I posted a hub yesterday that already has a hubscore of 44...! My other hubs have gradually been climbing up into the 60s and 70s (I've only been posting a couple weeks).
I made a few changes to the low-scoring hub already, but I'm wondering what else I can do to raise the score. I won't post the hub link, as I'm a bit unsure whether posting a link to my hub is a violation, but it's called "Where to Read Edgar Allan Poe Poems Online," so you should be able to find it.
It's more SEO-oriented than other hubs I've done, and not as creative, but I don't think it's poor quality. Any advice?
Repeat: Way premature to change anything.
Maybe it just threw me because all my other hubs started accumulating points straight away. I was kind of taken aback when I saw that within an hour it had already dropped a point and gained none. (Yeah, I'm still at that stage where I check obsessively. Just experimenting with a few different ad revenue/revenue share sites at the mo.)
It is premature to say whether any changes are needed. More likely than not, it will pick up soon and reach a level comparable to the others. As long as you are 40+ (do-follow), you are OK, anyway.
If you want it critiqued, post to the Extreme Hub Makeover forum, where links are permitted.
I would suggest trying to work out what is holding that specific hub back. Too many links to the same site, too short...?
Thanks, all. I have been trying to figure out what's brought about the low score, and have made a couple changes. I shortened the list of Amazon links, for example, as I thought the length made it look spammy. I linked to several sites, and only one was linked more than once. I added links to other hubs to improve "interactivity." (Do I have the right idea there?) It wasn't a lengthy hub, but I've written shorter.
Not sure if I'm ready for the full "Extreme Makeover" yet. Oo-er.
Newly published hubs often drop below 50. I think yesterday there was a similar discussion, and the advice is to give it time.

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

For some reason unknown to me both my latest hubs have received the lowest scores I have ever known despite them having gone live yesterday and had many hours in between when I posted them and both hubs - Autumn Foraging and The day I nearly met Jesus - have both atrracted many comments...

I need a little advice. I have just created a new hub on false eyelashes,last night and it has dropped down to 40. Now everything I have written is original and nothing is flagging up. All my other hubs incresed steadily, but this is the first to drop. Have I done something wrong here. I have a you...

I've been here long enough to realize that hub scores can be low for good hubs and high for those so-so hubs. I also know that hub scores are based on more than content so traffic and reader comments and other things alter the score. For the most part, I don't concern myself with the score as long...
