The most likely reason for such a low score is non original content. Hubpages applies penalties for a variety of reasons and they decrease your hubscore. Anything less than 50 will prevent your hubs being found by search engines.
If you have any copied content. Delete it immediately
Are you sure? I have two people who signed up under my referral. Both have re-posted their Helium articles here, but they haven't gone on any fanning sprees or otherwise done anything wrong - yet their scores are very, very low.
Don't sweat mine was 0 to start with then hung around 12 I was rather embarrassed it gets better, plus I think the interaction, on these helps. that is why i interact. Plus I like the people. usually, just not the too religious ones.
LVM, I was wondering too why your score is so low. Maybe your hubs are too short? I've already opened 4 and the word count is a little bit on the low side. The topics are good but you need to elaborate a little bit more on your hubs. Hope this helps.
It's as I thought then. It's not the amount of fans you have, but the amount of people you have become a fan of.
Whenever you join someone's fan club, it adds them to this list. You are then notified whenever one of these people produces a hub, which, I imagine, can overburden the system a bit. My guess is Hubpages is trying to give you a silent hint not to join anymore fanclubs and to ditch some of the ones you have already joined.
This isn't about people who became your fan ... definitely keep those ... but this is about you being a fan of too many other people.
Unfortunately, the page I have been trying to get you to you load is your salvation (allowing you to stop being a fan to so many others) and it won't load for you.
I would check with the Hubpages staff to see if they could reset your account so that you *keep* all of the people that became a fan of you, but *remove* yourself from the fan clubs of all other members. Then ... I would tell you to become a fan of *only* those people who you think write really good hubs that you want to read more of.
I'm not absolutely positive on this, but is seems to be the only scenario that fits.
Remember to defan all but the ones you really want to keep. Try to get it down to 10 of your faves and write down any above that you find it difficult to get rid of ... then wait a week ... and slowly refan a few others you might really want to keep.
The goal is to get the number of fan clubs you have joined down as low as possible. With any luck, this fix should do the trick. If nothing else, it will keep your hubtivity from driving you insane.
I have read how hubscore is computed but was still surprised the other day when I saw a hubscore of 1. It just is somewhat amazing to me that some hubscores are 10 or below. Don't get me wrong----I'm...
My title should have read another hub author score question . I have noticed this hubber that puts up a lot of hubs, however, they are all very short, most less than 100-200 words. The type of hub that can be put...
We all know that Hubs start out with a score in the middle of the range and then go up or down depending on various factors. We also know that for a HubScore to be seriously low, there has to be something...
I am sort of disappointed. I try to be active in the site as much as possible, comment on other people's hubs, help out in the forums, add new hubs once every two weeks, participate in the question and answer and...
After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers...
