I'm a little confused, before I went to bed last night I checked my hubscore and it was at 92, today it's at 87...what would cause such a big jump in such a short period of time??
I wish I had a good answer for you. I've been here almost four years and I have yet to figure it out. It's very similar to the stock market that way. Don't sweat the small stuff. Concentrate on your writing.
After a Hub is evaluated by the QAP, the HubScore can take some time to adjust and land on the final value.
Don't let yourself get caught up in the scoring. Why? You have different individuals who review your hub and it is human versus human. Some individuals without meaning to will for some reason see the written hub a lot differently than you do. It doesn't matter how much passion, thought, research or work you put into it. Believe in your own work and yourself. That will help you ignore the score. I believe the scoring is based upon traffic also. There are a lot of factors that make up the score.
With that said, my score is no where near what I think it should be, simply because I write my own stuff, I am sincere, I do not put into print bogus stuff and I try hard. I think I have come a long way from when I first started, learned a lot and gradually have gotten better. Writing skills do not come all that easy for those that are not writing scholars. We learn by doing. I can't come here everyday to write because I have other work online to include 2 websites, several blogs, etc. Also, I was away for awhile and due to me being away, I made no money. So what happened, my hubs were still online but not promoted, I guess.
I do not comment as much as I need to, but as said, I can't get everything that I would love to do. I believe in praising others and trying to help everyone feel good about their work.
Keep up the good work, write, write and focus, then with time and effort you will rise to their expectations and yours.
When I see my score drop, I often find that one or two articles have had their status changed to 'Not Featured'. For story type articles, I may edit to increase readability. For informational or current event type articles, I will usually add an update to the bring the information more up-to-date.
Caveat: This is my approach. There are many out there who do better with respect to the scoring system.
That's quite a drop though, I usually experience a 1-2 point drop at most. Hopefully it all evens out though.
I have found that changes in hubberscore have less to do with your individual activity and more to do with overall site activity: newly published hubs in a category where you have hubs, how those hubs are QAPed compared to yours; changes in HP algorithms/hub tool requirements and standards for hubs, and last but not least . . . the position of the moon.
Don't fret, Kelsey. Yes, it's frustrating and mind-boggling, but it may have nothing to do with any one thing. Most of the time we don't have any control over it. I have noticed now that mine fluctuates like clockwork, without my doing anything at all. I can almost predict when it will hit a certain number to the day.
One thing I know for sure is that it will go back up once I write more quality hubs. I'll get around to it. But in the meantime, I won't fret as much anymore.
I have been noticing my score move up and down more so over the last two weeks. It has been fluctuating between 92 and 89 almost on a daily basis. I have given up worrying about or trying to understand it.
Thanks for everyone's words. I notice that mine usually fluctuates within a 2 point range, so a 5 point was just nuts to me in less than 24 hours. I guess I should've mentioned that some how 80% of my hubs' individual scores went from high 80's to low 70's within that time too. I don't know what's going on. It seems like they changed an algorithm or something because that doesn't make sense to me.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

Hubber scores do not reflect anything but some weird algorithm that is not in sync with anything. My score just went sixteen points down. My views are up and I am featured way more that 140 times.But what I noticed was Billybuc. He is an 88. What? He is the highest ranking site at Hub pages. This...

Has anyone else noticed their HubScore drop since starting the Hub Challenge? I know it goes up and down based on traffic, so you'd think with publishing more Hubs, it would go up, right? Weird.

Has anyone noticed a marked change in their hub scores? I only noticed today so not sure if it happened today or in the recent past.. But some of my hubs have seen a marked increase from 70's and 80's into the 90's and even a 100...Is anyone else seeing a real change?

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 efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...
