Less than a week ago my hub score was 92. It has steadily been dropping an is 88 as I write this post. I've actually been more active in the last week than ever ... in the forums, hub hoping, reading and commenting on hubs, asking and answering questions. I posted a new hub a couple of days ago and it's doing well. My traffic is rising, I'm getting more followers, I got my Level 1 Commenter status yesterday. I just don't get it.
Jennifer, many hubbers are facing the same problem. Just last week my score was 85, now it has dropped to 81. May be the algorithms of hp are changing just like the algorithm of Google, just keep the content level high and pray to God that it does not drop further ( I am doing the same!)
I'm getting the same problem too. I thought it was because I was inactive for about a week. Hope it doesn't drop any further for all of us! Cheers!
No one gets it. That's the way it's supposed to be.
FORGET about it!
Thanks for your replies. As zanaworld mentioned, I meant to say hubber score.
Mine has done the same thing, only earlier. It was always near 100 and look at it now. It isn't important. At first, I worked to get it higher and now I figure it isn't worth the bother. The score doesn't mean anything anyways.
I could never figure out the Hub score component thing out. My score was around 95 last week, and the last few days it has been at 100. And to be completely honest - I haven't had too much time on my hands, to compose new articles, or comment on fellow writers articles, which I should be doing more consistently. All I have been doing is answering a good number of others questions.
That's basically it! I really can't figure why it would go to 100. Even though I have been at that number several times over the past 2 years. Many other community members say that it really doesn't matter if you have a high, score or not. It's your individual articles and what their content contains, that counts the most. Hope that helps make you feel better about the individual hubber score..
Hubber score fluctuates for no apparent reason sometimes. Bear in mind that every time you publish a new Hub, it will pull your score down, because part of the calculation is based on the average score of all your Hubs. Since new Hubs have a lower score, that pulls the average down.
Thanks for all the replies. I'm really not too worried about it, just quite confused since I've been more active than ever and anticipated it going up if anything, not down. However, Marisa's point about new hubs, which always start with a low hub score, being a factor might be at least part of the reason my hubber score dropped.
Whatever. Thanks again for the replies.
Don't let it bother you too much. One of my hub has a score 91 and it dropped to 77 in less than a week. Traffic is quite consistent. Now it is moving up to the 80s.
I gave up trying to understand how it works.
First of all, please note that Hub Score and Hubber Score are different. I think what we are discussing here is Hubber Score.
No one knows the algorithms behind scoring of Hub Score and Hubber Score. The Algorithms are kept secret. It is better to forget and keep on working on your writing and interacting within Hub communities.
Please refer to below help to understand some pointers on HubScore and Hubber Score!

Well that done clears it up, Bill. Thanks!
That explains a lot. Too much room for one little error to whack the whole thing sideways.
Wow! I didn't know they used Klaatu's formula! ;D
My score ranges from 92 to 98. I don't know what makes it go up and down. I ignore it and keep on doing what I'm doing.
I read their FAQ and it said not to upload a lot of hubs at once even if they are high quality. Maybe your increase in activity was viewed as temporary and hurt your score.
There is no rhyme or reason to Hubber Scores. Mine fluctuates more than penny stocks on the Nigerian Scam Exchange. Lots of activity, no activity, it doesn't seem to matter. I'm guessing that a random number generator is involved.
What!!?? You Actually read the FAQ's ? Congratulations!
Well...skimmed is more appropriate, but as a new poster I needed to know what kind of things they are looking for. It's like tailoring your style to the teacher each semester.
Pay close attention:
Uploading too many Hubs may decrease your score.
Uploading too few Hubs may decrease your score.
Commenting on Forums and Hubs may decrease your score.
Not commenting on Forums and Hubs may decrease your score.
Thinking about your Hubscore may decrease your score.
Ignoring your Hubscore may decrease your score.
Riptides may decrease your score.
Lunar eclipses may decrease your score.
Solar flares may decrease your score.
Seismic activity may decrease your score.
I hope you're writing this down...
Well, the ratings indeed are quite confusing. The best way I have noticed is that just upload high quality content and remain visible to the community. What do you think?
I've noticed that activity and visibility have a lot to do with your author score as well. When I took a week hiatus from here, I also noticed that when I came back, my score had dropped a few points.
My score tends to drop when I get more traffic, and it shot up to 99 when my traffic was down.
That's interesting, Melissa A. You could think it would be the opposite!

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...

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!

In the past four months I have had increasing views, higher CPMs, have been adding articles (and deleting some losers), good Amazon sales...and my Hubber score has dropped from 97 to 91 in the past few weeks! I don't get it...anybody else seeing this problem or can the team explain...

I have most of my hubs in 60 or 70's?Note: I'm sure this was asked before. Should I have looked it up first?
by M. Toni 3 years ago
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...

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 it.I'm kind of possessive that way. I see a bunch of people with 100 hubber...
