Apparently they are gone. The score on the Hub never made any difference to me. I read the headline and the first one or two paragraphs and then decide if I am going to finish it or move on. I do not think the score is a big selling point in attracting page views. I may be wrong. It is just an opinion without any evidence to back it up.
I'm not sure, but I agree with Larry Wall in that it never made a difference in my decision whether or not to read a Hub. As a matter of fact, the first time my husband was browsing through Hubpages and saw them he thought they indicated # of page views. So I imagine they didn't do much to actually promote the individual hubs or hub authors and so maybe it was decided they were more confusing than helpful.
So if they aren't listed then why not just eliminate it.
I can hardly keep up with all the changes not only on HP but other sites...I don't visit for a week..and when I do..the site is almost impossible to navigate...and it's like " start over again"..ugh technology.....
I have never paid much attention to hubscores myself, I would imagine that those who are not members of the site had no idea what those numbers represented anyways. I guess that it does not bother me too much either way.
I think HP removed it from the hubs so that when visitors are reading the hub they don't get distracted by it. There are wonderful hubs with low hubscores and a visitor might think that the article has less value than one with a high hubscore. The scores are now only visible within the site unless a visitor wants to go searching the best, hot and newest hubs which is unlikely. I like the anonymity of it as I think there was too much attention given to it.
The hubscore changes over time, so it's not the best measure to tell if a hub is good or not, considering its score may increase tomorrow.
Personally I'm fine with eliminating the hubscore. I used to 'agonize' over those darn numbers. Hooray!

As I have found today! I was led to believe that hubs of 75 and over were worth holding on to but obviously not! I just had one with a score of 81 getting the zzs!

I would like a better explanation of the Hub Score. I have a Hub that I uploaded on May 12th, it's ranked #2 on Google search results for its main keyword phrase, it's getting 175 visits per day sent by Google, but the Hub Score is only 78. Is that because someone at MTurk didn't like...

I am sort of disappointed. I try to be active in the site as much as possible, comment on other people's hubs, help out in the forums, add new hubs once every two weeks, participate in the question and answer and my hubscore is slowly decreasing. Any advice from expert Hubbers on how to...
