this post is not promotional and you don't have to check my hubs.But i need your opinion on my improvement. Let me tell you about my hub tour at first.I joined hubpage 2 months ago. I had no idea about residual income, article marketing, blogging or writing content. I thought it to be place to gather all my favorite writing. So I copy pasted some of the articles I loved and created few hubs.Hubpages marked those as duplicate, deceptively tagged, substandard......Then I studied and discovered what should I do here. I deleted my duplicate hubs and started my new tour.I have improved my hubscore from 7/17 to around 60 recently.My hubs are now fresh.I am active in forum,i hop some hub everyday and leave comments.I am getting follower and also following others.My question is why i am not reaching the 75 hubber score mark?What may be the reasons? I have found out some.Do you agree?
~I have used copyrighted photo.
~I have used some copy pasted lines, only a very few though.[hubpages didn't marked my hub as duplicate.]
~All my hubs go through preview by the admin before publication.
~I have two photo hubs which are completely copyrighted as i didn't took those photo.Don't flag those please, i will delete those my self.
~my hub scores are 78,70,70,70,68,68,68,64,64,63,62......58 but i get only 3-10 view everyday in total.
~My English is not so good
i can only suggest from what i do..first of all when i write hub it is normaly of length of more than 500 words and 600-700 average...after writing the hub,i go for spell check..once that is done i post on hubs..i am active on forums because i like it..occasionally i do answer questions..when i like some body's hub i comment on it...
Usually, author score below 75 are because of problems with substandard content, especially duplicate content copied from elsewhere.
Try to contact them, briefly explain the problem, request a review.
I agree with WE--low author scores are usually the result of duplicate or substandard content.
You didn't ask for this advice but I'm going to give it anyway. I did read through some of your hubs, and while your English isn't the best (as you pointed out), some of it isn't horrible. But a lot of it is bad enough that I just can't even understand what you are trying to say. I would suspect that if you started using proper punctuation (a space after every period, for instance) and ran your work through a grammar checker like the one available in MS Word, the quality of your work would drastically improve.
Maybe it would help to have someone who speaks English well, to review your hub articles, and make corrections before you publish. This would help readers to understand the message you're trying to convey better.
Best of luck, saleheensblog.
In my humble opinion, you just have to be patient and work diligently on the improvement. Do not delete if you think there is a potential in your work. Rewrite it, save it, let it stay, come to it again at different time in different mood, read it, check, double check everything and then publish it. After certain period come back and add something valuable to it and republish it. That's what I am trying to do. Sometimes it is very hard to find the right words, even if you have a perfect story (you think) to tell. English is not my native language either, but I feel like I have to use it to tell people what I think and how I feel, and hope to be useful sometimes to somebody with my stories. Don't expect too much, but don't feel discouraged, HubPages usually never put you down without a reason. And don't expect miracles in two months. Just work on that!
thnx for your kind suggestion. But i am afraid I don't have a friend to help me.
Looked at some of your hubs. The hubs on home gardening and prevent hair loss have lots of content, graphics and inviting to look at. I think the grammar is hurting you. Try to copy each paragraph into MS Word and run the grammar checker. Or just Google grammar checker and use one of the free tools. If you improve the punctuation and spelling, your hubs will do better.
