    But.... what is the starting score on your hub and what is it based on? Is it the same across the board? hmm

    Confused,

    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.

      No problem, you were helpful, at least I know now that others can get a 49 and it's not just me. Thanks for commenting!

    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 wink

    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 smile

    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.

      The scores are frustrating, but I am with you about being happy with your writing.
