Hub scores dropping below 60.

    I am not on this site as much as I used to be. I was just looking at my account, and several of my hubs have dropped below 60.

    I'm not sure, but, wasn't a score below 75 a no follow? I am on a library computer, so I don't have time to look into all the rules.
    I'm just curious. They won't be deleted if they drop further will they? My best hubs are still around 80.

    My total hubscore also dropped from a 97 to an 77, and is now back up to 87. I have not made any money at all. At last check I think I had made 90 cents total.

      Don't worry unless your author/hubber score drops below 75.  And I think individual hubs only need to be 50 or above (or it might even be 40 - not sure).

      I don't think that $0.90 for your number of hubs/length of membership is at all unusual.  I've been here for nearly eight months and made about £22 ($33) in Adsense income, and I've got eight times as many hubs as you.  Apparently most people take 8-12 months to reach Adsense payout.

      You don't have many Hubs - I'm pretty sure that affects your Hubber Score.

      I wouldn't expect to earn much at all with only 7 Hubs.   If you're here to earn money, you need to write a lot more, and on subjects that people want to read about.

        Marisa has summed it up in a perfect nutshell.

    I am also new in HP. But I have seen that the hubs are not deleted even the hub score is below 60.
    Answer to your other question is not known to me and I am also curious to know the answers. I am keeping an eye on this thread for the response from experience hubbers.

    I only have a minute, so I cant look it up either, but if I remember correctly, the "no follow" has to do with your Hubber score dropping below 75, not your individual hubs.  I could be wrong though.

    My scores fluctuate daily, and I have a number below 75 right now that are either hubs that are personally important to me, but wouldn't really rank on a google scale, or they are seasonal hubs that are currently out of season.  I don't let it worry me.

    As for hubber scores, I'll never totally understand those.  Mine went up to a 93 this weekend, then, my hubscores went up, I had some time on my hands so I was able to read more hubs, comment and participate in the forums over the weekend, I got 3 new followers, and my score dropped to an 88.  Who knows.. I try no to worry about it as long as it stays above that magic 75.

    The numbers to watch for are an AuthorScore below 75 or an individual HubScore of 40 or lower.

    That's what triggers the nofollow tag being added to outgoing links.

      From what I've seen, it's trial and error. I've written hubs that I thought would take off and they just get 3 days a day while other hubs I didn't put much effort or thought into get 50 hits a day.
      Anytime you're worried about your score, rechannel the worry into writing another hub. I've just hit 30 hubs and 15 were written in the last 3 weeks. In the last three weeks my views have gone up by 1400%.
      So keep writing and don't worry about the details - it's the writing you need to concentrate on and the rest will sort itself out.
