I'm working through my former lenses (now new hubs) to clean them up and remove violations. I've noticed that my hub author score is dropping a bit. Since my pages are looking better, I am assuming it is because of all the editing I'm doing.
I'm really not that concerned about the score because the people finding my pages really only need them for a short while and the score wouldn't matter to them. I just want to make sure I'm not inadvertently committing a faux pas.
Thank you so much!
Hi Cari. Glad to see you on HP.
My score has fluctuated every time I add a new hub. I believe the system counts a lot of averages. So newly published (a lens to hub edit) will reset the numbers (to HP stats) and temporarily drop our author score. But, I noticed mine went from 80ish to 70ish with a new hub published (I still don't have my lenses here yet) but, after a couple of days the author score went up higher than it was before I published the new hub.
I'm guessing it is based on averages. So the more lenses you get published over time the less fluctuation will be noticed.
I'm following you! Have fun! Deb
p.s. there are other Q&A topics in the forum similar to this one. I noticed them listed when I came here to read your question. The most promising looking is this one.
You may edit your Hubs as many times as you want, and there is no penalty (or advantage) for doing that. Each time you edit, however, it does go back through QAP and gets scored again.
You can edit as much as you like, there are no rules or guidelines about it. The score isn't telling you you're doing something wrong!
Gypsy, thank you! That thread was perfect. I thought I had read something about scores and editing but couldn't find it. Appreciate your help and I will edit on

This is what I have observed with my hubscore. After publishing a hub and leaving comments on other hubs, I get lots of traffic but the hubscore falls by the hour. When I stay away from HubPages for a few days, and the traffic drops to nothing, the hubscore starts to climb and reaches an all-time...

I unpublished two hubs a couple weeks ago I believe. Both had hub scores in the mid 80's. Those two unpublished hubs now have hub scores of 69 and 70. I'll leave it to others to speculate as to why. I just thought I'd give a heads up as to what happens when one does that. Too many variables for me...

I've noticed over the past couple of days that the hubs I've published have begun with scores under 50. Is this a new feature that I am not aware of or an issue that needs to be looked at?Thank you!

Some of my transferred lenses look like crap as a hub, mainly because they have poetry in them, which won't display as neat as I want them to. It will take some time to repair those hubs and I think it would be best to unpublish those hubs and publish them again when fixed. I think it wouldn't do...

I know, I know.....we shouldn't worry about the author score but: I was up to 97 until I published two Hubs back to back. Then it dropped to 93 within two days. I'm afraid if I publish another one, it will drop even further. The score does seem to drop after a new...

Has anyone noticed a marked change in their hub scores? I only noticed today so not sure if it happened today or in the recent past.. But some of my hubs have seen a marked increase from 70's and 80's into the 90's and even a 100...Is anyone else seeing a real change?
