Hi . My new hub got 29 visitors in 6 hours. As a newbie I feel quite content. But score is 50.Why?
Your hub score starts at zero and slowly rises. This is a method the site uses to weed out the spammers. As time goes on you will see your score continue to rise, so long as you write good hubs and interact regularly with the community.
I hope this helps.
From what I've seen on HP the formula for figuring out scores (whether for hubs or your profile) seems to be a mystery, or at least a well guarded secret. What I have noticed in my own writing is that the more interest a hub sparks is improtant, but then do those readers stay and read the whole article? do they submit comments on it? Do they vote on it (up, down, useful,etc)? Your involvement in other activities on HP is also important, because as you answer questions, ask questions, contribute to forums, and actually follow the people you "follow" more people will do the same for you.
I have noticed that if you have misspellings and several grammar mistakes, it will bring your hub score down. Also, if you look at the link area in edit, you will see a space that gives you a potential hub score. That is the highest you will be able to get on that hub.
I am still learning but hope this helps.

What is considered a good hub score? How do I improve my hub score?

Newbie question: What is the difference between QAP (1 to 10) and Hub Score (which is WAY higher)?Or maybe a better question is: Where do I find the QAP rating for my hubs? Hub Score is obvious in stats.

Would any of you suggest 'reporting' an obvious newbie who has obviously not read anything of the rules and protocols here, whose profile includes no bio and indicates having joined but 2 hours prior, and whose...

Do you add content to your worst-performing Hub or your best to make it even better? Do you add content to the low-scoring Hubs before the high scorers? What else do you think when you decide when or if to add content...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...
