swilliams, Everyone notices that. It has to do with the Hub being published, reviewed, going through the QAP, and checked for any errors and such. When everything is done in several days it will go back up. Be patient. It is nothing new.
I do have patience, Examiner. A few short months ago, I would have metled-down,but today I consider a point or two drop in my Hub Score a necessary cog in a huge wheel and one day, It will go up again. Thanks for the support.
What are you having for dinner? Bird seed? I joke a I kid. But all joking aside, is bird seed safe for humans to eat? I ask because you are an expert at bird watching. Love the Hubs. I should stay on topic. I do await insightful information. Thank you.
Certain bird seed is safe to eat and others are not. Some can be added to dishes or cooked. I had my usual - a sandwich with some salmon from a can, spices and cheese. Plus tea and desert. As for your question, I would guess that it is like editing a Hub. As you wait for the sudden response to traffic reply, it is similar to a 'shock' to your Hub and it has to bounce back.
Dear swilliams, Emphatically, NO, you are NOT kicked-out of our "Cool Alliance." In order to be even nominated for a kick-out, you need to publish a hub and aim it at ME using flimsy adjectives, a lot of "yew know?" a few "like, you know," and a "Ewwwww," or two. Other than this one rule, you are in good standing with our group.
Oh thank you Kenneth! I was very concerned about being kicked out of our unofficial group. I'm only human. I normally don't worry like that.... okay, yes I do. But I'm working on It! Thank you for not kicking me out the group. And I do have a Hub with Ew! in it, complements of Jimmy Fallon, but none of them are about you. :-)
swilliams, You will be so proud of me for not worrying about my hubscore that between your comments, my replies and this comment . . . 1. I took a nap 2. Walked a half mile for exercise 3. Taught my cat to do a trick 4. Started learning Portuguese So you are right. Worrying does not pay.
Yes, of course Kenneth! We will call it the let's not have a heart attack over your Hubscore alliance! Actually that's too long I'll have to think of something shorter. I'm open for suggestions. I actually sneezed and my Hubscore went down. But you are right Kenneth no worries. "Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” ― Corrie ten Boom That sure does sound good on paper :-)
It's always good to update your Hubs every so often. Sometimes change happens for the best. I worked for a company that updated their programs every year! They told me their system is like a tween kid, they always have to try on new outfits to stay ahead of the game. If the outfit works fine and if it does not, at least they tried. I have learned that Flexibility opens the door to growth.
I am talking about the score that is next the actual article itself. Google bots may play a role behind the scene. I would love to take an SEO training class however...I'm still trying to grasp the Google analytics concept. It's a lot to take in.
You provided a wealth of information involving SEO thank you. I do believe that understanding SEO is important. Yet, some experts say that it can be a tricky game at time and very time consuming. Very informative info. Thanks Writer Fox!
Are you kidding me? I am the woman who killed the word Squidoo. I will never make fun of a typo for the rest my life. I am banning myself. Seriously...You can spell the word zoo wrong. You can say," I went to the OOZ today." and i will ignore the typo and think... maybe she or he met zoo. I'm so over it.
My hub scores have gone up even though I hadn't published anything for awhile and traffic has not been booming for me. However, since I have added new hubs, participated in forums, etc, my HUBBER SCORE has dropped almost 10 points.
It's sad when this happens. I am positive person for the most part. I just want to bring awareness on how to address this situation. I feel that most of us really strive to be authors of quality. We want to do our best, so it is weird when you try to participate and then your Hubscore drops. As matter of fact I have been talking a lot on this thread maybe may I should pipe down... it does not seem to be helping my Hubscore. But I was told that I should participate. I feel like I'm being attacked by the Hubscore Grim Reaper...
I must say, that it nice to know that one can write about what they know or have experienced without being fearful of their Hubscore. Because let's face it, if my Hubscore is reflection of poor writing skills then I don't want to keep writing...that's sad. Oh Just a tab bit of info. My daughter is visiting me before she takes off for college. She is majoring in communications. She told me large project is none of business for now. And my future daughter-in-law from the U.K. who is also majoring in communications told me to get off the computer. :-)
Hi Peggy! Yes I read that one too. I just noticed that some weird stuff was happening. Due to some big project changes, the Hubscore is going through some changes. I think it's getting a face Lift I think they should use short words instead of numbers.
100% to 90% Really in depth articles Evergreens = AW = for Absolutely wonderful! 80% Detailed articles= NB= Not Bad! 70% The middle of the Road articles = O= Okay. 40% The I'm not sure what's going on here- articles= H= Hugh? Anything below 40% The horrible insane what were they thinking articles E= Ew!
But that probably would not work either because then I would be wondering why do have an E for Ew! hubscore? Yep. :-(
I have not much knowledge of Hubs score but as i know few facts about seo, may it be the factor. More you add the words more fluctuation in your keyword density. Also some addition may alter the perfection of the entire article that make it drop the hub score.
@swilliams It's never about length. It's always the information. May you write 200 words good content full of information needed by me, I sure read the article many times but 1000+ words not relevant to me or lack the information - it not worthy, will leave never come back again.
I agree that an article should be based on fact and engaging for the reader. However when I wrote articles for certain news outlets they wanted 500 words not over 600 words, And Google likes evergreen content such as Wikipedia. Which are lengthy articles,
We are not Wikipedia, we are better. For one thing, most writers do not seem to edit the articles before they are posted, and nobody does it afterwards either. For Evergreen content they do not seem to do very well. I do not see polls, quizzes, hardly a map or a video, etc. They have many links, maybe too many, sometimes they do not work and usually they only go somewhere else in Wikipedia.
I know that when I search for something on Google, Wikipedia is usually one of the top items listed. I use Wiki often and I have looked at many of their links in, and below, their articles. That is how I have noticed the errors in the articles.
@Swilliams you don't need to worry about your hubscore. Even I noticed the same thing on my score last month when I edited one of my hubs. Believe me it keeps on fluctuating and after some time, you will notice a rise in your score.
Hi dhimanreena! That is encouraging to hear. I think maybe I should not edit all of my Hubs at once. That could confuse the Hub Score fairy. I have a very big imagination. I'm starting to see a small ray of hope. However I look forward to change, and strive to do everything right on my end. Thanks!
word55, I just read about someone else who was going to do that and they were told not to, it would make any difference. If you are set on this then go to the Amazon capsule(s) and check off the box for "Do not show this" before you delete them to see whether it makes a difference.
That is a good question - I have always wondered that too! I wonder if it has something to do with trust factors and Google? I heard that after you publish someone and it goes on Google that if you republish it ... it lowers the trust factor. Not sure if that is true or not.
Hi there, I'd been on Hubpages for 6 months now but probably been active for only 2 or 3 weeks. At the moment, I have 7 hubs and only 1 have breached the 80 mark (75-85). Most are in the 70s. 1-2 will drop down to 60s...
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...
I've been here long enough to realize that hub scores can be low for good hubs and high for those so-so hubs. I also know that hub scores are based on more than content so traffic and reader comments and other things...
