How does Hubpages calculate your profile score and your Hub score?
My profile score and Hub score just go up and down randomly whenever I check them. I’ve heard that Hub score is calculated by traffic. Is it true? Is traffic the only factor? How about profile score? Someone please help me answer this question!!! Thanks
Seriously, I don't know. I know it is influenced by your hub quality, comments, feedback, back links may be.
May be it is similar as Google page rank algorithm. It is secret
HubScore takes into account many factors and will change over time as data continues to stream in. It will also fluctuate quite a bit, seemingly at random, and that is nothing to worry about. The most important HubScore components that you should be
Thanks! I just wanted to clear things up. I'm not paying that much attention on Hub score anyway.
Hub Scores are calculated by the quality of the work in the hub. Typos, misspellings and bad grammar detract. When you add pictures, videos, and use different text boxes to break up the text into easy reading sections, the score goes up,. If you take a couple of days to write it, they figure you did a better job. Usually, I let mine sit for 24 hours after I finish it and then edit for errors. This will get the score up another 10 points or so before publishing. Then it will go up and down by the number of visitors and their interaction on your hub. Voting and comments figure in there.
The Hubber score is a combination. They average the hub scores and then figure your interactions in the HubPages community. Commenting, reading, answering comments, asking and answering questions, HubHopping, participating in forums, all figure into the equation. The more time you spend, the higher your Hubber score will be. If you do not care for a section, (example; forums) don't worry about participating. You can still get a perfect score. That will not last, and rarely does it last for more than a day or two.
Enjoy your time on HubPages and don't worry about the scores, just write quality articles. Let the scores worry about themselves. Most of us that have been here very long, don't really worry about them except to make sure the beginning hubscore is as high as we can get them. That is the most important thing.

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

This month has been a really great month for me. My Hub views have been at 500% views each week, averaging 200-300 views a day. My actual score has went from 90 to 80 in that time. I know there is no correlation between the score and the content, but it still agitates me lol.

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?
