When you do a Hubpage boo-boo, do your emotions drop along with your ratings?
We know that the mysterious and secretive Hubpage algorithms involve all things "hubpages." This means your activity and related activity effects your profile score; and indirectly your individual Hub scores.
When we accidentally do something not to the guidelines or liking of others [and perhaps get flagged] is there a way to make recompense? Can we DELETE our mistake on Hubpages QUESTION/ANSWERS section? Suddenly, profile rating drops and wonder how to repair the damage? Question is two part: 1. Do your emotions drop along with ratings? 2. Is there a way to repair profile score & feelings?
If I understand you correctly: 1) It's always disappointing when scores drop, I mean, we do strive to keep them up. 2) I suppose the only thing you can do there is be good in future, then maybe things might 'right' themselves.
Scores? Bahhh, forget the scores. I couldn't give a damn about the scores, I am here for the mullah.
I mean, just think about it, its a mathematical formula or two. No piece of math is going to judge me! I judge myself! And the only person who I need to prove anything to, is myself.
I agree with ryankett, whose response I voted up. At the end of the day, you just can't allow yourself to be judged by the "free market." I know that's not exactly what you asked but all things wind up at the money.
What I mean is, it is well known that the higher your hub score, the higher your individual hubs are scored (indirectly at least, if we can make the logical assumption that the precise inverse of what you said, Debby Bruck, is true -- you know how profile score based on activity and such are tied one way or another); and the higher your articles will be rated on search engines, and so on and so forth.
But as ryankett said, "its a mathematical formula or two." But math doesn't come out of the sky, the math is applied by human beings with individual preferences, tastes, styles, and the like. You can "set" the mathematical formula to a "setting" and then whatever comes closest to that "objective" standard is supposed to be the best quality????
That's why is just best to forget the scores and do your best writing.
I agree with the other answers. But I do, still, find my sense of happiness drop with the ratings. I seem to be fluctuating in a 3 to 5 point range. Sometimes I think it is because I get busy with work and don't participate as much as usual or publish as often as usual. I try to behave myself with questions and answers, though.
I think if you've been writing long enough, you learn over time that not everyone is going to agree with you, your thoughts may go un-heard, and your effort may seem futile, yet you keep on writing. For you, not some score. Besides, there are so many talented writers on hubpages, that score is rather irrelevant.
Absolutely not. Hubpages is practice and a unique way to socialize. Nothing more. If I get voted up, no problems. If I tank, well I have myself to blame, but understand that I'm not getting paid for what I write (seriously, how many of you actually click the links on soneone else's huns?) so I'm not losing anything and actaull gain. Sure I do. If I do good, then I did something right and can carry on in that vein or keep that energy up and go in another direction. If I write a huge piece of steaming poo, well, I know what to do different next time.
I imagine it's all relative comparing to others, but hey, I'm a few screws shy of a full assembly anyway. Take it for what it's worth.

Hello everyone. I'm very new to hubpages, day 2 and counting. I'm trying to figure out what all of these scores mean. There are some next to my hubs and one next to the picture on my profile. And what does it mean when these go up and down? Just wondering if I'm getting off to a good start.

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

Why do Hubpage accounts with high scores have very low Google page rank?I have been checking page rank for certain Hubpages users who have high HP scores i.e. over 90. Google seems to give many of them a very low page rank. Page rank is an indicative metric of web authority according to Google....

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...
