I just made a hub that I thought was really great but my score is 48, why?
I'm not going to link to it cause I don't know if that's allowed, but if you go to my profile it's the one called "The Complete Guide to Making Money Online."
Is it just the topic that I wrote about? Because I know that this topic gets a ton of spam, but my hub is actually good.
It's a simple, mechanical penalization by the ranking algorithm,
I will agree with Relache. Your hub will be tagged for over-promotional, sooner or later by Staff and that will work against you.
However, on a side note, if a hub isn't matured during the creation, then you will start out with an average score, such as 48-51.
If you leave a hub to mature, then the score will go up, as you edit and change things, while visiting it yourself.
Hope that helped.
A lot of Hubs will start out with a low score. Reasons for ultra low score may be that the subject has been done by many others? isn't new, who knows really but scores usually rise in time. I wouldn't fret.
Ken, it's obvious that Dame Scribe and psycheskinner didn't actually look at your Hub. I really suggest you read the section I linked to and then review your Hub content.
Every initial hub starts with a score near to 50 but as soon as people start visiting it, the score starts improving. Also I feel that if people rate your hubs, it also increases your score. I got a lot of ratings for hubs and my hubscore started increasing.

Pretty much without exception my Hub score will drop two, three or more points within an hour or two of first posting a Hub. Then it gradually, eventually goes up again. For example, today, March 31, 2011, I posted a Hub and my score dropped like a rock three points. I don't understand this. I...

Why does it bug me so much when I see my hubscores going down? It is not supposed to matter, especially when it is just a point or 2 but it really gets to me.

Every time I publish a hub, my hubber score goes down a point or sometimes two, and I would have thought the HP would want me to publish more hubs. But, I guess that is not the case. Maybe that is why so many hubbers are jumping ship.

The hub I published this morning says not featured but has a good score and ads? I'm on my phone so I can't edit it. This is not a low quality hub though.
