    Good question, Dmop.  I am hanging in here to see what others think.

    I am not sure and I have only been a Hubber for 3 weeks so I am learning all about this too, I think I will go with teaches...below and find out the real answer as the results come in, Whether I am making lots of money yet is not bothering me because I believe in time I will make some money even if its just a modest amount. Considering that I have been on here for 3 weeks, I just think I have to be in the loop for allot longer before the two scores collide and bring some money my way! I am sure some of our seasoned Hubbers have plenty of ideas on this! Good Luck and Happy Hubbing!

    I don't know, but I seem to have do not follow links all of a sudden.  My views have dropped off significantly in the last week.  If Hubpages does not fix it then I will have to find somewhere else to post.  I went from 100+ google views a day to 0 views from google.  It doesn't make sense.

    See Hubscore and Hubber Score written by SimoneSmith, a HubPages employee, for the answer to your question: … bber-score

    Basically, Hub score measures a number of factors, INCLUDING traffic to each hub. It also has some way of evaluating where the traffic comes from. As Simone says, "The quality of your traffic will also influence the metric (if a higher percentage of your traffic comes from reputable sources, you'll see a more positive effect on your HubScore)."

    Hubber score takes into the average hubscores of all your hubs, then ALSO factors in how you participate in the Hubpages community.

    Note to michiganman (since comments aren't working): If your hub's score is below 40, its links become nofollow. If your hubber (author) score falls below 75, all your links become nofollow.

    A really low Hubscore can cause a hub to lose Google traffic, because hubs with scores below 40 are (I think?) also not featured in "related" links in the sidebar of other hubs or listed in the Hubpages directory of hubs. Google finds hubs through links, so if those links aren't there, Google may not send traffic.

    But usually, it's the other way around: if your hub gets at least some traffic, its hubscore goes up, and lots of hubs getting traffic make your overall hubber score go up.
