My hub score has been consistently between 85 and 95, but two days ago it suddenly dropped down to 78 and 76, and I am doing nothing different and my traffic remains the same as does my over all hub averages. I am concerned though since at below 75 I understand the links on my hubs become no follow. I have removed two poetry hubs that were 60 or below, maybe that will help. What I also do not understand at this point if these are truly sub-domains in our name now why any would become no follow without our permission.
I just noticed that today myself. My profile Hubber score usually sits around 93 and never drops below 90. It is now at 88, which bothers me somewhat. Also haven't been writing any hubs over the last few days, because we have lost power due to Hurricane Irene. Thank god for starbucks internet hotspot! Good luck and keep me informed of other possibilities that could be affecting our scores.
"Multiman is now following..."
I saw a bunch of these in a row, so that is my guess.
That is most the problem all right. HP is not intended to become a popularity contest to see who can get the most followers and will penalize those who play that game with a lower hubber score.
Sit tight, don't follow anyone else for a while and the score will probably build back up.
Absolutely. Only follow people who you are genuinely interested in.

Not complaining but I don't understand hub. In an attempt to get involved, I started following a lot of Hubbers. Many of them followed me back and I am seeing a dramatic increase in viewing traffic for my hubs. I guess Hub didn't like this since they took my score from 89 to currently 78 and...

Is it true that you can follow too many hubbers, causing your hub score to lower?I have been wondering if following a large number of hubbers can cause your hub score to get 'dinged'. I recently had a relatively new hubber (who shall remain nameless) tell me that following too many hubbers will...

How do you react to hubs with comments disabled?As a hub reader, how important is it to you to be able to comment? Does it frustrate you when you are not allowed to comment on a hub? Will you still vote on that hub? Will you follow an author who disables comments? I wonder if disabling comments...

Hi Everyone! I have just joined Hub Pages 10 days ago and I have one hub published. My question to all of those experienced hubbers that is my hub score good enough to get an AdSense account? I have a 61 score and my hub page score is 74 right now. How many more hubs I should have before...

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total hub count is now way down, so that instead of 10 more hubs to 100, I've now got to...
