For the first time, I witnessed my overall rating as a Hub Writer hit the 100 mark.
Looks good on you, too. Better take a picture or screen shot, though, it will disappear in a few hours or a day.
Fun, isn't it?
Doesn't it feel amazing? Wilderness is right, though-a screen shot is forever...
There's also a 'Dollar Hubber' thread-do put up your shot there, and enjoy your part in HP history!
Congratulations! Missed seeing the 100 mark, but it will most likely appear again on you soon.
Almost forgot-here's the link to the thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/52080#top.
There use to be a Hubbers link that lead us to a page feed here on hubpages, that we could navigate from to locate hubbers, based on hubber score ranking, from 100-0 and in that specific order.
I wish they never terminated such a page, because it was my motivation to increase such a score, if there actually is a method to do so, which I'm beginning to lose sight of most recently.
This is not to say that I'm not motivated to write for hubpages, no way Jose, I been over motivated to do so, I would like to say Congratulations bro for achieving something that is rare on this writers network.
It took little ole me over 10 months of super intense hubtivity, and I think my web stats here was the reason why I could never breach such a algorithmic factored in score, but as you've manage to have done here, it will come again and again after this moment, as long as you remain motivated to write, and make communicative efforts for sure.
Awesome! Stuff, and I wish you much more success to come, Good Luck! Eccogins
Thank you CloudExplorer. I appreciate your support and encouragment.
Why would you need the link to that page in order to be motivated? There are multiple 100s, 99s, 98s, etc at any given time. The overall ranking scenario and how it works is still the same.
To no avail I never made it there to such a page where all the top hubbers appeared, and when I say top, I mean I even seen your profile there most of the time, and so I regarded your hubs as the best, and many other hubbers back then as by far the folks who had the best hubs I had the pleasure to read.
Now ever since its been gone, I don't see any true benefit from acquiring such a higher score, besides it looking cool as a accolade, and other rating factors, that psychologically may have adverse affects on certain users who care so much to see their own scores up so high.
I do know that we are allowed to have exclusive hubs published, once we attain the level of 90 or above in hubber score if I am correct, but even then just because we get to challenge ourselves at getting a potential highly sought after hub title, doesn't mean it will improve our chances here as a hub writer to publish higher quality works, thus such a feature is irrelevant if anyone continues to publish poor quality work.
I thought the true purpose of the hubber score was to rank us amongst all of our peers in the hubpages writers network, and for those to receive the benefits for their great digital works, but I may be wrong, I have no idea what it is for today.
Thanks for the inquiry though, if my logic's isn't correct, well please feel free to enlighten me Relache.
Your logic is your logic. It's not a matter of right or wrong. You are perfectly entitled to your opinion and interpretation of your situation.
Speaking from my own point of view, as someone who wrote on this site before that list ever existed and who continues to be here after the link to it had been taken down, I find that what motivates me is pretty much the opposite of the purely-internal indicators. I look at stats from outside sources, and I get most of my content building advice there too. When I go to check out the competition, I don't look at other Hubs, I look at other websites. That's just what's seemed to work best for me.
You have a score of 100. There really isn't anywhere for you to look for competition asides from OUTSIDE Hubpages, as you clearly are the bees knees of success.
It is those of us with lower scores that feel the need to compete with YOU (and others at 100). We wonder why our scores are lower, and are ever trying to improve our work and look to those with high score to see what they are doing to be so successful.
More often than not my score is below 100. Having a score of 100 is transitory, and I have no idea why I happen to have it today anymore than anyone else who might be seeing that same number on their profile. HubScores don't mean anything to Google or Yahoo or any of the other search engines. Scores don't guarantee you traffic or earnings. And those are the two things I care about, which is why I concern myself primarily with outside metrics.
I understand this feeling. I too wanted to see myself on the first page, and looked at the articles on the first page as examples to look up to and try to emulate. But there are other ways to achieve the same goals, so it isn't a terrible loss.
Yes indeed you are right Millionaire Tips, I have chosen to write stellar hubs, or shall I say try to learn how to write them, I have no clue if any of my hubs are to ever be considered for anything other then that of a hub to be viewed (do any of us know ahead of time), there really is no bar or measure here on hubpages I don't believe, besides them darn hubber scores we see floating around all the time. I notice that to get the hub of the day, you need to create some sort of crafty hub, which my arts and crafts skills are minimal, I'm a techy type, and that's where I enjoy to excel best at times.
So I may never see myself anywhere on the top of anything here, unless something miraculous occurs (Like I learn a new hobby or something in real life changes, like buying a new car and learning how to fix it or something), because its all about top quality work, but as for the Hub of the day is concerned, well that's untouchable for me as of now, unless they change the programs requirements, and I don't see such a thing happening.
Maybe none of my articles are worthy of such infamy, but oh well its worth a shot to keep on trying right! Basically I need motivation to keep writing so intensely, and as of now the only other motivation I have is to earn pay out! I guess. So I shall right with such a fury as I've ever done before, and won't be looking back for nothing.
Thanks for the cool comment, both your and Relache are truly awesome writers here, and I am honored to have received messages by you both.
Congratulations! That is an incredible achievement, keep up the fantastic work!

Congratulations! Its a great achievement but it never stays for long sadly, I still don't quite get the rating as it seems to bounce around randomly!
Well, at this point it doesn't pay that much, but only because I have been inconsistent in my writing and only have 190 active articles. I was busy finishing a degree program and stopped writing for awhile. This past week I discovered HubPages new exclusive title suggestions which has helped kick start my writing back up again. Last spring, I was up to between 1000 to 1500 page views a day which translated into about $120 per month. In the summer, I did not write much and my views dropped to less than 300 per day and my pay dropped to around $50 per month. So the key is to get more exposure through more articles and page views. I think I need more than 1000 articles to make this more than a fascination or hobby.
Because I use to locate all the best scoring hubbers from there, and met so many of the coolest folks, now its so difficult to locate the most active hubbers besides the friends I've made and know very well.
That hubbers page also made me think that if my profile ever landed onto such a page on hubpages (With tremendous hubtivity & hubbing efforts), as my higher hubber score rose up and up, It appeared as if it would help me to eventually gain a huge boost in overall web traffic from within hubpages to my hubpages profile, due to the fact that people were more likely to locate the top hubbers there once viewed, and it felt like it was a prestigious place to be located from such as being found on the hubpages hub of the day location, or on the homepage when not logged onto hubpages. I also used that page to find the lowest scoring hubbers, where I helped them out from time to time, when I wasn't writing and all. (By clicking the lower scale numbers option)
This was a huge loss of motivation for me on hubpages, mainly because I was a highly active hubber upon joining the network here, and all the way up until all the new changes began, and such a page had vanished. I was completely baffled, I had even asked questions all about it in the Q&A, and nothing had surfaced, so I gave up on worrying and kept on moving, but my hubtivity suffered the most I do believe, because it was the very reason why I worked super hard here as a community member to think I would become a star hubber some day.
If you want active Hubbers, check the Forums/Answers. I only put out a Hub every couple of weeks or so (busy at work and such) but I am by all means an 'active hubber' because I edit and update Hubs quite frequently, and also stay active in the community.
Have watched my hub score drop from 90, to 89, to 88 in the past 30 minutes. Wondering what I could have done. HMM.
I will take your advice for sure Relache, thanks for sharing such awesome wisdom with us all, cool beans.
I think all that needs to be said is, "Congratulations"!
