My hubber score just went down after I published another Featured hub

    I was delighted to see my hubber score climb to 90 yesterday. Today after I published another hub that also got featured (and in just an hour this time), I noticed that my score fell by 3 points. How come? I know hub scores can fluctuate but hubber scores? I even had a comment on my new hub today.

    Thanks!

      I see that your profile score has now dropped to 84. Which means that HP has declared all your links in all your hubs as no-follow.

      That is an extremely not-good thing. Either HP has become highly perturbed about something, or there is some sort of glitch.

      I looked at your latest hub and saw nothing wrong.

      If you have not already done so, the only thing I can think to suggest is to be sure to set all your photo attribution links in all your hubs to no-follow.

      Update: see next post.

    New hubs naturally have lower scores and so will bring down your average.

      I also believe this is about the averaging but eventually your hub score will rise up to the highest. Just be patient.

    Ignore scores, watch money.

    I generally ignore the scores.  Hubber score and hub scores.  Unless they get low, you don't really have to worry.  It will go back up in no time.

    Update...

    I decided to follow my own advice, and started checking some of my hubs.

    At which point I realized there is no way to manually make photo attribution links no-follow.

    So, HP advises to include photo attribution links...

    But general consensus seems to be that Google perceives those as non-relevant links. And Google doesn't like those...

    So, what the hell does one do? Keep the link, perturb Google. Delete the link, perturb HP.

    I decided to do what I've seen the major news websites do. I attribute the source of the pic, but don't provide an actual live link to it.

    This business certainly is a continual challenge...

    Maybe HP already makes photo attribution links automatic no-follows. I hope so.

    But even if they do, HP says those links can still trigger the overly-promotional filter. Which, I imagine, would knock down one's profile score.

    Did I mention about this business being a continual challenge...?

      Thank you so much for the tip paradigmsearch. I deleted the links and just mentioned the sources..

        I hope to heck it works and gets you above the 85 demarcation point. From what I have seen of your hubs, you are entitled to that.

        Sometimes the source of a photo requires a link.  When that is the case, you can do that at the end of your Hub, in a text module, and choose the NoFollow option for the link.

    The best way to keep your "hubber" score up seems to actively and frequently review your hubs; tweak them; update them; if possible add new content.

      I found one of my first hubs today and the score has dropped.  I edited it, added about 400 more words, added 2 more photos, and the score went up 6 points on it from just that little bit of editing.

    I have to agree with mbuggieh and Craftytothecore, when I edit my hubs my score generally goes up....If I go awhile without editing...it will start to drop.
