I took out some new credit cards based on this site's advice but my score went down. Why?
Your site advised me to take out some credit cards. I did and have been paying them off early, so my available credit is high and utilization is low. But my overall credit score keeps dropping. Why is that? It's frustrating and does not make sense. Are your site's recommendations wrong?
