If anyone can explain this, I would be grateful. I just published my 9th hub and almost all of my hubs start off with 50.
My newest hub got a score of 52 just ten seconds after I published it. I was under the impression that everyone's hubs start out at 50, but I was obviously wrong.
I know most people complain about their hubscores dropping and I am not complaining about a higher starting score, but am curious about this. Was it the subject matter?
Likewise, I have a hub that was about helping newbies and that dropped to 49 which I also find weird.
If anyone can explain the higher starting hubscore, I would appreciate it.
Thanks. I am new here, so nice to meet you all.
I see that it's gone down to 51 now. Did you save it as unpublished or work on it for awhile? Even if you've saved a hub but haven't published it, it will slowly increase in score (even if it's blank with just a title).
Also, if you'd gone in and out of the hub, the fact you'd viewed it may have increased the score, since your views count too.
Really, it's completely random based on a lot of things.
Recently I published 'The Lumberjack' a poem. It did not take long to edit and post pictures. Within Half hour of starting I published, did not save it or anything. As soon as I published I noticed the score a 52. Was it a fluke? The score never went down.

I posted my first Hub this morning. It got a score of 71 and was marked as featured. I figured OK, I got a C on my paper. Better luck next time. Now, I see it's still featured but the score has dropped to 62. Will it now become unfeatured? Why did the score...

I wrote my first hub a week ago and i wasn't sure if it would do well. I checked back two days ago and saw the hubscore increased and my overall one did as well. However, today i noticed that my overall hubscore increased, but the hub i wrote went down a few points. Could someone help me understand...

Hi there...I just published the hub below and am confused why the starting score is so much lower than other hubs. In comparison I took an extensive amount of time making sure to include tons of unique content,photos, videos, links,referrals....so I am so confused why it started at 46 when...

Hi all,Yesterday, when I logged in, I was at 85. Now, I am at 83. I havn't published any hubs or answered any questions, obviously because I was logged out. I am a little confused on how the rating could have gone down. Do Hubs change in rating? I never really paid attention. I noticed one...

Just few days ago, I posted a hub which I think was well-organised. However, after posting that hub I saw my author score dropping around 2 points. Can anyone explain why did it happen?
