    Do Hub Score and Hubber Score really matter at all?

    With the continuous changes in Hubpages, I noticed that Hub score may not be relevant anymore more so the the Hubber Score. I know certain Hubber score is needed before you can have do-follow links, but other than that, do Hubber score and hub score make any difference? Or do you think the idea should be scrapped now?

    No my friend, they matter not. Only the numbers that matter are the one's going into your Paypal account. Have a great day!

    They don't matter much (but it's fun to get to 100, isn't it?).  I don't care if they are scrapped, though a lot of people seem to like them. They are easy to ignore and do no harm.

      Yes, I have to agree with you that getting 100 makes me feel a little special!

    From what other Hubbers have told me, it appears that the scores are not as important as keeping with the rules and generating enough traffic to earn a decent dollar.

    While Hubber Score is seen as a bad way of judging Hubbers (especially new writers who might be dismissed for this), it's still a good thing to increase. Whenever I reach 100 I like to stay there to show that I'm dedicated to making quality Hubs. And the higher my Hubscore, the more I learn from my articles and what examples of a good hub are for future reference.

    Sadly the system is broken beyond belief. You can post multiple insightful comments and have many upvotes on your articles, but your Hubscore won't change. But stay logged out of the site for several days, and it shoots up. There is zero consistency with the current scoring system so it's hard to tell what you're doing right or wrong, and some may rush to amend it, when they are in fact doing the opposite of what they want to.

    It shouldn't be scrapped, just fixed. If it were more consistent with rising and descending scores, I think it would give us more incentive to keep those numbers up. I don't really care about Hubber Score any more because it fails to go below 98 nowadays.

      And I think that will be a nice idea! Hubscore and Hubber Score definitely need so reformatting. Hopefully, that will happen soon. smile

    I still have no idea how the scores work. I do try to write hubs so they have at least an 80 to start with. As for the hubber score, I don't think I'll ever get it. I'd like to stay in the 90s myself, but other people's scores aren't important to me. I've read great hubs from people with low hubber scores and bad hubs from people with high hubber scores. That said, I don't think they really matter because no one can figure out what they mean, how or why they go up and down, or anything else.
