Two weeks, and ten hubs in...

    Hey Everyone,

    I've been writing now for a few weeks, and would love to get a little constructive feedback. If you've got the time I would love to hear from you about what you think, or improvements I could make. I've got some hubs in the high 70s, and others that hover in the 50s and I'm not really sure what the difference is between the two. Also, I really just want to improve my writing in general, and turn out some really high quality hubs.

    Thanks so much for your time,

    Laura

      Don't beat yourself up over a hub score. Some have suggested that there may even be some randomness designed into the ranking system. I don't have a clue if that's true, but I do know that if you're looking to make a buck, all that matters is how many people click on your ads.

    I've read your Korean cultures hub, and I think it's brilliant. Great photos, good placements of them next to text, and really well-written.

    The only thing I might add would be a link or two, if I could find a relevant one in English.

    Hubs start off at 40 to 50 score, and it takes a while (and a number of viewers) for them to rise.

    Thanks everyone!

    I really appreciate the feedback.

    LondonGirl : I will try to find a few good English links. That's a great suggestion!

    Lgali: Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.


    I was reading in the forum yesterday, and someone said that most of their hubs start at 70 when published and go up from there pretty quickly -- unless there was something wrong with them. I guess it had me a little freaked out.

    If you think of anything else, please let me know!

    Thanks,
    Laura

    Hi Laura smile welcome to HubPages. It's been said that if you let your Hub sit a day or two the score will rise. Let it *steep* like a tea? wink lol .

      Thanks Dame, for the welcome, and for the calm down. I guess I am a little impatient. I'll try to let them steep and see what happens!

      Update: Letting them steep has totally worked. I even let a hub steep without publishing right away, around 36 hours while I finished it, and it was in the 60's just now when I published it. Thanks again for taking the time to write and give me advice.
