Help! My Hubscore was 92 (down from 95 three days ago) then I published a new hub, totally unique for HubPages as far as I can tell, with over 1,300 words and my Hubscore went down!! Anybody know how it's worked out and why my score went down? I keep checking my score and I'm in danger of becoming obsessed.
It's like obsessing over the weather. Please, just focus on writing good Hubs.
The hub score thing is very frustrating. I have been writing for 2 years. My score is usually in the mid to high nineties and just today I dropped to an 87, despite the fact that my stats are up! That makes absolutely no sense.
Absolutely pointless to be obsessed.
Hubscore has no correlation with anything meaningful, including the most meaningful parameter of all, namely the earnings from your hubs.
mooboomoo just relax, firstly nobody knows the exact algorithm except HP and there is a level of randomness built into it to ensure that things change.
There really is no point worrying about it. Just write unique content and get traffic and as long as you are above no-follow threshold then it's all good.
I think that it is affected by the traffic going to your hubs. Under my account it has arrows indictating if the traffic to a hub is going up or down. Traffic will vary everyday.
Trying to increase my income I have been editing my hubs and unpublished hubs that weren't doing well. My scores started going haywire. Obsessing is bad for your indigestion.
You really do not have to worry until your author score falls below 75 and hubscores below 40 when all links become no follow. Hub scores have absolutely no meaning.. I was at 100 for a day and fell to 97 .. it just doesn't matter as long as your traffic is fine.. Keep working, ignore these minor fluctuations. Best wishes.
It is all to do with pixies and moondust, nothing us mere mortals have any real control over.... did you leave a mince pie for Santa at Christmas? If not that could be part of the reason, and no carrots for the reindeer would have had a huge impact!!
Thank you all! I shall actively ignore them then and just keep on writing.

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...

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

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers...

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...

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be....

I have strived over the last 5 weeks to produce as many hubs as i can but to a high quality. I heard at first that if go around serial 'following' this can penalise your hubscoreI added a few people but then cut down...
