Can anyone tell me more about this. I'm new, and I do mean BRAND new to this site.
Hub and hubber score have nothing to do with getting traffic or money.
Ignoring them and writing hubs will make them go up on their own, without any real work from you.
May I also suggest placing your new hub in the Extreme Hub Makeover forum.
Hub scores fluctuate constantly based on views, comments and participation, but there is also a certain element of mystery regarding the hub score. Sometimes it has to do with how many other articles out there that are similar to yours. Your main hubscore also has to do with how active you are in the community.
So basically it's a huge amalgam of everything you do on HubPages. Hope I helped!
The foundation for a high hub score is original hub content,good facts and useful information created on a regular basis.
Being social on HubPages also helps - answers, questions, forums,comments and so on will help your score climb.
There is a factor X however. Hub score goes up slow, comes down fast! Why? There's no scientific answer.
Welcome to the site! As others have said here, don't sweat your score too much, especially at first. Just concentrate on writing good-quality hubs, and on being active in the community by reading and commenting on hubs, participating in the Answers section and joining dus Haskins on the forum.
Your score will rise quickly with a bit of activity (it's helpful to your traffic to get it above 70-80). After that, it will grow more slowly. But, as has also been said, the scores seem to operate with an unknown logic. You can have a really high score, and publish a few new hubs (which you'd think would make the score increase or at least meintain, right?), and the score will drop! So don't fret or lose sleep.
Best of luck with your writing, and welcome aboard!
I'm relatively new to Hubpages (3 Months) and my score is all over the place. One day it will be 84, the next it's 90, the next it's 83, then the next it's 89. It took me well over a month and 10+ hubs before my score got consistently over 80. If you are continuously contributing by adding good quality hubs on a regular basis, participating in the community (through Q&A, forums, comments), then you're score will start to gradually go up.

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...

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...
