    Okay, I realize hub scores fluctuate, but yesterday mine dropped 5 points in just a couple of hours. WHY?? I wasn't doing anything differently. Thanks for any insight!

      I just don't even worry about it. I've read that a lot of things go into your hub score. In the end I would imagine the quality of your writing has a lot to do with it. Maybe that's why I seem to be stuck in the eighties! lol

    I've been trying to figure that out since I signed on, scores appear to change for no reason I can recognize. The other day I was an 87 and it jumped to 94. I like it, but have no clue why, nothing changed, average views stayed the same, particpiation the same, ect. No new hub, just increased. Its better than a decrease, but I've have that too. So when you figure it out let me know.

    I would like to know Why my Hub article scores reach the mid eighties and high seventies and then immediately all drop down to mid sixties? hmm

    I have considered that perhaps it relates to page views; but then it still seems to happen on my average days. 

    To me: It's a complete turn off as I know that the writing quality is often higher than higher scoring hubs that I've read.

    Any Actual Light on this? hmm

    Hubscores shmubscores, don't worry about the score, just worry about putting out decent hubs.  I joined here about 9 months ago and every couple of weeks there's a forum post about hubscores.  Honestly, they don't bring you more traffic, comments etc, so don't waste valuable writing time worrying about it.

      Hi Cindy.... How's the biz going? big_smile
      I know what you are saying is correct and I agree; But I hate seeing my work chopped back as soon as it starts reaching a ninety article score. It appears that Only highly commercial product reviews maintain 85+ article scores. hmm
      You know.... If I drive; I wish to understand how the steering wheel works!! smile

    Ah yes the elusive mystery of the jumping hubscore. Mine changes all the time and for apparently no logical reason what so ever, still trying to figure that one out! smile

    stuff you do while on HP isn't instantaneous. It takes a little while for the score to be affected by whatever it's being affected by. So it may have just refreshed and adjusted within that time. Like cindy said--they aren't all that important in the grand scheme of things but they are hard to ignore for the most of us too. Just try and prepare yourself for the constant fluctuations smile

    Mine shifts around all the time smile

    Well personally, I wish to know. Once I know the whys and hows, I then have the ability to make the appropriate adjustments.
    Given that it also has been promoted as being a facet of the writer's score; then potentially my writer's score will as a result, never climb above 94, until I have produced a much higher number of hubs! 
    I Might Be a Complete Idiot in how I do things.. but I see the article score as being of value to my choices of writing subjects, irrespective of the unknown factors and SEO! hmm
