I was shocked this morning that despite posting a new hub last night my hub profile score had dropped from 96 down to 88. I posted in Hubber's Hangout and it turns out that I am not alone because other hubbers have their scores going down and some are reporting by a figure of at least 8 same as mine.
I now find that my score is 87 on my profile and 88 in the forums.
I have been 96 at the lowest and 100 maximum for the past few months so what is going on here?
I was of the impression that we dont have to worry much about hubscores. How come hubbers seem to be in a state of worry over this? Mine's been fluctuating between 93 and 96, and i STILL dont know how i got to the 90's. Or what the criteria for scoring is. Since we've been told not to worry.
I am now informed that this has happened because of the hub challenge and that hubbers in it are outperforming those of us who are not in it and that is why our scores are down! Well, I don't have time for contests and challenges so looks like I will have to get used to having a lower score here! A great shame though!
I'm not sure who informed you of that, but that's just silly. What really happened is that we rolled out a new release last night, and there was a small bug that affected some scores. Everything should be back to normal now.
Mine is way down too Steve. I can't participate in this challenge either--I've got too much other writing to do. My ad revenue is way down too. It's too bad. I really like Hub Pages but I can't devote most of my day to it.
It was just from one of us guys. And that is not quite how I suggested it. I suggested that the hubbers who took part in the hubchallenge may be "outperforming" those who did not. And as the hubberscore is graded on a curve (not sure exactly how) this will drop others down.
Just checked mine out today and it has dropped down to 86, which is the lowest I have ever known it. Weird if you consider I am getting over 800 viewings a day between all of my hubs right now, plus I am currently publishing about one article a week,
Paul Deeds posted yesterday that there was a problem with an update that caused this and they were working on it. Yesterday I fell to an 88 but I'm back to normal today. So they still must be tweaking it.
Mine is 72 right now which is an all time low for me I never came below the 80 mark for the last 14 months. I just published a hub yesterday and was expecting it to rise a bit, but its has dropped 8-10 points I think things may still be wrong!!
I've been with Hubpages for 18 months, and haven't been below 90 since I joined. Yesterday it was at 83 and this morning it was at 76! All I did was join one fan club and write a hub with no external links (couldn't be considered overly promotional)
Maybe the reason why score are lowering is that the adsense engineer are having site maintenance this day. Thats what I read when I check my adsense and probably affecting hubpages score I duno if I'm right.
Right there with you guys, I haven't been below the 90's since my first week here and now I log into a 79. Funny thing is, all my hubscores are fluctuating close to normal. Must be a slow bug to fix, oh well!
Yes your even lower than my score. I was at 88 dropping to 84 only. I don't know tomorrow. so probably it has something to do with the adsense site maintenance and the earnings in adsense is not even updated for over a week already. Maybe when things will be fixed it will be normalize again.
I noticed a rather slight drop from 95 to 89, but without any of my hub scores changing my score became 32 also. In 24 hrs this is amazing, wonder how fast it can go the other direction. Let's watch, wait and see. Looks lioke something in the system, not jsut me. Thanks Bard for starting this forum.
I have been with HubPages for just 4 months but have taken great care of my HubScore--I have been around a 90-92 for two months now with just 31 hubs--now my score is a 33? What a disappointing beat down. Hope they fix the bug--
Looks like things are back in place. Look up Princessa is back on 99! Now relax folks Princessa and all those who were affected and have recovered now (refer to the list I have mentioned in my previous post above) are gonna treat us! So where is the party Princessa and Co.? I hope all are invited!
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...
So my author hubscore has been consistantly going down. I am at 93 today which is lower than I have been in many months. Lately I have been addding a lot of hubs, at least one per day over the lat two...
My hubscore is usually from 96 at its lowest to 100 at its best but today it has dropped down to 89 and then to 88 while I have been on the site! This is worrying, especially considering that I posted a new hub last...
Have you noticed that your Hubscores have been submerging lately? But of course they don't matter and we are told to ignore them. Something is afoot on the old flip flop flipper. I suspect that the traffic contribution...
I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...
