      Start with a few reps using a 40 lb. weight. Just let it dangle from your big toe and swing it back and forth. Careful not to let it fall off.

      Then follow up with some wind sprints, but instead of the traditional kind, try elevator wind sprints. You can run back and forth inside an elevator really fast especially after hours.

      Do this for about three months or until facilities catches you. Good Luck!

      Like you I write things that are not of real interest to a lot of people.
      I made the mistake of posting a few lines of some of my hubs all over the net. Duplicate content will hurt a hub score. Two of my articles were Ehow retreads which I totally re wrote.
      My hub score has gone up lately.
      I have done two things.
      I rewrote the lines in my articles that I had cut and pasted all over the web.
      I tried to make each hub 500 words or more.
      Do not post your pages on a link farm or click exchange junk traffic will pull a hub score down really fast.
      You use the words “Microsoft Outlook PST corrupt” a lot in your hubs. These neither are not high paying keywords nor are they heavily searched.

      Bob, HubPages penalises you heavily if you use material already published elsewhere - even if you wrote the original yourself.  If that's your problem, the solution is to rewrite!

      New Hubs start with a low score and take time to build - so if you're publishing a lot of new Hubs, they'll all be in the lower range.  Patience.

      Some others have suggested your topics are too obscure.  I don't know if that's a bad thing - there must be other techies out there looking for answers!   Such subjects aren't likely to get you a lot of followers - however, followers are nice for the ego but do nothing for the hip pocket: the money will come from search engine visitors.

    Hello Bob,

    First of all, you need to remove any content that duplicates what is already on the Web. I put the following sentence from one of your hubs into Google and got 108 hits for that exact word sequence (used search term in quotation marks):

    "Most of the corruption issues encountered in Microsoft Outlook PST files occur due to power failure, not closing the application properly or Outlook errors."

    Your HP score drops if your hubs duplicate existing content.

    Secondly, the titles of your hubs are not friendly to the technologically challenged. I have no idea what most of them mean and therefore assume that the content would not mean anything to me either. I am guessing only a small number of people would understand enough to investigate your hubs further.

    Hi Bob,

    Within my short stint writing for Hubpages, here are my observations about hub score.

    1. everytime you published a new article, your profile score decreases
    2. everytime there is a comment in your hub, your hub score increases
    3. everytime you have an additional fan or follower, your profile score increases
    4. everytime your traffic increases, your hub score increases
    5. everytime your hub score increases, your profile score also increases

    I have read some of your hubs and it is too technical that it doesn't sound too interesting.  However, you can make use of your expertise as an IT Engineer by writing topics in laymen's term. Below are some suggestions or ideas you might possibly want to write:
    1. What to consider when you buy laptops or desktop?
    2. Basic troubleshooting of computers
    3. Latest computer trends such as the touch screen
    4. Brand name computers such as Apple, Dell, Compaq, etc.
    5. Latest computer software and its uses

    I have also observed that you have zero (0) comments in your hubs.  Perhaps, you can follow some other hubbers' hub and write comments too.  In the same way that they will also write comments to your hubs.

    I hope that my limited experience with Hubpages will also help you improve your hubs.

    Have a great week!

    Duplicates will definitely hurt your hubs.  I would suggest you read up on how to write good hubs before doing anymore damage to yourself.  You might want to consider just starting from scratch with a new profile because it'll be hard to go back and fix 80 some hubs that you haven't written.
