Is there any actual SEO value in high Hub Scores?
If so, what value do they provide? Or is Hub Score just an internal HubPages metric, and nothing more?
It is not directly linked to SEO but the more people that hit your page and the more comments you get the higher your hubscore is - coincedentally the more hits you get helps you go up the rankings.
I think that hub may help...
HubScores mean nothing outside of HubPages, however there is a chance that people who are able to produce good HubScores also have better SEO and writing skills.
"HubScores mean nothing outside of HubPages"
although this is true, is it not correct that higher hubscores lead to more internal links from hubpages.com itself?
ie the more pages the hub shows up on these /hot/ pages etc, the more internal links the hub gets credited for in Google, and hence the stronger it gets in relation to other hubs on the theme with lower scores?
hence I believe that in general, over time, higher scored hubs would probably perform better in Google than the same hub with a lower score, and hence less internal links?
haven't tested this, it would just seem to make sense.

I have read what HP has posted about HubScores plus quite a few forum postings on the subject over the last several years. If the scores are HP's way of judging quality, then I want to see a higher score if I can get one for a Hub that has potential. But I also throw together some Hubs that don't...
