I am simply curious and apparently I can be so on this thread... so here it goes:-)
If I have a total of TEN Hubs - what per average Hub score would they need to maintain for my overall score to average above a 95?
Anyone know the right equation for getting these results? I figured if I broke it down to ten hubs... I could make sense of the system in some way.. LOL
Perhaps using HP scoring table in the help section - while applying something "like" this will better determine "how" our friend the "Great HP" determines our life:-)
First, why do you care about the score so much? It's an internet hub score, it doesn't mean anything. I am just going to be straight forward with you, I think you are desiring to dominate the pages, and its a bit ill if you ask me, which then you aren't asking me are you?
Second, if you did find out how then you could manipulate the score and that isn't really fair is it? That's called cheating.
Nana - you are a scream. Why don't you do the same as everyone else - suck it and see?
"Suck it and see" ??? Now who has the misplaced comment in the feed??? Mark, are you PMS ing? Because I could write a good article on that for you!
There is nothing wrong with Nana to try to find how to bring her scores up or know how things work. For me it is a self challenge. Bettering your hubs... Isn't that what most of the forum is for???
Bettering your Hubs is not the same thing as bettering your personal score.
Pursuing the first, yes, absolutely. Pursuing the second - that way lies madness ...
Ahhhh - you obviously missed the several other threads based around the same question. i.e. "Why is my score lower than other people's when I am writing the truth?"
She has been told time and time again how it works and my suggestion to try things until she gets it right - "suck it and see" was perfectly good advice.
But if you feel that is a misplaced comment, well, I noticed you deleted the other comment in the other thread that was completely inappropriate, and I deleted my quote of it too - guess you missed that huh?
The only people who know how to work the hubber score is HubPages. They have told us that the hubber score relies on number of hubs, forum participation, commenting, joining fan clubs, how many fans you have, etc.
It's not all based on just your individual hub scores. It's based on overall participation in the site. If I had 400 hubs and never once commented on anyone hub or participated in the forum, I would have a lower score than if I just had 200 hubs and remained active throughout the site.
You really are trying to force yourself into this. Just write and be happy. Stop trying to understand every little detail.
Nana, I'm curious as to why you are so curious?
You know, when I first joined I was somewhat preoccupied with score, but since I stopped worrying and trying to make it go up, it's gone up on its own.
Besides, you have a score of 94 (as of right now, it might be higher 5 minutes from now) which is pretty good.
Oh my goodness... what passionate responses here?
Oh dear... please pardon me.
theres no harm in trying to work it out is there? I want to improve my scores to..I am new and love to see the numbers go up. As long as you are playing by the rules right? perhaps I will stop caring in a few months, years....???
I would say that one possible way to raise your score would be to make the titles of your hubs more readable. Titles in all caps or as long as a full sentence turn me off from reading them, honestly. A title should give a concentrated glimpse of what the majority of an article is about.
My life isn't determined by a HubScore.
And trying to figure out how an AuthorScore is calculated by the sum of the individual HubScores would be a waste of time.
Here's what a member of HubPages staff has had to say...
I added the bold emphasis.
All that and plenty more about HubScore can be found on my hub here: http://hubpages.com/_learn/hub/Hubscore
I will add another caution here *dusting off statistics lecturer hat*
Your personal score is a PERCENTILE score.
HubPages takes everyone who is Hubbing, and arranges them in order of "merit", based on factors like the ones Darkside has listed.
The very best one gets a score of 100.
As far as I can tell, there is only ever one person scoring 100. It shifts around between four or five people from day to day.
The next two or three get 99.
The next half a dozen get 98.
As we get more people on HubPages, there will be more people at each of the top scores, because the top fractional % group will expand from two or three people to five or six people.
The only way to get your score over 95 is to constantly do better than 95% of the people Hubbing on those things that HubPages uses to calculate the score.
This form of competitive comparison is psychologically unhealthy and I don't advise it.
As long as your score is over 75, HubPages considers you a good person.
Now that you are officially a good person, you can stop worrying about how you are performing and get on with just being!
Use your Hubs to express yourself, and forget the scores. You are already OK.
And it's rather strange - considering your belief system is based entirely on hearsay and rumor - that you keep on pushing to know how things work Can't you just take it on faith ?
What I meant by "suck it and see" is - experiment. Try different things . See what works. Take the information you have and use it to your advantage. Do the same as everyone else has to do - suck it and see. That's how you learn. That's how I learned. I have been the top hubber. It took me months to work out how to do it.
I didn't say "suck it up"
And my life is going extremely well, thank you. I am very happy - I have a loving wife, I live in a great part of the world - the food is wonderful and the wine is cheap; and I have some very good friends around me.
How's your life?
Pooh. She deleted her post. Nana. It's one thing to write and share what you are interested in and knowledgeable about with others, but you insist on asking the same questions over and over again. I'm not sure I understand why you persist so much. Why you can't just write, comment, participate, and be merry... I'm not sure why you question so much.
Inspirepub- at times there are multiple hubbers with a score of 100. I've seen 3 hubbers at a time with a score of 100.
Being a newbie, I don't have much wisdom to add to this conversation. I'm actually just trying to earn some points by posting in the forum. Okay, then, I'm off to see if I can find some inappropriate content to flag!

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...
