Hmmm, made a couple of very minor edits on my highest scoring hub. I think I moved an Amazon capsule and maybe changed a word or two. A day or two later now, I just noticed the hub score went from the low 90s to 79. So, are the scoring standards changing or is it just arbitrary depending on who does the scoring?
Your post caused me to check my one and only hub I updated today. Yep, damn thing knocked down 10 points.
Well, as for me, I went through this one time and I do not feel like it (mentally) to do this all over again. I am going to stay in my cave and write. That way, no shrapnel can hit me.
So should I be looking at hub scores? I never do. I just look to see whether or not my hubs are featured and if they're getting views. I thought that like our hubber scores, hub scores are assigned by some mysterious and wonky alogrithm that is meaningless. Should I concern myself with hub scores?
yes, I just asked a question right after you did or I wouldnt have asked it! My scores are in the low 70s and quite a few in the 60s...getting depressed! All the work and I have never had such low hub scores..Still lot's of page views and comments, doesn't seem to matter. Google still recognizing on first page first position on some hubs I've had for a while..those scores used to be 98, now they are 71
These comments are very disturbing. People should not be frightened to upgrade their hubs. Time for HP to fix this problem and to fix hubber score as well.
Totally agree. And along with all the other detriments, it takes the joy out of everything.
Well, I must say, that a lot of time goes into publishing these articles. I am not the best writer by no means, but I do put a lot of thought and time into what I am writing. It does seem that my scores have plummeted and it makes me frown when I log into my hubs and see the low scores that I so try to keep up . It almost feels like a slap in the face. I am not complaining by no means, but it does sting a little.

My Hub "People Almost Met: Lily at the Pool" recently had a hub score of 100 and stayed at the level for about two weeks. Now it is in the 60's. It has lots of comments and about average views (for my hubs). Anyone know what I can do about this?

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...

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 don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me and compelled me to ask this question. I know we'd all like to be able to create...

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...
