Author HubScore

    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. smile I have been trying to write daily and be active on the site, but it keeps dropping.

        I think that under the new system it will be at or near zero until you clear boot camp and have 5 featured hubs.

    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?

      Thanks for the tip, Mighty Melo. I'll work on that today.

    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.
