    Is anybody else who is doing the challenge seeing plummeting hub scores or is it just because of the subject matter of my hubs? I hope people aren't downrating the hubs because they disagree with my opinions! I didn't think that was the appropriate use for the up and down voting sad

    My hubscore is up.. But I see it regularly dip down right after publishing a bunch of hubs.. Don't worry it will go right back up and I'm betting it will stay up there for you after the challenge is over smile

    No, sunstreeks... Not author score *hub* score. Two of the three hubs I've published for the challenge are down at 45ish range.

    That often happens to me if I publish a hub relatively soon after starting to write it.  Don't worry, the score will increase.

    Hubs publish at low rates and gain higher numbers as they get traffic. The number will vary for a few days, maybe even a week,  before it stabilizes.

    That's the thing, Whitney -- it's going the other way. I started with I think 47 and am now at 45. This is the first time I've seen a new hub go *down* before.

    I'm sure it will be fine. I don't have many under 70 any more and I have one unpublished hub that's at 73 WOW! LOL

    They fluctuate a good bit before it rises. It's not uncommon at all.

    Okay Whitney, thanks! It's possible I'm just not usually looking this much lol

    Whitney is right, and personally I like to read hubs where people have strong opinions.  A bland hub is sort of boring.

    SweetiePie I have the feeling I'm going to be cranking out a lot of opinionated stuff for the next 30 days. Not what I anticipated doing and yet that's what's happening! I'm grateful to C.Ferreira for making me get my "opinionated" hat out of the closet lol
