    What does the number next to my profile picture mean?

    It's your score in Hubpages.  It's based on your activities here - writing and publishing hubs, visiting and commenting on others' hubs, helping others, and various other things.  The highest score is 100 and there are only a few holding that score among MANY hubbers.  Just keep active and see what happens.

    it is your hubscore and it rates you based on an algorithm . You can find out  more  about it on http://hubpages.com/faq/#hubscore

    That's your author rating.  I don't know just how it's calculated, but in general the more and the better you write, and the better received it is, the higher it will be.  It will shift around a bit all the time normally, and in my experience tends to be highest early in the day, and then falls toward evening.  (We are talking just a few points, perhaps two or three.)

    It is your over all author score. HubPages ranks its writers on a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being the best (this is also done on each individual hub you write). This link may help you understand more about how things are done around here, you should check it out!
    Hope this helps!
    Welcome to HubPages~

    Mine is 70. I have written 78 Hubs. I wonder what will happen if I write 300. LOL!

      Funny! I, don't care about a score. I, know I can write and that is what matters to me.

    It looks like you've gotten a bunch of great answers to your question. I just want to add, from my own experience, while it's nice to aim for a high hubscore (and we all obviously do it) you definitely shouldn't fixate on your score too much. If you do, it can make you crazy, and it can take a lot of the joy out of what is otherwise an awesome place to write and express yourself. Enjoy the process and your score will go up naturally!

    The number shown besides your profile score is called hubber score. The score indicates the performance as an author and a contributor to the community. With quality hubs and contribution to hubpages, your hubber score will rise. The profiles with 75 score and above get preference to get more traffic. The hubber score may fluctuate, but there is no reason to be anxious. Ok, best of luck.

    I was wondering about the number for a good few hours there, thanks for letting us know!

    I'd be interested to hear more about how the number is calculated and whether the number has any impact on article visibility etc.

    Okay, once more old time's sake.

    The Hubber score is calculated by starting with your shoe size and multiplying that number by the last three digits of your social insurance number. That total is divided by the circumference, in millimetres, of a randomly selected rutabaga.

    The final step is tricky, it involves either adding or subtracting, nobody knows which, of the value “X.” The actual value of “X” is unknown, even to HubPages.

      I thought it denoted our "hubber age"?

      Just like there are cat years and dog years, I thought that the number was saying that I was 98 "hubber years" old?

      It certainly feels that way most days!
