I read somewhere that you need a score of 75+ on a hub to gain any money from it, try as I might I cannot get to this number and when I think I might have finally cracked it my score falls off the edge of the world.
I have tried editing, adding polls, adding amazon links, back-linking and yet nothing works...
Why won't they get to 75 and if they do why do they drop to 60 when I haven't touched them?
Why would they score suddenly drop, is there a gremlin in HP that works tirelessly just to ruin our day? :p
Not true. You need a score of 75+ for links on your page to be "do follow", but that only matters if you're writing the Hub to promote another website.
HubScore is a reflection of traffic, among other things, so it is a bit of a chicken and egg thing - you need the traffic for the score to go up. So you might like to learn about promotion at places like SheToldMe and Redgage.
Things to check:
- Are your Hubs original? That means they ONLY appear on HubPages, nowhere else on the internet. If they're not original you'll never get the score to go up, no matter what you do.
- Are they long enough? Hubs should be at least 400 words long, and preferably much longer.
I recommend you read Darkside's Hub on Capsules, to learn how to float your photos and videos to the right so you get a more interesting layout. I also notice that in some of your Hubs, you have a lot of white space between paragraphs - the text capsule automatically gives you a space between paras, you don't need to add another one!
Hi there,quite a large amount of my hubs are no where over 74 and I am still making money with them. I think this has something to do with google and how they place ads or something. try tweaking some keywords or check out googles keyword finder here https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal#. Try to promote your hubs in various places to provide backlinks. the more traffic you can bring the better for your hubscore and the more money you will generate.
I agree with Super Chef. I have hubs under 75 that make money.
I'll second what Marisa said, and add that I think you need to have more diversity of content on your Hubs.
Here's more detailed advice on scores,
Thanks for the answers guys, I guess I was complaining for nothing after all, it is just confusing you know? To see your hard work get to 85 or so and then plummet into the murky depths of 50 for no apparent reason :p

Earlier I posted that people should go and make links going to other sites that do not belong to you nofollow. Then someone mentioned that if your hubber score is less than 85 then "every link" will be nofollow. But this is not what HubPages says. HubPages says:"If your HubberScore...

I looked at my hub scores today and cried. They have been falling steadily for two weeks from 70's & 80's to 60's and 70's with one 59. Today, one of my hubs has fallen to a 50. HP is sending me mixed signals. I am told to write in a niche that I am passionate about with...

I posted a number of hubs the other day, which all started out at a relatively low score as they usually do--somewhere in the 40s and 50s. I saw my score drop a point or two, which I would normally see. Since then, the hubs have been steadily rising into the 60s, 70s, and 80s, which is also normal...

Who are the top hubpage earners and what is their secret?I read a few hubs that described the top hubpage earners but I think it was from last year or so. Who are the top earners now and what are the main reasons for their success?

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...
