An Interesting Thing Happened

    So I had a couple links on all of my hubpages that could potentially be considered overly promotional. Yesterday, I decided to clean each hub up, add some more in depth details, and take those specific links out. Well I know article/hubscore does not matter much, however I found it interesting that after taking out those links and adding more detail that my hub avg score went from 81 to 77! Since I've been here it has been relatively the same.

    No skin off my back! It was just interesting since I thought I was improving the Hubs! Haha. Has anything interesting happened to you lately? (This can and cannot pertain to hubpages smile )

      Yes, I dissed the hubber score on the forum and mine went down 4 points.
      I am starting a grassroots effort to eliminate the hubber score. I realize speaking out could knock my number down an additional 10 points, but someone must speak out on behalf of all hubbers who have fallen victim to icy hand of The Slasher!

        Haha, Hubpages is watching you! I don't mind the score, however. If anything could be posted and featured it would turn into Bubblews... And no one wants that!

          Senor... you are under the impression your score has to do with your content. I was once under that impression too. Once you learn the hidden and covert plan of The Slasher, you will join me in my revolt. Mark my words. Mark them now!

            And who is this Slasher you are referring to? And I am under the impression that you need a certain score to get featured, therefore, hubs that don't make the criteria, simply, don't get featured.

              The Slasher is the unidentified hand of the person(s) who cut our score down when we get "out of line." And that whole impression thing was a pretty elaborate/detailed impression.

      That has happened to me. Every time I hub hop my hubber score goes down it's annoying.

        Really? I do a lot of hub hopping too. Maybe there's a coincidence here!

    Hi Fred Arnold, from experience I've noticed that sometimes it takes time for the corrected article to stabilize. I've noticed that when I correct an article sometimes it goes up instantly and sometimes it goes down, but I will say that eventually the score evens out, it just takes time. I will say that it is great that you take the time to improve your articles, it shows that you want to present your very best work, and this aspect is what truly counts!

      Good point! Thanks for the insight! And I find it fun thinking about new stuff to add to my hubs. It's funny because I spend a lot of time on here so when it comes to my girlfriend asking me what I'm doing on the computer, it is always this. She finds it funny that most guys play games on the computer and I sit there for hours and scour hubpages lol.

        You are not alone, my friend. We all become addicted at some point, lol. And then it will level off. smile

    Your girlfriend is blessed to have a talented writer by her side! Keep doing your best, it will pay off! I like your profile pic, very cool. Oh, to add one thing,  The originality of your content is a factor to prevent repeat articles, Google is seeking original content. Which will also attract traffic to those who are looking for unique information. A lot of factors come into play regarding your Hubscore. Also providing correct information and being supportive in the community is a factor.
    I find the Google  Analytics Course to be very helpful.

    @ Fred Arnold, Why did it drop if you were improving your article it should have went up, mines drop from 86 to 81 in a day, maybe they are doing an adjustment on Hubpages?  Not sure what's going on??? Anyone know???

    1. Fred Arnold profile image61
      Fred Arnoldposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      I've read stuff where it says that they do it to get people to start tweaking their hubpages. It also depends on traffic, etc. So who knows!

    I am confused.com, so have decided not to think about it too much. It is all so random and my things fluctuate for no reason that I can ascertain...

    I cleaned up some of my hubs by putting full pictures as the first thing in the hub.  After doing that, some of my hubscores went up, but my pageviews went down.  Strange!

      @Treasuresoheaven, that is very interesting the hub score up but views down.  Very interesting wish someone knew what was going on and how all this works, thanks for sharing.  lyns 7192149p

    i think if you have more words and information in your hub, there would be no info saying overly promotional, also try to add pictures and video if possible
