I might have missed the information session and articles or just not too technologically advanced because I can't seem to find how Hub Scores, Blog/ Article Scores, User Scores or Karma are calculated, and what they really mean.
Can someone please help me out here? Thank you!
Those are all a secret and HP isn't telling.
Then, do you know what is the significance of the scores?
Paradigm is right -- they are fairly meaningless in the grand scheme of things. If your a hub has a high score or if your author score is 100, you stand a better chance of someday maybe being featured on HP's homepage for a while, but that's about it. And HubKarma is absolutely and totally meaningless.
You can increase your Hub Karma by linking to other hubbers, posting on forums, answering questions, commenting on other peoples hubs and participating on the hub pages website.
Your hub score will change depending on traffic.
From a Hub Pages point of view they want you to bring traffic in externally to improve their website, so if 75% (for example) of your traffic is from external sources you will have a very high hub score. If you get continual traffic, your hub score will increase. If you hub is only viewed for 2 weeks and then the traffic drops so will your hub score. Basically more traffic = higher hub score.
It is true that it is Hub Pages secret but remember - they want you to bring traffic in from external sources.
I personally get 90% of my traffic from external sources, my hubs with the highest scores are the ones that bring that traffic in.
Why has adding more links from my hubs to other hubs and topics pages brought my hub Karma down from 88 to 72?
Because you've drawn the mistaken conclusion that it's the quantity of links is what causes HubKarma to go up.
Thank you a lot for your reply. It was very informative.
I have this hub that goes to 94, then 86, then 94, then 86, then 94…. A curiosity indeed...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

My best hub for traffic which gets 40 views a week and climbing has a hub score of only 82. I have two other hubs which have not had a single view in one month and they have the same score about. That does not make any sense. Can anyone explain?

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What should I read into that? Most people say that one should not concern...

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 posted a number of hubs the other day, which all started out at a relatively low score as they usually do--somewhere in the 40s and 50s. I saw my score drop a point or two, which I would normally see. Since then, the hubs have been steadily rising into the 60s, 70s, and 80s, which is also normal...
