    Hello.  I am new.  I read some directions and wrote a Hub.  Forgive me if I ask questions that should have been answered in the instructions.  I have done nothing to promote my hub because it is not monetized yet, and I do not yet understand the site.  My articles generate between 600 and 53,000 readers, and most are in the range of 2,000.  Before I publicize HubPages as the new place where I write, I need more information, please.

    1.  I chose the name "Mary Neal on Hub."  Will all of my hubs fall under that name, or is that the title of the one hub I wrote?

    2.  When I signed up for, eBay, and Kontera, I got widgets to use to monetize my hub.  I expected to get a code to use

    3.  The number 58 appears "Mary Neal on Hub."  What does the score of 58 mean - what/who determines a score?  Is ea. hub scored separately, or does the score apply to the writer?

    4.  The number 10 appears at my photo on my published hub.  What does the no. 10 mean?

    5.  When signing up with sites like eBay to monetize my hub, which link do I give them for advertising at my HubPages?  Do I use -

    6.  Kontera, eBay, and Amazon sent me long codes for my website template.  What do I do with these codes to monetize the hub?

    7.  Will I need to post those codes on each hub I publish, or is there a way for the codes to automatically post when I publish a hub?

    8.  Google ads are appearing on my hub.  Why is that?

    Thanks in advance for your prompt response.

    You have named your first hub, Mary Neal on Hub. Your username is Mary Neal which is says on your profile. You should change the title to what your article is about. Unfortunately, it's too late to change the URL. Each hub is a separate article.

    Try reading through this, it should answer your questions:

    If not, also try the help button which is on the top right of every page.

    You've asked a lot of good questions.

    The best way to understand HubPages and come up to speed is if you do a bit of homework, here's what I suggest:

    1) Read the FAQ
    2) Read this stickied thread from the "Need Help? Ask Here" subforum
    3) Use the search function on the forum. Someone else would have come across the same problems as you have and the answer is already available.
    4) Read some 'how to hub' hubs.
    5) Read the link that Uninvited Writer has provided.

    A warm welcome to hubpages! Although it seems a little daunting at first you will soon get used to what it's all about and you can't go far wrong if you listen to these two and others, they know the drill. Good luck!

    Most of those are answered in the FAQ.  The numbers on your avatar and on the pages you create are your hubbers rating and your individual hub scores.  These go up as your posts (and you) age and as more people view them.  The initial rating is based on the quantity of the content you posted, and various other mysterious factors. 

    Your personal hub score is based on the overall score of your hubs, and how active you are both in hub creation and interaction within the community.  As far as all the specific codes, I only have experience with Adsense personally.  In that case the Ads are inserted automatically into each of your posts.  I think with some of the other choices you have to set the place and type of ad you want, but again I don't have first hand experience with anything but Adsense.

    My advice would be to just get started writing content you enjoy and know about.  Ask for feedback and information as you go and improve your hubs if needed.  Then again I am relatively new also, so take my advice for what its worth. =p
