My profile score is usually pretty steady. I get on hubpages during the weekend. It drops 4 or 5 points when I get on here during the weekday. I don't do it very often (maybe once a month). Why does my score drop with the extra activity?
A very good question. Inactivity has raised my score as well, lol. If I hit the forums, answer questions, comment on hubs and hub hop, my score will generally go down. I can take a few days off from that activity and my score will be up a few points.
My theory on that is that it's HubPages passive-aggressive way of making us go away by rewarding us with score points when we do. I tend to suspect that one factor is a matter of activity's shaking things up scores-wise.
If you have a week or period where you are writing many hubs, your average gets pulled down, since they all start with around a 50 score, give or take. Then as they climb up and are read, your score goes up.
That does make sense, as explained, Jean. Thanks. I had not taken that into consideration.
I don't write many hubs in a month much less a week. I don't have to write any hubs for my score to go down. It just goes down when I increase my activity above normal for the week.
I did nothing but post in the forum here this morning and low and behold, my score has dropped two points, lol. No hub publishing, not any extra activity other that a couple of forum posts and maybe I responded to a comment on one of my hubs. Go figure.
I started two hubs yesterday and ultimately decided that I can't write them, so I deleted them. I am pretty sure that it drug my score from a 97 (all time high!) to a 94 just because they have a low score even though I deleted them and I'm just waiting for them to disappear. I wish that didn't change your score, but I've learned a lesson. Write the hub in another program and transfer it!

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

Does your profile score really matter?

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?
