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.

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 reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What should I read into that? Most people say that one should not concern...

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...

Has anyone noticed a marked change in their hub scores? I only noticed today so not sure if it happened today or in the recent past.. But some of my hubs have seen a marked increase from 70's and 80's into the 90's and even a 100...Is anyone else seeing a real change?

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 views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

Perhaps I am over thinking this but I need to ask. How are "scores" calculated? How does a Hub that has been nearly 500 times score 10 points lower than a Hub that has been read only 90 times? Anyone has any thoughts? Thanks!
