Thank you, paradigmsearch, for your answer. Ya think they could be more direct. I thought I was gonna have to start some ruckus in the political forum or posting oodles of random and rather dim questions just to get my name swirling again. Who was to know?
Unfortunately, at present, I have a very limited amount of real computer time each day. I can post questions and what not via my smartphone, but no word processing (ie, editing or submitting articles). So, looks like I'm gonna have to wait until I can get my hands on my own computer before I see that score go back to where it belongs (in my arum....maybe not so humble opinion!) !
Along with the latest HP update that calculates the Hubber Score differently, HP also implemented a feature that gives you style tips for improvement. You see that in the top right corner of the hub tool (when editing a hub).
Try checking those tips in your unfeatured hubs and make the recommended changes to try to get more hubs featured. That should help increase your Hubber Score. Presently less than 20% of your hubs are featured.
I like the new style tips and find them very useful. I've been updating several hubs today based on those tips. I improved some worst performing hubs. But it's also useful to check for any tips in the best performing hubs. I feel that improvements at the top can have a more extreme positive effect.
Congrats Glenn on keeping a good score. Appreciate your tips. I had some tips on a hub, and I fixed it. Do you think hubber scores should be hidden? I value your opinion, and believe problems keep arising about the scores.
Now down 4 more points to 79 in less than 18 hours??! Screw this. I know my grammar *very* well, and I choose my words, voice and style as obsessively as a master chef. Not calling myself Shakespeare, you understand, but I know how to write a damned good piece whether hp agrees or not. So, to hell with it. I'll fill my muse here with creative writing (which yields little in terms of monetary return anyway), but I'm gonna make my money and devote my best essay/article writing to Helium.com. Not gonna fret over something so temperamental and whimsical!
I could not agree with you more. HP "poking us with a stick" to change our hubs to their design is not the "write what you feel strongly about" that was their clarion song that drew so many of us in. I have too many friends here to move, but HP has gone from being encouraging to simply being irritating.
My Hubber Score went from 97 to 90. Paul Edmondson's went down to 93. Just another case of management using time and resources on things that are not important and intimidating the authors on this site instead of focusing on driving traffic to Hubs.
Thank you. I applaud you for your total honesty! Some one out there, undoubtedly, stays awake all night, every night, creating absolute nightmares for Hubbers. One new thing per week to frustrate, upset, deflate, "control," irritate, annoy, correct, demean, insult, push, pull and confuse Hubbers, to their complete and utter LAST NERVE. The only way I can possibly continue to be here is to remember my deep love for writing......and bonds I have developed with several fellow-hubbers. At least I no longer cry tears. Fortunately, my true value and the authentic meaning in my life, is NOT defined via Hubpages. As for the money? It is made by only those select few who know each and every minute detail about writing online for money. These are highly skilled, learned individuals, who have master tech skills as well as their writing capabilities. It took me 7 months to earn $50, here. Last week, I sold 2 articles to a local magazine and was paid $350.00...........So, there you go!
I have over 80 hubs, all are featured. I comment on other ppls hubs often and here on the forum. I drink lots of water though I should probably get more exercise. I pray a lot though I haven't been reading my Bible as I should though I am reading a devotional by John Calvin. I have no idea why my score dropped dramatically in a matter of two days, but it is to the point that I have lost the desire to clean my house. I blame HP's for this.
For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to...
I am looking for 5 things that will increase my hubber score.Assume there are enough articles to manipulate and about 200 featured but a ton "less than". The hubber does not network and just wants to raise the...
I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...
produces: anxiety!C'mon, Hubpages! I've been a good boy. I've improved my hubs. I've been "awarded" a Level 2 Commentator (oh joy.) My personal story of near death and survival is consistently coming up TWICE...
