    I am not sure if there is soemthing with the title of this hub or what but it has gotten a really low score. Of course it may be something going on with Hubpages ranking system. Any ideas are gtreatly appreciated.

      Don't worry.. My recent 3 pages are scoring less than 40..

      there is some system failure or change effecting in Hubpages.. I think..

      Can someone confirm..

    While you are awaiting responses, you might want to read this thread on the Forum, currently on page 1. "Hubscore 31 after testing".

    She had the same problem and some hubbers have left comments which you might find helpful.

    I would also like to know since my latest hub is also showing a very low score.

    I don't know for sure SirDent, but as I read your Hub two things came to mind.  First, using the words fatal and death could send up a red flag for violent content.  I believe that's not acceptable under Google content guidelines.  Second, your Scriptures could be registering as a possible cut and paste of text.  I didn't take time to notice what version of the Bible you were using, but the only ones I know of in the public domain is King James and Douay-Rheims.  All others could be copyrighted material.

    BristolBoy, again, I can't be sure, but when I read your Hub, what came to mind was "overly promotional".  As I understand it, Hubs written to only promote other businesses are not allowed. I think it's under the 'help' section.  If that's how they are looking at you Hub, it will make a difference in your score.

      Yes thats what I originally thought initially.  However after reading these forums it appears it has happened to many people, so I think it may be a wider problem but I agree that mine may be linked to it being overly promotional/spam!

      Loads and loads of translations are out of copyright!

    I went to Biblegateway.com and they listed two more English version Bibles that are public domain:  American Standard Version and Young's Literal Translation.  The other versions all have some sort of copyright.  That doesn't mean you can't use it.  Some say you can use quotes as long as you reference the source.  Some have some pretty specific wording they want you to use when you quote from their version.  Some limit the number of verses you can use.  I would think not matter what book you are quoting from, first the text would need to be in quotations and next, there would need to be some reference to the source.

    Maybe jus remove the specific scripture and link to the source may help hmm n add the psalm n paragraph

    My hub I posted earlier today is 100% original, not promoting anything, and the score has been hovering between 23 and 22, which has never happened to me before.

      Yea same thing happened to me ,didnt expect it to be too high ,tested 49 , then fell to 32 fast!!
      Finally its climbing.

      I dont get how a hubscore can keep climbing for individual hubs ,even with traffic falling??

      p.s
      I just scrolled and read Dame's scripture and psalms thing and though omg Ive posted in the wrong thread lol

    Strange - I just posted one at 47. The only thing that I can think of is that it has a lot of photographs.

    There is some weird stuff going on, and all is silent hmm

      Paul's in a meeting, and he's the one who can check into stuff like this.  Hang tight, gang, it's on the radar.

      Eaglekiwiposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      well they were pretty hard to avoid flying up ,an on ,an on in Hubtivity!!.....

      Dont get me wrong Im all for acknowledging stats etc ,but something must have been wrong for it to be repeating. (like it was on a loop)

  12. cindyvine profile image84
    cindyvineposted 8 years ago

    I never ever see medals flying up in my hubtivity.  Never see any medals!  How do you get to see them?  Gosh, now I feel all left out.

      Cindyvine Medal http://tbn3.google.com/images?q=tbn:idaPWF7zmzHCTM:http://patrickweb.com/images/clipart.com/south_africa1.jpg
      p.s

      I just have always seen 'medals' awarded via Hubtivity, I dont know if it was something I enabled or not?

    cindyvineposted 8 years ago

    Thanks Maddie because a score of 21-23 on a new hub is verrrrrrry low.

  14. cindyvine profile image84
    cindyvineposted 8 years ago

    Thanks for the medal lol.  Yeah, obviously I don't have it enabled because I've never seen medals

      Eaglekiwiposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Funny ,cuz now I never relised you could disable!! ( if its even an option)...usually though it flows through my Hubtivity round 10-11pm most nights ...from a few to several( except that last occurence I mentioned).

      Come to think about it ,wouldnt be too bad disabling a few topics, hehe,rather than medals.

    I had already commented about the low score issue in another thread, but I too noticed the medals going like crazy yesterday and today.
