Is it of value to write short poems on Hubpages and does it affect your rating negatively?


I often see Hubpages that have just 3 lines of poetry, with or without an image to complement it. Does this positively or negatively affect your overall rating on Hubpages? I understood a 300 word minimum with keywords and SEO to bring many visitors would increase your ratings, especially with the new "idle" status on HP.

    Hello Denise. Yes. I am aware of building the HP up with everything you listed, including posting a number of poems, photos, etc. I'm simply curious that so many people post a simple little poem. Period. Yet, their ratings still remain high. Thanks!

    Your ratings don't seem to be worse for wear. Maybe other factors play a more important part, like the number of admirers for your poetry bringing in many thumbs up and comments?

    Profile scores seem to fluctuate based on many factors, some of which will always remain a mystery. I also find that the score drops after publication, then later goes back up. Thank you, Jan.
