I can't figure it out. My hubber score has been in the 94-96 range for a year or more. Now I notice it seems to be falling. Today, it is 89. If I were to graph it, it would show a downward trend. I know this should not bug me, but I can't figure out the reason for this. Views are up, better than ever, I'm writing more hubs than in the past (most of which go immediately to a vertical site), my average hub score is 83, I'm updating older hubs, I'm participating in forums, and reading and commenting on other hubs more than before, I gaining followers and following others--but my score keeps dropping. I can't think of a single thing that I am doing or not doing to explain this sudden change in the hubber score. Any ideas?
P.S. My best hub in terms of views--it's on a vertical site--has a hub score of 78. It has been as high as 100 in the past. It even has lots of comments. All good ones. Why is this happening?
I have noticed that if I am very active on HP, my score will tend to drop a little. Especially following too many people in a short time-span seems to be detrimental.
When I first came here I figured more activity would be better, but experience has shown me that some activity is good, but that does not mean more is better.
I'm wondering if the average of all a hubbers scores( total hubber score) is lessened when hubs have been edited and resubmitted. Maybe they are not included at the moment the score is changed.
The ways of the hubber score are mysterious. Mine used to be better, but some change in the algorithm or whatever happened, and I have been 80-ish ever since.
In that same boat. I haven't fret over it, much. From what I've gathered most people don't really pay attention to it. In fact, I'm a bit confused why it's being used in the first place.
I know. But I am that Type A personality. I want to excel. Since the scores are so meaningless and seemingly arbitrary, why doesn't HP just abolish them. If you don't know how to improve your score, it doesn't serve as a motivator. It just makes me angry and then I don't feel like writing any new hubs.
Exactly! It's difficult to know exactly what a person needs to do to bring their score up. This has been a thorn in my side for years.
I agree. It's especially odd when your traffic increases, but a score drops. Or when you review a few hubs on the hopper (to be a good citizen here), and it drops. Or when you create new content that immediately gets approved and gets views, and it drops.

One of the advantages of having an overall hubber score of 75 or above is that we get 'Dofollow' links on our hubs, which are considered more valuable by Google when deciding search results.My question is, if my hubber...

I wish there was a way to turn it off. It goes up and down without reason, and it can be very distressing.
