    What is a Good score for a hub? Like If my hub show a 58 or 59 score , is that good or bad?

      Not every hub can be an 70, 80 or higher. If you hub has few words, or is music or a poem, then 59 might be as high as it will go. If the hub has lots of pictures, a video clip or poll, then it will usually move into the mid 60's or 70's.
      If you want your hub to achieve a higher rating, check out the Learning Center to find out what you can do to improve its score.

      Scores don't mean much, other than indicating whether you're meeting HubPages' guidelines for your Hubs.   If you look at the "Need Some Goals" section in the top right hand corner, and aim to tick as many of those boxes as you can, you will get a better score.

      Right now your Hubs read more like something I'd see on someone's blog.  HubPages is more like an online magazine where you can read in-depth articles on various topics.

      Although we have a small community of members here, most of our readers are from outside HubPages, and they don't know or care who we are - they want to get helpful information, opinions or advice about something.  If you can write Hubs that offer that, you can do well.

        Thank you for the feedback :-). I'll definitely try writing informative articles.

    Okay, thank you. I haven't used any pictures and videos, it's just a small article, so I believe I am on the right track. Thank you for the information. I'll also check out the learning center

    A good score is - any score at all, if you're getting traffic and/or money.

    Scores are meaningless as long as your article isn't complete spam. I stopped seeing them years ago. I have no idea what scores my top earning hubs have smile

    Thank you for the information. I thought it was one of the factor for measuring the success of a hub. But how do I know if people are liking my posts or not? My Goal is to get traffic to my hub and also earn money but because I am a new to Hubpages (just joined few days ago) so I am not even eligible to earn. So for now, I just want people like my posts and if they don't I should get an idea so I can improve. Is there anyway I should be able to know readers views? Any stats that I might be missing?
    Please let me know. Thanks for clearing my doubt about the score though! :-)

      You should use Google Analytics to check stats and see how much traffic you are getting and from where and how long they stay on a page. There is a tutorial here in the Learning Center about Google Analytics. Also you can use the stats provided here at Hubpages, under My Account and Hubs or on each individual Hub.

        Thank you. I'll check out the learning center for analytics too. For now I am looking the stats under My Account for each individual hub only(just like you said). That only gives an idea of overall traffic and where the traffic comes from (from traffic sources). For duration I think I need to setup Analytics.

    I'd stop worrying about the mechanics and get on with making hubs and content and then look at how they fare.

    If you've read and absorbed the basic rules of how this place works all you then need to know is that NOTHING HAPPENS OVERNIGHT! smile

    I don't think you should be very concerned about your hub score.

    1. Weareallinsane profile image62

      Yes, I'll just keep writing and won't bother about the score. :-)

      lol, do you get a 100 score on your hub? But anyway, like everyone has said above I'd stop worrying about the score and just focus on writing good articles. Thank you for replying!
