      As other posters have pointed out, your hubscore does not matter so long as it is over 75.  There are hubbers that place great importance on their hubscore and aspire to be as close to 100 as possible.  But these motives have more to do with wanting to be a part of the hubpages community than any practical utility to you.  Focus on getting over 75 (you are close already).  If you have been regularly publishing quality content, chances are your hubscore will pop over 75 without any change in your strategy.  Hubscore increases over time.  Otherwise the best advice I have is to keep publishing high quality hubs until you get over 75 (probably best to get your score to a little over 80 as a safety cushion).  By the way, I am making the assumption that you are using Hubpages as not only a source of revenue but also a source of quality backlinks to other sites.  If you do not have other sites, then your hubscore does not matter much at all.

        So I have skimmed a couple of your hubs, Birrelar.  You are obviously knowledgeable about your subject synchs with your career.  But work on improving the user experience of your hubs.  This will increase the score of each hub and will give you the extra boost you need to get your hubscore over 75.  I note that each of your hubs is quite short.  Try to have at least 500 words in each hub...700-1000 is even better.  Try to use some of the many capsules available, including video, picture, newsfeed, rss, amazon, and links.  Right now, the couple of hubs I looked at were all 1 capsule of text.

        Most important of all:

        - Some of your hubs are duplicates on articles found on Ezinearticles and several other sites around the Internet;
        - At least on of your Hubs are written in German. HubPages is an English only site.

        HubPages penalizes this kind of sub-standard content by lowering your author score. Until you have solved the problems, it is likely to remain below 75.

        There are a few things you can do.
        1. HubPages requires English-- One of your hubs is in German.
        2. Some of your English hubs use unusual wordings and unusual grammar.
        3. Duplicate content brings your score down, so if you have posted the same content on other sites, or if you have borrowed from other sites, your score will stay low.
        A quick Google search of the opening paragraph of four of your hubs shows that they are posted elsewhere.

        Edit: Sorry WE-- you called it first.

          No problem. Let's just say I said it first, you said it better.

          The OP must be taking an extended nap...

            Isn't it amazing how many of these questions we get from duplicators? I must say the German one did surprise me-- wonder if it was original?

              It is amazing - more often than not, the people asking these questions end up shooting themselves in the foot.

              The one in German was published on sites on the Internet (IT news sites) in October 2009.

      Most of the pro hubbers don't look at their hub score at all - it won't effect your traffic or earnings.

      Interacting on the forums and writing good quality content will increase it however.

        The OP would want the author score to be at 75 or above, as otherwise backlinks will be no follow, which could hurt traffic to external sites and earnings.

          I am new to writing for HubPages, so that is good to know.

      Not that my hubscore can talk, but interacting with the Hub-munity, and new fresh articles will certainly help. Providing content that is not cookie cutter will help over time as well.

      Write about things that you are sure people will read about, and possibly about subjects that people search for in search engines too, as you will come up in people's search results. Having a niche can be useful, but many people diversify into many subjects. I favour that method myself.

      Use the many different media that Hub Pages capsules offer you, photos, links, html, amazon, ebay, polls, and many more besides.

      There's a lot to be said for participating in the Hubs community too. People who see your link here, can click and go to your profile page, thus any of your hubs. So getting in the forums regularly will get you traffic within the Hub community.

      If you have a Blog or external website that can backlink to your hubs, that will help bring in external traffic, which will bring more people to Hubs overall. And improve your rating here.

      Use the advice left here by hubbers and you won't go wrong. Best of luck on Hub pages.

      Seems people just don't get it. Behind the OP's shiny facade there is an international corporation filling HubPages with duplicate, sub-standard content. This thread is just another example of the community being duped.
