New Hubber scores - end result?
With yesterday's new Hubber scores, a couple of questions come up and I realize no one has a perfect crystal ball but here is what I am curious about:
1. Approximately how many Hubbers left above the 85 with no follow? I am on the brink obviously so I feel I must ask.
2. I imagine this will change the revenue dramatically for those below the do follow threshold?
3. Social engagement seems now to be the name of the game so this will promote controversial hubs more than informational hubs? If so, what is the internet world coming to? This scares me. Please clarify this new world.
Google is focusing on the "author rank" on a person to combat spam etc etc... End result is that you have to get social links in to get a higher score. At the end of the day the results on google will be determined on "author rank" ... Keep only your quality content and spread it on social media.

I guess hub pages is aligning itself to the way forward.
I am not pretty sure. Actually I have yet to study the matter. However, google is emphasizing more on social media presence.
Social media likes of facebook and tweeter are driving traffic more than other sources.
You make an important point and the fact that I have ignored Facebook for years is haunting me. I have vowed month after month to be more active on Facebook - you may have finally convinced me. Thanks for the reply - greatly appreciate it.

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

Hubber scores do not reflect anything but some weird algorithm that is not in sync with anything. My score just went sixteen points down. My views are up and I am featured way more that 140 times.But what I noticed was Billybuc. He is an 88. What? He is the highest ranking site at Hub pages. This...

Just amazing--sitting at an 80--publish a hub and drop to 67.This place is really starting to suck jelly beans. I knew there was a good reason I had started writing elsewhere. Hmm, I have clients praising my writing up and down and paying me anywhere from 28-60 dollars an hour, and here where I...

While we Hubbers often tell each other not to worry about each other's scores, and we really shouldn't, here's a quote from an official HubPages document (regarding the Quality Assessment Process) that shows scores have at least some practical value:"Articles written by authors with very high...
