At the time of this post, my author HubScore is a flat 0. I've only joined recently, but I have seen a few other users who have no current hubs published that are in the 70-80 range. The only explanation I am able to think of is that I'm still in "boot camp" until I publish a few more hubs. Any feedback would be appreciated.
A few tips, read and comment genuinely on people's Hubs. Don't randomly follow a stack of people who you are not seriously interested in reading the articles of, and spend time interacting on forums nicely so you get 'noticed' plus you gain points with HP that way. Finally, don't get too 'hung up' on Hub scores or Hubber Author Score, in reality they mean little, and Google can't even see them. Once your author score hits 75 any outgoing links in your hubs become 'do follow', and if you don't have these you have no need to worry about your score at all. Right now my advice is to just write and enjoy yourself socialising here, the rest will follow naturally.
Thanks for this post. My hub score is currently zero, and I'm feeling mighty discouraged by it! I'll keep doing the activities suggested to see if it will go up.
Jake, we are going to have to look at this a bit more to see why it's zero. I'll get back to you tomorrow.
Do scores typically go to zero? I'm a bit worried that mine will go into the negative range. I have been trying to write daily and be active on the site, but it keeps dropping.
Sometimes i have seen such type of acts but doesn't get any answer.
Thanks a lot for the replies. I'll just disregard it and focus on making my content as high-quality as possible.
It seems that under the current system hubscores are generally not great until you have 5 featured hubs.
So, it is functioning properly for you. If you make some good hubs, it should continue to go up over the next several days. I see you are at 11 now and climbing....
some hubbers who don't publish any hub at all but has higher hubscore is because they are extremely active in participating HP forums, questions, hub hopping and following hubbers. You could try answering 5 questions, comments on hubs that you like and join in forums everyday. I am sure you can see the score difference. Mine did.
I do all activities on daily basis but sometimes it fluctuates to low and on another day it goes high . I am little bit annoyed with this type of stuff. If you have not done any activity then hub score should be decreasing day by day slowly but as i saw it decreases gradually and increases frequently.
I think it might also have to do with the quality of your user profile. I'm not sure what yours look like, but sprucing it up a bit maybe could help?
You didn't sit as a baby, with the Olympics running on and say to yourself "Oh crikey, I'll never be able to run that fast" - and then decide to never learn to walk.
It's not instant, but it is very achievable.
I just finished the boot camp, I started at 25 but after my first Hub I was 70...I really don't know what's the criteria for the HubScore, but I create one Hub every free time I got, also I try to participate in other sections like Q&A or forums...this helps you a lot. Be creative and original, and keep the imagination flowing, this will take you to a 100HubScore.

My title should have read another hub author score question . I have noticed this hubber that puts up a lot of hubs, however, they are all very short, most less than 100-200 words. The type of hub that can be put...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to...

This is what I have observed with my hubscore. After publishing a hub and leaving comments on other hubs, I get lots of traffic but the hubscore falls by the hour. When I stay away from HubPages for a few days, and the...

I would like to know. I haven't decided which of my available articles here in my files to publish yet I want to gradually increase my Hubber score. Is it possible?
