I have just had a few nice comments on one poetry hub - but the score seems to have gone down. Surely unless the commenteers are rating it down it should go up ? bewidered poet.
Hubscores fluctuate a lot, so I really wouldn't worry about it. Just keep writing and enjoying HubPages.
if your hub is not getting enough external traffic, then once the intitial interest/comments you get from HP die down, your score will also get affected. Even though the scores keep fluctuating, it's best to optimize hubs in a way that they contniue getting steady search engine traffic
thanks for that - but yes, I have hubs that are older elsewhere on here and they are steadily but slowly dropping. This is because I don't do any external stuff yet I expect. This is a little different in that this is a new hub which has gone up steadily ok - then I got four or five comments in a row and the score was lower after than before.
I noted next time I upped someone elses hub and that went up four points from my 'vote'. Weird or wot?
It's probably just coincidence. This Hub explains how the score is calculated:
However your score means nothing outside HubPages, so don't stress about it.
Remember that the HubPages community is very small. You'll get a spike of traffic from Hubbers, then when that dies down, you'll have a long lull until the search engines find your Hubs - if they do. Unfortunately poems don't often do well online.
That's because poetry is viewed as boring and uninteresting I am trying to change that with my style of writing. I will ressurrect poetry you guys wait and see lol...
This is good information. Thank you for asking about the comments. I have not yet had enough traffic to notice a difference yet, but I have just started.
One of the biggest factors that influences HubScore is traffic.
If a bunch of people visit, it gets a teeny boost and when that traffic increase stops, the score will then drop.
The more Hubs you have and the more traffic they draw, the more your scores are insulated from large changes.

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total hub count is now way down, so that instead of 10 more hubs to 100, I've now got to...

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!

My Hub "People Almost Met: Lily at the Pool" recently had a hub score of 100 and stayed at the level for about two weeks. Now it is in the 60's. It has lots of comments and about average views (for my hubs). Anyone know what I can do about this?

What is considered a good hub score? How do I improve my hub score?
by Catherine Giordano 2 years ago
My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is recommend to get a good score.It is disheartening not to get a feedback. For...
