I edited my hub that had been sitting at 85 for a good week or so now when I found a simple spelling mistake. That hub's score is now plummeting after fixing this one mistake. I also had another hub drop from 93 all the way down to 78 after I fixed up 5 or 6 spelling/grammar mistakes.
I know people say not to worry about the hubscore... but why bother having it at all if it's more than completely broken, dysfunctional and useless, and is in fact disheartening, detrimental to the entire writing process and even sometimes a little depressing?
I doubt if fixing the errors made your scores drop. It could be traffic related. You have some very interesting, well written hubs. I would try to get them out via social media and see if that helps. With some of your topics, Twitter might be a good place to find readers if you use specific hashtags. You haven't been here long, it takes time. I know there are people out there that would be very interested in your content.
I always see more traffic and either a stable score or slight rise.
It is strange that sometimes a score will get lower when you edit a hub. I'm not sure why that is - it may simply be a function of a more strict rater giving it a low rating. But don't get depressed by it. If you have made the hub better, you should be happy that you caught the error and have made the correction. Over time, the score will go back up as other people who read it notice the quality piece that it is.
oh that happened to me too. I tried to edit an unfeatured hub 2 times (to get it featured), and now the score plummeted to 58.

I just joined, so maybe that's why, but man, it feels unfair. My names Neil by the way. So, I joined the other day and I have worked really hard so far. I have posted 5 Hubpages. 4 of the 5 are featured! Go me! The...

I've been here long enough to realize that hub scores can be low for good hubs and high for those so-so hubs. I also know that hub scores are based on more than content so traffic and reader comments and other things...

My Hubscore drops after I edit a Hub. Is anyone else experiencing this situation? There have been times in which the score has gone up to reflect the editing process. I'm not sure if this is normal.

I'm just wondering.... My Hub score for an unpublished article dropped about 5 points in the last hour since I started editing it (it had sat for about a week prior to that). Not that it really...
