    Why is my author score continuing to fall?

    I've been posting good hubs that have gotten a lot of views, participating in the forums, answering and making questions, and commenting on others hubs, yet it still continues to fall sad
    What am I doing wrong?

    I'm positive it's something to do with a 'lack' of Hubs, compared to your followers. Not sure though, but in most cases of bad score, it's because of more following then Hubs.

    Author score is based on the quality of what you write. Not the amount. If you type in the search box ' author score' >questions> it will be the first link.

    It is not the quantity that is measured by the author score -- it is the value of performance like sincerity in following, constructive comments and continuous desire to learn and improve your craft.

    Sometimes even if we are balanced and put out good pages the score drops because people are voting our pages down.
    At my best high traffic times my score has dropped, even though I thought it should be going up.With writing about controversial subjects expect the scores will drop at some times of high traffic because everyone doesn't agree.

    Hey Outside - I can't answer your question but i have noticed and wondered why you had/have such a low author score.I noticed you had a score of just 1 a week or so back and wondered what you did to merit it given your activity,followers and accolades for such a short period of time.I don't think i've ever noticed anyone else with those factors and such a low score.Definitely seems strange but i haven't gone through all your activity or hubs - must be something amiss.Hope you find out soon.GL

    I'm still new here, learning the ropes. I can't figure any of it out.

    I was at a total loss because  my hubs had average scores, but then all of a sudden, they all went up but my author score went down.  Now, how do you figure that? Doesn't make any sense to me. 

    But I don't really give too much thought to a score. I write because I love to write, and that's all that really matters to me.
