How to Keep Your Hubber Profile Score High

It was fun to hit 100!

Queen for a Day: The first time I hit a 100 hubber score
Queen for a Day: The first time I hit a 100 hubber score

Is There a Way to Keep Your Author Score High?

First, I don’t want this hub—or even the title—to sound arrogant, as if I have all the answers or am a great hubber because my score has stayed in the 90’s once it got there. I have read wonderful hubs from hubbers who have scores of 100 as well as great articles from hubbers whose score may fluctuate greatly, and may be in the 80’s or even 70’s. I don’t know all the factors that affect hub scores. I’ve researched a lot over the past five months that I’ve been involved with HubPages, but I don’t claim to have all the answers. Still, since I joined HubPages, once my score rose above 90, it has stayed above 90, often hovering near 100. On December 24th, 2011, my hubber score actually reached 100 for a day. That was exciting. And although I don’t know that I was really qualified to be there or even to write this hub, I’ll go ahead and give it a shot and try to explain why I think my hubber score has stayed high over my first five months.

It does take some time for the initial score to rise. I remember afer I first started, watching my hubber score at 28 or so, rising several points per day, moreso as I wrote more, and finally hitting the 90 mark. Once I hit 90, I have stayed there and above. My average score seems to be 95 to 97. I have gone as low as 92 or as high as 99. Hoping for that 100 was something I thought would never happen. I understand how elusive it is, though, as there are some great 100 hubbers out there—Patty Inglish, Kathryn Vercillo, Saddle Rider, and more—and I don’t even pretend to be on their level. I also know there are some wonderful writers out there who are frustrated by their score not rising to the level they'd like (and probably deserve). I can't explain those incidences, and my advice isn't a guarantee, but perhaps it will arm new hubbers with some basic information to focus on. As a new hubber, it's hard to know what direction to take, so maybe my suggestions can help.


Tips for Keeping Your Hubber Score High

How has my scored stayed in the 90’s, and even usually in the high 90s? I’m not sure, but I’ll give you the tips I’ve used in the five months I’ve been a part of HubPages.

Write High Quality Articles

I spend a lot of time making sure my articles, or hubs, sound right, the words sound right, the grammar is correct, and the typos don’t exist. I go back over hubs over the months to check them again and correct things that I find when I go back and look. I’m a perfectionist when it comes to grammar, so I can’t help myself from going back and looking at my older hubs from time to time I am mortified when I find an error. I also try to publish at least one hub per week, although I don't always achieve that goal.

Be Involved and Make Comments

Be involved!

Answer questions that are asked and ask your own. I have done a lot of that to where my accolades reflect that I have asked and answered 100 questions. Answer questions that you see. Get involved in forums, too.

Make comments!

Commenting on other hubs makes a difference and will also bring more traffic to your own hubs as you get more followers. I try to read 2 to 5 hubs per day and make comments.

Research SEO and Backlinks

Learning about key words and linking to other hubs and sites may increase scores. I’m busy with my day job as well as trying to write hubs in my spare time, so researching SEO is on the backburner for me. I do try to submit my hubs to a few sites at times, at least Facebook and Twitter. I consider Reddit, StumbleUpon, and Delicious, among others. Other than that, I'm trying to learn more about this subject as I go.

Keep writing and keep learning....

I don’t know if this hub has helped hubbers to know how to keep their hubber scores high. If nothing else, maybe it at least helps the newer hubbers to know what things are important in staying involved on this site. And who knows? Maybe we all need tips from other hubbers that might positively affect our hubber scores! I know that I appreciate any tips from other hubbers. Let's just keep writing and learning. That's what I'm trying to do.

Well, I think you reached 100 because you are involved in this site, this happily addictive writing site, which I now read more than the Huffington site. And, as you say and suggest, be involved. I thought this was a worthy hub to write also. Thanks!

Morning Victoria.

It's nice getting info that one can understand.

Thanks for letting us know how you do it.

I have just had my 1st birthday on hubpages and don't ever remember being under 90 mind you i was here a couple of months before i realised what this number was.

Getting the wording and spelling correct is also one of my "must have right" peev's and to help me in this quest i use "Open Office". This free programm helps me two ways. 1st i write my hub fully in O-O this way the spell checker lets me know straight away of a typo's and 2nd i can edit my hub easly and move the script around to suit the hub. When it is finished i do a split screne, one half with O-O and my story and the other half with HP and the "Start a new Hub" page. Then i just do a drag and drop, finish with a little bit of checking and write a summary then publish.

Using O-O i can start a lot of different hubs at once and save them untill finished.

You've given our newbies a lot of info Victoria lets hope it is used and we have some new interesting hubs to read.

UP/A/I/U

Take care and have a nice day.

LOL Ghaelach

Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Ghaelach--That's a great method! I do something similar with Word. I think I'd have a harder time trying to type something directly into the hub capsules. And it gets spell-checked, too! I usually have several going at once, too. Sometimes I just can't seem to finish one right then, so I move on to another. Looks like you're doing well, Ghaelach. I do hope this helps the newbies. I try to remember information I looked for when I first started at HubPages. (although I still feel kind of like a newbie after 5 months). Thanks for your comments! Keep on hubbing!

randomcreative 4 years ago from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Great tips! When I reached 90 for the first time, I have also stayed above it ever since with scores between 92-95 most of the time. I attribute my high scores to ALL of the factors that you mentioned. It is a daily effort but well worth it. I know that this will be a great resource for others.

tammyswallow 4 years ago from North Carolina

Congratulations Victoria! You are doing something right. My score lingers around 89 and even with one great hub, it doesn't seem to budge. I had a lot of poetry in my file each with a hub score in the 60's.. I am deleting these low scoring hubs, no matter how much I am attached to them and seeing if that makes a difference. You are very gracious to share your secrets with the rest of us. Keep up the fabulous work!

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Thanks, parentsreview and rochelj! I hope the suggestions are helpful.

Vinaya--You're a great hubber. There's no reason you shouldn't hit 100. I probably got a little luck that day, too. I think the scores can be mysterious at times!


Jackie Lynnley profile image

Jackie Lynnley 4 years ago from The Beautiful South

You are a great writer and deserve your 100 so I am in no way against that, but I have given 150% writing here in another name also and I think that if you are not a "hub suck" you might say or if you ever say anything opposing anyone here, you will never get what you deserve. That just had to be said and you can look at James A Watkins to see that is true, if not me. I think that is a little sad that people are allowed to sabotage, and I have had one of my highest ones ever just recently continually attacked and marked down because the man does not believe in Christmas. I have fellow hubbers who did not agree with my religious views attack and probably still are after many months. Most people would have probably given up and ran by now but I won't. I will use hubs to suit me, but I do think all should be warned that you can be the best one here, such as James and not be able to reach a 90. I really think HubPages should knock anyone off for good that keeps voting down a person or hub. One vote I can see but if we get lower scores for this, that and another, why not for sabotaging someone?

Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Jackie--that's awful that people sabotage other writers! Just b/c they have different opinions doesn't mean they should vote your hub down. That's sad. I think you write varied and interesting hubs, and I'm glad that you're not giving up on what you believe in and what you want to say. It seems like I've seen James Watkins' name before, but I'm not sure. I'm going to check out his work. You're right to be upset. People shouldn't be allowed to pick on a particular person over and over.

I do appreciate your comments. Hang in there, Jackie.


homesteadbound profile image

homesteadbound 4 years ago from Texas

Victoria Lynn - How exciting! Congrats on hitting 100! It is my goal too!

But I have also discovered something. You can be too involved. I do not have a day job, per se. And I spent alot of time on the site and with the 30 in 30, in the hub challenge forum. And my score dropped. The more I participated, the more it dropped. After reading further, I found that too much participation can be viewed as spam by the algorithm. Just a note of warning. I am up to 90 today and hope to be able to stay in the 90's.

Once again, congrats - I know it must feel good, and I know you have worked for it and deserve it! Great job!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Thanks, homesteadbound! That's good to know about being "too involved." Who knew? haha. Perhaps my day job will keep me from making that "mistake." There are so many things that are taken into account on here! You're a "100" writer, so I'm sure it will show up one day. I knew it wouldn't last, but it IS a nice surprise when it happens. Good to see you! Thanks for your comments!


Jackie Lynnley profile image

Jackie Lynnley 4 years ago from The Beautiful South

Thanks Victoria for leaving my remark because I do think it is important people know this can happen. It had happened to me long before James but I am hoping hubpages take a look at someone like him and what an asset he is to hubpages to maybe take new steps to prevent this. It certainly is of no benefit to them to allow this. You would be surprised at ones right in your hubs doing this, when you get someone following you and making great comments they go to them and say things about you and even make them afraid to follow you, how about that...again, thanks.

This is a good topic to write about and many hubbers would like an answer. While my score (low 90's) attracts my attention, it doesn't affect me much one way or the other. I just love to write articles that I hope will help others. And you have done that here. Excellent!

You're a great hubber, justateacher! I wouldn't worry about the score. Although it was nice to see the 100, I know that's not everything and that a hubber's score doesn't always reflect the true talent of a hubber. Still, I thought giving tips might be helpful, as it doesn't hurt to do these things. Thanks for the support!

Rosemay50 4 years ago from Hawkes Bay - NewZealand

I saw the snapshot of your 100 and it suited you very well, maybe a bit more sparkly or a bit of of a glow would have matched that smile.

I think Homewardbound is right too much activity can work in reverse. A while ago I took a wekk 8 days off and did nothing but my score still rose 3 points. I usually sit around the 95 mark give or take one or two.

There is also hub=hopping which will add to your activity.

Good luck and I hope you reach that 100 again.


James A Watkins profile image

James A Watkins 4 years ago from Chicago

Thank you for this excellent article. You gave sound advice that is needful. Well done!

My Author Score was between 97 and 100 for two years. One day, I had a bit of a scrum with a member of HubPages Staff who demonetized my longtime best-moneymaking article because of comments a visitor made, which I then erased but to no avail. I awoke the next day with an Author Score of 86 and it has not risen about 90 since (six months).


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Thanks, Rosemay! Yeah, some glow would be nice. Thanks for the comment on the smile! That's sweet. Interesting what homesteadbound says about too much activity being detrimental. Something to think about. Do you think hub-hopping helps more than just reading the hubs of those you follow? I don't have time to read everyone's now, but hopping hubs of strangers...hard to do it all! Great comments, Rosemay! Glad you're staying around!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

James, I don't understand how a hub can be demonitized because of a visitor's comment...? I'm sorry that happened. You seem to be a really good writer, so I hope your score eventually rises back to where it deserves to be. Thanks for reading this hub and for the comments. :-)

Hi Victoria, many thanks for the infor on this. The advice has certainly helped as my business partner and I were only talking about what makes your hub score increase last night.

I have also read that not including a summary in your hub can also effect your hub score, need to verify this, maybe someone here can say if this is true or not.

Thanks again and happy hubbing!

GetRidofAcneSpots--I'm glad this was helpful! Yes, a summary is supposed to help your hub. It's supposed to be helpful in getting more traffic to your hub as the search engine finds the summary. Now, HubPages puts a note next to your hub under your account if you haven't included your summary. So, DO include a summary with every hub. Good luck with everything. Happy hubbing to you, too!

Great work, Victoria Lynn -- congrats on hitting 100! Interestingly, my own score tends to drop with more participation (following new hubbers, leaving comments, and the like).

But I agree with vocalcoach: while the hubber score does attract my attention, I try not to let it affect my writing. Thanks for a very informative hub!

Hi Victoria Lynn,

Thanks for a great Hub. After 5 weeks of writing for hubpages, I notice that hubs about being a hubber seem to get a lot of comments. I think it was good that you pointed out that hubbers need to be patient about their score. There are a lot of factors that go into your hub score, but I do notice that making comments seems to increase my score. You are also right about the quality of the hub. Thanks again and take care. Voted this up and left feedback.

Hello Victoria Lynn, being a new hubwriter has been quite interesting for me. I'm slowly learning through lots of trials & errors. Making lots of comments on different hubs has increased my hubscore tremendously. I appreciate all the tips that you have given so that I can write a more effective hub. Also, I find myself coming up with lots of other titles to write about through researching other hubs. Again, thank you for writing such a wonderful hub. Your suggestions are well taken.


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

hoteltravel--You are absolutely right! There are growing pains and pangs! I read in the Learning Center, forums, other hubs for months before I had the courage to publish my first hub. There is so much to learn. If my hub here can simplify some things to focus on, I'm glad for that, because I know how I felt and still do feel sometimes. There's so much to learn, and we just need to keep writing and learn as we go. It's all worth it! Good luck with your writing and adventure on HubPages.

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

arusho--It's good to know that other hubbers are doing these things, too. I think the money just takes a while. I've made above a dollar a couple of days, but it's usually in the 20 or 30 cent range, and sometimes in the teens. We'll just keep on hubbing, huh? Thanks for the comments!

Dear Victoria,

Congratulations on fabulous score of 100!

It's beautiful that you are reaching out to help new people already. This community is awesome that way.

This has been helpful for me. While happy, I would love to get a smidge past my highest of '95' (usually 90-94).

You are now the second person who has spoken of the value of answering questions, which I have not yet made the time to check out. This article is now my incentive.

Voted UP & UABI- enjoy your day, mar.

Vicki, this is great! Congratulations on your 100! Being on HubPages has been a learning experience and continues to be. I love the interaction with other hubbers, and feel it is so important to visit other pages. I think your advice is grand!! Thanks for writing the hub! Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting!

Good advice, there is so much to learn on HP and when you are working as well the time you spend here is sometimes limited and some days I find that I can be on here for hours and not realize it. Yesterday I was on for a few hours tweaking and learning and my score actually went down. :(

Sinea Pies 4 years ago from Northeastern United States

Victoria, you described me in this hub. I've been hovering at about 80-86 and it is beyond me what to do to raise it. At first I thought I wasn't posting often enough. I write 1-2 times per week. Then I thought maybe I needed to comment more. I do the proofing and re-proofing often so most (all?) of my hubs are grammatically sound and what I believe to be well-written. Perhaps a few of the oldest ones need some more tending...which I happily do. Whatever. Thanks for trying to help us all figure this out! :)

DanielNeff 4 years ago from Asheville, NC

I am pretty new to this, but my observation in regards to my hub score is twofold.

I think you have to stay consistently involved: writing quality hubs, commenting on hubs, asking questions, answering questions.

As far as I can tell, the score lags by a day or so, so for you other newbies, when your score climbs into the mid 80s, don't slow down, keep up the pace.

Good advice. As a newbie (been a member a while, but just started writing hubs recently), I followed too many people, thinking I was being encouraging. It dropped my score to a ONE! Yikes. However, people in the forums helped me and it is back on the rise. It's good to have some additional tips to work with.

My score fluctuates between 87 - 91. I'm focusing on consistently creating well written, high quality hubs that provide useful information. I have some way to go on this, but I will definitely get there. But I must do better on the community participation.

Btw, congrats on the Hottest Hub ranking!

This hub was inspiring and awesome. You're really promoting the dream by keeping your score high. You prove consistently integral as a contributor to your fanbase.

There's something about affiliate marketing that reconciles the individual with the rising tides of a changing economy. Affiliate marketing - yet another wonderful venue which agrees with corporate America but still graces us simple folks with a real chance at directing the determined affluences of our unique, individual perspectives.

Keep reading, keep ingesting and chewing up new knowledge; keep feeding your intellect and continue sharing. You'll never cease to grow if you continue with these initiatives.

I hit 100 several times a quite a while back. Then HP said we could no longer link to our own hubs if they weren't related. The more I instituted HP's new policies, the more my traffic and score declined. I no longer write on HP as a result. It just isn't worth my time anymore.

I'm glad it's working for you. Somebody needs to benefit from the changes. Congratulations and good luck. You are a good writer and deserve to be read.

Yes, sholland, it IS a great learning experience, both the writing and reading others' hubs. The interaction w/other writers is awesome. Thanks for the compliments and votes! :-)

creativebutterfly--It is so easy to lose hours on hubpages, isn't it? Amazing! I bet the time you spent twearking your hubs will pay off even though your score went down initially. We can't explain those things, but I'm sure your hard work will pay off. Thanks for reading and commenting!

Yes, Hendrika, try asking questions. It's another way to get involved and improve your score. You might think about soemthing you're interested in, ask a question about it to get other views, and then write a hub about it. It's a way to get ideas on what to write about.


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

sinea--Have you gotten involved in asking and answering questions? and the forums? That might help. I would just keep doing what you're doing, and I bet it pays off. Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks, hillymillydee! That's nice of you to say. And I love your name!

LoriSoard--Yes, I've heard that following too many people just for the sake of following isn't a good idea. We should follow people whose writing we like and actually read their stuff from time to time. I'm glad these tips help. The forums are a great source, too. Thanks for commenting!

Thanks Victoria...I learned something. I don't think I've ever asked a question, and I've only answered a few. Most of my time here is spent reading hubs, but now I'll try to make time for the questions. There are so many wonderful writers here, and yes I agree, the scores don't nearly seem high enough for some. I think the whole idea of a high score is to get a better placement on the Google searches, so it dosen't make much sense that HubPages would allow the scores to be low, if not warranted. Maybe I'll ask. Thanks again and congratulations!

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

What a great hub I've stumbled upon here and with the hubpage itself having a score of 100, and your personal hubscore being 96, you clearly know what you're talking about :).

I find that the more active on the site I am with commenting, asking and answering questions, creating hubs and so on, the higher my score. When I'm away from the site for a few days typically my hubber score drops somewhat. This stands to reason I suppose, and as such I intend to create more hubs this year. It's my New Year's Resolution. Let's hope I'm better at sticking with it than I usually am.

Interesting hub, Victoria. But it's funny to see folks suggesting the many things I do not do as being essential to achieving a 100 score here. I usually see the dollar score every few days or so and don't do anything special--especially backlinking--to help my score. Truth is, no one knows what is required. Sorry! :)

Randy,I'm sure you do things that make your hubs successsful, whether it's quality writing, being involved, or whatever. I think you're right in that we can't know all the factors that go into good scores, but we DO know some of the things that are required for a good score. I don't do a lot of backlinking either; that's something I haven't spent enough time on yet. We have to find what works and keep at it. It looks like both of us have done that. Thanks for reading and commenting!

Ruchi--I've found that sometimes just going back and revising a hub, even changing the title, or adding subcapsules, will help to raise the score. Good luck!

It all sounds simple enough, but if that were the case, everyone would be doing it. I like the realistic approach you took to the tips and I know I can follow those to help my score reach 100 (there's just something about seeing those high scores:) Now that I believe I have a sufficient understanding of HubPages, I definitely know the value in quality content and using SEO and backlinks. I'm also ashamed to say I recently just accidentally figured out how to backlink and went back to all the necessary hubs I wrote to do so.

P.S. I'm a grammar perfectionist as well

I agree with you in that staying involved with other Hubbers is really important. If you don't participate it is almost impossible to get followers. I have stayed above 90 for a few months as well and I think winning 2 Hub of the Day nominations has helped stabilize my score; it doesn't really go down now, even if I go on vacations for a while.

On the other hand, I haven't been too focused in my general score but I think a high Hubber score helps you get credibility with other hubbers, what do you think having I high Hubber score is good for?


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Yeah, thecoffeewrite, not really simple. It takes time especially to stay involved. But I find it very rewarding. I think backlinking is confusing, and I'm still learning on that one! Thanks for the comments!

Yes, nity..., attracting the search engines is key.

It moves you up under the hubber descriptions for other hubbers to look at, and it probably does get more attention from some hubbers who look at the scores. I don't know if it matters as far as ranking higher in searches or anything else. But, overall, it can't hurt. Thanks for the comments!

Congratulations on your 100! Any hub like this is a help to newcomers. I have been here a few months and enjoy reading and commenting on good hubs. If I don't consider the hub worthwhile, I don't leave a comment because someone else may find it valuable. I haven't published anything yet because I haven't gotten all the technicalities down pat. It seems to take hubs like this to explain between the lines. Thanks.

Well, with all these comments, you must be doing something right! Good job. I just joined today and my score is 54 or so. I stumbled upon your page after searching "score" from the HUB site. Also, thank you for your attention to detail; proper grammar might not be a lost art after all. I too, become mortified at overlooked writing mistakes. Lol...slightly petty, I'm sure. :)

Victoria, not only has your hub helped me tremendously but many of the comments contain either additional help or encouragement (especially from your replies), both of which we Happy Hubbers all need. I think I will go write about something now, with all this renewed knowledge and encouragement. It's something sad that I've put off, but now I think is the perfect time for getting those feelings out. Thank you so much for writing this!

Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

jaylucas--I think a starting score of 54 is great. I think mine was about 28 or so when I first started, and I looked every day for it to rise a bit. :-) I don't think being mortified over bad grammar is petty. I don't think proper grammar is a lost art to many. I think your hubs will do better and get more respect if correct grammar is used. I'm a stickler, pretty much. haha Thanks for the great comments.

Thank You Victoria Lynn,

Just a bit mystified when it comes to the elusive Hub score and why it can fluctuate so much in a single day. For many months my score has stabilized in the mid 80's except for today when it dropped just below that mark. Your article was encouraging and reasonable, one hub per week is a good goal to set. I also agree to succeed in this community of very talented writers you have to be social and interact, this is key. Thanks again for the inspiration to move forward and continue towards that magic number of 100. Congratulations on a perfect Hub.

Reaching a 100 score with a hub is not easy to do! I think you made an excellent point when you advised people to interact with the Hub Pages community. Writing a great hub is not enough to earn a high score. You need to get involved. Comment on other people's hubs, ask questions, and vote for the hubs you like. This is one of the keys to reaching a high score. Thanks for the tips.

Even when I am not writing, I make an effort to read other hubs, leave comments, and get involved in questions. Although not nearly as much as I would like. I am also always amazed at which of my hubs get constant attention. Interesting!

So, thanks again for the informative hub, and keep hubbing!

Wow! Victoria this hub was fantastic and you've gotten rave reviews and that's so wonderful! Congratulations lady you nailed this one! I must admit I've only gotten as high as 92 and my score continues to fluctuate downward!:( I think I've written some very good hubs too! They are short and to the point. I don't believe in writing long lengthy articles unless I'm writing a story, mystery stories is what I love. I try to stay active posting hubs, answering questions as well as asking them. I've even gone back into older hubs to edit and modify to make them better and most of the time my score just stays the same but you know its funny, I was absent from hubpages for nearly 4 1/2 mos with no activity until shortly after one day I logged in and that's when I had a score of 92! It was interesting and recently I been very active and today my score 86 which I find interesting too! You've posted some great info here with some tips that I've haven't tried but will and we will see. Keep doing your thing girl! I look forward to reading more and stop by my hubpage sometime as well!

Thanks Victoria! I've been here for 3 weeks and my score is still only 70 so I'm doing everything I can to try to get it up. I've written nearly 10 articles across a range of topics but my score is stagnating, or so it feels! Is it really true that all I should keep doing is writing; commenting on other hubs and voting up other articles? I read that it helps to link to other hubs in your own articles. DO you have an opinion about that? Cheers.


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

You're welcome,Veronica!

And, YES, TrahnTheMan, I do have an opinion on linking to other of your hubs. Do it! Every time I write a hub, I think about what other topics I have that it relates to, so I'll link those together. Hubs that weren't getting much traffic come back to life! I've noticed that with mine. Keep writing hubs and commenting on others. Ask and answer questions now and then. And I bet your score will come up. I don't remember how long it took for my score to come up in the first few weeks or months but it did steadily rise. Just keep doing the right things, and I feel that it will happen! Good luck! Cheers!

Nice Hub, very informative. I am only a newbie but I do not know if adding various content increases the score? i.e. try to add a photo a video some links and a few promoter sales to each Hub. Ive done that in my first few and my score seems to be on the up. I think also getting likes from site like Facebook helps and Pinterest is a great new tool for anyone who has not used it.

Many thanks

I actually just read your Hub on the "5 Things you Should Know...." and before I left a comment I saw this link so read this as well! Very well done and I look forward to not only reading more of your Hubs but also writing more of mine!

Voted up!

Constant working with conviction and confidence paves the way to achieve the goal. Struggle never goes waste and at the appointed time the results come out. But remember there is constant checking every moment and a moments slip brings downfall as well. Many Many factory count in bringing the top success an a human is to err. There should be no losing of heart and constant mending of the error in whatever area it may be is the key to success. Many fellow Hubbers have got a hundred but the special feature in your getting is a long list of congratulations from all of us. The reason is that you have left nothing unknown for the hub writers and encouraged them to try again and again. By doing so you have not lost anything; rather you have gained many appreciations. This is an additional tip.

May God bless all every where.

jamila sahar 4 years ago

greetings, many thanks for this great informative hub! i too am new to this site, and still learning, i actually learned more from your hub than the help pages. as i was still new and a little bewildered to everything ( in addition to not being the most technically savvy :-/ i inadvertantly attempted to change the title of my first hub. next thing i know the hub was unpublished as i mistakenly made a duplicate, with the hub pages police writing this material was copied from another source. so i tried to go back and take off the other hub with the changed first title and now that one was unpublished as well saying it is a duplicate. i tried to write an email to the help pages, but to no avail, as they just kept sending what is obviously an automated email saying do not copy other work, etc. this caused a good deal of embarassment with my students as i sent them the link to read my hub, then at the lesson i was informed by them the hub was unpublished. so, i learned a great deal from your hub and now feel motivated to continue, as i was thinking of deleting my account. thanks for the info and motivation ! ( any advice re: above situation will be greatly appreciated)

Phoebe Pike 4 years ago

This is a great hub, it's useful and a general, but awesome, way to keep your score in the 90's. I hit 100 a few times, but to be honest, I have no secret behind it. I comment on hubs, answer questions and sometimes write in forums, but only when it peaks my interest. I am just fortunate some find my work worth reading.

Great information, thanks! As a fairly new hubber I'm still trying to get a feel for this. I sit around the 80's as well but I'm cool with that until something catches the attention of others. It's nice to see some high level commenters help comment on stuff to help us out as well.

If you get a chance, can you please take a look at one of my hubs (I have only 3)? Can you give me your honest opinion about my writing? :) and thank you again for your tips! :)

Vicki...This hub is an invaluable treasure to me! Sunshine sent me the link because I am one of the hubbers in your hub who gets a bit frustrated as well as confused in terms of understanding the fluctuating scores. I can honestly say that I feel I consistently do what you have suggested (except for the "social networks") I feel much better and more enlightened thanks to you sharing with us. My score has constantly remained in the 90's since it first got there, so I guess I'm OK after all!! My range has been 90 to 97 & of course, everything in between! You're an Angel. Up & ++

Aw, effer, how sweet of you to say all that. And how sweet of our Miss Sunshine to send you the link. You must thank her for me! It sounds like you're doing all the right things. You write great stuff, and your score in the 90's does reflect it, so why do you need to read my hub? haha. I'm flattered that you did. So glad you came by!

I read your stuff and all the others I read, because I think the authors are great and write wonderfully interesting hubs. I firmly believe Vickie, as soon as we think we know all we need to know and stop "learning," we've done ourselves an unforgiveable injustice.

You know Sunshine.....The Hubpages PIMP of all pimps! She always heads me in the best directions.


Jlbowden profile image

Jlbowden 4 years ago from Long Island, New York

Hello Victoria:

Well I have to admit that you must be doing something right, because upon reading this hub, it has a score of 99. And you know the individual hubscore thing, has baffled me as well. Sometimes I comment a lot during one week, or a few days. And then it may be a good week, or more before I make any comments, or participate in the forums. And as with yourself. My score has always been in the 90's and even has been at 100 on more then one occasion. It's definitely a mystery, that could drive us all to sheer madness if we dwell on it too long. I believe that you hit the nail on the head when you mentioned writing high quality content and/or hubs. As writers on this platform, I believe we owe that to ourselves and particularly the audience who reads our articles. I also am guilty of writing my articles so quickly and not giving them a second look,or even three to search for improper grammar or typos. This is important and also most likely a reflection of our hubber score. The main thing going forward for me however, is to write more articles, why? because like yourself and every other individual on hubpages, we all love the written word. Otherwise we wouldn't be here in the first place. Loved your hub-voted it up and thought it to be awesome as well. Good job!

Jim

Too many people try to place themselves above others, and it is those who are selfless that true deserve the notoriety in my opinion. Again, thank you for the information.

These are all useful points that are important to follow to keep one's score high. I can attest to that.

Although, I don't know the actual algorithm that's used or what actually affects our score, I do agree with you that being active in the HP community in every way, is the most important. And like you said, it is the best way to bring more traffic as well.

I see a lot of newbies who think they can get traffic by following a bunch of people. They don't realize that if they don't actually read the Hubs of those they follow, then their score will fall like a rock. The fact that you make it a point to read a few Hubs a day is one thing that goes a long way to a high score. And it's a win-win both ways.

Great info! I have to admit that I haven't been commenting as much as I did when I first joined the site. I'm working on it though! Good luck on reaching 100 again. If I ever made it to 100, I'd be tickled pink!

Great comments, Glenn. As far as following people, I can't keep up with everything that write, but reading a few hubs a day and purposely visiting those writers I haven't read in a while seems to help, too. There's so much knowledge and talent being shared on HP; I do wish I could read as much as I wanted! Thanks for commenting, Glenn!

I think your Hub score is very high because of the engagement you do in your hub. Your interaction with the commenter makes it attracted to more traffic. Plus, I think the topic itself...so, it's more of a combination with that.

By the way, if you don't mind... with such high Hub score, how much traffic you're receiving daily? I remember someone in the questions section, who was asking how much a Hubber earns?

Nice tips... specially the SEO thing, I bet a lot of people here don't know about it.

Congrats! I've noticed a few of your hubs consistently up in the 99 and 100 range. You are doing great! I agree with the points you addressed in your hub, and I'm glad you mentioned them, it reassures me and I think I am doing something right!! :-) Voted up!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Thanks, networmed. I appreciate your observations. That is very helpful. I have 90 some hubs and get over 500 views a day, total. That number has been growing. Some do great and some get very little traffic. But their individual scores are okay, so I keep them, trying to improve and market them from time to time. This hub does well and sometimes gets 100 views or more per day. Not always, though. Everything seems to be growing with time and effort!

Thanks for sharing your knowledge Victoria. I have to confess that I clicked on your link because you have the same name as me, only I have one less 'n' in my Lyn :) I'm new to this and am learning the ropes but I like your writing style and I don't think you sound arrogant at all. All the best, Victoria Lyn

Thanks for sharing...it is interesting to read your insights...my score fluctuates between 86 and 92. I go over and over my hubs and review and reread and like you am mortified when I find an error which I do find. I will keep plugging away as I really enjoy writing on hubpages.

Can non-seo person do seo? my field is finance and commerce can i do this? how much time i should have for all such seo and making backlinks from hubs?

Victoria, my hubber score reached 99 one day this week and I yelped. I remember when I told myself I was going to take a picture of it if it ever reached that high and, of course, I forgot. I have revisited your hub and can reiterate that based on my own experience now that I have stayed in the 90s because of the desire to write good quality content and being very active in the site. There is a lot of value in having followers, not having sloppy hubs for the sake of having a hub (that's not the way to go at all), reading content and leaving meaningful comments. So, I'm glad your hub is still being reviewed and circulated. Happy St. Paddy's Day, Happy Spring!!

Victoria, where do you find the time to write 65 hubs? LOL. That's amazing.


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Ustad--SEO is search engine optimization. Backlinks and such. I'm still learning. Linking to other hubs, leaving links on other sites. Read some hubs about SEO. There are several out there. That should help. Good luck!


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Another useful hub. I agree it's important to stay active on here to maintain a high score. If you're inactive for a week, it drops a bit. What happens if you don't log in for a whole month though?

weezyschannel 4 years ago from Central USA

Thanks for the hub. I keep going up and down. Most hubs hover in the 70-75. Have a few that are 78 and up. I write the best I can and I write things that I have lived through or know about and that's all I can do
