It seems that now I have been more active on the site, HubPages has lowered my scores on some hubs, but also increased my score on others. Anyone know why that is? Thank you, everyone! :-)
Your activity has nothing to do with your hubscores, it has more to do with your profile score.
Your hubscores are a reflection of traffic, comments, traffic sources and most of all the scores assigned through the QAP. All hubscores fluctuate at times, it's normal, but you can tweak you hubs to increase their scores by updating information, photos, title and so on.
Individual Hub Scores are a result of the quality assessment or traffic of that Hub, when traffic drops, your Hub Score for that particular Hub will drop accordingly. Your profile rating (the score next to your name) will rise however, when you are more active in the HubPages community.
One article I wrote 9 months actually had quite a dramatic increase in traffic all of the sudden. Then out of nowhere, HubPages disabled all Ads on my article, (which I understand because of the content), but then they also dropped my score by two points. Then increased one article by one point that actually has the lowest traffic out of all my articles and always said it had decreasing traffic. But as I said, my traffic was increasing dramatically on this particular article, and they lowered my score:
I must say that I am glad to learn about the fluctuating score on the profile. I had been trying to figure out why it was doing that so much. I stay pretty active hub wise, but I am still learning about the Q&A and forums. As to the hub scores, I gave trying to figure out why they go up and down. As long as they stay above 70, I am peachy.

I would like a better explanation of the Hub Score. I have a Hub that I uploaded on May 12th, it's ranked #2 on Google search results for its main keyword phrase, it's getting 175 visits per day sent by Google, but the Hub Score is only 78. Is that because someone at MTurk didn't like...

Is it me or have the Hub scores been fluctuating more drastically the last week or so?

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 views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

My Hub "People Almost Met: Lily at the Pool" recently had a hub score of 100 and stayed at the level for about two weeks. Now it is in the 60's. It has lots of comments and about average views (for my hubs). Anyone know what I can do about this?

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!
