I took a long break from writing here, and upon my return my Hubber score, well I can't remember precisely, but it was either 83 or 85. I wrote a post and posted it, and since that day my Hubber score has steadily been dropping, and my earnings have all but ceased.
But too, as I returned I activated the ad program...
The reason I had finally returned was that my hubs, after two years, had started to pay off significantly, so to me it was finally worth my while to write here. Now I am back to earning cents here and there. I don't get it. I suppose I must experiment by turning the ad program off again to see if earnings return to how they were before, but I suppose that I will have to accept that my Hubber score will remain low if I choose to stay away again due to low earnings.
I don't get it, everyone says that earnings increase when you use the ad program.
I ask others to share their opinions on what I have shared...
Concerning your hubberscore dropping, it all happened to me too. But thank God immediately I started dusting my older hubs, unpublished those that were not getting traffic, actively participating in forum post, sincerely with all these my hubberscore started rising.
I wrote like crazy the first year I was here, and once I had over 100 hubs, stopped. Then I only came back once in a while, as I was launching my blog.
It took time, but I also experienced making a payout each month here, even though I wasn't posting except for once in a while. And my hubber score stayed at 100 for ages. Summer is the worst traffic time, and your topics are a lot like mine. They pick up when people are reading your hubs, or having problems and look to your methods for answers.
When you add a new hub, it starts with a lower score, and that lowers your average. It may not reflect in your hubber score (meaningless anyway) but on your account page you'll see your average and hubs are in general lower in score.
The same thing is happening to me.
The end of July through August is the longest-sustained, low traffic period of the year unless you specialize in specific, seasonal summer content.
North Americans at this time are doing just about anything but being on the Internet. Kids are not in school. This is the biggest period of travel/vacation for most working people. People are outside a lot.
Your Hubs have a lot of tarot content. Unless people "need" that for whatever else they are doing in their lives right now, you probably aren't going to see much traffic until after Labor Day, when everyone goes back to work and back to school.

Does Hubscore matter despite having a good amount of traffic in any way?

Evidently, hubber score has absolutely nothing to do with earnings. Yesterday was my biggest earning day EVER on HP, yet my hubber score is the lowest it's been in quite a while. That's okay - I'll take high earnings over a high score any ole day!

For a very long time now my hubber score has lingered between 96 and 100. About a week ago it dropped to 93, and now is down to 91. Although people say this score does not matter, it matters to me. Yes, i have deleted a few hubs recently, but I have also added some. I've...

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 efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

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!
