    Your hub score starts at zero and slowly rises. This is a method the site uses to weed out the spammers. As time goes on you will see your score continue to rise, so long as you write good hubs and interact regularly with the community.

    I hope this helps. smile

    From what I've seen on HP the formula for figuring out scores (whether for hubs or your profile) seems to be a mystery, or at least a well guarded secret.  What I have noticed in my own writing is that the more interest a hub sparks is improtant, but then do those readers stay and read the whole article?  do they submit comments on it?  Do they vote on it (up, down, useful,etc)?  Your involvement in other activities on HP is also important, because as you answer questions, ask questions, contribute to forums, and actually follow the people you "follow" more people will do the same for you.

    I have noticed that if you have misspellings and several grammar mistakes, it will bring your hub score down. Also, if you look at the link area in edit, you will see a space that gives you a potential hub score. That is the highest you will be able to get on that hub.
    I am still learning but hope this helps.
