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.

Do you thing people on HP with high scores are better writers or better net workers?

Well, yall don't hear from me much anymore, as I'm one of the oldsters here. But some of you know I used to have hubber scores of 95-100. When the big boom happened, it dropped to the early 80s. In addition, my individual hub scores dropped, but not earnings.What is really weird...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

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...

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be. Today, I'd like to talk about the subsequent update to Hubber Score — the score...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...
