Hi, Can you tell me what the scores on my profile photo and account page mean?
I am slowly but surely learning my way around HP. So far, it has been very promising. Your article for the newbies was very helpful. Writing is also a hobby of mine and if I can make money from my hobby, then why not? LOL I look forward to your response to my question. Thanks again!
Following is the answer given by hubpages team in faq section.
"We use this to determine the quality of individual Hubs, much like Google ranks popular pages. Many factors contribute to our rating scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being our top score."
"HubScore takes into account many factors and will change over time as data about its performance continues to stream in. It will also fluctuate quite a bit, seemingly at random, and that is nothing to worry about. The most important HubScore components that you should be concerned with include:
*Amount of traffic - including percentage from reputable sources other than HubPages
*The reputation of the Hubber - your Hubber Score and contribution to the community
*The response of readers to your hub - including comments, thumbs up, etc.
*The uniqueness of content - copying content already available on the web will be penalized
We reserve the right to change the factors used to assess a Hub’s HubScore as we continue to determine those that measure a great Hub. The bottom line is if you write original, useful content, your HubScores will reflect the quality and work you've put into them."
the hubscores are an internal way of ranking hubs. having high scores can greatly increase traffic because hubpages gives more exposure to sites they believe are the best quality and most relevant.
increase your score...increase your traffic...make more money!

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.

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

If my profile photo was a photo of a beautiful woman, would I get more traffic?I will admit easily that I am a guy, but I'm curious if such a photo would increase my traffic.
