I'm a new hubber, not even a month old yet. I've been reading through the forums and noticed there is a lot of talk about hubber profile score and hubber score. Are these two one and the same?
Where can I find my hubber profile score or hubber score? I don't see anything in 'my account' that shows this number, or is it too soon for a newbie like me to have a hubberscore?
If you go to your profile it's the number in the lower right hand side of your profile picture.
Neither is very important, just keep writing and pay them no heed. They can be misleading.
Hi Daniel, take theraggededge at her word. You heard her right that neither isimpotant.
It seems tome that you have not yet write a story.okay?
Welcome to HubPages.
Yes, they are one in the same. Your score is resting on the left of your chin. It's a pretty decent score for a newbie. Welcome to HubPages, happy hubbing.
Hey guys, I really appreciate your quick response. Many thanks!
Welcome! Your hubscore is usually a reflection of how well you write and has nothing to do with the traffic coming into your articles. Overall, though, it doesn't make much of a difference. Good luck and happy writing
Marisa, thank you for clarifying. I guess I was going off of my own experience, as I have a pretty high hubscore (usually between 94-98), but barely get any traffic (only a few views a day).
It appears we have two differing views here. One that says traffic is all-important and another that says it's not that important based on his own high score with not much traffic. From what I'm seeing, there is a bit of confusion between the two hubbers.
I'm new to hubing but from what I've gathered so far, after reading so many posts, is that the hubber score does not depend too much on traffic or not at all. However, the hubscore does. Am I correct in saying there is a difference between hubberscore and hubscore? The latter, I understand is the score for each article written by a hubber which is very much influenced by traffic among other things. While the former is the score for the (person) hubber.
Perhaps other hubbers would like to clarify if my comment is correct?
The best way to find out what the scores mean is to read the instructions (yes, I know, real men don't read instructions).
This is what HubPages has to say about scores:

Traffic doesn't appear to make much difference to hubscore. I have a couple of hubs that hover around 99 to 100 consistently and get between 0 and 7 views per day each. Then I have lower scoring hubs that get visits in the hundreds with regular Amazon sales.
Let me share some statistics with you that might be useful (take from it what you will): My highest hubscore is a 96 and it has 365 views. My hub with the highest views has just over 4,000 and it has a hubscore of 83.
Yes, I agree with others. Some of my Hubs with the highest scores get relatively low traffic and some with lower scores get a lot of traffic.
Interesting. I guess it depends. Overall, my highest scoring hubs get the most traffic. Although there are some high scoring hubs (90+) that get very little. On the other hand, I don't have any low scoring hubs (70s-80s) that get a lot of traffic. They get minimal or zero traffic per day. So, for me, more traffic consistently correlates with higher hubscore.
I'm similar to others- my hub with the most traffic only scores in the 80s- I think because it is short.
I have a couple of hubs that sometimes score 100, but they only get c. 10 views a day (although it is going up)
I also have some hubs in the 90s that hardly anyone reads.
I don't think the scores are worth worrying about too much... just concentrate on writing decent articles.

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be. Today, I'd like to talk about the subsequent update to Hubber Score — the score...

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 have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

I have been on Hubpages for almost 3 years now! I have never experienced such a low HubberScore of 43-45, it has always been 70+, even in my worst days. What's even worse for my current situation, it is that this dreadful experience does not seem to have an end, it has been like this for almost 2...

While we Hubbers often tell each other not to worry about each other's scores, and we really shouldn't, here's a quote from an official HubPages document (regarding the Quality Assessment Process) that shows scores have at least some practical value:"Articles written by authors with very high...
