    These tips may not be new for expert Hubbers but as a relatively new (1.5 months) hubber, I learned two tricks that may help other new hubbers;

    1. When you start a hub, leave it on draft for a few days to a week, it will rise on hub score. Do not wait too long to publish it. It will help your overall author score as well.

    2. Everyone talks about backlinks being important and they are! But did you know, if you write on hub forums, answer question on "answers' section or leave thoughtful comments on other hubs, that also counts as a backlinks to your profile? It sure help.

    I am still learning a lot and wanted to share these tips here.

      1.I don't agree at all.  Leaving it on draft will only increase your hubscore, it will not have impact on your earnings.  So it is better if we publish hub as soon as we finish them.

      2.Backlinks are necessary but you should create backlink to your hubs not your profile.  And at hubpages, the links in the comment section are nofollow so they are of little use.(Google only counts dofollow backlinks)

      BTW, welcome to hubpages!!

        Yes it is a good point. Link to our profile is not as much as beneficial than link to a hub.

      I think backlinks are important, but not as important if you write on topics that are low competition/high popularity.

    Backlinks are links from other sites to your hubs. Links from other pages within HP to your hubs or profile are just that -- internal links. They are not the same as backlinks at all. Are they beneficial? Sure. But again, not in the same way as backlinks.

    my first tip would be to learn as much as you can from reading helpful tips on improving your hubs, as this can have a dramatic affect on your views and more importantly your adsense earnings.
    Secondly- work hard at giving unique quality hub information as this will pay dividends later down the line.

    Hubscore is not particularly important, get those hubs out as soon as they are ready to go!

    Internal backlinks are useful, but you will probably get more benefit from interlinking your hubs than forum posting!

    I have a hub on backlinks you might find useful, it is a rather complex subject.
