I posted a hub yesterday that already has a hubscore of 44...! My other hubs have gradually been climbing up into the 60s and 70s (I've only been posting a couple weeks).
I made a few changes to the low-scoring hub already, but I'm wondering what else I can do to raise the score. I won't post the hub link, as I'm a bit unsure whether posting a link to my hub is a violation, but it's called "Where to Read Edgar Allan Poe Poems Online," so you should be able to find it.
It's more SEO-oriented than other hubs I've done, and not as creative, but I don't think it's poor quality. Any advice?
Repeat: Way premature to change anything.
Maybe it just threw me because all my other hubs started accumulating points straight away. I was kind of taken aback when I saw that within an hour it had already dropped a point and gained none. (Yeah, I'm still at that stage where I check obsessively. Just experimenting with a few different ad revenue/revenue share sites at the mo.)
It is premature to say whether any changes are needed. More likely than not, it will pick up soon and reach a level comparable to the others. As long as you are 40+ (do-follow), you are OK, anyway.
If you want it critiqued, post to the Extreme Hub Makeover forum, where links are permitted.
I would suggest trying to work out what is holding that specific hub back. Too many links to the same site, too short...?
Thanks, all. I have been trying to figure out what's brought about the low score, and have made a couple changes. I shortened the list of Amazon links, for example, as I thought the length made it look spammy. I linked to several sites, and only one was linked more than once. I added links to other hubs to improve "interactivity." (Do I have the right idea there?) It wasn't a lengthy hub, but I've written shorter.
Not sure if I'm ready for the full "Extreme Makeover" yet. Oo-er.
Newly published hubs often drop below 50. I think yesterday there was a similar discussion, and the advice is to give it time.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...

I was just shocked to see that my current highest scoring hub with a hubscore of 91 is no longer featured! PD Sorry about the typo in the title which I just noticed! That is what happens when you have a keyboard with...

For some reason unknown to me both my latest hubs have received the lowest scores I have ever known despite them having gone live yesterday and had many hours in between when I posted them and both hubs - Autumn...

I've been here long enough to realize that hub scores can be low for good hubs and high for those so-so hubs. I also know that hub scores are based on more than content so traffic and reader comments and other things...

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...
