Should I wait until my score is over 75 before I publish my 1st hub?

    Should I wait until my score is over 75 before I publish my 1st hub?

    I've read so much about these scores and their significance. Would I really be wasting my time to publish while my score is only 70?

    Don't wait, start publishing my friend.  A sure fire way to improve your score is to write some quality content and be involved on the HP site.  In my opinion, the score is not as important as quality.  My scores, both Hub scores and Hubber score, go up and down from week to week.  Good luck on your first Hub.

    Many people have wasted too much time worrying about their user score. Just write the best articles you can and let the cards fall where they may. There is no sure-fire formula for getting a high score. But if you work hard and put care into your writing, the score will eventually reflect that.

    Start writing because publishing good hubs that score higher than your current hubber score will only help to raise your score. Don't worry if the hub is a little low or your overall hubber score drops a little when the hub first goes live. Both will increase as people read the hubs. Also, without having any hubs published, you'll get fewer people following you. A lot of hubbers are like me and want to see what topics people write about before we make a choice whether or not to follow someone.

    Score can't be seen by Google or external sites, so it's only an internal scoring system.

    Score doesn't impact on traffic or earnings, it's usually the other way around - the more traffic you get, the higher your score will go.
