I am pretty excited to be able to start out with this score
I know score is not really all that big a deal but I can't help but wonder if this one might hit 100?
I would love a hub to reach a score of 100 even if its just for a day, would be a real feather in my cap from the point of view of my writing ability.
I am pretty surprised to be able to reach that score while it was unpublished!
I am going to have a nice bath now for a reward
That would be worth watching. (the bath that is)
But, I'm happy for you. I hope you can get your hub to 100. I've only gotten my hubs as high as 94, even starting out in the mid 70's.
Both my Valentine's Day Hubs were 78 and 75 respectively, when published.
I've had Hubs debut in the low 80s, but I don't think you can get it to go much higher than that as unpublished Hubs don't draw traffic or backlinks the same as a published one. And both of those factors really do contribute a HubScore of 100.
Let's hold thumbs that your hub reaches 100! I have had two hubs that reached 100 and neither of them started out with a high score. You have a distinct advantage starting out so high I would think
Wow, that's impressive! I can imagine your excitement...happy for you
How does the scoring work? (Is there a place somewhere that already answers this question?) I'm a total newbie and just trying to get it all figured out. I know that my first hub started out with a score of 70, but I don't remember the starting score of any of the other's. Yeah -- whether it "matters" or not, the fact that it IS scored challenges a person to get as high a score a possible, doesn't it? (At least those of us who have a competitive nature, I guess.)
yes Lynda... here: http://hubpages.com/faq/
And great going Kristen! I had the same with one of my hubs...it got to 78 just lying there for a week (probably because I got the url early) but it never made higher than 92! I'm sure you'll make it to 100 though! Best of luck!
The highest I ever reached was 84, but that was after a while, not within a week of publishing. Also, I think it went down now...
Lynda, I read some great hubs on hubscore. I think darkside did one, can't find it right now. But just type hubscore in the little searchbox and make sure it is set to searching in hubs. You will find some good explanations there.
Bravo kirstenblog! I have been and read, but going to read it again. I totally messed up the amazon affilliate thing, I want to do it right next time, so I am reading your latest hub to educate myself before I try again.
Don't forget how fortunate you are the Rigelian language is identical to English

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I am wondering why that happens and if it is any indication of how good the hub...

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.

I've got a few hubs in the works that are unpublished, but somehow they are getting page views. I'm sure they aren't published (some of them are just titles to develop for later) and they show up in red on the "my accounts" page. I'm perplexed. Anyone else had this...

Hi, I am just wondering, I started a hub just so that I wouldn't forget the topic I was writing on, but i didnt have enough time to finish it, so I left it unpublished. Now, a day later the score of the hub has gone down! Why is this? Will it effect my author score? Should I just publish then...

Hi all - its been a while since I've been on the forums. I'd love to see a new feature that would allow us to schedule a hub to be published. When editing a hub, the score tends to drop a bit, and I would love to be able to press publish, but allow it to continue...
