I started on HubPages 2 days ago and my score is 33 rightnow,
with 1 Hub Published
3 Followers, Following 2
Answered 13 questions
Participated in forums answering
Hub Hopping, Leaving comments and so on
There is someone started at same time
who has no hub published
no activities at all
Their Hubscore is 31.
Point of comparing for merely stats and nothing else, I was under impression based on what I read that doing above activities matters for HubScore, but does not seem like it to me.
I am curious as how HubPages determines Author score?
Thank you, I looked at these hubs and also learning center area. I was already following the directions given.
My question is why would someone who follows the directions as given Vs. someone who is inactive, author scores are same?
I sure hope this will be not the case as time progresses.
Well, considering you've been here less than 2 days, it makes the whole question moot.
However, as time progresses, with quality content and interaction within Hubpages, then your authorscore will rise.
So, simply continue doing what you've been doing. Reading hubs and commenting is one thing I know does have an effect on authorscore. Leaving relevant comments the hubs you read is always helpful in ways beyond just reading. It helps the hubber, it helps Hubpages and you help yourself at the same time.
I would say you're on a good path. I did check out your hub...and would highly suggest you bring it to the Extreme Hub Makeover forum thread and have others review it, so you know what areas you can improve upon. That is just a suggestion.
Welcome to HubPages and do try to enjoy your time here.
Try not to worry about the hubber score. It goes up and it goes down and it does that quite frequently. If you write good quality hubs and participate then you will see a fairly rapid rise in your score.
Welcome and I hope you enjoy your time here.
mine was between 95 & 98 for several weeks, and is now down to 91. What makes it wave around so much? Is it influenced by people voting down a hub? Or is is lower because I've been on the forums less?
Sometimes there seems to be no logical explanation. Its based on some formula which is unknown to us.
I believe that others voting hubs down has marginal impact on your hubber score.
At times I've been on the forums and commented yet still my score goes down. I've learned, overtime, to try to go with the flow and not get too affected by it.
Before I hit 100 for the first time I got to 98 then 99 but it stubbornly refused to reach the magic number. Then it dropped down further and it took ages to get back up there and in fact I wondered if I'd ever see those lofty numbers again. But it did and has and so the cycle continues!
Welcome to HP I do agree with the other posts here. You're new - Enjoy yourself, keep doing what you're doing and the number will rise.
Welcome on HubPages! The HubScore changes slowly and you don't see an effect immediately. Simply keep doing what you're doing and you should see it rise.

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...

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...
