7 of my top 10 hubs have down arrows? Can this be happen by a few people negative voting on all of my hubs?
College Politico is right. Those down arrows don't have to do with HubScore or voting, but with traffic. HubScore depends partly on traffic, but on a number of other things as well, so it is fairly fluid and will vary from day to day or hour to hour.
Those down/up arrows aren't because of the votes cast on your hubs. They are from an increase or decrease in traffic to your hubs. The only way to see the voting results is in the weekly email but that doesn't break up the votes for each hub, it only gives you the total up/down votes.
But I have had a good number of visitors this week and yet all of my scores are going down?
Thanks for the reply
My hubs go up and down and if no one looks they start going down I some where fro somewhere looks they will probably drit North.
Keep on gringing them out.
I'm sort of new-- but I found that some of my high hubs took a down turn-- now they are going up again. I think the indicators are pretty sensitive. People may look in initially-- then later, when you post another one that gets some attention, other people look up your past work. Looks to me like you are doing great.
I'm thinking it's not good to get hung up on the numbers-- just enjoy, and keep adding.
(Thanks for being "funnee".)
I am sure voting (up or down) does have positive or negative impact on your hub score. I don't know how much though. It was a shame they took away the stats on the number of thumbs up and thumbs down you had received.

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

This is what I have observed with my hubscore. After publishing a hub and leaving comments on other hubs, I get lots of traffic but the hubscore falls by the hour. When I stay away from HubPages for a few days, and the...

During my time on HP I have head/seen/read a lot of speculation about the scoring system. I have given up trying to figure out my profile score but my articles are different. As I understand it the more views, vote up...

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...

I have strived over the last 5 weeks to produce as many hubs as i can but to a high quality. I heard at first that if go around serial 'following' this can penalise your hubscoreI added a few people but then cut down...
