Does it bring your hub score down having lots of bullet points?

    Does it bring your hub score down having lots of bullet points?

    I'm currently writing a hub that has lots of tips and wanted to check if having lots of bullet points instead of block text can bring your score down? Or do you believe it's easier to read?

    I don't think so. I have hubs with bullet list and it has not brought down my hubscore in any way. It is definitely easier to read online.

    Not too sure however I do scan hubs I read and bulletpoints help me get the essential bits of what I'm reading, so I think they're a good idea.

    Bullet points are easier to read and "scan" as that is the way people consume online content. In fact, an article with bullet points can even do better than an article that does not have bullet points. And in the end, the HubScore is just a number - all that matters is whether the content is being viewed and whether you are making money from it.

    I am not sure but i think that having bullets didn't down your hub score.

    I get turned off reading articles, on the Internet or in print, with sidebars and bullet points, I mainly like to see text broken into paragraphs, each tip having its own par with no point or alpha/numeric notation.

    i do not think so, I also use a lot of bullet in my writings when I need to discuss several points

    I can't imagine that hub score could be brought down by something so innocuous as many bullet points in an essay. I would be very surprised if it could.

    Bullet points are good. They break up the text nicely, give the eyes something different to look at, somewhat, especially if the hub is fairly lenghty, I should think.
