Perturbed about your Hubber Score? Perturbed about the unfairness of other Hubber's Hubber score? Perturbed about the unfairness of life? We have it here.
Since I'm the one that started this thread, I get to be club president. If my profile score should ever see 90 again, I'll resign and we will hold elections. Only those who have posted on this thread are eligible for nomination.
Meanwhile, I submit that anyone who has been here several years and has earned serious money for HP deserves a profile score of 90 or better.
Hey there, stranger! I'm not perturbed one bit since I've maintained a score in the 80s and haven't written on HP in years. Things got far to strange for me. I know lots of Hubbers weep, wail, and moan (from The Brave Little Toaster) about the good ole days, and probably get annoyed, but it is true.
My Hubber score is pretty constant, but my contributions have been nil in comparison this year. Once in the 90's over the past year or so settled at 82 - 86. I agree traffic has an impact. I play with it with two theories today from physics. One is Energy and Entropy. The other is Electricity and Ohms Law. So far Ohms law seems most reasonable Just kidding about . . .
Six years ago when I joined Hub Pages my score was 95 -99 , a poet and short story writer . It seemed good enough for H-P then however lately , 50 is about average , So I say no more whining , to H## with hub pages , they're done with me , I'm done with them . I have been un-publishing my hubs watching my score rise and will continue to do so . Joining other creative writing sights . It takes almost as long to un-publish a thousand hubs as it did to write them though , Oh well ! As to Creative writing for Hub Pages , they care nothing for art , merely for repetitious substance writers ..........$
My score was in the 90's couple years ago now (and I left hub for over a year) It languishes at 87...frankly I don't care...when the mood hits me I pop in and write a hub or two...never made a dime here in over 4 years although my hubs score well ...I read work written by those I have followed since joining and feel badly for those losing traffic and $ here... talent is losing to commercialize trash.
I'd like to join the club. I'm convinced traffic directly affects our profile/hubberscore but in a different way. Ever since they changed the algorithm to minimize the impact of high traffic on hubberscore, I've noticed mine decrease whenever traffic increases. It's like clockwork, lasts for a day or so then goes back up.
If this is any consolation, I used to be a mid- to high 90s hubber consistently, even making the 100 Club a few times. Now I just accept it is as is, due to algo changes, tougher QAP, elimination of subdomains, and now, the reorg with the new sites.
I also believe my score is related to not producing any new hubs lately. I agree with you para, hitting anything below 85-90 when you have the same hubs that said you produce "100 hubberscore work" is pretty jarring. Perception is everything, right?
As some of you may have noticed ads show up on articles, the answer section and the forums. Great, the more ads the more that we can possibly earn. But I am still having a problem with the hubber (profile) score. Since...
My Grandmother used to say, "Every frog praises his own pond."I finally got a profile score of 100, and I am proudly exclaiming excitement!!!...it'll be gone tomorrow...or TONIGHT...or the next couple of hours...
