I have an odd situation going on. I've been sitting on a few articles for awhile now, and just started finishing them up. I've also been working hard on revision. Some of my articles are at 100. They are all featured--I don't have many online, but they're all featured and a few are on the "special" websites. In addition, I'm attracting more readers.
So, while all of this is going on, my profile rating is gradually dropping. Is that logical?
The profile scores bounce around without any logical reason, it seems. Most of us have learned to ignore them. (Though the first time we reach 100, seems like a big deal.)
If you are in the 80's and 90's, most people think that is a good thing. A better indicator of success for most people is a growing number of views and increasing earnings, but even that can be variable.
Overall, it looks like you are doing very well. Don't give too much attention to the numbers, just write.
The profile rating is put there just to torture us.
The consensus seems to be unanimous to just ignore it.
This is how I understand Profile scores:
When we publish a new article its hub-score is fairly low to begin with until it gains traction with the search engines. This low hub-score influences the average hub-score which is a part of the equation for our profile score.
I also noticed over time that when traffic to certain articles decreases (and thereby lowers their individual hub-scores) the profile score also goes down.
Another thing I noticed is that when I am more actively participating in forums and comments on other people's articles, my profile score goes up a little. But I am not sure about that one.
We've had endless discussions on hub-scores and profile scores over the years and it wouldn't be time efficient to start it all up again.
While I find hub-scores useful to check which articles need some TLC, the advice you have been given to ignore profile scores is a sound one.
