Low hub and author scores. Why?

    maybe this should have been part of my post about hub traffic, but it was prompted by another post. Sorry if it's an improper duplication.

    My author's score is on 53, that's down from high-70's, and my hub scores are all under 70. Are my hubs just crummy? What can I do to raise these scores.

    ps. I am on hubpages almost daily so it shouldn't be from lack of activity

    Is your content original?

    I just had a look at your ebay hub, looks fine to me.

    I think that you could make better use of tagging, I can recommend a hub for that. I just redid the tags on all of my hubs, and saw a huge improvement in hubscores.

    I will go and find the URL now.

    I recommend reading this one first: http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubpages-Traffic-Use-of-Tags

    And then this one afterwards:

    Thanks for the links folks. I appreciate your response and will use the links.

    Although you are not linking to the same domain more than twice on your Hubs, they do all link primarily to the same few places.  This can bring down your HubScores overall, as it can be considered a surreptitious way of building landing pages.

    Question - are any of your Hubs copies of articles you've already published elsewhere?  That will cause your score to tank, big time.

    Some hubs of a high interest nature will have lower scores, that might be part of the reason.

    Relache - Thanks for the comment, the links issue was a problem. I wasn't aware of the "snowball" effect of the links. I have deleted most of the links, but it appears that maynot be the only problem.

    Marissa - that's a good point. The hubs aren't dupes, but some are similar content to some of my other online content articles. I'm beginning to get the gist of hubpages "originality" purpose.

    Thranax - you're right about saturation. I need to choose my categories better.

    Thanks all for your contributions
