This is another gripe, just trying to understand things better. It has never happened before in the 13 months I have been here. I published a hub yesterday in the morning at 70 points. When I woke this morning it was 80 and has been falling since.
I have never had hub do that. It usually starts falling only when the traffic trickle off. The hub has been picking up traffic since and even Google traffic. I am thinking maybe I did something wrong here. It is so frustrating. At least I expected it to rise normally then fall in a few days as they normally do.
I know scores should not be important but having a newly published hub fall so much in one day after being published id weird and it bothers me.
If you weren't concerned before the hub was published when the score was rising and no traffic was going to it, then you shouldn't worry about it now. Did you ever wonder why the score was rising before it was published?
Ask yourself which is worse a falling Hubscore or falling or no traffic to a page? Try to assume that the Hubscore makes no sense except to the people who know why it was set up in the way that it is. That way a falling scores, unless they plummet below the no-follow number will matter less to you.
It's just weird. It never happened like that before. I expected it to fall, just not so fast after being published. Even my stupid poetry don't plummet so fast.
Traffic is definitely more important to me. I am just trying to figure if I did something wrong in my hub.
Most of my hubs vary in scores within a 20 point range. I don't even see the numbers anymore, unless I specifically look for them. I find them less than useless.
i just posted on another forum of the same detail. I agree, it is weird. My particular hub was at 100 and the next day at 91? I just want to make some kind of sense to it, if it needs "refreshing" fine, but almost 10 points in one day is pretty extreme.
I wish there some kind of system to base the scores on, just even a tiny bit, it would help the trial and error less aggravating.
I'm like WryLilt, in that I pay little to no attention to the HubScores. I do notice occasionally - usually on a Wednesday and/or Thursday - that a few of my Hubs will have noticeably higher scores, but on the evening of the second day those scores will fall by at least five points. It's a regular pattern for me, so it doesn't bother me in the least. There are plenty of things to worry about that I can actually intentionally influence. HubScores don't fall within that category.
It's the newly published hub is the one I'm griping about. Usually a new hub will go up at least 20 - 30 points before falling and it will go up for a few days and linger then drop when the traffic does. This particular hub gained a few points the day it was published, then start to fall drastically.
Just wanted to see if anyone had any answers but I guess I just have to live with it.
Thanks you all for you response guys, really appreciated.
from my point of months of time spent at hubpages hubscores aren't so important
You are right, although once you see that perfect score there with author name beside it gets to you when it slides way down, speaking from my self. I know with time I will (hopefully) get over it.
Cardisa, don't worry about hubscores. I hardly even notice my hubscores unless one pops a 100, and I watch the lowest to make sure it doesn't get too low.
Thanks guys, I know. I just need to ignore it, but it's hard.

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...
