Published a hub today and it seems to have received a 1 for a hubscore.
It is a featured hub as well.
Could you please advised why it has received such a bad hub score. Like it terrible!!!
It possibly is a glitch. It has happened to me on my other account where a hub I published was featured with a hub score of zero. How can a featured Hub start at zero? Unless something has changed that we do not know about, I think it might be a system error.
Eventhough it has raised to a 7 now, YEAH!!! it has brought my hubpage profile score down and also other hub that was linked to it has also dropped! Hubpages, HELP!!!
Your hubs receive scores based on the QAP scores. The hub may not be bad enough to not feature but still need extensive work in order to get excellent scores. Try updating the hub and see what happens.
Organised Kaos, I'm way ahead of you. The featured hub I published yesterday started at 0, and is now at a stratospheric 11! Seriously, I searched for this topic to see if this was listed as some kind of bug. I'm wondering if it has to do with HP staffing over the holiday. Anyway, it's good to know I'm not alone.
We are looking into the issue.
So far it looks like it was a transient issue affecting a subset of Hubs.
Scores should gradually be fixed.
I will post updates as I have them.
Thanks for taking time to report the issue and for your continued patience.
I am not impressed. Yesterday I published a hub on a new account and it had a score of -1 (minus one, although it was featured). Now that was special!
I had one that I just published with a 1 also, when they usually start in the 70's. I just unpublished it and put it on my blog.
HP has a new system for 2014. It awards '1' for the best in category - Congratulations!

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...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

Happy Friday, Hubbers!Next week we will be raising the quality threshold for newly-published Hubs (meaning newly-Featured Hubs will, on the whole, be of higher quality) and will also be giving Featured Hubs (for those with high Hubber Scores) longer grace periods- up to a year for some.More...

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my lowest scoring hubs either..it is right across the board. Is anyone else...
