    Ok , Im gonna have a wee grizzle and groan ,then I promise Ill be done. smile
    10 days ago my score jumped from 92 up to 97 ,highest ever.
    I did a little victory dance and a squirrel mouthed through the window, as if to say.
    Whats up with that ?
    Yes Im finally on track ,now I gotta keep doin whatever I was doin or I fall into the cracks.
    Sadly though I came down with flu and in with the beautiful sunny weather came sinus and flu.
    I rested , I medicated ,I did all the right things.
    My score understandbly went down with me ,and the poor me's set in.
    Steriods are amazing things and seeing those red triangles turn blue saw me pick up pen and paper again. smile

    For two days I participated in the forum, read and commented on new and old Hubs , tweeked my old hubs , added a couple of new writers...finally put together a brand new Hub , and watched the blue triangles turn red again ( one even had twin triangles-wow!)
    I had to nurse that score ,finally it began to climb slo-w-l-y again
    3rd day and geeze its limping again ,despite all my hard work.
    So like that squirrel peeking at me from the tree thats probably giving me asthma
    Whats UP with that ? sad

    Eagle - seriously ignore it ... else it'll drive you mad. I've hit 100 a couple of times and the last time it happened I wasn't even online for 48 hours and it whomped to the top. I certainly don't aim for it so have no idea why it happens.

    Sometimes I'm more active and it slumps. I get external hits but they're not in the majority. I don't write hubs that attract clicky readers. I don't have hundreds of fans and am not the type that gets a million comments.

    It's a mystey how it works. And not worth losing sleep over wink

    Frogdropping is right. I've also hit 100 but on the scenario where everything was the opposite of what Frogdropping described. So I echo her question - who knows? cool

    Is it just me or am I really talking to an eagle and a frog? LOL cool

    I confess to wondering how it works too.  I've tried to detect patterns, but it's sort of all over.  I have three hubs that seem to anchor my consistent traffic (getting between 25 and 70 Google etc. hits per day) and another four or five that get between 5 and 20, and when those are all working my score goes up.  Having a new hub, like you suggested, seems to help a little, but only for the first week or so its out unless it "lives" longer than that, which they rarely do.  Best bet is not to pin your enjoyment of hubpages to it. Enjoy it if its up, but don't sweat it too much otherwise.  I see fantastic writers like Pgrundy and Christoph Reily, etc. in the mid-90s frequently enough to know that that score doesn't mean anything meaningful. If they can be there, then regular humans like us can too.

    Trying to understand the hubscoreauthorscoremystery is like trying to either find God - or your car keys.

    And I have a sneaky suspicion that it's actually far simpler than we realise.

    Often the most obvious answer is the right answer ...

    And yes Cris - you are talking to animals. Hence forth you shall be named Dr C. A. Dolittle big_smile

    I really wonder if there is any logic to these scores...in the last month, I haven't posted a single hub, just some comments here and there and I once saw my score at 96..the highest, as compared to the month when I posted 14 hubs.

    Have given up trying to figure out the thing.

    It's easily explained: take the coefficient of the radius. factor in metal fatigue and average climate discrepancies, air pressure over the Antarctic, and median height of all hubbers in alphabetical order times the sum of the Nasdaq index over the course of three years: then take away the number you first thought of.  See?
