Anybody else notice that the initial score on Hubs you publish went down?
Pretty much all the Hubs I published would start out with a score of 55. The latest 2 Hubs started out at around 45. Is this absolutely random or is there a reason? Has anyone else noticed this?
I have the feeling that it has something to do with the title too. If the title is catchy and gripping, the initial score is higher. When the title is a drab one, it starts with a lower score. I wrote a hub, and by mistake, pressed 'publish' without any content,.The score was already there, a good one. Even a long hub failed to fetch that starting score. Then I got the message that it was still unpublished as there was no content.
Yes I have noticed this and it has to do with computer algorithms as well as key words in your title.

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

Is there a benefit to waiting to publish your hub?Is there a benefit for waiting for your hub score to become higher before hitting the publish button?

Wrote a a book review. Initial score 46. Delete or publish? Never had an initial score this low.If I wrote a hub that was basically a book review and it only shows a score of 46 which is the lowest I've ever seen should I delete rather than publish?
