I'm very new to this, and have literally just signed up today. I had to stop part-way through my first hub, due to other work committments but have just come back to re-start work on it and am slightly bemused by the fact that on my profile a score is shown.
Bearing in mind that I haven't published the said article yet, can anybody tell me how this part-complete piece of writing has been scored and what that score tells me about my writing so far?
It would probably be a really useful tool for me if I understood what the scoring criteria was, but do you think I can find anything about it!? Well obviously not else I wouldn't be asking, I guess.
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
Hub score is to determine the quality of individual Hubs, much like Google ranks popular pages. Many factors contribute to our rating scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being our top score.
It is computed by following
* Amount of traffic - including percentage from reputable sources other than HubPages
* The reputation of the Hubber - your Hubber Score and contribution to the community
* The response of readers to your hub - including comments, thumbs up, etc.
* The uniqueness of content - copying content already available on the web will be penalized
I doesnot know exactly but according to hub pages this given
Your low author score is nothing for you to worry about, and the unpublished hub has no bearing on it. Your score will probably be low for some time, but that should correct itself within a week or so.
As for the scoring of the unpublished hub, they tend to start out at 50. If you leave them unpublished for a week or so, they may grow. Ultimately, the hub will get a score that reflects traffic, comments, the amount of quality content, ratings up/down etc.
You will find the information about the author score (hubscore), score for individual hubs, and much more in the FAQs:
Don't listen to Website Examiner.. There is no more important number than your Profile score.
The score is the result of an elaborate calculation developed by researchers at HubPages University in Fresno. This calculation can be expressed as such:
As you can see by a quick review of the equation, there is only one sure way to increase your score substantially, and that would be to send me $10 via Pay Pal.
You forgot to carry the 7. The funds should actually be sent to me.
I'm using the 'new math'.. there are no '7s'
Don't listen to them and watch your pockets, they both are notorious pick pockets and scam artists and pulling-your-leg-kinda-guys hiding behind their avatars.. To improve your score you just need to draw couple of zeroes on the right side. So if you have 26, you'll have 2,600. Nice score! You can sell it then and get good money for it.
Who are you going to believe, Home Girl, or someone who has a Hub Score of 134??

Why so little, Greek One? Ask for $47.99. It sounds more solid and promising, like the Internet opportunites they are selling right and left on Internet: " I was a restaurant worker and now I am getting $10,568.57 a day!" You pay $47, $97, $27, $17 (what the heck, anything,please), for my opportunity, you'll be earning the same. Yea, right.

Speaking of scores, whatever happened to our old friend #1?
I forget his name, but his score always floated between 1 and 11 (usually 1) so that became his nickname.
beginning to sound familiar.. what was his main topic of interest?
In an ironic yet appropriately cruel twist of fate, he was wearing a Cincinnati Reds hat while visiting the McCarthy museum, was mistakenly identified as a Communist, and was deported to Beijing

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

I recently got my lowest score ever for a book review on Kate Chopin's novel, The Awakening.Anyone want to give me some feedback? Usually my scores start around 50 and go up as I construct the hub.The entire review is my original writing. I didn't copy any text.

Its funny to me that a new 1400+ word hub is still low in ranking than an unpublished hub...

HubPages is very firm in their rule to only use photos for which you have permission to use. Hypothetically, what happens if you break this rule? I've seen many people using images that are clearly not theirs to use and I was just wondering if this affects them in any way...
