Hub Score!

    My latest Hub has achieved a score of 96!
    This is a first, thanks to Margaret Schindel and Marisa Wright for pointing me in the right direction.  Without your help, I might still be floundering in deep water. Thank you so much.

        Thank you, it has made a big difference to how I will now approach writing my Tutorials.

      Please write a hub (or point me to one) with tips on what you did to achieve this fantastic score. It's been a couple of years since mine have scored that high, regardless of all the blocks being ticked, original photos used, breaking up text blocks, full width first photo, etc.. Of course, there are always those hubbers who tell us that score doesn't count. But if it doesn't count, then why put it out there?

      1. sallybea profile image97
        sallybeaposted 18 months agoin reply to this

        I am definitely no expert but I took a quick look at a couple of your hubs.
        I did notice was that you are not always using APA Guidelines for your Titles and Headings.  I have started using this tool http://capitalizemytitle.com/#
        and whilst it is not always perfect it has really helped me a lot.  I just copy and paste the headings into it and at a click of a button, it corrects them according to the APA guidelines.
        I also use the free Grammarly download and whilst some people don't advocate it, I know even when I am typing a comment or writing a hub it will give me the option to change my  spelling, grammar and punctuation if I have typed something incorrectly.
        I suspect that traffic to a hub may bring the score up but to most of us it is a mystery and I don't generally take much notice of scores but it was nice to see one high up there even if it has gone down again 2 points today.

        Thanks myburmastory, I wish HubPages were so inspired.  It still has not been moved to the niche site in spite of the high score so I guess they have set the bar even higher:)

        1. myburmastory profile image44
          myburmastoryposted 18 months agoin reply to this

          I think so. I will try my best for my first hub to be published. I hope one day I would get score as high as yours.

        2. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image99
          TIMETRAVELER2posted 18 months agoin reply to this

          It will show up probably by early next week.  My new hubs usually get moved in less than a week.

          1. sallybea profile image97
            sallybeaposted 18 months agoin reply to this

            I hope so, the sooner they move the better as when hubs are fresh they receive the most traffic and this one was pretty good from the outset so I feel it could have been even better:)   I don't like to flip them on Flipboard until they have been moved to the Niche site but perhaps I am being impatient with Thanksgiving hols coming up.
            Happy Thanksgiving, hope yours is terrific.

            1. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image99
              TIMETRAVELER2posted 18 months agoin reply to this

              I never put anything on Flipboard that has not first been moved to a Niche because Flipboard does not tag them and often excludes the image. 
              As a result, they get few if any views.

              Hope your Thanksgiving is a good one, too.

                sallybeaposted 18 months agoin reply to this

                Nope, neither do I for the same reason but it is frustrating having to wait...........  to a niche site since I consider it be my best one yet.

  2. Jodah profile image89
    Jodahposted 18 months ago

    Wow, well done Sally. I once had a hub with a score of 96 but that was long ago. Now 86 is the best I can do.

    1. sallybea profile image97
      sallybeaposted 18 months agoin reply to this

      Jodah, thank you.  It was short lived, went down  2 points but is now back up there again:)  Now I just have to see if it makes the niche site:)

    Great! Congratulations, Sallybea. You deserve it, isn't it !
    I have saved your reply. I'll be using it as a guidance in future.
    Just one question- Have you downloaded the Free Grammarly or their advanced version?

    1. sallybea profile image97
      sallybeaposted 18 months agoin reply to this

      Just the free Grammarly, it is perfectly adequate for what we need.

    Cool! Hubs in the 90s have become rare, at least for me. But 96 is super high in light of all the HP algo changes and site changes. Congratulations, sallybea!

    1. sallybea profile image97
      sallybeaposted 18 months agoin reply to this

      Hi, Jan, it was cool, however, today it is a meager 93 which tells me that score has something to do with traffic as well quality.  I had a lot of traffic to the hub.  It was nice while it lasted!

      1. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image99
        TIMETRAVELER2posted 18 months agoin reply to this

        I think this was great, but I agree with you.  It's interesting, though, because nothing in the hub itself changed...just the traffic.  BTW...I loved the Red Hat thing you placed on FB...so cute!

          Thank you, I appreciate the feedback.  I kind of like the red hat thing too:)
