Over the Summer we will be rolling out a few changes to HubScore and Hubber Score that might have an effect on your scores. Fawntia, our amazing engineer at HubPages, has been working hard to make small changes to the complex calculation that is HubScore and Hubber Score. Since the inception of the Quality Assessment Process (QAP), we have been gathering a monumental amount of data on Hubs and their quality. The new HubScore and Hubber Score will continue to use this data to give more accurate scores. While there are still other factors that will affect your HubScore and Hubber Score, the best way to improve your scores is to publish high-quality Hubs.
One other change that you may notice, is that HubScore will not be shown until we have collected some quality data. In the interim, the time between when you publish your Hub and when it goes through the QAP, you will see a question mark instead of a score. Once your Hub has gone through our quality measures, your HubScore will be available. Ta-da! For the time being, the HubScores of your Hubs will only be visible on your Hub Statistics page. Other authors will not see them.
With the improvement of HubScore, sorting your Hubs by Hubscore on your My Account, Hub Statistics Page may be another way to prioritize those Hubs that you update and improve. Summertime is the perfect time to do a few updates to your work (especially those holiday Hubs!); add a photo, additional relevant text, a video, or a table to help your Hubs stand above the rest of the competition!
