I just want someone to tell me why I have a pathetic hubber score of 63...
3 years... You are correct in your inquiry, Get rid of the sex? Not fair. But what is?
After seeing how many follow you, I wouldn't care about the score...your obviously a very popular writer:)
I see you unfollowed a ton of people as I suggested before, so depending on how recently you did that, it might take a while for the score to rise. I don't think that alone will put you into the 80s though. It's truly weird, dude.
It's constantly fluctuates. Some days mine is in the 70's and some days it's in the 80's. your hubs are good, so probably not much to worry about.
Does anyone else have any suggestions to me about what is wrong with my HubPages to be lowering my hubber score so dramatically?
Hubber scores are a mystery to me, but they don't seem to be all about your hubs. I think the average hub score is relevant. Using the hub hopper, ( I still prefer the classic version,) does appear to raise your score. Make sure you rate what you read. I skip a lot that are of no personal interest. Answer a couple of questions every day or so, it doesn't take long. And use the forums a bit, as you do already. Seems to me we're "rewarded" for using HP, spending some time here, by the score rising. Sometimes I look at my score and think, oops, better go and do something else!
Maybe you should stop 'sacking' us !
like follow someone then when they follow you you say bye,bye,
not very nice ,
jandee sorry if I am mistaken but that is how it looks
Hi Jandee, I wouldn't take it personally. NotPC is just trying to raise his hubber score. Whenever someone goes on a "following spree" and follows tons of writers in a short period of time, it seems to lower their hubber score. NotPC was advised to unfollow a bunch of hubbers in an attempt to raise his score. I don't think he was trying to pull any tricks.
Hi Not PC,
Sometimes I think my score is abnormally low too. It seems to help if you hub hop, and go on the forums a little more. Of course, they can get controversial, so pick one that won't get you in trouble. Otherwise I can't explain it either. I've also had a big jump from asking a question of other hubbers, but again, if it's political or religious, it can be more aggravation than it's worth. You aren't responsible for where the thread goes though, so start a few and don't post after the initial question. All those things should get you out of the dreaded "under 75" range. Did you start taking off your RSS feeds? My scores took a big dive even though I just took off a few a week. Check those out. Best wishes.
I had similar problem with me but when I started Indulging in forums, answers and hub comments, I was up!
I can understand why you want to get above 75, but it's otherwise not that important if you ask me. You could try taking part in the "Answers" section of HubPages. It made my score rise a bit when I answered a few questions. Commenting on hubs and helping out with the Hub Hopper thing could also help. That's what I would do if I was under 75.
I've noticed that my score goes down when I get lazy and don't approve comments and reply to them. I don't know why I tend to put that off, but when I finally get to it, my score usually goes up.
It could be that the score has a lot to do with participation in the HubPages community, and replying to comments counts as participation. Not that I reply to comments, but if you ask me, the score isn't worth worrying about as long as it's above 75.
Definitely agree. I can't figure out why NotPC is in the 60s, though.
Sounds like it could be a "following spree" that caused it. Even if Not PC followed it up with an "unfollow spree", it could be necessary to let the dust settle before the score rises again. In the meantime, I'd participate a bit more in the community if I was him or her.
Kingkos, hello I see you have written many,many comments and soon I am sure you will start to write hubs,maybe about your dogs ! I look forward to reading when you decide to write,
best from jandee
NotPC, I looked at your some of your hubs and your page. May I suggest that you redo your brand (profile and avatar) but stay true to yourself and the identity you've built? After 3 years, maybe you need a fresh start. I think it might be tripping off some type of algorithm alerts but I don't know what (???). Also, some of your hub topics have heavy content, chockfull of text and long sentences. Try breaking up your text/paragraphs by using more capsules and breaking up sentences that are longer than two or three lines into two sentences. Use some right-aligned capsules to highlight/illustrate your main points. That will help to break up the text as well.
Hub hop. Write on questions and forums and the score should go up.
Definitely hub hopper! Comments and forum discussions, as well. Good luck!

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 efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

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 reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...
