My Author score dropped today by 4 points

    My Author score was 92 a month ago and now it is 84. I am really upset as this also means that my outbound links now will be nofollow. Any suggestions on how to get out of this is appreciated.

    I wrote this and I have lost another two points.

      I too have the same concern on dropping my score. It went from 94 to 79. I did a lot of work to get rid of it but without success.  I have observed that a lot of hubbers face similar problem.  Let's listen what the fellow hubbers have to offer. But in my case luckily, the negative impact hasn't affected the traffic.  Still I must say that below 75 is below the set limit.  I hope HP authority will do  consider our SOS message and do something.

    spend more times for reading and writing, you should deposit more  time for increasing your Author score.

    Hi there Anamika, my score seems to have about a 4-6 point swing in it. I usually hover between 88- 92, sometimes it goes higher.  I noticed recently, when I participate a bit in the forums, ask and/or answer questions, edit a few of my hubs, my score goes up, inactivity and it goes down.

    I have noticed that editing/deleting hubs normally can bring the score up. Will try some clean up tomorrow and see what happens.

      Hmm mine's pretty consistent. I don't participate much on the forums and totally nil on the QnA section. I do edit the few hubs that I have left from time to time though. Editors choice and having hubs with higher scores helps from what I've noticed.

      You have a lot of hubs to keep track of.  It might help to delete hubs that receive no traffic or hubs that have similar content that can be found all over the web.  This is my suggestion and someone may come along and say 'forget that', but I would take the words "Buy Online" out of any headings and keep your Amazon/Ebay capsules limited to one item each. 

      @dwelburn - it was changed to below 85.

    I thought your outbound links were only no follow if your score was below 75. Or has that changed?

      Yes, it has changed.

    Mine is consistently at 86 or 87 for a long time. Before HP made the changes, it was above 90 all the time
