I'm confused, before I started updating my hubs my hubber score was 83. I edited a couple, and it went up to 84. I noticed today, it is 82.
I thought maybe the hub scores on the edited articles decreased - but after comparing my notes they all increased in hub score. The "List of Rare Diseases" even increased from 55 to 76...
Anyone have an idea what else could be lowering the hubber score?
No idea, but have your pages lost rank in Google? Have your page views dropped? Have you stopped earning an income?
No? Then do not worry about it.
Finish editing and submit a page to a vertical site every 15 days. You can start by submitting your gardening article to Dengarden, and then go from there.
It's always good to get your average score for your hubs up, but your personal score and the other scores will continually change.
Don't worry about it too much. Get your personal score up to or close to 90, and after that, don't worry about it much.
Just write great stuff. The best stuff you possibly can. The rest should take care of itself.
I don't think it worth paying attention to if it changes by a few points. My theory is that it varies a bit based on the amount of engagement you are getting on your hubs.
My Hubber score always goes down when I've updated or published an article. It'll bounce back, don't sweat it!
Like, not everyday someone is searching the same thing?
My hubber score went down after I published a new hub. The new hub has a score of 79 right now, it started at 64. It took my average score down and so my hubber score. My older hubs always reach a score of 100 after I made an edit, and then go down but are usually in the upper 90s.
Don't worry too much about it.
Thanks, I'm not too worried about it now as its not just something happening to me, and seems normal.
My new situation - choosing the next hub to edit and figuring out time to get it done (as I just had a client place a 110,000 word order due in 2 weeks). Haha, my hands may fall off.
That's 8000 words a day. I hope you don't have to do a lot of research for these articles.
This time it require some research, but usually they provide the information to make life a bit easier.
My most challenging order came in a couple years ago, 25,000 words with 2 day turnaround. I was up for 42hrs and worked for 38hrs. ^_^
First World problem. I wish I had those. No, I don't; enough already. You want something to worry about? Just wait, reality will hand it to you.
Reality hands it to me often... LOL
Content writing has been my main source of income for over 4 years now, and March - May tends to be the busiest months of the year, then it calms down again until November.
Last year, July - September was the worst by far, nearly no orders came in and being self employed means no unemployment.
Don't worry about it too much. Your score will change. Just keep creating quality material.

To those with decreased hubscores as a result of the new hubscore updates, has this eventmotivated or demotivated you from writing hubs? Has the new hubscore updates making you reconsider staying at HubPages or simply giving up and moving on?

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be. Today, I'd like to talk about the subsequent update to Hubber Score — the score...

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...

I wish there was a way to turn it off. It goes up and down without reason, and it can be very distressing.

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to go down or what is the problem?
