    I've read everything and still don't understand how they determine these scores.  I sing on in the morning and on my avatar I have 92 coming out my nose.  During the day I can post 3 new hubs, visit a few forums, drive home, login and my nose is now dripping an 84.  How do they calculate this number and should I even care.  I keep expecting to login in one day and I'm at 46.  Worse than the stock market!

      It fluctuates based on a lot of factors, which is why it's hard to understand.  It considers stuff like word count and construction of hubs (ratios of text to videos and images, presence of links, link relevance to key terms... etc.); it considers traffic and searching; there's the thumbs up and thumbs down thing of readers... I think it counts how long people stay on it when the do click.  Lots of stuff.  There's a decent explanation of it in the help screen, here:

    Yeah, don't worry about it.  Just write, have fun, make quality hubs and the score will take care of itself.
