An embarassing question about my hub

    My new hub on how to get rid of acne and other skin blemishes FOREVER went up about two hours ago.

    Despite having only three visitors, the rating for it has declined by 5 points. LOL How is that possible?

    It's original work and it's great information with no attempt to sell anybody anything that I would profit from.

    Anyway, how did it drop 5 points with three visitors?

    The best to you.

    Kelley, it's pretty common for the hubscore of brand new hubs to fluctuate wildly. Give it a few days to settle in and you'll see that the score will gradually rise.

    So far I see that Hubpages is using a number of algorithms to calculate the hubscore. Traffic is just one of them. So don't worry, what you observe is normal wink

    Has anyone else noticed Hubscores dropping?   I just logged in to find that ALL my Hubscores have taken a dive. My highest is now 89, whereas I had a few in the 90's on the weekend.

      Mine all seem to be doing their usual thing(s).

        Mine too... Nothing abnormal with my hub scores. They all look about the same to me.

    Well, *my* scores have dropped for no apparent reason.

    My booty jeans hub, which has always gotten steady daily traffic, is higher in traffic than ever before, is ranked 1 on Google (at the moment, anyway) for "booty jeans" and also "big booty jeans" (it was usually about 5th or 6th before) ---- and the hub score is a 91 right now.

    For the last half year its been 99 and 100.

    So yeah, if something isn't wrong, something has definitely changed.

    Not sure about scores cause don't watch them closely, but the traffic definitely dropped because yahoo devalued hubpages for some reason. My squiddo lenses on the same topics where not anywhere near the top for my keywords, and now they replaced my hubs that where up there... But looks like things are returning to norm now...

    The scores on my hubs have been dropping steadily, which I attributed to low traffic. My highest scoring hubs have dipped and so have my lowest scoring hubs. The large majority of my hubs are sleeping in the middle range. But traffic has definitely slowed lately overall.

    I agree with that. My traffic isn't heavy compared with some, but it was climbing steadily for about three months until about mid Feb, when for no obvious reason it went into decline, in spite of publishing four or five new hubs. A bit odd. I put it down to Easter, but that's over now.

    Hubscore fluctuates all the time. I wouldn't worry about it. It's almost impossible to follow a hubscores fluctuations.
