The is yet another query on Hub scores...I just published a new poem today, and prior to publication, and immediately after, it was at a score of 51.
Now, AFTER 3 visits WITH comments, and 2 more visits (without comments, but e-mailed to me)...the score has dropped to 49.
What gives? I thought traffic upped your scores...???
There are too many variables. Don't worry. You're putting undue stress on yourself.
Thanks, Cagsil..LOL...yes, I do that quite well. ... it just peeved me, since the poem got 3 rave reviews in the comments.
A lot of people do.
It's understandable. Try to relax. I have had hubs go down before they up. Nothing to worry about, as long as it doesn't go below 40.
I just had one do the same thing. Cags is right, sometimes they take a little dip at first. Could be from a down rating, or not. Sometimes the activity on a hub can take a bit to be reflected on the score. If you do have some that fall into the forties like you were talking about, I wouldn't delete them though. Just unpublish and try to revamp them. (btw...if you let a hub sit unpublished a bit before publishing, sometimes the score will rise a little on its own. Some call it marinating
I never worry about scores, it takes time. Somethings pan out while others don't the important thing is to put it out there and move on!
You can edit and work on any hub anytime.

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...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

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...

Why is my new hub scored so low? I started a new monicker to write on a very different subject, but my first hub is only rated a 74 and it's been up for 2 weeks. I'm used to 80s and 90s scores. Please provide feedback,...

Just curious why my author score is dropping....My first few hubs were basically promotional and shorter and I had a score of 79. It has dropped to 67 as of today after a new hub I put up that was not promotional and...
