What is your average hub score?
I know this could be a bit of an invasive question for some people, but I'm genuinely curious. Mine is quite low and I was wondering if that's normal?
I believe the hub score is determined by the amount of traffic a hub gets from readers. If a hub is read by a lot of interested readers, then the hub score goes up. If it does not receive a lot of traffic, then the score drops.
Consequently, you should write a hub that is interesting and well-written. If the score remains low, that would indicate something is not normal.
Try to spice up the hub if possible and make sure its grammar is correct. Read the hub to yourself and see if you could make any improvements.
Thank you for asking & the opportunity! Personally I believe much can be learned from many & less. Observation at your profile there is a great beginning with opportunity. Congratulations! You have a great adventure before you – Learning, authoring, writing content & more. I believe curiosity is wise many times. Also, I am empathetic. At times much can be from many and less too.
My answer is, IMHO, proposed are two key elements with comparison. An Average Hub Score typically is 70. ‘Normal’ I feel varies & is individual centric. There is difference with focus too. I tend to be at that average with all my Hubs, but herein enter ‘normal for me’. There are two distinct categories with the Hub Score – Informational & Creative, with their criteria, (See Following). I have a higher historic average with my Creative Hubs.
Short Story: Once I wrote near 200 Hubs over 3 years. My focus changed. This year I took hiatus from writing. I also assessed and diagnosed my Hubs Score performances and traffic in both categories seeking discovery while continued reading. I decided to begin anew as is seen at my profile. (Subplot: Traffic is a New Topic to explore later seeking discoveries) A moral to this story may be discovering strengths then build on those while seeking & discovering more.
Personal sharing . . . how I am doing that with ‘my New adventure’ with my Hubs on the drawing board is focusing on the ideal Hub. However, I realize experience helps. Personally I have a tendency to over explain evidenced with hubs nearing 3000 words.
Discovered at the Learning Center an ideal Hub is "A 'minimum of 1150' words of truly informative, well-written, useful content". Those four elements I consider today while know there is prudence with each.
Further shared worth study is:
Determining a Hub Score → http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/hubs … d_13970187
The ideal Hub is known as a 'Stellar Hub’ → http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Elem … tellar-Hub . . . that is used for the QAP process.
The two main categories – informational & Creative, have different scales for rating a Hub. They both focus on three main elements; Substance, Organization & Grammar / Mechanics → http://hubpages.com/help/hub_hop_table#informational
Hints: Editing a Hub after published offers incremental change. At times better may be a new Hub approach using the same topic & main elements offering a greater Initial Score.
Have fun, fun, fun . . . as best as can be :-)
Thank you so much for the detailed response!! This is really helpful!! I guess I'll try to aim for a score of around 70 from now on.
Your Welcome. Again, you have a Great Start! Writing Internet Articles is a big universe of its own. The Learning Center is packed full of information. I have a saying that helps me, "No Pressure . . . Have fun, fun, fun as best as can be".

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...

It is advantageous to delete one's own low scoring hubs that have little traffic. I figure getting rid of the low score would increase the average of the rest of one's hubs.What do you think?

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 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...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...
