How is the "Score" per entry determined on HubPages?
Also, if you want to read my stuff, I'm cool with that.
It would seem to me that scores per entry are measured first on content, secondly by reaction and feedback. I have never really been too focused on scores. I write about what interests me and try to do it in a way that can be informative or entertaining. I do not dwell on the topic too much.
Why does one hub I have written stay at the bottom and another stay at the top? It seems all a matter of traffic if I look at pure statistics. If I look too deep I might want to change the way I write. I'm not so sure I would want to do that.
I think it might also be a matter of how much stuff, that is number of Hubs, you have on the site. My writing would be roughly the same 'quality-wise' now as when I started two years ago. I used to be in the 80s, now I'm up above 90 most of the time - at time of writing 97. The fact that I have 222 Hubs posted and around 35 people a day coming in for a peek (based on 16,000 plus viewing over two years) would have to have an influence.
So, keep writing Hubs if you enjoy doing so. Don't expect to get any worthwhile financial returns for it, though. For I'm pretty well convinced that out of 100 hits you'd be luck to get more than one or two would actually click on an advertisement.

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 fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Has the fun gone out of HubPages?The new scoring system with HubPages has dropped me like a bad habit. No matter what I do now my score doesn't go up. Quite frankly, after being here for over 5 years I am disgusted. Please don't tell me scores don't matter because they do. It is as though I have...

I looked at my hub scores today and cried. They have been falling steadily for two weeks from 70's & 80's to 60's and 70's with one 59. Today, one of my hubs has fallen to a 50. HP is sending me mixed signals. I am told to write in a niche that I am passionate about with...

Is the thrill of writing on HubPages gone?HubPages is messing with our Hubscores and it is more frustrating now than ever before. I have been published in newspapers and a national magazine has published many of my articles that have been sold in Barnes and Noble and Book World stores across the...
