How come my scores on my articles keeps changing? One of my articles was a 70 then a minute later it was 60 something.
Who knows. There could be some algorithmic reason for it, or it could just be a needle in the butt to keep people publishing. I ignore scores and focus on writing quality articles.
The HubPages score software is a secret. So unless a disgruntled employee wants to leak the process we writers will never 100% understand it.
I seem to get a boost in score with more traffic. I recently edited and proofread the 10 or so articles I have and all of my scores went up. But I had some things that needed to be fixed.
It seems the best thing to do is to ignore the score as long as articles are getting traffic. Low scores could be a sign of low traffic?
I do not focus much on scores either because it reminds me of being back in college and being obsessed with my GPA.
Lisa, I’m going to try now and answer your question. Historically, my hubs both old and new that get lots of traffic tend to have higher scores. By the same token, my hubs both old and new that do not get as much traffic tend to have lower scores. Yes, my scores do fluctuate and sometimes radically. You are not alone. Hope this helps.

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be. Today, I'd like to talk about the subsequent update to Hubber Score — the score...

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...

During my time on HP I have head/seen/read a lot of speculation about the scoring system. I have given up trying to figure out my profile score but my articles are different. As I understand it the more views, vote up and feedback, the higher the hub will score. I figured if you have a hub that has...

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?
