      To have a hubber score of 1, and over 500 followers, you really are a legend.big_smile

    If you read the FAQ, it details what not to do in your Hubs.  To get a score of 1, the lowest possible, most often many violations are occurring.

    You appear to be merely copying and pasting statistics from various computer specifications =for instance

    The last hubber I saw with a score of one was because he was a rampant follower. If you did about 5,000 follows to get your 500 followers, then I’m guessing that is the cause. smile

    All I could ask here is,

    1: Is there anything in there that you didn't copy and paste from a manual? I'm agreeing with Barry. On the one hand some of it seems fairly original and unique whereas the rest of it is something I would read if I actually purchased the product and/or looked at the specifications on the side of the package.

    2: I've been on for almost two years now and I don't have even a hundred, let alone five hundred followers. Most of my followers are there because of my hubs, not because I "follow" them.

    3: If your google adsense account is going up, that'd be the only thing I'd stay concerned with. Otherwise, maybe write a few more original hubs.

      Oh and I just wanted to add: One of the things I find helps my hubscore is participation. Answering questions, asking questions and helping out in the forums.

    NateSean, I'm sure you are a nice person and your intentions are good. But I'd dare call what you are suggesting wishful thinking in the extreme. Nothing will help get out of the morasses, except perhaps to clean up the account completely.

            Nice help guys..................here is an example of the problem I am seeing. Repetitive paragraphs.
            "Pokemon series are the killer titles in Nintendo ds. So we can expect pokemon in Nintendo 3ds too. Pokemon series are the traditional games for Nintendo. So, surely Pokemon will be available for Nintendo 3ds. There's no reason for Nintendo to take this game out of 3DS"

            This is in 3 of your paragraphs!

            Reread, rewrite- republish...good luck

              Hub is degenerating in to too cutthroat a society for any real assistance to be expected.

              Although, for the record, I did make a comment in one of his hubs that should be constructive enough for him to use.

        Post a few links in the Extreme makeover section and you will get constructive ideas and  you can take it from there.

        Well, it looks like his score is steadily rising. Whether that's from original views by the people trying to help him, or he's following advice, is hard to say.

        Still, I stand by what I've said before. If you have a Google Adsense acccount, diversify. Find other venues to connect to it.

    Also, reading some of your fan mail, how many people are you following?

  11. sofs profile image85
    sofsposted 6 years ago

    That is an excellent point... indiscriminately following people can also cause you to be penalized, I am not suggesting that this is the only reason, it is added to the fact that hub don't have original content ...may be it will help to sort out those issues first before putting them on extreme makeover.

        I'm now sure of it. It is because he is following a bunch of people (he is probably following around 2-5 thousand hubbers, and around 600 decided to return the favor).

    I don't want to be rude but one time there was someone that was actually criticizing that saying this wasn't facebook; I follow you, you follow me. I know there are many people that have a lot of followers but I thought people followed each other because of the content not to return favors or am I wrong?

    1. NateSean profile image81
      NateSeanposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I'm fairly certain that's the case with about 90% of people who use this site.

      Frankly, Hubpage should not be the primary source of your Google Adsense revenue.

      Website Examinerposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Concerning the OP, I think some Hubbers have concluded that he could not have nearly that many followers without having followed x times more to attract them. In my experience, this analysis seems to be correct. Even getting 100 followers isn't that easy.

      The HubPages FAQs makes it clear that following people "indiscriminately" can hurt the author score. Usually, such behavior has one reason and one alone: To gain followers. It is clearly a practice that HubPages doesn't support; at least not on a big scale.

      This said, I don't think that following many Hubbers will alone be nearly enough to bring someone's author score down to 1.

        iamalegend, Don't pay any attention to these individuals. Most of them act as though they are professionals that have been doing this on the hub pages for over 50 years. The hub pages have only been around for 4 short years, and I have a car battery that's older than that. If some changes aren't made soon, the hub pages won't be around in another 4 years just like my car battery. I believe you wrote a very good hub on that subject.  As far as the #1 on your score goes, don't worry about it, and  who cares. The reason most of  these people here have a high score is because they DON'T FOLLOW anyone in return. To have been around for a few years on the hub pages and not even have 100 followers says a lot about that individual. You can see that simply by going down their history. I wouldn't waste my time following a person like that. The fact is sometime recently the powers to be at the hub pages put in place a process that lowers the score of a hubber who THEY consider has followed too many people. Therefore those that have been here on the hub pages for a WHOLE 2,3 or 4 years weren't penalized for doing this in the past. Again, don't worry about some silly score. Don't worry about some piddly little check. If you want some extra money, then just work a little over time in the real world. Just write on the hub pages for fun, like a lot of people do, and don't get involved in the childish politics, like it appears is happening here. Stop on by this link - <snipped link> And you'll see what I mean by just having fun. Take care imalegend, and the rest of you can jump in Lake Michigan.

          Okay, I'm curious - what does it say about me?

            I think this individual was saying that such people are not worthwhile following because they are unlikely to follow you back. That individual seems to think that people who have relatively few followers after a period on HubPages are likely not popular for that reason.

            I believe the analysis is incorrect. I hardly follow anyone, yet I have been building a solid following simply by being active.

              I agree, WE.  I am very selective about whom I follow - I firmly believe that following means taking an interest, and you can't possiby keep track of the work of more than a handful of Hubbers at a time. 

              Originally, we didn't have "followers" we had "fans", which was a far more accurately descriptive word.  Several of us were very disappointed when it was changed to "followers", because that implies the brainless following and friending of Twitter rather than a genuine admiration for one's work.

              The practice of penalising Hubbers who go on "fanning sprees" has been in place for a long time and I think it's a good thing.

    Glad to see you at 84. I am just doing my thing posting hubs and just joined a week ago, so I hope to have a hubberscore like yours eventually, but guess I have to be patient.

    My hub scores are not too bad after a week. I am hanging around high 60s to low 70s. Happy about that.
