    How can I improve my hubscore?

    Hubscore is based on both quality of content and traffic, isn't it? If it is, then we have to work on both these 2 factors.

      I would have to agree. Good suggestion.

    You can improve your hubscore by writing quality content hubs and having links to increase the traffic of your hubs. Reading and commenting on other hubbers work can increase your hubscore, too.

    I have noticed that being an active participant on Hubpages helps as well.

    All the other answers you should keep in mind of course. And also being involved in the hubpage community.

    My hubscores fluctuates from day-to-day or week-to-week. While I don't know the exact combinations of components, I do know these factors are considered:
    Is your title searchable?
    Have you written at least 500 words?
    Did you include original or legally obtained photos?
    Does your content match your search. Are there keywords throughout?
    Is it laid out in an easy to use way?

    Finally, I believe the amount of views and comments are what pushes your score up, so monitor this and remain active in your hubs and with your followers. If you have a facebook, twitter, pinterest or any other website or social media account, post your hub there. You can say "This is my latest" or if you have written about something that someone you know can relate to, put it on their wall for their followers to see. You can also check out the tutorials and forums here at hubpages. They will not only help you improve your score but the more people that are aware of you, the more people that will see your hubs.Try this link: http://hubpages.com/forum/3
    I just hopped over to check out your hubs....and there aren't any? I'd be happy to read them if you put some back up there.
    Good luck!

    You have to publish a good amount of high quality content hubs, which means writing about a subject in depth, adding original text and images relevant to the subject, as well as incorporating other hub capsules such as videos, maps, tables, quizzes and/or polls. Hubs also need to be well written and nicely edited. Being active in Hubpages, commenting hubs, hub hopping, participating in forums and or answering questions also helps with a few points.

    Don't worry about your hubscore as it only means something within hubpages.

    My highest traffic hub from search engines has spent the last 18 months with a hubscore in the 70's despite thousands of pageviews yet I have hub's which have been in the 90's which rarely get into double figures and have had no comments on them.

    Write well on specific subjects that people are searching for and if you've done well google will let people read your work- that's more important than your hubscore will ever be.

      And if you get good advice from another hubber, be grateful and use it! Most established writers are only going to give you advice that will benefit you and help you grow!

    Get more active on Hubpages answering questions, create a forum, asking questions, commenting and learning from other people's hubs and go to the learning center.

    My best advice to you is to forget about the hub score and write.  Concentrate on quality, quality, quality and try to write in as many genres as you can so that you can expand you skillset and your base of readers.  If your writing is interesting, word of mouth will get that around to others.  Readers will share your articles and that exposure will expand expotentially.  A high hubber score really does nothing but satisfy the ego.  You can spend you energy far more productively if you really want to write.  Good luck! ~WB

      Excellent suggestion about writing in as many genres as possible to expand your base of readers.

    Hubpages is a community, not merely a showcase for one's own work.  Interacting with other Hubbers on their hubs and responding to them as they visit one's own is a factor.  Some days mine leaps up or down for no apparent reason.  My advice is to do what you're here to do - write! - and support your fellow writers here.  Focusing on scores is almost doomed to limit them & frustrate you, in my humble opinion. 

    Good luck and most of all - ENJOY your writing and associations on HP.  You'll certainly have no regrets if you do that - which outshines any number on the profile pic!  :-)

    It's down to the 'Holy Trinity':
    Quest: Do some research first, or know your subject - well-researched Hubs reflect on you and knowledge of your subject matter makes interesting writing;
    Quality: Good Hub-pages pull visitors, that means grammatically sound and complete with images/maps/diagrams/pie charts that illustrate your subject matter;
    Quantity: Longer Hubs make better reading, as long as they've been well written. Readers like something to 'get their teeth into', and it shows in your writing if you can write at length on a theme you feel passionate about.

    Definitely be more active within the community.  Answer questions, read and participate in the forums, write questions and hop some hubs!  Community interaction I've found to be a huge factor in your hubscore!

    First of all just forget about hubscore and just concentrate only on writing more and more.  Try to reach 100 hubs as early as possible.  Being engaged in the forum is a good tip to improve further.  Ask questions, give answers, help fellow hubbers any way you can, these all will improve your visibility as well help to top up your score.  Also find time to read other hubs and leave good comments.  Be patient, you will succeed.  Recently I had  published one regarding my one year successful hubbing.  Please read it as it will, I hope, boost up your confidence level.
