    Does a hubscore really reflect how good a blog or writer is?

    With some subjects opinions vary; like religion, politics.  And the less scrupilous or less brainy tend, I believe, to rate the opinion rather than the planning, content and so on.
    While other subjects are universal, or have the ability to be if written in certain ways like Love for Instance.

    I most certainly hope not or I am doomed…
    Seriously though, there are algorithms that try to take an average of your hub visits, feedback, number of postings and social interaction to which pop out a magical score.  Most of the regulars in here maintain scores of low to high nineties.

    No, somewhere someone's opinion is being figured into these scores.  I'm sure that there are lots of mathematical formulas involved, and they probably involve things about Google that you and I will probably never, ever know. 

    Don't worry about a hub's score, or your hubber score. Just keep trucking along and doing what you are doing.

    I think not......some of those writings which have touched me the most, or those I have most related to, have a lower score than my own,  which, I often think is too generous.

    Like a high school test.......you might have scored better on another day.

    Not sure.

    I have a hub score of 85 and I don't know how it got there nor what it means but it must be nice to have like 90 and above below one's avatar.

    Anyways, what I'm watching closely for are some AdSense cents coming from HP and they are not happening, yet. big_smile

    Getting paid for your writing by living, breathing, publishers is a mark of how good a writer anyone is.  Being published by online publishers is not worth anything on a CV, nor is hub score.

    No! The hubscore doesn't really reflect how good a blog or writer is. It all depends on the traffic. Someone can write a bad blog and if many people read it, it calculates into a good score. On the other hand, if someone write a good blog and no one reads it, then the score is lower. So in order to determine the value of a blog, many factors must be considered.
