Hub Ratings vs No Rating

    I have noticed that some hubs have no rating on them. Does this mean they are not being circulated in the published articles?  When can our transported lenses/hubs expect to see these on our articles that have no violations?

    If you do not have a solid black circle, on right side of Hub title, then it is in QAP, not featured yet.  Look at bottom of hub list to see what, if any symbols that may be next to your hub title, mean.

      LInda, on the dashboard where it lists the articles there is a black circle with an H in it saying it's featured. What I'm referring to is when you see it live, along the categories and sub-categories there are no numbers like other hubs have. 

      I thought that our transferred articles that were without violations would stay in their ranking.  It looks like they aren't placed at all.

    I don't quite understand.  The black circle means it is featured, indexed.
    On Account page with the list of hubs, there is a score number which is HP score, not Squidoo score.  If you have put hubs in groups, that is for you. Each hub title won't have the hub score there. 

    If you click on hub title to bring it up, you will see it like public sees it.  Each hub does not show hub score to readers. The only place you see Hub Score is on your accounts page.

      Hope this helps Linda. Not to point anyone out, but this is what I mean on a published Hub page.
      Explore»Travel and Places (17,805)»Visiting North America (4,919)»Canada (341)»Visiting British Columbia (35)

      None of the transported articles have this and they were not supposed to go through QAP, because they were already well established articles.  I was wondering when they would be placed back in the rankings so we can regain our traffic.

      Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.

    I have no idea as to what that is or how it gets on top of hub.  I am finding something at the top on travel hubs.  I just did a test hub set up. If it was a real hub, it would be my first travel and places one.  HP automatically put my name, travel and places that if clicked on it takes you to other travel and places hubs I may have and my profile page.  I found the hub you are referring to. If you click on Explore, it takes you to a ton of travel hubs by various writers.  This is built in by HP.   The numbers are not stats, scores, anything to do with hubber or Squidoo.  The numbers represent number of hubs written on those specific topic.

      OK, on Squidoo numbers represented where your article was in the ranking and tier levels that had to do with payout sharings.  Guess we'll be finding lots of things different and so that's why we ask. You've been a big help Linda. Thanks for taking the time to answer.

    favored:  HP does not pay in tiers. Every hub we write can earn for us.  As long as our hubs are featured, then they are indexed in search engines.  The Squidoo competition is no more. … y-HubPages

      Good to know. I'll check the link.  You've been such a help. I appreciate it.

    I understood those numbers to be the number of articles (Hubs) in that particular category.

    Richard: Yes for the ones at top of hubs like travel and places.
