Why such low scores??

    I've published hubs recently that are starting out with a score of 44, or 45.  I've never really had such low scoring hubs.  One of them I can semi see it being low scored, as it's more of a rant than anything else - another is a pretty decent product hub for a good, low cost product that. . . .I'd think would be scored a lot higher.

    Sure, the scores may go up - but I'm at a loss of understanding as to why hubs that I bust out in a day's time are. . . .scored so low.  These aren't hubs that are very close to being anything like anyone else's.  I'm just not the guy who writes something that resembles someone else's work in the least.  I don't get it.

    It happens from time to time. Especially, when you are publishing hubs continuously. If you publish a hub in one day, then the score will be low or go lower, simply because of traffic and content.

    You could publish more than one hub in a day and most likely have both of them be low scores. I find it easier to keep them for a day or two, check them out for errors, re-affirm my keywords and make sure that the hub flows from beginning to end. By doing so, my average hub score to start is somewhere around 72 or higher.

    I hope that helps.

    Cags is right, WTS.  I've sat on mine unintentionally before publishing from time to time and the score will rise significantly.

    I noticed that some of mine now start out below 50 which used to be the lowest level I think.

    Freaked me out at first.  But I don't think article score really matters to anything does it?

    I couldn't sit on an article.  I should, and edit and stuff, but I just want to get them out there.

    I don't normally either, Mark, but I did on my last article and it went from 50 to 71 in a few days.  Now it's my number one hub!
