    Oh, I work and work then I publish and my score goes down - why isn't there a grace period - this is so disheartening.  Just when I think I am making progress my score dumps.


    Should I never publish unless the new Hub is above a certain score?

    Please help!

      My score seems to go up to 97 when I had no activity then goes down when I do. Ironic is it not?

    Well it happens to me constantly.  Hub score nose dives whenever I sneeze.  Hang in there, the screwy system rating the hubs is nuts anyway.

    It doesn't matter what your score is...

    I find that if I write a hub and not publish it for a few days the score does start to rise. And usually, if I publish right away the score starts to rise in a day or two.

    You are making a false attribution.  You can't correlate score fluctuations to direct actions, as admin has repeatedly said that's not how the system works (unless you are a spammer).

    The thing to do is to keep focused on publishing high quality content on a consistent basis. If you do that, and participate in the community, you'll see your hubscore and your authorscore rise over time.

    Would you rather publish 30 hubs in a month and make some decent cash from them after a few weeks (and see your hubscore slump).


    Publish 3 hubs in the month, make a few cents but see your hubscore rise to 100?

    I know what I'd prefer!

    Yah- don't worry too much about your HubScore - it changes here and there and is kind of random sometimes.  Just ignore it and focus on your writing and you'll find things get a lot easier!  That's what I did when I first started on the site and my HubScore seems to be doing fine enough big_smile

    I agree GMAGoldie, don't put your knickers in a twist over your huscore, it's not worth it.  It's more important to pay attention to publishing well written hubs cause that is important.

    I too believe in writing good and useful content, than sitting and worrying about the changing of hubscore. It will come and go repeatedly,  but publishing more useful hubs are the ones we have to bother about.

    I find my hubscore goes down very often after I publish a new hub. I used to be worried about it but I am not any more because it always goes back up after a day or so. I am more concerned with getting new hubs published than whether my score drops.

    I have to agree.  MY score went from 91 - to 88 then back up to 90.  I've published 32 Hubs.  Received nice comments...had over 1,000 hits.  What am I missing?  But after reading all of your comments here on the Forum...I'm going to FORGET ABOUT IT...and just enjoy doing... what I do best...WRITING!
