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'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 alter the score. For the most part, I don't concern myself with the score as long...

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is recommend to get a good score.It is disheartening not to get a feedback. For...

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...

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 My Hub score for an unpublished article dropped about 5 points in the last hour since I started editing it (it had sat for about a week prior to that).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 matters. Just curious....Steph
