I posted my first Hub this morning. It got a score of 71 and was marked as featured. I figured OK, I got a C on my paper. Better luck next time. Now, I see it's still featured but the score has dropped to 62. Will it now become unfeatured? Why did the score drop? Is there some way I can tell what specifically I need to address to raise the score? I appreciate your help. Thanks!
The QAP re-evaluates a Hub each time it is edited and each time it can receive a different score. There then may be slight adjustments as the final score is assigned. If you give it a little time, you are likely to see this adjustment occur.
My adjustment was pretty steep... Is there a way to find out what specifically caused the low score. For my hub, I suspect it's Substance, but I don't know.
Unfortunately, we don't have the resources to give feedback on each Hub related to the QAP.
That being said, I reviewed the Hub and here are some things I noticed.
1. A reader would expect to see a recipe based on the Hub title, but the Hub appears to have a large introductory section that seems unrelated to a recipe.
2. The Hub also reads like a personal blog.
3. It could benefit from more detailed images illustrating the recipe.
This forum is also a great place to get feedback related to improving Hubs.
I, too, am having problems with my hubscore. I was at an 89 and for whatever reason has been dropping consistently no matter what I do. I'm not at an 84, which is frustrating because from my understanding I am no a "no follow" hub. Can anyone take a look and help me figure out what exactly is going on?
From my understanding "no follow" is to do with outbound links not the hubs, it just means the outbound links wont get any credit on search engines.
HubberScore are largely a reflection of the quality of an author's Hubs and their resulting HubScores.
So much if it comes down to how your Hubs are doing with the site QAP.
You can find more about the QAP here.
Here are some general tips for creating great Hubs.

Try to aim for an 8 or higher on this table.

Welcome to HP, Spirota. I just took a look at your hub. One thing I would suggest is that the recipe be moved to the top, just after the 2 intro photos. Every recipe has a story, but most of the story should come later. You could tell a little bit the story of this recipe first, then give the recipe itself, but definitely move the story of the Dodgers & Yankees further down the page. I hope this helps. BTW, I did not see a follow button on the hub, but it is still there on your profile page. Good luck.
Opps, I just now saw that it was Kelsey who was concerned about being a no-follow.
Kelsey, your follow button is alive and well on your profile page, at this time (6/4/15). My hubber score keeps jumping around, too. I think it may be based on the number of views our profile pages get each week, and that varies, too. We can't please everyone, huh?
Thank you all for the insightful tips. I'm hoping to see my score balance out soon. It just seemed so weird to continuously drop from a decent score to a no-follow in the course of three days. We'll see what happens with some edits, I suppose. Thanks all!

Just few days ago, I posted a hub which I think was well-organised. However, after posting that hub I saw my author score dropping around 2 points. Can anyone explain why did it happen?
