There are probably many reasons. One is that if you have a high Hubber score, potential readers are more likely to take you seriously, and to read one of your hubs on a topic that they're only marginally interested in. In other words, a high Hubber score generates traffic. Of course, there's always an element of American competitiveness.
Larry's right. I also think that it is helpful for increasing traffic because when you get a 100 hubscore, you move to the top of the "Hubbers" list. (You can find this list above, next to "Answers".)
Because we all strive to be the best and a score of 100 gives a little bit of that feeling.
For many 100 is just a number. Is traffic from hubpages really to be taken into consideration after hitting 100 ?

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

I used to be totally addicted to HP, couldn't wait to log on everyday to see what was happening, who and what was popping in the forums, what interesting hub made HOTD, and of course, how my stats and earnings were progressing. I looked forward to the rush I got from clicking "publish"...
