To the reader? Well not much actually.
It's unlikely the reader will pay attention to a blog's hubscore, let alone know that it's rated out of 10.
Unless of course that person is a common Hubpages reader, in which case that person is probably also a hubber, and can use the hub as a source to sort of gauge the quality of writing needed for a certain score.
I disagree with the prior commenter, the casual reader is interested. I am very new to hub pages, am not a writer, but thought to ask what the score would happen to be. Is it a "most popular"? Is it a critique of the author, or the author's piece? If it doesn't relate to the reader, why make it visible for all to see?

I'm confused, before I started updating my hubs my hubber score was 83. I edited a couple, and it went up to 84. I noticed today, it is 82. I thought maybe the hub scores on the edited articles decreased - but after comparing my notes they all increased in hub score. The "List of Rare...

Evidently, hubber score has absolutely nothing to do with earnings. Yesterday was my biggest earning day EVER on HP, yet my hubber score is the lowest it's been in quite a while. That's okay - I'll take high earnings over a high score any ole day!
