    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?

      I've learned to ignore my profile hub score. The algorithm is convoluted and impossible to understand in real time. An individual hub score, on the other hand, triggers “do follow’’ code on your hub page at a specified level that can impact ad sense revenue.
      Be sure to check out the HubPages Knowledge Exchange Forum for more information.

        Sorry, folks. I misspoke when I said an individual hub page score will impact ad sense revenue. It effects “do follow’’ code on your hub page that can impact search engine optimization. Be sure to check the Hubpages FAQ’s for more details.

      I guess it's how you  active you are in hubpages that your profile hubscore decline or increasing. I dunno but it's what I noticed. When I am active participating in forums my profile score shoot up. Individual hub score? I don't know maybe traffic helps improve the score..

    I thought more hubtivity would increase your score. But in recent times, i found that to be false. Does hub score really impact on one's revenue? That i'd love to know. Bless you

      I would love to say yes, but the answer is no .. hubscore has nothing to do with revenue... so keep on writing and  forget the hubscore.. actually you learn to do it with time.. just enjoy what you do smile  Have fun..

      My understanding is that increased hubtivity does increase your score, though I agree with most that you should forget about fluctuations, and simply try to continue producing quality hubs.

      If you are contributing and it's having a negative impact on your score, perhaps your hubtivity is in the 'Answers' section and people are voting your answers down? That's the only explanation I can come up with...

        Correct.  People vote your hub down, not because of content , but because of quality writing which they cannot produce themselves.  Scores change daily, but I have noticed when my activity increased by 50% my score only increased by one point. (Check out my 15 evergreen hubs and then you decide).  I also noticed that when you get excellent feedback and the article's score increases, somebody comes along and  votes it down...what's up with that? And why aren't we able to know who it is that votes hubs up or down?
        What makes somebody lessen the hubscore, if the article is well written?  I keep asking myself this question...

          As much as I agree that the vote downs are frustrating (particularly because they're often due to someone disagreeing with your opinion, rather than thinking your hub is of poor quality in terms of writing), it simply wouldn't work if you knew who voted your hubs down. People would undoubtedly get petty, and vengefully vote the work down of those who voted them down. It would be chaotic.

          Also, in fairness to all, writing - and quality of writing - is fairly subjective, and there will always be people with different opinions on what defines good, quality writing.

          I have also noticed that certain hubs on astrology or metaphysical topics I write about get down arrows while on the hopper. You have to understand that some days 5 out of 10 hubs on that hopper are direct Bible scriptures copied right out of the Good Book. They don't like "evil" stuff like the tarot, astrology, or anything God tells them not to like.

    It is best to ignore the hubscore and the author score. It is a mystery which should remain a mystery tongue

    Just keep writing and be a little prolific in every activity and you will reap your awards sooner or later. smile

    Yeah, this is what I have seen in one month that your hubscore decreases when you write a new hub and may increase if you sit idle. I have left that to HP and just concentrate on my work. Reading, Writing, Commenting.

    can anyone explain how actually posting new hub can decrease the hub score? It's really weird.

      It seems to me that the scores of hubs in the same account are somewhat linked.

      I experienced the same and it's beyond my understanding. These hubscore and hubber score are really annoying. In spite of more hubtivity I find great fluctuation in my hubscore and hubber score.

    I also want to learn how to increase score. I registered 5 days ago and didn't do anything to it. My score dropped from 30 to below 10. I have posted 8 quality hubs related to cooking yesterday. And my score back to 22.. haha.. I believe quality content = score?

      FeelHungry -
      I noticed that you are following a bunch of people. If you are following them without reading their hubs ie just to get followers, your hubscore will suffer.
      I wrote about how this killed my score in a hub called How New Hubbers Ruin Their Hubscore.

    Hi Peter,
    Thanks for your reply. Actually the first 5 days, I didn't do anything, not even follow people. I just registered the account and looked around. I saw your post and I think it has good information. I will try to follow your tips. :-)

    If you write quality hubs and do nothing else (this means no following, no comments, no forum posts), it's completely possible to have an author score of 80 that doesn't go below that score, within a month.

    The score is really only there to stop spammers (author score below 75 will turn all outgoing links to nofollow.) The numbers have nothing to do with how much traffic and earnings you will get - in fact some hubs with high scores get very low traffic, while others that are only in the 60s may get hundreds of views and earn well.

    Just relax Sanathara and ignore the Hub score. That's what I have learnt here! Instead, write good quality hubs and keep posting, the hub score will increase by itself smile
