Author score confusion

    Author score confusion

    This is my second day on hubpages so I'm relatively new. I have noticed that my author score seems to keep dropping while the scores for my actual hubs are slowly rising. What do I need to do to bring my author score up and does it matter too much?

    It is normal to have a low score being new to HP. Keep being active and you'll get it up. It will just take some time.

    I don't know whether it matters or not, but maybe some hubbers would prefer to read high scored hubs of high scored authors. This is just a supposition because I didn't face this in my beginnings, they were all encouraging and helpful.

    I will have a look on your hubs. Welcome to HP smile

    It takes a few days for google to find you and get everything sorted out. If you keep writing useful content you will have a normal hubberscore in no time.

    Hello ElvenaDracos!

    HubScores and HubberScores are evaluated by an algorithm created by HubPages and no one really knows exactly how the algorithm works. However, there are things you can do to generally increase both scores. If you would like more in-depth information on how to bring up your scores, check out this article: … bber-Score

    Please keep in mind that HubScores and HubberScores do not define or reflect your earnings. They are a raw/average score based on a number of variables.

    I hope this answers your question!

    The same happened for me. I published a hub and my author score dropped down to 65; when earlier it was 71.. I was first worried about this, but later on found out that it doesn't matter much as long as you publish more and more hubs and contribute to the hubpages community..
       Hope this helped...

      It was the same for me in the beginning when having few hubs. After I could write some more hubs, my hubbercore doesn't get influenced by the hubscore that much. I'm also active somewhere else. This is what I've been noticing, none knows how it works
