How Does The Hubber Score Work?

Updated on July 28, 2013

I went to bed a 97

I woke up a 92!

Tell me that’s not frustrating!

What on earth did I do?

I’m sorry if you’re thinking

All I do is whine and cry

You may be able to contain yourself

But I just feel like I could die.

What’s the point in waitin’?

Just come and take me now

Please just do it swiftly

And do not tell me how.

HP can be so ornery

Or do they have their little pets?

Please don’t say ‘it is what it is’

And this is nothing I should sweat.

I’ve played their games, followed all their rules

And still they punish me

Go ahead

Think me a fool

But I still take it personally.

If only our aging worked in reverse

The way these hubber scores do

Just keep knocking the years away

By now, I think I’d be two!

At least then when I’m sitting

In front of my profile page

When I yell and scream

And stomp my feet

I’d be acting like my age!

I won’t lose hope

I know this much;

If I stand on my head

And make my ears and nose touch

It will be like magic

Just wait and see

My score will rise

Sort of ‘mysteriously’

I’ll be so happy

And think ‘FINALLY’!

I’ll read and I’ll write

And I’ll be stress free!

The relief won’t last

It’ll surely go away

Knowing my score

Will drop again someday

And it’s someday soon

I’ve figured that out

When it rains is pours

When it’s dry, there’s drought

That’s the weather

Here at HP

They give and they take

So rapidly

I’ve had relationships

More steady than this

And I’m even talking about

My ex, the bipolar narcissist

Laughing today

The world is good

My score is sitting

Where it should

Tomorrow, I’ll be stressing

And shaking in fear

Knowing the decline

Of my score is near

‘Hey there, HP’

Just keep my score low

Then there’s nowhere

Worse for it to go

I don’t appreciate

These mind games of yours

You open up windows

Then slam all the doors

I thought I had problems

I was already weak

You use and abuse me

Tell me to turn other cheek

If that’s what you want

I can do that for you

You want a cheek

Well I’ve got a FEW

Just give me a minute

I’ll tell you what you can do!

The Hubber Score

Are you ever frustrated?

      I have no idea how it works, the amount of effort you put into hubs sometimes makes you feel frustrated when your score doesn't rise. Voted up.

      Hi Cat-first of all, How the heck are you? Miss chatting with you here. Sis and I recently moved, so I haven't had much time to write and visit with my hub buddies. I hope all is well in your world-well, other than your hub score fluctuating and making you crazy. I let go of that number a long time ago because I was finding that I wasn't writing for me anymore when I watched that elusive number too closely. I know I have a passion for writing, I know I'm pretty good at writing-that's all that really matters. I think there are many factors that contribute to that score-some of them have nothing to do with Quality of Hubs. Just saying. Anyhoo, good to stop in and see your beautiful face. Love Linda

      Cutest Cat and Sweet Kit Kat,

      First of all,I really dont know that you published this hub.I ve missed it,I dont know how could that happen because I am a hub vigil:)everyday I check it :) sort of hub-addicted too like you:)

      I check today your profile cause I see you are not around and wanted to say :Hello .Besides ,your last comment on my hub makes me worried about you.I hope you are doing fine.

      Anyway,this poem is funny and beautifully interwoven.I wish if there were any possibility to send you all my scores to support your ground and make you always in good mood :)

      ps. ornery is one of secret words that I and ex we used to use when we want to refer to hor... hahaha

      Much love and tons of hugs to you!

      Oh, thank you! :D Your energy and enthusiasm always brings a huge smile to my face, thank you! I have to say, I would've loved to have heard your poem... lol, but I'm happy you're able to get away and have dinner with your son; I hope you have a terrific time.

      In the meantime, I've had a couple of your hubs written down that I saw shared in the feed that I've been anxious to read, so I'll have to find myself over there! :D

      Thanks again!!!

      Au fait,

      I seem to have the same feelings with HP as I do with men; can't live with them, can't live without 'em... lol. Okay, I lied, I can live without a man :D Anyway, yes, it is frustrating, for me anyway. When I feel like I'm on top of my game, pounding out hubs and traffic is up, my score will go down and then I get discouraged and almost take a step back, pressure's on. I went away for the weekend a couple of weeks ago and I came back to pathetic traffic, which I completely understand, at least that makes sense! BUT... all of my hubs' scores were way up! It was as if HP all of a sudden decided that my hubs were great, though nobody was reading them? How does that make any sense? As soon as I became active again and my traffic started rising, my hub scores plummeted... again, why is that? I do and I don't care. I don't care about my number for number purposes. What I do care about is understanding where HP feels I am failing or succeeding, but as you suggested and I agree, they don't tell us anything but assign us and our hubs numbers and slap blue or red arrows by our hubs. Thanks for the heads up HP! Geesh!

      I was hoping to build a nice online presence before I branched off, but I guess you could start from scratch elsewhere and both places could bring traffic to each other; I hadn't really thought about it like that. I do like the idea of that Wikinut, you mentioned. I think when the kids go back to school and the hectic summer months are past me, I'll have the kind of time I'd like, to dedicate attention and energy to doing something like that... as it is now, I'm lucky to get in an hour or so at midnight lately and I spend most of the time weeding through emails and notifications. Yes, I will definitely come to you before going over to Wikinut... it would only be logical anyway :D ... in the meantime, I'll be looking forward to that hub!

      Thanks Au fait, I always appreciate your view on, well, everything!

      Thanks for the votes and the share too!

      I Love it, I Love it, I Love it. I was just talking about the crazy hubber score. Voted up, Awesome, beautiful and interesting, pinned and shared.

      I would write you a poem on here, but leaving to have dinner with my son and some friends. S***w the hubber score. No hub today, time to play.

    • Au fait profile image

      C E Clark 4 years ago from North Texas

      Since they don't tell us what it means it has a mostly depressing affect on a lot of us. Clearly no one in HP administration understands psychology and that when people are down they do not produce their best work if any at all.

      I go from 91 to 98 and back again. Up and down like a yo-yo, and for what? Same with my hubs. Sometimes 3 are idled, sometimes 20, sometimes 7, sometimes 15 or 11, it bounces all over the place.

      I hate to keep saying this, but Wrylilt has addressed this and advices ignoring both the hubber score and the hub scores. As she pointed out, we do not make money according to our scores in either case and Google doesn't give a rip about our scores. Some people with fairly low hubber scores actually make pretty good money.

      So what you should be concerned about is page views and clicks. You can't encourage clicks at all, but you can advertise your work, and I always recommend a person take every opportunity to do that. Also, to appease the Google God, make sure all of your hubs are fresh. You can do that by either encouraging people to put meaningful remarks on them regularly, or you can simply add some new information to the body of the hub yourself.

      Consider writing on other sites. You can get good backlinks that way and promote your work here and anywhere else you are posting. For example, I just started writing on Wikinut. Instead of adding to current published hubs here on HP, I have written related hubs with links to hubs here, and vice versa. There are other sites I'm looking into for this same purpose. Let me know if you want to sign on Wikinut so I can get credit. ;) I'll write a hub about Wikinut one of these days, but I wanted to have more experience with it before I do that.

      Voted up, funny, awesome, and will share.

      This cracked me up so hard! I know exactly how you feel though. I think everyone does. What makes me laugh is I can be gone for days and when I come back I'm a 99 but then I post something and suddenly I'm a 97. The heck? Lol. Great poem. :)

      Shan,

      Ha ha ha! Hi, my name is Cat and I'm a stupid little girl! lol... Hello! Fuzzy wuzzy was a woman? lol... I'm not even going to explain, but it has something to do with Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. Was! Was! Was! lol... Oh gee, I didn't catch it until you wrote the whole sentence out... lol. It's funny how it just slapped me in the face now that I went specifically looking for it! It is was it is! lol That's my fuzzy wuzzy inspiration... don't ask :D

      Oh Shan... you've got me laughing, but I feel so bad things are so crazy right now... of course, you'll come back with something positive about how you'll be okay and all that good stuff. I just wish you lived in a castle, with Prince Charming and had all your dreams come true. Instead, it seems like you live in a pumpkin, with Peter Peter... lol and I'm not referring to your husband, just the story... haha.

      Yeah, if I am to find some lose marbles, how am I supposed to know if they're yours or mine? lol

    • shanmarie profile image

      shanmarie 4 years ago

      No need to be self-conscious. I just wrote the mistake right above you....you mean "don't tell me it is what it is," which by the way, has become a most despised phrase for me to hear lately as well. Some took to saying it way too often and it got on my nerves, sometimes because of the context in which it was used. LOL

      Yes, I like the bunnies.

      No, I didn't get the phone situation tended to. For some reason, the land line was still on where I was. Had to go back for a week, and it was a surprise to find that, actually. You might not believe the things going on right now...or knowing you and knowing that you do already know some of it, you probably would believe it. Hahaha

      Sometimes I feel like I live in the nut house already! So, please, if you find a few loose marbles lying around, they're probably mine. . .kindly return them. :D

      Uh, I might not be behind on your hubs, but I've hardly been able to speak with you lately and noticed a missed call the following morning, just a couple of days ago. (Got that phone situation tended to?)

      Great... I reread the hub after you made me self-conscious and I couldn't find anything, except some poor rhyming.... lol. I guess I'll have to go back again! lol

      I should've been sippin' a little of granny's cough medicine... lol. I was riding along, a 97 and the next day, every time I refreshed my page, I kept losing points... until I hit 92. But really, I'm learning not to care, but I can't help make fun of HP. Don't you like my mean bunnies? lol

      mr veg, my dear friend! Hey, you!!! The funny thing is, since I've published this hub, I've gone from 92, back to 97 and now down to 95... ha ha! Eh, who really cares? It seems that I stop stressing about my score once I accept that it's fallen; it's whenever it's high that I live in fear... lol.

      That 100 really scares me.... I don't know that I'll ever be seeing that number, besides, it'd probably give me a stroke, ha ha.

      You, though... you certainly deserve a 100, you're a great hubber and friend and yes, I'm on my way over!

      dreamseeker2,

      Thanks! I thought the bunnies were funny... lol; My intentions was to use them in a fun way, directed toward HP for being so fussy with their scores; then my sweet friend Faith Reaper said she'll tell me I'm awesome and be on her way :0! I was thinking 'NO! .... maybe I should take them down!'... lol, I know she was only playing, but I certainly appreciate all my little hubber friends and I would never tell any of them to go away :D

      I really try to ignore my score when it plummets, but I do wonder why or what I've done.

      I'm lucky that I get awesome visitors to my page like you! The number doesn't mean much when we have that. What's the point of 100 if nobody comes to your pages? :D

      Thanks again!

      Abby,

      Well, this hub has been a long time coming! Ha ha.... It's sad that we can just about live on HP and keep our scores 'somewhat steady', yet we go away for a couple of days and it seems like we're punished for being away for years! Since summer has began, I've had weekends away or just long days without a chance to get on and it always ends up showing up in my profile score. It's frustrating, for sure... but mostly, I'm just being a nut. I'm happy to hear your earnings are doing so well and gaining! Funny though, I'm earning far less these summer months than I was leading up to summer. You'd think the longer you're here and the more hubs you write, the earnings would continue to increase. I think for me, it has to do with not writing for an audience outside of HP. You write hubs that appeal to the HP world and the world outside... keep it up!

      Have a wonderful day, yourself!

      Cat

      LOL. I understand your frustrations, Cat. I was on vacation for a couple of weeks. I checked in on Saturday which was my last day of vacation. I was at "85." I thought "not bad for being out for a couple of weeks." Then I came in on Monday and it had dropped to "79." Big drop in just a couple of days! But, my earnings are up double from last month. With that, I cannot complain as each month keeps getting better. Have a wonderful day!

      My beautiful Paula friend!

      Aw... you rhymed for me! I'm so happy; that is what you wanted, isn't it? Ha ha... and what a lovely rhyme it is... you really ought to explore the poetry route a little more often... and it's so loving and nurturing. I feel like I should have a warm glass of milk and go to bed now... I will sleep like a baby.

      You're the best! Thank you so much for your wonderful ditty and the visit! I hope life's been treating you good!

      Do not worry, Cat about your hubbing fate,

      Your hub score will continue to fluctuate.

      Whether it's up or down or side to side,

      Just write away and hold on for the ride. :)

      Cat.....Way back months & months ago

      I asked why scores go high & low

      It's nothing we do, so don't be sad

      It doesn't mean we're good or bad

      So many things effect our score

      Just don't worry any more

      It takes a while not to care

      we think it really isn't fair

      Just keep on doing what you do

      Remember that you're kinda new

      Head up, and fingers on the keys

      Just be happy, will you please?

      Loved this one Cat - best to ignore those scores - they don't make any sense and in our eyes your is a deserved 100%. One thing is for sure - you always give 100%.

      Billy, you're too funny... ha ha! It does irritate me a little, but I learned quickly that it really doesn't seem to matter what we do, our scores will never make much sense, but I can't help to make fun of it... or at least, myself... lol

      Pale in comparison? Pftttt! You're writing is superb!!! :D

      You have a great day yourself and thank you for stopping by!

      The comments are great as was your poem. Anything I write will pale in comparison. Suffice to say I give no thought to Hubber score....I'm not here for that and it is meaningless to me...some silly little formula HP uses to drive Hubbers crazy but they missed their mark with this stubborn man. :)

      Have a great day my friend.

      Oh Michael, that was so cute! I should make a prerequisite for people to share a poem with me in the comment section... lol, I could read these all day!

      Dearest, I try not to fret... but it seems like the minute you start feeling good about something; they giveth and they taketh away :D

      I know these things are foolish, I'm still relatively sane; just poking fun... it's how I roll ha ha!

      Thanks darling,

      Cat

      Who said something about fudge? Yummy :D

      My Kitty cat... worry not .

      you are awesome and I give these thoughts

      with you in mind ,

      your rhymes are of course

      one of a kind

      I never look for scores it seem .. just write about my own lonely dreams ...

      scores from those who seek to judge

      sometimes if you taste them are like fudge

      slowly melting sweet and nice

      tomorrow though .. they will be

      cold as ice.

      LOL

      love your personality

      my sweetest Kitty..

      Your Fan

      Hi Cat,

      After weeks of toeing the line, I've crossed the 90's threshold. I'll try to stay level headed, knowing that I can be back to the 80's any minute. This hub was cute, I love the little guys in the pics. Great job and voted up as always.

      Oh, Sweet, Patient Faith Reaper,

      I'm glad you're not scared away by my goofiness; at least I hope you're not... lol.

      I know, I saw your score way down, not too long ago and it even frustrated me. I was thinking 'What do they want from this lady?!' Ha ha... I don't get it, I never will. But it's okay, honestly... I just couldn't help trying to make fun of the situation... I was due for a funny day!

      You're right though, I think being away, even if only for a day, hurts. I actually felt guilty publishing this when I'm so far behind on hubs... but I'm trying to catch up now!

      I hope you enjoyed your visit with the beautiful grandkids! And, you never have to move along... lol... I just thought those little funny bunnies were cute... haha!

      Have an awesome day, dearest!

      Hugs and love,

      Cat

      Oh my lanta... that was so funny and you've got me laughing! Ha ha... There must be something in that Canadian water... I just love you people! :D

      That poem of yours was so good; I'm thinking about deleting my hub now... lol.

      I already know these things are wacky; I'm just trying to make fun of the situation that's all... no need for an intervention...lol

      Thanks so much for stopping by and the AWESOME poem!

      Hi Dearest Cat,

      It can be frustrating, but I have noticed that when my life gets really busy, as it has been here of late with my grands up for almost two weeks, and I do not publish at least once or twice a week, it will drop really fast. I did go back and edit and make my hubs as ever-green as possible as to the subject, and all are featured.

      I was just at 97 the other week, and then the next week dropped rapidly and I am assuming that due to not being able to publish. Then noticed this day, it dropped a point, as last week there was just not enough time in the day for me.

      I do not know if anyone truly knows the answer or ever will know.

      Have a lovely day sweetie. You are awesome and I am moving on : ) !!!

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper

      Hubber score is so hard to ignore

      Understanding how they obtain the score

      Today I started at one hundred

      For reasons unknown to me

      97 is now what I see

      My reads went higher than they have ever gone

      Jumping for joy I sing my Hubber song

      Two hubs marked with double red flags

      Three others are climbing but my score sags

      Could it be the hub I wrote today

      On the SlutWalk in Toronto yesterday

      I thought from the title it might hurt my score

      Just wanted to see if one hub would soar

      In the forums there are many questions

      Sometimes people are given suggestions

      Components that make up your score

      Depends on traffic and much more

      Contributing to the community

      Is all part of calculating the unity

      Voting they say is a big part that covers

      All the numbers that they use to discover

      How high your hub score will be today

      Always fluctuating it will swing and sway

      Scores are penalized if you copy

      Make your hubs neat not sloppy

      Always remember original content is best

      Hope this helps on what I’ve expressed
