For the last month I have been seeing some radical scoring on my hubs. Just looking at two hubs to check stats I found that a poem, which was scored at 59 less than a week ago jumped up to 71. A creative piece that I did just for wacky fun had a low score (low 70s) since I published it - has suddenly jumped to 93. I have not edited either hub since I published them. Last crawl by Google on the poem was six hours ago, but the score was at 71 days before the crawl. Last crawl by Google on the wacky creative piece was three weeks ago, but the hub just jumped to 93 today.
What is going on with these radical changes? They are not slowly creeping up or down, but jumping several points. As I said, I only checked the two hubs. Could this be a technical problem - or should I post this in another forum?
Yes, Phyllis. Seems we are all having problems. With me they are certainly very inconsistent. I would be very happy if your piece about the Woven Tapestry had gone to 93, though. Even more!. It's a brilliant piece of work!
That is very kind of you to say about Woven Tapestry, Manatita. Thank you.
Usually I am not too concerned about my hub scores - I write, I publish, then I let it be so I can go on to another piece of writing. This inconsistency in scoring, though, has just really made me wonder what is going on. It seems like every day my whole list of hubs has been switched around as if someone is playing chess with them. Funny and curious thing it is.
I have been watching this going on in my stats for some time. I try to edit what I can but I do not delete any , I just leave them. I do not worry about it, I just wait for (good) surprises. I think that it has to do with Google and views (I check Google Analytics occasionally).
Hi Kevin. I am not editing any hubs lately because a hub could be scored way low then jump, for no reason I see, several points the next day. I am not complaining about low scores or unfeatured hubs. I have 166 hubs, all featured.
I am just plain curious why the hub scores change so radically when I have done no editing and see no up or down arrows on them. I am not worried about the scores, just find it odd that my list changes every day and there is no consistency. It is like one of Frank's hubs on mystery where there are no obvious clues.
I've noticed a drop in my highest rating hubs that have held a consistent score of 100. I don't know what's going on. I'm hoping it's a glitch.
I am baffled Phyllis. I have had one hub that was 88 a few weeks ago drop to my lowest scoring hub 53, and another that I haven't altered has gone up from 70 to 88.

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...

On Friday, April 3rd, I chose two of my hubs with the highest hub scores and made one, distinct change. On Saturday, after seeing the results, I did the same thing to six more. First I will give my results,...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...

Has anyone noticed a marked change in their hub scores? I only noticed today so not sure if it happened today or in the recent past.. But some of my hubs have seen a marked increase from 70's and 80's into the 90's and...

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...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or...
