Anybody got any ideas?

It's already been edited to a fare-thee-well.
Kind of getting tired of it dragging down my profile score.
Happy Monday morning!
You may want to start out explaining what it is and why you take it. I think you can switch the capsules around.
Hub of the Day seems to have no relation to score. In fact, on of my HOTDs was later unfeatured for Quality. I'd be more concerned whether it gets traffic than what the score is. Some of my best hubs have low scores.
Happy Monday to you para. I remember this hub, saw my congrats comment to you 21 months ago! Time flies here at HP. Here are my suggestions:
1. Title: Choose one or the other between "with" or "from"
2. Remove the subtitle "Introduction." Replace it with "Make Your Own St. John's Wort Tea"
3. Make all images full width; change up repetitive captions ("These beautiful flowers make a great tea," "This medicinal plant has helped many people overcome depression.").
4. Read the entire article slowly and check for small typos - they add up.
If your hubscore does not go up at least 7 points, I will eat my hat. No, maybe I'll help you edit another hub.
I have never trusted people who wear hats, or simply have access to them for eating, but that is pretty good advice.
It is a friendly, easy to read page but a little eccentric. I remember Simone Smith once talking about 'over-caffeinated, hyperactive titles' and at the time I was pretty sure she sure she was thinking of PDS, lol.
Thank you, Janis! I shall implement every one of your suggestions.
This has become an excellent morning, off to do some editing.
You now have a pixalated image.
How about this:

The first one is a little fuzzy, the second one is entirely pixalated, the third one is fine.
Past midnight here. My final contribution. Best of luck...
Thanks. May awesome dreams be yours.
Update. Pics all better now, leastwise the HP warning has gone away. How'd the heck did I miss that anyway? Oh, well.
Are the photos all of the same plant? One typo in first pargraph, "you" instead of "your". What about a photo of a capsule in place one of the flowers or even a video showing a capsule being dismembered or whatever you do to them?
Little Tuesday morning slow jam for my Hubpages peeps..
Well, sports fans... It's been 10 days and the aforementioned hub now has a grand slam hub score total of 69. If the thing wasn't getting decent traffic, it'd be out of here and on my website. I might just transfer the critter anyway.
When I edit, or get Mturk views, my scores go up 5 or 10 points. They end up usally in the same range anyway in the end.
Yep, editing for the purpose of raising a hubscore truly is a waste of time; which means our profile scores are pretty much locked in as well, leastwise as to the upside.
Sorry to hear it didn't help, para. I was so sure it would, maybe because it usually works for me. I think the algo for hubscores changed after subdomains were eliminated, even more so after the new sites launched. I used to have a lot of hubs in the 90s. Now most of my hubs are in the 70s, my HOTD included. So I don't think editing doesn't work; it just doesn't work like it used to with the new algo. [If I'm wrong, HP staff please tell me]
There is also another factor to consider; what was considered an HOTD back in the day is now considered a PoS in year 2016. After all, the critter didn't make it to the niche site while my other hub did. Then again, maybe they never bothered to look at it because of its crummy score.
Hard to say. One of my beverage articles has not been selected but my three pet ones were..they just have not gotten to some perhaps. These sites are flying out right now. .I do know that you don't need an extremely stellar score to be picked. Mine that did hover in high 70 low 80's. I think I have some dud hubs dragging my overall score down. Whatever. Me not's terribly concerned over it.
Me neither, I just felt like ranting about something.
Oh I know that's cool! I just like the good convo..

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!
