I see you unfollowed a ton of people as I suggested before, so depending on how recently you did that, it might take a while for the score to rise. I don't think that alone will put you into the 80s though. It's truly weird, dude.
Hubber scores are a mystery to me, but they don't seem to be all about your hubs. I think the average hub score is relevant. Using the hub hopper, ( I still prefer the classic version,) does appear to raise your score. Make sure you rate what you read. I skip a lot that are of no personal interest. Answer a couple of questions every day or so, it doesn't take long. And use the forums a bit, as you do already. Seems to me we're "rewarded" for using HP, spending some time here, by the score rising. Sometimes I look at my score and think, oops, better go and do something else!
Haha thanks for the tips. I did a bit of Hub Hopping earlier and you quickly start to see what good pages look like and what bad pages look like. If nothing else, that experience will help you write better hubs in the future.
Hi Jandee, I wouldn't take it personally. NotPC is just trying to raise his hubber score. Whenever someone goes on a "following spree" and follows tons of writers in a short period of time, it seems to lower their hubber score. NotPC was advised to unfollow a bunch of hubbers in an attempt to raise his score. I don't think he was trying to pull any tricks.
Hi Not PC, Sometimes I think my score is abnormally low too. It seems to help if you hub hop, and go on the forums a little more. Of course, they can get controversial, so pick one that won't get you in trouble. Otherwise I can't explain it either. I've also had a big jump from asking a question of other hubbers, but again, if it's political or religious, it can be more aggravation than it's worth. You aren't responsible for where the thread goes though, so start a few and don't post after the initial question. All those things should get you out of the dreaded "under 75" range. Did you start taking off your RSS feeds? My scores took a big dive even though I just took off a few a week. Check those out. Best wishes.
I can understand why you want to get above 75, but it's otherwise not that important if you ask me. You could try taking part in the "Answers" section of HubPages. It made my score rise a bit when I answered a few questions. Commenting on hubs and helping out with the Hub Hopper thing could also help. That's what I would do if I was under 75.
It could be that the score has a lot to do with participation in the HubPages community, and replying to comments counts as participation. Not that I reply to comments, but if you ask me, the score isn't worth worrying about as long as it's above 75.
Sounds like it could be a "following spree" that caused it. Even if Not PC followed it up with an "unfollow spree", it could be necessary to let the dust settle before the score rises again. In the meantime, I'd participate a bit more in the community if I was him or her.
NotPC, I looked at your some of your hubs and your page. May I suggest that you redo your brand (profile and avatar) but stay true to yourself and the identity you've built? After 3 years, maybe you need a fresh start. I think it might be tripping off some type of algorithm alerts but I don't know what (???). Also, some of your hub topics have heavy content, chockfull of text and long sentences. Try breaking up your text/paragraphs by using more capsules and breaking up sentences that are longer than two or three lines into two sentences. Use some right-aligned capsules to highlight/illustrate your main points. That will help to break up the text as well.
Why does my score drop one point just because I logged in??????? It happens every time. So maybe I'll just quit logging in and my score will stay at 83. Since google only recognizes hubbers with scores of 83 or higher!
