How to Keep Your Hubber Profile Score High

Updated on March 24, 2014

It was fun to hit 100!

Queen for a Day: The first time I hit a 100 hubber score
Queen for a Day: The first time I hit a 100 hubber score

Is There a Way to Keep Your Author Score High?

First, I don’t want this hub—or even the title—to sound arrogant, as if I have all the answers or am a great hubber because my score has stayed in the 90’s once it got there. I have read wonderful hubs from hubbers who have scores of 100 as well as great articles from hubbers whose score may fluctuate greatly, and may be in the 80’s or even 70’s. I don’t know all the factors that affect hub scores. I’ve researched a lot over the past five months that I’ve been involved with HubPages, but I don’t claim to have all the answers. Still, since I joined HubPages, once my score rose above 90, it has stayed above 90, often hovering near 100. On December 24th, 2011, my hubber score actually reached 100 for a day. That was exciting. And although I don’t know that I was really qualified to be there or even to write this hub, I’ll go ahead and give it a shot and try to explain why I think my hubber score has stayed high over my first five months.

It does take some time for the initial score to rise. I remember afer I first started, watching my hubber score at 28 or so, rising several points per day, moreso as I wrote more, and finally hitting the 90 mark. Once I hit 90, I have stayed there and above. My average score seems to be 95 to 97. I have gone as low as 92 or as high as 99. Hoping for that 100 was something I thought would never happen. I understand how elusive it is, though, as there are some great 100 hubbers out there—Patty Inglish, Kathryn Vercillo, Saddle Rider, and more—and I don’t even pretend to be on their level. I also know there are some wonderful writers out there who are frustrated by their score not rising to the level they'd like (and probably deserve). I can't explain those incidences, and my advice isn't a guarantee, but perhaps it will arm new hubbers with some basic information to focus on. As a new hubber, it's hard to know what direction to take, so maybe my suggestions can help.


Tips for Keeping Your Hubber Score High

How has my scored stayed in the 90’s, and even usually in the high 90s? I’m not sure, but I’ll give you the tips I’ve used in the five months I’ve been a part of HubPages.

Write High Quality Articles

I spend a lot of time making sure my articles, or hubs, sound right, the words sound right, the grammar is correct, and the typos don’t exist. I go back over hubs over the months to check them again and correct things that I find when I go back and look. I’m a perfectionist when it comes to grammar, so I can’t help myself from going back and looking at my older hubs from time to time I am mortified when I find an error. I also try to publish at least one hub per week, although I don't always achieve that goal.

Be Involved and Make Comments

Be involved!

Answer questions that are asked and ask your own. I have done a lot of that to where my accolades reflect that I have asked and answered 100 questions. Answer questions that you see. Get involved in forums, too.

Make comments!

Commenting on other hubs makes a difference and will also bring more traffic to your own hubs as you get more followers. I try to read 2 to 5 hubs per day and make comments.

Research SEO and Backlinks

Learning about key words and linking to other hubs and sites may increase scores. I’m busy with my day job as well as trying to write hubs in my spare time, so researching SEO is on the backburner for me. I do try to submit my hubs to a few sites at times, at least Facebook and Twitter. I consider Reddit, StumbleUpon, and Delicious, among others. Other than that, I'm trying to learn more about this subject as I go.

Keep writing and keep learning....

I don’t know if this hub has helped hubbers to know how to keep their hubber scores high. If nothing else, maybe it at least helps the newer hubbers to know what things are important in staying involved on this site. And who knows? Maybe we all need tips from other hubbers that might positively affect our hubber scores! I know that I appreciate any tips from other hubbers. Let's just keep writing and learning. That's what I'm trying to do.

      indiabbie--I'm glad I could enlighten you on that. Just keep in mind that the hubber score isn't super important overall, and it can fluctuate greatly, so don't let that get you down. Welcome to HubPages. It's a great place to be!

      sunikunnoth--Thanks so much for your wonderful comments! Once my score hit 100, it has gone back up there quite frequently. Just keep at it, and I'll be yours will, too. I do have some other hubs about HP. Hopefully, I'll come up with some more in the future, too. Thanks again. Do well! :-)

      What a flood of comments...This itself shows how useful and popular your hub is. I have never reached 100 and my ever best is 97. I hope one day I too can reach that great record. Once I got 99 for one of my hubs; but my best author score so far is 97 and it usually stands between 90 - 95 range. Your article is brilliant and really informative. Thank you for sharing. Hope you will write more such user friendly hubs for the benefit of growing stars of HP.

      This is a very useful hub on HubberScore, especially to those that are new to HubPages and are still confused by these things. I agree about always trying to write and publish great and high quality hubs as well as commenting on other people's hubs. I still have so much more to learn about SEO and backlinks and many other topics. We may not know exactly what it takes to get a high HubberScore and keep it that way, but I think it's a real great thing and feeling to see your HubberScore slowly but surely increasing.

      Neil Sperling 4 years ago from Port Dover Ontario Canada

      I do not understand 1 either.... Firefox add on "No Script" does what it says - blocks scripts - so there is a chance that hub pages has scripts that track activity and since I block scripts that are not needed to read and write and reply or post ... it could be their system does not record my activities....

      traffic makes me happy - and like I said I see no drop in traffic as my hub score plummeted .... so what value hub score has is totally beyond my understanding. I see no value in it at all... other than an ego stroke and I am comfortable in my own skin and do not ego stroking.. LOL

    • Neil Sperling profile image

      Neil Sperling 4 years ago from Port Dover Ontario Canada

      LOL -- I dropped to 1 ..... I think partly due to the fact I use Fire Fox with "No Script Add on".... but I noticed NO change in traffic - whether 1 or 80+.... my traffic is the same.... which leads me to not caring a bit about being number 1

      Be Happy -- I am!

      I have wondered the same thing. I got my feelings all hurt when I went to 92 but then it dropped a little a few days later. I try to write nice Hubs and I really do care,

      :(

      but hey I guess I'm not doing that bad and I hope I can do better and get back in the 90's ! I think the majority of people here do want to do their best. I really like this Hub and you have so many responses you can see that does everyone else !

      Jeani, just be patient as you write quality hubs. SEO is search engine optimization, doing the most optimal to get traffic to your work. (such as using keywords) Backlinks are links from other places that link back to your hub. When you have enough hubs, you can even create your own by linking your hubs. When your hubs are shared on certain sites, you'll get backlinks that way. I'm not an expert on either of those, but there are hubs out there that explain it better than I can. Hope that helped some!

      Congrats Dr.Mark1961! I think it's great that you "let it go", and got the 100! I just wrote about "letting go" in a hub. I really think that stuff works and I'm going to apply that philosophy to my writing on here, too.

      DrMark--Congrats! That's cool. I'd take a screen shot especially if it's your first time at 100. I've noticed, though, after you hit 100 the first time that it happens more often. I don't freak out anymore when I see 100, but it's still nice to see! Take a picture!!

      I had taken the advice of several other hubbers and decided not to even notice my score or that of my hubs, so I surprised when I looked at the screen last night and saw I had 100. Strange? Do you think it will last more than a day? Do you think I should take a photo of my screen in case it disappears quickly????

      Lauren, I usually do a Word doc first. It just seems to flow better, and Word catches more errors (automatically fixing some) as I write. Grammar is important to me, too. As far as proofreading tips, I wrote one on proofreading your own work if you'd like to hop over and read it. I hope you do well here at HubPages. Perhaps I'll see you again soon!

      Victoria Lynn, congratulations on hitting a Hubber score of 100 - and also for the 656 comments so far on this post. Both look well-deserved to me. Not just for the reasons you gave in your Hub, but because you radiate genuineness and caring, both from your profile photo and your writing. I would follow you for that reason alone, but this was also a fantastic Hub, which I'm about to bookmark. I want to reread it on occasion in my own quest to raise my score and keep it high.

      Thanks for being who you are. :~)

      My hubs are not High-quality hubs they're more homey, I don't go into lots of detail about anything. I go over and over my hubs like you do but I still miss spelling or grammar. I won't ever see that 100 mark but I am so glad that you made it and it stays up there. Lots of good informaion on this hub. Voted up.

      vox vocis--I must admit that, while I think about keywords somewhat, I really just try to write well when I'm writing. I figure that most of the "key words" will come naturally if I'm writing about something that people are interested in. Thanks for the comment. You make a great point.

      Yes, noenhulk, you can at least do that. That's a good idea. And maybe aim for writing a hub a week or even every two weeks! Heck--they would add up with once a month! Good luck!

      I learned that the whole SEO and keyword research "science" - well, the art of taking your article to the No. 1 spot in the search results - actually keeps me away from writing regularly. I think I'm going to follow my own intuition and write without thinking about these things. Maybe I get lucky lol As for the hub score, I'm satisfied with it for now because it's steady even if I make a long pause regarding commenting or publishing. Useful hub, though, it makes one think!

      I vote up this hub. Great tips and advice. Thanks for sharing. I am not as active as other hubbers but I am trying my best to rebound. For almost four years I got only several hubs. Maybe I can make my hubs shoot up ranking by being active, for the time being Huh!
