    What makes up a hubscore?  How are they scored and by what are they scored?

    Is it content?  If so, is it judged by big words, pictures, polls, links... Subject?  I'm just curious. I heard somewhere that they all start at 50.  FALSE!  I just posted one and it was a 49. (guess HP thinks I'm a bad writer?!)

    The first section of the site FAQ answers your question, at least to the extent that it contains the only details that HubPages has ever revealed about wha goes into HubScores.

    Here's the link from the learning center http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/hubs … ber-score.

    And they would all start at 50 if they were published immediately after creation. (If you wrote the hub ahead of time, copy/pasted it all together and published it.) But hubpages can gather some statistics from unpublished hubs. There's a few hubs I've been meaning to write in response to questions. So I start the hub, get my tags and title and leave it till I feel like writing it. Sometimes the scores drop down to 46, sometimes they rise to about 64.

    None of that really matters until the score stabilizes a few weeks later.

      So weird. I'm going to have to go read about all of this I guess. Because I just sat down and wrote that hub and when I hit "publish" it said 46. It's up above a 50 now. I guess I just don't understand the significance of the number. Thanks!!

      It's a way to convey to the author how popular the hub is with google. It takes a couple weeks to even out so don't worry about it for right now. Though if it stays below the 60's you're probably going to want to edit it.

    many hubbers have asked this but it depends on a lot of factors like page views ad clicks number of days the hub has been launched etc

      The question I meant to ask:why do some that I post start at 46 and some at 68?  It's weird because it seems like the more technical I am, or the more capsules I put in, the lower the score initially. Maybe one day it will be figured out!
