I'm new on hubpages and I'm still a little fuzzy on hubscores. If you have unpopular hubs will they lower your score? I'm wondering because I don't want articles that hurt me to stay up, but if they don't I'd like to keep them because I put time and effort into them and would rather keep them.
Welcome to HubPages! One thing that I notice is HubScore depends on the quality of your article. Even you might be writing the hot topics but if there is no quality, people can vote you down.
Again, HubScore will go up and down during the days and weeks. So it is normal if something like that happen.
I think you should not worry and just prepare writing something quality and you will be just fine
There are two kinds of scores: each Hub has a score (Hubscore) and you have a Hubber Score, that appears on your avatar.
If your Hubs are low-scoring they will affect your hubber score. The thing to do is revise and improve them!
You can edit Hubs as often as you like so there's no reason not to make them better. Think of a Hub as the kind of article you'd like to read in a magazine. It's longer and more informative than a blog post - at least 400 words and often much longer. And it must be your own, original writing, not copied from anywhere else on the internet (even if it's your own work you're copying).
Welcome to HP.

I have been on Hubpages for almost 3 years now! I have never experienced such a low HubberScore of 43-45, it has always been 70+, even in my worst days. What's even worse for my current situation, it is that this dreadful experience does not seem to have an end, it has been like this for almost 2...

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...

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...

Hey everyone! My name is Brandon and I am a new Hubber from Houston, Texas! I have a brief question about hubscores on the profile and on my articles and how they differ.For example, I noticed today as people read my hubs, my hubscore would rise on the article, but also noticed I still have a...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?
