I have not the vaguest clue how hub scores are determined in totality. Of course I have a general idea.
What I don't get is my score was a stable 91 for a veery long time and then all of a sudden in one hour I dropped 3 points.
Anyone know why that would be? Doesn't really matter that much, but I am really very curious.
I figure that score is determined by several factors, none of which have anything to do with how MANY hubs you have written (I have written a lot in a few months because I like to; it's fun!)
SO - here is how I figure it goes: Traffic - big. Comments - pretty big.
Content - HUGE but still doesn't help if no one is reading you or leaving a comment or giving you any thumbs up.
Thumbs up - probably pretty important, but from different IP's, obviously clicking on your own isn't going to *do* anything.
Copying material - BIG down.
Poorly written advertising short pointless drivel - BIG down. (And there certainly is a lot of it.) I don't understand why they don't *weed out* better.
Getting flagged...I'm not sure. Flagging can be done for purely malicious reasons....
Do you think I'm close?
You're just imagining things. It's completely normal for HubScores to go up and down by as much as 10-15 points over the course of a day, due to just regular ol' visits and visitor interactions. Some move up and down a lot, others not so much.

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...

I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself (...

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...

I really have not been too concerned about scores till recently since that darn HubPro was created. I think HubPro is totally done the wrong way. Editing should NOT be done without our consent and should NOT be done IN...
