Why the fluctuations in readership?
I've been getting a total of over a 1000 hits a month on my hubs. Suddenly they drop to 600. Haven't don't anything different. Can anyone explain?
There are probably too many factors to really narrow it down without more information. Could be that google made some changes. Peoples tastes are fickle, could be they aren't searching the criteria that matches your hubs. Are they all relatively new hubs, because your views could be skewed by those reading them in the hub hopper.
Coming off the holiday season its normal to see a drop depending on the types of hubs you have. Also, with warmer weather people are spending more time outdoors than cooped up inside.
Really too many possibilities without more information. Try using google analytics to see what search criteria people were using. Or you can add a sitemap to help increase traffic.
A few of the things that I noticed make a difference in my traffic are publishing new content regularly, Pandas, Different days of the week (I get more traffic on the weekends), Participating in the hubpages community, self promotion like facebook and other platforms. These all make a big difference in the amount of traffic I get my suggestion would be keep track of big spikes and drops and what they have in common when they happen thats what I do. I also hear that google annalytics helps keep track of these things.

Should I remove hubs with lower ratings? Will that help or hurt my readership?

I looked at my hub scores today and cried. They have been falling steadily for two weeks from 70's & 80's to 60's and 70's with one 59. Today, one of my hubs has fallen to a 50. HP is sending me mixed signals. I am told to write in a niche that I am passionate about with...

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 noticed yesterday that one of my hubs about responsible use of water resources had its readership just explode! It had always been steadily getting about ten or so hits a day, which I thought was respectable if not exceptional. But yesterday it jumped to over a hundred hits! It's still up...
