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

Do-follow and No-follow backlinks affect our page ranking in google. Is there any relation to our hubscore here on Hubpages? I've been told that there is probably no affect on our hubscore in relation to our backlinks....

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...

Why is my new hub scored so low? I started a new monicker to write on a very different subject, but my first hub is only rated a 74 and it's been up for 2 weeks. I'm used to 80s and 90s scores. Please provide feedback,...

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 have been on Hubpages for almost 3 years now! I have never experienced such a low HubberScore of 43-45, it has always been 70+, even in my worst days. What's even worse for my current situation, it is that this...

I think I know the answers I will get from my fellow hubbers on this topic. But what is funny is that two days of no activity from me in Hubpages has dragged my Hubscore from 79 to 74. How fair is that? I cannot...
