    Do you feel discouraged or depressed when your hubscore dips?

    If that number in the lower right hand corner of my profile picture means anything at all, I keep my eye on it as if it is a school grade that tells me how much I am putting into my work. Does it mean anything to you? And if it dips like it normally is subject to, how do you feel?

    Absolutely not.  Right now mine is about as low as it gets, and the reason mine is low is because I've published several hubs over the past few days - and published them quickly.

    When you publish something quickly it's nearly always going to start it's life with a low score, and that will then bring your average for all hubs down, which in turn brings your author score down.

    That stuff is all going to rise though - no big deal.

    Another thing - I've hit the "follow" button on several person's profiles lately because they either commented or followed me, and after looking over some of their content - it looked like a good idea to follow them as well.

    I'm fairly certain that following a large number of persons keeps my score lower - but guess what?  I don't care.  I'm here to make some money at this point, momma needs a new pair of shoes.

    Not in the slightest. I pretty much ignore it.

    I'd be lying if I said I didn't go, "What the heck!" when it dips a bit but I think Wesman is right on.

    You see in my one hub about hitting a 100 in a short time...I couldn't even put my finger on it. I haven't changed anything I'm doing on here and haven't seen it since. New hubs, a down vote on an answer, spending less than 6 hours a day on site...I think they all have some impact so don't sweat it. There seems to be a lot of long term hubbers here with good stuff that areen't even in the 90's. I've lingered in the 96-100 range for about a month and am not rich yet so...??? What do I know? I just keep learnin' and hubbin' cause I like it!

    The hubscore and it's mood swings seem to me to be just a carrot in front of the donkey.  I really believe that the secret is to write for the love of it and there passion it brings.  The writing  should be a release of something inside you rather than solely an attempt to gain another notch on the hubscore ladder.  Get the passion right and the rest will follow... but even if it doesn't, you had a passionate time along the way, right?

    i feel same as my hub score down . but according to me , regularity in hub is must .If you put new idea or express new desire in forum and comment on different hobs and it is new and people relate it then obviously your hub score will be increasing because people love new things or idea.

    Mine goes up and down like a yo yo all the time! Basically I just ignore it and concentrate on writing my hubs and reading other hubbers. To be honest, it totally confuses me anyway the fact that it does jump up and down so much, so I feel better when I just switch off and ignore it.

    I got ridiculed for caring, but it bothers me very much. Then I run to answer questions and try to bring it back up. It is the lowest right now as it has been in a long time and I cannot figure out why. I am usually in the high 90's and it is really bothering me. I cannot figure it out.

    It did bother me when I was just a month old member here. It doesn't anymore. I believe the people who had acquired that 100 score were the ones who were not bothered by their hubscores.
    We shouldn't be discouraged by its drop. Its rise however is quite encouraging. It cheers us up.

    If it dips down a little, no worries, and it motivates me to be a little more active on Hubpages. I think of it as something that will fluctuate over time, and if it gets higher, it means that there's more traffic coming your way. Some good things to do: review other hubs, post positive, conversational comments, check hubpages to make sure they are optimized to their fullest potential, including adding keywords and summaries. Remember not to add too many keywords.

    Hope this helps.
