    I noticed an appreciable number of hubbers with 100% hub score,please can you share some of the steps you took to achieve this greatness? Congrats to you all!

      I've seen my author score hit 100 a few times.  The steps aren't anything secret and if you think they are, you're only fooling yourself.

      Create Hubs.
      Fill them with original, useful and interesting content.
      Make sure your tags are really relevant and focused to the topic of the hub. (this often means less tags and not more)
      Do a touch of hub promotion to help get traffic.
      Don't spend lots of time sweating your Hubscore.
      Repeat all those steps.  Again and again.

      When I hit 100, it's a pleasant surprise, but nothing that's under my control.

    Hi Acco how is it hanging well I made 99, I am sure it may have got to 100, I never actually saw it but maybe I was sleeping at the time and missed it, these things are possible. x0x

    At the time of writing, mine is 100, but no-one stays there for ever because there's an intentional randomness in the algorithm, to keep the 'charts' interesting.

    I don't have 'the' answer, and am not among the financially successful hubbers because for me it's a writing outlet, not a business venture.

    So what do I do? Mostly I aim to write original and interesting (to some!) content, typically 1200 to 1500 words per article. I try to write well, because that's the whole point of the exercise. I usually include 2 to 6 photographs, preferably taken myself, but this isn't always possible. I don't use videos at all. They're just not my thing. I'd love to use audio capsules, but Hubpages don't support them (hint!). I'm fairly careful with categories and groups. I try to answer all comments promptly and respectfully as people have taken the trouble to write them.

    Apart from hubs, I'm usually involved in one or two forum threads which may or may not be helping too, but it's fun.

    Was that any help?

    I have no idea how it happens! In one day I can reach 99 or 100 and before the day is over drop to 94, like yesterday! I understand it has to do with how active one is overall - participating in forums, creating new hubs, gaining friends, being friends, commenting, etc. But after that I think they must spin a wheel every hour or something, LOL! Just kidding about the wheel - maybe.

    I do all you said Paraglider but only ever go up as far as 99, then I drop.  The more I comment, the more I drop

      blondepoetposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      It is so weird I don't understand it either, mine has been dropping and dropping and my last hub was one of my best ones, so I have given up lol

    The hubscore is up and down like a whores drawers. Honest. Ignore it. Pay it no mind. Maybe it will sulk and whack you to 100 to grab your attention.

    I've had it a few times but I honestly don't know why or how. And I don't bother worrying about it either.

    See - like with Cindy - sometimes I'm dead active. It drops. Other times I'm equally as active - it shoots to the top. That's a combination of forum posting, comments and rating, either publishing a new hub or tweeking a published one.

    Then - there's the time when I do absolutley bugger all. I wasn't on a couple of weeks ago for over 48 hours. Again, 100.

    Hubscore = weird.

    NB - I also think the hubteam play hubpoker. And we're the chips lol

    I get to 100 quite a lot, then it falls again. 100 yesterday, 95 today. It just happens.

    Rik Ravadoposted 7 years ago

    I think there is a significant random element. I drift from around 93 to 100.  No disrepect to frogsdropping but if a reptile's waste products can make 100 then it can't be that much of an achievement!

      I'm rarely - if ever offended. But that was a tad uncalled for Rik. Do get over yourself.

          You are right sunforged - Thats another apology needed.

          Frogsdropping: sorry I called you a reptile - no offence intended (its probably a bit like calling a Scotsman English).

  9. Rik Ravado profile image93
    Rik Ravadoposted 7 years ago

    frogdropping - so sorry I offended you.  I forgot for a moment that although your blood may be cold you probably have a warm heart and real feelings.  Forgive me for my insensitivity.  You are clearly the most successful reptile on HubPages and I for one want to live in a world where frogs have the same opportunities as the rest of us smile

    Rik - I wasn't offended. Like I said - it seemed a bit below the belt. Thankyou for returning and your apology smile

    My score was 100 most of the day today, but has fallen to 98 at the time I'm writing this.  I used to stay around 95-98, never quite seeing 99 or 100.  It's really only been in the last month that I've finally seen 100 for the first time.  Now, I see it almost once a day.  I still flunctuate like everyone else.

    What do I contribute it to?  I don't know.  I do have 3 times the daily page views now than I did two months ago.  But, I attribute that to going from 65 hubs to just over 100 in the hub challenge.

    My advice:  Write, write, write good original material
                Participate in the forums
                Leave comments for others
                Reply promptly to comments left on your hub
                Above all else...have FUN and be NICE!

    I've had 100, but as I'm writing this it's down to 95 (kind of my new "low").  I'd say almost the same things KCC said (except that I didn't participate in the Hub challenge).   I don't really think I'm doing anything different than I was when I was getting - like - the 91 to 96 range.  I've had some time off recently, and I've participated in the forums as a result of it.  Hitting the 100 is pretty recent for me, so maybe it's that.

    My last one was my only hub to hit the 100 and I think it was because of.

    1.Topic must be something that helps the reader.
    2.Members joining in on the comments with help as well.
    3.Deff replying and helping every reply.
    4.I also think if the Hub makes money on Adsense then it also climbs in Hubscore, just my theory.
    5. I think too much Forum Activity reduces all scores, again just my theory.
    6. 15 really good related Tags.

    I haven't reached 100 yet but I am at 94 today (my highest so far, yeh for me wink ) But reading this knowledge exchange, I am running back to my hubs to make some changes...thanks for the ideas.

    1. Get active, everywhere. In your Hubs, their Hubs, and in the forums.
    2. Participate in "Answers"
    3. Get good at Search Engine Optimization, I.E., tagging.
    4. Go to various places on the 'net, and spread your work. The more click throughs outside of any particular domain, the higher the Hub score.
    5. Keep a small number of fans to fans--it's a circle that will increase slowly, but most definitely, especially when you communicate with them.
    6. Reply to your replies on Hubs, be it yours or others.

    Keep in mind, this is all of my observations--which are admittedly not an authority, but these are things that have kept my score and others high.

    This is all great advice. I think I'm on the right track. My hubs float between 50 and 89 as I write and my personal hubscore is 94. The highest that's been is 97. Would love to see it touch 100 , who wouldn't?

    1. lxxy profile image61

      I'm sure you will smile

      I think tenure is also a big part of it, as well as number of Hubs published. Though...FD kinda blows that line of thinking out of the water.

      But this is a maze with many exits.

    2patriciasposted 7 years ago

    We have yet to hit 100 - our maximum to date is 97 overall.  Somedays we have individual hubs over 90, but these go up and down.
    Perhaps the answer is steady activity on all fronts - new hubs, good hubs, receiving comments, giving comments and moderate participation in forums.
    Oh - and having your stars in line with the moon on a Tuesday.

    I have yet to hit 100 myself.  The best source to understand hubpages is prolly the hubpages itself.  Their faq is pretty clear.  I'd read this carefully:

    It says here:

    My guess is that the participation in the forums is mainly so people see what you say and want to check you out, so it's not really the activity itself that increases your hubscore - only the traffic you get out of it.

    The main focus appears to be a good balance of quality and quantity - hubs, traffic, and thumbs up.  For example, a good balance of quality and quantity in terms of the hub itself: The quantity of the hub (how many word count, paragraphs, etc) and the quality of the hub content (unique, well-formed, in depth, etc).

    That's my impression from all this, anyway. As an aside, I was fascinated to learn about Author's Status, which hubscore has great relevance upon.  In my first week of my first two hubs immediately after signing up, I received a score between 74-80.  According to the chart, in having fewer than 19 hubs, that meant I was average to prodigy. yikes  But then again, I also noticed that there are many that are prodigies. smile  It's just interesting how they compute that.

    Meh, I really need to write something else.  This is an interesting thread, btw. smile

    And I've done little or nothing around hubpages again due to having to juggle far too many balls at the moment and mine's risen once again. Seriously - it's weird smile

    *wanders off. It's juggling. Has to be*

    As I posted elsewhere, there's no point in stressing about HubScore anyway.

    A good HubScore doesn't bring you success.  A good HubScore won't improve your readership or earn you more money.

    In essence, a good Hubscore is a reflection of your success (or otherwise).

    mystixspringsposted 7 years ago

    I've only posted three hubs and my scores have been in the 75-80 percent range and I have one fan. I guess that it just takes patience and as people get to know you they will read more of your articles and therefore boosting your hub score.  I'm mostly into writing short stories but one of my hubs is about my hobby of beading.  I'm going to try the diversity approach and see what will happen.  All I can say is good luck.
