I recently published a hub, and it got out of the review process yesterday and is receiving the most views of all my pages. I noticed my daily pay didn't bump at all and got suspicious... lo and behold there are no ads on the page and I just noticed that I have been given a hubscore of 48 on it!
There is no "warning" about ads being disabled- they simply aren't there.
If I were getting paid, I'd say live and let live, but since I'm not - if this isn't fixed I'm going to have to delete the hub and move it to my own domain so it can actually benefit me.
Edit: I think I know the problem. Whatever algorithm is being used to determine score is classing my crochet pattern as gibberish. These are standard abbreviations readable to anyone who crochets. I would appreciate this being fixed.
That's because it is gibberish. To dummy me, anyway!
You know, this could be a problem that I've never run across before. Still, it passed the QAP, so someone (or several someones) smarter than I am recognized it's not bad grammar or spelling and graded it accordingly.
I wouldn't worry too much about the score, though - I think all hubs start out at 40 or 45 now; it should climb with time.
There are several women who write hubs about crochet on here, and they are very good. I would recommend Patrice Walker, she writes a blog about crochet, but before that she wrote many hubs about it here, and if I recall, used the abbreviations. I'm sure she would be happy to help you.
Just checked your Hub- there are definitely ads on it. Perhaps you were checking it when it was still Pending...? At least all's well that ends well!

I feel good when my score is going up. I feel important and get noticed by others.

I noticed Amazon products displayed in the skyscraper ad on the right of my page. I also noticed it was displaying the exact same products I had listed in my Hub, further down. I'm sure I've seen Amazon ads...

This is what I have observed with my hubscore. After publishing a hub and leaving comments on other hubs, I get lots of traffic but the hubscore falls by the hour. When I stay away from HubPages for a few days, and the...

I put "none" on the ads for a hub. Is that going to make for a lower hubscore ranking because Google hates me for not participating in the revenue game?

I must have missed an announcement, but I have noticed a section down the right side of my hubs (as well as other hubs) and along the bottom called "related ads". I haven't clicked on them as that is a...

I just noticed my poems have had the advertising removed. How will they earn income without advertisements?
