      Only write original work - if you use articles that are already published elsewhere, your score will always stay very low.

      Write about what you know, in good English, and provide good quality information.

    Welcome to HubPages!

    The following links should help you to understand.

    It actually seems to me to be absolutely random, but I think by actually participating in the community and writing hubs that people actually read it can help...

    One day I hope to get 98+

    Much more important than a number that changes with the wind are hubs and contributions that actually help people I think, doing that is harder than it at first sounds though when everyone is preoccupied with digits lol

    Having original hubs I think will help loads, and I don't just mean original writing...I mean those that you just will not find anywhere else. Those are the kind I read :p

    Write things that people want to read that you yourself have already grasped.

    Each hub should stay on point.

    You have a hub titled "earn money online using hubpages and google adsense" which has some seemingly random Amazon products thrown in, there is no clear connection between those products and the point that you're making. And the image you've used is inappropriate.

    Forget about your HubScore. That improves when you've done the right things. Concentrate on doing the right things.

    When I was new(er) here like you, I have asked myself the same thing among many other things.

    And here is what I have gathered from my readings:
    How is HubScore computed?
    HubScore takes into account many factors and will change over time as data about its performance continues to stream in. It will also fluctuate quite a bit, seemingly at random, and that is nothing to worry about. The most important HubScore components that you should be concerned with include:

    *Amount of traffic
    *The reputation of the Hubber
    *The response of readers to your hub
    *The uniqueness of content

    We reserve the right to change the factors used to assess a Hub’s HubScore as we continue to determine those that measure a great Hub. The bottom line is if you write original, useful content, your HubScores will reflect the quality and work you've put into them.

    As you can see you have to do many things right in order to achieve your goal of a higher hubscore and in many ways, you can't hurry it up as it will take time. Godspeed.

    Since I am new myself, I hesitate to criticize your work.   And really, you have asked not about your articles, but rather about your hubpages score. 

    In my humble opinion, you need to concentrate on Quality.  It is more important to focus on quality at this point than any other part.   Once you have good quality hubs, you can then focus on other aspects of hub scores.

    I read 7 of your hubs.  I found them by and large to be problematic with grammar and other writing conventions such as capitalization and use of punctuation.  I make some of these mistakes myself and for the life of me, I cannot figure out how I missed some of them, they are so obvious.  It is important to clean these errors up, if I can see them, then so can a lot of others.

    Of the 7 hubs I read, the only one that seemed to have great content was the "who is the Obama of India" one. 

    A series of photos that appear to be 'Walmart of the day' photos and leave the reader wondering, "What was that all about?"

    Since I really don't know anything about how scores are calculated, I can only tell you that I work on quality first, I wait a couple of days before I publish, I re-read and ask someone else to read, and then I publish.  I go back to my hub in a day or so and read every word.  Any error I find, I correct immediately.

    Wishing you well and hope you can raise your hub author score rapidly.  Good luck!

    Also I don't think that feedbacking that your own hubpages are so totally awesome and beautiful when they are in fact, well...crap.

    Leave the feedback for other people to choose whether to give, otherwise you will simply end up flagging yourself I think.
