My hubber score has suddenly dropped. I have no idea how it happened. Will it anyway affect my earnings or the traffic flow?

That score has been heavily debated, lobbied against and otherwise controversial for years. The site (understandably) doesn't tell all its secrets regarding the formula. But many of us notice that if we do something 'good',' such as write new content, it inexplicably drops.
Some people (me, for one) believe it should be a hidden number. I feel it's akin to openly posting grades or something - which makes it counter-productive. Can see the benefit of having a number visible only to the Hubber, and offering a popup with tips that say, "You can improve your score by doing XYZ." Or, "Scores need to be at least XXX before the no-follow restrictions are lifted."
As it is used now, it offers no real information to Hubbers, and it's sometimes embarrassing for those who see a huge drop, but are great Hubbers & don't know why it declined.
The hubber score is based on a composite score of all your hubs and your activities within HP community, which includes forum posting, asking and answering questions.
Your earning is determined by the number of visitors coming to your hubs. A lower hubber score does not necessarily lowers visitor flow to your hubs. However, all links in your hubs become no-follow once your hubber score drops below 85. Poppyr has pointed you in the right direction for more information.
The Hubber score has been busted for over 12 months. Despite thousands of requests HP refuses to fix it. HP tells authors to ignore it. What a silly statement. HP seems to enjoy tormenting people with this score that changes willy nilly for no apparent justification. There is no rhyme nor reason for the roller coaster ride to oblivion. Recently anyone who edits their older hubs gets punished by having their hubber score drop - that makes no sense. If HP are not willling to fix it then it should be exterminated. It appears HP are hell bent on getting all hubber scores for older authors below 85 so they can make all their links nofollow. Come on HP how about offering support for the community!!!!!
Okay, now I get it. I was simply worried because after I submitted the latest content, it suddenly dropped to 85.

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

Who thinks we should ask to reinstate a page dedicated to locating hubbers by hubber score. Beginning with 100-0.We once had such a page here that made the hubber score much more relevant, and we could at least get a...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...

This system of hubber scoring is really disgusting. Hubbers posting hubs are assigned low hubber score for several reasons but hubbers without publishing a single hub are participating in forums and have hubber scores...

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be....
