I know that there are a lot of things to discover here in HubPages and I think I can learn more by getting involved in a forum where experts and experienced hubbers can help me.
For these past days, one of the things that caught my attention was my hubber score and hubscore. I got low scores(maybe because I only got 1 featured hub this time), and I'm a little bit worried now. Well, I just want to know if hubscores and hubber score can affect your rank in google? What do these scores mean? Do hubscores signify the quality of a hub? Thank you so much in advance!
That said, HubScores reflect a lot of important metrics that Google does see to be important, so there may be a correlation between one's HubScores and Hubber Score and one's reputation with Google.
No. They are like test results. They tell you what is happening but they don't effect it.
Google don't care about your HP scores (and nor should you). The only tiny thing you might want to consider is that you should aim to keep your author score about 75 as otherwise HP will mark any outgoing links on your hubs as 'no follow' which is not desirable, otherwise don't worry about it.
Thanks for the info. I didn't know google can't see the scores. I'm happy that scores won't affect my rank in google search. By the way, I just have one more question: does having a high hubscore mean high quality hub?
If that would be the case, then I should never be worried about hubscores from now on. Thank you so much.
Welcome to Hubpages jemuelO! Happy hubbing;-) Don´t worry about hubscore, just write engaging quality hubs.

To those with decreased hubscores as a result of the new hubscore updates, has this eventmotivated or demotivated you from writing hubs? Has the new hubscore updates making you reconsider staying at HubPages or simply giving up and moving on?

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

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 fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

Hubber scores do not reflect anything but some weird algorithm that is not in sync with anything. My score just went sixteen points down. My views are up and I am featured way more that 140 times.But what I noticed was Billybuc. He is an 88. What? He is the highest ranking site at Hub pages. This...

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 efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...
