The up/down votes on my computer are visible after a choice has been made until the next. Over time I've noticed an entire category voted down in a very short period of time. Today all 6 or 7 hubs in the history category were voted down within minutes. How should a hubber handle this situation that apparently isn't going to end?
How can you tell that they are being voted down?
In the case with down votes the red image stays depressed Susan. If this were to happen with a hub or two fine, but when its been going on for awhile and you have say 6 hubs in the same category voted down very quickly, that tells you something smells rotten in Denmark.
The voting up and down mechanism is just a part of the process, which is known to be Hubscore and Authorscore. There are plenty of other factors that are weighed on also.
Having a category or even an individual hub voted up or down, is to be worried about. The votes themselves are minor and has been stated by HP Staff on previous occasions.
Hope that helps.
So maybe I'm wasting time pleading like a streetcorner hobo for vote ups...
Is there any action on the part of readers that is more useful?
Sharing to Twitter or Facebook is way more useful than Votes. But I have yet to see a marked increase in hits even when I do get shared. And the social networkers just come, read and go. They aren't buying, at least not from me.
The only 'useful' hub score is 100 which gets you on the top pages for a while and atracts a bit more attention from the Hub crowd. Alternatively lots of comments and acitivty will get you into the Hot Hubs section for a while.
But again, this is Hub traffic mainly, and they don't click or buy stuff.
All good for ego, and encouragement when writing so important but... the money game is in Search traffic.
I haven't cracked that either.
Sorry, went on a bit.
I am going to go back to my hubs and try and see what you see. I don't see anything. I see the arrows for the traffic flow, but that is all.
Yes it does Cagsil thank you. Water will find it's own level so to speak but the maliciousness of it is becoming irksome and if there's a next time HP staff will get an e-mail on it. Oh, its great to have you back Cags, don't know what you've got until its gone.

I've noticed that there is at least one post claiming to have gained a significant amount of traffic this week, but for me, my traffic has dropped by 50%. One hub, which at its height was getting over 4k hits a...

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...

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total...
