For example, I have a high-traffic hub with a low score, and then other thoroughly researched articles, with graphs and everything else, but which do not necessarily have high traffic, but which may share a similar score (as the high traffic hub). I see that some hubbers have high scores, even though their hubs contain little factual information. Does anyone else find this strange? Seriously, I do not understand the scoring system at all. Does anyone understand it?
sort by best latest
Paula, It may be the down arrows (like Brad said) & people writing in to complain about me when I call them out for lying. Maybe HP doesn't check and they just down arrow the hubber score. But then there is still the hub score. Weird. I shouldn't
Thanks so much for choosing my answer....Now, girlfriend, is there anyone you can convince to take care of my sad profile score?? LOL
I read one if your hubs yesterday on having writers block.....a different matter from HP scoring. I'll check out the links. Thanks Tim. Great answer. BTW, I like the borderline personality title.
That title would be a satirical article. I will ponder as I think more on writing a related article. Thanks for visiting and commenting that Hub. I saw and replied to the comment.
I should do the same. Ha!
Right?? I've read some articles that are all over the place and which do not even contain one shred of truth---no polls, graphs, nothing, and I'm thinking to myself, "How did they get that score?" I guess it's just one of those mysteries of life. Lol
Jodah, that matches my experience as well, though half my hubs are in the 80's. But I had a score of 90+ like you. Now, it keeps getting lower. In your case, it has nothing to do with down votes. Maybe those with high scores just have more traffic.
Ha! It's just annoying when I fix a hub and it goes up 8 points, only to come down again in a few days, even if readership is up. The whole thing is crazy!! Thanks for commenting, Teri.
I think you've got their number, John. I personally feel that we are "not to know." I see too much inconsistency & I don't appreciate it. But...life isn't fair. Sometimes I resent that. Oh, well...
