After a person posts/publishes a new hub, a score appears near the title of the Hub. Is this score random generated and just flips out, or is it based upon words used in the title, or upon content in the hub? I've received scores as low as middle 40's up to mid 60's without any comments or readers, so I'd like to know how there scores are computed and posted to individual hubs, and why?
How is HubScore computed?
HubScore takes into account many factors and will change over time as data about its performance 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:
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 highly penalized
We reserve the right to change the factors used to assess a Hub’s HubScore as we continue to determine those that measure a great Hub. The bottom line is if you write original, useful content, your HubScores will eventually reflect the quality and work you've put into your Hubs. Please try to avoid getting too hung up on your Hubs' HubScores.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. With the new layout, there is no hubscore, at least it is not posted. It may be something they are going to eliminate. I'm not sure. In 'my accounts', it still shows a score.

There is the oddest of correlations between my traffic and my hubberscore - that when my traffic goes down, my hubberscore goes up. Like all of us here, I don't understand the purpose of either the hubscore or the...

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...

I have read what HP has posted about HubScores plus quite a few forum postings on the subject over the last several years. If the scores are HP's way of judging quality, then I want to see a higher score if I can get...

I am sort of disappointed. I try to be active in the site as much as possible, comment on other people's hubs, help out in the forums, add new hubs once every two weeks, participate in the question and answer and...

I have read how hubscore is computed but was still surprised the other day when I saw a hubscore of 1. It just is somewhat amazing to me that some hubscores are 10 or below. Don't get me wrong----I'm...
