    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 smile 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 smile

      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. big_smile

      ok, didn't mean to leave such a long winded answer! lol

      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.
