    What is considered a good hub score?  How do I improve my hub score?

    Good question, I too would like to know. I only created one hub and will create many more if there is good traffic here on this site. Not sure anyone is interested in writing and publishing.

    There's an automatic cut-off at a Hub score of 40, or an author score of 75:  below those, all Hubs have their outgoing links marked "nofollow."  So many people think that if you get your individual or author score above those thresholds, you're doing better than those folks below.

    Here's my personal take on improving HubScores, http://hubpages.com/hub/Boosting-HubScores

    Well I'm a newbie too, but I got my score up over 80 already and I'll share with you what I've been doing.  I try to be active in the Hubpages community. I do that by browsing the forums and I participate where it makes sense. I don't post just to make a post, only when I have something fitting to add to the discussion. I also try to answer a few questions, as I am doing now. And, of course, I publish hubs with meaningful and useful (I hope) information. I am writing a "progress report" for a hub where I discuss what I've leaned so far, to share with other newbies. I plan to publish it as a hub on November 1st so that I can include all of October in it. Why not watch for it.

      Apologies for resurrecting an old thread here but as a total newbie to HubPages I'm just finding my way around at the moment and of course this was something I couldn't work out.  I've also just discovered I can only write short forum posts!

    Enrich your hub content by adding more words, interesting pictures. Also, engae yourself into hub communities, and you will definitely see an increase of hub score.

    Newbie here as well, but it seems just getting involved in the HubPages and forums helps. Also, solid content and adding to your articles in the form of pics, vids, longer articles and so on seem to boost the score too..

    I know that this forum is old, but it was helpful.  I am a newbie and write when I have time.  I scored higher on my first hub and believe that it was because it was unique about my family and such.  These were my original photos.  In the second article, I wrote about a place that I visited and a third one on record searches and I scored lower on both of those articles, but had more words.  The photos were also used from Flickr, so that was not original and may have brought the score down too.  I'm thinking originality may be priority as well.  My next plan is to begin reading other hubs and responding.  If you have any current feedback, I would enjoy reading it.  Thanks!

    Your HubPages score is a reflection of the quality of content that you put out there. In essence, the quality guidelines that HubPages follows, falls primarily inline with Google's guidelines. If the quality is high, you'll rank higher.

    Over the years, Google has been razing the Web and eradicating it of poorly-written content that adds no value. We've seen this with the algorithm adjustments such as Google Panda, Penguin, and Exact-Match Domains. Link farms, content farms, and other poor-quality content sites lost heavily during this period.

    If you want to get a high HubPages score, here is what you have to do:

    #1 - Write a Keyword-Centric Hub: No one wants to read a Hub (or any article anywhere on the Web for that matter) that veers off topic and goes on tangents. Stay the course and focus your content on a specific question, topic, or keyword.

    #2 - Write Lengthy Content - Your Hub should be at least 1000 words in length, while also staying on topic. If you just try to fill in words here, then your score will naturally decrease.

    #3 - Well-Written Content - The Hub must be well-written. It must provide an exceedingly-high amount of value. Don't just throw the Hub together. Ensure that it's well-researched and that you know what you're talking about.

    #4 - Ensure that it's Error-Free - You absolutely must not have spelling or grammar errors in your Hub. If you don't care about the overall appearance of the Hub, then you won't rank high. Check it three or four times if you have to, until there are no errors left.

    # 5 - Sectioned Content - Google and HubPages want content that's easy to read. You must section your content so that it's easy to read and understand. Use keyword-rich heading tags to ensure that people know what to expect in any given section.

    #6 - High-Quality Images - You can't just throw any image up there. Both Google and HubPages expect high-quality images. Don't find blurry images or images that aren't on topic. Find the right image and ensure that you have the right to use it.

    #7 - Share your Content - A very big part of the equation is the number of inbound links to your content. Share the content on other High PageRank sites such as Google Plus, Facebook, and Twitter.

    #8 - Few Outbound Links - Don't clutter your content with tons of outbound links. Have 3 or less links in your content, and ensure that they're relevant links. Having only one link would be the ideal situation.

    Hopefully this helps some of you out...

    Hello Everyone,
    I am a new Hubber; joined Hubpages just a few days ago. My idea of Hubscore is not that clear. what can be called a standard hubscore? How does Hubpages justify this factor. Does it matter for earnings?

    Till now, I have posted 2 hubs and scored between 70 to 85. How is it?

    Thanks & Regards.

    Even after the few years since this post was started, am still not sure how or what impacts the score. Any insights from the veterans here?

      No, we have no idea smile

      It's better to start your own thread than resurrect an old one.
