My current score is 87.
Watch it happen here.
How? I shall minor edit hubs until it happens.
Following you---as I have been for some time.
That said, I did some revisions to all of my hubs to bring them "in line" with current requirements and for each one got a note indicating that "hubs like this get 300% more traffic" and "great job", etc.
The result: This morning my hubber score is down again---to 87.
I am close to giving up.
And what really annoys me is that others with no featured content or with just 2-3 featured hubs retain hubber scores far in excess of ours.
I just read through this thread, and it looks like you are not even discussing the hubber score anymore, so I do not know if you even want my input.
If I can comment, though...
I edit all the time, and it does not affect my hubber score. I think that editing a few hubs really does not make that big of a difference. A score might go down, but it goes back up in a few days.
As far as traffic goes, I am not sure if you are really concerned or just joking. If you are concerned, I like the suggestion about changing your titles. Some of my most successful hubs are not those with a lot of keywords, just a short title that is to the point. (Five Skinny Dog Breeds, for example. It is only four words. It is not something that is searched for a lot, but Google puts my article near the top.)
I believe you are both right. I have indeed been trimming my titles down as of late. I will continue to do so.
I exceed 5 words for my titles and they are the ones that give me traffic.I don't have as many hubs as PDS but, what I notice is that, my Hub score (author score) jumps up a few ticks whenever I submit a new article. I am concerned about my Hubbie score too, since many of my readers know me personally. It tends to give me more credibility if I am rated higher by HP. I am happy though, with my score of 88 now.
1 hub done. Profile score remains at 87. 1:35 pm, HP time.
2nd hub done. Profile score remains at 87. 1:45 pm, HP time.
3rd hub done. Profile score remains at 87. 1:50 pm, HP time.
4th hub done. Profile score remains at 87. 1:58 pm, HP time.
5th hub done. Profile score remains at 87. 2:04 pm, HP time.
Oh, good. This makes my oldest un-updated hub be April 2014. Fresh content it is.
Well. Now I guess I just sit back and see what happens.
I am down to an 86 this last one week. I am cranking out two articles. I don't know how it will affect my author score. I hope it goes up though!
Don't bother. It won't increase your hubber score.
I published 3 FEATURED hubs in a week thinking that my failure to publish was the problem (and got all kinds of "great hub"; this type of hub gets 300% more traffic, etc. notes) and ramped up my participation in forums, answering questions, etc.
I got BANNED from Hubpages for 2 days AND my hubber score declined.
In fact, I watched my Hubber score DECLINE as my hub scores (that I edited per the rules) went up.
None of this makes any sense.
Wait.. According to HP FAQ and Knowledgebase, for a blog to become no-follow, the hubber score is 85 below and individual hubs 40 below...
You have 87.. I think you are doing fine.
No, the author score below 75 not below 85.
No, the cut-off where your links become no-follow is an author score below 85.
Relache is right. The cutoff score is 85 now. It has become harder to give do follow links.
Okay, so it's been nearly 48 hours, and your score seems to be the same as in the OP. What's the next step in your plan?
I have done absolutely nothing since I joined a few weeks ago... not a single hub and my score is a strong 71 and hasn't budged. You might consider this option if you'd like your score to remain unmoved.
I really do want you to be the real Beth.
This is my second attempt on verification of that.
Please send me the text of the message you sent me in May.
Sorry for the paranoia on my part. But I'm sure you remember all the imposters continually floating around here.
Is May when I left? When you wrote something nice on the forum and I sent you a thank you note? Then I weirdly stumbled on Randy's thread while trying to clear my hubs off of google (as if I knew what I was doing.) And then ppl said mean things, except you... and you tried to sort of keep it above the fray, for which I was appreciative... I wish I had a good soundtrack for this walk down memory lane... Like James Taylor. "If you're down and troubled... and you need a helping hand..." You've got a friend. I was like 5 when that song was on the radio. I have this memory of seeing someone singing that song at a concert, I don't know if it was him or not... I remember his name as being "Jim". But the strange thing is, there was a man in the audience, in a wheelchair who had a hole in the knee of his pants, where something like a thumb (or what a 5 year old imagined to be a thumb) stuck out of the hole. That is the memory. Weird huh? I think I've had too much caffeine. Here's a song for you.
Uhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmm, I don't know. Doesn't sound like Beth. I don't think you're paranoid, para. I hope it's you Beth or that would be super creepy, lol.
Why doesn't it sound like me? lol
What should I say to sound more like me?
So far, the individual in question has been unable to comply with either verification request.
And you are right. The behaviour is disconcerting.
Especially since if they had simply arrived here as a new Hubber in their own right, they would have been more than welcomed here.
Oh, well. I'm not in the world policeman business, so I'm just going to drop the issue.
I've got other challenges/projects in life to deal with.
Indeed very disappointing, as I was just thinking of her the other day and thinking her sentence must be up by now. But the new Sed-me has been alerted that there is a message to find and respond to, but has not done so. And the recollections don't seem to follow mine....
I don't understand. I haven't received any email from you, or any other notification. I can assure you it's me. I have spoken to bBerean from my regular email acct. a time or two since I opened this acct. Anyhoo, don't let it bother you. I'm sure this wont be even a thought in after you're used to my new name.
I have my computer camera blocked with a piece of green tape, so you can't actually see "all" of me. At least, not that I know of.
Yuk, yuk. Just kidding. No, I'm not.
So when you say we can't see "all of you" does that mean you have you taped the top part of the lens or the bottom?
Just the left side. My right side is my best one.
(Now this sounds more like the "real" Beth.) Ahem.
Sweetness - Ahh - I was referring the Para's emails not any from my account. Seems we have to celebrate!!
I know you are just having fun; but Beth really is a good, kind, decent person. Sooner or later, she is going to discover you. And when she does, I think it will deeply hurt her and cause her real emotional pain.
I noticed you got a good first hub there. I hope to see more of the same as the real you.
Meanwhile, I'm still trying to come up with a new hub of my own. So far, doesn't look promising.
LOL... dude! It's one of my old hubs... you told me to change my location status on my profile, you said it didn't have to be exact. So I did... you want me to write you from my reg. email? Ok, will do.
Ok, I have a problem with that. I don't have your email address, and if I write you thru HPs, it will only allow me to write from the email I attached to this account... so I don't know what else to do.
Sending me a reprint of what you said in May would be fine; put it in quotes. Plus any other loving thoughts you care to include.
But I sent it thru HP's and those don't show up in your sent box, you can ask anyone.
I just thanked you for your supportive words on that thread on the forum.
I don't have your email other than thru HPs and that will be my email solely linked to the new acct.
You could always respond to the email I sent and then I could write back, other than that, you're just gonna have to take my word for it.
The reasons you have given in this post and your previous post are valid. You've now got me actually wondering if I have made a grievous error. I'll settle for you just emailing me what your email address was when you sent me that May email.
And I herewith apologize in advance, because I'm pretty sure the answer you send will be the correct one.
I am new here and need help adjusting here. can anyone give me tips and how to get on with posts here. thanks
I was absent during the time Beth37 became famous on HP, so I don't really know her too well. But I thought a post on a thread yesterday about male and female ponytails sounded very much like her. Sed-me has also been posting on religious threads. Maybe it would be easier to ascertain her identity by looking there--whether she's expressing her usual opinions etc. etc.
Maybe try new titles on some of your hubs. Your hubs have great information in them but the titles look a bit keyword stuffed.
For example, instead of "Gophers! How to Get Rid of Pocket Gophers. Gopher Control. Gopher Removal. Mothballs. Moles."
Do something like, "Mole Control: How to Get Rid of Pocket Gophers & Other Backyard Pests"
Just a thought really. Great hubs, just the titles could use a little work.
Hey, Sed-me - I've been wondering where you were hiding - (you're who I think you are, right?). Have missed you!!!!
FYI - the stand-alone term 'Pocket Gopher' made me think of some sort of stuffed animal you'd haul around as a good luck charm or whatever. Or, it might relate to a funny skit often performed at Esther's Follies (the comic place in Austin), called "Pete the Pocket Pal." I won't spoil the fun for anyone. If you're curious, visit Austin & we'll catch the show.
It sounded... like something Google wouldn't want us talking about.
(And thank you! )
Now that is the Beth I've grown to know and love.
Yeah - the "Pete" gag wouldn't fly here. It's amazingly 'okay' in the live venue, though.
BTW - I completely misread the goal of this thread. I thought PD was lamenting the decline of his score to the no-follow level. Let me check a few hubs to see how I can contribute to the goal.
Meanwhile - SO GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN!!!!
Is 87 a no-follow score? I thought it was lower than that?
Hope you get it back up to where it needs to be, Paradigm. You deserve good traffic.
Here to vouch for Sed-Me, who is indeed the artist formerly known as Beth37. I have been in touch all along and can confirm her identity.
Good to see your old avatar, (but I also like the puppy). Now I'm conflicted. See what you've done?
Perhaps he could still visit from time to time. Random cameos.
Interesting that you assumed it was a he... hmmm.
I have a forensic graphics program like the ones on TV that can read match book covers from the reflection on a windshield via a satellite, and perhaps even get a print.
Besides, that's not the same puppy currently displayed. Is this a test?
No, I didn't save the first guys pic... I think there are a few more cute puppies out there I can capitalize on.
It's Beth - she posted her real photo for a blip of a second. I bet she's campaigning for another HubPages T-shirt; she was Forum Queen last year, and the voting time is fast approaching.
She deserves the shirts - we have missed her here!
Thank you Marcy, I missed you all too. It's a lonely web without all you spiders.
I don't think I could handle a 2nd term... the first one seemed to do me in.
I remember one hubber saying I took the title seriously... that made me lol.
I might be accused of a lot of things, but believing I'm the queen of anything, isn't one of them.
Sorry to doubt, missed your presence, glad you're back. With all the spamming, copying, stealing, and negativity it's easy to get caught up. Blessings to you, later gator!
No big deal at all... I don't know why I didn't see this coming, but it's of no consequence at all. Always good to see you Jan.
I think the doubt was brought on when we saw we couldn't trust you with a puppy. I liked the first one.
I hope she avoids the R&P forums this time. I don't want her driven away again.
I love to laugh, more than just about anything on earth, but God's my first love... I gotta speak my mind when I feel the need. But thanks PS.
Stay the course on that, Beth! You're right to speak your mind and heart. And you know we love you!
Aw Marcy... where were you the day Id had enough? lol
Don't ever let it be said that there aren't incredibly nice and generous ppl on this site.
It's full of 'em!
As one lab rat to another, have Him drop me a note sometime. I've sent Him a few messages in the past, but they've all bounced.
It's all about technique and being aware some are gunning for you. It needn't be a game, but since for some it is, you might as well enjoy it. I'm betting Sed-Me is a R&P seasoned vet now.

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...

Just an fyi for someone I noticed (and who will remain nameless). And for any other newer folks who didn't know.
by SpaceShanty3 years ago
I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?
by Person of Interest3 years ago
I guess my hub-updating days are over... My profile score can't stand any further drops, that no-follow links thing ya know... Oh, well.
by Kmadhav7 years ago
I deleted my few hubs by showing some duplicate content. Is there any negative effect on my Hub profile score. How I can Increase the HUB Profile score .....
by DellNixon6 years ago
