Why does a deleted, never-featured hub apparently count toward my Hubber score?
Today I deleted an old Hub that didn't pass QA. I'd kept it around, without mods or re-submission, pending replacement by a new, much better hub. I submitted the replacement hub yesterday, and it passed QA on the first try.
Though the now-deleted hub was "up" only for hours during QA, it strangely continues to have a score (67) that is dragging down my overall (Hubber?) score. The replacement hub, which momentarily has a score of 73 — which seems to be rising — is my only hub. I'm a relative newbie to HubPages.
How come? Anything I can do about this? Should I even be concerned about it?
The Hub will show up as available to be undeleted for 24 hours in case you change your mind on deleting it. In that time frame, yes, it contributes to the score.
When it is no longer in the list of hubs for your account, it should no longer impact your Hub score.

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

I am looking for 5 things that will increase my hubber score.Assume there are enough articles to manipulate and about 200 featured but a ton "less than". The hubber does not network and just wants to raise the score. There is no angst or financial issue, just raise that score.Should...

I was delighted to see my hubber score climb to 90 yesterday. Today after I published another hub that also got featured (and in just an hour this time), I noticed that my score fell by 3 points. How come? I know hub scores can fluctuate but hubber scores? I even had a comment on my new hub...

That is damn strange, James. I'm sorry you're going through this, it does seem punitive.
