Can't seem to break an author score of 95.

    I seem to hover between an author score of 92 and 95 generally.  Anyone know how to break 95?

      You've only been here 4 months...I'm sure it took me a year to get over 95

        Then I suppose I shall wait.  Thanks, Univited Writer. smile

      I have no idea-- I think it just takes time.

        Awesome answer, Rochelle...I will try, try, try to be patient then as I continue.  Thanks a bunch for the solid, and very honest answer!

          It's not really much of an answer. (My hubby says "I don't know" is not an answer at all.)
          I don't think I reached 100 for a couple of years-- (and it still bounces around) but I'm sure there are others who got there much earlier.

            Rochelle, personally, I find "I don't know" to be a perfectly valid answer. smile  And, sometimes the most honest.

      I personally hover between 80 and 85, so I think you're doing great.

        Thanks, deblipp!  From what I'm taking away, it takes time, writing, and participation.  smile

      Keep doing what you're doing and don't think about it. I think it has more to do with what/how you contribute to the HP community rather than number of hubs or how often you post in the forums.
      There have been times when I've hardly been active, and I reach a higher score. It may be views, clicks, followers, comments, sales, helping others, writing informative hubs, etc.

      I generally have the same problem, but one day I actually saw my score at 96 smile

      I have, at least, not seen my score swoop down below 90 in a couple of months now. I am excited for the day when I get a score of 100 though!

    Write more hubs with higher scores?
    I can't say I worry about it.  But I am in this primary for money and amusement value.

      I'm not particularly worried about it.  It would just be nice to see.  I've written about 35 hubs or so in 4 months.  I'll just keep plugging.  Thanks! smile

        My husband has almost 200 hubs, and has been on here more than 2 years, and he very seldom reaches a 95 score...he consistently stays in the lower 90's.

        I've gotten up to 99, but I swear that every time I come to the forums and comment a few times, my score drops 2 or 3 points, so I just give up concerning myself with it, since I can't figure it out, lol.  lol

        Just do your best, and don't worry about the score--that's probably when it'll go up for you! big_smile

          TamCor, it's funny you should say that.  I always notice a drop of a point or two when I post in forums.  Veddy interesting....

            I'm not sure that posting in the forums lowers hub score or profile score.
            I often see 100 and post a lot! smile I think as UW said, it takes time.

              Time I got...lol  Oddly enough, I hit 96 this morning.  Hmmmm.  smile  Thanks to ALL of you.  earnest, I envy your score on a daily basis and I know you post often.  smile

    Hi Motown.  Yes I know.  However I have given up with it now, because all that happened was I sweated about the magic score and the copiers zoomed in on my content.

    They join HubPages, follow the top authors, and steal their content.  I think a score below 95 is probably best.

    Er. I don't really know about the top score secret but in addition to writing hubs, commenting and forum stuff I was hub hopping regularly.  Now I can't be bothered.  Seems my score is dropping slightly.

    Good luck with your quest!

      Thanks, Mark, for the good wishes.  You know, I haven't been hub hopping as regularly as I was before.  I'll have to get back into that habit.

    Don't worry about the Hubberscore, you are lucky. I see people her a long time who can't even get pass 80 or so. Hovering between 92 and 95 is great for a person here 4 months. As you continue to be a part of the community and write great articles I am sure it will increase.

      Thanks, Cardisa.  The prevailing opinion seems to be to continue to write and wait.  I shall do both.  smile

    Hey Motown,

    Don't worry about it. Keep writing hubs and keep visiting the forums, keep participating in the community(reading and commenting on hubs), vote on the contests, write hubs for weekly inspiration and keep doing what you are already doing.

    You'll get higher sooner or later. wink

      Thanks, Cags.  I think that's the best advice so far.  And, frankly, I love participating, so that shouldn't be too tough.  Besides, I'm one of those who has trouble keeping her mouth shut on occasion.  How could I NOT comment?

      You're a great one, sir Raymond!

    I concur with everything* said above, M2C.
    Just continue to be active in all the ways you want to be active (which you ARE!).
    I, too, notice a dip in score when I shoot my mouth off on the forums. Doesn't stop me, tho!!!

    *And that includes your assessment of Sir Raymond. He's a keeper, alright!

      MM, I've got to say, I've met some great folks here.  You and Cags among them.  Thanks to both of you for the great advice and encouragement.

    Have you read the hubs about how to get an author score of 100?

    Once you're nearly there you can wake up one morning and see 100 ... and dance round the room.  You make a coffee, sit down and ... OH NOES ... it's gone down to 99 in the last 10 minutes.

    So many things affect your score that it's not overly important, so long as you've got a reasonable score ... and Mark's probably right about content thieves.

    OK mine is 96 at the moment take it quick you can have it, one thing is for sure it will not last very long. Sometimes I think maybe, the number is just there to check how alert you are when you log in smile

      Thanks 2uesday!  I managed to hit it the day after I posted the OP, and then I was down again...lol

      C'est le vie!  But thanks for your generosity!  smile

    I've been here 16 months, and while I haven't found the time to write as regularly as many hubbers, I've still managed to stay in the 90's most of this year.

    A couple of my picture hubs were featured in their category recently, and another hub was featured on the home page for a short while, which seemed to co-incide with my reaching 100 a couple of times in the last couple of weeks.

    So I guess it comes down to writing interesting stuff that people like to read, some nice pictures, a nice layout, and some decent keyword research and SEO.  Oh..and taking part in the community, as others have said.

    Keep on writing M2C, you'll get there.  Cheers smile
