Woo Hoo: I Hit 100 today on my Hubber Score

    I have been here since January, 2012 and this is only the second time I hit the hundred mark.  The first time it came and went quickly, but this time it has stuck...at least for today!  I have been working very hard to rework my articles and as a result  my hubber score has hit the top, my bounce rate has dropped 7 points, my views are good despite the recent down turn this weekend and I'm making a bit more money.  I have further to go, but that  100 sure looked good today!  I earned it!

      Congratulations Timetraveller smile , Im so happy for you.
      That 100 score attests to the fact that you've worked really hard to get there. Reaching 100 is no mean feat IMO.

      Only once have i ever had a taste of that so desired score and it barely lasted a day, but it was such a "sweet" felling that made me feel so good.

      Well done.

    Congrats!  I'm new to HubPages and I actually just clued onto the concept of the scores.  I'm actually your antithesis - my hubber score was an awe inspiring zero yesterday!  lol

    All of this, despite every entry being featured and a few on the 75+ mark only a couple of days after publication.

    I'm @ 5 now.  So maybe I'll be joining you centenarians sometime soon yikes)  Congrats on the achievement.

    Congratulations. Share with us how you got it. My hubber score has gone down form 96 to 90 in a week. It might tell me why it went down.

    Congratulations. That's really great. The highest I ever got so far was a 91 but now I seem to be stuck at 89 for a few days now. How did you manage to get 100?

    I did too, and there is no longer a dwelling that can contain the size of my head.
    I expect to remain a "100" for the remainder of my days.

      Wouldn't that be nice, Beth 37!  For those of you who are asking, I did not set out with a goal of raising my hubber score.  What I DID set out to do was to go back into every one of my 127 hubs in an attempt to improve their quality.  This is VERY hard work, and I'm still hard at it.  Here are the main things I did:  corrected every grammar, structure, spelling and punctuation  error I could find.  Eliminated words that somehow got duplicated (to and to side by side, for example).  Created at least one made for Pinterest photo for each hub and placed it in the upper right hand corner of each hub.  Made sure that every link matched up appropriately.  Researched key words and also used Google Trends and changed titles and content where necessary.  Checked competition on various titles and eliminated articles I felt would never have a chance at succeeding.  Gave articles that needed it more complete information.  Restructured my formatting so that my articles looked "cleaner" visually.  I also set up a system to help me organize and track all of my articles.  As I said, this is LOTS of work, and it is already paying off.  My goal here is to have tight, well written, well searched articles that give meaningful information to readers.  This is all stuff I knew about but did not totally understand.  If you check any of my articles that already have the Pinterest photos on them, you can see examples of what I am talking about.  I have many more to go and am hoping to finish within the next two weeks and then take a well needed vacation.  I've been here 16 months and finally am "getting it"...I may never make a lot of money here on HP, but in the end, I will have a body of work that counts for something.  If you want to do the same..good luck, and if I can be of assistance, feel free to ask.

        I didn't do any of that, but I did send Simone a check for $5. What she doesn't know is that it's going to bounce. I am assuming my score will be in the low 20's at that point. She can be so spiteful.

    Nice congrats. You have achieved it. I now it is not stable but it is a big thing. I know it. I am a newbie, joined day before yesterday and i am pretty happy to have 60 on my score. But i don't why my hubscore is increased. Please tell me. Congrats, boss.

      Candicetricks:  hubscores are constantly changing.  You can read about them in the learning center, but basically as the quality of your work improves, the scores increase.  Welcome to HP and good luck.  Learn all you can because online writing is complicated and competitive.
