Glad to be part of Hubpages!
I'll be brief with my newbie question.
I did look at days' worth of helps first...
So, I saw a question I wanted to post an answer. Turned out too long, so accepted the option to turn into a Hub.
It was just an answer, so, I added a quick appropriate photo to the top, removed all ads, and did my thing.
Seems I got a +1 at the end of it quickly, but...
The number at the top is 49 and my profile number went from 30 to 29 or 28 ?
Thanks kindly !
Hubscore and profile score is always changing.
Technically if you're here to make money it DOESN'T matter - it's just an internal indication of how your page and you are doing.
It won't effect your chances of being viewed through google - and google and outside sources are where the visitors (and the money clicks) are.
New hubs will nearly always have a low score for a few days - and the shorter they are the lower they will usually start.
It's best to try and make hubs at least 500-700 words minimum up to 1500 words.
Have a look at my guide (listed on my profile) about how to write quality hubs.
Good luck and welcome to HP!

Dear HubTeam:I know there have been a few forum threads about this topic, but hear me out please. By the way, this thread refers to the rating down of hubs, not flagging. I have no problem with the flagging feature and see it as a necessary evil. Even if someone misuses it, they have to go through...
