Hub Score dropped overnight

    NunezWillLearnposted 8 years ago

    I dont know what I did but my hub score dropped from 81 to 60. Can anyone tell me the reason and suggest me an effective resolution for getting back to the prior position.

      Having a look through your list of hubs there are 6 which would be a violation to Google Adsense ToS. re: casino related.

      People have been flagging your Hubs happened to me bigtime when I dared to write about a certain religious Group, unfortunately for them they employ me from time to time, and I just cranked up the Account as you do.
      I just thumbed up 2 so hope it helps well written and I enjoyed them. Hubscore means little I am told so don't stress opn the small stuff.
      I can't imagine the mentality of the Fl;aggers, unless they are the Team, they would have to be seen to do the right thing if you feel that it is malicious make a complaint.

      Look, if anyone can tell you don't worry I am the guy.  My score was an 89 when I opened my mouth in here and some people who didn't like what I had to say turned me in to the admin.  On two separate occasions my hubs were pulled off the air and my score went from 89 to 59 . . . not just one hub score but MY score.
      There are many things here having to do with scores that don't mean sh*t in reference to your actual writing skills.
      There are idiots with hubs that have high scores and yet it is a struggle to read them because the so-called writer cannot speak proper English or use spelling and grammar checking software.
      Do NOT worry about it.
      RE: the 75 point "rule" of Hub Pages: That's nothing to stress about too much either.  I don't buy into that whole "they don't consider your hubs quality hubs" crap. When my score was an 89 I had more "rule-bending" material out there than ever.
      (Not that I intentionally post a lot of really hot SEXY PICTURES with MY HUBS and show near NAKED WOMEN --it just sometimes turns out that way.)
         NOW I don't and my score is lower.  I was penalized and then made corrections they found suitable.  So judging my hubs to be of a lesser quality NOW would be silly.  If anything my hubs are more what they want NOW than they ever were. So I don't buy into that whole "they don't think your hubs are good enough" crap.  You shouldn't either.  That cutoff is set at 75 but there is certainly some other thought behind it.  Logic would indicate that.
      Scores also go around the holidays down because the non-pathetic people out there have better things to do than read our hubs.  Plus, I think we all lose up to 3 points per new hub when we first publish.  I don't know why.
      Do not worry.  I get paid to actually write articles/features elsewhere.  I just have fun here.  YOU should, too!

    Have you check if it has been duplicated elsewhere? If it has been copied on another site and HP registers this well duplicate content here is a no no and results in a low score. Try taking the first few lines of text on this hub and paste it into a search and see what comes up. Good content from here has been stolen before stupidly roll

      If it's been published at HubPages first and then duplicated elsewhere, as far as I know, there is no HubScore penalty.

    I sympathize with you NunezWillLearn...about half of my Hub scores dropped under 75 in the last few days.
    I have no idea what is going on...it's almost like a " Google-slap" but inside Hub Pages.
    And I checked a few of NunezWillLearn's Hubs, and they all look original to me. I didn't see any duplications.
    I don't know if this is a glitch, or maybe some kinda change in rankings.
    Or maybe just the way things go.

      I have had one or two of my hubs stolen before and posted on another site which is why it was the first thing I thought of.

    relacheposted 8 years ago

    Looking at a few of your Hubs, the content doesn't seem very well-rounded.  By that I mean, you've got some text, but not much in the way of helpful links to sites that could offer your readers more info, you don't seem to have any videos, no polls, etc.

    Here's my advice on building content that improves your scores,

      So you mean I should add some links as reference. aah! you know what, I was under the impressions that putting links would reduce my hub scores. Thanks Friend I would surely try that.

  5. habee profile image93
    habeeposted 8 years ago

    I need to do some of that, too. I never link to anywhere else - just to my related hubs on HP. And I've never included a poll. I keep forgetting to!

    Don't worry, it happens to me all the time and I believe it's perfectly fine/normal.

    I keep writting hubs and trying to be active elsewere, but my score always drop. Last time after publishing 4 hubs I dropped from 91 score to 88. It is very flustrating for me.

    I must do something bad.

      No seriously they do flag them. For all sorts of reasons, did one on acrylic nails, and made heaps of corretions, still couldn't get the thing up running so I flagged it in the end.

  10. billyglen profile image61
    billyglenposted 8 years ago

    Don't feel bad.. I have gone from a hub score of 89 to 1.. yep you read that right.. "1" as in "uno".. lol. What the hell? I go from .14 a click on EPN to .00 in a few days and now this? What's really kinda funny (to keep from crying) is that I did nothing different in either place.

    Oh well.. it's not like I was making a living off of either one. Thank God..

    Just saw some of your messages and wanted to try and make everyone feel a little better.

    I will read up and see what's going on. Something must have changed. I only have a handful of hubs.. maybe that's part of it. I do have a few that I am probably over promoting too so I will add some more content and a few more hubs.. see it that helps.

    I am trying to be a good sport about it.. (as I am kicking the dirt.. lol)

    Good luck everyone

    It seems crazy that your score would drop so low -- it doesn't look like you just came back after two years and dropped loads of spam! 

    What is going on!?!   yikes

    You know what's really kinda wild too is one of my handful of hubs has held the #1 Google spot for over a year now with several pretty good keywords. It normally runs in the high eighties by itself and it still runs around 70, and my newer hubs are hanging around 60 and they come up with "1"... lol. Now to their defense I do need to make some changes on my newer hubs to scale down my promotions, but DAAnng.. lol

    I have seen hubs that suck  a heck of a lot more than some of mine and they have much better scores.

    It just seems to me that a lot of sites (trend) are making it even harder to do business with. Instead of doing things to help you succeed, or take extra steps to ensure their customers, readers, etc. are informed they just make decisions and put the hammer down. Now I may have missed something (email, notice, etc) but my point is you take steps to take care of the hand that feeds you. These types of sites are going to be a dime a dozen in a few more months.

    Does this type of governing sound familiar?
