Why inquiries can change credit scores

Dear Experian,

Why does my score change with inquiries?


Paying off debts is just the first step in restoring your credit scores

Dear Experian,

I just paid the last bill off my credit in May of this year. If there is nothing else for me to pay how does my credit score increase?
