similar scores no matter what I do

    Ugh! I'm getting frustrated. The scores I get for my hubs fall into such a narrow range. Surely, some are much better than others, but the scores don't reflect this. Surely, the ones I've written more recently are stronger than the ones I wrote when I first started. Why don't the scores reflect that improvement? The amount of time and research I put into a hub is not reflected in the score. Is anyone else experiencing this?

      That's because HubScore has nothing to do with quality. 

      The best advice I can give is to ignore them.  I have no idea why HubPages even bothers with HubScore and HubberScore, because they are so inaccurate and cause so much anxiety and yet achieve nothing.

      A couple of years ago we had a couple of lovely moderators who freely admitted the scores were all rubbish. However they did explain that HubPages didn't want to remove the scores until they could come up with something better.    We had a lively debate about it - until the founder of HubPages dropped in to say he LOVED  the scores.  End of debate.

        Thanks, Marisa. That helps a lot.

    According to HubPages own explanation (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/hubs … d_13970187), your Hub scores are most effected by the QAP process, reader consumption and interaction with your Hub, the length of the Hub and the number of comments it receives.

    You'll notice your time and research are not accounted for in those metrics.

    I'm not worrying about mine.  I noticed a drop in them last week only to see them all rise this weekend. I've also seen an increase in traffic so not sure if that has anything to do with it. My earnings went up too a little. :-)
