Are our hubscores really indicative of the quality of our work on this site?

    They are based on a combination of things. You probably can become better informed by going to the learning center.

    I don't believe hub quality has much effect on hub score but as JThom says, it is a combination of things. I have come here and had a hub score one day of 95, the next day of 100 and I have done nothing different.  so it is somewhat of a mystery.

    When I first started, I assumed they were, but then I read the Learning Center and also watched my scores change daily even though they had not been updated.

    They are relevant in that if they drop below a certain score they will not be included in searches, but other than that I don't believe they are indicative of the quality of writing.

    No, it does not. Much more it indicates your activity and popularity, I guess.

    It appears we need to log in and contribute in some way pretty frequently otherwise our Hubscores go down.   Like many of you, I've noticed my scores go up and down without apparent reason.  However, if I simply go in and answer a question or two, or partake with answers in the various Forums, the score climbs a little.

    I have an awful lot of Hubs placed and suspect that even the number of Hubs one has published makes a difference.   When I started off three years back my score was, on average, lower than it is now.   Now it seems to vary between 96 and 89 no matter what I do.

    Not really---I think the hubscores or the hubberscores fluctuate according to our activeness, popularity  and page views of our hubs, participation in the forums or Q-A section etc.

    Quality of articles, quantity of traffic, hub activity, etc. changes the hubscore. However, the hubpages account that has been placed under probation by team HP for any reason would always reflects low hubscore.
