How to Get Hubpages Accolades
Have you been seeing all these colorful badges on the top hubbers' profiles and wanting to get some for yourself? Here I am going to show you what you have to do in order to get each accolade for your profile.
Why do you need accolades?
Well, honestly you don't NEED them in order to be successful on hubpages, but there are some good benefits of trying to collect the accolades. These are some of the most obvious benefits:
- They give you goals to work for within Hubpages
- They show your readers that you are a serious hubber and can help you gain followers
- They help move you up the ranks of hubpages to get your new hubs noticed more quickly and get more traffic
- It's a good way to show off to all the other hubbers
- They look cool
If you want to earn the accolades to show off on your profile, then simply follow the instructions below. If you feel like you've earned an accolade, don't worry if it doesn't show up immediately. It could take a few days for your new accolades to appear. The membership, questions, answers, followers, hubs, and page view accolades will continue to update the number shown within them at every major number mark (most are 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000, and so on). The rest of the accolades do not change but are simply achievement badges to show that you are particularly good at something.
This accolade is awarded to hubbers who remain on Hubpages for more than one year. The number in the middle shows how many years they have been a member.
This accolade is awarded to you for publishing a certain number of hubs. The largest milestone that you have passed will be the number in the badge. You acquire this for the first time after you publish 10 hubs. This accolade updates at 50, 100, 300, 500, 1000, 2000, 5000, and 10000.

This accolade can only be earned over time and by socializing with other hubbers. It is likely that you will earn the badge if other hubbers quickly strike up conversations with you in the comments after your hubs.
This accolade can be earned by having conversations or discussions with other commentators on your hubs. To earn this you will need very interesting or controversial topics in some of your hubs. Also, if your hubs tend to have long back and forth comment strings between hubbers, then you have a good chance of getting this badge.
This accolade can be earned by taking the time to reader others' hubs. You must leave insightful and meaningful comments that are a little bit more detailed than "great hub!". If you spend time reading and leaving thoughtful comments on other hubs, then you are likely to receive this accolade.
This accolade is awarded to those who help out the Hubpages community as a whole by helping new users in the forums or by reporting unsatisfactory content to moderators. A quick way to try to earn the badge is by hub hopping. To hub hop, just read the hub that appears, vote it up, vote it down, comment, or flag it. If you think the hub is against hubpages rules or is very low quality, you can flag it, and the moderators will review it. When you are finished looking at a hub, just click the "hop" button and you will be given another recently published hub to view.
Engaging Writer Accolade
This accolade is awarded to hubbers who are great writers that can easily express what they have to say in an interesting way. If you have written many hubs that people are interested in enough to read from start to finish then you have a good chance of earning this accolade.
Here are some content writing tips to get you started
Great Commenter Accolade
This accolade is awarded to hubbers who leave insightful comments on other people's hubs and respond to the comments that others leave on their hubs. Be sure to avoid leaving one-word comments such as "cool" and try to reply to the comments that people leave on your hubs. This accolade has 8 different levels. When you first earn it, you become a Level I Commenter (Roman Numeral). But you can increase it over time to Level VIII.
Once you begin to earn the accolades you will begin to feel more respect from the hubpages community, and there is also a good chance you will get more followers. Thank you for taking the time to actually read this hub, and good luck trying to get all of the accolades.
Some of the accolades can be lost again after they are earned. The community, engaging writer, popularity, discussions, and comments accolades can all be lost if you do not keep up your level of effort toward each of these. For example, if you work hard hub hopping to earn the community accolade and then stop once your receive it, you may lose that accolade from your profile after a month or two.
