Well, the title is pretty self-explanatory. Will it? Just out of curiosity.
The flag tool is to alert staff to a hub which may not follow HP's TOS. Staff will review the hub and decide if anything needs to be changed. If so they will unpublish the hub and notify you via email, I believe.
Either way I do not think that a hub receiving a flag would impact its score at all.
A flagging has no action other than to alert admin.
If a Hub is genuinely in violation of the TOS, and is unpublished by admin, you will see it go down in score. However, once the errant content is amended and the Hub is reviewed by admin, upon republication it will go back up again.
Well, today I just found out one of my best hubs (in my opinion) was flagged. And my hubscore went down by 5 points. I can't see why someone would flag it.
This is what it said:
Deceptive Tags, Title, or Category
and someone unpublished it.
That wasn't necessarily the result of a flag.
And there was a violation, which means Hubpages admin unpublished it.
relache's post is 100% accurate here.
*sighs* I thought we had established they run on magic, their workings is not for man to know.
Wait, can you guys look at the hub to see if anything is wrong with it?
We can't if it's unpublished.
If your title doesn't match the contents of the hub, there's your problem.
It does. And I fixed the tags and everything. It's fine. It said that is was submitted for publication.
Then you wait until Hubpages admin has a look and decides if it can be republished.

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

I thought I knew the answer to this question. But something interesting happened in the last week which I found it hard to explain. I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just reached 250-300 hits per day.I was experimenting to see how many tags I could use...

My hubscore is usually from 96 at its lowest to 100 at its best but today it has dropped down to 89 and then to 88 while I have been on the site! This is worrying, especially considering that I posted a new hub last night and thought my score would go up not down!

I have noticed that hubs are being moderated before the are published, and are being voted down when they are incomplete.I have started writing my hubs straight into the capsules, but I'm getting moderated before they are completed. I am saving as I go so I don't lose anything, but they remain...

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 understand that a hubscore is dependant on a large number of factors including traffic and originalityI'm currently in the process of developing a hub and it currently has a 77 hubscore without even being published. Could this mean that the hub has a high potential of being successful in your...
