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?
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.
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! 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!
Try HP Learning Center for how to gain traffic and also social media. Take care!
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.
Ask yourself - what do scores give you?
Do they bring you traffic? Do they bring you money? No.

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

I have been experimenting with Google to find new techniques to drive more search traffic and I found one that is quite silly but has doubled my traffic within about a week of updating my hub.Here it is: THE RATING CAPSULEIt's really quite silly, but I added a rating capsule to the bottom of my...

As asked in title. I know it's subjective, but in your opinion, what is the lowest score you would allow an article to remain up before editing or un-publishing it?Understand that I am new here, so putting feelers out on how to do it right!

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...
