My Hubber score is stagnant (and has gone down) so I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong. Some of my hubs have pretty low scores... would deleting them help my score? Is there a minimum threshold for deletion? Thanks!
Sometimes I find new and pertinent info to add to the hub and sometimes I just delete.
There is a fine line, sometimes hubs get hot at certain times.
I just had a look and your scores are not low at all--want to get your hubber score up?
Put a pic in your profile and dress up your profile and keep on writing hubs and writing and writing
Thanks for the feedback. That sounds a lot simpler than some of the hubs I've read that talk about 50 different variables!
Thanks cuz I have 3 hubs and am new and this is great info to know.
Welcome to HubPages!
I would say your problem is in the design of your hubs and it's short length of each of your latest 6 hubs, which I have reviewed.
I would highly recommend you visit the Extreme Hub Makeover Forum thread, and post about 3 links of hubs you would like advice(critiquing) on.
One of the major factors in Authorscore(hubberscore) is on content, originality and length. Not to mention, some other factors, but those three mostly.
I do agree with Cagsil too, adding pics and videos and more written content to hubs can help much too, but be yourself and hub,hub,hub--you'll get it any questions you may have, feel free to mail me directly and I will try to help.
Its a learning thing and we all went thru it at one time or another.
While all of the advice you've been offered in this thread is good advice, none of it is going to work for you for one major reason.
Neither deleting nor working to improve your low scoring Hubs is going to have any effect on your overall HubScore until you stop engaging in the penalty-incurring, overly-promotional outlinking behavior that you have going on in your Hubs.
I suggest you read the FAQ and take the time to understand what you are doing wrong.
I think that deleting a hub to raise your score is putting the cart before the horse. Even a low scoring hub will get some traffic and the goal here is traffic (and/or advertsing income) not a high score.
I would just improve the low scoring hubs. Usually that means making them longer, but most of yours seem to have enough content. The problem is they're boring to look at. Break up that content and maybe try to add some relevant modules. Too much text on a page without anything else is likely to cause a high "bounce rate", which means people will find your hub and then immediately leave.

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...

Hubber scores do not reflect anything but some weird algorithm that is not in sync with anything. My score just went sixteen points down. My views are up and I am featured way more that 140 times.But what I noticed was Billybuc. He is an 88. What? He is the highest ranking site at Hub pages. This...

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to go down or what is the problem?

It is advantageous to delete one's own low scoring hubs that have little traffic. I figure getting rid of the low score would increase the average of the rest of one's hubs.What do you think?

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 have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?
