My hub score seems to go down when I add a new one

    I used to think that the overall hub score went up when you added new hubs but lately I have had the reverse of this happening and am wondering why and if this happens to other people? It seems to drop just after a new hub is posted but goes back up after about a day.

    Same thing happens to me each time I publish a new hub.  I seem to recall reading somewhere here when I first started about such a phenomenon and there was no clear cut reason why it happens, it's just known to happen...

    That probably didn't help at all, but at least you know that you're not alone!

    If you publish it with a 50 score it will lower the average score of your cumulative hubs.  I am not sure if this is why the hubber score drops but it might have an influence.

    I take awhile to publish a hub so the score rises dramatically before published.  I never noticed my hubberscore drop after publishing a hub.

    Hello Bard of Ely, you just have to give your hubs time to grow.. This happens to me all the time.

    Mine goes down and then comes up too! The trick is to hold onto your hubs for an extra day or two so that the score simmers a little, then you will not see a significant drop in your score.smile

    It's really nothing to stress about...it will go up, you are changing your scores when adding a new one...that is all.

    Thank you, everyone, for all this advice! I am glad it's not just me it happens to!
