Hi. I have a few questions that I hope someone is patient enough to help me with.
I somehow lost a point on my author score and I didn't do anything except publish another hub. What gives?
What is the purpose of the falling traffic/rising traffic icons? Am I supposed to do anything or is it just a data point? One of my hubs has falling traffic, but it is only 2 days old. Am I wrong to think the appropriate course of action is just to let the hub age?
Wow, were all questions as exact as your. Actually, you answered most of them. The author score is a moving target. It updates every 24 to 48 hours from what I can tell and has many variable included such as community involvement as well as you own hubs and their performance. I have even heard that their earning power has at least a little weight. Here is a good read on the subject. http://hubpages.com/hub/hubberscore. Just for completeness, here is one for the hub score as well. http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubscore
As for the traffic notifications, you are exactly right. They are a data point. The simply give you a quick look at how your hubs are doing from day to day. Allow them to age and these will start to mean a little more. They did for me anyway.
Hope this helped. Feel free to ask any other questions you might have.
Hey thats a good question everyone over here have...
Well, it happens all the time... one or two to and fro... From my knowledge, it is calculated on the basis of overall activity while we are signed in. You go ahead, create hubs, answer those questions u know, ask questions if u doubt anything, join fan clubs... etc.. etc.... it all pays. Hub score is supposed to change two or three points up or down in each 24hrs.
So don't worry my friend. We all have the same experience.
Hope it helps...

I am very new to HP, nad have created a few hubs, though I don't know how good or bad they are! What next? How do I get people to read them, improve my score, etc. Any help would be very useful? Many thanks Nigel.

To satisfy my own curiosity, I would like to know why one of the hubs that was transferred from Squidoo, has such a low "hub score". I have gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, and cannot figure it out. It...

Why do you think the hub with the highest score was scored higher than your others? Interested to know.

I used to be totally addicted to HP, couldn't wait to log on everyday to see what was happening, who and what was popping in the forums, what interesting hub made HOTD, and of course, how my stats and earnings were...

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...
