I have big question mark about fluctuating hub scores. I am in hubpages since last one and half year and yet can not understand its working method.
For instance, I had hub score 90 yesterday night that has fallen to 88 today morning (In 12 hours). In between, my traffic has risen by eleven percent (My account Statistics). Moreover, I have started a new hub, commented on some hubs and participated in forum after some days.
Hubpages authorities say that these above mentioned features increase hubscore.
What may be the possible reason of decreasing hubscore?
Definitely hubscore has dropped due to some other reason (and not because of increasing traffic).
HubPages does not reveal how they calculate scores as then the system could be gamed.
And traffic isn't everything.
If your score is continuously above 75 then smile, you're doing everything right!
Like the others said ... there is a random element to it all that keeps everyone guessing the 'secret recipe', but the reality is that you only need a 75 to have 'dofollow' links, and Hubpages wouldn't allow them to anyone they thought wasn't writing material that could be profitable. As such, shoot for 75 and remain calm while it stays above that mark.
Now, if it ever falls below 75, you need to look into what you are doing, as then you have done something dreadfully wrong.
**Important note: This information is in regards to older members who have already crossed the 75 watermark. Those who are starting out new will start at the bottom (like we all did) and need only do a bit of research on this site to discover how to raise up above 75 in short time.
The reason is that the algorithm used to calculate hub scores deliberately includes a random element. This is there to keep things interesting in the Best listings, so that a visitor will not always see the same two dozen hubs hogging the first two pages.
It also means that someone visiting your personal 'Best hubs' listing will see some variety. This is all working in your favour.
There is also a random element in the hubber's score, and for the same reason. My score fluctuates between 93 and 100. I don't give it a second thought unless it starts dropping out of range.
Thx for explaining this. I didn't about this random algorithm concept until now.
can we guess what may be those random elements? i have also seen that some hubbers are continually maintaining their hubscores.
Some says that hubscore does not matter if it is over 75. However it matters because a hubber is listed according to his or her hub scores only.
I used to wonder about it, too. Not so much any more. Have figured out what seems to be my own personal pattern, such as it is, for NOW anyway: If I'm totally active including writing at least a couple of Hubs a week and participating in the Forums, it'll run around 92 to 95 most of the time. If not, it'll drop as low as 88...doesn't seem to travel much outside of those paramaters except for a "twitch" now and then.
But other than that--I'd do as well trying to beat the House in Vegas.

It seems that now I have been more active on the site, HubPages has lowered my scores on some hubs, but also increased my score on others. Anyone know why that is? Thank you, everyone! :-)

To those with decreased hubscores as a result of the new hubscore updates, has this eventmotivated or demotivated you from writing hubs? Has the new hubscore updates making you reconsider staying at HubPages or simply giving up and moving on?

There is the oddest of correlations between my traffic and my hubberscore - that when my traffic goes down, my hubberscore goes up. Like all of us here, I don't understand the purpose of either the hubscore or the hubberscore. There is no correlation between earnings and scores. There is no...

I would like a better explanation of the Hub Score. I have a Hub that I uploaded on May 12th, it's ranked #2 on Google search results for its main keyword phrase, it's getting 175 visits per day sent by Google, but the Hub Score is only 78. Is that because someone at MTurk didn't like...

Yes, I have checked the FAQ but I don't see an answer to this one:I check my account quite often, out of curiosity really, and have noticed some scores for individual hubs moving up or down for no apparent reason. There have been no new page views, I have not edited the hub, there have been no...

I received an email that a new Hub is "eligible" for a niche site. But it suggests I need to proofread it before it can move over. I edited the article for readability and ran it through a spelling and grammar checker before I published it. After receiving the email, I reread it and ran...
