I have been on Hubpages for a little over a week and have been finding the best strategies to make a profile grow.
I wrote a hub on it, but in a nutshell:
In a nutshell,
1. Write quality hubs.
2. Answer people's unanswered questions.
3. Read hubs and do hubhopping.
4. Be a source of help on the forums.
5. Read the "Feed".
6. Learn from the experience of successful hubbers.
Hiya, welcome to Hubpages! You got the idea! lol but you forgot, just go with the flow! and good luck.
Good idea, I suppose it is better as a newbie to have advice from a real newbie
I've found that writing quality hubs and doing none of the other things brings up a score equally fast.
I have several other accounts, all of which have never answered a question, made a comment or visited the forums. They're all over 80.
I had to delete a hub yesterday, it was outdated and had broken links and other things I wanted to remove and my hubberscore dropped since then. Before that I was averaging 95-97
I opened a second account, and have rarely posted anything with it - but I noticed that that profile had a high score right from the start. I wonder if Hubpages gives your subsidiary accounts a score related to your main account?
Mine were started months ago and all started out in the normal 30 range.
I have a single other account with one Hub on it. It has the same Hub Karma as this account does. I think, maybe, you're right, quotations. Just an uneducated guess, though. The Hubber score is only in the 80's, though (which I think might be what I'd expect, maybe, with the particular Hub on there).
hotwebideas, I read this at the wrong time. Everyone has a take, and your's is not the first that made sense to me. I, too, have learned an awful lots since coming on HP. And I feel like I've made a lot of friends. A awful lot of very smart people have taken the time to answer my questions and help me in so many ways! But I'm outta here. Too bad, so bad. I'll keep reading the ones I like; not sure about being in the mood to follow people who think they know more than some who've been at this for two or more years and have been much more helpful. Sorry. Not bitter--just honest. Downloading to pull out will take a few days.
Ah, hotwebs, read you at a bad, bad time, and I'm not good at keeping my mouth shut. I have been literally fighting w/HP and Google for 4 mos. I'm sick of it. I've admitted to being technically challenged, but have done each and every single thing every single person and both HP and Google say do, and absolutely nothing has worked. But I love HP, and decided after I blew up at you I'm headed to a friend's in June (500 mi and can't go till then) and see if he can fix. I've even tried to sign out of everything and start over (son's idea--computer freak!)--won't work. Sorry I rained on your parade; it's just that it's not always so simple as you put it! (And I'm NOT stupid--I CAN follow directions!) Happy hubbing.
Tey this is sad news. Truly wish there was some way for you to resolve matters and stay writing here. Stay with the rainbow Tey, always forever.

In a word: adverts! I was just looking at some older hubs and realised I have lots of Amazon and eBay ads alongside the text or in blocks. I remember doing this now having seen some past high-earner Hubbers having lots...
