OK I have concluded my test.
I created a hub 2 days ago, I did not click the hub once after publish, this hub started of 40 then the next day it was at 79,
Now yesterday I created another hub, and after publishing the hubscore was at 49, after publishing I must have clicked this hub 20-30 times myself, now the hubscore is at 31. so clicking on your own hub does drop the score dramatically.
Please go try for yourself.
My hub "The Fiasco of the Fourth" dropped 10 points overnight. WOW!
I agree. Traffic seems to be slow over the past few days and I have noticed hub score ranging from 96 to 94 depending on the time of day. Can't really understand it and have just decided to let it go.
I can discern no rational process behind my the scores on either my individual hubs or the hub score on my profile. I barely even worry about them anymore. I'm more interested in my ad revenue.
I believe there was a forum thread a few days ago on the same subject where others were noticing the same thing with their newer Hubs. I have found the initial hubscore on a new hub will start out low and then climb over the next few days. I also believe the hubscore can change if someone decides to rate your hub negatively, but don't hold me to that.... I do have one hub that I wrote when I came to hubpages and the hubscore fluctuates from 90 to 83.

Just noticed that the Hub score decreases after a period of time, I know learning all the time. Also noticed your overall Hubscore goes up and down, so what does one do to make them get higher or just remain constant ?

I've heard to disregard that but I'm still a little curious. Honestly I don't know how the score is even decided but those of you that have a lot of followers or have been able to make money, what is your average score...

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to...

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,...
