Ok, I just went and checked, my hub has 2,250 words... that's pretty good for me, 'cause I like 'em shorter, but I guess I had a lot to say. No spelling errors, so hopefully it will be published and then I will be at a 99 for sure! 100 if I hub hop!
Sed-me- Keep your head up! HP is notorious for NOT being reactive. By that I mean, whatever you do; write a new Hub, delete an old one, rewrite a poorly performing one, whatever, HP will not indicate any sustained reaction for days. And your hubber score? Picture three Voodoo witches dancing around a fire, chanting with your Hubs in one hand, and a large Doobie in the other, making changes to your score. DON
Like few months ago I had a score of 86 but most of my hubs were old and not featured. Had only 19 featured out of 72 hubs.
Then I decided to edit and improve a lot of them. I managed to improve around 30-40 hubs, add videos, more images, format them nicer... Yesterday got a badge of 50 featured hubs but my score now is 79
My average hub score was 62, today it is 67. One not featured was with a score of 84 for a long time. I wanted to make it even nicer and just added couple of images, videos and some small changes. It felt down to 65
Recent month I even comment on forums, had few best answers, followed some people etc... But still nothing, it even drops!
When I published new hub and it got score of 83 I felt from 81 to 79. I suppose when I improve all the hubs and fix a lot of things I will have hubber score of 50
edit: So do not give up! Let's compete who will improve their hubs faster and reach the magic hubber score of 50 first!
Lol, No! Don't say that. I am ashamed to admit it, but HP has so much power over me. The more my score drops, the more bummed out I get. Before they made those changes, my scores were in the 90's and even 100 a few times... and the funny thing is, the score meant nothing to me. I really didn't care. But when it took a nosedive, all of a sudden, it became important to me. Grrrr. So unfair. lol
I added a hub today... it had like 1200 or 2000 words.. can't remember, but right after I published it, my score dropped another point. WHAT DO THEY WANT, BLOOD? (Cause I can give it... just tell me where to send it.)
Edit: I just went up a point. So it's blood you want eh? I think I'm A+. Im anemic. I hope that doesn't knock my score down, but it's yours if you want it. I just need a few drops and I'll be fine.
What?! They were all published... am I saying that wrong? I can't remember all of a sudden. Ok, off topic, but I started this thread so the OP is ok with it...
I used to think it was "All of the sudden." I guess I had heard it wrong my whole life... IDK. Then one of my English friends called me on it. I was like, "What? You're mental!" (I picked up a few words...) So he showed me online and sure enough, it's "All of a sudden." So when I can't remember which one it is, I pick the one that sounds wrong and use that one. His name was Darren, he lives in London. Surely you know him? Darren in London? (Oh, you're from CA. never mind. My uncle lives in CA. Butch? Do you know Butch in CA?)
Good ol' Butch. And good ol' Darren. Yes, I know those guys! We hang out all the time, have a few Pepsi Cola sodas, sit around the fire, cook beans, eat corn, talk about....oops! All of the sudden I got a call. Be right back.
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...
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...
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...
I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...
