I have a 2700+ word, programming code hub that routinely racks up 500+ visits a month these days.
Some mturk just piddled on it and gave it a hubscore of 59.
Lots of luck me seeing HP putting that hub in the Discover More Hubs sections...
Not to mention my paranoia re: my profile score dropping below the 85, no-follow demarcation.
And now I have to buy a new teddy bear. Cuz I just ripped off the head of my current one.
OK. Rant concluded. Back to my nap.
Keep trying. When your hub is that long you should try to read it over a few times, or even have others read it before submission. You may be surprised at the errors that you discover each time you read.
Sorry to hear that someone scored your informative Hub badly.
I believe no-follow only happens when your HubPages author score is 75 or below, so you shouldn't have anything to worry about on that note.
The new threshold is 85, not 75. I saw that confirmed by Matthew, I do believe, in another official "yellow" notice me post.
You are not the only one having issues with Mturk.............
I should have posted this rant on bubblews and gotten a dollar for it.
I am sorry to hear this. I wish you luck with that hub. Poor Teddy, though! How can you nap peacefully without a teddy bear?
sorry to hear yr problem n my heartfelt to yr poor teddy
I will pray for your teddy bear. Or for a new one to show up.
Meanwhile, I just encountered something up with which I am fed. Another story, for another time.
Uh-oh. Anything I can help with?
Meanwhile, I'm starting to become afraid to update my hubs.
On a more cheerful note, I've been a productive little critter today. Getting things done all over the place.
Thanks for the offer - you know I love you. I posted a thread about a Hubber who lost her brother, and it's just plain gone now. I think it's because I added a comment about an incident years ago when he organized a (very appropriate, but 'interesting') protest against a group widely known for hate crimes.
Assuming my reference to that incident (which was openly reported in family newspapers) led to the thread being nuked, why didn't they just delete the problem, not the whole thread? The Hubber sure needs our thoughts and prayers.
Thanks for asking. I just feel . . . Odd. And a bit frustrated.
Where is the Topics forum? It's not showing up on my history of posts. Can't find that forum.

Thanks - I'm glad it didn't get deleted, but I am sure I didn't put it in Health. Makes no sense, considering the times we see similar posts here. Oh well.
I need to post some fun here. Maybe we will get your teddy bear back (emotionally). Stay tuned.
There is a Teddy Bear store somewhere where we can help him build a new teddy -- maybe with a HubPages logo on a little hoodie for the bear.
Did somebody steal it? My best hub was stolen, dropped lower than a snakes hips,. Took months for it to rebound. You should investigate..

I've been a niche writer mostly since joining HP (home repair and such) and feel I've done rather well for myself having started with zero experience. For that I'm grateful and pleasantly surprised. However......I have other interests and though I don't plan on abandoning my home helper Hubs, I...

Hi Hubbers!Or what is it we call ourselves here? LOL - Sorry, I’m a Squid until now, so I’m fairly new to the depths of Hub. I’m wondering if anyone has tips on what makes a Hub rank well?Now I know no one knows the perfect algorithm used, but basically, like on Squidoo, there are...

Hi I received an email about one of my hubs, which said:'Violation: Overly Promotional - Solely or excessively promotes another site(s), especially when Hub links all point to one site.'Accordingly, I reduced the number of Amazon products and I got rid of the Amazon RSS feed. I then submitted it...
