When I first started out with hubpages I followed hundreds of people, because I wanted them to follow me back, because I though that's how you get readers to come to your hub. I recently found out that following a lot of people reduces your hubscore, plus I cancelled my updates on the hubbers I follow because I was getting so many in my inbox. Now, I have found that following too many people is a major hassle and I just want to get rid of all of them. Un-Following them one by one takes a lot of time and I have to keep refreshing my browser to go back to the list of hubbers and my computer slows down as a result. What should I do?
One by one.
It would take me about two minutes to unfollow everyone I have ever fanned.
Amazing.... you are blaming your fans for your own poor ratings?
Fanning too many people in a short amount of time can have detrimental effects on ones HubberScore.
But I doubt that its permanent. HubberScore will right itself after a while, provided you've got original content and quality traffic.
Your 'fanned' hubbers page is best ignored, but you could use a customized homepage to trail hubbers whose hubs interest you.
Thank you for your insight everyone. I guess I will try to find other ways to boost my hubscore such as being more active on hubpages by participating on the forums and commenting on other people's hubs.
The way I see it, we all follow hubbers one hubber at a time.
So why not unfollow them one at a time as well?
I know in this fastfood age we have no patience for such things, but if you had the time to follow them in the first place, you need to put in some time too to unfollow. Hope that makes sense.
I have no idea following hubbers can make one's score low though.
Godspeed in your endeavor.
Wow, with a 65 score and 137 Hubs I thought your writing must suck, but I was completely wrong. You have very well written Hubs, so maybe fanning all those people did screw you over.

One of the advantages of having an overall hubber score of 75 or above is that we get 'Dofollow' links on our hubs, which are considered more valuable by Google when deciding search results.My question is, if my hubber score temporarily falls below 75, do we lose those dofollow links? (In other...

Can anyone tell me the actual meaning of the number that appears and keeps on changing on the profile pictures of each hubber.

I am not sure about this and I know there are hundreds of forum posts where people complain that their hubberscores dropping and they don't know why.My hubberscore just dropped 4 points in 24 hours after steadily climbing for the last 2 weeks and the key is to determine what I have been doing...

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

In the past four months I have had increasing views, higher CPMs, have been adding articles (and deleting some losers), good Amazon sales...and my Hubber score has dropped from 97 to 91 in the past few weeks! I don't get it...anybody else seeing this problem or can the team explain...

What are your reasons for unfollowing a hubber?I went to the list of hubbers I follow, and I found out that many are not active on hubpages. I unfollowed everyone who has not published anything in the last 4 months. I also unfollowed the hubbers who do not comment on my hubs.
