I created a Hub on Personal Branding for Executives using two photos and a video. I did an interview with my source, Gayl Murphy, who provided me with the photos and video.
There were 28 views in the past 14 hours since it went up.
I've not had a Hub with a score so low.
Could it be that my links to her site and my marketing blog were penalized by Hubpages as being too commercial?
I link to her information twice - about halfway into the Hub and later and once to my blog . . . also deep down in the Hub.
i created a hub on snake venom and hubscore is 39. There is no outgoing link other than to my own hubs in the hub. Is their any problem with hubscore?
If I understand your last question, maybe it shouldn't bother me except I don't have any Hubs below the mid-50s. I was surprised to see it so low.
I just don't want to be penalized.
Is it possible that you're getting down-rated? I just up-rated the hub, but I do have a suggestion:
You have four links in the hub (which should be fine), but two of them direct to the same site, and it isn't necessary to use the same link twice (since they are back-to-back). I would take out one of those links and take it down to three different contextual links (and then perhaps use a links capsule at the end as well). You should be fine. I'm not sure about the low score! Sorry!
Maybe it is to do with the problems that the site is having - stats updating seems to be slow. Why not leave it a day or two, and see if there is any change?
Aniket, I don't know what to say to you because your hub looks absolutely fine. Even Google is giving you great contextual ads on your page. I did a "copied material" check on it as well and of course it's not copied. And in fact quite a good article! I might link to it from my Venomous Snakes of North America hub!
Looks like debris is having problems with his total pageviews.
I can't work it out lol, I spent 6 hours sitting here thinking for my latest hub last night and writing it, everything is from my mind so it is 100% original, no links...yet it is still in 50's, they normally start around 70, crazy lol.
Thanks for your input . . . Blondepoet, your scores normally start around 70s?
I will take out one of the links as Everyday Miracles suggests.
Yes I take a few days coming back to it and getting it ready, and hit the publish button when it is around 70, I have no idea why it is so... My lookalike hub started off at 75, yet my self esteem I did the other night would not go past 48 I think, so I thought what the heck, let's get this baby on the road ROFL.xo
P.s Damn why are my sunglasses not on....grrr...I just looked at you Don and I can see a celebrity look-a-like for you, am now scratching my head thinking of his name. Darn this is what happens when I see a nice pic ROFL
One of my hubs started off recently as a 38! I'm not sure why, but it stayed at 38 for about 12 uours and then 48 hours later it was in the 80's
Glad to see this..I just ranked a 45 or 47 for a cash back resource article I have for pictures. I will check my links. I will also wait a few days.It has to be hubpages.
I guess my hubs just suck, because they always start out in the forties. But I just do this for sport. So I never worry about it.
But I hope it works out for ya.
In my experience they start off at 50. I edit them over several days and at first they can drop down to the low forties. Then by then time I have finished editing them they have drifted back up to around 70 and this is the score they have when I publish them. Maybe this is all you are experiencing?
Someone once told me that if you write your hub and then leave it for a few days before publishing it, you'll see the score go up. Then you can choose to publish it once the score is at a 'comfy' rate for you. Seems to work.
Cindy! You have 100 Hubber Score! I remember you saying you hadn't had that! Congrats!
Time usually takes care of low scores as long as you're bringing inside and outside traffic and your hub is well designed for it's niche.
I've found that recently, like the last few weeks, newly published hubs just start off much lower than they used to (like high 30s to high 40s) instead of high 60s or 70s. If you made a solid hub that gets some visits, some votes, over time I've found that it just fixes itself. As long as you make very good Hubs then I don't think this is really a problem. It fixes itself in a few days.
I think they are editing their scoring system. I have seen some very low scores even a score of 2 and 5 there was nothing wrong with them so I voted Up to help.
A way to get you hub above 70 is to edit it for a few days before publishing it. edit a little bit at a time, even if you copy and paste keep the hubpage editor open. This should help. Seems this may be part of hubpages duplicate content filter. If you create a hub in a few minutes the score starts low, All my hubs except for the first have started above 70
Maybe you've got a point there getpaidtopost! I'm usually a put it up and publish it kind of hubber. The one hub I had unpublished for a couple of days because I wasn't too happy with it started off with a higher score. Otherwise I start at 50, plummet quickly to around 40, then slowly start climbing.

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I...

Okay, so I am asking a quiestion about my hubscore because the whole idea of a hubscore seems a little cryptic to me at this point. Yesterday I passed the 75 threshold for the first time. And today I saw my...
