If a person does a poll or quiz, votes up or checks other ratings (interesting, beautiful, etc.), rates a recipe, or writes a comment, I presume that is engagement.
Do any of these below count as engagement?
Click on video link?
Pins a photo?
Shares with H+?
Shares with social media buttons?
Clicks an amazon or ebay capsule?
Buys from amazon or ebay after clicking?
Clicks on a link to a HP website included in the text?
Clicks on a link to another (non HP) website?
Clicks on a related hub?
Clicks on an advertisement?
Favorite the page?
Catherine - Your list is simply amazing. You sure can think outside the box - or think with depth, and quickly.
Good question that affects all of us. Bounce time comes to mind reflecting how much time someone spends on our page before moving on.
I'd like to know since hub scores are based on engagement.
I guess all of them are considered as engagement, to encourage your readers to stay longer
Engagement can be considered an umbrella term which encapsulates visitor interest or action. You will find some web marketers redefine what that means very specifically for each client or project, and those people often are more successful.
Sometimes it is just code for "time spent on page". It means whatever than person means by it.
Catherine, I think all of the actions you listed could be included in how a user engages with a page. Whether it's included in how scores are calculated also depends on how much data HP has for a hub. Many readers don't take time to vote in polls, etc., not because they don't find the hub satisfactory, but because they simply don't want to. If there's not enough data, the score is reflected more by QAP.
I think engagement starts in the search results. If the searcher finds a hub listing that looks like it will answer their query perfectly, chances are we get a click and hopefully an engaged reader. They don't click back to SERP's because they found what they're searching for. I personally don't think voting in polls makes that much of a difference.
The first paragraph needs to get their attention enough to want to continue reading. The summary should have already told them what we're going to cover. I don't like to repeat it at the beginning, although I know some hubbers do. I don't think there's one 'right' forumula. We write for our targeted audience which means we have to understand what they want to know and write it in a way that they will consume it satisfactorily. (What do we want them to do/know?)

Some of my hubs, I do include Ebay capsules that are related to my hubs but I had not earn a single cent nor a single click nor any impression from Ebay. Do I need to key in anything in the Ebay capsules like the ID? May I know what went wrong?

I'm just curious - Do you see your HP profile page, tag pages (clicks and impressions) in adsense reports? I mean, if you are using URL Channels for it.

I have been a member in HP for quite some time, but active in the past 6 months.I have posted 17 hubs so far.I notice from my Adsense account that my no. of ad clicks to page views is 1 per 57 which seems to be very low. My earnings from HP is next to nothing.I don't bother much about SEO, hot...
