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?
Thanks in advance
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.
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.
I am hoping it's because I'm a hub virgin Thanks I shall keep hanging on and see what happens x
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
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!
Yeah you're right. I am such an impatient mare lol
Thank you x

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?

My profile score is usually pretty steady. I get on hubpages during the weekend. It drops 4 or 5 points when I get on here during the weekday. I don't do it very often (maybe once a month). Why...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...
