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.

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? ...

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...

Who thinks we should ask to reinstate a page dedicated to locating hubbers by hubber score. Beginning with 100-0.We once had such a page here that made the hubber score much more relevant, and we could at least get a...

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...

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...
