Why is my hubscore plummeting?? Help?
So I've been a member for about a week and a half and then I got a notification saying that 2 of my questions I submitted were closed being due to being more of a discussion kind of question. I took a 10 point loss on my hubscore (78 to 68) and after the loss I tried to gain them back by being extra active (posting new hubs, conversing in forums, submitting good questions, answering questions, commenting on others hubs and commenting back on my own, etc) but for the past 2 days they have quickly fallen seemingly no matter what I do. My current hubscore is 27. Anyone know what to do?
You might be following too many people without reading their hubs.

Our hubscores fluctuate all of the time. If you are producing high quality hubs, it's nothing to worry about, unless you are doing something else to make it fall.
I see that you've only been here for nine days, have written a few hubs and have followed many people. When you follow so many people without actually engaging with them (commenting on hubs, answering questions), it tends to make your score fall. The closed questions doesn't help, either, but you'll learn from that experience.
It takes much work to get your hubscore up and to keep it up. I'd say you should first check out the Learning Center (it has so much helpful information!), work on your hubs, give quality comments, and ask appropriate questions. It'll take some time, but you should see your hubscore increase then.
It also might be the big number of questions you are adding, some of them being similar to others. There is an option to check if a similar question was asked before so you can avoid duplicating the same again and again.
As Peter Owen points out in the article, it's better to gain score naturally and keep yuou activities balanced - without overdoing one or another.
Thanks guys! As I'm new I figured it was much like twitter or something where you just follow whomever you wish to network with to establish yourself in the community. I always did the check similar questions and never found any duplicates. It may not be searching thoroughly because I'm using mobile safari. Possible theory. If I leave comments on each hub I follow and send fan mail to each then will it matter how many I follow? Thank you so much for the help everyone. I really appreciate it

I feel good when my score is going up. I feel important and get noticed by others.

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 my hubscore is slowly decreasing. Any advice from expert Hubbers on how to...

Why is my hubscore stuck at 84 for a couple of weeks?I have been commenting on hubs, answered questions, commenting in forums, deleted bad hubs, improving others etc. It has been stuck at the horribly annoying number 84 for too many days for me to cope with. Without a 85+ score I can never hope to...

Will commenting on my own hubs raise my Hubscore and the hubscore of an article?I've been avoiding responding to comments on my own hubs, because I only want comments by others to appear in my comment count. But, if putting my own comments in raises the score and the Hubpages cash, I'm willing to...

As a christians is it wrong to be blunt and direct when commenting on Hubs or any other time?I have no problems being blunt and direct when making my comments on Hubs. There may be some who consider it rude. So if this is true, when Jesus Christ called Scribes and Priests "vipers", was he...
