Do the scores on your hub increase over time or do they stay the same?
I am wondering because my first published hub has a much higher score than my other two, but I am wondering if thats a sign of age/comments etc.
It is possible for a hub's score to go up over time. But that depends on its longevity and traffic. A hub that doesn't 'go out of date' will likely increase in score over time. But if the subject matter gets old (like talking about one particular season of a show) it will likely fall in both score and traffic.
Thanks, I get what you are saying about my content being timely and not evergreen. I have been thinking about what kind of content I might want to create outside of episode recaps.
If you are doing recaps and reviews of TV shows, traffic will definitely fall off. I do that for my blog, premiumcablereviews, and I get hits on the review the first couple of weeks and then almost nothing.
Another point about reviews, you have to compete against some heavy hitters. Huff Post does reviews and all the newspapers and entertainment websites. You are in a tough category with reviews. I write mine just because I enjoy doing them. I don't put them on HubPages because HP wants "evergreen" topics.
My scores have jumped and lowered and been around the globe in the past year. Keep in mind that even when making an improvement to your page your score may lower (or raise) because it is subjective and and not definitive.
Here is the scale that your hub is subjectively scored from: http://hubpages.com/help/hub_hop_table#informational

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?

Hub scores - yes, I have read it but it is confusing. I look at some Hubbers who have been around for 2 years and their score is through the roof with little or no activity - it is mainly the Google traffic...

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...
