    During the earning freeze between aug 8th - 11th, my hub profile score dropped instantly from 80 something to 57. Some people mentioned google was punishing hubpages for something?

      Scores have nothing to do with Google.

      It's likely your score dropped due to low quality content.

      Hi bubiinnovation,

      We changed the way Hubber Score is calculated so that it more closely reflects the quality of all a Hubber's Featured Hubs. You can read about it in the Blog post here: http://blog.hubpages.com/2013/08/summer … bpages-hq/

        I just read about the changes Hubpages is making from this link and I couldn't be happier. I was beginning to become a little disheartened to see that so many low-quality Hubs seemed to be doing so much better than high-quality Hubs. It just didn't make sense because some of these articles are really bad, and that seems to reflect on Hubpages - and how people see it's writers - as a whole. Maybe our reputation will improve out in Internetland and peeps will view our collective articles as having content worth reading. I also think the '85; score for follow-links to be fair. It allows for the article to not necessarily be perfect for learning amateur writers and inspires writers to go above and beyond what they normally would, maybe. THANKS, I look forward to these improvements and more to come. smile

          Thanks for your kind words and support, Misfit Chick! We certainly hope that will be the outcome. We want to do our best to reward and support good Hubbers who write high-quality Hubs rather than just putting all our efforts into fighting spam and low-quality Hubs. smile

    Scores have a lot to do with traffic, which has a lot to do with Google
