I write a Hub and it is published. Within 24 hours I receive 26 comments and my score goes down. The Hub is only rated 74; how am I supposed to take this?
I also want Google ads removed from my writings since they disabled me with no discussion.
If the majority of the visitors have been HubPages readers its internal traffic, so it won't be the same quality as outside traffic.
Removing ads isn't hard. But you must fulfill the criteria of what is deemed a non-commercial hub.
Tell me how to do it. I will also write a Hub on it to inform others.
If you want to publish a hub on it you're better off figuring it out for yourself.
Harvey - as I posted on another thread.
If there were no Adsense ads on Hubs, HubPages would not exist. HubPages relies for its income on Adsense.
Disabling ads on your Hubs is therefore a self-defeating act.
I'm not asking everyone to do it. If one wishes to, I can't stop them. The people that have been unfairly disabled may wish to do this. That constitutues a small portion of Hub writers. If this is done on other sites also, Google might suffer.
It's an automated system and there's no personal aspect involved, so don't take it personally! If you want to write non commercial hubs it's quite simple. Just do as Oli explained.
I can imagine your frustration, but from my experience, I really do believe that even if countless readers within HP comment, 'external' traffic is the best way to raise that score...
Harvey, if you want to remove Google Adsense adverts from your page, then on NON COMMERCIAL pages, you can do the following.
GO to the Hub you want to change
Where it says 'Settings' at the top tehre is a box bellow it.
There are two Check boxes.
Untick 'This Hub May Be Considered Commercial'
Then go to the drop down list by Ads (Default set at High) and click None.
Click Done Editing.
And your hub should be advert free.
Remember this is only for non-commercial hubs, if you do this on commercial Hubs then you will be violating the Hubpages Terms of Service.

I attempt to try my best to improve my traffic and increase my earnings of Google Adsense, but it seems that I can still earn only a little per day. Do you have any tip and suggestion on how to get more traffic for your hubs at Hubpages?

I've been on here for 9 months and followed all the advice from the learning centre, forums and hubs from the best hubbers. I earned the first $24.00 in the first month and I'm only $1.00 ahead for the next eight. What am I doing wrong? All help will be greatfully received.
