How do you get people to rate your hubs? I'm getting the traffic, but no ratings. Yikes is my writing that bad?
By "ratings" do you mean the thumbs up/down, Sarra? Just so you know, we don't ever see how many thumbs up and thumbs down Hubs receive. HubPages used to show that info but so many authors got so hung up on that info, they no longer reveal those to us.
Not sure what you mean by ratings, Sarra? I had a look at some of your Hubs and they seemed to have a reasonable Hubscore and a few comments sprinkled around.
If it is comments you want, you will probably need to write about something a bit more contentious, or read lots of Hubs and leave comments yourself.
If it is Hubscore, well you say you have the traffic? The only thing that struck me that some of your Hubs (the Alligators one), are a little short (though I am one of those people who can never keep a Hub short, sharp anc concise!)
If you are here to make money, the fact that you are getting traffic is great, and you should write a Hub on getting traffic!
If you want a critique on a specific Hub, post it in the Extreme Hub Makeover Forum Thread.
I took a look at your hubs too and they seem like they have a decent initial score. It took me a few months to get a hub that scored higher than 75. The only thing you can do to get people to rate your hubs is just to throw in a tag line at the end of your hub "Please don't forget to rate this."
I think you'll find though that hubs will fluctuate randomly up and down quite a bit. Hubscore really isn't very important for individual hubs. If you're getting good amounts of traffic, that's the most important thing. Best of luck.
I think nanette111 has been popping up on varies topics today. best to ignore and report. And your hubs look fine to me.

I've been on HP since October 2015. I've written a fair number of articles. I understand I haven't been as active lately, but I am getting what might as well be no traffic. The only time I seem to get any traffic to speak of is when I am actively promoting my hubs, and even then it only lasts for a...

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 recommend to get a good score.It is disheartening not to get a feedback. For...

My favorite tip (currently) is to find related blogs on my hub article, post a nice comment, and use the url to my hub on that topic in the URL box for most blogs. Some do not have this facility so I have to think about what my comment is going to be so that it is valuable to the blogger! If I can...

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with writing here. I think I would still keep my account because I like the HubPages...
