I wrote a new hub on daiwa reels and it started at 50 but then dropped down top 47. I will give it a few days but I am thinking there should be a hub score level that tells us we need to do something with our hub. Most of my hubs are 60 -80. I would like to score higher but that should happen when I get better at writing and researching. What level of Hub score do you typically delete or rewrite a hub?
I've never deleted a Hub. And only once have I done what you would call a re-write.
Never judge a Hub until it's about a week old. Then if it's not doing what you imagined, take a look at your Analytics and start adjusting from there.
If it's all original content, it's not going to drop under 40. It won't go much under 50. But I don't keep an eagle eye on it during the week after publishing.
There comes a point where it will require more than just good writing to get a higher HubScore, you'll need traffic.
My advice is to write to the best of your ability on things that interest you that have some level of interest to the outside world and ignore HubScore.
My lowest scoring hub is 48 and that's because it hasn't had ANY visitors in 30 days. I may at some point look at how I can improve that. But I'm not putting the cart before the horse, I want to improve my traffic, the HubScore is only a reflection of what really matters.
HubScore is an indicator, not what you should be striving to achieve.
It is above 50 today. Yse it is original content off the top of my head but how many ways can a person describe a fishing reel?
I take my own pictures of my own reels and stuff.
Thanks for the answers.
I've learned that the score just doesn't make a lot of difference. It will constantly change with the number of comments, clicks, etc.
Your profile score (which, I see, is 89) is MUCH more important and needs to stay above 75, I think.
Using an analytical tool is your best indicator of a hub's value. Also, don't forget about the handy "stats" option (top of hub, between "edit" and "delete." Click on "stats" then "hub metrics." You want to shoot for $$$$$ (5 being the top # )
I use a handy downloadable analytic tool called Traffic Travis. It gives your URL a letter grade (A+ down to D-) It's impossible for HP url's to get an A+ because we can't use meta-tags but you can get an A if you follow their suggestions. (They analyze then give suggestions for improvement; just ignore the first comment though about meta-tags, as I said.)
Your content is good. You'll improve your SEO by doing analytics and following through with suggested improvements. Your clicks will go up with time, so long as your hub is good. Don't forget about building back links, too. (search back links up in the search section for a gazillion forum posts and hubs on the topic!)
I got a couple that are $$$$, didn't know what the top was.

I've heard to disregard that but I'm still a little curious. Honestly I don't know how the score is even decided but those of you that have a lot of followers or have been able to make money, what is your average score...

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total...

My hub that seems most popular with over 52,000 reads is at the bottom of my hubs with a 69 and it has been 70's so I sharpened it up some just to have it fall. How can this be? I hate to delete it but I think that is...

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is...

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?
