    What causes a drop in a hub score?

    My hub score just went down to its lowest in months. But my traffic is great. How come my hubscore is down?

    Your hubber score is a combination of an average of the scores of your hubs, combined with the contribution that you make to the HubPages community. Commenting, asking and answering questions, participating in forums, and hubhopping all add to your Hubber score. Stopping for a day or two will drop it because you are not contributing. Slowing down will drop it until you pick it back up.  Hope this helps you understand the process.
    Increasing your participation will also help your HubberScore.

      thanks! but does it affect my search engine ranking and ultimately my pageviews?

      At this level, it does not affect anything. If it gets down too far, I believe 75, it could get your listings put way down or even out of the ser. That would affect your views. I wouldn't really worry about it at this point.

    The hubber score is a bit of a mystery. On the one hand it appears to obey the laws of interaction, that is, the more you interact on HubPages the higher it will go. In theory! In practice things are a little different.
    For example, a few weeks ago I didn't do anything on HubPages apart from answer 2 questions in about a week, due to lack of time. My score shot up to 100, stayed there 3 days then as I increased participation, dropped to 96!
    Could it be that there is some underlying linkage energy that affects the hubber score? Other people commenting on your hubs, reading hubs, links being made here, there and everywhere which all influence hubber scores? I don't know.
    I suspect there is no definitive way of forecasting your hubberscore!
    I don't think a lower hubberscore affects traffic but a very low one -  below 75 - ? is unsustainable in the long run? You'd need to check that one out.

      Thanks for that answer. I was starting to think I did something wrong because my hubscore crashed to 87.
