    Hi I started off with a profile score of about 26 and it's been slowly decreasing everytime I do something and has now settled at zero lol

    Is this something I should be worried about?  am I doing something wrong? hmm

    Thanks in advance smile

      Hi Claire,
      First of all, welcome to HubPages! I am sure you will be very successful here. In relation to your Hubber/Profile score, when you join HubPages it usually starts very small and decreases when you publish hubs. However, if you participate actively in the forums, ask questions and comment on others hubs, your score will go up. I hope these tips will work and that you found them helpful. smile

      That is indeed odd. I checked your activity and you have not perpetrated any no-n's. Plus, you already have two perfectly good hubs. Hopefully susi10 is right and your score will begin to rise shortly. Hang in there. smile

          Welcome to HP... Don't let the scores get you down.  Read through the Learning Center and keep researching and writing quality content and everything will right itself soon.  Scores are only important for getting dofollow links but since this site when on the attack against affiliate marketing, the scores are only relevant for egos.

      The first hub you published pretty much answers your own question in the intro paragraph... Did you use this article to do your research: http://www.searchenginejournal.com/why- … ong/62670/

          That sounds like a great idea!  Expect your HubPages profile to take about a month or longer to kinda "normalize."

          The hubber score seriously doesn't matter at all though.. Mine ranges from 10 to 70 within the same month.  Google will still return your site in search results even if your hubber score is zero.

          Also, the hub I commented on in my previous post has a ratings capsule which isn't used correctly.  I know from experience that both Google and HubPages will take down your page for that.  Just a friendly heads up smile

          Good luck!

      I think six years ago I actually started at "0." For the first several months, my score would rise somewhat and then lower just a bit with each new Hub until that Hub had achieved a sort of leveled-out scoring among the rest of them. Then I noticed my Hubs within topic groups I'd made were rotating in scores and there were other similar score changes. All the scores seem to constantly change for me now, so hopefully other writers also become accustomed to seeing that. 

      Notice what happens to your Hubber Score this next several weeks and whether it rises. Mine took at least a year or more to become 100 the first time and it goes up and down, but new Hubbers today can sometimes see that 100 happen more quickly; and, in the end,  enjoying, polishing, and sharing your writing are much more important than that score.

      Welcome to HubPages!
