Three of my hubs are in the 60's. The lowest one I just posted for fun, kind of a creative writing exercise. Should I do anything to fix it? I'd appreciate any type of feedback:
When starting out, generally it's about writing a good few article/Hubpages and then measuring what you learn from your stats against what works traffic wise.
Even hubpages below the score of 70 can have a good stream of traffic, so I wouldn't worry about your scores for this and that.
I would hope you shouldn't worry, because I have a few in that range too
For individual Hubs, you shouldn't worry about scores like that. More personal or experimental stuff just doesn't get that much traffic or interest. I've got a few with scores like that myself. Your overall AuthorScore is in the 90s, which is a great score.
I read somewhere here that a hubscore below 75 has a 'no follow' link for the page (meaning the search engines will not index the page), so no one will find your hub by doing a [Google] search for instance. You'd need your own backlinks to the hub.
As far as worrying goes...no, there's absolutely no point in worrying about anything which you have no control over...so stop already!
Not true. First, the " no follow" tag means search engines don't follow any outbound links found on that Hub. It can still be indexed. Second, the threshold at which the "no follow" tag is triggered is a score of 40 or lower for individual Hubs. It will apply to all Hubs in an account if the AuthorScore falls below 75.
I have a few there myself. The average always stays above 70, but some just don't do well. Some I understand and knew they wouldn't get high scores when I wrote them. Some I expected to do better and am surprised that they did not, but those are balanced off by hubs that surprise me in the other direction.
Thanks everyone! I should have known better than to worry about the number - I really am much more of a word-girl! I guess I had a momentary dip in my self-esteem. That happens sometimes. I appreciate the help and encouragement!

My Hub "People Almost Met: Lily at the Pool" recently had a hub score of 100 and stayed at the level for about two weeks. Now it is in the 60's. It has lots of comments and about average views (for my hubs). Anyone know what I can do about this?

As asked in title. I know it's subjective, but in your opinion, what is the lowest score you would allow an article to remain up before editing or un-publishing it?Understand that I am new here, so putting feelers out on how to do it right!

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

No update on the stats in 32 hours. Yesterday my Hubber Profile score dropped a point and when I signed in this morning it had dropped another point. My hub score has rapidly dropped 2 points. Is there a connection between the stats not updating and my Hubber score? Seems like a pretty rapid...
