I would like to know if a higher hub rank score helps one in getting google to rank the hub higher in the search results?
No this is an internal thing...your hubscores have nothing to do with Google's ranking systems. It does not have any bearing on your earning either.
I agree with sofs....the hubscore has nothing to do with Google's ranking. They are based on completely different things.
Google PR uses googles PR algorithm which mostly relates to the quality of webites linking to yours. Hub Score relates to many factors not linked into PR.
The only crossover could be that if you do have good PR, you will likely rank well, which is turn will birng more organic traffic to your hub, increasing your hubscore. So really I would say that a high PR page is likely to increase your hub score, rather than the other way around.
I am pretty sure HP takes page views into account when calculating HubScore. That would mean the better you page ranks on Google and the more traffic it receives the higher your HubScore would be. I think your question reverses actual cause and effect.
Whilst it does nothing in the eyes of Google it is an indicator to yourself as to the "quality" of your work and as to how others (and google) MAY perceive your Hub..
Therefore if you have a hub that settles at a miserable score of 30 you can be pretty sure that it will also be seen by google and readers as being awful! If you are 70+ then I would guess that you could be happy that your work is as good (or as bad) as anything else out there on the web with regard to the length of your content, the number of H2 headings, photos, videos....
I just posted an extensive Hub that explains SEO and optimizing a webpage for Google. You might find some helpful information there. Google uses its own data to evaluate the importance of a webpage and the Google PageRank often has nothing to do with the page's ranking on search results, let alone a Hub score. Search results are based upon Google's opinion of which webpages are the best answer to the search queries.

Is page ranking the ultimate goal?The reason I ask this is because I'm new to this business and so I've been studying Hubpages, SEO techniques and a lot of blog-related material recently and it seems that page ranking is what everyone is shooting for. However, I've checked the page ranking for many...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Alright, this is a very basic question (yes, I know it is, but.....) I thought I understood this but the other night, someone told me that indexing has no affect on page ranking. He went as far as to say that he has purchased page ranking from Google, etc. I have not heard of...

I've heard to disregard that but I'm still a little curious. Honestly I don't know how the score is even decided but those of you that have a lot of followers or have been able to make money, what is your average score per article?Thank you!

Is it true that you can follow too many hubbers, causing your hub score to lower?I have been wondering if following a large number of hubbers can cause your hub score to get 'dinged'. I recently had a relatively new hubber (who shall remain nameless) tell me that following too many hubbers will...
