Can you improve the score on your hub by editing the original hub after it was initially scored?
Scores are empty numbers. It's traffic and earnings which indicate how your hub is doing. Scores increase with time anyway.
Thank you for your reply. I am a new Hubber. I'm still trying to figure out the scoring system works. I've read the FAQ's time and time again, but can't seem to break the 60-80 range.
Don't worry Katrina. I have been here 4 years. I have hubs that rank on the first page of google, get thousands of views a month and yet are given a hub score in 60's and 70's. Just don't worry about HP ranking as long as traffic and google rankings are working. Obviously if I have scores of 70's that are on the first page of searches, those scores mean nothing to google.
@Katrina1981 The HubScore is largely based on the QAP. A score can change each time the Hub is edited and evaluated, so editing your Hubs can be a good strategy to improve these scores.
Keep in mind that HubScore and HubberScore, although they sound pretty similar, are different.
In general a HubScore is unique for each Hub and the HubberScore is for your profile and is largely based on the HubScores from all of your Hubs.
You can find a bit more about each here.

Matthew, thanks a bunch for the feedback! I want to continue to do my best to create quality hubs for everyone to enjoy.
It is good I saw this thread. I kept wondering why my hub score keeps fluctuating. My hubber score too took a four point dipped in four weeks. I was able to upped it when I posted new articles. The link from Matthew is a great help. Thanks much!
Appreciate the help. I knew a little about hubs and scores, but this article was certainly a boost to my knowledge

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be....

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've been here long enough to realize that hub scores can be low for good hubs and high for those so-so hubs. I also know that hub scores are based on more than content so traffic and reader comments and other things...
