I used to think that the overall hub score went up when you added new hubs but lately I have had the reverse of this happening and am wondering why and if this happens to other people? It seems to drop just after a new hub is posted but goes back up after about a day.
Same thing happens to me each time I publish a new hub. I seem to recall reading somewhere here when I first started about such a phenomenon and there was no clear cut reason why it happens, it's just known to happen...
That probably didn't help at all, but at least you know that you're not alone!
If you publish it with a 50 score it will lower the average score of your cumulative hubs. I am not sure if this is why the hubber score drops but it might have an influence.
I take awhile to publish a hub so the score rises dramatically before published. I never noticed my hubberscore drop after publishing a hub.
My hub score seems to go down when I add a new one.
Common occurrence. Nothing to worry about.
Hello Bard of Ely, you just have to give your hubs time to grow.. This happens to me all the time.
Mine goes down and then comes up too! The trick is to hold onto your hubs for an extra day or two so that the score simmers a little, then you will not see a significant drop in your score.
Ever hear of the "Google Dance?"
Well, this is the "HP Dance."
It's really nothing to stress about...it will go up, you are changing your scores when adding a new one...that is all.
Thank you, everyone, for all this advice! I am glad it's not just me it happens to!

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...

It has been a few years since I've been on HubPages. Wow! It has changed. Years ago, people could post just about anything, click publish and that was about it. The rules have become much more strict, and now it looks...

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is...
