My HubScores have been strong and steady all year until suddenly plunging about a week ago. Traffic to them has dropped at the same time, even after another drop the month before as a result of the Google update.
I have done everything possible to follow the guidelines for writing good Hubs. Most of them are more than 1,000 words long with multiple photos, polls, etc.
Is anyone else experiencing the same thing?
Since 9/25, my earnings and traffic have fallen every week. And I was doing very well beforehand.
Have your HubScores dropped or remained the same?
You mean the one score on me? It has stayed the same. To tell you the truth I don't care about the scores..I care about the money!
Don't pay attention to hubscores, they always fluctuate. The hiubcore god or goddess simlply wakes up and says" Let all hubscore fall" or "let some hubcore rise"
I have observed that when the traffic on a Hub drops, so does the score. And many, if not most of us, have seen the traffic fall by 50% over the last couple of months. Therefore I don't concern myself with having a high number on a particular Hub. Only that the score is high enough as to be a "Featured Hub".
It's a puzzle no one yet has worked out! Hubs of mine with decent traffic have lower hub scores, whilst my highest scoring hub (97 at present) gets hardly a view. Yes, I took a big hit when the update kicked in but am slowly recovering. It'll take a long time before I'm earning as much as i did before the Panda struck. A pain but I'm digging in, updating some hubs and creating new ones. I plan to have a review in 3 months time - I may ave to make a big decision!

To those with decreased hubscores as a result of the new hubscore updates, has this eventmotivated or demotivated you from writing hubs? Has the new hubscore updates making you reconsider staying at HubPages or simply giving up and moving on?

Is it me or have the Hub scores been fluctuating more drastically the last week or so?

Every hub that I have posted has had the hubscore drop significantly today. One hub lost 10 points and they have all lost at least 2 points. Why would all my hubs drop so significantly at the same time? My hub visits have also dropped significantly since Friday.

I would like a better explanation of the Hub Score. I have a Hub that I uploaded on May 12th, it's ranked #2 on Google search results for its main keyword phrase, it's getting 175 visits per day sent by Google, but the Hub Score is only 78. Is that because someone at MTurk didn't like...

Which way do you think your Hubscores will go with the NEW change to the Hubscore algorithm? See "An Update to HubScore" http://blog.hubpages.com/2015/02/26/an- … -hubscore/Note that the revision will:* deemphasise traffic - from all sources* put more of an emphasis on quality as...

This is another gripe, just trying to understand things better. It has never happened before in the 13 months I have been here. I published a hub yesterday in the morning at 70 points. When I woke this morning it was 80 and has been falling since.I have never had hub do that. It usually starts...
