please help me to find possible reasons for my hubberscore 1.I also found that broken links are not detecting in my hubs.
If you read the FAQ, it details what not to do in your Hubs. To get a score of 1, the lowest possible, most often many violations are occurring.
You had asked the same question in the other thread and I tried to answer it.. maybe you should read FAQ's and the answer http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/71325#post1552736
You appear to be merely copying and pasting statistics from various computer specifications =for instance
I totally agree with Iyndre. You are a phenominal achiever! You are a legend!!
The last hubber I saw with a score of one was because he was a rampant follower. If you did about 5,000 follows to get your 500 followers, then I’m guessing that is the cause.
All I could ask here is,
1: Is there anything in there that you didn't copy and paste from a manual? I'm agreeing with Barry. On the one hand some of it seems fairly original and unique whereas the rest of it is something I would read if I actually purchased the product and/or looked at the specifications on the side of the package.
2: I've been on for almost two years now and I don't have even a hundred, let alone five hundred followers. Most of my followers are there because of my hubs, not because I "follow" them.
3: If your google adsense account is going up, that'd be the only thing I'd stay concerned with. Otherwise, maybe write a few more original hubs.
NateSean, I'm sure you are a nice person and your intentions are good. But I'd dare call what you are suggesting wishful thinking in the extreme. Nothing will help get out of the morasses, except perhaps to clean up the account completely.
can you please point out which of my hubs are of lower quality ,substandard, and does not meet the criteria
Nice help guys..................here is an example of the problem I am seeing. Repetitive paragraphs.
"Pokemon series are the killer titles in Nintendo ds. So we can expect pokemon in Nintendo 3ds too. Pokemon series are the traditional games for Nintendo. So, surely Pokemon will be available for Nintendo 3ds. There's no reason for Nintendo to take this game out of 3DS"
This is in 3 of your paragraphs!
Reread, rewrite- republish...good luck
Post a few links in the Extreme makeover section and you will get constructive ideas and you can take it from there.
Well, it looks like his score is steadily rising. Whether that's from original views by the people trying to help him, or he's following advice, is hard to say.
Still, I stand by what I've said before. If you have a Google Adsense acccount, diversify. Find other venues to connect to it.
Website Examiner: Be careful. If you put your tongue too far into your cheek you might actually break skin. There are statistics out there...somewhere.
Not that I'm experienced - but it looks to me like your stuff is substandard and copied and pasted...
Also, reading some of your fan mail, how many people are you following?
That is an excellent point... indiscriminately following people can also cause you to be penalized, I am not suggesting that this is the only reason, it is added to the fact that hub don't have original content ...may be it will help to sort out those issues first before putting them on extreme makeover.
Come on guys! Maddie said to give them the benefit of the doubt!
Yes, maybe this link will work even better:
I don't want to be rude but one time there was someone that was actually criticizing that saying this wasn't facebook; I follow you, you follow me. I know there are many people that have a lot of followers but I thought people followed each other because of the content not to return favors or am I wrong?
I'm fairly certain that's the case with about 90% of people who use this site.
Frankly, Hubpage should not be the primary source of your Google Adsense revenue.
Concerning the OP, I think some Hubbers have concluded that he could not have nearly that many followers without having followed x times more to attract them. In my experience, this analysis seems to be correct. Even getting 100 followers isn't that easy.
The HubPages FAQs makes it clear that following people "indiscriminately" can hurt the author score. Usually, such behavior has one reason and one alone: To gain followers. It is clearly a practice that HubPages doesn't support; at least not on a big scale.
This said, I don't think that following many Hubbers will alone be nearly enough to bring someone's author score down to 1.
iamalegend, Don't pay any attention to these individuals. Most of them act as though they are professionals that have been doing this on the hub pages for over 50 years. The hub pages have only been around for 4 short years, and I have a car battery that's older than that. If some changes aren't made soon, the hub pages won't be around in another 4 years just like my car battery. I believe you wrote a very good hub on that subject. As far as the #1 on your score goes, don't worry about it, and who cares. The reason most of these people here have a high score is because they DON'T FOLLOW anyone in return. To have been around for a few years on the hub pages and not even have 100 followers says a lot about that individual. You can see that simply by going down their history. I wouldn't waste my time following a person like that. The fact is sometime recently the powers to be at the hub pages put in place a process that lowers the score of a hubber who THEY consider has followed too many people. Therefore those that have been here on the hub pages for a WHOLE 2,3 or 4 years weren't penalized for doing this in the past. Again, don't worry about some silly score. Don't worry about some piddly little check. If you want some extra money, then just work a little over time in the real world. Just write on the hub pages for fun, like a lot of people do, and don't get involved in the childish politics, like it appears is happening here. Stop on by this link - <snipped link> And you'll see what I mean by just having fun. Take care imalegend, and the rest of you can jump in Lake Michigan.
"To have been around for a few years on the hub pages and not even have 100 followers says a lot about that individual."
Okay, I'm curious - what does it say about me?
I think this individual was saying that such people are not worthwhile following because they are unlikely to follow you back. That individual seems to think that people who have relatively few followers after a period on HubPages are likely not popular for that reason.
I believe the analysis is incorrect. I hardly follow anyone, yet I have been building a solid following simply by being active.
I agree, WE. I am very selective about whom I follow - I firmly believe that following means taking an interest, and you can't possiby keep track of the work of more than a handful of Hubbers at a time.
Originally, we didn't have "followers" we had "fans", which was a far more accurately descriptive word. Several of us were very disappointed when it was changed to "followers", because that implies the brainless following and friending of Twitter rather than a genuine admiration for one's work.
The practice of penalising Hubbers who go on "fanning sprees" has been in place for a long time and I think it's a good thing.
I'll jump into lake Ontario but later, now it's too cold in there.
Im don't have a killer hubber score, I only joined a couple of days ago, but by the sound of it you should join Twitter man!
I noticed you still have news capsule son alot of your hubs...you need to remove them to improve your score.
i don't know why you author score is so low though...
says who? where? Im going to go ahead and guess that a whole bunch of writers are severely lacking in the critical reading department and for good measure, the source and fact checking arena also.
a game of telephone
Glad to see you at 84. I am just doing my thing posting hubs and just joined a week ago, so I hope to have a hubberscore like yours eventually, but guess I have to be patient.
My hub scores are not too bad after a week. I am hanging around high 60s to low 70s. Happy about that.

Do any of you have people following you, but they have not writen any hubs, yet these people...have some 5-50 people following them? And, do you think that it is possible that these people may copy hubs and try to pass them on as their own?
by Susannah Birch 7 years ago
You can't. Just had to put that out there as I'm seeing newbies all over the forums going on about these topics lately.Serious money comes from getting views from Google NOT from having other hubbers visit your work. Some of the top hubbers on the site have separate accounts NO ONE knows about to...

I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and maybe it is the way it goes but I think it is disrespectful. I have commented on a...

Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?

I have been a member of HubPages for seven months. I have read hubbers with less membership who have more than 1,200 followers. How is that possible? And how can I attract more followers to my "little world" in HubPages?
by Dave Mathews 11 years ago
Is it possible that once a writer has successfully published a new hub, that Hub Pages would deliberately block the writer from sharing his hub, with his followers.The reason I ask, is that in the last two days I published successfully two different hubs on two different topics and supposedly...
