Hmmm, made a couple of very minor edits on my highest scoring hub. I think I moved an Amazon capsule and maybe changed a word or two. A day or two later now, I just noticed the hub score went from the low 90s to 79. So, are the scoring standards changing or is it just arbitrary depending on who does the scoring?
Your post caused me to check my one and only hub I updated today. Yep, damn thing knocked down 10 points.
Well, as for me, I went through this one time and I do not feel like it (mentally) to do this all over again. I am going to stay in my cave and write. That way, no shrapnel can hit me.
So should I be looking at hub scores? I never do. I just look to see whether or not my hubs are featured and if they're getting views. I thought that like our hubber scores, hub scores are assigned by some mysterious and wonky alogrithm that is meaningless. Should I concern myself with hub scores?
yes, I just asked a question right after you did or I wouldnt have asked it! My scores are in the low 70s and quite a few in the 60s...getting depressed! All the work and I have never had such low hub scores..Still lot's of page views and comments, doesn't seem to matter. Google still recognizing on first page first position on some hubs I've had for a while..those scores used to be 98, now they are 71
These comments are very disturbing. People should not be frightened to upgrade their hubs. Time for HP to fix this problem and to fix hubber score as well.
Totally agree. And along with all the other detriments, it takes the joy out of everything.
Well, I must say, that a lot of time goes into publishing these articles. I am not the best writer by no means, but I do put a lot of thought and time into what I am writing. It does seem that my scores have plummeted and it makes me frown when I log into my hubs and see the low scores that I so try to keep up . It almost feels like a slap in the face. I am not complaining by no means, but it does sting a little.

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What...

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...

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...

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...
