Can someone tell me if posting specs can affect my hub score drastically? Computer specs are more or less set in stone, unlike prose, which can be expanded on and reworded in countless ways. Or is it just me? -_-
Wording this in a different way:
I want to post specs but would prefer to edit it lightly; can I do this without my score being affected or my hub being flagged?
I'd have to see sample specs to really comment, but if you're just talking about like RAM and hardrive type and video card info and stuff, that's a pretty small amount of text.
If the writing around it, the description of the system, why it's better, the conversation about the upsides of competitors or advantage (or un-necessary nature of) so much memory or whatever is all original, I doubt the list of specs will hurt you too much. You can also probably put in & in place of "and" and write out a number here or there if you want.
Just a thought. I'm sure others who are writing that stuff will weigh in.
Thanks for the quick reply, Shadesbreath.
I had already changed all the things I can change - including the & in place of "and" or vice versa.
The reason why I had to ask is because I noticed my unpublished hubscore went down to 46 (I never had this score before); it's been 3 days now since I had uploaded it and I am nervous about publishing it. -_-
I am talking about RAM, etc, just like you said; but it's about 80 lines of that stuff. I am posting the full specs which I had found at the manufacturer's online ordering page; and adding brackets, @ and what nots, transposed some sections and added in some words of my own.
All this probably cause I do not feel safe.
If you are wanting to avoid creating duplicate content - what I do is make an image of them a post a jpg instead.
That is an awesome idea. You should do this stuff for a living!
I had thought of that but would prefer for it not to be an image, as I want the word to be searchable and hence listed in a search engine. -_-
@If I can get away without heavily editing this, I probably would
Hub is out if anyone's interested - heavily edited though - I got nervous! Maybe, I'll try the jpg way as brought up by Mark.
A topic that is already heavily represented already on the Internet is another reason that a HubScore can be very low. You may not have duplicate content per se, but you may also not be saying anything new on the subject.
It's a new laptop that has just been released one and a half months ago. And there is zero article on this particular model at Hubpages, though there are some on other models in the same line.
Just because there aren't other Hubs on this topic does not mean there aren't hundreds of pages on this model of laptop already on the internet in general.
I dunno but thanks for weighing in with a different perspective on this.
Anyway, my hubscore has improved to 53. Think maybe I got points shaved off the hub cause I uploaded the specs lightly edited from the manufacturer's site, and took another 2 days to start to "personalize" it to my hub.
Competition can be fierce success will depend upon your promotional efforts hope that helps.

I've been approached by a number of specialized sites regarding a number of my articles on Guitar product reviews. Obviously I was quite proud and humbled to be even considered to write content for these sites, some of which are huge, but all I'm getting in return is a back-link to my hubpages...

I noticed that a lot of people over the last six months or so have frequently discussed removing their under performing content and reposting it elsewhere once the content is deindexed, or just removing it all together.This makes total sense to me and thought I would give it a try.I found some...

I was approached by a company who saw some of my hubs and was interested in cross-posting them to their own blog for their readers. They would include credits, links etc, but I was a little unsure of whether to do that or not. On the one hand, it would be additional exposure for my hubs and my...
