    Why does my score drop one point just because I logged in??????? It happens every time. So maybe I'll just quit logging in and my score will stay at 83. Since google only recognizes hubbers with scores of 83 or higher!

      I always understood it as the threshold being 75. I wouldn't worry much about fluctuations I don't.

      Yeah, don't worry about it...mine fluctuates continuously by 3 to 4 points. The more you read other hubs and leave in depth comments, as well as, making any improvements to your articles, the higher your score will go.

      I don't know where you got the idea that Hubbers below a certain score aren't recognised - that's definitely NOT true.

      Scores have absolutely no effect on  you, except for one thing. Below a certain score, if you have links in any of your Hubs, they are tagged "no follow".   The only time you need to worry about that is if those links are promoting your own website or blog - in which case you've lost the benefit of the link. Otherwise it doesn't matter - the "no follow" tag just means that Google won't follow the link.  It still works for real readers.

        And that score is?

          I remember it being 75 for a Hub Score, 85 for Hubber Score. It used to be lower.

            Actually I was wrong, it's 40 for a Hub Score. I was right about the Hubber Score. http://hubpages.com/faq/#linksnofollow

        I don't use links except maybe once  in a blue moon on a photo.
        It has always been my understanding that  google does not recognize hubbers with  scores below 83. In other words if your score is 83 or above you get google traffic if not you get nothing.

          Google does not know or care what your hubber score is. Hub scores are only an internal thing and mostly, they mean nothing smile

          No idea where you got that idea from, but it's a load of rubbish!

          Google doesn't know or care what scores mean.

        We always say hubber score doesn't matter, and in general, I agree, but I found this on the Learning Center, and if it's true, then having a higher hubber score gives us more time before our hubs are unfeatured. https://hubpageshelp.com/features/Learn … tured-Hubs

        "How Much Search Traffic is Needed for a Hub to Stay Featured?
        Your Hub needs to have some search traffic to stay Featured. The amount of traffic it needs and the length of time it has to accrue that traffic is determined by your Hubber Score.

        Hubs written by Hubbers with very high Hubber Scores will have up to a few years for their Hubs to prove themselves. Those with lower Hubber Scores may have as little as one month (we're talking pretty low Hubber Scores in that case)."

          Wow that's interesting.   Every now and then, HubPages slips in a rule or two without announcing them. Sounds like this is one.

      yup, don't worry too much about the scores, that isn't really important, look at your daily earnings, THAT is IMPORTANT

        I'm way more concerned with CPM than Hubscore.

    The other accusation is also very silly. Logging in does not reduce your score. Rather it would increase one more point in your score.
    Whether you log in or not the scoring system does its job according to the scheduled times and norms.

      My scores always go down when in the forums.

    As long as I've been writing on Hubpages, my score has fluctuated 10 points. I never pay attention to it, it doesn't affect my traffic or income at all smile

    I heard the full moon affects it as well.

      You're very probably right - considering the obscure workings of HubberScore, it's as good an explanation as any!

    You've got the cart before the horse. Traffic and quality are what decides hub scores, hub scores don't impact quality and traffic.

    Very interesting discussion! I have not added any Hub for many months now. Nor I interact much with other Hubbers. Mine Hubber Score ranges between 87-90. And this range is maintained for more than a year.

      A couple of years ago, I did not log in at all for over 6 months. When I returned my Hubber score was 100.

    I think it must be a computerized response.  My score goes up and down a few points like a yoyo!  With no apparent reason.
    Similarly with my Commentator level. It has been Level 4 for some time but a few weeks ago it suddenly dropped to 3.  My assumption it's because I was not affraid to confront a very vocal and insulting person, but they managed to report me, just before they were banned from HP.
    Although it can be encouraging to have higher scores, maybe our egos need to addressed more often, and basically ignore the scores.
