How can I tell where my hub is weak?
You feel you wrote a good hub but the score is low...how can you figure out what is wrong with it or what's missing?
The site moderators and various Hubbers have posted great tips brink proving your hubs. Do a search for 'flagship hubs,' 'raising your score' and a few other terms. Check your spelling and look for grammar errors (there are good hubs on that as well).
Do your topics appeal to a wide audience or a narrow group of people? Hub hoppers are not likely to rate 'up' on an article with limited appeal, so it may take a while to get a higher score. All hubs take time before their scores go up.
Check for readability - do you have paragraph breaks and section (capsule) breaks, with photos added to attract the reader? I've seen some great writing buried in hard-to-read hubs that needed a boost for visual appeal.
Best of luck - you'll do it!
Almost all hubs start out with a low score, so don't be put off it's a problem with hubs as you publish them. They go up rapidly over the first few days after you've published them as they get traffic from the "Latest" section and the hub hopper and people rank them.
If it's a long standing hub with a low score, then it's likely to be down to low traffic, so all you can do is try to increase traffic, with external links, such as from forums, etc.

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

I have written a pro-president Trump hub. I wrote it in the weeks after the election but before the inauguration. it is interesting to see how my predictions are turning out. The hub is entitled "No joke! 50 Ways Donald Trump will make America great...

To satisfy my own curiosity, I would like to know why one of the hubs that was transferred from Squidoo, has such a low "hub score". I have gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, and cannot figure it out. It currently has 11,945 words, many photos, and is - in my opinion - informative....

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...
