    If a hub score is in the 60-70's does this mean you should stop writing?

    I suppose I wonder if it is  grade related A, B, C not very encouraging if this is the case.

    Don't know if you've ever seen this article, but you definitely should.  I couldn't find the article I really wanted that explained that hub scores in the 60s and 70s do not mean you should give up.  In fact there are apparently many hubbers whose hub scores are much lower than 60s or 70s.  So take heart, and study the article this URL will take you to.

    Be sure to click on the different items in the table of contents at the top because additional information worth knowing is included there.

      Read: It was very informative, I do better understand, however, SEO is foreign to me. I am thankful to see score is based more on activity and traffic in general. I haven't been active on hub recently as I was ill in critical state. Now back to it!

      There is also an interesting list of authors not published until after their death. https://mic.com/articles/62651/9-incred … .qUbPvc7DK

      Is score for individual articles on an account hub indicative of the writing. All of a sudden many of my hubs are going way down. I have been ill and have limited energy to keep up right now. I feel like i am watching my hub crash along with me. sad

      Thought you said you read the URL I sent you.  Click on "How is Hubscore computed," in that article.

      Sorry to be such a bother, and yes I read it. It appears since even writing this question my individual article scores have gone down. So, that is not necessarily like a grade for the article? Correct? I do edit and will get busy as soon as I can.

    Absolutely DON'T give up.

    How do you improve at anything? The first time you try anything you probably mess up. Try again. And again.

    Look at hubs that are in your same genre, find an author who has a "better" hubber score. Look at what they are doing and make some notes on how you can improve.

    Maybe you need to break up your text into manageable sections. Include a few photos (and they shouldn't be grainy or  blurry. Check spelling and punctuation (this is where a LOT of people have problems).

    Most of all, we aren't in this for the money; have fun. Write about what you are passionate about. Even the best major league baseball player strikes out more often then he gets a hit.

      Thanks and no worries I am not in it for money I am not much of a money kind of gal, however, if the lower score meant it is horrible writing I thought perhaps it means take a break. smile

    No. It's not something that necessarily reflects your writing. If you read further into this (there are numerous threads in the forums) you'd discover that most hubbers are not sure how the scores are given or what they mean. If anything, just go back and edit the stories or update them whenever possible. Just be sure that what you wrote is personally the best reflection of your ability.

      Thanks Dean I am beginning to better understand, yet, I feel I have a ways to go. The hubs people have shared on the subject are helpful. I have been checking them out. Have a great day smile
