Since starting the hubchallenge I have noticed a couple of things.
1. My hub score has dropped.
2. My traffic has increased
3. My fans that normally stop by my hubs, stopped coming by.
4. Building a hub each day takes a good chunk of time and consumes most of your free time.
I am going to see this through to the end because I have 18 left to do and I will get it done. Being at the halfway mark (almost) I expected more, but we'll see how it is after the eighteenth hub is published and the challenge is completed. I.E 12 done + 18 more to publish = 30.
Stick with it, Wes! I know you'll complete it (truth is, I don't seem the type to quit anything). Good luck.
Looks fine to me. And anyway, as long as your overall hubber score is 75+, who cares?[
Now that's a good thing!
While it might (underscore MIGHT) hurt your hubscore ever so slightly, it won't hurt your earnings. Hubbers aren't supposed to click on ads and don't buy products.
Um, yeah. That's why I didn't make it past day two...
Do you mean "I" don't seem the type or "you" don't seem the type?
I know it is foolish to put any value on the hubber score but I can't help it sometimes. I want a 100 just once. After that I could really give a rip, so long as it stays over 75 like you said.
Anyway, I am getting to the point of irritation with the whole thing. Like Dohn says though, I am not the kind of guy to quit, especially because all I have to do is publish the hubs I wrote.
Once finished I am going to think about redesigning my whole concept of hubbing. Like types of articles/hubs written and such.
P.S. Thank you for supporting me, I appreciate it.
You've been here two months and are worried you haven't hit 100? It takes time. Writing regularly has paid off for me in many ways, including seeing my first 100.
Like Irohner said, hubber fans don't click on ads. You want to attract the general public and they typically don't leave comments or let you know they've been there. You can only tell by your pageviews, hub stats, and your Google Analytics to tell you where your traffic and your money is coming from.
I'm not sure how other hubbers do it, but sometimes my time is limited. I still often read the hubs of those I'm a fan of, but may not necessarily stop and comment. I will always leave them a thumbs up if I don't have time to comment. So, chances are your fans have been by, they just may not have left a mark.
Of course, I look over and there sits Dohn with a 100 in only 3 months! Way to go, Dohn!
I think it's inevitable that when a Challenge is on, you'll get fewer visits from fans. There are just too many Hubs being published to keep up - I, for one, have just stopped trying!
You know, I don't even know what my Hubber score is, and I have no idea whether I ever reached 100. You stop worrying about it after a while.
Thank you, KCC Big Country! Before today, I wanted only to reach 100 once, just like Wes. 100 is certainly an elusive score to reach. Please be patient Wesley. At times when my hubberscore plummeted (I once went from a 99 to a 94 in one hour) I took it personally, which is silly. It's like a Dow Jones average. Just read other people's hubs, leave comments, rate them up, and participate in forms and you'll be fine I'm pulling for you, buddy.
First off I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to you guys, your words of encouragement are much appreciated.
Second, I'll get off my damn soapbox now. I just got flustered because of the unavailability of stats and such.
wesley everyone's pretty much said what needed saying so I'll just say chin up, you're doing a sterling job and you will see the positives
I wish i could hit 100 if just for a day or 2. I was so excited when i hit 99. Have no clue how i did, but....well i guess wonders never cease.
You'll get there before you realise it.
And just to make a point....Dohn is now at 96 in less than 24 hours...(looks like 17 hrs, possibly less)....so that's what we mean by how quickly it goes. Just enjoy it when you have it, and don't give it a second thought when you don't.

Well...I knew it was insane for me to take the HubChallenge and aim for 100 hubs in 30 days (probably should have aimed for 30). I am 35 weeks pregnant and that means not always feeling the greatest. Plus I am a work from home mom of a very active 3 year old. I was doing great at the start of the...

I have been on Hubpages for almost 3 years now! I have never experienced such a low HubberScore of 43-45, it has always been 70+, even in my worst days. What's even worse for my current situation, it is that this dreadful experience does not seem to have an end, it has been like this for almost 2...

Has anyone else noticed their HubScore drop since starting the Hub Challenge? I know it goes up and down based on traffic, so you'd think with publishing more Hubs, it would go up, right? Weird.

I saw that Hubber Jeffrey Neal decided to write a hub that will journal his efforts and results in the 30 day challenge.Jeffrey Neal: A Hubchallenge JournalI have always been inspired and learned a lot from real time journals in the online writing/marketing arena. I read JeffreyNeals and am looking...

I am looking for 5 things that will increase my hubber score.Assume there are enough articles to manipulate and about 200 featured but a ton "less than". The hubber does not network and just wants to raise the score. There is no angst or financial issue, just raise that score.Should...

I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...
