Why is it my new hub's scores dive before they start to climb.
they start at around 50 and dive to around 44 and start to climb. Does the number of times I edit it after I publish bring the score down? or is it simply the first few who read my stuff hate it.
Don't worry about the Hub score, just write hubs.. mine do it all the time.
Initially new hub vies for finding a favor with search engines and once it becomes the favor of search engines, people comment on it and it also depends on your active participation in Hot questions and Forums so that your fans and followers view the hubs lifting the score slow and steady. Average profile score will not be affected.
This is something I had experienced too, and I changed few of the pictures that I had used and it climbed up soon. In some cases even without intervention it would drop by 2 to 3 points and then climb up.
Could be a glitch or the fact that we are watching the score too closely too soon. :-) So, let's keep writing and let's keep enjoying.
By the way, I enjoyed reading your hub on finding Spock's brain.

Obviously there is no traffic since it is not published. And is it beneficial to let them sit and hibernate until their numbers are really up before publishing?

I feel good when my score is going up. I feel important and get noticed by others.

My new Hub is scored at 39. I've never had such a low score. Have I done something wrong with this Hub? It's getting traffic and comments too.
