    I just saw a hub(not mine) that has score 43 in 15 minutes of publishing. Normally it's 50 when getting published...Right?

    Is there a known reason for hubscore to come suddenly down?

    That's normal. It's not uncommon for a hub to drop a few points after first publication, and as traffic comes to the hub, the score will usually stabilize after a week or so, sometimes a little longer.

    Well, it takes time for the Hubscore to really reflect the content offered. If after a week the Hubscore isn't at around ~65 then I think thats a good sign to "rewrite or add to". You really shouldn't worry about the Hubscore till after it is indexed by Google and about 30 people view it (or one week, whatever comes first). But this is your own discretion, I love having all my hubs at least 70 or higher, I look at it almost like a grade from school. 0-60 Fail, 61-69 Ok, 70-75- Average, 76-80 Above Average, 81-85 Great, 86-90 Awesome, 91-95 Extreme, 96-100 All Star Blow out smile

    That's just my personal look on my own Hubscores. I don't apply that ranking till a few days after I publish. Just because it is low doesn't mean its bad as the score isn't based upon what is being said in the article.

    I worried at first too, mine all the do the same thing. Give it some time before stressing out about it! It will come up.

    Ok, I can understand. But, still this makes me to wonder: While looking at hubtivity I saw a hub has got a score of 63 in just 5 minutes after publishing Normally, it's only 50(score) for every new hub at beginning. (that hub has something about GAY as the title says, I didn't read the hub) How? Is it because of hot topic? Or google indexed so fast??

    if you are worried for dropping down of hubscore you leave it unpublished for sometime and then publish it.

      If you can read it well, I was not talking about my hubs. It's clearly mentioned smile

        What presingh is trying to say when creating a new hub, if you leave it unpublished for several days and work on it throughout a longer period before publishing, the score is typically higher than if you open a new url, type up the hub, and publish it all in one day/sitting. This is why you could have seen the newly published hub with a score of 63, versus 50ish or lower.

    I've seen unpublished hubs drip down after a while. I know, because I went and claimed a bunch of URL's after I published my first few capstone hubs and figured I better just grab the whole set.

    It would seem that they have a slight rise, but after a while they can dip.

    It's no biggie. You initial HubScore has no bearing on 1) what HubScore that it will eventually rise to (keeping in mind that it'll fluctuate according to traffic anyway) and 2) the quality of your content.
