    Can anyone please take a look at my hubs and give me some insight. Highest score was 78 now they are falling. I have 6 hubs none higher than 73 and most in low 60s.

      Thanks for the info.   I will check out the capsules hub and see how to use them better. The word count is over 400 on all of them and a couple of them are upwards of 800 words so that shouldn't be the problem. I will keep orking to improve them.

          Kenrick, that's not really necessary, because if your Hub is copied somewhere else, HubPages will let you know - you'll get warnings on your Statistics page.

    They look too short, for one thing.  They seem to have more content than they really do, because you have all the capsules one after the other.

    I know I keep posting this link in the forums but there's a good reason - every new Hubber should understand how to use Capsules:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/capsules

    Split your text up over several capsules and float your photo and Amazon/eBay capsules to the right of the text capsules.

    If you can't write 400 words, don't write a Hub.  As Nelle Hoxie has just posted on another thread, her high-earning Hubs are a lot longer - from 800 to 1,500 words.

    They must also be original content - and I mean unique to Hubpages, not one of your own articles that you've already published elsewhere.  HubPages penalizes duplicate content, even if it's your own.

    Longer hubs and more elements of them help. Also factors like traffic go into the score. You only been here for 3 days, I had a hub that stayed at 67 jumped to 92 then now averages around 73. Most hubbers ignore hubscore to some extent because no one know the exact way there monitored.

      ..and also, Hubscore doesn't have any impact on your earnings.

    construct the hub as you would like to view an article yourself. Be critical of it and try and improve it by taking a step back as if you hadnt written it.  It might be a good idea to revisit them after a day or two so you can see with fresh eyes.  Hope this helps x

      I was wondering if someone could view my hubs. I am at 92 with 19 hubs on it but hardly any comments or not many followers. Not complaining too much I am at 92 but what are hubs without readers? I read other peoples hubs as well as comment, I continue to add but my score will fall before it will rise. Would like to know what to do from here. Thanks in advance.

        No one reads my articles either. If I had the slightest idea what I was doing that'd be cool. I just like to write.
        I just read your "Rambling thoughts", which is good because it really spoke to my current situation.

        But I agree with some of the others to a point, if you are making some money with your hub, what difference does the score make? But at the same time, it is nice to get a pat on the back every once in a while, too.

        Lisa - first of all, don't post a link to yor profile or Hubs in your signature, it's not allowed at HubPages. 

        If you want Hubbers to give you feedback, start your own thread in Extreme Hub Makeover with links to just a couple of your Hubs. 

        Bear in mind that comments generally come from other Hubbers. Once you've been here a few months, you'll discover that Hubbers are a drop in the ocean compared to the readers you get from outside HubPages (who are the ones that earn you money, too).

    I think the hubs themselves are written quite well. The titles are what made me not really want to read them.

    "Why is Tiger Woods Hiding" should be "Why Tiger Woods is Hiding"

    A title that is a question makes it seem like you don't really know what you're talking about. If you ARE asking your audience a question, you should put a question mark behind it.

    Otherwise, your hubs are excellently written.

      alessia, thank you for your feedback. I try to write in such a way that it is easy to read and understand. I guess your assessment of the title on some makes sense. I am trying to make my hubs to serve multiple purposes. One I want to write and share information. I like the interaction and I enjoy helping people anyway I can. The second is to add a little extra income, this is where the title and keywords come in and I just haven't figured it out yet. I had an article I put on Associated content that is very similar to one I wrote for here and it made 1st page of google for it's key phrase. Hubs just aren't getting that recognition for me here yet.

        Well, you seem to be an excellent writer. I'm pretty new here myself, but have noticed that being active in the forums gives me an average of 1 new follower per day.

        It's too early.  Hubs seem to take a while to work their way up the rankings, but once they get going, they do well.  Wait three to six months and you may get some nice surprises!

    Fanny thing how scores are being calculated on H/P

    I saw a 92 score for a person that has 3 hubs (2 of which are about food cooking) and has been on H/P for less than 1 month

    I also saw scores of 74-76 for very active hubers with over 180 hubs in 5 months.
    All of them well written (I do not much care for the point of view expressed), but I have to admit they are great read, informative, over 800-1200 plenty of videos, etc.

    So what is the criteria for calculating scores?!

    Who cares!!!!!!!!!

    The scores have not really been my concern. What i am currently concentrating on now is to create more quality hubs and then drive traffic to them
