Why is my hub score so low? So I have like 53 featured articles. 90% of those are in LetterPile. They are all good articles. I participate in forums. I leave people to feedback on the articles if I enjoyed them. Any idea what the problem is? Thank.
Hi, Nicoartz. I don't know what the problem is. I have a couple of guesses, but I may not be right.
One possibility is that although you've written over fifty articles, you haven't written as many words as might be expected because most of your articles are short poems. I enjoy reading them, but they don't contain many words. I don't know whether this is a problem for other people who write only poems here. Some people add background information or other relevant facts to their poetry articles, which makes them longer.
The other possibility I'm more uncertain about because I don't know what your traffic is like. Even though most of your articles have been switched to a network site, poetry may not receive much traffic.
I hope you find a solution for the problem.
I'm new here. Do you think poets are welcome at HubPages? I mean, do people really read/appreciate poems/poetry hubs here? I used to write them once.
Yes, people do read and appreciate poetry hubs here. I do myself! Poetry is certainly welcome. Adding extra items like an interesting photo, video, or paragraph may boost interest in a poetry hub. Getting an income from poems may be a problem, though.
Thanks very much, Alicia for the reply. I have in fact been working on some SEO content for my hub. They will obviously have a higher word count. So it will be interesting to see if they affect the score. Thanks again.
I'm going to be harsh here. However good your poetry is, it's not what HubPages wants. If your intention is to write poetry that hardly anyone is going to read, then carry on. However, if you want to improve your hubberscore and earn four figures (and beyond) a month, then you have to write the kind of articles that attract search engine traffic.
People want to read articles that answer questions or expand their knowledge. That means a well-constructed article of 1000 - 1500 words, written in good to excellent English.
Thanks for the reply, Bev. I'm familiar with what Google wants. I'm kinda a pro at getting people sites on the first page of Google search engine. I am planning on releasing some great SEO content soon. I make site for businesses. But I make some for me too. The websites that I made for my self actually already very good make money from Adsense. Here's one of my sites mypecs.com. It a free site I made, all the images I drew as well. All originals stuff. It for kids with autism and communication disabilities. It gets like 100,000 visits a day. So I know what in doing when it comes to Google and making money. I know I need SEO content to make money. I just figured hub pages would be a good outlet for my poems and art. But I'm kinda a perfectionist I don't like my low score. Haha. It will be interesting to see if my new content helps.
I worked on thousands of website projects and SEO content. Should not be a problem to get my score up them. Thanks everyone.

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

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 hub count is now way down, so that instead of 10 more hubs to 100, I've now got to...

To satisfy my own curiosity, I would like to know why one of the hubs that was transferred from Squidoo, has such a low "hub score". I have gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, and cannot figure it out. It currently has 11,945 words, many photos, and is - in my opinion - informative....

Why do poems even though well written have a low hub score?Poems are not really lengthy and most poems carry less than 1250 words. Why don't poems have a different rating than a regular article?

I worked really hard on SEO and cleaning up my capsules and a little bit upon promotion. I removed poor performing hubs - about 10% - close to 30 hubs. Now my traffic is through the roof - higher than pre-Panda but my Hub Score is in the tank which tells me I must be missing something.Can an expert...
