    How do you handle watching your scores go up and down for your hubs?

    Especially if you put a lot of work into it, are trying to help others and some of it is personal?  Honestly, when my scores go down, it makes me want to pull all of my hubs.  I'm seriously considering it.  I'm not on here much anyway.  I'm not a sore loser, I just wore my heart on my sleeve with a lot of my stuff so I take it personally.

    For my first couple of months, it worried me. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. For the most part, the little algorithms that determine our Hub scores and our Hubber scores are always fluctuating. I honestly don't care anymore... LOL. I have to pick my stress battles, and my scores aren't on the top of my list.

      Yea, that's true about the scores.  I'm only writing here to help people and to share my poetry.  I don't like the whole score thing.  I don't think writing should be scored, unless you're in school lol.

    Lol..the best way to handle them is to never look at them...
    i wish i cared about...the technical side of writing..
    the google gods, our hub scores, links...etc..
    but the fact of the matter is - i just wanna write..
    i don't want to be 'scored'...
    lol..

      Same here, but when I click on my account and see my statistics, watching my scores go down makes me think people don't like what I'm writing.  So, I want to write but it would also be nice if people actually like what I'm writing lol.

      Hmmm..i can't believe that's all the score means, Faith - I get a ton of comments and my score ranges between 88 and 92..
      i also think it has to do with how many hubs you have in ratio to time here on the hub..
      clearly - i have no clue...LOL

      Maybe if I didn't share such personal things, it wouldn't bother me so much I guess.  I only did that to help others like myself.  The few that have thanked me are enough for me.  My poetry is very personal though, took a lot for me to share here.

    I don't worry about scores here on the Hub Pages. I'm just here for fun, and I enjoy getting all of those wonder comments from all of the great people here on the Hub Pages.

      I don't usually worry about my scores.  I'm so busy doing other things that I don't even sign in much.  But from time to time I check.  I think if I put more into hubpages my scores would be higher. I also know the amount of page views affects score.

    Thank you for all of your comments and feed back, I appreciate it.  I was considering removing my account because I don't really use it, but I've decided not to yet.  Several people have been able to relate to my stuff, and that's all that matters to me I guess.  I always say, even if you can help just one person, then you can make a difference in the world.
