I keep writing and writing and writing, my traffic is growing but I cannot make it over a Hub Score of 90.
I have changed subjects, worked on key words, reworked Hubs, tried to spell check once again, and have worked on promotions. I am trying to learn the RSS feed. I just learned the horizontal line - love that photo capsule. I am now trying to better keywords that pay a higher dollar amount and have a higher volume.
What am I doing wrong?
How can I improve?
PS I am the sensitive type - pls be kind.
Here is a Hub that I love but my score is low - is it too commercial?
I was left a little confused, was I reading a hub on books, Henry Winkler, libraries or Tiffany. Virtually all topics I'm drawn to but reading a bit like having four people all talking to me at once.
I reckon on their own each subject, expanded would make a strong and interesting hub, together, too much clutter.
All comments made in a spirit of fellowship :-)
Thank you very much! I need that info. Appreciate the spirit and the help.
When I first read the hub I agreed with the comment that it is too confusing and covering too many subjects, but then I read it again and liked it. I do think the title is a bit confusing though, sort of difficult to know what it is really about at a first glance. But overall it is a good hub and holds some interesting information.
Perhaps it does have too many quotes. I don't think you should worry too much about your score though, it doesn't matter. I'm not sure what makes a score higher - definitely it is not an average of hub scores. Nor is it related to traffic.
Hello sensitive one.
I think you have done your homework on the hub. There are lots of outgoing links, but I did not count more than two to any single domain except Wikipedia, which is not considered commercial. It is clearly a quality hub. However, the many quotes could lead to problems with duplicate content, even if you are within "fair use" from a copyright law point of view.
Some might ask whether the outgoing links help your earnings potential, as they may lead visitors away from your site. But I see that the links you have provided are informational.
As far as your author score, I think you can improve that by being more active in the forums, by leaving comments on hubs, and by asking and answering questions. Lots of hubbers have improved their author score this way without necessarily getting more traffic to their hubs or higher hub scores.
I read your profile. You are a fine fellow human being in your own right.
I am sorry to say that I was a bit lost. Only because of the numerous quotes and subjects. You could create a whole different Hub on lamps and link them - or even a Hub on quotes, although I don't know how good that would be. I'm no expert, not by any means, but I think all the info is there, just maybe to much?
How the heck did you get those black horizontal lines?!
You are doing way better than you think you are (I think!)
I learned those from horizontal lines - just a different type of photo which I think is really cool - it lends a break in the thought patten for my hubs.
Some are free:
I prefer to download just in case they get moved - I always try to give credit at the end.
Thank you for your kind words of encouragement.
I thought it was all wonderful. I do think though that it would benefit you to put all this information into two or three hubs all linked. Then the one article could be specialized and promote the others and publishing the feed would give more options. Loved it all.
If the quotes one was by itself and deemed not original, then it would hurt only that one and not the other two.
I will be rewriting this and implementing these suggestion - thank you very much!

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...

Is 100 the maximum hubscore a hub can get? And what does it basically indicate?

From past experience and from most of what I have read it is uncommon for hub scores to go up on a weekend. Please let me know your experience with this.

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I...
