Could you give me some advice as to how to maximise my pofit from every hub?
quite new to hubpages and im not amazing on the computer when it comes to how to linking my hubs to sites and so forth, also if you could advise me on how to get my hub score up that would be great also thanks
Hub score is mostly related to the amount/variety of your content. You need to have a lot of words to have a high hub score but words usually won't do it.
The Hubpages people want to see you breaking the content up into multiple sections with headings, because that's what "hooks" skimmers. One long block of text, regardless of how well it's written, isn't going to cut it. It would look like a peer reviewed scientific journal, and real people don't read those. So the content has to be broken up with different "units" that have good headers.
They also want you to inject "other stuff" into each Hub...so images, videos, ad blocks, etc. These break up the flow of the Hub and add extra revenue possibilities for the site. They like more revenue.
As to how to make more money...the most important think is keyword research. Regardless of what people say, most valuable traffic isn't going to come from within Hubpages itself. Why? Because this site is a "social" site which means people come here to hang out and stuff. They don't come here with an open wallet looking to buy stuff.
People who buy (i.e. "valuable traffic") is almost exclusively found via google. When people need something to solve a problem (be it product, service, or information) they search for it and they usually search with google.
You need to build your hubs around keywords that get good traffic but have low competition. That way it's easy to beat out the people in the Top 10 in google for that keyword, get your Hub ranked, and get traffic. This is, of course, the rub of the issue. The concept is simple, but not easy to execute.
Well, I'm definitely no authority on making money on Hub Pages. But I have made some money, and it is increasing recently as I adjust my approach. Girl gone strong makes some good points. Let me also add you need to write a LOT of hubs. Right now I've written about 60 or so, but I could have easily written dozens more in the time that I've been here.
If you look at all the successful hubbers who make a lot of money, they all have over 100 hubs, and many have several hundred. They also write on a variety of topics, instead of just one. Usually at least 3 or 4 major topics.
The ideal length of each hub should be roughly between 400 and 1000 words or so, in my experience. Anything shorter or longer than that is not attractive to most people. This is good in a way, because if you have 1500 words to say about something, you can break that up into 3 or 4 hubs and get four times the amount of search engine attention.
Also pay attention to details like titles and headings in the hubs. You can try different titles containing different keywords that will attract more people. And do make use of the headings in each capsule when writing a hub. Don't put your section headings as bold text inside the capsule, but rather put them as the heading of the capsule. Think about those keywords when writing the headings too.
And because I am a grammar nazi, everyone should edit their text. Do not have any grammatical errors or misspelled words in your articles. Try typing the whole thing in Microsoft Word and seeing the mistakes that the program highlights before posting it.
All of these things will increase your hub score as well. Just focus on the writing, and the scores will come naturally.
Writing well is a journey. I have learned a lot and my writing (and therefore earnings) have improved a lot just in the last year. One has to write hundreds of thousands of words to really get better over time, to attract more readers, to be more persuasive, to communicate better, etc.
A lot of more technical information like how to link text to another website or how to move capsules around can be found in Hub Pages help and tutorials. Or just experiment and explore the system.
Hope that helps.

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total...

It is advantageous to delete one's own low scoring hubs that have little traffic. I figure getting rid of the low score would increase the average of the rest of one's hubs.What do you think?

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...
