How does the scoring system work for hubs. How is it already scored before anyone even reads it?
I still don't get it. Some of my hubs are going up gradually, some going down. But I don't really understand why some would vote down the ones that they are. It's legitimate advice. Someone must be having a bad hair day.
I don't know. I once was had an unpublished essay that somehow acheived a relatively high score before rotating back down the conveyor belt. The system is very mysterious.
The best that I can tell is every new hub that you publish starts off with a score of 50, and then grows from that point. I hope this was some help to you.
HubScores and HubberScores (2 different things) are somewhat complicated. There are many factors that define your score. Scores are calculated by an algorithm (which is secret, not even the HubPages staff is totally aware of) and they will fluctuate regularly. This is normal. There are certain factors that dictate your score: quality of Hub content, Hub traffic, how much you participate in the Community by Answering Questions, leaving Comments on other's Hubs and posting in the Forums are just a few. I suggest you follow this link from the HubPages Learning Center. This is the HP official publication regarding HubScore and HubberScore calculations: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/hubs … bber-score
I hope this helps!
J.S. Matthew's answer and link are excellent. I have paid careful attention to the ups and downs of the past few weeks and a few patterns have appeared to me for both HubScores and my HubberScore:
First, the popularity of a subject can change over time. My Christmas Hubs have sunk slowly over the past two weeks, even if they are receiving some traffic; but I can tell that they are not being accessed now by topical searches on HubPages, Google or Yahoo. Other Hubs have higher scores now than they did two weeks ago simply because more people are doing more searches on these topics.
Second, I have noticed that more relavant links included in your Hubs will give you a higher starting Hub score, as will keyword density that makes it easier for AdSense to attach relevant ads.
Of course these are only a few of the things that calculate into the equation. See J.S. Matthew's link for other answers. Remember also that your involvement on HubPages--reading, commenting, and so on--will effect your HubScores as well as your Hubber Score.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

The scoring system of habpages is either fundamentally flawed or purposely biased in favor of long hubs. You said it hubpages team: the more, the merrier, but I donâ��t think that this is in your interest, or the interest of hubbers and other people using the website. To make my case, I...

Anyone -I am simply curious and apparently I can be so on this thread... so here it goes:-)If I have a total of TEN Hubs - what per average Hub score would they need to maintain for my overall score to average above a 95?Anyone know the right equation for getting these results? I figured if I...

Do you add content to your worst-performing Hub or your best to make it even better? Do you add content to the low-scoring Hubs before the high scorers? What else do you think when you decide when or if to add content to a Hub?

Hubber scores do not reflect anything but some weird algorithm that is not in sync with anything. My score just went sixteen points down. My views are up and I am featured way more that 140 times.But what I noticed was Billybuc. He is an 88. What? He is the highest ranking site at Hub pages. This...

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 efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...
