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.

Why is the score getting lower everyday? The highest number I had was 83, haven't seen that number in awhile. Thanks

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...

I just published my 120th hub today, and finally my hubscore went up to 96! I've watched it gradually creep on up from the low 80s (when a bunch of Squidoo lenses transferred over, maybe even high 70s). I...
