I have been wondering what the average length of hubs (decent scoring say 80+) is. I have a thing about not writing less than about 800 words, but many are 1200 - 1500.
Of course this makes less hubs for me, but I hope content wise they are better than superficial glossing over.
Am I being penalized for having less, but longer hubs?
I also, tend to start a hub when an idea hits, then go back in a day or two to finish. Otherwise I forget to write about it.
Why did you think you were being penalized? I checked your hubs, and you seem to be doing pretty good - and your own hubscore shows this, too
Nice hubs, by the way, I became your fan on the spot
HubPages will penalize for "low quality" (those Hubs that are just a paragraph), and they require that Featured Hubs be quite long. So if you think that longer hubs are somehow penalized, I have to disagree.
I don't think I am being penalized per se, but I notice a lot of hubbers with hundreds of hubs and I think that helps with their overall scores as one low ranked hub score doesn't have as much effect.
I am more curious than anything. I also have some hubs ideas which are very specific and probably won't get a lot of traffic, so I am just trying to figure out what I should do with those.
Well, providing your hubs do not break any rules and therefore do not have any penalties applied, their hubscore depends mostly on traffic and on traffic dynamics. All the rest is almost irrelevant...
I think a better hub is produced by writing about what you really know and have personal interest in, versus a Hub that you think might get good traffic.
Also, tresero, you've only been here for six weeks. Are you comparing yourself to people who've been building Hubs for over a year? Keep building Hubs on things you love and see where you are a year from now. You'll probably be pleasantly surprised.
I haven't been here very long, but I have noticed that the lenght isn't always a determining factor. I have an unpublished hub that is already ranking a 79 and I only have about 800 words. I test my hubs first and let it sit, then I adjust, rewrite and add stuff. That's because I am a slow writer, one a week if I am lucky. Hubpages works with their own algorhythms, just like google. For seasoned hubbers, they know more what works and what doesn't, we just have to learn as we go.

I have a hub about cell phones that generally has a hub score between 92 to 95. This evening it has been fluctuating between 2 and 5! Is there a bug in the system? Any ideas?

I can't believe how much my hubscore changes. It was up at an 80 yesterday and has dipped all the way down to 73. I have not been getting as much traffic lately. Do you think that is the problem or should I add more content?

What if you just go down the list of all hubbers and automatically fan everyone. I know in a lot of sites this is considered a negative thing to do and it will drop your reputation or whatever. What happens to fan whores on hubpages? Someone who knows please tell.

Can someone tell me what is the 'hub score' please? It seems to have no relevance to the number of page views on my hubs.Thanks!yellowbutterfly

I'm pleased to announce a new factor that goes into assigning Hubscores. Hubs which largely contain content that can be found elsewhere on the web are now penalized slightly. This should help make the Hubscores better reflect our desire for quality original content. Some authors who...
