    I just edited and improved all of my hubs....

    As soon as I did this, I noticed that my Hubber score dropped to 83. Why would this be???

    Honestly, I don't know too much about the Hubber score, but I feel like it is more of a general thing than an exact thing.  If it dropped 10 points, that's a big deal, but if it dropped 5, it might just be a normal fluctuation of some sort.

      Google couldn't care less about your score...

    Seems  I read somewhere if too many hubs are edited at once could cause temporary drop in scores.

      Oh, ok, Thank you. It just dropped again. I thought I was doing a good thing.

    Not sure.  From what Hubpages explains, the hub scores, and hubber score is determined through a process of many factors (though it doesn't ever explain what that process is exactly) I'd speculate it could have to do with how much you comment on other hubs and/or answers, your activity on Hubpages, how many new hubs you write, update, how many are featured, etc

      Secrest process I guess.

    I don't know how the scoring works, but I've noticed the same thing if I publish more than one new hub a day. Even if they end having over an 80 when the get get reviewed, my score tends to drop for a day or so.

    Author scores, hub scores or whatever you call them, don't impact your search engine ranks whatsoever, so I wouldn't worry about it.  I almost think some of us have a penalty, anyway - especially if you have been flagged, rated down, have a lot of outbound links, or have got in trouble on the forums before, etc.  The reason why I think that, is because I have seen some people with loads of well-written hubs with poor scores, yet there are others with terribly written hubs with high author scores.  In fact, I've seen some folks that only had 1 or 2 hubs that was obviously slapped together, and had higher scores than a lot of people.
    Something seems odd about the algorithm behind all of that, to say the least.
    The other thing that matters, is the no-follow/do-follow properties.
    In the past, all you had to do was have an author score of 75 or higher and all of your links counted as do-follow, now they have recently changed that to 85 and up.  If you link out a lot to outside websites, it seems to lower your scores, as well, even though the foundation of the world wide web is based on links, so go figure...

      Hmmm. Very Interesting. As far as I know I have never been flagged, would I know that?

      Lets just say, if you make a lot of people mad, the score seems to drop; ha!  I've moved most of my hubs to other places, just saying...

    Mine have been below the ninety mark for over a week now.  I thought it was because I had not recently posted new hubs and that I needed to edit some of my old one.  That theory turned out to be wrong because after posting several new hubs in a row for a three day period of time, it did nothing to bring up my score. Perhaps its other factors responsible beyond our control.

      Apparently. I published a new hub. and edited/improved the rest and dropped 12 points.  ????

      The no-follow/do-follow spam defense really dropped a lot of peoples' score that linked out a lot.  Not sure if you do, but just saying that, yet again, the rules have changed.

      Go hub hopping, it always raises the score.
