    This month has been a really great month for me. My Hub views have been at 500% views each week, averaging 200-300 views a day. My actual score has went from 90 to 80 in that time. I know there is no correlation between the score and the content, but it still agitates me lol.

      I guess it is not "Hub score" it would be profile score? I don't know.

      When I had 6 featured hubs my hubber score was 90.
      After adding 6 more hubs, my score matches yours at 80, Fred.

      Its kind of rewarding seeing it rise, and kind of disappointing seeing it drop.
      I don't know.

        So true. I've been more active in the forums as well as adding Hubs once or twice a week with a superb rise in traffic, yet I'm at 80. Then I see the people who have nothing but recipes with a 100 and I cry! No offense to anyone who does so, I just put a lot of effort into massive research and time investment, and getting beat out by 600 word recipe Hubs makes me a little crazy.

        I digress. Time for lunch!

      Hi Fred,

      Your HubberScore can fluctuate based on a number of factors including the the aggregate quality of your Hubs, traffic to your Hubs, your activity on HubPages (including the Forums, comments on Hubs, Q&A, etc), and others.

      Congrats on your traffic increase!

        So when my traffic has increased by 400% weekly, my average score for my hubs has went from 72 to 76, and I've been extremely active on the forums it fell from 90 to 80. While I was taking a break due to school/work obligations my score stayed at a 90! This is also at a point in time where I'm producing 1-2 Hubs a week! I will never understand your algorithms!

        I also appreciate the comment from a Hubpage Staff member!

          There's certainly room for improvement, and in general, if your individual Hub Scores are good, it's a pretty good indication that you're doing well. HubberScore is meant to be a general guideline, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. smile

    Hub scores today have gone down for several of my hubs as well. Time to edit. A few though are seasonal hubs so it is expected.

      I meant my profile score haha. My Hubs stay relatively the same, and I edit each one everyday. It's just weird. I haven't changed how I conducted my Hubpages so why is my profile score going down now?! When I'm getting more traffic to boot! Whatever, Hubpages smile

        Yes, Fred Arnold, it is frustrating to see hubberscore drop but it's to be expected if you just wrote a new hub or if you've been editing hubs. Also, HP is doing a lot of updating of QAP, algorithms, and basic changes in criteria for featuring hubs. The site is going through a lot of changes and I think that may also affect some of our scores across the board. It's a combo of things. Your hubberscore will rise again. smile

          Jan is right - my score was higher late last year, and in a fit of boredom or something, I editing hubs (improved them, updated them, all good - right?) and my score dropped a few points.  Makes me crazy. 

          But - as Jan says, it will rise again.

            I noticed that hubs core for those I edited dropped so sometimes, I just leave hubs where they are.

              Sounds like the trick is not to update hubs unless needed. 
              I did update hubs recently.

          I have difficulty interpreting my score as well, even though I am relatively new to hub pages and have 2 hubs to my credit thus far, I have noticed a lot of fluctuation in my score as well. This does not seem to correlate with the traffic to my page. I was not aware of the strategy of regular editing of hubs causing an impact on their scores.

          Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't know that happened. I had an editing spree last night on all of my hubs, taking out some of the less relevant Amazon capsules. My hub score has dropped since, as have the scores of each article, although some have gone up! I really don't understand it. I won't pay too much attention as I'm happy with the content of what I write, and get plenty of views.

    I don't think there's a straightforward answer to your question! The hubber score goes up and down -but it's not like a barometer reflecting the 'weather' on your domain - it somehow reflects your participation on the site. So the more you comment, interact, write, forumise etc etc the higher your score should be. In theory.
    To be frank, I shouldn't worry too much about it. If you continue to write good quality articles and do your fair share of interacting you will be just fine.

    Mine has been dropping as well. I'll only freak if it drops below 85 and Hubpages starts telling Google all my .gov links are now spam.
