The other night I was putting on a new hub. For some reason my computer or internet tossed me off and I could not get back on untill the next day. (I am suspecting Windows Explorer?) So, the next day, I got back on and clicked to edit the saved draft. I finished the article and did the photos and such. I published it. Right away the score was below 50, on a long and very marketable hub. It has had 8 clicks and has dropped even further. It is at 44 or 46 now. The statistics chart does not show a problem.
So, why is it so low to start out, and why is it dropping? Also, how can I fix this? Please help, because I really need to know. I would love to fix this and get it up where it should be. Please, I am begging.
I would guess Hubpages are playing with their ranking system and it is going to take longer to rank internally than it used to.
I wouldn't worry about it - normal service will eventually be resumed.
Hey Glenn, it happens from time to time. I wouldn't worry too much about it. I've had hubs published and watched them dip down for a couple of days and then rise.

Other Seasoned hubbers- please help me understand a hub score of 61I tell myself not to care as long as I continue to be profitable, but I swear I am at my end with the lack of communication on how hubs are rated. I have read the posts about it, and my article meets the requirements. My article...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

Needing some constructive criticism regarding my second ever hub. I crafted what I thought to be a clever and informative article that would help the reader renegotiate a lower wireless bill with their provider. But after one day its been down-voted 5 times. Wondering if anyone has any advice to...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...
