It seems that now I have been more active on the site, HubPages has lowered my scores on some hubs, but also increased my score on others. Anyone know why that is? Thank you, everyone! :-)
Your activity has nothing to do with your hubscores, it has more to do with your profile score.
Your hubscores are a reflection of traffic, comments, traffic sources and most of all the scores assigned through the QAP. All hubscores fluctuate at times, it's normal, but you can tweak you hubs to increase their scores by updating information, photos, title and so on.
Individual Hub Scores are a result of the quality assessment or traffic of that Hub, when traffic drops, your Hub Score for that particular Hub will drop accordingly. Your profile rating (the score next to your name) will rise however, when you are more active in the HubPages community.
One article I wrote 9 months actually had quite a dramatic increase in traffic all of the sudden. Then out of nowhere, HubPages disabled all Ads on my article, (which I understand because of the content), but then they also dropped my score by two points. Then increased one article by one point that actually has the lowest traffic out of all my articles and always said it had decreasing traffic. But as I said, my traffic was increasing dramatically on this particular article, and they lowered my score:
I must say that I am glad to learn about the fluctuating score on the profile. I had been trying to figure out why it was doing that so much. I stay pretty active hub wise, but I am still learning about the Q&A and forums. As to the hub scores, I gave trying to figure out why they go up and down. As long as they stay above 70, I am peachy.

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

I posted a number of hubs the other day, which all started out at a relatively low score as they usually do--somewhere in the 40s and 50s. I saw my score drop a point or two, which I would normally see. Since then, the...
