    Videos are always great to add to your hubs. And polls can be fun; I am sometimes surprised to see how many people have taken the time to vote in a poll.

    Good luck to you!

    I just read your beer hub. One of the things I noticed was that all of your photo capsules are full size. Use the sideways arrow button to make some of them 1 column in width and push them up next to a relevant text capsule. It will make your layout more appealing.

    Hi Johnny! I like your beer hub. It was good. I see you have a lot of tips already. I would put some photos next to the relevant text you mentioned and add some videos from you tube. Enjoy hubbing!
