My hubscore has dropped to 83 i think the lowest in three years yet my no of visitors remains pretty much the same as normal ~ work that out ?
No idea. I have given up trying to understand it
does not seem to affect anyone else at this point in time ?
Pcunix, with your algorithmic knowledge, it becomes even more eerie... :8->
Can't. Mine bounces like a ball but I gain views and followers. I pretty much ignore the scores as long as I like what I write.
I am much newer, and never really understand the "secret" stuff for why HubScores drop, but my Ad Sense is down too...so maybe if the Hog's Win, I will be back in business...
I understand your score would becuase you have been a member such a short time as such the equaion they use on hubpages would do this but as I say i have been three years hear & this is the lowest store in at least 2 and a half...
I am new and I am sure the answer is somewhere, but not sure why the scores matter?
They really don't unless you want to be able to use hubs for DoFollow links for other sites you may have. I think individual hubs needs to 40 or higher, and your overall author score needs to be (and don't quote me on this) 75 or higher to allow DoFollow links. Other than that, who cares?
As far as making money, it doesn't matter that much. Though the better quality your hubs, the higher your score, and if you produce quality hubs, you do gain higher standing with google. The only place the score has any real impact is here in the hubpages community. Those with higher scores are seen as more experienced, quality writers who are active in the community. It's a sort of a benchmark for the overall quality of the hubber. But, it isn't all in how much time you have been here. As most hubbers will tell you, the score is calculated from your average hub scores, your involvement in the forums, your hubkharma, your mother's birthdate, the last 4 digits of your SS# (for the US hubbers), and a complex amount of other data that hubpages has accumulated about you. I am kidding on some of that, though.
being active in the forums will help raise the score, if it is important to you and commenting on other hubs too. Fanning/following other hubbers and not commenting on any of their hubs will lower it.
Just curious , does your tenure here have a say on the stability of scores?
Nah. None at all I don't think. But they count all your toes and fingers as you write your hubs. It is an algorithm no one knows how to interpret really.
Exactly. My score still fluctuates all over the place. I barely pay it any attention any more. I have a second account where my score is pretty much the same thing, and I hardly ever check that one anymore. So, who knows how they really calculate the scores...
thanks for the info Irohner rawlus and Anna Marie(that was hilarious, btw).
So as far as I sit right now, I won't worry about it and I'll focus on the writing.
OK, newbie all over the place -
What is a DOFollow link? Imma gonna google it.
Simone, basically, here are what dofollow/nofollow links are:
Dofollow - These impress search engines more because their crawlers will follow the links.
Nofollow - this is a note in the code to crawlers not to follow links and/or to not put any value in outgoing links, meaning they don't count towards your pages worth in search engine eyes.
I have a link to a post about backlinks on my profile, check that out for some more information.
thanks WryLit - that was helpful. Links are a mystery to me.
I will read your backlink post.
I was off hubpages for 3 days and my hub score dropped 5 points to 84. So I guess hubpages needs to be an everyday commitment? How much time to I need to stay in the forums everyday to keep my hubscore level at around 90?

Do-follow and No-follow backlinks affect our page ranking in google. Is there any relation to our hubscore here on Hubpages? I've been told that there is probably no affect on our hubscore in relation to our backlinks. What do you think? Also has anyone monitored one of their pages and frequently...

My title should have read another hub author score question . I have noticed this hubber that puts up a lot of hubs, however, they are all very short, most less than 100-200 words. The type of hub that can be put up in less than 15 mintues. And, the majority of their individual hub scores...

After I improving some hubs, the hubs are no more featured. Which was earlier featured and not now. I have made the improvement. I am wondering why it is no more featured?Also, my overall hub score is also going down.

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...

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be. Today, I'd like to talk about the subsequent update to Hubber Score — the score...

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 efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...
