My Hub has a Score of ZERO!?

  1. Miss Lil' Atlanta profile image86
    Miss Lil' Atlantaposted 7 years ago

    Okay, so I just published a new hub, and right when I publish it, the hub goes from a 50 to a 0?

    I've never had this happen before, and it's not like it's a crappy blog or something. I did "all" of my research before hand, and for my standards it's a good blog.

    I understnad that my niche is dogs and dog breeds, but my other new horse hub doesn't have a freakin' zero! Would that maybe have to do with anything?

      Now, one of my blogs is a 97.. and I "know" it's not 97 rating material.

      I wouldn't worry about it for a few days after first publishing it - sometimes the number can go up and down a lot during that time.

        Jason, in my 19 months here I have NEVER heard of a hub dropping from 50 to ZERO?

        You're kidding right?

        1. Miss Lil' Atlanta profile image86
          Miss Lil' Atlantaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          I swear, I'm not kidding. My hub within "litterally" two seconds went from a 50 to 0 score.

            My post wasn't aimed at you, it was meant for Jason and his remark.

            My new article score number did the exact same thing.

      I just hub hopped. It looks like all new hubs now start at zero.

      I just published a hub and it is at 0 right now.  Someone I follow just published a hub with a 0 score, too.  Also, one of my hubs that is not so great has a score of 98.  Obviously, there are some errors in the system right now.  Hopefully they will fix it soon.  I've never had a 0 before for anything on here.

        Jeannieinabottleposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Now every hub has a score of 50!  I am going to log off.  I am sure it will be fixed when I come back.

    I just read your hub..it's great.  smile

    Like has already been said, it seems hubs now start on 0.

    1. Cagsil profile image81
      Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      But, that makes it more difficult for ALL to get Hubscores up to the minimum 40 which is required for dofollow links?

      How was this change NOT announced to the community beforehand? roll

        Good point!

      2. Miss Lil' Atlanta profile image86
        Miss Lil' Atlantaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Yeah, I agree. I really think that Hubpages would announce something like this. For as long as I've been on Hubpages, they've always seemed to be really great about announcing any changes and etc...

      Another case of you thinking that your 'observations' are equal to facts? lol

  4. wordscribe43 profile image90
    wordscribe43posted 7 years ago

    I know, the same thing happened to me on my other account.  It was a 51 right before I published it, then immediately went to a zero.  Something's fishy.  Come on..!

    Whether it is a temporary glitch, or new algorithm, it is the same for everyone.

  6. theherbivorehippi profile image78
    theherbivorehippiposted 7 years ago

    I voted up this hub and marked it "useful" so why does it not show that it's been marked useful?  Is that on a delay and I've never noticed before?  I thought it was recorded and posted immediately.

      There have been delays with those pesky buttons before. Eventually they catch up. smile

    It's a glitch. smile

    Per hub hop, looks like the zeros are now gone. smile

      Follow-up:

      I just hub hopped. There are still issues.

      "Osama Bin Laden Video Game  0 "

      And there's a couple others.

    BentleyMomposted 7 years ago

    The hub I published today also went down. When I published it was at 50 now it is at 0.
    On the other hand I had a couple of hubs shoot up to 98 during that samw time.
    They are still like that.

      It's a glitch and staff is attempting to correct the problem. smile

    Hubscores have been fixed.
