Hub of the Day seems to have no relation to score. In fact, on of my HOTDs was later unfeatured for Quality. I'd be more concerned whether it gets traffic than what the score is. Some of my best hubs have low scores.
Happy Monday to you para. I remember this hub, saw my congrats comment to you 21 months ago! Time flies here at HP. Here are my suggestions:
1. Title: Choose one or the other between "with" or "from" 2. Remove the subtitle "Introduction." Replace it with "Make Your Own St. John's Wort Tea" 3. Make all images full width; change up repetitive captions ("These beautiful flowers make a great tea," "This medicinal plant has helped many people overcome depression."). 4. Read the entire article slowly and check for small typos - they add up.
If your hubscore does not go up at least 7 points, I will eat my hat. No, maybe I'll help you edit another hub.
I have never trusted people who wear hats, or simply have access to them for eating, but that is pretty good advice.
It is a friendly, easy to read page but a little eccentric. I remember Simone Smith once talking about 'over-caffeinated, hyperactive titles' and at the time I was pretty sure she sure she was thinking of PDS, lol.
Are the photos all of the same plant? One typo in first pargraph, "you" instead of "your". What about a photo of a capsule in place one of the flowers or even a video showing a capsule being dismembered or whatever you do to them?
Well, sports fans... It's been 10 days and the aforementioned hub now has a grand slam hub score total of 69. If the thing wasn't getting decent traffic, it'd be out of here and on my website. I might just transfer the critter anyway.
Sorry to hear it didn't help, para. I was so sure it would, maybe because it usually works for me. I think the algo for hubscores changed after subdomains were eliminated, even more so after the new sites launched. I used to have a lot of hubs in the 90s. Now most of my hubs are in the 70s, my HOTD included. So I don't think editing doesn't work; it just doesn't work like it used to with the new algo. [If I'm wrong, HP staff please tell me]
There is also another factor to consider; what was considered an HOTD back in the day is now considered a PoS in year 2016. After all, the critter didn't make it to the niche site while my other hub did. Then again, maybe they never bothered to look at it because of its crummy score.
Hard to say. One of my beverage articles has not been selected but my three pet ones were..they just have not gotten to some perhaps. These sites are flying out right now. .I do know that you don't need an extremely stellar score to be picked. Mine that did hover in high 70 low 80's. I think I have some dud hubs dragging my overall score down. Whatever. Me not's terribly concerned over it.
To satisfy my own curiosity, I would like to know why one of the hubs that was transferred from Squidoo, has such a low "hub score". I have gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, and cannot figure it out. It...
Hi there, I'd been on Hubpages for 6 months now but probably been active for only 2 or 3 weeks. At the moment, I have 7 hubs and only 1 have breached the 80 mark (75-85). Most are in the 70s. 1-2 will drop down to 60s...
