What do you figure is an average Hub score?
Just wondering. Just kind of mathematics's logic would say it is fifty.
There are a ton of different factors they consider when figuring out the scores. I've written a few bare minimum poetry hubs. They're between 100-200 words, no pictures, boring title, back when I didn't have a whole lot of followers and nobody really searches poetry online anyway. Those hubs would float at about 65.
So unless you're doing really, really terrible content or copying from somewhere else online you're not going to get lower than about 60. Especially since hubs start out at about 50 so mathematically the average would be about 75. Which sounds about right to me, maybe a little closer to 80.
Thank you very much for that thoughtful answer. I am doing something wrong. So we will see.
What do you mean you're doing something wrong? I checked your profile and you seem to be doing fine.
Oh nice lady I doing more than fine. Shucks it has been a year and I just realized I could do stuff like advertise and network. I just posted a hub, 49. So far, over 10 comments in three hours. I am having a blast. I just like the numbers like baseba
Got it. I really enjoy watching the numbers change as well.
in my opinion 65 - 75 is a average and above 80 can consider as excellent
Your poser sent me reeling to look at my hub score... I have several unpublished hubs with nothing written yet... just a title, and their score is 68. On the other hand, I also have one unpublished hub with 54. I believe the minimum is 50, just like what nochance had said. I also believe that the hub score for unpublished hubs with no contents is based solely on what HubPages figure is the chance of making money, based on the presence or absence of high-paying keywords in the title.
In his hub, "How Hubscore Works", darkside says: "The HubScore is a reflection of the success that your hub has accomplished, it is not a step towards success. HubScores fluctuate, so don't hitch your emotions to the numbers on your hub. If you enjoy hubbing then go and research and write content for another one!"
I wonder whether HubPages does a normalization of ratings, with the 75% mark as the mid-point. However, I am not too obsessed with the hub score. I just do my best and that's it... what else can I do, other than deleting the hub?
Well it would appear that "potential to monetize" is the leading factor. I have gone back and added money making capsules to some and the score did go up,,,, nothing to do with content. And I have done same with keywords. Live and learn I suppose.
Ericdierker, what did you do to the keywords. Can you give us an example?
How embarrassing! I normally just write my story and publish it. I am rather rude that way. So I go back and take out some of my not so normal language and replace it with things people would look for. Then I repeat them a bunch in the summary and ..

Am I doing something wrong? My hub score is only 14, beyond average for those who just signed up.It is my 2nd day here, and I have written 1 article, coming to 2 though, but my Hub score is only 14, which I find it quite intimidating. Is this normal?

I recently got my lowest score ever for a book review on Kate Chopin's novel, The Awakening.Anyone want to give me some feedback? Usually my scores start around 50 and go up as I construct the hub.The entire review is my original writing. I didn't copy any text.

Its funny to me that a new 1400+ word hub is still low in ranking than an unpublished hub...

It is advantageous to delete one's own low scoring hubs that have little traffic. I figure getting rid of the low score would increase the average of the rest of one's hubs.What do you think?
