    What determines the hubscores?

    I have had a horrible month, close to zero views on all my hubs and with kids starting school haven't been very active in community (questions, reading others hubs, etc) yet the scores of my individual hubs as well as my hubscore have gone up. I'm not complaining, just confused. With no traffic and no edits I would expect everything to go down. How does this work?

    Hi Heather!  I really don't understand the hubscore process.  But I've noticed that if I write 7 days a week, my scores go down.  I've started taking breaks over the weekends and some week days when I have a lot of appointments.  Overall, my scores go up.

    I've also noticed that if I spend more time answering questions and in the forums, my scores go up.

      I noticed when I write the score goes down too. It is very confusing.
      Thank you for your answer my friend! smile

    This is a question that I do not think can be answered. Only the powers that be at HP may have an answer. It is not based on how much one makes, I know this for a fact. My score used to be in the low 90's constantly when I was making far less than now. It is not based on how much you write. When I first started here, I wrote a hub per day. Then a hub per 3 days. Then a hub a week. No difference. It simply has no rhyme or reason.

      I agree. Views on my hubs are next to nothing which equals no earnings yet my score rises. I'm not complaining just confused on how this works. Thanks for your answer and best wishes that your earnings continue to climb.

    I am not exactly sure but I think the Hub score is based off of your activity in the community as well as other Hubbers votes. I know that people can vote you up or down.

      Thanks for your answer. smile
      Once I get this new schedule with my kids school and stuff into a routine I can become more involved again in the community. I do miss it anyway and keep seeing great hubs I don't have time to read. sad
