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

My title should have read another hub author score question . I have noticed this hubber that puts up a lot of hubs, however, they are all very short, most less than 100-200 words. The type of hub that can be put up in less than 15 mintues. And, the majority of their individual hub scores...

I'm very happy with the results of the niche sites. It's a win-win for HubPages and writers like myself. But I'm a bit curious about the process for choosing Hubs that go on those sites.One of my most successful Hubs on a niche site has more than 1,250 words, multiple photos and an original video....

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

I have noticed that all of my hubs that contain affiliate links have now been marked as being in violation of the terms and conditions of hubpages.Hubpages must have forgotten to mention that affiliate links are now banned in the blog posts.Anyone else noticed this? - it has only just happened -...
