First, some background. I don't know much about what makes hubs successful or not. My scores mystify me- some of my favorite hubs that I think I would personally gravitate towards have low scores whereas others I thought were a bit obscure have high scores.
My most successful hub is Dreaming of Snakes: What Snakes mean in a dream. I get at least 100 views a day.
I thought I should continue to write about dreams since people seem to be interested in the meaning behind their dreams and I think I offer a unique perspective.
I just wrote this hub on dreaming about Exes: http://sueb.hubpages.com/hub/Dreaming-about-an-Ex
I have never had a hubscore under 50 so I think something is wrong. The only thing I can think of is at some point I received a warning that it may be classified incorrectly because hubpages thought it was a hub about getting back your ex (which it's not). I think as I continued to write that warning eventually just went away and I was able to publish the hub.
I spent a lot of time on this hub and thought dreaming of an ex was more common than dreaming of snakes which would give me more viewers (or so I thought).
Any feedback is welcome. Thanks so much for taking the time to read my request!
I saw nothing wrong with your hub. It is well formatted and is easy to read. Not overly promotional or anything like that. I would not worry about the score. Generally, when a hub is first published the score falls before it starts climbing in hub score.
Thanks for replying, it went up 2 points since I posted although it is still under 50. Maybe I just never watched so closely the first day!

My hub that seems most popular with over 52,000 reads is at the bottom of my hubs with a 69 and it has been 70's so I sharpened it up some just to have it fall. How can this be? I hate to delete it but I think that is...

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'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 was shocked this morning that despite posting a new hub last night my hub profile score had dropped from 96 down to 88. I posted in Hubber's Hangout and it turns out that I am not alone because other hubbers have...
