    What are your best practices for working Hubpages?
    Do you include a lot of media, long text, add the rss feed of your site, how many links and where....stuff like that

    Hopefully that would become 1 stop hubpages information thread

    They've very tough - you've got to go easy, link to other hubs, hold off on putting your own link in for a few days, and so on. Google this - lots of info about. First get your hub score to 75 for your links to become do follow.

    I've found my Hubpages rank pretty well and use the following to guide me.

    1) Good content (not scraped / spun) with 600-800 words over 2-3 text modules
    2) Add a couple of pictures
    3) Add an RSS module (I normally add one of my own in the same niche)
    4) Add a Youtube Video
    5) Add Comments module
    6) No other outbound links
    7) Basic link building to get it indexed (not heavy)
    8) Use the Suggest Links and add a couple to non related pages
    8) Leave it to rest for 14-30 days then after it's indexed
    9) Add outbound link to wherever you want (I only ever add one / two at most)
    10) Add another text module / FAQ / anything that add a little content
    11) Step up the link building but I'm careful not to spam the page
    12) Every 14-60 days I'll add a little more content

    Make sure you Tag your Hubpage well and if you can find any hot Tags so much the better
    Check the Stats and build links into your Hubpages with keyword as anchor text
    If you have other Hubs in the same niche create a group and add your page to it
    Drop your author RSS feed to as many aggregators as possible

    That's what I do and it works for me although I'm sure it's only the tip of the iceberg

    To get your hubscore up you need to be active. Commenting on others' hubs, ask questions start topics in the forums, ask and answer questions. The more you contribute to the community the higher it goes.

    However, nothing helps it more than to publish more hubs.

    Also, don't forget to start very controversial questions in the forums.

    Also, follow other hubbers.

    Fill in your profile properly on hubpages, use their 'suggest links tool' in your hubs, answer questions, surf other hubs. Basically, you have to play the game with hub, there are no short cuts!

    Original content is the only way to go in Hubpages.

    They transform your links to do follow if you get a hub score of more than 85

    It might have been a typo, but it is 75 when they turn to do follow.

    You need to get the hub score of every hub or the one of your profile over 75, in order to get dofoll0w?

    Do you need to stay active to keep it, it seems like it falls down with the time, if you don't go back much?
