Do hubpage scores reflect also the "content" of the material published?
According to HubPages FAQs, yes, the score reflects the quality of "content". Here's what the FAQs say: "the quality of individual Hubs, much like Google ranks popular pages. Many factors contribute to our rating scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being our top score." My assumption is that quality = content.
If one writes the truth, why is that rated lower? I wrote one hub that others had positive comments. Why would I get the lowest score on all of hubpages for that? I think it's political. I feel snubbed and it is frightening as hell.
As Uninvited Writer explains below, what HP likes and what Google likes could be quite different. You could just ignore the HP score.
If the truth was written by someone who was a highly-skilled writer, it would score higher than that same truth written by a poorly-skilled writer.
Relache, that is very interesting to hear, as I'd not realized that.
The subject of the content has nothing to do with it. It's the length and the quality. It's also based on traffic. My hubs range from the 50s to the 90s.
And...after all that...the score does not matter one bit to earnings or whether or not Google indexes it.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

Okay, I published a hub on the 12th of this month...the lovely "noindex" was immediately slapped on it. A little over 24 hours later on the 13th, the noindex tag was supposedly removed.Since the time of the removal I have submitted this hub five times to Google Webmaster Tools and FINALLY...

Lately, I've been checking the feed. I've flagged a couple of articles related to spamming one's own business. After looking more closely, I've also noticed published articles (not even articles) that most would consider extremely sub-standard. I'll be the first to admit that I'm...
