    I need to step up my hubscore. What are the strategies

      I actually wrote up a nice hub on this topic. We aren't allowed to post links in the forums, but I can tell you that it's in my profile if you want more details.

      The gist of it is to write quality hubs, only follow hubbers you have a real interest in, create unique content (not duplicates that can be found elsewhere), and spend some time in the forums. smile

      Well it seems duplicate content is the culprit here.  if you would have read the TOS you would know that you get heavily penalized for dupicate content.

      Just to make my self clear I said duplicate.  I am not accusing you of stealing someones elses work but I checked several of your hubs and each one came back with duplicate content.

      people who try and get away with it end up with the type of score you are dealing with.

      I suggest you go back and fix the hubs with duplicate content and from now on take more time to write original content

        To elaborate a bit more on what Dale said ... even if you own the content elsewhere it's seen as duplicate content if you copy the material and place it here.

        Your best bet? If you own the material, totally rewrite it as a new article to place it here ... OR (and this is a really cool idea) write a unique hub RELATED to your other article then put a link in your hub to your other article - or visa-versa. smile

    Participate & open your profile only once in a day (never open hubs keep a copy of them offline) except 'My Accounts Tab'.

    I am unable to do that what I'm writing here, that's why I never reached upper than 85 score.

      words can express how dumbfounded I am by this obnoxiously absurd advice

      why bother answering something you do not know the answer to?

      Audreveaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Why can't you open your own hubs? How would you improve and edit them without opening? And how would you respond to comments??

      I'm in my own hubs all the time -  like an obsessive narcissist (but really just to shine them up).

      1. itech profile image74
        itechposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        you can review as many a time offline & whenever you want to edit, you can go to 'my accounts tab' & can click on edit option.
        This will also protect your adsense account from getting false impressions.
        & I think hubpages staff's algorithm of deciding hubscore may be,
        I know but I cant disclose my views.
        Sorry\

          Itech, take a look at my Hubber score.  I open my own Hubs all the time.  Does that punch a hole in your argument?

    I should have used a quote box, was responding to post before mine. (will fix)

    Maybe just on to much coffee, but there really is a lot of really bad and unfounded advice rolling around today

    BTW - how does Adsense / HP weed out the times you open hubs yourself from the true numbers?

      uhh! thats nonsense, nobody cares if you visit your own hubs. The goal is to have so many visitors the dozen or so times you visit are inconsequential

      but if they did care, everyone can track you by your Ip address in the server logs

    write about something that interest you... interest your friends and family.... once you start its not hard, just do it from your point of view..  I never knew I would write about love and relationships until i joined Hubpages........be amazed what you can write about when you put your mind, and fingers to it..

    try writing interesting hubs that tend to get traffic and also attention from other hubbers.Once you have published few good hubs,the hubscore might increase.

    Having duplicate content keeps your score down, it isn't original. smile

    Your pics are the same and it doesn't represent what you are writing about.

    I've been searching the forums for this somewhere in a Q&A so I appreciate you posting. My author rating just keeps sinking lower and lower and I don't know why. It's very frustrating.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image98
      Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I'm guessing you're using articles that you've already published elsewhere?  Duplicate content, even if it's your own work, is heavily penalized on HubPages.  Hubs must be original and unique.

      You're confusing Hubs with the forums.  The forums are a place for Hubbers to chat.  You will get some traffic through the forums, but only from other Hubbers.  That may get you some comments and be good for the ego, but it's outside traffic that will really help your HubScore and your earnings.

    1. create interesting and informative hubs
    2. take part in forums
    3. post wherever you can
    4. get traffic to your hub by choosing good topics
    5. get ppl to comment on your hub

    guess that should help big_smile
