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.

I find it kind of ridiculous that I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for one of my hubpages to be published. What was the longest time you have ever had it take to get a hubpage to publish?

I've been updating and removing hubs. I haven't settled on a plan for good hubs that don't get traffic. Curious what others do. My top 40 hubs are 85% of traffic. I culled the heard and have been focused on my best hubs.Once I'm through them I'll come up with a plan for the rest.

Anyone who knows SEO knows that Google prefers fresh content but when our newely published hubs undergo the 24 hour pending publication with a no index tag added to the robot txt our hubs loose their freshness by the time the no index tag is taken off therefore Google does not give our hubs the...
