    Hi I've just joined, and was wondering why my hub score is so low. How can I improve it?

      There is no actual criteria on how to increase your score. Just keep on writing, leave comments in hubs and forums, join fan clubs, share your hubs, or anything that will make you and your hubs visible.  I had an experience that my hubscore went up to 96, then after a week of not logging in (due to tight schedule), my score went down to 92. It's not an exact measure, but just an observation. smile What matters is that you're enjoying what you're doing. wink

    Sceptic, I will not be the only one, a Hubpages Hubscore has so many factors into it, no one knows how to change it! It doesn't just go by views, or amount or words, or anything!

    For each hub just make it the bes you can and I'm sure you will get a good score.

    If your talking about the score on your avatar score, just keep writing and it should reflect your efforts nicely. Again, too many factors to try to pick something out that changes it!

    I think your score is pretty  good for being here less than a week.  As you read other hubs, as well as the suggestions offered in help and the FAQ's you will improve your score. For one thing your hubs are rather short. You may notice tat most hubs are at least three or four times longer.

    Try not to focus too much on the numbers, just do the writing-- and read the advice.

      Hey good suggestion.

      I'm also facing with low hubscore problem. I guess I should focus more on writing.

    As you can see . . . hubscores sometimes go up just by posting in forums.  It is one way for more people to find you.

    I  have to admit; it's a like an emotional rollar coaster to watch my scores go up and down.
    I've got to stop watching! LOL

    Thanks for all the advise, I have taken it onboard. I'm just gonna keep on trying and write about things that I enjoy writing about. I really like this place though, and I have to admit even though my scores may be too good yet, I really like having a go at writing about different things that I normally wouldn't write about!

    Thanks everyone:-)

    Thanks from me for all the advice.  It is hard for me to write and I've noticed my score going up as I improve my hubs and visit others' hubs.  I look it more as a game as I do different things to see how it effects the hub's score and my overall one.

      Just have fun with it as I enjoy writing so I  am satisifed with staying in the 90's smile

    Stacie, I'm with you.  My overall score fluctuates between 91 and 97.  I only hit 97 once, so I'm still waiting to hit that elusive 100 smile

    I also, like you, need to not concern myself too much about my scores.  I love hubpages and enjoy the writing just for writing's sake.

    I have no idea what kinds of algorithms HP applies to writers' Hubs to assign a value to Hub score.  My score goes from 95 to 100, depending on, who knows what?  It certainly isn't because I've written a lot of Hubs, because I haven't.  It isn't because I participate in a lot in the forums, because I don't.  I do know that my Hubs invite traffic from many sources outside HP, if that's helpful.  I know that, because I use Google analytics to see where traffic is coming from.  But I don't know why my Hubs invite that audience outside of HP, because, for the most part, I don't promote my Hubs.

    The nice thing about a higher Hub score is that you get a good position on HP's landing page.  When that has happened to me, I can see my page views increase dramatically.

    It's a mystery to me, but I do like it here.

    I agree with Rochelle and Trish.  Your score is pretty impressive for being here for such a short time, so don't complain.  smile  Just keep doing what you are doing, use analytics to help you figure out what's going on, and have fun.

    This is a good thread for newcomers to HB even if it was started 9 months ago. Just shows there are no tricks, just be part of the community and post helpful content.
