Ah ha! Now I has a name to go with your fa..Avatar! oh, artful one! @"Andre".. I din't' think I would care what my score was, but now I use it to gauge my participation. That is my personal thing, but i am a bit off kilter...In fact do not heed a thing I just wrote.
I think both Pest and I offend in different ways, we seem to have a knack for that, I have gotten some great e-mails in the past from "unknown" people but it only amuses me. I have noticed my fan count fluctuate and I will admit booting out a couple who became my fan who were mad fanners
Ya can't please everyone...I loooooove the self righteous peoples. They amuse me. i play a dumb shit in my Hubs so they come across as if I am actually as dumb as a stump. Traffic is traffic and it all counts.
Who knows, you however are doing a great job as you have only been here for a short period of time and are at an 81. I have been here 16 months and mine bounces from 97 to 91 , it is odd as I can look at and it is a 97 and then go away and come back 91, but as you can see none of us concern ourselves much, the celebration will be when I hit 100.
Aaawww, thanks Pest and you are a 100 in my book too!!! Forums also count? I didn't know that, my goodness I am always learning something and I have been here 16 months, thanks for sharing that info. By the way have you started on that book? You have stocked up on Petroleum , I heard it is on sale .LOL:D Big Hugs ()
It is absolutely nuts isn't it? With my luck I will be working or sleeping. Hey I gotta an idea, if you get to 100 and miss it and I catch I will let you know and vice versa this way we know we made it to the magical number. LOL:)
I am totally new at this, and have been here only a week, so I can't really say. From what I have heard, though, the number seems to be a mystery to even experienced hubbers, and it fluctuates a lot, depending on a lot of factors. My first few days, my score was in the 60's, then it jumped to 80 something, and it floats around here and there. I don't entirely understand it. I know this doesn't help you understand it, either. All I know is the more quality hubs you write, the more you participate by posting in the forums, leaving comments on hubs you read, and joining fan clubs of hubbers you like, the higher your score will be. I don't understand the way it works, or what they use to calculate it, or who keeps track of it all, but that is the best I can do.
Golden Toad and I were both hubnugget candidates right after New years, that helped a lot, for me anyway. Can't sspeak for toad though. Just keep writing, you'll get there and who knows maybe you'll climb to the magical 100.
Some folks seem obsessed with producing Hubs just for Hubs sake...I mean, some folks are putting out a Hub a day...I guess they are in it for the prestige of achieving a 100 score....Hub Pages to me are a community of people, around the world, that express themselves either personally through poetry or prose, or commercially, through how-to's, travel, culture, etc
I could care less what my Hub score is...what I appreciate most is the feedback I receive from my fellow hubbers, and the comments I exchange with them..
The difference Maven is you write for the love, they write for the job/money. If you can make $5 a day from hubpages, it might not sounds like much, but in some parts of the world, that's a lot money to make! Some hubbers publish 3 or 4 a day (or it seems like it anyway!)
Don't much know about scores, never much care, either you like me or you don't and I do what I do for me and hope that someone hears what I'm trying to say, and cares. or at least has fun reading what I wrote. I have fun reading you. What else really matters.
the scoring must mean something as someone checking into the general hubs or hubbers page is going to see the hubbers with the highest scores first. (i keep saying hubbers enough and it sounds like babbling)
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...
So my author hubscore has been consistantly going down. I am at 93 today which is lower than I have been in many months. Lately I have been addding a lot of hubs, at least one per day over the lat two...
A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be....
I am sort of disappointed. I try to be active in the site as much as possible, comment on other people's hubs, help out in the forums, add new hubs once every two weeks, participate in the question and answer and...
After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers...
