I joined a couple of days ago and have posted two hubs ... my authorscore is 18. I have no idea why. I've seen spammers on this site with higher scores (usually around 30). Yet for some reason my score plunged after I posted, and dropped again by a couple points when my hubscore went up a couple points. I've been proactively commenting and rating on other peoples' hubs and participating in the questions forum. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you greatly in advance; I'm pretty baffled.
I am also learning that hubscore goes up and down even for experienced hubbers. Just write more hubs, answer questions, participate in forum and it will go up. Mine goes up and down too.
You are not the first person to experience this. Give it time, maybe a week or so, your score should soon start correcting itself. I looked through your hubtivity, which seems fine. Active is good, hyperactive is not, so take it nice and slow but keep doing what you are doing.
Well now I see your score is 19 so it's coming up!!
I agree 100% with Website Examiner - Just give it a bit more time and it should rise. Best of luck here at HP!
The number does not influence anything except outgoing link quality, which is another basic way from stopping spammers signing up and getting high quality links to their sites.
So the best advice is to ignore it and keep writing and interacting with the community. It has no influence on rankings, earnings or traffic.
It will rise on its own and if you're an active member you'll probably hit 90 in a few months and won't go below that.
My score usually varies in a 5 point range.
Welcome to HP, scores do go north and south.. all the time, keep on writing good content and it will keep moving upwards..
The real deal is to enjoy what you do.. the rest will follow. Hope you have a great time here! Best wishes!
Thank you very much for the encouragement! Great to meet you!
Also, something I just suggested to someone on another thread, make use of the RSS and News Capsules because search engines love to see fresh content updated daily.

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...
