Okay, I realize hub scores fluctuate, but yesterday mine dropped 5 points in just a couple of hours. WHY?? I wasn't doing anything differently. Thanks for any insight!
I just don't even worry about it. I've read that a lot of things go into your hub score. In the end I would imagine the quality of your writing has a lot to do with it. Maybe that's why I seem to be stuck in the eighties! lol
I've been trying to figure that out since I signed on, scores appear to change for no reason I can recognize. The other day I was an 87 and it jumped to 94. I like it, but have no clue why, nothing changed, average views stayed the same, particpiation the same, ect. No new hub, just increased. Its better than a decrease, but I've have that too. So when you figure it out let me know.
Maybe I'll post here and mine will jump up into the 90's as well LOL
I would like to know Why my Hub article scores reach the mid eighties and high seventies and then immediately all drop down to mid sixties?
I have considered that perhaps it relates to page views; but then it still seems to happen on my average days.
To me: It's a complete turn off as I know that the writing quality is often higher than higher scoring hubs that I've read.
Any Actual Light on this?
Hubscores shmubscores, don't worry about the score, just worry about putting out decent hubs. I joined here about 9 months ago and every couple of weeks there's a forum post about hubscores. Honestly, they don't bring you more traffic, comments etc, so don't waste valuable writing time worrying about it.
Hi Cindy.... How's the biz going?
I know what you are saying is correct and I agree; But I hate seeing my work chopped back as soon as it starts reaching a ninety article score. It appears that Only highly commercial product reviews maintain 85+ article scores.
You know.... If I drive; I wish to understand how the steering wheel works!!
Ah yes the elusive mystery of the jumping hubscore. Mine changes all the time and for apparently no logical reason what so ever, still trying to figure that one out!
stuff you do while on HP isn't instantaneous. It takes a little while for the score to be affected by whatever it's being affected by. So it may have just refreshed and adjusted within that time. Like cindy said--they aren't all that important in the grand scheme of things but they are hard to ignore for the most of us too. Just try and prepare yourself for the constant fluctuations
Mine shifts around all the time
Well personally, I wish to know. Once I know the whys and hows, I then have the ability to make the appropriate adjustments.
Given that it also has been promoted as being a facet of the writer's score; then potentially my writer's score will as a result, never climb above 94, until I have produced a much higher number of hubs!
I Might Be a Complete Idiot in how I do things.. but I see the article score as being of value to my choices of writing subjects, irrespective of the unknown factors and SEO!

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

I have always had hub scores in the range mentioned above. How do I improve my hub score? All suggestions and help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total hub count is now way down, so that instead of 10 more hubs to 100, I've now got to...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of priority about what to do next.Up until now I've been focused on the traffic data and...

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me and compelled me to ask this question. I know we'd all like to be able to create...
