    What is the relevance of the number that is at the lower right corner of ones profile photo? I notice it changes here now and then. I am unable to find any information on its meaning, and it's bugging me.

      Sharlee, the Learning Center is a great place to get answers.  Here's a link to the section on hub scores and hubber scores (the score you are asking about):  http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/hubs … bber-score .

      Thank you to all for helping me out with this, I appreciate it. I visited the recommended link, and I think I understand the concept. Although not sure I agree with it???

    Hi Sharlee,

    This number has little relevance unless it drops below 84 (effects traffic). It is a grade that is very difficult to determine or improve. Mine goes from 99 to 82 and back regularly.

    It's called your hubber score. We don't know the formula on which HP bases the score exactly.

    This is your Hubber score and it appears to be loosely based on your average Hub score, the extent you answer questions and ask them, your comments made and received and the engagement factors of your Hubs etc. No-one seems to know how all of these factors are rated. Mine has gone from 75 when I joined to 94 and is currently 88 (I think).

    This just proves the point that Hubber Score (which is what that number is) is really, really unimportant.

    People from outside HubPages don't know what it means and don't care!

      Paul E Just commented on the New Blog Post thread that if your HubberScore is below 70 you need HubPro help.  Apparently they think it is important; why I still don't know.  Maybe it was a typo.

    I still see the HubPro post.  Where is his post at.  It is too bad there isn't a post so we can ask questions such as the more active we are, out hubberscore still drops.

      Right now it is the 2nd discussion from the top, "New Blog Post."  In it, Paul E. has a lengthy reply to people's concerns.

    Much of your score seems decided by moderators at hubpages and not any formula. It should not vary if you are Scoring highly a new hub should not drop you by ten percent but it does. I think it's an ego boost to keep people writing I also noticed it drops when you don't write enough.

    I don't agree with it in any case I saw people with even 100 for the first time where do you go from there but down? What are the qualifications of the people making these judgements?

    Hubpages is all about generating how to articles does anyone recommend another site that supports fiction writing and is not all about making money which if people looked at the hours of labor to make money here vs the income you could do better at being a greeter at Walmart.

    Now they can't even keep stats operational ...

    I maintained 100 for the longest time, now although I have been more active, my score has dropped to 89 though two days ago it was 92. It seems like the main point of the score must be to stress us out.

    Hub score. Mine fluctuates from time to time. It seems it goes down when I have less time to use for participation on HubPages. Ooops! Sorry, I'm a busy gal. It also changes when I've posted new hubs. I don't see it moving much when I've had free time to spend in the forums and other social areas of the site. I don't disregard it. I use it as a prompt to make sure I'm present in the here and now when on HP. Link:  http://hubpages.com/faq/#how-to-improve-hubscore. There's probably also a delay in the actual change and the activity that prompted the change.
