    I have been here for one week now, published 5 hubs (ranging from 64 to 72 in HubScore) and obtained a personal HubScore of 88. My hubs are receiving 5 visitor/day.

    Is that normal or am I under the average?

      As others said-- you need to give it some time.. As you read suggestions given to others you will find ways to improve your score and your readership.

      On a quick read-through I find:
      that most of your hubs are brief-- and on the same subject. Some could have been combined.
      If you write in a program that allows spell-check before posting you will eliminate some errors.
      People tend to skip hubs without images, icons or graphics-- you will improve scores by using some visuals.
      Some research, background or references will help back up your opinions.
      Don't worry about comparing yourselves to others-- but do read some of the high rated hubs to see what they are doing.

    Sounds normal to me as long as you're not spamming it up. wink  Don't worry too much about your Hubscore though, my best performing hub flitters between a 75~ hubscore to a 92 and it took nearly a year for me to get up into the 97-99 range in personal score.  There are lots of factors that go into the scores, too.

    All in all, the more you focus on your hubs and making a positive impact on the community, the better. smile

    There is no normal - or average.

    Gamergirl is right.

    Don't obsess about the numbers.
    Do your keyword research, and concentrate on writing good hubs.
    Treat any earnings as a surprise, rather than a target.

    If you get the hubs right, the earnings will come (or so they say)

      I'm with you man.  I would rather be dipped in milkshake and strapped to an anthill before I'd want to be considered normal by anyone.

        Love it! I get so surrounded by normals sometimes I forget that there are real people out there.

    I want to be dipped in a milkshake-- (chocolate please) but isn't that normal?

    1. Shadesbreath profile image81
      Shadesbreathposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah, Rochelle, everyone wants that.  I mean, some want Vanilla, some Strawberry or Chocolate, but yeah, that's normal.  If you don't want to be dipped in milkshake there's something wrong with you.  It's the anthill part that separates people.

    Well from the look of your avatar, being on the anthill certainly separated your brain from the rest of your body!

      I simply choose to ignore the rest most of the time.  It gets in the way of what matters.

    It is not disclosed by the hubpage administrator but with my experience I can asssume some. It depends on your text mainly . About 50% marks are reserved for your contents.
    Number of hits you get to your articles have another major factor.
    Editing and adding new contents also increase marks.
    Comments recieved and use of other tabs e.g. digging or blogging it, e-mailing to a friend, linking to other sites, poll etc also increase marks.

    so meaning to say some people earning through hubpages as their royalty?

  12. Inspirepub profile image75
    Inspirepubposted 10 years ago

    Some people earn some money via their HubPages writing, yes, but it's not a royalty. It's revenue from the Pay Per Click advertising on the pages.

    Jenny,Is it not a mix of Royalty as they are paying some (Though a little) for page view?  Please through light.
