    I’m new to this platform. So far I’ve written four articles and my scores on each one keep changing between 70 and 78. How does this affect my earning and profile credibility? Also I’m working as a professional writer, do these scores matter to anyone who hires me for a writing job?

    My second question is about the placement of articles on the niche’s main page. Is it dependent on the scores or Hubpages randomly does that?

      Scores mean very little. If your article scores drop very low then they may become unfeatured. I think that's around 48, but I'm not certain.

      Your personal (hubber) score reflects your activity more than anything else.

      Neither can affect anything or anyone outside of HubPages.

      Edit: I took a look at your profile. How have you been able to write so many articles in such a short space of time? You know you can't republish anything that has been published elsewhere?

        Bev, fyi, one of my recent article this year had a score of 68 on publishing. But it soar to 72, and gradually slide down to 48. But its still featured. I'll edit it later.

      As far as I'm aware (and I'm not 100%), your articles are scored by their SEO, readability, and how long people tend to spend reading them. The personal score is to do with your consistency and activity. But honestly, neither matter that much unless you're scoring really low.

      I would love to be able to nab a job with my 'hubscore,' but no one is going to be interested outside of HubPages.   

      I'm not sure what you mean by the last question. You get to decide the category of your article when you create it, and then you have the option to send it to a niche site afterward. Sometimes the hubpage staff will do the latter for you.

      Best of luck on here btw. It takes some getting used to and most of us don't make a huge amount on here but it's a fun platform to write on.

    I would not be concerned about the hubscores on the articles. Your earnings are based on readership, and readers do not see your score. My most profitable hub articles are not my highest scores, and some of my high scoring articles are not that profitable. Good luck.
