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.
I have notice the same thing when I published any hub my highest score will not more than 55 dont know why..
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.
No...Never.I have been writing new topics for more than a year.My score have never gone down.But U need to be careful that the article posted is genuine.

I recently got my lowest score ever for a book review on Kate Chopin's novel, The Awakening.Anyone want to give me some feedback? Usually my scores start around 50 and go up as I construct the hub.The entire review is my original writing. I didn't copy any text.

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...

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What should I read into that? Most people say that one should not concern...

As asked in title. I know it's subjective, but in your opinion, what is the lowest score you would allow an article to remain up before editing or un-publishing it?Understand that I am new here, so putting feelers out on how to do it right!

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...
