    I recently published a hub, and it got out of the review process yesterday and is receiving the most views of all my pages.  I noticed my daily pay didn't bump at all and got suspicious... lo and behold there are no ads on the page and I just noticed that I have been given a hubscore of 48 on it!

    There is no "warning" about ads being disabled- they simply aren't there.

    If I were getting paid, I'd say live and let live, but since I'm not - if this isn't fixed I'm going to have to delete the hub and move it to my own domain so it can actually benefit me.

      Edit: I think I know the problem.  Whatever algorithm is being used to determine score is classing my crochet pattern as gibberish.  These are standard abbreviations readable to anyone who crochets.  I would appreciate this being fixed.

        That's because it is gibberish.  To dummy me, anyway! big_smile

        You know, this could be a problem that I've never run across before.  Still, it passed the QAP, so someone (or several someones) smarter than I am recognized it's not bad grammar or spelling and graded it accordingly.

        I wouldn't worry too much about the score, though - I think all hubs start out at 40 or 45 now; it should climb with time.

          There are several women who write hubs about crochet on here, and they are very good. I would recommend Patrice Walker, she writes a blog about crochet, but before that she wrote many hubs about it here, and if I recall, used the abbreviations. I'm sure she would be happy to help you.

      Hey Tealparadise,
      Just checked your Hub- there are definitely ads on it. Perhaps you were checking it when it was still Pending...? At least all's well that ends well!

        You're right !  I must have gotten freaked out by the low score.  But as wilderness says that is usual now, I will try to calm down haha.
