My emergency survival kit hub score just sank like over 30 points to 41! Whahttttt!!!!!!!!
Maybe it was because I had copied some government info on basic supplies to include? I took it all out and everything else is original so I'll see what happens........
This is is the first time this has ever happened to me.
This happened to me too. My hub comparing the Notebook movie and book was in the high 80's until it started picking up traffic with google yesterday. I guess they did not like it because now it is a 68. Oh well . Hubscores are like wild horses .
Yes- Sexy First Aid Kits For Your Family...lol....
Seriously though, I think it had to be the copied content- I had a list of things you should keep in a home made emergency kit copied in part from the gov. site- maybe what I'll do is just type it all in myself- that's the only thing I could think of that would cause "PUNISHMENT"...
Well my Notebook Hub is all my own words and own takes on the topic because I compared it to my Christian beliefs, so I think sometimes hub scores just go up and down. Everything I write on here is in my own words and own take, but sometimes I just see things go up and down.
And get a whole bunch of pics of Britney Spears and call it a day .
From the tags, and key words, it's a pretty intensive learning curve. I'm muddling through but getting some good rankings. My conspiracy hub has been first page google- first place - quite a bit so I'm doing something right!
The google spider will crawl hubpages content just the same as any other website but more frequently as the content is updated for frequently than most other sites. From these crawls google will include individual pages in its search results - People thus find your page and click on the link from google.
One of my hubs on "How to write a great lead capture page" has been consistently 80-85 and has just fallen to mid 60's - Could this be because somebody else has published another hub along similar lines and therefore diluted the individuality of my hub?
Ummm....Hello? Google should be (should doesn't have to by any means) be the #1 or #2 source of traffic amount wise. There are people out there that hate Google and told them that, and they got slapped on the face. Believe me when I say Google is something we all need.
It will happen all by itself, eventually! HubPages has a good "reputation" with Google so your Hubs will get noticed. It takes time, but now nearly 90% of my traffic comes from Google and other search engines.
It's nice to have other Hubbers read your Hubs and comment, but they rarely click on ads. It's the search engine traffic that does that.
You can improve your search engine traffic by promoting your Hubs around the web, too.
Well this has certainly been a learning experience. The day my hub went down to 40, I took off the info with too many links that I had mistakenly put, then the score gradually started climbing again. It's now up to 89 within just days, and I'm going to go back in add my checklist of supplies BUT without the links..lol... because I think the checklist is vital to the hub. I'll just make sure the checklist is in my words as much as possible.
It is definitely because it is content that has been published somewhere else before. The same thing happened to me - my score almost immediately plummeted when I published dup content.
Another thing to watch out for, is that your hubs all have to be related. For instance, I have a hub where I review software, and they are all grouped. In that same hub I (because I was a newbie!) created a hub around making money online. Same thing - hub score plummeted to the floo!

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my...

I would like a better explanation of the Hub Score. I have a Hub that I uploaded on May 12th, it's ranked #2 on Google search results for its main keyword phrase, it's getting 175 visits per day sent by Google,...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

I have had a few hubs moved to various niche sites with hub scores ranging from 69 to 87. I feel I have much better hubs remaining on the original site than some of those selected to move, especially my latest which was...
