My score had been declining continuously since I tried editing my hubs after being unfeatured for lack of traffic. Any suggestions on this?
Your Hubscore is irrelevant. It is not even worth worrying about. You'd be better served by working on your hubs.
What Sherry said. The ONLY reason score is there:
1. To stop spammers.
2. To stop people posting "dofollow" spam links to their own websites from low quality hubs.
Thanks for the morale booster comment Sherry. This stops me from worrying, but maybe I got to learn something out of this, too.
For the most part, your Hubber score does not matter, but yours is so low, there must be something wrong. I took a look at your activity, since Hubbers sometimes wind up getting their scores dropped if they start following a whole bunch of people. That isn't your problem. So I took a look at one of your hubs - the insurance one. I just scanned it but it seems to be well formatted and well written.
The biggest thing I noticed is that there is an ebay capsule for a wallet. Yes it does use the word insurance "AUTO CAR TRUCK INSURANCE REGISTRATION ID CARD CASE WALLET HOLDER VINYL BLACK " but the topic of your hub is about the different types of insurnce and not about how to hold a card. I wonder if many of your hubs are getting dinged for having spammy content, and as their scores go down, your Hubber score goes down too. In case you missed it, HubPages has been cracking down on ads that are not directly related to the content of the hub. Your books on Amazon seem to be on topic since they are about learning about the types of insurance, but the wallet doesn't seem to be on topic, in my opinion.
I checked your ADHD hub, and there is the same problem - ads for gummy vitamins and supplements that don't have to do with ADHD. There is one ADHD product, but you didn't talk about it in the hub at all. I would recommend taking out the unrelated products, and talking about the ADHD supplement to make it more relevant.
There is a blog post with examples of things that are considered spammy and things that are not. I found it very useful.
You're a great help Millionaire Tips. Thanks for sparing me your time. I've been writing here for a hobby, but you guys do share with me something more valuable...your TIME and concern for others.
You're welcome. I hope you can get your score up above 75. If working on the ads doesn't help, you should contact the team directly. team@ hubpages.com
You gave good info, very helpful for everyone with dropping score.
Could you give more info on this "I wonder if many of your hubs are getting dinged for having spammy content, and as their scores go down, your Hubber score goes down too". Is that correct? If so that would be one of the reasons I have trouble keeping my score up.
You are are great asset to us all, thanks.
Sure Elsie, the HubberScore is created by an algorithm that is changed from time to time. A big part of it has to do with the quality of your hubs. It has a variable factor which changes your score sometimes for no reason to make it harder for you to figure out how to game it. That is why people say not to worry too much about it - it changes for no reason sometimes. While small changes aren't a big deal, I would worry about bigger ones. As long as your score is above 75, which it is, I wouldn't worry. At that point, it is better to shift your focus on traffic and earnings.
The FAQ says this: "HubberScore, on the other hand, is a collective measure of your contribution to the HubPages community (and therefore takes into account the collective quality and success of your Hubs as well as your Questions, Answers, forum participation, comments, etc.)"
Here's the forum post about spammy content. Be sure to also check out the blog post. It has links to several different examples of hubs that are spammy and those which are not.
