OK. I just tried an experiment. I published lousy hubs
I just wrote five or so "40ish" hubs and no score changed. I wrote ten in a row that were "featured" and no score changed.
Here is the problem -- not for me, keep your panties out of a knot -- If HP cannot run those simple metrics how can they possibly be correct on paying writers. Incompetence is sometimes systemic. HP is starting to be systematically disabled.
(now just take it easy, please do not jump on me for being critical. I am only pointing out a failure, I am not attacking the God of HP)
You are the stick that stirs the pudding. I appreciate that more than you will ever know.
Interesting. I don't have much to say about this now, but I am curious to see where this whole thing ends up. That experiment surely was a good idea.
There's a God of HP?? If HP means Hewlet-Packard, tell the God to start making decent machines. If it means Hubpages, you don't really expect anything to change overnight do you, Eric. Hierarchies are the same the world over - it takes time for common sense to percolate, lots and lots of time. You might see some changes come February - or maybe not.
Eric, your activity could be so superlative that HP cannot keep up! Your writing fervor motivates me!
My Hubber score confuses me. Ok, I leave HP for a year, it goes to 96, I come back, it fell to 86. I see that it is far more sensitive at 95 than it is at 86. IDK what it is all about.
I posted a Hub yesterday with a mistake in the title and lost a point an got an email suggesting I brush it up. IDK what the scores are but after 75 or so, it doesn’t matter much. Most of my hubs are stuck at 95 due to my personal score.
Until HP fixes things up, Panda and Google in general really do not want much to do with HP. Subdomains don’t fix multitudes of hubs that read poorly and the .hubpages.com could possibly receive a different ranking by Google’s design. IDK.
Dang it. I really did not want to be told how bad it is. I just like to complain. JR is it really that bad?
HP didn’t make attempts to rid itself of plagiarism when Penguin was announced, so it could be a vendetta. HP was late in the remedy. Writing long seems to help. Don’t stuff with keywords either. Google is very smart now. HP is widening up but a late
Not long ago HP chaged how scores are calculated, so I'd think that could explain some of the post-return changes.
Publishers and editors are a bee sting on our arse. but god bless 'em. I love to complain but do not want their job. I just write!
Sorry about my mess up, I meant, they are getting wiser on the rules here. I’m writing some on SEO after Penguin and Panda. Write long and use a lot of variations of your keyword. Now G can tell that acne, zits and pimples are the same subject now.

Do you think it's better to post an OK hub every day, or a really good one once a week?

I haven't been in HP for a spell because work has kept me so busy for the past few weeks. Upon my return to publish a new hub, I finished my work and included my usual (and short) copyright notice in a text capsule....
