I placed a new Hub on the site today, and immediately I received a score of 50 to start out. I returned to the computer three hours later and had received about seven comments, but my score had been reduced to 47 and then 48.
We will never know exactly how Hub management arrives at their numbers, but this seems senseless.
I think they should do away with the scoring altogether. It's a worry we don't need and causes a lot of people to second-guess themselves.
Don't feel bad Harvey. Yesterday my hub started at 50 and dropped to 46. Today it is on its way back up and might have hit 80 by now. Hubscoring is so random and I will never understand the logic behind it. I just thought they did'nt like me !
Ya know, I don't get it either, but then again, I'm new.. I don't think I'm allowed to get it until I've been around for at least seven months.
Still, I figure that if I've written the best article that I can, then scores don't matter. I think there's more important things to worry about than how some computer guru decides to slap a number on my forehead.
Never judge a HubScore by how it starts out. Give it three days to a week and then see where it is.

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...
