    As shown on this page,, 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!  smile

      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 wink 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 smile

        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. smile

          Actually, you don't have to have photos on a Hub for it to be featured.  About 38% of Robin's Hubs have no photos.

    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
