    Hi all,

    I'm new and just finished my second hub. My hubscore is only a 48, and I'm not sure if that is bad or good, but I'm guessing on a scale of 100, it's probably a "F". Do you think it needs an "extreme makeover" - what is it missing/what does it need for a higher score?

    Yo are doing a lot better than me. Welcome! It does take awhile to get the score up. I joined a few days ago and only have 7 fans so far. Maybe you can tell me what your secret is to get the fans within 24 hours. I have about 16 hubs ans my score is okay. It can be better though. Be patient, you will get it, eventually. Have fun.

    Your HubScore seems to have dropped further - by any chance, is the Hub a copy of an article you've already published somewhere else?  If it is, your score will be heavily penalised (and the Hub won't earn well either).  Hubs need to be original content.

    That aside, the Hub has potential.  Always split your text over several text capsules - it maximises ad placement and makes it easier to "tweak" the Hub later as you learn more.

    Photos are good - I would add another one or two, if you can.  However, you should always leave the top right hand corner free for an ad, it's the prime spot - so have your first photo floated to the right of your second text capsule.

    Nice Hub, I'm sure you'll do well here!

      Thanks for the feedback. When I look at my hub, the score appears to have risen (to 51). It isn't a copy of anything else I have published. I'll try to make some modifications, though, according to your suggestions. Thanks!

      Marisa, I have implemented some of your suggestions in my hubs, now my score has also increased.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the scores on your hubs right now as they are so new. And I wonder if those scores are contributing to your overall score? But get involved, start reading and commenting on hubs, asking/answering questions and you'll see your score start to rise.

    On the hubs, both have way too few tags and your hub on lifts for stairs looks too short.

    Other than that, welcome and great start!

      Thanks for your suggestions. I'll try not to stress to much about them for now, and just work on creating better hubs and reading and learning more from other hubs.

    Your hubs are pretty good, except the chair lift hub is definitely too short. I would add some info about some of the different option available, what is required to install the hair, etc. to flesh it out a bit.
