Your Hubber score is 86. I wouldn't worry about it.
As long as it is over 85, I would focus my attention on getting readers to my hubs - make them the best they can be for the reader, make sure there are proper keywords in them, etc., and in writing more hubs with these qualities.
You have been here four years and have only nine hubs. For just nine hubs a score of 85 is pretty good - write more hubs and don't be so concerned about trying to raise your hubber score, for it will take care of itself as you continue to write. And you are a good writer who provides great information and related photos.
This is only a suggestion: Write more hubs and try to narrow it down on the topics till you grow a reputation of a knowledgeable writer on one or two topics, then expand out to new topics one at a time with at least two (more is better) related hubs on the topic. Out of your nine hubs you have only two with the same topic (American History) and they are good. Pick one of your other topics that you have a hub on (home improvement) and write more hubs on that topic.
Looking at "What Died With The Angel Of The Alamo?" hub I have another suggestion:
Your keyword focus should be within the first sentence of the article. That is standard practice and answers your title. Keyword focus is 'Angel Of The Alamo'
"Who was the “The Angel of the Alamo”?" capsule should be at the beginning, for it reflects your title. Then follow with Lorenzo de Zavala capsule then the "Remember the Alamo?" capsule.
Your photos are really good and enhance the article, but you need to remember that all images must have proper attribution noted in the caption or at least at the end of your hub.
Edit: All images must be in Public Domain or Creative Commons and licensed for commercial use (HubPages is considered commercial, for we do earn money on our hubs).
I too ponder the mystery of a Hubber Score. We all know it is determined by a fancy algorithm. At the Learning Center they have a section in a Hub found at this link explaining their position. It is preceded how they determine a Hub Score.
Why? Even if you have a hubber score of 100, you will not get more traffic. If you have a hubber score of 50 you will not have less traffic. Are you here to try and impress other hubbers or are you here to write hubs and have them read?
I understand that, though the good news is that links still can provide some traffic to your sites. At least, I've found this to be the case, and the traffic is good in terms of time on site and bounce rate.
Hi, Joey. I was responding to psycheskinner who said they wanted dofollow links. As far as your author score goes, links won't really help as far as I know. I was just saying that if you put links on your Hubs that go to your own site (if you have one), it can give your site a bit of traffic. Author score is a bit of a mystery, though it is said that scores on each individual Hub influences it, so my thinking is that producing high-quality engaging Hubs is the best way to boost your overall Author Score. Which just means keep writing.
Sure, there is a difference. It just does not mean anything. (I always had a 100 hubber score when HP counted traffic. Now that they no longer consider traffic important, my score has gone down. My traffic has not changed, however.)
Earlier I posted that people should go and make links going to other sites that do not belong to you nofollow. Then someone mentioned that if your hubber score is less than 85 then "every link" will be...
My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to...
