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
"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.
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.
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.
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 Title your hub and save as unpublished before putting any content in and see the score.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.
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.
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
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....
Are you saying Hubpages doesn't hire a person to move the meaningless number up and down to make Obama look more favorable to the zero people (other than Nick Lucas and Lady Love) who are paying attention to such a thing?
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
