Does anyone else feel a slight addiction to their hub score?
My score is never associated with how much money I've earned so I don't really psy too much attention to it, although I do get a ittle sad the few times I've had a 100 score and it drops so quickly (
Maybe you are comptetitive and like to have a good score. I like to challenge myself and and see what makes my score higher, etc. Nothing wrong with that! I'm sure there is a way to make your score high but I haven't read about it.
Oh yeah. I get a bit paranoid about it actually and never quite know what I do to make it go up or down. In fact, it seems to penalize me for doing more at times when others seem relatively inactive and have a higher score.
I was told it was because I may have "duplicate content". I find this hard to believe unless they consider product reviews where you mention product numbers and data as "duplication". It's hard to be original with shipping weights!
So yes, a bit addicted and paranoid at times!
Not particularly. I'm more focused on being involved in the community, answering questions and posting quality hubs. The hub score hasn't really affected much...
However, I will say I feel an addiction to checking my pageviews at least twice a day. Must admit I love watching those numbers rise!
I believe most of us are a little "addicted" to checking our hubscore and pageview numbers. We may tell ourselves that they don't matter... that much and we may even believe it when we say so but let those numbers start to slip and............
Are you kidding me? I started with a hubscore of 30 and everyone around had hubscores in 80's and 90's, it did give me a serious complex.
Though I am working on it.
I can't say I don't, but I definately enjoy writing. And when you see others appreciating it.... it feels like the best thing has just happened
Come on! We are human after all....anyone not having even a slight addiction must be a robot or something else!
To tell the truth, despite myself I do. I keep wondering why I have never risen above 93 or 94. I am so desperately and anxiously awaiting the glorious day that I might cross the Rubicon of 95!
Yes, darn it all, despite my better judgment and the fact that I KNOW it has no bearing on the money I can make on here, or my quality as a writer --- I am slightly addicted to my hub score.
For the first week or so, my hub score was an enigma wrapped in a cliche on the top shelf of the "Things I'll Never Understand" section of the overused expressions store.
Then it started climbing, and as it did so did the score for my only hub thus far, and I was content that this was one of those things beyond my puny comprehension and as long as it drifted upward all was right in the universe.
If it drops below 50, however, "slight addiction" might be an understatement as I scramble to raise it.
I do completely! The hub score seems to fluctuate so often and we all know that we need to be above a 75 for our backlinks to turn to do follow. It seems I am constantly looking at my score and trying to increase it.
Absolutely! I feel like a crack addict, because I check it several times a day and page views as well. Does this mean we have no life?

Does anyone else's hub score seem to go down if you ask and answer questionsI answered a good few questions a while back and my hub score dropped has this happened to anyone else. Or does anyone know the reason.

From past experience and from most of what I have read it is uncommon for hub scores to go up on a weekend. Please let me know your experience with this.
