Yesterday I tweaked my lowest scoring hub. I added an in-text link to a government website and changed the first photo to a "Made for Pinterest" pic. I used the same picture as another one of my hubs but added a different title. I now have two red up arrows but the hub score dropped 5 points. What's up (or down in this case)? Should I go back and get rid of the changes?
Lisa, you got me. I keep learning and learning each time I click on a New Forum subject. Thanks, Lisa. I am sure that Jodah or someone at Team@hubpages.com will help you. And would you tell me what this means. Thanks.
As long as your subdomain isn't being threatened with the no-follow scenario, ignore hubscore.
HubScore doesn't matter at all, it is only a rough indicator of quality. Your MFP will reward you a lot once the Pinners see it!
There are many factors which influence HubScore, but the best thing to do is ignore it. It is NOT a measure of the quality of the Hub, or of its potential for getting traffic or earning income. Just ignore it.
Thanks all. I won't worry about it. I thought maybe I just did something wrong that everyone else knows not to do.
I would ignore the temporary drop in the score. It will go back up as more people view the hub.
This happens to me when I change photos or add more, the score always drops, but seems to come back up later.

still today, I am unable to understand how the Hubscore works? As sometimes, I don't do anything and it gets increased, and sometimes, in spite of more Hubtivity it decreases like anything?

I was shocked this morning that despite posting a new hub last night my hub profile score had dropped from 96 down to 88. I posted in Hubber's Hangout and it turns out that I am not alone because other hubbers have their scores going down and some are reporting by a figure of at least 8 same as...
