or are the scores by our pics reflective of nothing? They seem to change whether or not we are succeeding according to the HP directives. It seems a bit demeaning being scored by an unseen entity anyway.
I agree that it seems rather strange and pointless - I had a score of 85 when I hadn't visited hubpages for about five days when I thought the score would have dropped far more. But then when I started interacting more after I'd been away, it dropped to 82...very frustrating and wierd. The hub people want to keep us on our toes.
It seems from the post link below that even HubPages see that this causes problems for some. Really the best thing to do is to ignore it (unless it tumbles really low which is unlikely).
There are theories on what makes the score fluctuate, but I have never read an exact break down of how it works. I think there is a bit in the Learning Center about it. As it appears to be that is not a reflection of your worth as a writer or earner I would not be concerned about it.
This is a post that includes a reference to Hubber Scores and has comments from HubPages staff.
Min went to 93 and now is down to 86. I didn’t do anything but respond a few times in these forums. I don’t get it. I read some on it but everyone says it is in relation to interactivity on hub pages. IDK.
I love the scores. I must be crazy. They give balance to my day. The up and downs don't bother me. I think a lot of it is participation on site, and I love to participate and interact with so many nice people.
Beth I watch the scores but pay little attention to them , Forums activety seems to drop it , answering questions insightfully seems to raise it , Some stupid equation no doult ! Dont let it bring you down , yyour already a pretty nice hubber !.....:-}
I like the scores. When my pageviews tank I can always go back to watching my hubberscore. I remember how confused I was when I got HOTD, my views soared and my score dropped 4 points. But, the score lags a bit behind and is influenced by many things. It's purposely obscure so you can't "game the system." I've noticed that too much activity is a sure way to slam your score. If you ask 5 questions, answer 10 and follow 4 people, my bet is that it will go down. If you follow dozens of people it will sink like a stone. I would not allow that to prevent me from doing those things if that's what I want to do. The 87 you have today is a pretty good score for only being here for 3 weeks.
I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my...
For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...
I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially...
