Hub score dragging Hubster score down?

    Hi this is a quicky but wanting to poll opinion here. I still feel a bit of a noob when it comes to Hubpages so advice would be good. If say, you had 10 good performing Hubs that's obviously going to have a positive effect on your Hubster score. But let's say you also had a further 10 hubs that scored above 50 but pretty average non the less, would they have an adverse effect on your overall score and dilute the effectiveness of your good hubs to keep your Hubster score above 75? And what if you had say, 20 medocre hubs versus 10 good scoring hubs - would that be even worse?

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks.

      Your Hubber score reflects the quality of all your Hubs - so basically, the more low quality Hubs you have, the more points you'll lose off your Hubber score.  However, Hubber score is influenced by several things including your activity on the site, so no one can give you a precise answer.

        thanks for your reply. I've managed to achieve a Hubster score of 75 for one day in the last year. I've got 15 hubs so not sure whether to scrap one or two of them which aren't featured and scoring in the 50's / 60's

          If a Hub is not Featured, it's invisible to the search engines and therefore has no earnings potential whatsoever.  So they're not benefiting you, and you should either add some more content to them - which may bring them out of idle - or move them to another site.

    I have noticed that the bold mean (average) score totalling all my hubs remains between 78 and 80. If I add a new hub, the hub scores for each individual hub adjusts to keep my mean score within these limits. That explains why I have a hub in the high 90's one day and the very next day it is in the mid 70's.  I think each hubber is given an average score based on maybe their first few hubs and then each additional hub adjusts to keep that mean score within its limits.

      I'm just trying to fathom why, 17 hubs in and still struggling to get to the magic 75. Most advice I've read suggest I only need to write 10. I'm quite happy to keep writing because that's what I want to do but it seems I either don't write with enoughy regularity (I.e.daily) or something else is dragging me down.

        I read one of your hubs and I think it was well written. I have recently read an article from Google that talks about the importance of keeping your titles brief but concise. I think if you work on shorter titles you might see your score go up. I'm no expert so I'm not sure but you might want to think about it.  I hope this helps.

    thanks, I'll take that I board. I can't decide whether to ditch or improve some of my hubs as some of them aren't that great.

      The one I read was pretty well written and very informative. I think, there's no reason to ditch any of them. It takes too much time to put them all together in the first place. What I do with mine is reread them every now and then and fix something here and there. That gradually brings my score up.

    If you have published hubs in the 50s I would suggest working on improving those hubs. Even very low traffic hubs can score in the 60s if they are a decent length.

      yes, they have changed score a bit. None are currently in the 50's, one hub is 60 the rest are 66 and above. The one that is 60 I heve just taken out an unrelated link out so hoping that might do something there.
