Authorscore/hubberscore and individual hubscore are different things. It's little confusing to see the same caption for both. When we hoover the mouse around profile pics' score and hubs' score it shows hubscore in both case. Many a newbies become confused with it. Better fixing it?
That's indeed confusing. It would be better if HubPages defined consistent terminology and used it throughout the site. We could refer to HubScore and AuthorScore for example. We have to use different words because the numbers don't mean the same thing.
It is already being referred to as HubScore and HubberScore (AKA AuthorScore AKA User Score).
It is not, that's what saleheensblog is saying. If you hover your mouse over the number near your profile photo, it says hubscore, not something like HubberScore or AuthorScore.
When I wrote the hub HubScore almost 3 years ago there was mentions of Hubber Score, Author Score and User Score (all being the same thing) in the FAQs. Which was revamped in the last 6 to 12 months.
A year and a half later I wrote one on HubberScore.
Not sure if the the mouseover the profile hubberscore has always been there as hubscore. But there has always been two different meanings for both sets of scores.

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be....

Hello All,I joined this community only couple of days back and I'm still going over the help pages. One thing which throws me off is my hubber score. While it is not in the 90's, a hubber score of 54 with NO hubs seems...

I have been on Hubpages for almost 3 years now! I have never experienced such a low HubberScore of 43-45, it has always been 70+, even in my worst days. What's even worse for my current situation, it is that this...
