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.
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'...
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.

Has the fun gone out of HubPages?The new scoring system with HubPages has dropped me like a bad habit. No matter what I do now my score doesn't go up. Quite frankly, after being here for over 5 years I am disgusted. Please don't tell me scores don't matter because they do. It is as though I have...

produces: anxiety!C'mon, Hubpages! I've been a good boy. I've improved my hubs. I've been "awarded" a Level 2 Commentator (oh joy.) My personal story of near death and survival is consistently coming up TWICE (original hub and five year follow up) in Google search on page one out of over...

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

Hi folks, I wondered if you could help at all? I am scratching my head at the moment about this, wondering why it is happening.Whilst I know that Hub scores do go up and down, I have Hubs that were rated in the 90s that are now in the 70s. In particular, an "Editor's Choice" Hub about a...

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...
