I just started and I think the only 3 hubs I posted were of pretty good quality, but right now I am only at 26 for my author score. Is this normal? How do I get it higher?
How do I get more followers as well?
Neither author scores or followers really matter in the grand scheme of things.
The author score will rise on its own after time and only really matters if it is under 75 (I think) and you are planning on using the article to backlink to another site to raise google rank.
Followers are mostly for vanity's sake and very rarely even read hubs posted by those that they are following.
Both exist mainly as recognition within the community.
Thank you. So having more followers doesn't even remotely affect your success or income on here anyways?
I do know the higher your author score, the more important you are in Google's ranking system. I just figured having more followers helped your score.
Actually, your popularity here means absolutely nothing to google.
At least there is not a direct connection. If you write good content in areas where good content doesn't really exist, then google will love you.
Google could also give a fig less about your followers
Google cares about content, content, content... oh and content. If it is good, and others link to it (not within hubpages, that doesn't count) then google will hump your leg. If not, consider yourself the fire hydrant.
As a follow up, that doesn't mean the community here is worthless... many (myself most definitely NOT included) are experts in promotion and google love. You'll find them. Others are experts at writing. You'll find them too. Very very rarely, one of our hubbers will be an expert at both. I suggest when you find them, you stalk them mercilessly.
Okay. Since you have more experience, what is the best way to drive huge amounts of traffic to my articles?
It is so NOT me that you want to ask. Find SunSeven. Read EVERYTHING she ever wrote about it. She's got a ton of very good hubs on it. There are others a few others lakeerieartists is awesome as well.
*edited because I knew I mangled her name so went to look it up.

My title should have read another hub author score question . I have noticed this hubber that puts up a lot of hubs, however, they are all very short, most less than 100-200 words. The type of hub that can be put...

I know, I know.....we shouldn't worry about the author score but: I was up to 97 until I published two Hubs back to back. Then it dropped to 93 within two days. I'm afraid if I publish another one, it...

If my author score gets higher, will the scores of my hubs get higher? Also, if my author score is higher at the time that I start my hub will that affect the scores of my hubs?

From past experience and from most of what I have read it is uncommon for hub scores to go up on a weekend. Please let me know your experience with this.

My Author Score has dropped from 91 to 84 over the last month or so. It's been dropping particularly fast in the last couple of weeks, despite recently publishing 2 popular hubs, daily hubhopping and commenting etc. Any...
