How does someone with over 400 hubs, 900 followers, and over 20 months of being a member get a score of 1? I saw a one next to there photo.... how does that happen.
I know which Hubber is meant, but I'm not sure if it's right to name her / him on a Forum Thread. She / He does have 947 Followers and 421 Hubs.
I've wondered that myself. I figured this certain person broke a rule and was being penalized.
Why does this type of privacy matter so much on a public webpage's forum where names are not private at all?
I'd rather not say who it is... it isn't good forum etiquette, or nice to point anyone out. Sorry.
Perhaps hubpages found something nefarious they were doing and reset their author score down to 1 manually.
One reason could be that every single one of their hubs is repeated somewhere else on the Internet, either because the hubber in question has plagiarised them or because they've duplicated their own content from other sites as hubs.
I think you hit the nail on the head there
I have seen folks with no hubs, fans or anything else with higher scores.
Does a hubber earn a score of 1 if he/she is banned or deletes the account? That would be my guess.
Then the Hubber would no longer be a Hubber, and not exist at all on HubPages. There would be no profile, no score - nothing. Gone.
Recently, a certain hubber proclaimed that he would be requesting a deletion of his account. Two days later, his old posts had a "1" next to his profile name.
I thought that if a hubber was found to be stealing content, they'd be dumped, or at least the offending hub would be removed...
could be due to a loooong period of inactivity. I watched the scores of friends of mine that had left the site but left their profiles and hubs up, drop continuously. Of course it takes a while to get that low. Could have been some questionable behavior that accompanied the inactivity too.
Who are we to judge?
Whoever this hubber is, if his/her,s account has not been closed by hubpages, then he/she cannot be breaking any rules.
Why don,t you ask his/her followers or read some of the hubs jn question.
Or maybe better still ask the hubber instead of making forum posts.
Gee that rant made me feel good.
Getting a HubScore of 1 is a lot like drinking a milkshake through a straw.
You just have to suck really hard.

One of the advantages of having an overall hubber score of 75 or above is that we get 'Dofollow' links on our hubs, which are considered more valuable by Google when deciding search results.My question is, if my hubber...

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? ...

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?

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...

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....

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...
