I joined HubPages 8 days ago (today is Dec. 05, 2011). I had a score of 78. The hubs I post score from 68 to 83.
I was reading that most hubs start at 40 or so. A hubber's over all score ranks around the same count.
Why is mine so high? I hope to know so i can help it go higher.
Scores are fairly meaningless. As long as your personal score is over 75 and your hub scores are over 40, all outgoing links are dofollow - basically the scores are there to keep the spammers from getting tons of quality backlinks.
It's based on things like quality content, site interaction etc.
But I have an account with one hub on it that's over a year old (and has not been used in over a year) that still has a personal score of 80 something.)
It doesn't take a decent Hub (or the new Hubber who wrote it) very long to go into the 70's or 80's. Hubs (and new Hubbers) start out low, and within days tend to go up in score. With a little more time on the site, Hubs will settle wherever they're going to settle (which may be a few, or more, points higher or lower, depending on a mix of things). The Hubber who generally writes decent Hubs and puts in the kind of effort suggested in HP's "Help" section usually doesn't take long to get an author score in the 90's. What happens (to either each Hub's score or to the author score) goes from there and depends on a lot of things the Hubber does as he builds up time on the site.

My title should have read another hub author score question . I have noticed this hubber that puts up a lot of hubs, however, they are all very short, most less than 100-200 words. The type of hub that can be put...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...

If my author score gets higher, will the scores of my hubs get higher? Also, if my author score is higher at the time that I start my hub will that affect the scores of my hubs?

Why is my new hub scored so low? I started a new monicker to write on a very different subject, but my first hub is only rated a 74 and it's been up for 2 weeks. I'm used to 80s and 90s scores. Please provide feedback,...

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....
