Is it worth the high score hubpages gives an article if no one is reading your articles? This is my problem and I'm trying to understand how it all works. I notice some hubs receive a lot of readership and comments, but aren't necessarily high scoring. It's a conundrum.
Traffic should be your priority. My hubs on this account have fairly high scores but on my other account, most of my hubs are in the 70+ range yet they are performing better traffic-wise. I suggest you focus on increasing traffic to your hubs and don't bother with aiming for high hub score.
I think both are important but serve different purposes. Scores help raise your author score which to me shows you are credible. If you are working here mostly to make money focus on traffic as your top priority.
A higher author score doesn't make one more credible in the same way a high hub score doesn't make a hub necessarily better.
I beg to differ.Scores reflect how closely you follow the HP prescribed format and word count of a hub.Credibility is a whole other subject.
The primary reason I've remained a member of HP is to hub hop and I've read many hubs written by very high author score hubbers that reflected very poorly on their credibility.
HubScores mean NOTHING outside of your opinion of them, as you are the only human who sees them.
Probably has some influence on placement on topic pages.
I think you are right about that. High hubscore might not affect search engine traffic and the like, but I think it means more traffic from hubpages itself.
Thanks for the input. It helps. I'm not real savvy about getting traffic to my hubs so maybe that's what I need to work on.

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...

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?

What. Now What? is what I want to say. Sorry. I have transferred to HubPages from Squidoo. All my Hubs have received all the same visits pattern as they did on Squidoo. I did get an added boost of $ for being in Tier...
