    It doesn't make sense to me why old hubs are reducing in scores as the lately published hub's score is rising: I mean; how does a recently published hub affects other hub's score? It's a mystery here!

      One Hub's score does not affect another Hub's score.  The scores move up and down all the time and nobody else likes it either.  But, that's the way it is.

    I've been noticing quite a shift in hub scores over the last couple of days. They seem to be moving up again, although they still don't make much sense.

    My hub scores have been up and down for days.  My lowest scoring hub fell to a 46 for a couple of weeks and now overnight has risen to 53.  I didn't do anything to it.  It had a few visitors yesterday but all the hubs in that series (which are linked together) got a little traffic yesterday so I don't know if it was due to the miniscule increase in traffic or the fickleness of the hub gods.

    I've been keeping an eye out the last few days. Lots of mine have gone up or down by 5 - 10 points over the last 4 days including my higher scoring hubs with few views - some up, some down. My hub that consistently gets the most views dropped 12 points. I've stopped worrying about it as score has little to do with views in my experience, but this seems particularly erratic.

    Ditto, ditto, and ditto. I thought it was because I was doing too much editing of titles but now I think the new HP hubscore readjustment thing is happening again. It must happen in spurts.

    I have 2 year old hubs that are holding their own being the highest score and in the high range.

    I have some older hubs that have higher hubscores and those that have gone way down. My personal hubscore has gone way down in the last few days. My traffic has gone up, so it doesn't have anything to do with that.

    The method of calculating HubScores changed in July and for most people, that has meant a drop in score.   

    I see a strong correlation now between HubScore and the number of checkboxes that are ticked (in the top right hand corner in edit mode).  It's not an exact correlation because HubScore also takes into account things like number of comments, traffic etc, but it is noticeable IMO.

    So if you want a higher score (although really, you shouldn't care), get those boxes checked!

    Paul Edmonson did say the HubScore would be getting tweaked again, so I'd say they're doing some trials if scores are fluctuating so much.

    As I've said, my scores are generally rising again, but my two highest scoring hubs were first published in 2010. I've been looking for a correlation between higher hub score and the number of ticked checkboxes, but this doesn't seem to apply in my case. In fact, the hub that has the most boxes ticked is a newer one from 2014 that has a score of 71.

      As they're older, they're probably getting a lot more traffic and may also have a lot more comments?

        Not really. The highest scoring (98) has 12 comments and gets about 20 views a day, and the other has two comments and gets about 30 views a day. My most popular hub comes next. It was published this year, and has two comments. My hub with the most comments was published in 2010 and has a score of 70. I must admit, though, I haven't updated that hub yet, and it's absolutely awful in my opinion, even if it was nominated for a Hub Nugget back in the day.

    I was seeing the hubscore go up and down on the hub I published yesterday, and my hubberscore, too. They seem to have leveled off now, maybe. (maybe not)
