Do hubs created to answer questions always start at a low rates?
I've created a hub to answer a question and the rate provided to this hub was 45. Have a look before you answer please and give me the feed back. http://hubpages.com/_1fmid2lwhgk2v/hub/ … brown-rice
Not necessarily. Depends a great deal on the keywords you use, the topic, and a few other issues. The hub looks very well written, so I am sure it will shoot upward in hubscore very soon.
Fyi, there is a place for hub makeovers in the forms.
I like the article overall. Very informative and you laid it out to look quite nice. But on a keyword and seo level I would question several things.
Starting with the picture and not taking advantage of keyword placement. Some of the headers could be phrased better for word placement.
The topic is rice but it seems like more people would be searching for the benefits of rice, Do you look at word density or not?
And lastly, rice is rice - I like basmati like maggie suggested. but overall it is not killing the internet with searches.
I don't mean to sound harsh - I thought you did a beautiful job on the hub, those are a couple of things I would look at if I was looking to make money or a higher rating.
And don't forget rating doesn't always mean anything. I had a hub that started out at 48 and it is 88 or so atm. It just takes time to raise and some start lower b/c of how hp rates them.

To date, I have been denied permission to ask and/or answer questions because of revenge? mark downs by disgruntled hubbers. I get blocked for a while, then un-blocked, then blocked again. Also some of my Q&As are deleted by HP staff without notice or a chance to defend my position. The Q&A...

When I look at the questions section of hubpages I see pages and pages of silly questions. A lot of the time, when I click on "unanswered" or "latest" I see that the same person has asked ten or so questions in a row. I suspect that in most cases this is because of the fact that...

Does anyone else's hub score seem to go down if you ask and answer questionsI answered a good few questions a while back and my hub score dropped has this happened to anyone else. Or does anyone know the reason.

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I asked a question about recipes and received lots of great replies. How do I make a...
