Has anyone noticed a drop in their profile score after they unpublished a hub?
My profile score dropped several points after I unpublished a couple of hubs that weren't generating sufficient traffic, and were tagged with those dreadful half-moons. I was wondering if anyone else had a similar experience.
Hi Genna. Yes, mine dropped also after I unpublished a few hubs due to lack of traffic. Actually, both my hub and hubber scores have been steadily dropping since the niche sites implementation began. It is very discouraging.
One of my hubs went crazy with views, over 45K in seven days - yet even with that my profile score has dropped.
I never look at, nor care about "scores" any more. Having stayed on 100% for about 3 years, I took a sabbatical from contributing and both my overall rating and comments rating dropped drastically. How unfair to drop your comments rating! After all, you are the same person you were before you took a break.
But it's the old carrot and stick routine, although in HP's case, it's nearly all stick!
Let me experiment with this and revert to you with the finding.

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

In the past 12 hours my profile score dropped from 94 to 84. Does anyone know why?I published 2 new hubs in this time but can't find anything wrong with them. My traffic is up, and my hubscores haven't changed much.

My Hub Profile score has dropped from 91 to 86. Am I being punished?I recently began answering questions centered around politics. Since then, my overall score has dropped. This is the only change I have made and it seems ridiculous.

I would also like to know what determines my profile score. Does anyone know?I am always happy to see my profile score up in the 90's, but what determines it? What makes it go up or down?

I have recently begun to completely revamp my hubs. I am publishing several revamped hubs per day. Can this have a negative effect on my HP profile score, Google rankings etc.??
