If my author score gets higher, will the scores of my hubs get higher? Also, if my author score is higher at the time that I start my hub will that affect the scores of my hubs?
No and no.
Author score is based on the scores of your hubs as well as your interactions with the site. Hub scores are based on traffic and content etc.
I wouldn't worry about your scores - they don't influence your traffic or earnings, but are instead an indication of them. I can't remember the last time I even noticed a hub's score.
Thanks, that clarified a few things for me. I'm off now to write another hub!
Don't worry about score. Just write good, quality hubs that are neat, proofread, and clearly written by someone who cares about or is truly knowledgeable about the subject. If you focus on that, your scores will take care of themselves.
I have to agree with all the answers you have gotten so far. I have only be on Hubpages for 9 months and it took at least 4 months for me to figure out how valuable this community was. Ever since I have been writing on a regular basis and my author score fluctuates between 91 and 97. I try not to focus on it but I know when it starts sliding that I have not been to the forums lately. I think it also helps to participate in some of the contests when you can, they can be good for traffic, your author score and they can be a lot of fun.
I appreciate the answers too. I have only been here a few weeks but my profile score dropped a few points and I about had a cow! Good to keep focus on writing! (I had gotten lazy about using "suggested links" though so I went back and did some.)
I've been here almost three months now, but I just discovered the Forums and how helpful everyone is. I'm glad I did as I'm learning a lot from the comments, like yours. Thanks
I'll try to give that a shot sometime in the future. Hopefully sooner rather than later!
I don't think so..Your hub score is based on the content value and your hubibity.But getting good score also make feel good
I've only been on three weeks and I can tell you my author score is much highher than any of my hub scores. if my hub scores were that high, I'd be thrilled! But I don't think one has anything to do with the other.
Mine jumps up and down within a range of 10 all the time. I try not to worry about it. One weird thing I noticed was I got 3 new followers overnight and my hubscore dropped 5 points. I thought that was kind of weird. But I'll take the new followers anyday.

My title should have read another hub author score question . I have noticed this hubber that puts up a lot of hubs, however, they are all very short, most less than 100-200 words. The type of hub that can be put up in less than 15 mintues. And, the majority of their individual hub scores...

Just curious why my author score is dropping....My first few hubs were basically promotional and shorter and I had a score of 79. It has dropped to 67 as of today after a new hub I put up that was not promotional and has gotten more traffic than my other hubs. I have deleted a couple of hubs. Will...

From past experience and from most of what I have read it is uncommon for hub scores to go up on a weekend. Please let me know your experience with this.

My Author Score has dropped from 91 to 84 over the last month or so. It's been dropping particularly fast in the last couple of weeks, despite recently publishing 2 popular hubs, daily hubhopping and commenting etc. Any suggestions for why this might be happening and what I can do about it?...

I posted a number of hubs the other day, which all started out at a relatively low score as they usually do--somewhere in the 40s and 50s. I saw my score drop a point or two, which I would normally see. Since then, the hubs have been steadily rising into the 60s, 70s, and 80s, which is also normal...

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to go down or what is the problem?
