I say big picture, encouraging. Small picture (personal stats) not a similar trend. Almost inversely related.
In a way, that's good. My scores have continued to steadily plummet since August. A couple of new and quality hubs (imho), with initially reflective scores, started to undo the demotivating impact of the plummet.
But luckily the plummeting has regained it's momentum, keeping me from getting sucked back into hub writing when my kids, health, and home need me more.
Because try as I may to no care about scores, they exist (and I am too new for making money here), therefore I care.
So for now, my personal traffic is down, my scores are falling even farther below what I can accept as rational or acceptable, but the bigger picture looks good. For me that is good because at the every least, I intend to spend more time and energy here if some combination of the following occurs:
1. A scoring algorithm with merit and logic evolves over time, or
2. The current one eventually is explained in a reasonable manner, or
3. Traffic once again negates the demotivating impact of plummeting scores, or
4. I have more time for writing and other priorities, or
5. I just feel so inclined.
I say... I need someone smarter than me to 'splain what I'm looking at. Haha. I guess it's saying that traffic to HP is "up?"

So, I have finally finished my goal of writing 100 hubs but I have not published them yet as I'm practically frightened of what HP will do with them. I feel like I have been "flagged" meaning I just imagine...

I have had a few hubs moved to various niche sites with hub scores ranging from 69 to 87. I feel I have much better hubs remaining on the original site than some of those selected to move, especially my latest which was...

Happy Friday, Hubbers!Next week we will be raising the quality threshold for newly-published Hubs (meaning newly-Featured Hubs will, on the whole, be of higher quality) and will also be giving Featured Hubs (for those...

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'm very happy with the results of the niche sites. It's a win-win for HubPages and writers like myself. But I'm a bit curious about the process for choosing Hubs that go on those sites.One of my most successful Hubs on...
