I have noticed that hubs I write about Mr. Obama, that are not positive, start with a lower score or ranking. I have also noticed that ones people write claiming Obama is great and has done a lot for the nation start out with a high score. Even though the ones I write that start off in the 40's end up in the 70's and 80's I find it weird. Maybe I should start an obamawatch.com site.......in contrast to his attackwatch.com haha
Welcome to Hubpages or liberal land where conservatives are harrassed for their views, but hey, it's their web site they don't have to be fair.
true.....I like my idea of creating an identical looking site to attackwatch.....called something like obama watch or obama report and just allow conservatives to write or refute what he says lol
Let us know if you start one. I'd find that a relief to engage in.
"Lady Love's " statement is absolutely false - content about Obama is all over the place here and everywhere.
ORIGINAL content is what scores high. If you write about politics - then you'd best be damned good at it, as everyone writes about politics. Hubpages software can tell from the title and the content how original or unique something is - and anything about Obama is going to be neither original or unique.
ladylove: be fair - it's not Hubpages who argue with you - they stay out and staty objective by allowing all political forum entries to stay - it's other members of Hubpages that argue...
I'm not talking about "arguing". This is a forum, it's very purpose is debate and that's why I come here. It helps me to strengthen my arguments and understand the opposition as well as improve my understanding of my own arguments.
liberals like on here bring a whole new meaning to "arguing with idiots"
At least most of the Liberals in these threads seem to be able to put together a coherent sentence. And I think the Liberals here are really nice to spend their time arguing with you, despite your handicaps, and despite your friends.
ok my communist friend from china...why dont you go back to praising your gov and eating cats and dogs lol
Oh what witty repartee!
Bet it took you hours to think that one up!
I will say it again.....you are from the UK and he is from China.......in my world and in the USA you both count for zero....worry about your own countries as they have plenty of problems
Nick, I doubt that the content of the hub has anything to do with the score. When you start a hub the starting score is dependent on the title you give it. HP has a way of scoring the title against others with similar titles. Unusual sounding titles get a higher score than regular sounding titles.
To prove this. Title your hub and save as unpublished before putting any content in and see the score. I often delete hubs and restart with another title to get a higher score. You can edit the title but somehow it doesn't have the same impact.
Cardisa, Thank you for the advice and feedback! That is what I was hoping to find with this thread. Thank you so much!!!
Remind me of the thread title, doesn't it go something like
"If you write a hub that is against Obama it start with a lower ranking"?
I have also noticed that ones people write claiming Obama is great and has done a lot for the nation start out with a high score.
Just because I live in China it does not mean I am Communist, or even Chinese - any more than you having suffered an American college education means that you are an idiot. However in my case being a UK citizen who happens to be living in China is to my advantage, while you seem determined to prove by your comments that you indeed have suffered an American college education.
He fails to take in consideration someone might work in another country, Reco! He's probably from Florida or Texas, I would wager. You know, Palin country!
I thought Palin was Alaska ? Or has she escaped to a warmer climate ? The other Alaskan is here working with me, he is a big guy who hauls logs for fun it appears - I don't think he would appreciate being called a commie either
Sarah Palin has special powers though. On a clear day she can almost see Russia from her bedroom window.
Russia is a funny name to give that guy next door that she had fling with !
She's a very resourceful woman. In the absence of a cue on her palm she decided to improvise. Russias a good a name as any.
I apologize for calling you a communist and for down playing your opinion and Johns because you live outside of the US
Feel free to call me a Communist - I'd be insulted if anyone ever called me a capitalist.
Apology accepted, but as John says it is a little unnecessary but is a nice gesture anyway
LOL I think you find it has nothing to do with the topic - what you'll notice is that if you don't publish your hub straight way it will begin to score higher.
Taking your logic one step further -
I wrote a hub about Guinness a year ago - that started with a score of about 70. Yesterday I wrote a hub about Knickerbocker Glories (English Desssert) - this started off about 45 - obviously Hubpages love the Irish more than the English!
If Hubpages was biased then the 6 million forum entries telling us how stupid Obama was would disappear....
Nah Simey, that doesn't beat a good conspiracy theory.
"if you don't publish your hub straight way it will begin to score higher." what does this mean?
I have about a dozen unpublished hubs. They all started with a hubscore of around 45-50 - now after about a month or so they are all 55+ - the longer they stay unpublished the higher they get - I've had some hubs I've published with a score of over seventy. It seems that they acquire hubscore unpublished too - as long as there is content in them!
Your anti-Obama rant hubs probably trip the Google bu!!@hit detector - plus the lack of a credible source, never mind the quality ?
I write very well, thank you and have sources! I can write better than the non english speaking google staff......during grad school I had to write 10k word papers every week and graduated with a 3.78
Well I guess it would require knowing which grad school and whether they gave marks for quantity over quality to know the truth of that, but I can believe you graduated from an American grad school from my quick look at your stuff.
besides Obama is the number one source for bulls***.......if you do not have blinders on you can see how badly he has and is screwing our country up...so all you need to do is quote the great one
As I read the normal news, he is in an impossible situation with a country in deep debt and an irrecoverable economy, and the right wing with enough power to stop him doing anything about it. I guess watching your country go down the toilet in favour of some transient political positioning is ok for the mis-educated parts of the US.
ok you live in China so your opinion really doesnt matter lol
I think my opinion is taken far more seriously by many more people than yours, old boy
But like you he is a contributor to Hub Pages.
Don't be paranoid. Every hub I've written, no matter what the topic, started out with a low rating, typically in the 50s. If it gets traffic and comments, it moves up gradually.
Nice paranoia there. The starting rank is automated and the same for everyone.
only natural.. if you run a Presidential candidate against Obama, you will end up with less votes too
your negative obama information could be ranking low because there is more negative obama info on the web than pro obama. i am not sure what goes into ranking hubs and how its calculated, but i am sure it is connected to search engine ranking and other information on the web besides our hubs.
LoL.. dont let those two get you riled up Lucas... Recommend1 only has 4 hubs, not a hub guru by a long shot. And although mr DBcooper has plenty of hubs, he is not alive anymore after dying in his risky plane jump... unless he would like to prove his identity to the FBI?? lol After all, they are correct. Who would pay attention to negative hubs about President Obama? 9.1% employment, no jobs created, trillions in debt.. I can't understand why you would criticize him myself.
This is actually pretty funny. I'm not a fan of obama but If i owned a website, I would probably add value to the negative articles. Can't have it both ways.
Props to hubpages algorithm creators.
Why are conservatives always being persecuted? We're just trying to make this country better by shoveling more and more money to billionaires and taking more from the poor and middle class. It's not our fault anyhow, we're just doing what we're being programmed to do.
Why does HubPages hate us so much? Why can't we get a pass on our crappy hubs? Why can't we get extra credit for blindly following our tele-leaders?
It's not fair I tells ya'. It's crap like this that makes us drop out of high school. I'm gonna go snuggle up with my guns and hope tomorrow's a better day.
Maybe it (the Hubscore) is a simple case of not having a search engine friendly title? Of course that is idle speculation as - how hubscores are set is a mystery to me, but not a conspiracy theory.
But then I am probably not allowed an opinion according to the OP because I am one of the HubPage writers that live in the UK.
Hi Nick thanks, its OK, I am not in this forum very often anyway as UK politics is difficult enough to follow without trying to comprehend what is happening in the USA.

I submitted the hub for...
