New Hub stopped rising at rating of 61

    For the first time, on only the second day since it was published, a hub stopped escalating.  Last night before I went to bed it was rated 61, it's the same rating today.  That can't be good.  May I get an opinion or two from long-term hubbers please?

      I would really, really, really not worry about it! I don't want to see you troubled by something that, in all likelihood, will pass on its own.

      Might I invite you to do what I do and ignore HubScores all together? big_smile

    it may be a pause, it may be that will be it's rating/  I have hubs that rate that low despite looking fine to me.

    Hub scores change regularly. A hub may have same rating for a few days and then change to something else.

      I wouldn't worry so much about the score. Just keep writing which you love to do and your scores will get better. p.s. I also have some that low...

    Thanks for the opinions.  I was wondering about that.  Now I have some basic insight.

    I agree with Simone Smith.  Ignore Hub Scores.  Write from the heart.  Write from your inner self.  Do not worry about scores or appeasing others.

    Um, unless that is not the reason for your writing.  Because people are all different, and stuff.

    While I am not the most experienced hubber, I can share my experience and in short tell you Do Not Worry!  Some hubs stop for a while and out of the blue (no color pun intended) the red "raising counts" arrow appears and it gains more traffic than I ever thought.  Some seemed stagnant and after publishing another somewhat related hub, both seemed to rise.  Do Not Worry!  smile  Some hubs will be a hit long run and seem to have a regular flow of traffic and others will stop, possibly making us hubbers nervous and they will pick up again.  maybe one hub was never popular but gave a flow of 1 to 2 hits per week or month..it is still giving something.  keep going! smile

      Funnily enough, I was sick for a few days and when I returned, the article in question had risen significantly.  I didn't know what to expect with that one; but all turned out for the best.  The insight I gain here is wonderful, so thanks to all that responded.

        I like WryLit's answer.  and glad you feel better.  I wrote in error thinking you were referring to hub view counts.  But the same philosophy applies. WryLit's comment says it all!

    Ask yourself - what do scores give you?

    Do they bring you traffic? Do they bring you money? No. smile

      How true.  I hadn't thought of it that way.  Great point.  Thanks!
