What does a score of 100 mean?

    Is 100 the maximum hubscore a hub can get? And what does it basically indicate?

      yes, i have seen some perfect 100 hub score. It may mean its a quality hub and getting lots of traffic but not necessarily its the best of the hubs.

        A score of hundred for the author is an achievement with the kind of score fluctuations we see. A hubscore/ author score of 95and above  I think make them featured hubs and hubbers!! 
        I am sure it means a lot to the person who has reached it, as it is in a way a validation of the hard work.. I for one would like to get there. smile

          I too have seen a couple of hubs with a score of 100 and I was wondering what does that mean. The score fluctuates pretty much I must say, I had reached a score of 96 once but its down to 93 now! I was wondering on what basis it is being given that score.

    Most hubs start out with a hub score of around 50 then gradually creep upwards- I have never seen one go straight in at 100 but maybe some have. The hub score has very little meaning so don't fret about it. There is no correlation between a good hub score and the amount of money it will make. Some hubs take longer to develop than others- just keep writing quality hubs.

      Thank you Brian .... I was wondering about the hub score but not fretting about it. My primary frustration is attracting comments. I love feedback - positive or negative; it's what helps me hone my writing skills.

    That is the highest it can get. It basically means you must be doing something right.

      So when it falls down it means that you are doing something wrong smile

        Not necessarily, may be it is one of HP's idiosyncratic ways

    I do not know what it means but I begun to get page impressions as of September 11, 2010 when only I have started on hubpages on June 3, 2010 and I am not selling anything on a website. So I am on my way to earning money with only 1 unpublished hub and a short time on hubpages. No complaints are coming from me. Good luck. Thank you. Go in peace.

    It looks to me as if the ones that have hit 100 have both a good amount of traffic and a really good amount of comments.  Maybe there's something else that factors in too?  Maybe people voting up - something like that?  (Or not maybe.)  I do know that they hit 100 and then drop, so if it were just traffic and comments, I wouldn't think that would change (unless they're "in competition" with other Hubs on the site that are "vying" for x amount of spots at 100?  (That kind of thing?)  Or, maybe there's some kind of site-wide percentage thing that pushes one Hub up or down?  Just wild guesses.  Anyway, I do see that good traffic and a real lot of comments do seem to be something they have in common.  (For the most part, the comments aren't quickie comments, like "good Hub".  There are whole discussions going on.

      I was thinking that it had something to do with traffic. Well guess partly true. Have you ever hit a 100 Lisa? You are at 99 now smile

    An score of 100 means that the person has the right amount of traffic, comments, hubs, each hub score and participation within the Hubpages community. It means that the quality of the hubs are very high and that means the author score should be high as well. It takes a lot of consistency and a good mixture of hubs to get to that point. The highest score I have achieved is 95. Haven't reached that 100 score yet, but I just know I will soon. Those who haven't hit the score yet, we just have to keep it going.

    In the end 100 means nothing. It will possibly make you excited for the ego boost because you've managed to achieve a hubberscore of 100, however, it will be temporary at best. hmm

    To everyone who aspire to reach a score of 100, keep trying smile
