Should I worry when my Hub Score dips below 70?

    Three of my hubs are in the 60's. The lowest one I just posted for fun, kind of a creative writing exercise. Should I do anything to fix it? I'd appreciate any type of feedback:

      When starting out, generally it's about writing a good few article/Hubpages and then measuring what you learn from your stats against what works traffic wise.

      Even hubpages below the score of 70 can have a good stream of traffic, so I wouldn't worry about your scores for this and that.

    I would hope you shouldn't worry, because I have a few in that range too wink

    For individual Hubs, you shouldn't worry about scores like that.  More personal or experimental stuff just doesn't get that much traffic or interest.  I've got a few with scores like that myself.  Your overall AuthorScore is in the 90s, which is a great score.

    I read somewhere here that a hubscore below 75 has a 'no follow' link for the page (meaning the search engines will not index the page), so no one will find your hub by doing a [Google] search for instance.  You'd need your own backlinks to the hub.

    As far as worrying goes...no, there's absolutely no point in worrying about anything which you have no control over...so stop already!

      Not true.  First, the " no follow" tag means search engines don't follow any outbound links found on that Hub.  It can still be indexed.  Second, the threshold at which the "no follow" tag is triggered is a score of 40 or lower for individual Hubs.  It will apply to all Hubs in an account if the AuthorScore falls below 75.

        Ahh..thanks relache.  I guess I misunderstood about the 'no follow', but not about the worrying...

    I have a few there myself.  The average always stays above 70, but some just don't do well.  Some I understand and knew they wouldn't get high scores when I wrote them.  Some I expected to do better and am surprised that they did not, but those are balanced off by hubs that surprise me in the other direction.

    Thanks everyone! I should have known better than to worry about the number - I really am much more of a word-girl! I guess I had a momentary dip in my self-esteem. That happens sometimes. I appreciate the help and encouragement! smile
