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.
i have the same question , some time its unfair , they unpublish ur hub , and asked u to revised ur hub and never give u an answer ( why they did it ) .with me they don't let me add new hub , unpublish my 8 hubs , no one can see it now , and where to find help ????
One thing you can do is post a link to your Hub in the Extreme Hub Makeover forum: http://hubpages.com/forum/23
Other users can give you valuable feedback based on their own experiences!

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is...

Why do you think the hub with the highest score was scored higher than your others? Interested to know.

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...

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...

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...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...
