Why? Can someone please tell me why my hub started off with such a low hubscore?
I really need some advice on how to create hubs that start off with a higher hubscore. 44? That's embarrassing. But apparently I need help.
All hubs start at 50, but from the moment you've claimed the URL that number will fluctuate.
Does it matter that it's 44? Once it's got traffic and it rises what it was when it was first published will have no bearing on its success at all.
I don't know if it matters or not if it's a 44. It just seems to be rather low, don't you think? Doesn't that low number potentially make it more difficult to get the traffic needed to raise the hubscore?
1) It doesn't matter.
2) Hubscore doesn't not effect traffic. Maybe later a top hubscore will get you listed on best hubs or hot hubs. Traffic effects hubscore. A brand new hub will see its hubscore improve if you immediately promote it, get backlinks or if you have (real) fans who are notified every time you publish a new hub. Hubscore can't hold back a quality hub. But the quality of the hub can effect your hubscore.

I've had this issue too. Even though all of mine start at a 50 or so, they SHOULD rise to a much hugher score, yet they don't ost of the time. I have A LOT of feedback and A LOT of views, butmy scores are low, so I think Hub Land doesn't know what they are doing.

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total hub count is now way down, so that instead of 10 more hubs to 100, I've now got to...

I thought I knew the answer to this question. But something interesting happened in the last week which I found it hard to explain. I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just reached 250-300 hits per day.I was experimenting to see how many tags I could use...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?
