    Hi. I have a few questions that I hope someone is patient enough to help me with.

    I somehow lost a point on my author score and I didn't do anything except publish another hub. What gives?

    What is the purpose of the falling traffic/rising traffic icons? Am I supposed to do anything or is it just a data point? One of my hubs has falling traffic, but it is only 2 days old. Am I wrong to think the appropriate course of action is just to let the hub age?

      Welcome to Hubpages!  PhilD did a good job answering your questions.  Your hubscore will fly all over the place all within the same day.  We're all used to it.  Nothing to worry about.

    Wow, were all questions as exact as your.  Actually, you answered most of them.  The author score is a moving target.  It updates every 24 to 48 hours from what I can tell and has many variable included such as community involvement as well as you own hubs and their performance.  I have even heard that their earning power has at least a little weight.  Here is a good read on the subject. http://hubpages.com/hub/hubberscore.  Just for completeness, here is one for the hub score as well. http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubscore

    As for the traffic notifications, you are exactly right.  They are a data point.  The simply give you a quick look at how your hubs are doing from day to day.  Allow them to age and these will start to mean a little more.  They did for me anyway.

    Hope this helped.  Feel free to ask any other questions you might have.

    Hey thats a good question everyone over here have...

    Well, it happens all the time... one or two to and fro... From my knowledge, it is calculated on the basis of overall activity while we are signed in. You go ahead, create hubs, answer those questions u know, ask questions if u doubt anything, join fan clubs... etc.. etc.... it all pays. Hub score is supposed to change two or three points up or down in each 24hrs.

    So don't worry my friend. We all have the same experience.

    Hope it helps...
