What does that number in your picture mean? I started out at 30 then dropped to 29 for some reason.
You'll probably want to check out the FAQ,
The number is your hub score. It is made up of points you receive for your hubs and/or your answers to questions.
Your hubs are voted either up or down according to how the reader feels about it. If your hub is voted up, your score goes up; if your hub is voted down, your score goes down. The same is true of any answers you give.
In order to keep your hub score moving up, you must post hubs and/or answer questions (as I'm doing now) that have some value to the reader.
Using this answer as an example - I have gained one point by answering this question. If people wo read it agree with what I have written and vote me up, my score will rise. Of course, there is the chance that someone will disagree and give me a negative vote which will bring my hub score down.
Keep publishing quality material and your score will rise.

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

Has anyone noticed a marked change in their hub scores? I only noticed today so not sure if it happened today or in the recent past.. But some of my hubs have seen a marked increase from 70's and 80's into the 90's and even a 100...Is anyone else seeing a real change?

My Hub Profile score has dropped from 91 to 86. Am I being punished?I recently began answering questions centered around politics. Since then, my overall score has dropped. This is the only change I have made and it seems ridiculous.
