Confused about my hubscore

    Hi there...I just published the hub below and am confused why the starting score is so much lower than other hubs.  In comparison I took an extensive amount of time making sure to include tons of unique content,photos, videos, links,referrals....so I am so confused why it started at 46 when most of my newly published hubs start around 60's?  Any ideas.  I really appreciate anyone who takes the time to respond.  Thanks!

    In my experience hubs always start below 50 unless you have had the draft for a long time before publishing.

      Hmmm...ok. Well thanks for the input! Guess I need to be more patient. It's just that usually my hubs are around 60...?

        If you leave a hub unpublished for a few days the score usually goes up.  I've had some score in the 70's before being published.  smile

            It really doesn't matter, this is only HP's scoring system, so it is far better to publish quickly and let Google start evaluating it properly. As soon as you publish, your hub will start gaining credibility and position in the search engines. Leaving it unpublished to get a few points on an internal ranking system (that is not particularly reliable at first) is not a good move.

              I agree, Misty.  I don't intentionally not publish a hub in order to get a good opening hubscore.  It's just my hubs are usually a while in the making because of the research it takes to produce them.  I'm sorta long winded too! (understatement)lol

                lol, I know you know this Randy, loads don't though, and there is even a misguided rumour going about that the score going 'up' on an unpublished hub is a Google ranking, even though Google can't even 'see' the hub until it is published.

                  So true, Misty!  Yep, rumors are indeed running rampant about all sorts of things here lately.  Some are even true!  lol
