I want to know whether the hub score affect the traffic to our hubs!
The good news (maybe bad news for some) is that the hubscore will not affect your traffic.. As I am sure many other hubbers will tell you, we have high scorring hubs with no traffic and low scoring hubs with lots of traffic...
However aim for a "stella" hub and "tick" all the boxes at the top right when you do your hubs....
Content is KIng! Write something great and the people will flock to it!
I too am new here and this one of those things that I have been wondering about. if scores mean nothing I am beginning to wonder why it is there??
The score is there to drive good behavior according to Hubpages. They have their own view as to what a good hub should look like which is why they always say you should aim for a "stellar" hub - so tick all of the boxes top right when you write your hub, include polls, maps, photos, videos etc..
They are not far from wrong to be honest, the more you have on your page the more chance that the reader will stay that little longer and will interact more which will likely help google to decide that it is worth sending more visitors...
That being said as I have already said and many others have also said; we have hubs that have high scores and little traffic and hubs with low scores with plenty of traffic...
You will also see that scores will jump around a fair bit - I have seen hubs that have changed up or down by 12 points with no change to the hub - I have also had hubs drop 10 points by adding extra text capsules and photos. There is no obvious reason sometimes for the changes in the scores!
Just write a good hub - don't worry overly about the scores - if Google sends traffic you have done something right! Traffic is the real measure of your page..
Yeah, I wouldn't worry about this either. If you produce great content, the traffic will come. Your hubscore just won't matter.
Traffic for your hubs come only from the quality content with appropriate keyword usage, I don't think that your hub score affect your traffic, if you have a good traffic hub score will thereby increase and make you more respectable among your followers.

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of priority about what to do next.Up until now I've been focused on the traffic data and...

My Hub "People Almost Met: Lily at the Pool" recently had a hub score of 100 and stayed at the level for about two weeks. Now it is in the 60's. It has lots of comments and about average views (for my hubs). Anyone know what I can do about this?

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...

To satisfy my own curiosity, I would like to know why one of the hubs that was transferred from Squidoo, has such a low "hub score". I have gone over it with a fine-toothed comb, and cannot figure it out. It currently has 11,945 words, many photos, and is - in my opinion - informative....

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What should I read into that? Most people say that one should not concern...
