What determines the starting value of a hub post?
My most recent was the lowest hub post starting score ever, even though my hubber score is at its highest.
actually, my latest hub started at 45 - and others have started above 50, so I'm not sure that is correct. I understand that the number climbs as it gets views, comments, ratings - or falls from lack thereof, but every hub I've written thus far (all 4 of them lol) have had a different starting number. In fact, even my very first hub had a starting score over 50!
Starting hub scores fluctuate sometimes below 50, sometimes above 50. Depending on what I'm writing about and the amount of research needed, sometimes I let my hubs "incubate" as drafts before I release them for publication. I like seeing the hub score number increase before publication, when actually no one has seen the hub yet.
Good question, Toni! I've been wondering the same thing. I like the idea of letting hubs "incubate." I had unintentionally stumbled on that option myself in working on one of my longer hubs. I'll be following this to see what other answers come.
