OK I have concluded my test.
I created a hub 2 days ago, I did not click the hub once after publish, this hub started of 40 then the next day it was at 79,
Now yesterday I created another hub, and after publishing the hubscore was at 49, after publishing I must have clicked this hub 20-30 times myself, now the hubscore is at 31. so clicking on your own hub does drop the score dramatically.
Please go try for yourself.
My hub "The Fiasco of the Fourth" dropped 10 points overnight. WOW!
I agree. Traffic seems to be slow over the past few days and I have noticed hub score ranging from 96 to 94 depending on the time of day. Can't really understand it and have just decided to let it go.
I can discern no rational process behind my the scores on either my individual hubs or the hub score on my profile. I barely even worry about them anymore. I'm more interested in my ad revenue.
I believe there was a forum thread a few days ago on the same subject where others were noticing the same thing with their newer Hubs. I have found the initial hubscore on a new hub will start out low and then climb over the next few days. I also believe the hubscore can change if someone decides to rate your hub negatively, but don't hold me to that.... I do have one hub that I wrote when I came to hubpages and the hubscore fluctuates from 90 to 83.

Just noticed that the Hub score decreases after a period of time, I know learning all the time. Also noticed your overall Hubscore goes up and down, so what does one do to make them get higher or just remain constant ?

I am sort of disappointed. I try to be active in the site as much as possible, comment on other people's hubs, help out in the forums, add new hubs once every two weeks, participate in the question and answer and...

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...
