    Okay, I'm going crazy here. I put up a hub on the Writer's Strike and since I put it up this morning its hubscore has dropped like a stone, despite the fact that it has had visitors from outside hubpages as I asked my friends to visit, give thumbs, etc.

    I really don't understand it and this has never happened before. It has a lot of links, but they all go to different websites and I know I have hubs with even more links than this that don't have this problem.

    So, can you guys take a look and offer some advice.  The content is 100% original, I wrote it myself, so that's not an issue.

    There was a glitch in the score-maker-machine a few days ago, which made one of my new hubs drop down to about a 10 before it got fixed. Perhaps the glitch is back?

    Strange.  Looks like a good hub to me.

    It looks like it is on the way back up.  I think we had some glitches overnight again, primarily affecting new hubs.

    I has the same problem with one of my new hubs. The starting score was 40 which I have never had happen before. They usually start around 60
