    Or here.

    I've done little or nothing on hubpages over the weekend. No hubs, forum stuff(some - not loads) etc. I've been too busy elsewhere.

    And so my Q is this: Why has my score gone up? Based upon the ever mysterious hubscore algorithm.

    I'm of the mind it's publishing + forum activity + interacting generally + views + not entirely sure = elevated score.

    Anyone?

    Spankyou smile

    Happens that way with my score too.  Stay away for awhile and it's up, join in again and it drops.  Makes no sense.

    It's totally random - I'd pay no attention to it, it'll drive you nuts.

    It doesn't drive me nuts. I was I suppose thinking more in relation to the many queries relating to the hubscore algorithm and hubbers interpretation of it.

    Personally - I think its got a mind of its own smile

    I agree that it seems to make no sense.  Mine has been bouncing around between 89 and 97 over the last week or so.

    Congratulations London Girl. 100 is a fabulous score, and I've yet to achieve those lofty heights!

    My score has been around 95- 98 for weeks now, even when I haven't logged in for days at a time. There's no apparent logic.

    Whoops, spoke too soon. Down to 94 now!

    I already told you in the cynic hub-- NASA and monkeys.
    Everything in life comes down to NASA and monkeys...
