I have created a new hub on a topic that probably has been written about on hubpages and the web millions of times 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone'.
It has a lot of content and all of the content is original.
Would the fact that the hub is on an over-used topic mean that the rating will automatically go down? It went down immediately - most of my hubs are in the range 60-80 and my 'rating' in 91 - so I was surprised by this.
Or am I simply being impatient and it will rise eventually?
Not directly, but traffic is an important component of HubScore. It can be hard to get significant traffic to something that's already been covered from every angle ...
my hubs are usally like, 40 to 60. tops. I wouldnt worry about it, look more at traffic. Like people keep saying, keywords, tags adnd a good title matter for search engines.
Don't worry just be patient. I wrote a fiction short story and sadly got a score of 50 but it is slowly rising as some people read it. so be patient
