I will never understand the overall hubber score. I have a lower score with 9 featured hubs drawing decent traffic from google than a guy who wants to publish how to hack facebook ads.
I suspect that voodoo is involved. Or some sort of ritual in which random darts are thrown at a wall covered in numbers, and whatever digits they hit make up your Hubber score.
Other than that, I don't understand it either.
It's not worth fretting over. So long as your Hubber score is 65 + everything is ok. Traffick from google and earnings is all that matters.You are probably beating me on that score. If so I would be happy to swap that and exchange our hubber scores.
I think you need to have a score of 75 (not 65) in order not to have any links within your hubs marked as 'no follow', other than that (as you probably know) hub scores and hubber scores actually mean very little and are certainly nothing any hubber should lose sleep over.
Maybe you lose a point for every time you try to publicly point out a hubber you are better than.
Traffic really is the biggest factor behind everything. If you don't like your scores, or earnings... Work on getting more traffic.
Traffic? I don't think I have a ton of traffic but have a decent hubber score atm. I'm wondering if it now isn't more about QAP. I see a difference when I publish a hub I know will draw a high QAP vs. one I think will probably be only an 8.
JMO though. I'm still very confused by most of the stats and concepts relating to on-line publishing.
Regardless Jericho, you have one of my dogs' name, so you must be cool.
It's not meant to be understood.
If everyone understood, we would all be at a hundred.
In general, if you work at making improvements in your hubs and your interactions, you score will tend to go up. It's a waste of time to think about it too much.
I snuck into the HP main server again...
Here's the profile score algorithm.
As you can see, your traffic and the color of your avatar are the main contributing factors. Not fair, but that's the way it is...
I thought it had to do with musical ability...
Actually, you are right. I accidently divided by zero on the second line, thus causing me to make a false conclusion about traffic.
I found the exact formula:
125 + Age + IQ - Height in Inches - Weight in pounds
If this number is greater than 100 then you are given 100.
Therefore old short skinny geniuses always score 100.
The cool thing - I'm losing weight at the moment so my score is getting higher!!!!
I think you are on to something SimeyC.
Today I'm an old short skinny genius! Wonder what I will be tomorrow?
Rats. I ate gelato at Whole Foods yesterday. It will take a few weeks to overcome the hit to my score.
I'm tall and heavy...
But I'm old... so that helps.
My traffic has gone up and my score has gone down so I don't think it has anything to do with traffic. It's a mystery we're going to have to live with.
I think at formula is incomplete, having squirrelly eyes and bad breath is also a factor.

Hubber scores do not reflect anything but some weird algorithm that is not in sync with anything. My score just went sixteen points down. My views are up and I am featured way more that 140 times.But what I noticed was...

I am looking for 5 things that will increase my hubber score.Assume there are enough articles to manipulate and about 200 featured but a ton "less than". The hubber does not network and just wants to raise the...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...

I was sitting pretty at a 95 for a while. I really liked that number. Suddenly it jumped to 97.Call me crazy but I like that it went higher - kind of - sort of - but you see... Now I want to KEEP...
