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!

Just few days ago, I posted a hub which I think was well-organised. However, after posting that hub I saw my author score dropping around 2 points. Can anyone explain why did it happen?

Is it important to have good keywords in the summary of the hub? Should the initial article on the hub have most of the keywords? Thank you. I am new.
