Why I am getting a low hub score everytime I publish a new hub

    I am a new hubber and I am getting low hub scores from the beginning despite my sincere efforts to produce good quality hubs. Does low hub scores mean that no follow is applicable to my hubs.

      No.  Your author score makes your hubs nofollow.  Once your personal author score is above 75, then all your hubs will be "dofollow."

      At least that's what I'm told, and if you use firefox there is an app or extension, or whatever that you can add to the firefox browser that will highlight every link so as you can tell what is "nofollow, " "dofollow."

      So really, (I've not seen your hubs) - what you need to work on is participation here in the community so as to raise your author score.

      I can show you profiles of persons who claim to be "scientist" who publish extremely low quality hubs consisting of a picture of a deformed goat, and twenty five words....and have a hubpages author score in the low 90's.

      The only reason that that person's author score could possibly be so high is because they participate often in these forums, Q & A, and ...whatever else they do.

    My hubs start out with low scores and as they are viewed and commented on the score rises.

    I don't know what you mean by "low score", but I think most hubs start with a much lower score and then go up to where they probably stabilize.

    For only being here for four days, your author score isn't bad. I would recommend not publishing so many at one time. Let your hubs sit for at least 24-48 hrs. then publish them. Don't worry so much about your author score, just publish good quality hubs.


    500-1500 words with original or non-copyrighted pics. No pixelated or watermarked pics. Don't forget your summary and add at least 10 tags to each hub; but from what I see you have provided plenty of length and clear pics. Keep up the good work! smile

      But on the other hand.. by publishing a bunch right away, a month from now all of them should be stable and they will tend to dampen the effect of publishing new hubs then.

      The more old you have behind you, the less effect new has (assuming good hubs, of course).

        That makes sense too. smile But if you publish to many at one time, your score reflects it. I know. lololo! smile

    I've known hubbers with very low scores and very high income... don't you worry.

      Exactly!

      James Watkins produces the most thorough content on this entire website, and my score is always higher than his is now.

      All that matters is having an author score above 75.

        Nope.

        EVEN scores matter.  Odd scores are, well, odd..

        No, seriously:  I have no idea.  High Hub score might even indicate a problem in some cases.  For example, I've seen my score rise when I am getting a lot of visits from other Hubbers.   As happy as I am to see them, it's Google traffic I want..

          RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          I just refuse to write hubs about hubbers or hubpages....I like social networking - but if we aren't working towards appealing to an audience that ISN'T on hubpages.com....all we're doing here is social networking.

    When you first write a hub, your score will be about 50 or 55. If you wait to publish it for a day or two and then go do your final polish, just before you publish it, the score will go up 10-20. The links, pictures, and tags will all add to your hubscore.
    When you participate in the community, it bring your hubber score up, publishing without waiting and publishing several at a time will bring it down. Asking and answering questions, participating in the forums, reading and commenting on hubs, and hub hopping are all participating in the community. When I answer a question, I know my hubber score will go up.
    Being on here for just four days and publishing the number of hubs that you did is why your hubber score is low and the hub scores will go up as they age and are read. I hope this helps you. Good luck and welcome.

      Thank you very much for these wonderful suggestions. I will remember them.

    I think a low hub score can mean a lot of things, and I think mostly those scores are related to basic things like good content, proper grammar and structure, and strong SEO techniques.  You also have to write about things that the outside world wants to read.  People may not care about how you trained your dog to beg, but they might really be interested to learn what happened when he got an intestinal infection and the steps you took to help him get better.  It takes time to learn everything, and it also takes time for Google to find your hubs.  I've been here a month and Google is just now starting to find me...but I've also gone back and made a lot of changes and improvements.
