Hi ya'll. I'm a newbie and am wondering what hub scores ranging from 47 to 56 mean? What is a "good" hub score and how does that impact things?
Thanks so much!!!
I consider a "good" Hubber Score (the score next to someone's profile) to be something above 80, preferably above 90. It takes a while to get there though!
More on HubScore and Hubber Score can be found here:
Hubber score and hubscore are not the same thing, correct? Should I be concerned if all of my individual hubscores are in the 70s?
I value my hubs based on the amount of search traffic they receive. Some of my better performers as far as google traffic are concerned are some with the lower hub score.
For most people it takes some time to get there. I signed up three days ago and now have a hubber score of 91. The secret is writing a lot of hubs and posting in forum.
I'm not an expert because I've only written a few hubs so far, but I sort of like to think of the rating system like grades in high school... 70 is passing, 80 is good, 90 is great and 100 excellent. But with hubs, when you first publish one I believe the startin score is 50, it takes a while for it to be approved (especially if you keep editing it after you've posted it), and it might take a bit for it to hit 70 or better.
The duration to reach 90 or above can vary. I reached 95 in the first one and a half month of my joining... It is now at 90 and will keep varying. Trick is to stay focused on the writing and try to get search traffic....
I see that you indeed have interesting hubs... So that's the way to go... Use the Learning Center and tips on getting search traffic and that should help a lot.
Lol. My hub score is 16. The other day it was 19. I have no clue why I'm failing so miserably but it's definitely not motivating! Can you tell I'm a perfectionist? Oh well. Onward and forward! ;-) At this rate I'll be here 10 years with 10K hubs before I have a 50 score. ;-)
I'm also very new to this like you but as the others say just keep writing about content you're passionate about and engage with the community and it will rise sure enough. More of a marathon than a sprint really and many of the people and friendly advisors have been here for a while which goes to show the accepting and bubbling community Hubpages seems to have, at least from what I've seen so far in my short 3 weeks or so.
Best of luck!
Check this forum question out... This was another hubber who had the same problem as you and if you have to go by what has happened, his score is at 89 from 0 in just 12 days... Take a look...

I hope this gives you a perspective.... Also, I had come across some forum queries on result of following too many people and its effect on the hub score... The post said that following too many people will lead to the hubber score to drop... I am not too certain about that.. So, you can take this point with a pinch of salt... But the first point should give you some heart... Happy writing!!
I asked the same question anxiously when I was a newbie like you (I am still a newbie). But, since then my score has been steadily rising Back then it was 66 and now it stands on 83. Although I am still figuring out how hub score system works, I guess it depends on quality content and interaction on forums and Q&A sections.
I am new to HubPages, just over two weeks, but I am please that both my hubber and hub scores are increasing steadily. I intend to continue to develop hubs in areas of my expertise, and also areas of which I am passionate about.
CRe8tiVeLiFe, to my mind a good score would be 75 and above. I think the trick is to keep writing quality content and be consistent. Visit your hubs regularly and continue participating in the hub community.
Writing a quality article will help you solve this issue.
Reading other hubs and leaving them comment will somehow help you increase the number of your hubber score too. My hubber score started '6'.
My first 3 hubs are near 80 if not over. Perhaps more detail/content and pictures would help you boost your score!
I wouldn't worry about it. Your hub score is going to go up and down, sometimes it won't seem like there's rhyme or reason. When I write a brand-new article, my hub score drops down to about 45, but given a few days, more article, typing to others on Hubpages, and it goes back up in the 70s. I'm sure if I stopped writing for a second, it would go even higher. lol
My advice, don't worry about it. Not a big deal. If you want to bring it up, keep writing, and keep participating on Hubpages.
just wanted to join in...been wondering about the hub score myself...good insight from the replies...thanks

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is...

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...

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...
