    Hi all!
    As you can see that my profile score is only 25 sad
    While I've published two hubs and they are both of score 55.
    It really sucks to have a profile score like mine sad
    Please any suggestions?

      Dear friend,
      i have looked at your hubpages and they are just too good for a beginner like you. Your hub score is probably low because-
      1. you might have had some hub pages earlier which were violation of           hubpages rules and regulation. If you have explicit material ads will be disabled. and hubscores will fall down.

      2- You might have hubs which are DUPLICATE content.

      3- You might be having broken links under your hubpages.

      1- Always use a specific title for your hubpage and tags must also be specific otherwise you will get warnings and hubscore will fall.

      2- Do not use images which are not family viewable

      3- Try to use many components such as videos links text and pictures.

      4- Try to make your hub more and more beautifull

      Have a good day

    I haven't looked at your hubs, but assuming they're composed of quality content, you just need to give your HubRank (or author score) some time. It's based on a number of variables that include number of quality hubs and interaction on the forums, comments on others' hubs, etc.

    I have seen that my author score / profile score rises quite noticeably when I participate more in forums and when people comment on my Hubs. 

    Having people comment is obviously something you can't control; however, when you participate more in forums, and when you read other authors' Hubs and comment on them, you become more noticeable and other people will read your Hubs and likely comment on them.

    You could post a link to one of your Hubs in the "Extreme Hub Makeover" Forum and ask for help with it.  Experienced Hubbers can give you good ideas there, and you will also be noticed more there.

    In the meantime, find some forum topics that interest you and spend a little time (but not too much!) in getting to know people and expressing your opinion. [Forums can be addicting and therefore could take away the time you have available to spend on writing and polishing your Hubs.] 

    Give yourself some time, as lrohner wrote.  Even when changes come to your scores, they are not often instantaneous.

      I've also seen it go down suddenly after being in certain forums and disagreeing with certain people, which makes me wonder if certain people might sometimes engage in little down voting vendettas with some of their nearest and dearest.  It has always recovered quickly enough, but I do wonder :-)

      But yes, generally speaking participation attracts new readers which can attract new fans, may even get you a Tweet or a Digg or a real organic backlink or two and otherwise is good for your digestion, your complexion and helps build strong bodies 12 ways.

    Sorry about that - I just now saw that you already have posted in Extreme Hub Makeover.

    Also, if you "Share" your Hub in Facebook, you are likely to get some traffic from there and that should raise both scores.

    It is all part of the reward.  The more you hub - the more you become hub loved with aurthorscore. 

    Want to know the secrets to hubscore and aurthorscore?  Here is the link to help you:

    Hubscore largely depends on traffic. My score for this account is 94 today. That's probably due to my having written a *very* popular hub.

      Sorry, I dont agree.  Traffic is just a small part of the algorithm.  There are some hubbers that have very little traffic but achieve great authorscores (there is a difference between hubscore and authorscore - I assume you are talking about authorscore?

      Misha (published 21 hubs) and Sunforged, for example, may have an authorscore of 92 but they are receiving greater levels of traffic than many others with the same authorscore.

      There are many pathways to authorscore and traffic is only one of many!

      p.s.. I bet hubpages love reading these posts as they are the ones who truly know the secrets!  I can't help chuckle to myself as I think of them chuckling at our posts! hehehe

        LOL  Wouldn't it be funny if all they're really doing is handing out random scores and then sitting back and watching everyone scramble? smile
