Hub Score Plumetting

  1. Mighty Mom profile image84
    Mighty Momposted 9 years ago

    This has never happened to me before. I published a new hub last night. It started with a score of 45. So far I've got 13 comments on there. My hubber score has gone up. But the score of this hub is showing as 42 -- I didn't think a hub could ever GO below the score it started at?
    Can someone explain why this would be?
    It is not flagged.
    Thanks. MM

      You may want to put a news feed "hmo's in the news" And there weren't too many amazon choices there. But other than that it is very interesting. Can you use the Kaiser permanente trademarked logo? Just curious.

      Same with mine, it will balance out over the next few days, fear not MM !

    Mine all do that, but only for a day or so and then they start rising again.

    I had the same thing on one of my hubs. Started out a 49 and then down to 43 for a day before slowly climbing.

    My hubs do that too. Makes me feel like a real loser. Thank you for posting, I feel a little less like a loser now.

    mine do that to than I feel like abandoning them or deleting them when they fall like that. Guess need to generate traffic but you seem to have a lot of interest.

    It's not uncommon for them to adjust like this. After a few days it'll start to stabilize.

    I had one a while back that went all the way down to 1, so I changed the name of it and it went up to 100 in about a week or so Many of mine tend to go up and down, though and none of anyone's stay exactly the same for long. And - if you answer a request and there are other answers already, yours may go down and then rise as the others in the set go down - or not.

    If the score continues to drop and you do not have duplicate content or content/onfo that is very widely available on the Internet, try a new title.

    My hubs always go down 1-5 points after publication, don't worry.

    Thanks everyone. I feel a little better. I think. Just haven't started under 50 AND gone DOWN. We'll see if it rises. Newsfeed is a great idea! Content is 100% out of MM's head -- except for the paragraph pulled out of the COBRA letter.

    Do I have clearance to use Kaiser's logo? No. Do I hope they come after me? YES! Just kidding. I don't think there is any question of confusing the marketplace. I'm not trying to represent myself as an HMO with the name Kaiser. And I most certainly am not trying to claim endorsement by Kaiser of my hub. LOL.

    Thanks again.
