I'm New and my score is low - WHY?

  1. ByChanceTV profile image61
    ByChanceTVposted 7 years ago

    I'm very new and I've only posted a couple of hubs.  Why is my score so much lower than others.  I've submitted original content I wrote on different topics??

        Kinda makes the newbies a little discourage, but thanks for your reply.  I plan on building my number up?  Any kind of tactics?

          If joining a site and not having instant success is a discouragement then you need to harden up a bit.

          So, you're saying you'd feel better if you started out at 100 and then just watched your score go down and down...?

        try more (constructive) forum posts, commenting on others hubs and publishing more quality content. Vote hubs and leave good comments for others. It climbs pretty quickly when you're active smile

    Rome wasn't built in a day or a few hubs.  Your Patience will be rewarded, but stick with it and just posting hubs... wink

    ByChanceTV, don't worry about it.  If you keep at it, your score will rise and get to a point where it won't matter anymore.

    If we started with high scores then what would be our motivation to participate in the site and continue publishing quality hubs?? smile Not that I haven't been known to gripe a little about my own....  wink

    You have to earn success here - I'm still new as well but am working on building up my scores. This isn't a get rich over night type of deal.

    I'n new too, and I've found it quite motivating to watch my scores on both profile and my first few hubs steadily increasing day by day. 

    Obviously the algorithm behind it is a total mystery, but hey, we're all here so let's enjoy the ride!

    I beleive a major factor to getting a high hubscore is publishing hubs that people might be interested in reading in their spare time. Or the most important, hubs that will help them. Hubs and articles that seem to constantly do well are the "How To..." hubs. Think of topics that people with take the time to want to read and it will benefit them by reading it.
