The question is who not?
So, why not posting some ideas that can better the scoring system and help HP getting rid of tons of substandard hubs?
My recommendations are:
1. Hubs should be at least of 400 words. Poets can write a couple of poem or make an explanation or background of the poems. Can't they? Same can do the artists.
2. No visible grammatical or spelling mistake in hubs will be allowed. MS word type text capsule with grammar and spell checker? Thus we can get rid of spun and barely written in English Hubs. Not sure if it is possible.
3. No more than 10 following allowed in one day.
4. Hubber with less than 75 hubber score wouldn't be allowed to create more than one forum post within 10 minutes. Forum spammer will get tired at least.
5. A text to amazon/ebay ads ratio? 40 ads for 400 words and then 10 more ads for every additional 100 words.
Just some thoughts
Post you suggestions, please.
many spammers sign up and start posting links of outbound domains in each and every forum.
Thanks, I was scared you were talking about me!
Oh, I was just asking for feedback for my scores after a month, and I thought my hubscore was 73 (that's the figure average at the bottom of my hub). I just went back and corrected it because I just realized it might be the one that is attached next to my name and photo which is 92.
So, which one is the hub score?
And what is the name of the other one?
Hub score in the individual score of the hub and author score is the score of the hubber that is shown on your profile pics though when we move the mouse over the scores in both cases it is shown as hubscore. Bit confusing but we can understand what is what, aren't we?
You are a high quality hubber and noway a spammer. Cheers
The HubScore should be computed by combining a static and a dynamic part. The static part of the score comes from analyzing the Hub itself: the keywords, the contents and the tags. This is without considering any traffic. The dynamic part looks at feedback, number of comments and daily/monthly traffic. A Hub that scores badly on contents but still draws a lot of traffic each month can still score well.
HP already have their system for substandard hubs.
Why should other hubbers be concerned with this subject?
Lets just get back to the reason I personally joined hubpages.Enjoying writing and having some fun along the way.

Evidently, hubber score has absolutely nothing to do with earnings. Yesterday was my biggest earning day EVER on HP, yet my hubber score is the lowest it's been in quite a while. That's okay - I'll take high earnings over a high score any ole day!

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...

I just published a hub about quetzals I used some scientific terms and some foreign words. Do the stupid bots think they are misspellings? ( A human would understand what they mean.) I can't think why else this great hub (I checked off all the boxes and proof-read) gets a starting score of...

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...

still today, I am unable to understand how the Hubscore works? As sometimes, I don't do anything and it gets increased, and sometimes, in spite of more Hubtivity it decreases like anything?
