    Can someone tell me what is the 'hub score' please? It seems to have no relevance to the number of page views on my hubs.

      Hi Yellowbutterfly welcome to HP .Hubscore is the score assigned to each of your indivual pages or hubs.
      http://hubpages.com/faq/#hubscore   this shows what goes into the calculation of the hubscore

      HubScore takes into account many factors and will change over time as data continues to stream in. It will also fluctuate quite a bit, seemingly at random, and that is nothing to worry about. The most important HubScore components that you should be concerned with include:

      The quality of the article - as measured through the Quality Assessment Process as well as reader consumption of and interaction with the article

      Whether the article is Featured - as well as whether the article has succeeded in moving to a Network Site

      Hubber reputation - a Hubber's overall Hubber Score and positive contribution to the community.

      Article engagement - including the number of comments the article receives as well as reader engagement with interactive elements such as article Q&A, polls, quizzes, etc.

      Hubber Score is the score that is associated with your profile and can be considered to be somewhat of a composite of your HubScores as well as measurements of your general behavior on HubPages. The most important Hubber Score components that you should be concerned with include:

      HubScores - the collective HubScores of your articles

      Passing the Quality Assessment Process - how successful your articles have been at passing the Quality Assessment Process

      HubPages Network Sites - how often your articles have been chosen for HubPages Network Sites

      Publishing articles - how often you actively publish new articles.

      We reserve the right to change the factors used to assess HubScore and Hubber Score as we continue to determine the factors that indicate great content. The bottom line is if you write original, useful content, your HubScores and Hubber Score will eventually reflect the quality and work you've put into your articles. Please try to avoid getting too hung up on HubScores and Hubber Score.

      Where can I find my HubScores and Hubber Score?
      You can see the HubScore for each of your articles by visiting My Account > Statistics. They are private; other authors will never see them. You can click on "Score" to sort your articles from highest to lowest scored and vice versa. Your lowest-scored articles have the most room for improvement, so when you are ready to edit and update your work, focus on these first.

      Your Hubber Score is located in the lower left corner of your profile photo on your profile page. Unlike your HubScores, your Hubber Score is visible to the public and others will be able to see it when they visit your profile.

    You're right, it has nothing to do with page views. It's just a personal thing that shows how active you are on the site. A lower score means someone doesn't participate much (or writes crappy hubs) and a higher score means someone participates more. I haven't published here for a while, yet my score keeps high because I post in the forums and do my duty hub-hopping and commenting. It also goes up when I advertise my articles on Twitter.

    It's nothing to worry about or keep an eye on, unless it goes under 75 I think. At that point your links are no-follow.

    I don't mean to steal this topic, but I also got a question related to this. Are your hubrank and the score of your hub in anyway related to eachother>

      A HubScore is the score that accompanies one of your Hubs, the Hubber Score (sometimes mistakenly referred to as HubScore by Hubbers) is the score that is associated with your profile, and can be considered to be somewhat of a composite of your HubScores as well as measurements of your general behavior on HubPages.

    You HubPage Score is actually quite different to your HubProfile Score although they are closely related.

    I have written a Hub on what things can affect you HubPages Score here: http://oneit.hubpages.com/hub/How-does- … Score-work in it I compare the HubPage score with how Google ranks its pages.

    As for the HubProfile score which is the number that shows up beside your image on comments and hubs well that is the one that takes into account your Number of Hubs, Your Hub Karma, How active you are in Questions and Forums, etc.

    As a side note SandyMcCollum was right that you must maintain a Hub Profile Score of 75 or Above to keep your Links DoFollow, of course if you're not on HubPages for SEO Purposes then this wouldn't really matter to you. Also your Individual Hubs must stay above 40 to be DoFollow.

    So to clarify you HubPage Score is an indication of how good that actual piece of writing was. And the Hub Profile Score is determined by how many good pieces of writing you do and your overall activity on HubPages.

    i was wondering the same thing. Being new to hubpages, i realized squidoo is now hubpages. The score on my first hub was 57 but it didnt get published. I went in and erased the only link there hoping thats what caused it. Its clean good writing and unique.

      This thread is 3 years old and the way scores are calculated has changed a few times since then.  It's best not to necro old threads like these if you want current information about how HP works.   Here is the up-to-date info on scores

    How to increase hubscore?

    I am also a little bit confused. My Article score is showing as 71 when I check the statistics and it changes over time. But in My Profile section, the score is showing as 82 and at also changes from time to time. Its really confusing.

      It means nothing very much, so don't worry about it.

      There are three scores, by the way. One for each article, one for the average of all your articles, and your hubber score which appears to the bottom left of your profile pic.

    Hubscore and Hubber score don't matter much, like others have said, They are computer-generated and a very general (vague?) indication of quality. The only time that they matter is when they are very low (lower than say 50) - that's a sign that something is wrong. That means either very low quality or the hubber has been breaking rules (plagiarism, forum bans, or whatever)

    You can increase your scores by things like improving the quality of your articles, or engaging more with the community, commenting on articles, writing in the forums etc. Increasing your score(s) won't change your life much though, as has been said.
