I am kind of trying to figure this foolishness out as well. My accounts with very little activity have a higher Hubber score than the account I use on a regular basis. Very disheartening and confusing.
They could have just deleted all of their hubs and moved them. They may be active in the forums, who knows. Nobody knows how these scores are used, calculated etc bc it is a HP secret. They have nothing to do with earnings or search engines. They only mean something to HP and those who chase those scores. Staff and members have tried to get HP to get rid of the scores for some years to no avail.
A hubber score below 85, HP makes all external links no follows, but they end up unfeaturing hubs when they use external links anyway.
I deleted my hubs some months ago. My hubber score has gone down since I stopped participating much in forums, questions and answers. Otherwise, it was about the same as it was with 79 hubs.
Like I said, scores make no sense and mean zip in the long run.
You can have a score of 80,publish more hubs and watch your score drop to 75 They don't mean anything!!! Hub scores are just as useless and secretive as hubber scores are. High or low, earnings are from ads, and sales which has nothing to do with scores. Not Google, nor any search engine knows what your scores are, and really don't care.
Actually Linda, I just want to get do follow links so I am asking about score. If hub and hubber score is not enough, we can't get a do follow back link. Now I connected with you on twitter, I want to know something more about if you don't mind.
Average hub score plays into hubber score somehow, but it's hard to say exactly how. I've had 100 hubber score when my average hub score was five points lower than it is now and I was less active on HP. Publishing a new hub drops hubber score, even if it has an initial individual hub score in the nineties. Editing hubs seems to drop hubber score as well sometimes, even if the edits result in increases in hub scores on the edited hubs. But I've noticed that, over time, the hubber score rises back to and sometimes surpasses its former level.
I think there's an average hub score below which one cannot have a hubber score above 85. What that average is, I have no idea.
You can improve average hub score by working on hubs until they rise in hub score, but it's slow going so you have to be patient.
In my opinion, the best thing you can do to improve your hubber score is to improve your hubs. Edit out errors, improve internal hub organization, and add more text content and high-quality photos to all of your hubs. That's what I'm currently working on when I have time to work on HubPages.
Yep Paradigm and love your description. Judging by my current Hubber score I am thinking that my hubs have been sent to a dungeon somewhere far off in a foreign land never to be seen nor heard from again.
I'm not so sure there's a cut-off number; seems like they put the top scoring Hubs at the top of the list of Hubs on the pages with all the Hubs and if there are a lot of 100s then your 80 might not show up until way down the list and probably will not be found by anyone.
I started editing many of my hubs, when my hubber score suddenly dropped from 89 to 67 in first week of March. I edited half of them, mostly old hubs prior to 6 months. Individual scores increased by some points but again dropped in a month as there is no traffic. Hubber score is swinging daily from 68 to 64 or in between. Today it is 62, just now. I wonder why all this happens. I think my quality is okay mostly and I input all capsules as per standards of HubPages.
I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...
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...
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...
I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my...
