Why is it when you publish a new hub your score drops? Not encouraging at all.
Is it that the new hub starts at a lower score and pulls down your overall score? If that is the case, it would make more sense not to include the new hubs in the overall score until after a few days. This may be difficut to do but would avoid the frequent fluctuations in score
You should not worry for the fluctuations in the hub or hubber score because these scores are determined by several factors. Traffic, comments, sharing, revenue, vote up, vote down, making comments, asking questions, answering a question, frequency of hub publishing and several other factors. Reason for drop in hub score of a new hub may be traced in delay in indexing of hub by search engines, internal traffic from hubpages etc. To get acquainted with different aspects please read http://premsingh.hubpages.com/hub/Whats … -hubscore_
don't allow that to bother you because it will soon move up again when you least expect, it is normal for that to occur.
Try holding your hub for a few day before publishing it. It brings the score of mine up every time. Then you won't be having the fluctuations. I don't worry about them though.
The score of each of your hubs are probably averaged, and somehow affect your HubScore. The more hubs you have written in total, the less each additional hub will affect the average.
Don't worry about it, the shifts will become less dramatic as you write more quality hubs.
Can't say i've ever paid attention. I just write and then ignore everything except the views. Always seemed to work for me

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

I am a new hubber and I am getting low hub scores from the beginning despite my sincere efforts to produce good quality hubs. Does low hub scores mean that no follow is applicable to my hubs.

Hi all - its been a while since I've been on the forums. I'd love to see a new feature that would allow us to schedule a hub to be published. When editing a hub, the score tends to drop a bit, and I would love to be able to press publish, but allow it to continue...
