I've published hubs recently that are starting out with a score of 44, or 45. I've never really had such low scoring hubs. One of them I can semi see it being low scored, as it's more of a rant than anything else - another is a pretty decent product hub for a good, low cost product that. . . .I'd think would be scored a lot higher.
Sure, the scores may go up - but I'm at a loss of understanding as to why hubs that I bust out in a day's time are. . . .scored so low. These aren't hubs that are very close to being anything like anyone else's. I'm just not the guy who writes something that resembles someone else's work in the least. I don't get it.
It happens from time to time. Especially, when you are publishing hubs continuously. If you publish a hub in one day, then the score will be low or go lower, simply because of traffic and content.
You could publish more than one hub in a day and most likely have both of them be low scores. I find it easier to keep them for a day or two, check them out for errors, re-affirm my keywords and make sure that the hub flows from beginning to end. By doing so, my average hub score to start is somewhere around 72 or higher.
I hope that helps.
Cags is right, WTS. I've sat on mine unintentionally before publishing from time to time and the score will rise significantly.
Although not as high as your stinking author score, snake man!
Show me some respect then! It's Mr. Snake Man to you!
Whoopsie! Mr. Snake Man, then explain to all of us newer hubbers why hub scores go up when you let them cook awhile before publishing...inquiring minds wanna know!
Once you taste the apple it will all come clear! Trust me!
What about you? Don't you have a "ball and chain" ceremony planned for some poor deluded male tomorrow?
I noticed that some of mine now start out below 50 which used to be the lowest level I think.
Freaked me out at first. But I don't think article score really matters to anything does it?
I couldn't sit on an article. I should, and edit and stuff, but I just want to get them out there.
I don't normally either, Mark, but I did on my last article and it went from 50 to 71 in a few days. Now it's my number one hub!

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...
