    When do I know when i have my hub up to par? I dont want to spend too much time on my first hub. Can someone check my site out to see if its time to move on? So far i have only had one comment. Thanks!

      Frankly, your Hub looks more like a bio for your profile than a Hub.  In fact, I suggest you move it there.  It's a pretty good bio.

      Successful Hubs are more like magazine articles with detailed information, pictures and videos.  And to up your chances for profit, eBay and Amazon ads.

      When I started here -- days before I wrote a word -- I roamed around, reading Hubs to get an idea of what people were doing. 

      And there's lots of good information on the "Help" tab in the upper right corner of the page.

    That is certainly not up to par smile

    And it will never be unless you actually have some information to share. But, as you do not want to spend too much time on your first hub, I would say it is time to move on.

    Hi I'm fairly new here and get really low scores on my articles, what am I doing wrong?

      From here, it looks like you're on track!  It takes months, not days, to build scores and an audience.  But I would suggest writing longer Hubs.  More information for your readers, more stuff for Google to pick up so potential readers can find your article when they're looking for information.

      Score is partly based on length - number of words (you can check under hub stats how many words you have) - I find about 800 - 1600 is a good range, shorter stuff I put on my blog! BTW welcome I am an expat Kiwi from Wgtn now in Perth!  You might find my hub a useful start on hubpages
