Hello. My name is Cory James. I have been a HubPages members for two weeks now. With seven published hubs (one more in review), I am curious to know what is considered to be the ABSOLUTE minimum "acceptable" rating? I was at 75, but administrators unpublished one of my hubs bringing my rating down to 63. Now it's back up to 70. I'm assuming that this score is mediocre at best. Am I right? Also, what are good ways to increase traffic to my hubs?
If you want to use HubPages to provide backlinks to other sites, an author score of 75 or above is a must. Below that, the backlinks in all of your hubs become no-follow, giving them very little search engine value. If your score remains low, likely you have problems such as duplicate, substandard, or overly promotional content.

I am okay at writing and can go way more in depth then I have, however I am not sure it is necessary to have a good profitable hub. I only do things that are fun to me, but I was just wondering about a couple things.1.) I am suggesting links using the suggested links in hubpages, now I knows its...

Hi there, I'd been on Hubpages for 6 months now but probably been active for only 2 or 3 weeks. At the moment, I have 7 hubs and only 1 have breached the 80 mark (75-85). Most are in the 70s. 1-2 will drop down to 60s every now and then. So my question is, how do you make a hub go above 80 in...
