Does anyone really know how the Hubber Score works?
I have moved all of my hubs out but 3 and my Hubber score has gone up 2 points! Weird.
I have no idea. Two days ago my score was 100 for 5 minutes. My individual hub scores changed this week. About 1/2 went up, the others went down. One of them is supposedly a high ranking one with google, so I'm not sure how that happens either.
From what I can tell, hubbers that write for a particular niche market do very well and usually have the highest scores. That may not be true for everyone, but it is what I have observed.
I have no idea. Mine has been 97 for two months now with no fluctuation.
I've never completely understood it either. But recently I've come to notice some factors that may affect hubberscore:
1) Consistent activity; not necessarily frequent but regular. Consistently participate in the community.
2) Hub-hopping on a regular basis; choose a day of the week to hub-hop and rate some hubs.
3) Update your hubs regularly and often. Updating improves hubscore, and will help hubberscore, too.
4) Writing new hubs and letting them simmer before publishing immediately will improve your hubberscore.
5) There are more secrets but I will let you discover them as you keep writing and publishing more hubs.
It does not work! I recently returned to hubpages. I wrote for 4 years. I got disgusted and deleted hundreds of my hubs. I returned and wrote a hub and my hub score went down. It seems that in my absence the powers that be loved me more!!

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?

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...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

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...

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...
