My hub score total does not reflect anything? Should it at least be an average?
I have a cumulative (I think) and average (I think) score but any person with average math skills could see that is is much lower than any average or even close to a medium. What does it mean really. Perhaps a bad program that should be easy?
Shameful and makes me look stupid to write here. Forget the score the fact HP cannot do it right is the shame.
What do you say?
Hi Eric, I'm not sure we can say that HP isn't doing it right if we don't understand what they are doing. I think they probably have a lot of factors that go into calculating the score. Until or unless we know what those factors are, we should withhold judgement.
My hub score drops little by little with each flash fiction story I write. I try to throw in articles that HP and Google will like in order to keep my score up, but it is an uphill battle. Actually, I shouldn't care about the numbers. It's probably simple pride that makes me try to salvage the hubber score.
Eric, you have awesome articles. Lots of people enjoy reading what you write. Keep doing what got you a good reputation here and let the things that bug you go. Sorry, I don't mean to preach, but you've done well on this site and I'd like to see that continue.
There were two hubs I published that did not meet all of the suggested checklist marks, and the result was an unpublished hub do to quality. This dramatically effected my score both times. The content can not be promotional, must have close to 1200 words with reasonable grammar, 3 pictures and 2 other boxes (1 video and 1 question box for example). Also to keep up your score you must occasionally comment, ask a question or answer a question.
I highly encourage you to continue stressing out about the score. Your hubberscore indicates your worth as a human being. If you had a higher score, you would look less stupid for sure. It is a shame.

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is...

I just published my 120th hub today, and finally my hubscore went up to 96! I've watched it gradually creep on up from the low 80s (when a bunch of Squidoo lenses transferred over, maybe even high 70s). I...

hub:/hub/Non-Destructive-TestingJust wondering like if there's anything I can do as a user to "hop" older hubs or something. I often come across hubbers with extremely low hub scores (like 1 or 5) and I was...

I've heard to disregard that but I'm still a little curious. Honestly I don't know how the score is even decided but those of you that have a lot of followers or have been able to make money, what is your average score...
