I've read a lot of comments about people having a low score... sometimes in spite of having many hubs or being here for many years.I understand that score's will vary depending on the quality of Hubs and the popularity of the topic.
So what is the average score of a Hubber? And what's a realistic target for new Hubber's to set themselves? I have been here for 12 days, have 12 Hubs and a score of 92...what's normal??
With a score like yours after 12 days, there is no reason why you shouldn't soon hit the magic 100
Geez...way to go and make my head swell! Really? Because I was browsing through the list of Hubbers and there are tonnes with scores in the high 90's. It must fluctuate, surely? I'll be down to 20 next week, just you wait!
I'm trying to think about what I could have done differently from others but I haven't met another Hubber to compare with!!
Hhmmmm...might have to write a Hub about this...
Well, for one thing, your hubs are very well written, original, informative and interesting to read, and you add a touch which personalizes your writing. You show interest in your reader, and you are writing about what you know well. These are all huge pluses, as this is the kind of writing that draws traffic over time.
From browsing through your hubtivity, it appears you are active in the community, answering questions, commenting on hubs, asking questions. All of these things will add to your hubber score.
Keep up the great work!
Yes you will go far, you write well i can read-- and enjoy it, and most important find it interesting. Great job.
You are going very well in a short time which is great.
You will soon see high 90's I believe.
The magic 100 is fickle, it's hard to stay there, so expect to hover between 96 and a hundred.
I will check out your hubs, you seem to be off to a quick trip to the top.
Aawww...Now I have a REALLY big head!! Thank you all for such lovely feedback.
I do make a point of spending about half an hour a day asking and answering questions (it's just the way I learn) and I always leave a comment in every hub I visit (and I vote and I give feedback).
But that's the point of Hubpages isn't it...giving one another credibility and feedback?
If you write high enough quality content you're likely to stay in the 90s and never drop below them. I don't think I've seen the 80s since about June last year - even when I've had months where I haven't hubbed, or even posted more than once or twice in the forums.
Most people take about 1-2 months to hit the 90s. Well done, and I don't doubt you'll stay there.
In the end, scores aren't important though - they don't change your earnings or traffic but are more a way to stop spammers (anyone with a score below 75 has all outgoing links nofollowed.)
WryLilt, remember me?/ It's good to see u again!
Aahh..so that's the purpose of hubscore. I've noticed single digit scores and wondered what was going on.
Such a complex system when you look into it, there's so many scores and karma's and accolade's...but you're spot on - they're just numbers at the end of the day and we shouldn't let them affect our ego's nor influence our writing.
I think a lot of it is common sense - *HUB*pages...indicates a hub of activity...a community. I suppose a lot of new hubbers have dollar signs in their eyes and don't realize that it's a community first and the income biz comes second to that....a pay off for being a good "neighbour"
Of Course there is also the issue of the Casting Couch to consider
You can avoid that unpleasantness like I did, by aiming to maintain all your individual hubs scoring above 75 - 80. If you get the bulk of your hubs in that range, you should maintain a high score throughout. So write good and interesting stuff and you will see your score up there and your traffic flow will also endorse that quality.
Welcome to here btw.
Casting Couch?? (Thanks for the warm welcome)
Care to enlighten me? Never heard the term.
And that poses a new question...what determines the score of a hub? I imagine that traffic and feedback are big influences (I have few of either) any thing else I should know about though?
I currently have all but two hubs (those I published last night are 51 & 58) hovering between 71 - 81....so if I continue to amend, them, edit them, keep them appropriate I should be ok?
(Yeah - I'm thinking out loud!)
Have you Never Auditioned for a specific part?
Because you are in Oz, I will email Earnest in Melbourne and ask him to introduce you to the Casting Couch.. but please appreciate his age and his constantly winking left eye, at the meeting okay?
I guess the best advice.. Just Relax.. Don't Think Too Much about scores etc.. And don't complain if Earnest calls out "Go Diggers!" when you mention 'Casting Couch'.. He is an excellent guy and might even fix your car as well
I would bet anything that the attached article is the problem with low scores. New hubbers like to go after a lot of action to get traffic, and this kills their score.

I tend to bounce between 90-95 but not got past that yet, I think watching your score too much would depress you so I only glance at it from time to time...if only I could do that with my earnings; then I'd be happy lol
Welcome to Hubpages and the Forums!
As long as your Authorscore(number on profile) stays above 75 and your hubscores stay above 40, I think you'll do just fine.
I personally have ranged between 89-96 for most of my time here. And, to keep it high, like upper 90's, you mostly have to remain active within the community, like reading and commenting on Hubs of others.
You could, if you have an opportunity, take part in HubMob and Vote on the regular contests on Hubpages.
Other than that, you're doing well so far. Keep it up!

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?
