    Does writing on a new topic mean a bad hub score?

    I am writing a new hub. The score has dropped to 43 before I've published it. Normally I see it rise as I add more text and other capsules. Is this because I'm writing on a new topic?

    No, the topic has nothing to do with. Before a hub is published its score is based on keywords commonalities.
    Example; Cyanotype Photographic Techniques. HP will look at Cyanotype-Photographic-Techniques as separate words and will assign a score to each word. Cyanotype is a rarely used word, so it gets a high score.

    The word Photographic and Techniques are common words so their score is lower. The average scores of the words within the title is what gives your hub a pre-publication score. Other things such as the number of words have an effect also.

    After it is published the score rises or falls depending on the number of visitors.

    That's a great explanation. Thank you Luis.

    I now have a better idea of what I've been doing right ... and can think about approaching this new topic more cleverly

    I am just going to say I agree with Luis. I see no need for redundancy here.

    No,I don't think so.In fact, writing on a new topic means your work is some thing different from others.and that should get more views as people will come to know about something new and not just typical type.

    But it happens here.When i posted my Hub for the best proved home remedies and that also something which I had tried so many years back..I wrote in my words, then also I got the feed back as 'Duplicate'.I had supported some proved facts by quotations.I still don't understand this.

    Well, anyways, so you don't have to worry about this and do post your Unique Hub.Best of Luck.

    Great question!!  I am new and have no answer, but wanted to thank you for asking a question I have rattling around in my head!  Luis, thanks for a clear and precise answer!  It makes sense now!  I will definitely spend more time thinking about titles!

    Great explanation Luis!  Until now I really had no clue how the pre-published score was calculated.  I honestly clicked on this question to read the answers.  Thanks Luis!

    I have the same feeling too. When I joined, after a few days, judging by the way my score was going up, I felt I would reach 100 in no time. But, I had thought too soon, for the next day my score went down 2 points, and further down, and still further, then up. and up, and up, and  then down again and again and again. Still it is going down. Very frustrating!. Now I dread to write even because it all had to do with three or four hubs a day, Great irony there!

    No, not really, I've done many hubs with the same format, just a different topic and content!

    thanks Louis excellent answer.  That explains a lot.  Although I am still unsure do extra capsules always increase the HubScore?

    Thanks Luis! I voted up on that answer as I did not know that and now I do, and knowing is half the battle.

    There are a variety of factors that go into the score.  Usually when you first publish the hub it will have a lower score.  Unique content, visitors, and comments can all add to your score.

    No. Your Hubscore increases with the amount of validity in it. The more people that use your hub as a reference in their hub will increase your Hubscore. Also, using lots of references in YOUR hub will increase your hub score. It will gradually increase the more people view it as a reliable source.

    Wow, I am glad I decided to take a look at the answers. Luis you have explained it so well. I was just gonna say that if the topic is popular the score is lower with a higher score for less popular ones. The category has something to do with it too. If the category has been extensively covered then the score might be lower and vise versa for the least covered categories.
