I created an account yesterday. When I look at my account today, I saw a score of 22 from 50. Although I already published one hub, it still gets lower. Now it's 17. Oh no, what should I do. I hope I don't get suspended as I'm just getting started.
Mine sat at 0 for a few weeks. No one really knows why. The best advice I got was to ignore it. I did and everything worked out. If you put "hub score low" in the forum search box you'll come up with plenty of people that had the same issue. Someone even wrote a funny hub about it. Don't worry.
Yep, don't worry about it, shergs! So long as you're being a responsible HubPages citizen, it will correct itself over time.
My Hubber score fluctuates above and below 75. I can never get it to stay above 75 for more than a day. It seems a constant battle that I'm starting to wonder if it is worth fighting.
My score did the same thing and I just posted new hubs and commented on others and now my climbed up to 40 and is still climbing.
Once your score get higher, it's an average. So say you have an 85 score. Then you post a new hub, and it usually starts at around 50 (give or take a few points). The new hub will "pull" your score down a little bit since it starts at a lower number, just don't worry about it. Keep on writing, that's what makes your score go up. Make sure you have the right word count, at least 500 words, and watch your spelling and punctuation. Best of luck to you and welcome!
I'm glad I saw this thread! I feel much better now that my score will bump up in time. Every time I logged in today it was down another point or two and now I'm in the single digits. Fingers crossed!
One reason is a huge string of following other hubbers with no other activity. It will do it every time.

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...
