    Can anyone know that by which factors hubpage writings are scored. I don't see any stable score of each page. The score is fluctuated very frequently. One of my hubpage is: … nd-Answers

    Several times, it has scour of 80. It changing very frequently. Today it has the score 76 about 5 hours ago. Now it's 80 . May be it could change now.

    Can anybody give me any hints regarding this issue? I mean:

    1. How to keep score stable and high?
    2. What are the main things for good score?

      Stability with the score is not something passive. You have to maintain alot of elements to keep it at a high number including:

      Traffic to your hub (inbound from the web not just hubpages, outside HP has more weight)
      Comments affect the score
      Leaving comments on other hubs and using the thumbs up and down affect your hubauthor score
      Inbound links (backlinks to your hubs from outside hubpages have more weight) affect the score
      Participating in the forum affects your score
      Overall hub score on your hubs affect the hubauthor score (its averaged in)
      those are the major factors others that may have an affect are:

      fan base, hubtivity (yours stimulating the community i.e. forum posts, comments, hubs published in some frequency etc..)

      I wrote a hub on the score that is over 7,000 words lol but its full of good intel on hubpages mechanics.

    There are too many factors that make up your overall score, don`t bother it always goes up and down..

    Mine averages somewhere between 89 - 95 .. since I joined Hubpages.. big_smile

      I think that commenting on other hubs, and leaving replies, and generally being participatory can make a difference.

    I noticed one thing that after posting any reply or new topic, hubpages overall score (I mean, scour on hubber's profile picture) also fluctuate. It's happening only me. I don't know whether it's happening to all of the others. When I first post today, my overall score was 94 and now its 92. It decreased by 2.

    Is it depends on the length of the message or anything else?

    I am very much concerned to keep score stable and high. So, I request you to share your experience about this.

      Hubscore and author score would always be fluctuating for every hubber. You can go through the faq page for more details smile

      Don't be concerned its nothing to worry about unless it drops below 60.. realistically its all about participation, if you can stay at 89-100 your peaches...

    I generally find that my hub scores are in tune with the cycle of the tides and the moon.

    When a full moon is approaching - they get higher.

    And when the hub scores drop, I've noticed that the dog always seems to have to go outside.

      That actually makes sense as the moons gravity emits a magnetic pull on the oceans and the water in our body, but when the moon is lined up with the sun (an eclipse) the pull is much greater and can cause electronics to act erradic, although the full moon also has this effect and I think maybe it moves an electron or something causing a cascade of events that makes your score higher during those times.


      The aliens in that ship on the back side of the moon are messing with us with that pen like device they keep pointing at hubpages headquarters to make the scores change... they get a good laugh at how it seems to affect some people more than others, but never affects earnings whatsoever

    This is a little off the topic ,but is there a problem when your overall Hub score stays the same for 2 days? My score always changed several times in a day.

      Might be a function of system upgrades or all the Hub categorizing going on right now, especially among those that have several hundred hubs and are going back to categorize. Just a guess, but makes some sense. Might be something else or nothing at all.

    Thanks Patty, your reasoning and logic seems to make  a lot of sense. I'm not worried about anything, just real curious.

    I am reliably in formed that "small" variations of up to 10 points in your Hubber score are normal, especially if you have a small number of Hubs and haven't been around for long.

    The more Hubs you have, and the more comments you have made in forums and on other Hubs, the smaller the fluctuations tend to be.

    If you want a high score then create hubs with great unique content.

    Hub scores seem kind of confusing.  I don't like the fact that your score can drop down.  I think that they should let you keep building up as high as possible and assign points for each quality article that you contribute!

    I don't take HubScore too seriously - it doesn't have much impact on earnings or web traffic.  It is just a merit system within HubPages community designed to help us to identify experienced and 'successful' hubbers. 

    I suspect there is some random number generating going on to cause the scores to fluctuate with time to make it more interesting!

    I think it is important to make a number of original hubs is the key to a good score.

    I've successfully mainted a 90+ Hubscore for the last 18 months, some of the key factors I've noticed that contribute to my score is the amount of hubs I publish a day.  As long as I do one or two, I fluctuate in the middle 90s.  If I take a few days off or longer, it begins to drop.  I've always written original hubs, and that's helped with the steady hubscore even if I'm not as active on the forums and elsewhere on HubPages.
