    How to increase my hubsore and the hubsore of my hubs?
    I have attended hubpages for several weeks. And my hubscore was high in the beginning, but now, it sharply went down. I am quite confused about this point. Could you give me some advice on how to increase my hubscore? Thank you in advance!

      Hi there!

      To increase personal hubscore, one of the way is to be constantly active in forum and posting articles. It is more to your activity score. It is normal to go up and down from time to time.

      As for your hub score, I would say normally it is affected by traffic and even people commenting and voting for it.

      Again, it is normal for it to fluctuate from time to time.

      Hope this helps in general smile

      To increase your hubscore, you just need to be active in hubpages and the forums. Try to post more hubs frequently along with posting commments on other hubs.

      Hub scores will go up naturally, so long they are quality hubs that is generating traffic, comments, etc.
      Your hub score will decrease if you do nothing. Be active on the forums, answer questions, leave comments, most importantly produce more hubs. You will find your personal hubscore increases quicker than you think. In only 4 weeks I am up a 91 already smile

        This may be true generally, but will not work in the OP's case where there is copied and foreign language contents.

    Here is the best information, without posting a huge post. wink big_smile

    Darkside wrote some hubs about HubPages.

    Take your time reading them. smile

    Your hubs are duplicates - or slightly changed versions - of articles found multiple places around the Internet. HubPages penalizes such sub-standard content, and until the problem is solved your author score is likely to remain below 75.

      I don't know tho, my scores were above 80 and now they are below or averaging 60, so is "duplicates" the only reason, as my aren't. ?

        You are talking about the hub score, I was talking about the author score. Your author score is 92, the OP's is 60.

        Duplicate content is the biggest reason for a low Hubscore.  Remember duplicate means copied from somewhere else on the internet even if the 'somewhere else' was also written by you..

        Otherwise, try posting a couple of your low-scoring Hubs over on the Extreme Makeover thread and maybe we can spot what the problem is?

        Lrohner, I think Hubsore is what you feel when you've been sitting down writing Hubs for too long.  Or is that Hubnumb?

          That might come from reading too many hubs in one sitting... lol wink

      Sound advice Website E.  Personally I don't pay much attention to scores.  I just blast out whatever I'm holding in my head at the moment and let the chips fall where they may.

        What specifics get high ranking hub scores on articles?  I am not seeing the pattern.  I spend time on my articles and some get a score of 70+.  Do brand new hubs typically start low?  Thanks!

          They usually start out around 50. Traffic is more important than anything else. People rating them up or down has relatively little impact.

          Mine always do.  I seldom have more than 5 or 6 hubs with a score greater than 75.

          I have found that hubs that have between 800 and 1200 words fare better than those with less than 800 and those with more than 1200.  I guess you can say that is the "sweet spot" for me.  Concentrate on targeting no more than 3 keyword phrases (not the same as tags) Only use tags that relate to your topic and no more than 20.

          Also make use at least 3 to 4 images and at least 1 to 2 videos. Polls and quizzes will keep your viewers on page longer which is something the search engines track also (time on page)

          Add an RSS capsule of a popular "on subject" blog or a news capsule.  This will keep your page dynamic, meaning it will constantly update on its own and when the spiders crawl they will notice new material.

          Plus make use of the map and links modules for your viewers

          Of course, your content will ultimately be the main focus so be concise, informative, and fresh.

          The above elements are the difference between my top performing hubs and those not performing so well. smile

    Okay thanks.  I guess a brand new one at 50 is not big concern yet!  smile

      Hey Julie,

      If you would like a hubscore higher than 50 on a freshly made hub, then leave it unpublished for a couple of days to a week. Also, review it for errors and possibly for adjustments. As you do this, it will gain more of a better score, before you publish it. smile

        Interesting, I did not know that an unpublished hub could earn before it was published. THanks!

        Good one Cagsil.

        Thant's why I notice my hubs are like 53-ish right after I post them.

        *i use to keep them to review the contents and photos smile

        Thank you for the info!

    This is probably a silly question, but what's a hubsore? Is that something you get from looking at too many hubs? smile

    1. Cagsil profile image62
      Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Hey Irohner,

      The hubscore goes up and down relative to traffic and ratings applied, such as up-down-beautiful-awesome-useful-funny. smile

      1. lrohner profile image80
        lrohnerposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Right. So what's a hubsore. That's what the OP asked for. smile

          Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          Oh I'm sorry, I thought you actually said "hubscore" like the OP was asking...I didn't notice the "c" missing.

          A "hubsore" would probably be from writing too long of hubs that your fingers are sore, just from writing one. lol

    lrohnerposted 7 years ago

    Okay, we've got Hubnumb and Hubsore. And Hubache would be.....?

    btw, no apologies needed, Cags. But read the OP again--Hubsore! smile

      I don't have a Hubsore yet and I hope I don't get one!  smile  but I have had a Hubache at times.  I've been called a Hubbum and I had a Hubchore the other day, but I got it done.  I OFTEN get Hubnumb.  I'm just a Hubchick trying to keep my Hublife happy.  I've tried, with no success, to get a Hubhubby, but I had to give that up when I realized most of the Hubmen are already tied up.
