    Do you find if you don't write a hub for a week your score goes down?

    I haven't written a hub for a week, but have tweeked several hubs and continued commenting and my score dropped several points.

    I've also found it, my hub score has stopped on 64, its now more than two weak I haven't write new hub. I think it will get down pretty soon as it has already down from 66 to 64.

    I do believe you are right Carol. Especially if one is not getting involved in some way in the community. Asking questions, answering questions, writing, commenting, etc. I think it involves all of these things plus traffic.

      I really do believe it may affect our Hub score. But, I have written consistently with good traffic and have never gotten above a 95? So who knows? LOL

    My score and especially my views go down if I don't put at least 2 hubs a week on  if I can. Hubpages is time consuming in the beginning for sure.

      though I am not glad to hear this..I cannot always write two hubs a week.

    I have gone days on end without leaving comments, writing a hub or asking a question and still haven't noticed a measurable decline in my hub score. It seems as though hub scores remain the mystery that many want to solve. While certain participation is an integral part of this community, I believe a driving factor in our individual score is writing quality content, coupled with excellent grammar and a format that flows with the subject matter. Then again, I'm only guessing the answer to your question because only the powers that be understand the scoring system.

    I think pagesvoice hit the nail on the head...hubscores are a mystery...whether for your hubs or author score.  Just when I think I have them figured out and my score goes up to 100, I keep doing the same things, then my score goes back down!  As for hubs I only have a few that have over ninety scores but many in the eighties.

    Sometimes it has gone up without writing the Hub. I think Hub Score is average of all Hubs' scores and when a new hub is published its scores goes up over a period of time pulling down the existing average Hub Score. I may be wrong too. See other contributions also.

    Actually, I think the hubscore is an enigma wrapped in a riddle ... There sometimes doesn't seem to be rhyme or reason to it and it sometimes fluctuates suddenly even when you are active writing, updating, answering questions and in the forums. There does seem to be a correlation for me with the latter two activities, however.

    Carol - My score pops up and down like popcorn. smile  I tell myself I'm going to ignore it, but I keep taking a peek. I tend to believe the content quality of a hub is the driving factor which is why I'm concentrating now on revising many of my low scoring hubs.

    Great question.  Don't think there is a "black and white" answer though.

    Understanding what causes hubscores to go down and up is meaningless. Though it's fulfilling to see your a score of 90+ in your profile pic, it seems to have no other good effects other than that. I publish hubs at least once a day not for my hubscore but to get more page views. That should be our main focus right? I read some of your hubs and I find them really interesting. Good luck Carol and have a blessed day!

    My score definitely goes down if I don't write hubs for a while. I haven't written one in several weeks and my score dropped. Reading and commenting on other hubs and interacting with the community through forums and questions helps it go back up but not nearly as high or as fast as writing hubs. However, at the moment I'm so much more obsessed with checking my views. However, I don't like to see my score go down even if it doesn't affect income so time to start writing more hubs.

    I went almost two years without being on Hubpages at all, but the couple times I did check my profile, I was never below 90 for a score. I only have one hub above a 90, most are in the upper 70's or 80's and now my hubberscore is 100, I have no idea I have been more active and writing several hubs a week.

    I remain clueless about this, Carol7777. I posed a forum question regarding same about a week and a half ago when my hubberscore stayed at 90 for 2+ weeks. Despite publishing quality hubs (impeccable grammar and my own images), having increased views, gaining new follows, editing hubs, and remaining active daily, hubberscore would not move. I recall that the day after I reached 10,000 views, it went down and never bugged until this past Saturday. I have not published a hub for at least 2 weeks since. Today, my hub with the most views got a hubscore of 100. Let's see what happens. In my experience, when I do publish a hub, my hubberscore goes down during pending, then back up with featured status. I have a few to write but have been very busy outside of hp.

    I've lost 2 points in the past couple days by not posting a hub and only leaving a couple answers/hub hops a day.  I thought that would be enough to keep me maintaining.   I don't really get this whole hubscore mess.

    i have not written any hub for a month but kept commenting and answering questions. My hubscore goes up and down too approximately 3-5 points. Yeah, a mystery!

    I haven't written a new hub in 5 months, and my page views are pretty low-- but hubberscore goes up and down as usual.  It doesn't matter really , and it does not seem connected to earnings.
    As I have said before: If we knew the 'secret', everyone would be at 100.
    It isn't meant to be known. I think the real purpose of scores is to make us keep coming back to check them.
    We spend way too much time discussing this:

    I have wondered the same thing, because I just haven't been up to writing. Plus my computer is up to it's old tricks again. Used to care about my score but not as much anymore. It's really not important.

    What a mystery the hub score is. All last week I was stuck at 90. I was active, doing more than I ever did in the past and my score stayed the same all week. Once, I went a month without writing a thing and when I went to look at my score it was up there at 96. Who knows what in the world goes on with the scores. I thought there a process, like being active in the community and stuff like that, but it seems like it really doesn't matter what I do. My score is my score and that's that. I have stopped worrying about it because it seems like there is really no rhyme or reason to the score. That doesn't mean I don't get tickled when it goes up. It's just... I no longer get down in the dumps when my score goes down.

    Carol, this seems to be clouded in mystery and something we shouldn't dwell on but often do! Certainly actively in the Q & A, forums and commenting all help or should and of course regular publishing. With the AP commitments my publishing has dramatically increased while my hubscore fluctuates with no rhyme or reason as I still try to be actively commenting. What I have noticed is my traffic has certainly increased with more regular publishing and my earnings so that has been more of a boost for me. It is still annoying to see scores drop when indications lead you to expect it to rise! Don't dwell on it if you can, you have written great articles since you first joined and are definitely a community player.
