As shown on this page, http://hubpages.com/help/hub_hop_table#informational, there are scores between 2 and *. How does one view said score of their own hub?
I've been looking for a couple of days (I am new to hubpages), and have not been able to find a place to view that metric.
We don't show Hubbers their score, but if you aim for an 8+ Hub on the scale, your Hub should be Featured. You can find more information in our Learning Center. Welcome to HubPages!
Hey there Quiterandom Welcome to HubPages!
If you take a look around the community and visit some hubbers profiles, you might see and accolade on some of a megaphone type thing and a number. This means they have featured hubs. I suggest taking a look at some of these hubbers' hubs. Chances are, if they have several featured hubs, they are doing something right It will give you an idea of what to shoot for with your own writing, as well as the examples from the learning center. (I'm the type that needs to see examples not just read about standards and expectations)
And feel free to ask any Q's you have here in the forums. Hubbers are always happy to help
I've only written three, and after looking more closely at what the deal was here, figured out why one of them wasn't featured. It's written well, but does not lend itself well to pictures, multiple sections, polls, and is semi-anti-commercialism, does not lend itself well to advertisements, so I understand completely why it was not featured. The other two did fine, and I am now contemplating my next subject.
Ah, I see, I kept seeing people mention this score. It might be helpful to let people know that the "Informational writing scale" score is an internal metric that cannot be viewed by Hub writers!
Shooting for a quantifiable score when no quantifiable score is made available concerning a piece of writing seems a tad counter intuitive.
But, I get it. Attempt to follow the guidelines, and you'll probably have a featured hub.
Again, thanks for the reply.
Well the best way of achieving the featured status is to keep your article interesting, to avoid grammatical errors and to write it or phrase it such that it is easily understandable

I see this message when my Hub is rejected: "Heads up! It looks like your Hub is not cleared for publication because it did not pass the Quality Assessment Process. No need to fret; every new Hubber goes through Boot Camp, and all you need to do is improve the Hub so that it meets our quality...

It isn't just mine, but I'm hearing others suddenly have a list with white circles on many hubs. Many were recently approved by QAP. Some have hub scores in the 90s or upper 80s. What is the reason for this and what are we expected to do about it? How do we get these hubs featured again?Merry...

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...

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!

I feel concerned that the reason google may prefer ehow as opposed to hubpages, is because there is an abundance of poetry and short stories. I am not by any means saying that those who publish the short stories and poetry are not good, but they are not usually searchable or high market. I...

Presently one of my articles (http://mistu4u.hubpages.com/hub/Tips-an … like-a-pro) has been featured in Hubpages. But I want to improve it still. So my question is after been featured, can the score change if I reedit it? Also, does "views" depend on the scores received by a hub?...
