    Can anyone answer this question ? I have a so-called score of 53 written beside my  title on my hub page. In my profile, my hub score is 18. What is the difference between these two numbers ? Which one is the REAL hub score ??

    Thanks,

    Robert

    I think the score 53 is for your hub and the score 18 is for you - the hubber.  There is only one score for the hubber and a unique score for each individual hub.

    Each hub gets its own separate score. The score goes up and down, too, according to a lot of factors including the quality of the content and the traffic it generates. There are other factors besides that, as well but I don't know what they all are.

    The other score, the one on your profile and what you see here in the forums, is your author score. It is an overall score and again it goes up and down. As long as you publish quality work that score will improve. The key here is to get your author score above 75, so that your hubs will be listed on the search engines. Since you've just joined, the score is low, but it will rise fairly quickly.

      I don't think that is a requirement for your hubs to be listed by search engines.  I just joined yesterday.  My author score is still lower than 75.  My first and only one hub has already been indexed by Google and I have even received few referrals from Google today.  The hub score and author score are just internal ranking system used by HubPages.com.  Search engines don't recognize them.  They have their own algorithm to rank the search result for each keyword.

        I think you're right. My hub scores don't affect my traffic either. Some of my low-score hubs get pretty good traffic actually. But still, I like high hub scores; they make me smile :-)

    If your author HubScore is lower than 75, HubPages will apply a "nofollow" tag to all the links on all your Hubs but that won't prevent the page from being indexed.

    For more info on this, read this thread, http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/1277#post5548

      Aaaah I had been given the impression that Author scores below 75 prevented indexing. Glad to hear that's not the case at all. You have a good memory, Relache, to be able to dig up that thread. Thanks for the correction.

    Also, a hub under 50 will have nofollow applied to all the outbound links.

    And too many of them and all your hubs will have the penalty applied to it.

    I've been keeping a running list of all things hubscore related in my HubScore hub.

      Same here.

      It happens when a /quote tag gets accidentally deleted from a quoted post.
