if the hub score is below 40 all the outbound link of the hub is no follow otherwise a hub score is not something to really worry about though a 700 word+ standard hub always has a score around 65, no matter it gets reader or not.
Once you author score and hub score is big enough to give you do follow link, it will not matter. How many followers will not matter. What will matter and how much traffic coming and if you either making money or writing creatively (I hope to do it both), everything else seems to be meaningless. But I guess it looks good and make us feel good a bit.
I wanted more than your opinion on what is conventional wisdom.
The point here is what is the value of a hub score. What does it mean to people looking at a hub and seeing score. It certainly has nothing to do with the quality of the writing, or at best little to do with it.
Meaning that it is perfectly fine for you to have started this thread. It was also appropriate of me to link to the related discussion.
EDIT: I wrote my post before you edited your post by adding: "The point here is what is the value of a hub score. What does it mean to people looking at a hub and seeing score. It certainly has nothing to do with the quality of the writing, or at best little to do with it."
So when I said "Of course", I did not comment on that part of your previous post.
Unless you are looking for a DoFollow link, or manage to get your hubscore or authorscore up to 100 so that your hubs (or you) are featured, I see absolutely no value in the scores at all. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
I meant PR in the sense that I believe that hubpages factors in things that hubbers participate in to factor in the hubbers reputation. Reputation is what hubpages mentions, so I guessed that it meants participation of some kinds.
Maybe. But hubs of quality - defined as hubs with the ability to generate sustainable traffic - tend to have higher Hub Scores than dormant hubs with little or no traffic. Thus, Hub Scores are never completely irrelevant.
I agree. It is only really valid within the HubPages community and gives a guide status or value to the Hub. It doesn't imply the hub is necessarily well written, will draw high traffic or earn much money but in general a Hub that's been around a few months with a score of 50 is of less value than one that has a score above say 80.
Hubber score works in the same way. It is a guide to 'quality' within the Hubpages community but has no real meaning outside of Hubpages. Hence high earning Hubs sometimes have low scores as do really brilliantly written masterpieces!
It is my emotions only or is it real? When my Hub score slips under 90, I feel the volume from the Internet slips too? Any noted correlation to scores over 90 and traffic generation? I know this discussion has concentrated upon the lower Hub scores but what about pushing beyond the upper 80's?
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...
I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...
For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...
My Hub "People Almost Met: Lily at the Pool" recently had a hub score of 100 and stayed at the level for about two weeks. Now it is in the 60's. It has lots of comments and about average views (for my...
Prompted by a comment in another thread, I thought it would be useful to perhaps slightly change the way that we commonly think about changes to hub scores, hubber scores and the like. Rather than see them as a...
