All of my hubs that I have submitted are 'featured'. I've just submitted another and my Hubber score has dropped. This is the second time this has happened. Crazy!
HubberScore largely reflects the HubScores of an author's Hubs.

It's really a sad commentary on your evaluation system that a Hub which gets over 125 views a day sent from search engines is rated at 67, a Hub with over 125,000 views in a single month is rated as 71, and a Hub with not a single view today has a score of 88. Your system is flawed and it discourages Hubbers who know how to please Google from posting new content on this site. Every time I publish a new Hub my score drops – down 6 points in the last two weeks. Your Hub Score and Hubber Score system is not just meaningless as others state; it is often just a huge slap in the face.
I agree - hubber score is seriously flawed and erroneous.
HP know this, but refuses to fix it.
HP telling people to ignore it is silly.
It is important for authors.
Despite all the complaints - sadly - nothing is done to fix it.
I simply don't understand why.
Umm ... this is abit of a retraction, my hubber score is back to the same number I had before. Curious.
The score does that when you publish new Hubs because they are being rated. After they all have been through the QAP and are all featured and all has settled once again, then your score will change again.
Don't worry, the Hubber score will always fluctuate, and if you publish new hubs, it will most certainly go down for a while. If the hub(s) you publish achieve a bigger hub score within a shorter period of time, the Hubber score will also go back sooner.
For example, I've published quite a few hubs lately, so my Hubber score went down to 97 from 100, but it will go back within a few days again, hopefully .
my hubber score is like a woman with neverending menopoause. i can never predict it.
Same here, for months I don't write any hubs and my hubber score sits around 95, then recently I published two featured hubs and my hubber score drops to 92. I gave up trying to figure it out a long time ago.
I think they might be going by the average of a certain period in giving the score. If some hubs are rated 100 score and others 80 or 90 then taking the average it can be anywhere between 85 to 90. And some points might be there for your active participation in forums and question, answers or commenting.
Having your score drop as a result of publishing a new hub is normal. First of all the new hub is going to fluctuate for the first little while, making your score bounce around a bit. Second, it may be rated lower than the sum total average of the rest of your hubs, which would cause your score to drop. You have to consistently meet or beat your average hub score with each new hub you write to prevent your overall score from dropping.
If hubber score goes down for low hub traffic, you can't do much about it. The only recourse is to tweak hubs by editing, adding more photos, a poll, or video, changing title, As your total hub score rises, the hubber score should rise. Matthew indicates this in his comment. Then add in activity on site.
Part of the reason my score is so low is that I don't often participate in forums like this. I happen to have many accounts on other forums… I can't be on here 24/7.
i have average hub scores about 85 but my bubber score is always around 65.
Do you participate often in forums, Q&A, comments - in other words in the community?
I think it is enough if you participate daily in forums and Q&A, commenting, etc. for even a 30 minute span which can be of much help to grow your hubber score.
Starting to hook up with folks in the community. Been abit busy lately.
As having some time passed over here, I have come to know that the hubber score mainly depends upon the traffic and the number of your featured hubs. Suppose, you are having 10 featured hubs with 90 score and 100 visitors read your hubs. If you publish a new hub, the visitors don't increase with the increase in the number of hubs. The number of hubs has been increased, but the traffic is still the same.That's why; you hubber score drops immediately. After some time, when the traffic goes on increasing, your hubber score also gets increased. That's what I think about a hubber score. Try to increase your traffic and then see the difference.
I agree with some of the comments about the scoring system being flawed. I actually have a couple of hubs which are 'not featured' but are scored higher than a few which are featured.
Also 1 hub was not published stating that the content wasn't good enough, I couldn't work it out as I had good content and as soon as I added a silly picture the score went up and was deem 'featured!'
I think your algorithms need tweeting.
I think, a hub should contain as many capsules as are necessary for making it a complete hub. For example the text capsules, photo capsule, video capsule, table capsule, like that. So, if any one capsule is missing, the score may be lesser. But videos may not be possible for all hubbers as they require a person for capturing the video. All other capsules can be easily included by you.

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...

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!

Hi ya'll. I'm a newbie and am wondering what hub scores ranging from 47 to 56 mean? What is a "good" hub score and how does that impact things?Thanks so much!!!

It has been a few years since I've been on HubPages. Wow! It has changed. Years ago, people could post just about anything, click publish and that was about it. The rules have become much more strict, and now it looks like HubPages stresses quality over quantity. I love the changes, but want to be...

I just happened to notice that somebody asked me a question about increasing their score weeks ago and I missed it - careless inattention as usual.I gave an honest answer - which is to say that I don't have a clue. My score goes up, my score goes down and I never know why.What I DID get...
