I am clearly new at this...

    I am clearly new at HubPages; just got an account about 2 weeks ago.

    Now, I've added photos (both my own as well as others) and given attribution when necessary.

    I've tried to include useful links.

    I've definitely used my own words and have not plagiarized anything.

    Why though are my hubscores relatively low? Does my writing need improving?

    Perhaps my topics just aren't that interesting or original?

    Any constructive criticism/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

      Wish I could help more but I'm a newbie as well. It wasn't until hub warnings on here that I learned about online copyrights, "plagiarizsm", and that some people actually do use as adults what they learned in highschool english/lit. class.  I figured if I'm getting a warning with each hub, that I should shine my shiny star elsewhere. So now I I just comment on forums looking to hijack whatever deems entertaining. Good luck!!  big_smile

      I looked at your hub on Functional Analysis of....
      Here are some suggestions if you like...

      Break your text up using Sub-titles and place key words in those sub titles. You can use adwords to identify those key words (lots of hubs about how to do this by other hubbers)Some sub titles might be...best technology in the 50's. 60's,ect....

      Here are some links from the learning center
      You can use this information to help create sub-titles

      I noticed that you have 5 hubs. Need to write another 5 hubs and your hubscore will increase. Btw, your hub about What the catholic church thinks...way too long to read. You can make into 2 hubs.

    From what I can figure out in my 9 months here (I still consider myself new) is that unless your hub scores fall WAY low, below 55 I think, there's nothing to worry about because the ad revenue is still active unless they fall below 55 (I know I read that somewhere on here).  My 3 hubs with the highest scores have consistently also been my most viewed hubs so I'm guessing that page views have a lot to do with it.

    I do know that my individual hub scores tend go up after they have had time to be crawled by the search engines and start to pop up in the search engine pages.  Unless I do a really big promotion on them with social media, they tend to hover around the high 60's, low 70's for a while until the search engines pick them up.  I've intentionally not promoted some of them to see what happens and that's what I've noticed.

    I've also noticed that when I'm working on a hub that takes a couple of days to finish that the hub score goes up almost every day while I'm working on it.  Those can't be seen by anyone but me so I have no idea why those scores change like they do. 

    At least that's my experience with it.  smile

    Some of your hubs are very short, otherwise they seem fine.

    The scores on individual hubs start out low naturally (around 50s), and then rise as people read them and vote them up, and as time progresses.  As long as they are over 45, I wouldn't worry much about the score of individual hubs, except in comparison to each other.
