Radical changes in hub scores.

    For the last month I have been seeing some radical scoring on my hubs. Just looking at two hubs to check stats I found that a poem, which was scored at 59 less than a week ago jumped up to 71. A creative piece that I did just for wacky fun had a low score (low 70s) since I published it - has suddenly jumped to 93. I have not edited either hub since I published them. Last crawl by Google on the poem was six hours ago, but the score was at 71 days before the crawl. Last crawl by Google on the wacky creative piece was three weeks ago, but the hub just jumped to 93 today.

    What is going on with these radical changes? They are not slowly creeping up or down, but jumping several points. As I said, I only checked the two hubs. Could this be a technical problem - or should I post this in another forum?

      Yes, Phyllis. Seems we are all having problems. With me they are certainly very inconsistent. I would be very happy if your piece about the Woven Tapestry had gone to 93, though. Even more!. It's a brilliant piece of work!

        That is very kind of you to say about Woven Tapestry, Manatita. Thank you.

        Usually I am not too concerned about my hub scores - I write, I publish, then I let it be so I can go on to another piece of writing. This inconsistency in scoring, though, has just really made me wonder what is going on. It seems like every day my whole list of hubs has been switched around as if someone is playing chess with them. Funny and curious thing it is.

          I have been watching this going on in my stats for some time. I try to edit what I can but I do not delete any , I just leave them. I do not worry about it, I just wait for (good) surprises. I think that it has to do with Google and views (I check Google Analytics occasionally).

            Hi Kevin. I am not editing any hubs lately because a hub could be scored way low then jump, for no reason I see, several points the next day. I am not complaining about low scores or unfeatured hubs. I have 166 hubs, all featured.

            I am just plain curious why the hub scores change so radically when I have done no editing and see no up or down arrows on them. I am not worried about the scores, just find it odd that my list changes every day and there is no consistency. It is like one of Frank's hubs on mystery where there are no obvious clues.

              I had a poem Phyllis very low for weeks which I could not edit in any way, suddenly it jumped higher.

    I've noticed a drop in my highest rating hubs that have held a consistent score of 100. I don't know what's going on.  I'm hoping it's a glitch.

      All my hub scores have been pretty consistent till recently. I don't mind some of them going up - but, I sure don't understand why they jump by so many points at once.

    I am baffled Phyllis. I have had one hub that was 88 a few weeks ago drop to my lowest scoring hub 53, and another that I haven't altered has gone up from 70 to 88.

      Me, too, Jodah - it is making no sense to me. At least now I see I am not the only one experiencing this.
