    Hey everybody! I've been hubbing for about 5 weeks now and my Hubber score was a 90 - I was thrilled! Then it went back down to 88 and now 85 sad What am I doing, or not doing, to lose points? Any advice would be appreciated!

    It can vary in the course of a week.  I've noticed that if I write Hubs that go in at around a 50 score it seems that my score goes down until those new Hubs creep up.  Since it's a "secret" regarding what technically goes into your main HubScore, nobody can really say.  Having a good balance of reading, voting, forum participating, and writing is what works best (in general).  My score, over the last year or so, has been as low as 91 and as high as 100 (so the 2 "points" down from 90 isn't a big drop at all).  I don't pay attention to it, because I'd just go nuts trying to stay on top of it.  lol

      Yeah, I try not to worry about it too much... But I notice my hubscore seems to be stuck for several days now.  I was used to seeing it fluctuate before & after publishing a new hub.  Anyone else notice that?

      Oh, well, guess it doesn't matter that much.  The stats compilation seems to be okay. big_smile

      I definitely notice a 1 to 3 point dip in my hubber score when I publish a new hub.  I also notice a dip when I’ve been really writing and therefore not in the forums or reading and commenting on others’ hubs. 

      I think us new hubbers will always focus on our hub and hubber scores.  We have to wait for the ratio of hubber traffic and search engine traffic to shift and reverse.  Since we will not likely make any affiliates revenue for months, we take incentive and reward for those numbers and number of fans and page views.

    OK, call me crazy but scores seem to be hanging around the lower end of the spectrum for just about everybody these days. Even hubbers who used to always be in the high 90's/ 100 are hovering around the lower 90's.  Hmmmm

    from 80s to 60s..
    and one more thing - i have a hub with 50+ visits per day which shows traffic down and another hub with 8/9 visit per day, shows two traffic up signs!Also the hubscore of the first hub(content is original) is falling where that of second one is going up(to 70s).

        i think it will take some time to have a stable score.And the score may have some connection with the previous stats of the same hub.
        am i right?

    I noticed that posting on the forums seems to give a small boost to hubscore
    perhaps that might help?

    I did not even know hubpages existed a few months ago so I have decided not to stress.  Face it, the scores do NOT apply to just yor writing and the quality of your writing.  As I speak there is someone on here with an 88 or 89 and he has NO hubs!  Obviously, it has little to do with your actual hubs.
      There are also the people who have high hub scores and write hubs with bad grammar and hubs about things that are guaranteed to get readers (such as making money and losing weight).  Don't let this place stress you or rule your life.  Write what YOU enjoy and/or what your friends and fans enjoy.  Do what you want and enjoy the freedom. 
    I have (as yet) never had higher than an 88 and I can promise you that there are people out there with higher scores who have hubs filled with spelling/grammatical errors and empty promises of riches and lost weight.  I don't care.  I get paid to write and I'm certainly not boring!  So, again, enjoy this place for what it is and leave it at that.

      I agree with you completely! I have seen so many hubs with HORRIBLE grammar that it is impossible to believe that there is any sort of critique of the actual writing.  I have also seen multiple hubs that are more like daily diary entries, so it is impossible to believe that there is any sort of monitoring of the content.
      Thank you for your excellent response to the original question!

    Your Hubscore is affected by things like how much traffic you're getting and how active you are on the forums and on the site in general.

    If you're an egomaniac who gets off on thinking you're better than anyone else, then by all means obsess about it all you like - but otherwise, just forget about it.  Having a good Hubscore doesn't have any effect on your traffic or your earnings. Hubscore only matters within our little community.

    The bigger question here is -- who cares? As long as you stay above the 70+ threshold for author scores and 40-something threshold for hub scores (if your goal is to score backlinks), then hakuna matata. Hub visits and scores don't make you money. External traffic from the search engines and referral sites do.

    In other words, I shouldn't worry about my hubscore hovering around 20? Baby steps right? First, read tutorial. Second, the moon...

    Just by participating here in forums your score goes up. If you want traffic talk in forums about your hubs and related topics, answer questions, network and become a fan, post comments... this is all networking. The more you network the more your score will rise. A score is great but what you really want is more traffic for your ppc ads and to make sure you are posting quality hubs with great information and topics. Have fun no matter what you do and good luck!

    Okay.
    I really want to get back to actually writing but I have a question.  I read somewhere that your hub score can actually be influenced by whether or not you are social here. . .meaning no matter how much you write or how well you write if other people post in forums and post comments on other hubs and read other hubs then they will get high scores. 
    Is that true?  If someone minds his own damn business and writes he will score less than someone who posts on forums and comments on other hubs?  Just curious.  I have to go finish an article on stamp collecting.  It's not exciting but at least I get paid for it!

    I have no idea exactly how its determined but have noticed that it seems to be an average type deal. If I stay away for a few days it drops but if I post a hub about every other day and consistently read and comment on hubs it seems to stay pretty level. I've been staying above 90 for a few weeks now. I don't know the details though. I do see that those who rarely post hubs in general seem to have low scores. While those that have many hubs and high community involvement have high scores, in general anyway.

    I'm new to hubpages and what I have realized is that this is a writers platform. If you posted a hub to get links for ranking in google there are other article distribution sites to do this. Hubpages is a community and if you have not got the time to get involved you are wasting your time posting on Hubpages. It is a great place to be if recognition for your writing is what you are looking for and you meet lots of great people, The score fluctuates so much its not worth stressing about it.

    1. wsp2469 profile image60
      wsp2469posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Your response confuses me.  You say "this is a writers platform" yet you say people who "have the time to get involved" are wasting their time.  I'm not sure where you stand on the issue of getting credit for writing as opposed to getting credit for non-hub-writing activities (if you will).

      Should we get credit for actually writing hubs OR should we get credit for doing other things?

  24. Laura du Toit profile image91
    Laura du Toitposted 7 years ago

    I think the point I was trying to get across was that writing a hub, no matter how good and then forgetting about hubpages and moving on to other article distribution sites will not work.

    If you do not participate in the hub community your score will drop below the required score for your link to count and you would have wasted your time in posting to hubpages in the first place. You would have got a stronger link to your site on ezine.

    I think that the community feeling and the assistance and advice available on hubpages helps to develop writers whereas other article sites are merely sites to build links by hosting your articles.

    Its probably a matter of personal preferences but I find I am more inspired to write on hubpages and I enjoy the forums. It gives me a feeling of belonging to a community of people who share the same interest in writing.

    1. wsp2469 profile image60
      wsp2469posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I see.  While I do agree with you about the feelings of community and so forth (and I DO prefer this to e-zines) I don't feel participation should have any influence on your score.  I feel that anyone who cares about his/her hub score will fee obligated to participate just because (supposedly) participation raises your score.  that doesn't seem right to me.

      My highest score so far has been 88.  That's all well and good.  I personally just tell myself 5 months ago I didn't give a sh*t.  Still, there are actual writers out there who DO care and I think it's unfair that a GOOD writer could get a lower score than someone who does more (so-called) writing in forums than in actual hubs.

    I have definitely seen a change in my score the more I get involved in the Hub Community, like this and commenting, becoming fans etc. Then writing of course but I find my Hub scores fluctuate like crazy and I have stopped trying to figure those out.

    Thanks
