I'm a newbie on here,so I'll aplogise in advance if this question has been done to death on here in the past, but it has occured to me that certain unscupulous individuals would comment on hubs 'willy nilly' just to further their own scores, rather than actually giving a **** about what they have just read.
Would'nt it be better to be scored from traffic generated and content topic, rather than other hubbers comments?
some do that anyway Since you are so new, only a few days, your score is going to continue to rise pretty evenly so long as you keep active. So, while it may seem as if your score rose simply from commenting, it's likely because, as Darkside said, some of the many factors that affect the score.
Often, your score won't reflect your activity right away, either. So try not to get discouraged about its fluctuating day to day.
The one big thing that seems to DROP a score almost immediately is serial fanning/spam fanning or fanning a bunch of people in little time (say 30 in 5 minutes) other than that, it usually takes a little time to affect score good or bad
Being active in the community by commenting and rating hubs and posting in the forums, as well as writing quality original hubs will help to continue to raise your score over time.
ok, didn't mean to leave such a long winded answer! lol
Welcome to HubPages!!!!
That situation gets corrected too, as Hub authors can chose to moderate comments. If enough people flag your comments as spam (which can happen from a slew of meaningless posts) then the system starts to mark any comments you make as spam, and then they don't actually show up.
HubScore is influenced by various factors. Traffic, I believe, is a major contributor to HubScore.
And HubberScore is influenced by HubScore and activity.

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

Just as a matter of interest can anyone tell me how you would get a Hubscore of only 1.

Pretty much without exception my Hub score will drop two, three or more points within an hour or two of first posting a Hub. Then it gradually, eventually goes up again. For example, today, March 31, 2011, I posted a...
