Are you more likely to read hubs with a higher hub score?
Does a hub score matter to you when you decide which ones to read?
I am more likely to read hubs that are interesting to me.
Nope. If the hub is brand new it might not have a high score. How do I know when I see a hub from my stream if it's new or old?
For this reason - an individual hub's score is irrelevant to me as a reader.
It depends. I usually begin reading if the subject interests me. I keep reading if it holds my attention. I do like to hub hop and when I do, I try to spend time reading the lower scored hubs, to support other new Hubbers:)
I read hubs with catchy titles.. They don't have to be fancy but should be on a topic I'm interested in.
I agree with davenmidtown. I hardly even look at the hub score. I'll look at the hubber's score before the hub score but even then everything is so unpredictable. I like hubs that interest me. That's it.
Not at all. I decide based on the title. When I do read it, I notice the Hubber's score before the Hub's score, but both are irrelevant if I find the hub interesting.
Hi, I'm too new to really understand, and, therefore, to care about, hub scores. Like davenmidtown and others who answered this question, I tend to read hubs that interest me overall. If I see a hub written by a newbie hubber, I then try to make cogent comments and give a thumbs up or other feedback whenever I can.
daleamy summed it up best in the comment above mine!
Nope. Will read as long as there's a title of interest to me.
No, I read the ones that show up on my feed that seem interesting. And, sometimes I search for a topic and read those hubs.
No. I don't pay attention to hub scores. I just read what I want to read. I don't feel a score is an overly big deal. Thats just me.
I habitually read the latest hubs regardless of their score.
Not necessarily- sometimes hubs start off with lower scores, so it may not be a determining factor of their content. I have found that, generally, hubbers with higher scores have more interesting hubs that people are reading though.
At the beginning I was very upset about this rating system and very stressed out about it now I simply don't care. I only read what interests me and sometimes the article is quite interesting however the rating low... never understood and never will understand this system.
I totally look at the title. If that catches my eye and interest, that's all that matters. I worried about hub scores at first as well. But I soon decided that didn't necessarily reflect the quality of the hub, so I ignore the score now.
Definitely not. It's the topic that catches the eye, so I think that is a good lesson for all of us Newbies: we should try and choose our titles with care.
I read Hubs that appeal to me, and I don't pay much attention to the Hub score either.
I read hubs that look interesting. Sometimes I wonder why they have the scores they have. The title is more important than the score.
I make a habit of reading the latest hubs that have an interesting topic/title regardless of the hubscore. Not that there is anythign wrong with a good score. I turn to higher hub scores if I'm looking for research, but for pleasure reading, I like to see what people are thinking about "right now".

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

From past experience and from most of what I have read it is uncommon for hub scores to go up on a weekend. Please let me know your experience with this.

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What should I read into that? Most people say that one should not concern...

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is recommend to get a good score.It is disheartening not to get a feedback. For...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of priority about what to do next.Up until now I've been focused on the traffic data and...
