    When the hub score reaches between 90 - 93, why does it start falling even though the flow of traffic is still 'up there'?

    I have a hub that kept rising from the minute I created it, never dropped a point with a daily steady flow of traffic. It wen to 91 and by the morning back down to 88 even though the traffic remains at a good level.

    The scoring algorithm thing, does it have a certain criterion for when a hub gets to 90 or over?

    From what I've been hearing from others and what I've experienced, that score seems to fluctuate quite a bit. I know it drops when you post a new hub but it should go up again fairly quickly.

      Hi Danette, I am not talking about my personal author score, as I said it's about the hub score.

      There is confusion about hubberscore and hubscore. I am not talking about my hubberscore/authorscore. I am referring to the score a hub gets when you create it.

    I have noticed a pattern in mine.  Whichever Hub is highest (and that varies) reaches its highest score on either Thursday or Friday, then all of the scores drop down somewhat until the next week.  It has become so noticeable and regular for me that I don't pay attention to it any more.  I just consider what needs to be done to a Hub and try to tweak as necessary.

    I've notice that waht hub is highest, second highest, etc. often changes.   I agree with Aficionada.  My highest score was 95 yesterday but  often the highest is in the 80s  at other times of the week.

    Is there any chance that what looks like a correlation to the days of the week might really be tied to what days someone gets involved with what kinds of activity on here - I wonder?  I've never noticed anything tied to days of the week (including traffic), but I don't pay much attention to scores anyway (no point, because they're designed so they aren't figured out).

    I have a varied schedule, so what I do on here doesn't have any real "system", but if there's a day when I have more time to pretty much kill by just fooling around on this site, it tends to be Monday.  I tend not to be on here weekends, except for early Sunday mornings.  I'd think if others operate with some version of a "schedule" (even if it looks pretty flexible), maybe that could explain the non-traffic-related aspect to changes in scores.

    Traffic never stays exactly the same. Even a minor traffics drop (such as for the weekends or nighttime in the countries you get the most traffic from) with make the score dip.

      The reason why I asked about this particular hub is that the traffic to it has been steady, even going up. O noticed that it went to 91 in 5 days, the traffic has been also rising even from Google but the score dropped to 88 by the next morning. I was wondering how this works.

      I have also noticed that there are hubs that have gotten to 100 pretty quickly , these hubs by certain hubbers of course. I also wondered if the criterion for that score is specific to the hubber being at 100 too.

    well, my highest hub is still 95, but my hubber score has dropped to 87 from a 92 yesterday, so I don't think it is related to your hubber score.

      Cardisaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah, I don't really think so either. It's just I don't understand why all of a sudden it dropped even though the traffic is rising, as if there is something else it requires for being in the nineties, what I may ask?

    Steady as in exactly the same number of visitors every single hour of the day?  As I said, even small fluctuations from day to day effect the score.  Mine are always up to 5 points lower on weekends even though traffic is general even or increasing when you look week to week.

      Come to think of ot Psycheskinner, you are also right. Thanks.

    I’ve stopped trying to understand hub- and hubbers scores. There is no logical explanation for their spooky fluctuations. Ignoring them will keep you sane and able to concentrate on your writing.   
    sad

    Regarding hubber scores, the only hubber who is always at 100 (at least in the 8 weeks I have been here)  is Patty Inglish. Everyone else fluctuates. smile

      You are right Flora. I am gonna just forget it. Thanks.

    I think it might depend on votes up and votes down and how people find it (useful, beautiful, etc).  I have a hub or four, that receive regular traffic but their score goes up and down by up to 10 points.
