I can't believe that my score has dropped 4 points today and that this 89 is the lowest it has been for over a year!
What's the deal... and don't tell me how irrelevant it is!
I find it interesting that when 5 of my hubs were unpublished by HP (for mistakingly having the wrong link in them ) and I complained to the 'team' about why does it take them 5 Days to Republish a re-submitted hub.... Down goes my score!
What's the Real Deal Huh?
I wouldn't guess about your situation, but I do know that when I've unpublished Hubs on my own there seems to be a drop in HubScore. Maybe they (or the system) doesn't "like" taking stuff off the site. We've heard that scores about what you "bring to the site". Maybe "taking away from the site" by unpublishing amounts to just that. I go back and forth between the same 5 point range all the time.
Yep thanks Lisa...
It's really annoying.. like having squeeky wheel in a new car.. You change the tyres, give it to the mechanics etc and it still squeeks.. but this time at 51 mph.. instead of 30 mph as before!
So yeah.. what to do when you do everything you can to 'participate' and bring traffic to the site (to the best of your knowledge ability). What happened to people respectfully giving you definative answers huh?
Hm.... I always read the scores backwards, so that would be a 98 in my book!
my score is always fluctuating as well, plus 5 here, minus 5 here. after looking at your profile and some of your hubs...i don't think you have anything to worry about. after all, people enjoy what you do, and that's all that should matter. you're hubber score will follow suit soon enough
Cheers Sofs... Thanks... Maybe
Cheers JD... Thanks for that
I think the hubscore algorithm was originally designed so well that it came alive, and now it lives just to piss us off. That's just my opinion though. Could be wrong.
well I was wondering the same thing. I've noticed the 100 score hubs, since I've been on anyway, just always seem to stay at 100. What's up with that?
Are you talking about hubs or hubbers? I can tell you this, neither my 100 profile score nor my few 100 hub scores stay very long. They jump up and down like everyone's!
I would imagine they (hubs) are not only bringing views but clicks.

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

Who thinks we should ask to reinstate a page dedicated to locating hubbers by hubber score. Beginning with 100-0.We once had such a page here that made the hubber score much more relevant, and we could at least get a chance to locate the top hubbers who most definitely deserved high praise for...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Should I leave an unpublished hub unpublished if the score remains high?I unpublished a hub as I was not happy with it myself, but the score continues to remain high. I never intend to publish it in the future, and I know the score will eventually drop due to no views, but will leaving it...

Is HubPages trying to discourage its writers and get them to quit writing?Every time I publish a hub my Hubber score goes down then it goes up by 1-2 points and then down by 1-2 points. Then when I am not on here for a day or two it goes down by more than 2 points. This is very...
