I am so much MORE than a "7"!! lOl! JK! But seroiusly, what's with the 7?
It's 7 out of a possible 100 points. That's your author score .
Hubscores are genreated by an algorithm through a series of IF-THEN arguments. IF you publish one hub a day THEN your hubscore will be x. IF your hubs have x number of views/comments THEN your hubscroe will be xx.
This little program was written by a human being using certain parameters, but that is as far as the human element is involved. If it is further involved, then we have a game of favoritism - or politics - take your pick.
To attach ANY part of one's self esteem to the tiny little number affixed to the corner of a 5k image is mildly delusional, to say the least.
Although, it is fun
Just write a few good, original, hubs.... and you will be high 80s or early 90s in no time....
You are protected by copyright for your work yes, although you have to pursue this yourself. Hubpages informs you when your content has been duplicated, and gives you a link to that content.... I havent had anything stolen from hubpages yet, which is good for the content thieves, as I dont mess about with going straight to adsense.
On the copyright issue, all original works -- no matter where they are posted or published -- are inherently copyrighted. If you actually do the legal paperwork mumbo jumbo to legally copyright something, all that adds is the ability for you to sue for additional monies should you decide to sue someone. (Learned that little tidbit from my ex-boss who was a magazine editor and twice published author.)
Keep writing orginal content and participate, and one more thing, on copyrights, as soon as it's one the computer and out of your head it's coyprighted.

Closely following on from GDPR, we have the "Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market" which goes to a vote in the European Parliament today. Strikes me that HubPages ought to be VERY interested in this given it proposes to make some fairly radical changes which will affect the...

1. Ignore the number of followers & internal views. 2. Ignore hubber and hub scores. 3. Write, write, write to build up a base of quality content.4. Write on low competition topics so views increase with time. 5. Stop promoting so much when you could be writing. It's a waste of time unless you...

I haven't tried to have a plagiarized page removed from Google search since the change to the niches. How do we prove ownership if we no longer have access to webmaster tools for our pages? My recent request was rejected on this basis:'Thanks for reaching out to us.It is unclear to us whether or...

I've hunted hither and yon and I've yet to find the page describing how HubPro editing changes our rights to our articles.Typical magazine article editing involves the editor fixing typos, rewriting a few sentences for clarity, cutting content, working with layout, and instructing the author to...
