Understanding Hubscore, Hubber score and what makes them both tick

Hubber score of 99 is shown here

We all know it feels impossible for some of us to ever hit that whopping 100.

Do you know how to hub?

I'm not going to try to tell you that there's some magic trick or formula to learning how to score high stats on Hubpages as a writer, a hub community member or whatever you've come to Hubpages to do.

What I will tell you from my 16 months of intense hubbing experiences is, this thing takes true dedication, and a true devotion to communicating your efforts here on hubpages, if any sort of success is to be attained here at all, unless you get lucky and hit the SEO jackpot.

Statistically your hubscore will float all around, and at times it may drive you nuts trying to figure it all out. You will find hubs written about how to do this, and how to do that, but one things for certain, there isn't one direct way to get to the top of hubpages, because there are many.

I believe that time is the only teacher of such things, as well as a bit of trial and error, and for every writer starting here on hubpages. It's a totally different experience overall for each and every person who joins Hubpages, mainly due to the undeniable fact that we all come from entirely different backgrounds, geographic locations, and from different time periods of our life experiences on earth.

Many of us hubbers are also armed with entirely different skill sets to offer from our real life career's on the ground, or have differing job related work experiences as well, if any. Most of all, our web experiences overall and knowledge of its application, web page optimization (SEO), or usage really does come into play as well. Your overall knowledge of online tooling, image tooling, and video tooling makes a huge difference for most hubbers too.

On the way up to that cool number that keeps bouncing around

I finally surpassed the hubber score of 98, its been a tough time trying to maintain a high score, but it is worth it to try and keep it going. Hubtivity is the key though, meaning your overall hubpages activities on the network as a whole.

Don't get them confused

This is not your 'hub score' under your profile, that number there signifies your 'hubber score' & they are different indeed.

Hubber Score

If you go to the Hubpages learning center, you will find the true definition for this ultimate key and dominant factor of measuring a hubbers performance ratings. The hubber score is not only a statistical tool of sorts, its also something of a measure of a single hubbers success when it comes to the hubpages community here.

I look at things this way on hubpages, and in terms of a hubber's score; when all the hub love pores in to a persons account, leaving trails of messages all over their my account section, well this is an indication to the system here that you have been doing something right.

I think the only time you should truly be worried about your hubber score, is if you've been doing something wrong here by becoming a potential violator of the terms of use, also when the well runs dry and the comments quit coming.

How does it work? or doesn't?

There are many differing factors that affect a persons overall hubber score, and many of them include the improper usage of hubpages community area's for all communications purposes. If you wanna lower your score pretty much, then do these things below. (Not wise though)

The Drum Roll Please:

  • Randomly commenting on peoples hubs without reading them.
  • Trying to spam any location here on hubpages is a violation.
  • Getting flagged for writing overly promotional content repeatedly.
  • Abuse the forums section, by posting links to your hubs.
  • Continuously following hubbers aimlessly without caring to communicate efforts in any other way.
  • Answering or asking loads of aimless questions in the Q&A areas.
  • Publishing of copy-written digital content into your hubs.
  • Using the message area here to email contact people for spam purposes.
  • Getting constant hub violations for writing substandard hubs.
  • Writing poems in area's not sectioned off for poetry, or the subject of poetry.
  • Writing irrelevant content to that of your subject matter, or submitting content improperly titled purposely for self promotional means, in the wrong hub categories, or not befitting of a good hubbers conduct or practice.
  • Having more low ranking hubs then anything in terms of hub scores, not to be confused with hubber scores.
  • Publishing hubs super quick to try to game the system with loads of numbers in a single day, very low in quality.
  • Each time you publish a hub realize that the hubscore will drop slightly, to make room for new hub stats, since the new hub has a low score starting out, and things will only settle in terms of the score after that hub achieves lift off in views, if it indeed does.
  • Ignoring the hubpages terms of use, never reading it at all, or not abiding by it. This one occurs to folks a great deal, by them continuously being flagged for the same incorrect pattern of hub writing, because they haven't learned the rules yet.

More useful tips-

  • When creating questions here on hubpages, try to inspire the writing of a hub with them.
  • When answering questions generate entire hubs in union with the question.
  • Try to arrange your hubs with all the attractiveness a website supplies, images, videos, polls, relevant ads from Amazon, and Ebay.
  • Create hub recipes & even try to learn to create hubpages videos, they both help increase your stats on hubpages big time.
  • Utilize at least 3 text capsules, and multiple misc capsules in your hubs where applicable.
  • Utilize the forums on hubpages in the order of the rules there, and don't create havoc or try to spam users or anything else wrongly, communicate effectively there.

Now that you know what lowers a hubber score, here's a few useful tips to increase it

A Hubber score is something very interesting to write about, because it pertains to your overall activities on hubpages.

It's the sum and average of every single thing you choose to do here, as well as not do. With that being said below is a few tips to get things going for new and old hubbers looking to boost things up in the correct ways of doing it.

  • Create relevant links to your hubs contents using the links capsule for fellow hubbers and your hubs (Increases hubkarma & hubber score).
  • Use the referral tracker when sending hub links out outbound for social sharing (On places like Facebook, Google+ etc...) share hubs with social networks, to friends, family members, etc... but share sparingly
  • I limit my social shares to 5 per day tops directly to my Facebook timeline, no duplicate posts neither, 1-3 post per FB group per day tops, but share other folks hubs too.
  • Keep in mind Pinterest isn't a good location to share the referral tracker, and may lead to your account having issues there, if you've joined it already.
  • Comment on hubs, but make sure you read the hub or your comment will be in-genuine.
  • Communicate to your fellow hubbers on and off of hubpages, establish friendships.
  • Participate in hubpages contests and challenges, which scores you differently at times due to your hubs receiving more communications during those periods, when many hubbers are helping each other during its high tides of viewing and judging as well.

Did you know that hubpages has a system in place to actually detect everything we do on the network here, thoughts to ponder on.

Hey thanks Julie, your too cool for being the very first person to respond to my hub.

Yeah I figured many folks might need such a hub to help them get out of the wrong direction that their in today as a hub writer, some people just don't realize any of this you know.

An excellent thought out hub on the infamous Hub score. I've been at the Hubs for well over two years now. I started out as Saddlerider and did most of the things you mentioned here. I back linked, commented, followed, wrote well over a 100 hubs and achieved a following just short of 1000 along with on numerous occasions reaching the Holy Grail of scoring 100.

However since changing my username to one that would be more recognizable as a poet's nom de plumb Vincent Moore, my score now hovers between a low of 90 to a high of 97. I am very comfortable with this, as I was becoming uncomfortable showing up at 100 amongst my fine fellow scribes. I trimmed my followers to 300 plus and follow about the same.

After all what good are NAMES following just for the sake of a follow. Unless we can stay active with a well established group of talented writers like yourself, I find it futile then to follow writers who I don't read or comment on. One has to be selective as there are over 250,000 hubbers out there. Randomly following just to be followed back is not kewl. I am trying my best to stay caught up, but many times I slip for awhile and come back. So be patient when you don't see me at your hub often, I'm somewhere out here either writing or trying to get inspired to do so. Peace and blessing to you my very fine scribe.

Hey there Vincent, I never keep track of the fact of who visits, leaves messages and the likes, I just try to keep up with it all myself, and I never feel compelled to have to do anything out of my way, unless someone really goes out of their way for me here. Then I will kindly repay the favor for them in return, and then some.

I also like to surprise some outstanding hubbers from time to time, for their amazing efforts if I gain notice of it all, where even I can sense it, whether it be in a hub of theirs, many hubs, or anywhere else on or off the network here at hubpages.

You my friend are an awesome writer, and don't need to worry about returning to my hubs often, I know you already, and I simply love reading your material from time to time, just as many other great hubbers I read from as well and how they do for me too, Time is of the essence.

Thanks for the awesome insightful comment here, lets hope other hubbers can learn a bit from my pretty intense experiences here thus far, & poring out from this hub. Cheers to powerful connections and a super hubbing community of friends, and as you stated great scribes.

I really like all about this hub. It's helpful for many new hubbers and for hubbers who have been around for a while, but don't reach a high hubber score. Somehow my hubber score has been high a long time even if I don't write hubs very often. Maybe it's because I try to stay connected to the hubbers I follow. Thank you for sharing all these tips and keep up the good work to explain how things work on HubPages!

@Made, Thank you for checking out my hub and for taking the time to critique it a bit. I know many folks have issue with the whole hubber score, and I myself keep getting frustrated when I see it drop from 99, when I'm working my hardest to do everything in my power to simply achieve 100 for the first time.

I still have yet to achieve that, but it will be the day when i finally do, and i will celebrate the fact, and will probably break out a bottle of champagne, and i don't even drink.

@TToombs08, thanks for the cool comment, and like I just told Made up above, I just can't wait for the day I hit 100, and I hope it won't be when I'm not on hubpages what a tragedy that would be for my chances to celebrate such a hubpages goal victory of achievement.

CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

Thanks @Patty Kenyon, I'm happy you found my hub of use to you, many of us have not had much help when we first joined hubpages, and so learning many of these things by default it what occurs to many folks.

I on the other hand read everything pertinent to users responsibilities prior to joining anything on the web, and even if much of its contents appear to be dry and similar to all the other networks out here.

I'm just happy I read the terms of use here, because many mistakes like that have lead to folks losing all their hubpages works, and potential here to earn major income over time.

kelleyward 4 years ago

Hi cloudexplorer! I've tried to do most of what you said here and my hubber score has never gone higher than 94. Oh well I'll keep trying. What I've also noticed is when a hub goes viral on Facebook or Pinterest my author score drops a lot 5 points of more. Maybe it's because it's just viewed and not read entirely by a lot of people during that time. Thanks for writing this! Shared! Kelley

PWalker281 4 years ago

I've had a profile score that reached 100 several times, though not consistently, and on as little as 50 published hubs. It used to be consistently in the high 90s but dropped when one of my hubs was unfairly unpublished (long story, don't want to get into it here; wrote a hub about it). I also recently wrote a hub on which all the ads were pulled because of so-called "sensitive" subject matter (it's about the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy). So I'm thinking those two events, the unpublishing of the hub and the "sensitive-subject" hub have dropped my profile score into the low to mid 90s, even though the number of page views on most of my hubs has increased.

For this and other reasons, I don't worry to much about profile scores or even hub scores as long as I know that I'm publishing quality content that people in web land want to read. Moreover, I write and publish on my own schedule and will never participate in a 30-hubs-in-30-days challenge because I'm not a fast writer and for me it's not a numbers game. It's about quality content, and I can't produce quality content writing a hub every day. It takes me a good two to three days to research, write, and publish one hub, and they average around 1,200 words.

I'm also not as social as many hubbers here are, which for me, is okay. I try to read a hub or two every day and comment when appropriate, I follow only those hubbers whose writing I enjoy, I only write questions when I don't know something and need an answer to help with my writing here, and I only answer questions when I'm sure I know the answer. Finally, I never participate in the forums which, from past experience, tend to be places where people can get extremely argumentative.

The really important number in my book is "page views." When I see the number of page views steadily increase, that means that my content is getting out there and that people find it valuable. It also means that I'm getting income from my writing efforts which is always a good thing in my book :-).

Honestly, I'm not going to change my behavior in order to get a higher profile score. It's just not worth it to me. At this stage in life, (60+), what's more important is doing what I love in a way that's enjoyable, and if it means going for long stretches without publishing (which I have done) or not doing other things if the only reason to do them is to increase my profile score, then so be it.

Hope this hasn't offended you, Mike. I always enjoy reading your hubs when I get the chance, but there are some things, profile and hub score being one of them, that I have pretty strong feelings about. Sorry to be so long-winded :-).

I also wanted to add (but ran out of editing time) that this hub contains some great advice on how to have a great experience writing at HubPages. I voted it up, useful, and (very) interesting.

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

Hey @Kelley, I recently broke the 98 hubber score barrier, which prompted me to think about writing this hub here. I found it very difficult to manage a high hubber score, and I think it even has more to do with traffic levels, as well as individuals hub scores for each hub.

Mine are pretty low for the most part, and range from 99-50 and so I think if I had more higher scoring hubs then lower scoring ones, it would make a huge difference, and since I've beefed up my number of hubs a great deal as well, which makes them tougher on one another stats wise.

I'm not going to quit my momentum until I hit 100, and can write another cool hub about that achievement, cause that one will be the one to out do all of my hubs for sure, I hope.

CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

Its all good PWalker, I take hubpages serious but not as serious real life, and so I think we all gotta take these digital things in stride you know.

I think you've handled your issues with hubbing both the good ones, and the bad ones pretty smoothly according to your hub I read about it, and I also read the other one you posted in here the 50 shades of grey. They both were very well written, and to me that is all that counts as well.

Quality over quantity, but my goal on hubpages is to write the most high quality hubs in the highest quantity ever, and so this is why I myself am so intense and in every way imaginable. This is a pretty hardcore challenge, but I been like this since I was a child & my mom keep pushing me, and supporting my efforts in everything as you can imagine.

I will not quit until I hit the top of hubpages, even if it takes me 5 years to get there, and by then I should have way over 1500 high quality hubs written.

I was happy to reach 100 my first time. Now I'm standing at 100 for the third time and it just made me smile this time. Nice feeling, but I wouldn't break out a bottle of champagne, LOL! I'm sure it will drop soon again like the times before. I'm going down to 94 sometimes. You're doing a great work on HubPages. Don't worry too much about your hubber score. :)

I'm not worried Made, I'm over motivated here as well as over confident to help motivate others pretty much. It is part of my goal on the web, to help everyone I come in contact with, why not right.

Just a cool technique of sorts actually to help myself earn a much larger audience as well, if Gandhi could do it or the Buddha, why not I. Hehe!

Thanks for the cool message though and for showing a bit of concern, I truly love hubpages and the community here, because its so live and filled with cool people like yourself. It is Fantabulous!

I've probably spent just as much time reading these as I have Hubs on other random topics.

I know I still have a lot to work on but I will probably always have something that needs improvement. Thanks for the tips and advice.

Very interesting and helpful Hub CloudExplorer. I do notice that my Hubber Score bounces quite a bit. But, with publishing more Hubs, my range seems to be narrowing and my low score seems to be steadily rising. I'll tr to keep publishing quality Hubs regularly and participating in the community. We'll see where it goes.

@nmdonders, I believe you that factor of hubbing is truly a personal choice, but I do know that the bots here in the hubpages system detect everything you can and cannot think of.

Its built as a overall scanning and filtering system, to alert hubpages staff as to who's who, and whats what, so there is no escaping the reality that we are being watched here, and constantly under heavy surveillance lol.

HoneyBB profile image

HoneyBB 3 years ago from Illinois

You packed a lot of information in this hub about hubberscores and it makes a lot of sense that everything we do and don't do goes into the final number which fluctuates according to what we put into it. I have found that my mean (average) hubscore (the bold number given as the average score of all hubs published) remains between 78 - 80. If I add a new hub the other hub scores adjust to keep my mean score between these numbers 78-80. Does every hubber get an average mean score after submitting a few or more hubs and then the number of each hub changes only to keep the average numbers from going outside their box so to speak until hopefully somebody reviews your hubs again and either increases or decreases your mean score frame. For example, my mean score appears to be 78-80. Everytime I add a hub, my other hub scores raise keeping my mean score in that range. When my lowest scored hub gains points or any other one gains, my higher scored hubs go down in points still keeping my hub score range between the 78-80. If this is how it works, does everybody have a three point range like the (78-80, for mine) based on the overall quality of their initial hubs until reviewed again.

CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 3 years ago from New York City Author

@HoneyBB, I'm not really sure about how the whole averaging of hubs works and all, but I noticed that my hubs bounce around a great deal in terms of hubscore, and it is definitely a matter of web traffic, and web page ranking as well.

I wouldn't worry so much about the hubscore averages thought, because they will always fluctuate all over the place for the most part.

However, the only thing we can control is how we decide to edit our hubs and also the frequency of publishing them or removing any if at all necessary, this does have a huge effect on hubscore when it comes to a hubs true quality.

I hope this help a bit, and isn't a answer to your inquiry, but its all I could manage to think up. Maybe the hubpages staff or some of the Welcome wagon members know much more about this hubscore averaging process. I do know that J.S. Mathew know a great deal about it, and possible Simone Smith.

Thanks for the comment and for sharing with me Honey.

Great Hub! Everything that you said is true.. I have found that you can ignore hub pages for over 2 years and still maintain a score of over 80. I don't advise this, but it has done three things for my confidence as a writer & for the prospects of being a successful hubber & blogger. 1) People are actually interested in some of my knowledge. 2) My college instructors are right, I do have a gift for writing (I say this with humility). 3) Web traffic takes several things: Patience, quality & a good platform.

@loveofnight yeah that darn hubber score never stays steady, it makes you wonder what really is it there for in the first place, right!

I wouldn't worry much about the errors made in comments, because they are only getting graded for things like insightful things like 1 to 2 words only. Also if they get disapproved by the hub author due to spam or trolling etc... Other then that I wouldn't worry much about comments causing issue due to lettering, or even misspelled words, or poor grammar.

That would be preposterous actually :) if they graded our comments contents in such a way to ruin our hubber score if they didn't make the cut. LOL

Thanks for the cool comment though, it gave me a giggle, oh and also thanks for caring to give my hub here a try, glad you found it of interest to you and or helpful in some way or another.

Being new from Squidoo this type of hub is interesting and useful for us to learn and understand the differences between the two sites. I think I like it here already and my visits have risen as well as I am seeing more comments, on my Hubs. Although I had quite a few from Squidoo already.

I was pleasantly surprised once I had corrected all the missing videos that my lenses are doing great as Hubs. I will be starting to add some more now that I have updated them all to pass the QAP here. Thanks again for the useful info.

@Dressage Husband glad you were able to adjust to Hubpages and from merging your Squidoo lenses I know it's not the easiest transition, but well worth it long term. Good luck and thanks for caring to give my hub a try. Good luck!
