So I wrote a sales Hub about a college football team and included the "fight song" in the Hub, Does this explain why it has a low score of 46 while getting 30 visits so far today? (because the fight song can be considered copied?)
The response of readers to your hub and no uniqueness in the hub can be the reason of low hub score
Has it been marked as duplicate content?
For the amount of the hub that it is, I don't think that would be a big issue, although it may be.
Also, chances are that the views are your own views as you edit the hub OR people seeing it on the hub hopper or even follower views.
Do you have any external views? (google, yahoo etc.)
Remember - score doesn't influence anything outside hubpages.
The hub was published only six hours ago, and the current score is 48. It doesn't mean a thing. It will probably correct itself.
Oops, didn't even check that.
Spot on. Wait a few days and the score will even out.
Thanks guys- as for it only being 6 hours old? That isn't correct because I was sleeping then (1 am)- I submitted this Hub yesterday morning...but that doesn't matter. No I did not have a duplicate content warning, thank goodness, but I will give it time...thanks guys!
"Submitted" for approval or published? Your profile says six hours...
Thank you! Then I've learned something new about HubPages' time stamps.
I just checked my profile and it says 14 hours ago.....hmmmm?
It is getting weirder still. Look at this, now the information has been updated:
Various stats update at different times, and there are occasional glitches in the updating process. I have had one number show on some of my stats in the forums, while a different figure showed on my profile - for half a day or more.
The hubscore can take many days to come up to where you think it should be. Most of them start out at 50, so if yours have never started below 60, you have had unusual numbers before now. Just wait a couple of days before really freaking out.
I had my hub scores fluctuating when I first published them, then it evens out over time. Am not too sure of the correlation between the hubscore and the number of visits
It has now dropped to 44! Well... I havent seen this before!

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

So I just had an email saying one of my hubs was substandard due to duplicate content but to be honest it is content that I wrote totally off my own back and only have a couple of facts in there that are relevant. So the question is what would you advise? Should I just delete the hub and be done...

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

I was just checking my stats when I noticed that a hub I published on 1-7-07 has been flagged and incurring a HP penalty for duplicate content. It's my highest earning hub and HP giving me a penalty-and then asking me to wait 72 hours for a review on something I published a year ago is...
