Why has my hubber score dropped down from over 90 to below 80 quickly?

    I am asking this question seriously. I used to not have any activities on hubpages for months, but still maintain a high score, even 95. But since I came back, and have activities from time to time, comments, answers, forums, new hubs, almost everyday, but the score has kept being reduced. Why?!

      The largest part of your hubber score is based on the average score of your hubs - more than other activity.  Sometimes when you publish new hubs, it brings your average down for awhile, which can in turn bring the hubber score down a bit.

        Then, what to decide the hub score? My hubs score all down, and I don't see any difference on hub response, such as traffic and comments, from earlier before I came back.

      Because how content is evaluated has really changed over the last year.  If you've been gone for a long time, you probably need to refresh/update a lot of your Hubs to comply with new standards.

      Because you have been publishing on HP for five years, some of your earlier Hubs are just now going through the QAP process.  Did the scores of your Hubs recently drop?  If so, that had an effect on your Hubber Score.  You can edit a few lower scoring Hubs and that will send them back through QAP for a new evaluation.

        In your opinion, would deleting low performing hubs help with Google ranking and any idea why this would be so?

          The subdomain concept on HP is very unusual and there isn't much online to compare with it.  (HP went from no subdomains, to all subdomains, and is now using subdomains but is posting Editor's Choice Hubs without them.) That's enough to confuse a search engine.

          But, in answer to your question, all good websites have pages which don't rank highly on Google for search terms.  If those non-ranking pages are of extremely low quality (see my Hub on Google Panda), they should never have been published in the first place.  If, however, the pages are quality pages (based on what Panda evaluates, not the HP QAP), there is absolutely no reason to remove them.  One never knows if/when their day will come on search engine results pages. 

          You can look at your own traffic statistics and find Hubs with tens of thousands of views and some with just a few hundred.  Having those lower-visited Hubs doesn't stop high traffic to other Hubs.  Also, to retain ownership of your content, you need to keep it online somewhere unless it is your intent to abandon it.

    My hubs also dropped about 10. And I am not sure If I should deleted the not-featured article right now? I got two not featured article. They turned it to not featured two month ago and my score dropped.
