But.... what is the starting score on your hub and what is it based on? Is it the same across the board?
If you create and publish a Hub right away, they all start out at 50, which is the mid-range of the possible score.
I got a 49 on one I wrote last night, that's why I was asking. Thanks for the input.
I published a new hub the other day, it received a hub score of 49 too.
It wasn't filled with a lot of writing. It has some and about 6-8 pictures.
So, I'm not exactly sure.
The hub I published before that...started out at 50. And, this one had more writing on it and no pictures.
Sorry, I wasn't much help.
Start out with a lot of content - 800 words is what I shoot for, to start. Put in some pictures, add different elements.
As you get more traffic, the scores will go up
If your hubscore is important to you:
Write half of it then save.
Come back after 1 day and finish it. Your score will be above 50 or possibly 60 just by waiting.
Thanks for the advise, I didn't know that worked like that, I'm usually so determined to hit publish when I'm done.
You can always go back and edit. Add new stuff etc. This will also raise your score
I'm doing one right now that has 1200+ words, two vids, and 7 pictures. I wont have it done until sunday, I took a day off work to get writing it LOL and do the graphics
Don't really worry about the score to be honest. In my first two weeks on the site I was really paranoid about getting good scores, I'm not sure but the trend that I have been seeing with my hubs is that they rise from 49 or 50 to around 75 after 1 or two days. They then are fluctuating between 73-82 sometimes in 1 day. Just focus on writing quality content. You probably hate hearing something like that, I did, but I've come to realise that being happy with what you have written is paramount to anything else.

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I am wondering why that happens and if it is any indication of how good the hub...

Hi everybody! I'm new to HubPages, and I just published my first hub, a free verse poem. I got a HubScore of 54 on it, so I'm worried that it isn't good enough and needs to be improved somehow. Is my writing quality not good enough? Should there be more capsules on the page, or should I put in an...

This week we will begin assessing older Hubs that haven't yet gone through the Quality Assessment Process. Instead of only holding newly-published Hubs to the heightened quality bar introduced in March, ALL published Hubs will need to meet minimum quality requirements in order to remain or become...

When I first publish a hub it usually starts with a hubscore in the 40’s, occasionally low 50’s. I don’t care, it’s never bothered me because I know they slowly work their way up. However, my last hub that I published started with something like a 46. This hub has over 1600 words, a dozen...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?
