    Scores for 7 of my 11 hubs just tanked overnight?

    I realize scores can drop over time from lack of readership.  And I've had dramatic jumps from making improvements. 

    I'm new here, but have seen hubs slip a bit from week to week, then come back up.

    But we're talking drops of more close to ten points (maybe more on a couple of then) since this weekend.

    The ones that dropped suddenly include an editors choice and a rising star, possibly even my hub that was hub of the day.

    I'm kind of in shock to suddenly have so few high-ish scored hubs overnight. I had seven or more scores I would consider pretty good, now I have 2.  Thoughts?

    Someone else asked this question earlier. Evidently it has affected a number of people and there is a forum discussion about it: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/123705.

    Gee, with all that going for you. I'd say you are an expert. Seriously. Don't worry about it.  Congratulations on a job well done.

      Thank you--I'd been feeling really good.  And was happy to break 1,000 views....but distraught to see such a fast deline.

    Junkseller is exactly correct.  This is apparently a site wide issue that nobody has yet to explain.  Plenty of people here are very upset.

      I'm not happy for any of us but am relieved it isn't just me.  Did it happen to any of yours?

      RockyMountainMom:  Of course it did.  I have 136 articles here and just about all of them took major hits.

      Now that I've found the other forums, I've seen more affected hubbers than I can count!  At the time I posted this, though, I was wondering if the folks that answered so far were just being nice : )

    junkseller, I'm not sure why my response to you went away.  Thank you...I will go read up, as I didn't see the other question/forum.

    The same thing has happened to a lot of us and it has yet to be explained adequately. My Hubber score actually rose by two points but four hubs dropped suddenly to under 60 and were temporarily unfeatured. I added videos to them and they were re featured, but one of my highest rating hubs suddenly dropped 30 points from 87 to just 57 and I can't get it back up...weird.

      I've now read some of the forums--and a drop of 30 points is the craziest I've heard so far!  Though there are plenty I didn't read.  I was wondering how many people were having hubs unfeatured.  I read it was "normal" in a comment from a cofounder!

    John,
    Did you try talking to it softly while playing quiet music? :-)
    Seriously, did you proofread it very carefully to make sure that nothing was missed?

      Haha Kevin, it has been up in the high 80s for months it isn't new. "The Good the Bad and the Bugly"...no reason for the drop of that proportion I can see.

      John,
      I think that if you carefully proofread/edit that Hub it may help. I began to look it over and found a few.
