How do I get a higher score for a hub?
If the score for each hub is based on how long someone stays on the hub you post, how do I keep someone on the page if the poem is a short one?
I don't write poetry per say, but your hub score is derived from content and a good variety of module use. The score will rise as you get visitors, but a lot of that activity comes from your activity in the community, such as this.
The learning center is a good place to get some specifics on those modules that hub pages equates to a good hub. your poem may be short but you could add some other text pictures and tables with related information that may make for a better experience for any viewer. Everyone likes pictures, hub pages prefers you to use your own, but if your use someone's picture make sure your name the source.
There are a lot of tools that will help your hub scores and your profile score, some that I have started using are inter-linking your hubs and the title tuner. Go to hop some hubs to learn how to interlink, this is a good traffic source as well as the title tuner, it suggests words to add to your titles that can bring more traffic.
Just some thoughts, anyway, hope this helps. Blessings:
To be honest, poems won't probably attract as many readers as other types of hubs. That said, add images that you've taken, break the paragraphs to keep it interesting, format it well, and try to give the audience some interaction (maybe a poll, maybe a question before the comments section.)
There are a lot of variables to this question. The hubscore depends on the content quality, the content size, use of the capsules judiciously,the reader traffic to name just a few.
As rajan jolly said, the score of a hub is not determined by just how long viewers stay on the hub. The amount of content the hub has plays a vital part in a hub score.
A great way of getting a higher hub score, is to follow the guidelines of a contest which was once held on HubPages. All the Hubs which met these guidelines had a HubScore of 85-100, which is fantastic in my opinion so why not try it out!?
The contest involves each Hub to have:
At least 1,000 words. (high quality, not just some random dribbling on about something you don't even care about.)
A map or table capsule.
A high quality video capsule.
At least 5 photo capsules. (all belonging to you)
Try this out and see if it works for you! I know that the one or two hubs of my own which I tried this on, they all had the best rank out of all the rest! Good luck!
From all the Hubs I've published, my poems score the worst. I mainly think it has to do with the answer DrSpaniel gave here.
At least the 1,000 words and high quality content! Poems can be high quality indeed, don't get me wrong but getting people to read your Hubs is more than just writing poems.
I believe it takes a lot of effort anyway to prepare a Hub, write it and publish it. It takes me a week at least and I'm always walking around with my notebook and pen.
Writing a great Hub I'd say is not enough...adding all the necessary pictures, videos, amazone products and maps, take a lot of time, but will definitely get you a higher score! Good luck!
There are many factors that contribute to our hubscores, though we don't exactly know what they are but we know it has something to do with the quality of your content not only the length. Traffic and positive comments and feed back can also help. These we need to improve.
Try to make longer poems or write an introduction about your poem, like what inspired you to compose that poem and what is all about it. You can also make a conclusion that will let your reader stay a little bit longer.

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...

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total...

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...
