    What have I done wrong, this has not happened before, the score of my new hub is going down, despite having received traffic.  I hope I am not being immodest but I believe it is at least as good as other hubs I have written and I have put a lot of work into it - please can someone throw some light on this?  Thanks.

      Don't worry about it.  Score often drops just after publication, but it will quickly rebound and climb to its rightful place.  wink

    I do not know the reason why this happens but you are not alone in this it does happen sometimes. Try not to be concerned and give it time. I notice that you have a profile score of 96 after 6 weeks, well done, you must be doing something right. smile

      Thanks for the swift reply, I thought I must have done something dreadful but have read through all the do's and don'ts and cannot see that I have done anything wrong!  Will wait and see what happens.

        Usually when this happens to me, I put in 1-2 pics, and add in some polls and other modules. smile

    I have learned to deal with the fluctuating hub scores.

    And all I really am concerned about is writing original content and when you do that too, then you should have nothing to worry about. You can spice up your hubs with more capsules and links and great keywords and promote it unceasingly. But even if you do, your hub score will still probably fluctuate so worrying will really get you nowhere.

    What I am still confused about is the fluctuating score under my photo.
