It's me again..the most confused Hubber on the planet.
This time, my puzzle surrounds Hub Scores...I know, in a very general sense, how they work, and how to make them climb.
This one, however, has me stumped. Mind you, I'm in no way complaining..I'm merely...."confused--perplexed--stumped & puzzled."
The hub in question has had its Hub Score rise 17 points....and it is not even published yet!!! It's still in draft form, as I have more photos to take... WOW... (It's not as if it had been published, then taken down to edit some more...this one is brand new, and has yet to be published at all.)
How and why does that happen??? Should I hold additional hubs in draft mode prior to publishing, in the hopes of making their scores rise????? Or was this a glitch, and I should've kept my virtual mouth shut?
Thanks for any explanation of this mystery.
That always happens, if you leave it unpublished for a while. Most of mine score about 75 by the time I publish them because they accrue points whilst sitting waiting. I usually never publish a hub on the same day as starting it off - except for today!
There is no need to hold off publishing though, it doesn't really matter what the score is when you hit the button! I just don't have a lot of time, usually
That happens to me as well, although unlike Polly C, I always publish my articles the same day... often an hour or two after starting. I've found that the more unique and useful content that I add, the score would go higher. I think that it has to do with that a lot.
Hmmm... fascinating! Thank you both very much. I appreciate your time in answering my (probably unimportant) question.
From what I have been able to gather after almost a year is that a hub gathers points when the words that make up the title start to be searched (not the hub itself but the words in the title) and if the words in its title fit a niche category then the points or value of the hub goes up even faster.....

Hi all - its been a while since I've been on the forums. I'd love to see a new feature that would allow us to schedule a hub to be published. When editing a hub, the score tends to drop a bit, and I...

Or am I lame? I just worked hard on a recipe hub. Pictures. Info. keyword use etc... and it just said 50 when I published it.

No. It looks like that I just don't get it. When I think I have cracked it. When I think - this will be a great hub - original content, appropriate tags etc etc.. they both turn out to be the WORST...

One of my friends who is a poet had created a Hub Pages account in hopes to share her poetry with others. She published a number of poetry hubs that included her poetry and appropriate images but they became unpublished...
