So if you unpublish low scoring hubs un featured for quality does that effect your scores over all?
I went through and unpublished those pesky not featured hubs the ones for lack of quality and set them aside to work on from time to time and republish. I got rid of every one below my over all score. But no effect on the over all score --- so do unpublished count in the over all score?
What do you mean when you say overall score? Your hubber score?
They are totally different. If you want to improve your hubber score, participate in the forums, hop some hubs, etc.
Both the hubber score and the average hubs score at the top of the account listing average scores
Wow, coming from a person with a score of 74,, yea lets listen to him.
This is not my main account; just registered 3 days ago. I should have mentioned that.
Buddy I participate and create so many forums and questions I am surprised they don't ask me to limit my inpute
I too realized that when our individual hub scores drops down, simultaneously, our hubber score tend to drop down too. But I didn't try to unpublish any of my hubs since even with low hub scores, they are all featured. So at the moment, I have no experience in telling if unpublished hubs would help with this matter at all. Hope some experienced user will provide with a proper answer here....
Eric, I do not think anyone has any idea how the "hubber score" works. Not even HP. As far as the "hub score" goes, I have deleted over 170 hubs for non-featured content. This has not affected the score at all. The only thing that I have seen change since the "big changes" are most's hubber scores have gone down.
Well, all of mine are featured, but I, myself, had chosen to unpublish a hub, and noticed that the score on the unpublished hub continued to climb higher and higher! I do not know if others were clicking on the link and that is why the individual hub score went up, but it sure did. It was one I did to enter a contest, and then I decided I was not happy with it, but it looks like I should have kept it published. I really do not understand all of this either, but I was told that if a hub is still featured to not delete it, even with the lower score, but ... you are talking about just unpublishing and it seems that it does still play into the score. Could be wrong though, but this has been my experience when I unpublished one hub.
Hi Eric, I have only about 5 or 6 hubs left here that I haven't moved. I have noticed no difference in my score. What seems to affect my score is not participating here with questions, hub hopping etc.
I would leave them published, because you never know when the longtail affect will suddenly make them relevant, which could boost your score. And like writingsolo said, do the other hundred things that make your score higher.
I was very serious in trying to get some responses that reflect what HP wants. But they do not seem to care because no one seems to know. So I will just do what I want. I am not here for money or scores, but I want HP to do well because I like it.

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

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 efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

I am looking for 5 things that will increase my hubber score.Assume there are enough articles to manipulate and about 200 featured but a ton "less than". The hubber does not network and just wants to raise the score. There is no angst or financial issue, just raise that score.Should...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...
