Hubscore of 100!

    I'm thrilled to bits - I finally have a Hub with a score of 100!   It's only taken me 6  months smile

    It's rather pathetic that such a little thing has me dancing round the room.  I've been going through all my Hubs, adding photos and playing with the layout, and I can't even remember what I did to the Helium one to give it that extra boost. 

    I've been ready Crazyhorse's posts about labelling images, checking your keyword density etc, so I guess I will be going back through all of them again - maybe I'll get a couple more up there!

      It's a great feeling isn't it! And to get to see it on page one or two of Best Hubs, and featured on the Topics page. Well done!

      My How to generate Electricity hub did touch 100 briefly, but mostly it hovers in the mid nineties. I wish I'd taken screen-grabs, in case it never happens again!

      Marisa - Great girl - keep it up.
      Being new here- ..... LOL I did not even know what the numbers were. Now I know!
      Maybe I'll get there too.

    Congratulations, Marisa. It pays to perk up your old hubs a bit. I went through all of mine recently and many of them picked up a point or two. I've never approached 100 on any of mine, but as I watch the scores go up and down it appears that higher traffic and more comments has the greatest positive effect.

    Congrats Marisa! smile

    I think it mostly depends on traffic, more specifically on sudden traffic jump...

    ...so maybe it's just a coincidence that I've been tweaking, or could the fact that I've added a little bit of new content have boosted its visibility a bit?

      I didn't see anything but this at first.  Doubletake, whew.

    My first hub ever to make it to a hubscore of 100 was... my hub on hubscore big_smile

    Since then though I've had a few others hit the magic 100 mark, but it I found it ironic that it would be the hubscore one that did it.

    And it took me 10 months to do it.

    I actually put some serious concentration into your 100 hub today.
    In fact the printer went sick as I asked it to print, caused it to jam and spent 30 minutes clearing.
    I received amazing news to Day as in less than 24 hours a new hub went to 3rd Popular of my 64 Hubs and a score of 82
    I was ecstatic

      Wow, that's amazing!  Which one was it, your collection of Hubs or the egg one?

      My Helium Hub has gone back down to 94.  Ah well, it was nice while it lasted!

    Congrats, Marisa! The glee we hubbers get from hubscores is amazing, isn't it? But if others understood how difficult it was to generate those high scores, they would understand.

    I have a few that make it to 100, but they tend to flucuate in the mid to high 90s. I need to do some updates on my first hubs. I just redid one the other day; it was so bland and looks much better now.

      Well done Marisa Wright! 100 getting is difficult but being there is more difficult. Try to be there.

      Whitney05 also at 100 right now Congrats to Whitney5... Keep it up.

        It's to do with the HubScore of their hubs, not the AuthorScore.

        But I will point out that Kathryn (aka LdsNana-AskMormon) has an AuthorScore of 97!

        Way to go girl!

        After all that sweating about it I see you've walked over the top of me and onto an impressive score big_smile

    My paper rose hub is a lot of times at 100, ironically it's the one I created purely for enjoyment and have never optimized or tweaked it. Funny how things work out, anyways congrats, it's always nice to see that 100.  You should feel proud, it takes a good hub and good traffic to get that.

    Congratulations!  That is really cool.  I've never had a hub reach 100 (highest I think is 97).  But I have noticed that when I've gone back and tweaked titles and tags my traffic will go up.  Nothing like checking back a few hours later and seeing a bunch of red arrows.  big_smile

    I'm using those SEO tips and parsing out some tags through a few hubs to see what that will do now...

    I add my congratulations to all the others,Marissa--I've never approached 100. One hub had a score of 95 for about five minutes but soon lapsed back to the 88-91 range. I 'm delighted for you and look forward to trying to emulate you.  I'm fiddling around with SEO and content on my existing hubs too and seeing what does and doesn't work. It's great fun--kinda like doing a crossword puzzle or something.

    Putting my RSS feed on my igoogle and my yahoo pages really did up my traffic BTW

    Hubbers Unite!!!! Onward and Upward to 100 smile

    Congratulations Marissa.  My only Hub to reach 100 hasn't paid out a cent yet! 

    My dream Hub would stay permenently on 100, have huge traffic, lots of enthusiastic comments and earn a fortune every day.  Has anyone had a Hub score 100 AND make loads of money?  If so what's your secret?

    Hi Marissa, I know the feeling of delight.  Congratulations.  :-)  One of my hubs just reached a 100 too...it fluctuates actually but seeing the red 100 is totally cool.

    Great work Marissa!  Those top numbers are really a charge... even if they are fleeting!  We love them nonetheless.  It tells us, even for one brief moment - that our effort is recognized:-)

    I have found that our Hub scores, etc... are just like the stockmarket - uP dOwn Up doWn... totally inconsistent!  But we all hope,  that we never have a crash!

    One of my goals on Hubpages was to have at least one article that made it to 100.  I accomplished that with my Places To Sell Your Writing hub, it fluctuates naturally, but it hits 100, and it's a wonderful feeling everytime it happens.  My writer's ego kicks in.
