    I have been working my hinds off here for FREE in the past three years and more and my score is 58 I write quality hubs, adding pictures, links etc and this is the thanks i get when i see a Hubber with absolutely nothing on his/her profile  a blank picture....but has a 72 score. Now isn't that pretty much disturbing?? How is this possible ? Do you get a higher score for not writing? If so please let me know thanks!!

      When a profile has no hubs or activity the system has no way of grading the Hubberscore, so it is scored by default. I have a 6 year old account I have never published a hub on with a score of 78. It's just the way it is.

        Hi colourfulone thanks for answering a pleasant good day to you and yours . However it is very unfair if a person have no hubs they should generate it from 0-100 . That can be fixed because it is an insult to someone who is writing their life out for free here as oppose to someone who isn't that committed to writing here.

          You are not the only Hubber that feels that way, it has been discussed many times in the forums. The Team knows that it is an issue for some people. I hope they can change the scoring so people do not feel insulted because of the scoring.

            I too hope so it makes me feel unappreciated and I have written over 165 hubs.
            Thanks for coming back colourful one smile

        Hi colorfulone,

        Normally accounts that have never had any published Hubs should never have a Hubber Score that high. The score on your other account was caused by a bug that our engineers are working on right now. Thanks for letting us know! smile

          Thank you for letting me know that it is a bug, Christy.
          Good to know the HP Engineers are working on that.
          One day everyone will be Happy, Happy, Happy! smile

      Hi LadyFiddler,

      The only reason a Hubber with no Hubs would have a Hubber Score in the 70s is if he or she had some high ranking Hubs on that account at some point and has since deleted or unpublished them. We certainly don't want great Hubbers to feel demotivated, but we also don't feel that it's fair to take away a Hubber's score just because she/he has removed content; that score was earned fair and square. smile

        Yes i understand what you are saying Christy Kirwan thanks for coming by but there are some who never published a thing and have a high score. Also i had my score in the 70's and i seldom delete a hub i mostly add contents then how is my score rapidly dropping. I do not do any old wishy washy hubs like some people knock up here. I make sure and put pics URL, high resolution photos etc . I see people doing the hubs after hubs with one picture for every hub sometimes four to five lines and it's rated high as opposed to someone who goes the extra miles to get pictures to sooth the content and even try to follow the hub format. I even use original photos at times. That is what i call not fair!

          There is a bug currently that is causing some Hubbers who have never published Hubs to have an artificially high Hubber Score, but our engineers are working on fixing it as we speak. I'm so sorry if it's caused you stress!

            We hope they work fast because this bug seems to be around for quite sometime. The bug needs to bite the working hubbers score instead!

        Spam and banned accounts that never had hubs often score about 70. So I do not think that is the explanation. It has been commented on for years.

      I have been told lately that any links on our hubs should not be linkable (blue) even in the photos for it will be Google unfriendly or something and no more linking  other hubs of our own or anyone elses on our hubs. I have been busy trying to take care of that but have not noticed a difference yet. Probably have much to do yet.

        Hi Jackie thanks for your contribution. What the heck so what color the link suppose to be ? these changes have been going crazier and crazier since 2010. Most of our hubs have blue links, one minute links are optional another minute it's a problem if you don't link them. Father have mercy so therefore that means we have to go and unlink all our google pictures and get new ones that isn't blue? Sigh is best i forget it because its already charity work but we still drive the traffic here as small as it might be.

        Jackie, whoever told you that was misinformed. HubPages has not stated that about blue links or to not link to hubs on hubs. Some people get things so mixed up from time to time and then misinform others.

      We deployed a fix in the last few days that should address some isolated issues with HubberScores.
      Thanks for your patience!

    its hubpages way of telling you to create a blank account and leave it to view your high hub-score with no hubs while the more you write the lower your score gets.  Just ignore hub-pages and their scoring...just write something that has potential to go viral and you will be good...i have been trying that for 10 months here sigh.......!! right now my traffic is like deplorable!!

      LOL hi Clive sometimes i think i did a wonderful hub and it will go viral but it don't. I know people that use original photos and do excellent hubs like "Jackie Lynnley" but I don't think she has ever gotten a hub of the day and her score to has fallen. So it's baffling and i can't ignore it i believe good work or hard labour must be appreciated we already don't get paid for it. If we do not write nobody will come here to hubpages.

      Hi Calculus how did you do that ? LOL so you see what I am talking about right!  I wrote Hubpages personally i hope they can give me an explainable explanation.

    I bet if you went back and took all the crazy characters out of your Hub titles it would help your score.

    For example on your Hub "If you've got leaving on your mind☆☆☆☆☆ Patsy Cline & Ladyfiddler Duet" having all those stars in the title is going to get that Hub ranked lower.

    1. colorfulone profile image87
      colorfuloneposted 21 months ago in reply to this

      Yes, it would likely help to get rid of those characters.

      Hi Relache thanks for coming by but don't you think you can be a little polite in saying i should remove the characters. Instead of how you put it over? Thanks for the advice do i will do.

    I checked an account I have that I never wrote anything on and it has a score of 78. I'd just like the account deleted.
