I am curious if it is the Hubbers score of 75 or an individual hub score of 75 that is required for a search engine to "see" the hub and include it in its rankings.
Search engines will see and index a hub with hubscore and hubber-score of ZERO. So the scores don't really affect your rankings etc.
However, the links you place in your hub won't be DOFOLLOW unless you have your author score above 74 and the hubscore(score of the hub where backlinks are) 40 or above.
No. The 75 threshold has nothing to do with search engines seeing a hub or not. You need an author score of 75 or higher to get the "nofollow" tag off your out-bound links on your hubs.
Thanks to both of you. I am in the phase now where I am trying to whip underperforming hubs into shape and want to understand this fact.
BTW, you shouldn't be worrying about your author score because its higher than most of us.
I had no idea that hubscore affected your 'dofollow' status, thats a handy bit of info!

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to go down or what is the problem?

This is what I have observed with my hubscore. After publishing a hub and leaving comments on other hubs, I get lots of traffic but the hubscore falls by the hour. When I stay away from HubPages for a few days, and the traffic drops to nothing, the hubscore starts to climb and reaches an all-time...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

I have a hub that went unfeatured several days back. It was my second hub, and it really was in dire need of rewriting. After doing an extensive revision, I sent it out to the QAP. Then I checked the stats to see how many views it has gotten to date. I was surprised to see that a...
