      Potentially yes- particularly if you get some traffic from them.

      They could potentially increase your google search engine placing which is far more important than hubscore if you're looking for external traffic

    I would say yes. I have noticed a change in my score when I have used backlinks. But remember to be active and participate. Your activity can determine how many click on your links. It's not enough just to submit a link and hope it will drive traffic to your hub. Leave comments to encourage others to read your new hub.

    I hope this is helpful and good luck!

    Why worry about hubscore unless it drops down to below dofollow level.

    Hubscores are random to say the least, which is why it is not one of the numbers I would be concerned.

    I have a contemptuous view of the numbers attributed as hubscore, on my stats. the hub with the highest hubscore today has had one view.

    Thanks for the replies, I am struggling a little bit to get myself up to a hubscore of 75 but I am just so close to it.

    Can you suggest any places to get backlinks to hubs, I suppose backlinking from the comments on other peoples hubs may help too.

    You've made Hubs that tend to be rather short in length.  Adding more written content can do a lot to improve them.

      I think you are right maybe i will try to double the length of each of my hubs instead of creating new ones for the moment

    I don't know if it increases your hubscore but it will definitely increase your traffic. After backlinking my hubs I saw my traffic double within an hour.

      Yes, I saw the same thing.  An almost immediate increase.

      And within a week, a decrease back to the original level.  Where it has stayed, increasing slowly along with most of my other hubs.

    Your hubscore is a function of many things, I would concentrate more on improving your individual hubs and taking part a little more around HP by commenting on others hubs and the like (which by the way gives you a backlink!)

    If you have good hubs of a reasonable length, take part in the forums and comment then it is easy to get a "good" hubber score!

    Thanks for all the advice, I am finding everyone here on hubpages to be very friendly and helpfull which i appreciate.

    On other accounts I've found that with just ten hubs and NO site interaction, I could have my account in the low 80s within a month.

    I think you need to take a closer look at your hubs and work on them if you want to raise your scores.

    That said, scores are almost pointless. Google can't see them and Google is where the paying traffic comes from.

    I think the easiest way to get 75+ hubscore is to just interact in the forums and answer a few questions. Such community activities can give a real boost to your hubscore. And if are not spamming, getting a 75+ hubscore isn't very difficult at all. Also, if you are using hubpages mainly for dofollow backlinks then work hard on it for a month or so to get it in the 90s. Then, even if you remain completely inactive your hubscore will still be 75+.
