Has it got to do anything with SEO ?
Is it possible with Hubpages ? If yes how ?
There is a short URL on each of your published pages in the statistics section near the edit button. It is in the hub metrics area.
BTW If you look on the drop down menu below you user name you will find access to FAQ's frequently asked questions and also the Learning Center. This might help with some of the questions you have about HubPages.
URL shortening is not specific to HubPages nor is a strong SEO tactic tool.
URL shortening is traditional used to do exactly what it sounds like.
Take long,unwieldy urls and turn them into something smaller for either ease of communication, masking of the end page or posting limitations.
Someone who frequently shares a product url like:
might prefer to use laptops.com/ibook
(if they own the server)
or someone trying to tweet an affiliate link for the latest make money online scam might not want to waste all these characters:
Try this amazing new service at wvvw.guaranteedgetrichnow.net/paymeupfront/only50/do-it-now sign up now
and would use twitters built in url shortener or a common third party shortener.
With your own hubpages - there is a short url option and wordpress has a built in short url option now also but you are using intelligent url decisions when creating posts/hubs - in most cases the full url should be just fine (unless you have space restrictions or are trying to be tricky )
to be specific to the SEO aspect of your question - a shortened URL is a redirected URL and how one sets up that redirect does have an effect on what is considered best SEO practice

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...

There is a lot of bad SEO (search engine optimization) advice out there, and the use of automated services that procure backlinks to your Hubs is one particularly egregious example. Using services to get backlinks can...

I was invited to be moved on new subdomain in response to my interest in the blog. I have no clue what will happen. Whatever, how are you people choosing your new name?
