Will it help my overall score if I delete or un-publish low score hubs? I have over 77 Hubs and my traffic is between 150-200 hits a day over all my Hubs, and yet my score never goes above a 94. I saw a Hub that suggested removing poorly performing Hubs as a way to increase our scores; is this true?
I agree with psycheskinner and MelissaBarrett: if a Hub never gets traffic and is not seasonal (i.e. one designed for searchers around certain holidays or dates), then it could be a candidate for unpublishing. Also Hubs that have a very low average time on page per user, like 1-5 seconds, would also be good candidates to unpublish.
I'd check out this Learning Center entry for more information:

I tend to leave a hub up unless I think it is 'broken' in some way (too spammy etc). Some of them suddenly take off years later.

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?

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be....
