It has been a few years since I've been on HubPages. Wow! It has changed.
Years ago, people could post just about anything, click publish and that was about it. The rules have become much more strict, and now it looks like HubPages stresses quality over quantity. I love the changes, but want to be sure I'm getting the full benefits, so I have a couple of questions about the Hub Score and Hubber Score.
I saw in the Q&A page that, "An external link (not hubpages.com) will have a nofollow tag if at least one of the following is true:
-Your HubberScore is below 85
-The link is in a Hub that has a HubScore below 40"
Is it possible to reach these scores after your first high-quality Hub, or do newbies have to publish a few Hubs before it becomes realistic to reach these scores.
Also, what if you get away from publishing new Hubs for a few months? Do your scores automatically drop?
Thanks All, I'm looking forward to joining the Hub community.
Yes, a person has to publish a few Hubs before the scores will go up to that level. Exactly how many, I can't remember; it's been awhile since I've been new. I do think it is more than a few to get that score up. I'd make a wild guess at 10 Hubs.
Once it gets to a certain score, my experience has been that not writing for awhile does not lower the score. I've spent several months not writing and Hubber score and Hub scores have hovered around the same number the whole time.
I have not written on Hubpages for almost 6 years. With the passing of mom at that time, I really could not focus on writing. Thank you for the informative information. Is there anything else, some of us old newbies need to be updated about?
One quick follow-up question. Do the "no follow" links in my first 10 or so articles get changed to "do follow" after I reach the high scores?
My experience is don't worry so much about hub scores. In the big scheme of things, it means very little.
Focus on quality of content and images and relevant hub title will get you far. Minimum of about 3 text modules, 3 photos and about 300 well written words will usually get your hub featured. Good luck.

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

I was sitting pretty at a 95 for a while. I really liked that number. Suddenly it jumped to 97.Call me crazy but I like that it went higher - kind of - sort of - but you see... Now I want to KEEP it.I'm kind of possessive that way. I see a bunch of people with 100 hubber...

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...

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

Who thinks we should ask to reinstate a page dedicated to locating hubbers by hubber score. Beginning with 100-0.We once had such a page here that made the hubber score much more relevant, and we could at least get a chance to locate the top hubbers who most definitely deserved high praise for...
