Which of your hubs has the highest score?

    I'd love to read other hubbers' highest ranked hubs to see if there's anyway I could improve some of mine. Maybe we could all learn from each other that way.

    My coconut milk soap recipe hub has the best score of all of my hubs with a score of 100. Then I have a few more in the 90s, 80s and 70s. I deleted any hubs that were scored below 70 if their score didn't improve after editing them (I gave them a couple of months). Ultimately I'd like to get all my hubs to have a score of at least 85 and so it's really those below that score that I want to improve on for now.

      My hub on Easter Egg Ornament you can Keep Forever currently has a score of 100. I'm sure it will be dropping now that we are past Easter.

        That's a great hub Sherry. I don't think the score will drop after Easter but the views likely will. I like it so much I Pinterested it.

      Two of my top Hubs for Google traffic and income are rated 68 and 66 (that's my lowest score on a Hub). The HP rating system has nothing to do with good traffic, income or what Google considers high-quality content. Is your 100 Hub getting more than 100 views a day?

      1. sleepylog profile image91
        sleepylogposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        My 100 score hub gets between 100-300 views a day, sometimes more and it's the hub that gets me the most views.

          It's just a coincidence. 

          And by the way revealing your highest-trafficked Hubs is not really a good idea.  What will happen is that unscrupulous people will decide to copy your success, and they'll write Hubs on the same subject (or simply steal your one and post it on some other site).  Result - more competition, and your traffic will drop.

          My Hubs with the highest scores have content and words but get hardly any views and have few comments.
          The ones with more views and comments are only poems and are much farther down on the list. Go figure.

        I'm sorry to hear that Beth, I didn't mean to make you feel bad. I can see that many of your hubs are poems, that is probably why their scores are low. Your non-poem hubs are very good though and I be their scores are higher.

      I'd have to say my hub about Munro Chambers (Eli on Degrassi) and my "Top Ten Songs by Alicia Keys" have the highest hub scores.  But my most popular hub is the one on "The Truth About Hip Hop and Celebrities Who Serve Satan."  Then I would say my Gossip Girl hub is also pretty popular.

    You could check out the  weekly "Rising Star" candidates. They're hubs written by new users; staff selects some candidates every week for voting and Christy Kirwan usually makes a forum announcement.

    It may give you an idea of what HP considers a good hub, though only the authors know what their hubscores are.  And there's no telling whether these hubs get a lot of readers or hardly any.  Many are on obscure topics that probably don't get many hits.

    If I were you, I would look at my highest traffic hubs rather than highest scoring hubs and try to replicate that success.  Traffic is directly related to earnings, whereas scores are not really indicative of how well a hub performs with readers.

    1. sleepylog profile image91
      sleepylogposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      That's a great suggestion calculus, I'll  definitely check out some of those hubs.

      And yes, I'm aware that scores aren't reflective of traffic but I want to write great hubs because I enjoy writing and take pride in my work, an increase in traffic would just be a great bonus smile

    7 of my hubs are scored 100, but they don't get as much traffic as you might think per day. They just get regular traffic and this varies between the hubs. I think the only things these 7 hubs have in common is that they are long in length, look pretty with pictures, get regular traffic, seem to fulfil some sort of need for organic traffic and possibly were voted thumbs up by some readers. That's pretty much it. Personally I wouldn't be aiming for 100 scores (and I didn't try to). I would just try to improve if all my scores were 50 or something because there would be a few things wrong if all of them are low.

      sleepylogposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Wow 7 hubs with a score of 100! That's awesome, good job! While it would be great to have all my hubs scored that high, I realise it's not very likely to happen, so I would just be happy if I could get them all to at least have a score of 80. If you're going to do something you might as well do a good job.

    At the moment my best hub by ranking is 'The Best Battery Saving Apps for Android Phones' at 98 - but that is far from being my best quality hub imo, and doesn't get anywhere near as much traffic as some of my others.

    I really think you should not delete hubs with a low score. If you look back over old hubs and they are no longer up to your improved standards in your own opinion, and they aren't getting traffic, then perhaps delete them.

    Also, not sure if this is a universale thing or just me, but I'm sure I got higher scores earlier on, and lower scores now - even for the same quality of hub.

    Telling other users which are your best hubs is a GREAT way to let content thieves know exactly which content to steal/copy.

        Agree too. It seems to be a measure of well-rounded hubs, but this doesn't necessarily bring in $$$.

    Exactly Writer Fox - I have 2 hubs scored at 100. The one on Greek names for male dogs gets around 130-150 views a day. 

    The other on the Guilty Dog Look is relatively new and gets 1-3 views a day lol.

    I have 6 hubs at 100 right now and 8 hubs in the 97-99 region. The rest are in the nineties.
    I think that traffic does influence the HubScore a little, but it is mainly to do with word count, high quality imagery and the overall interesting content of the hub. But, as Writer Fox suggested, some low-scoring hubs can receive very high traffic and still have a low HubScore.

        I have two which have a score of 99 - my bird pod tutorials but I have 28 hubs which haves scores in the 909's and my profile score went up to 100 today.  I also have 12 EC Hubs  so all good.  My high scoring hubs do receive regular traffic but the most visited hub is not my highest scoring hub even though it was for a very long time.  Very strange, there is no rhyme or reason sometimes.

          You have some great hubs sallybea, they deserve their high scores. I really like your hub on wet felting a bar of soap. I make my own soap, so I'll definitely try this. Now following you. I hope to learn more from you.

    My highest-rated Hub (does the rating actually mean anything?) is...

    ...a tie between my reviews of Chihayafuru and Death Note, both sitting at 87. Then it's my review of the third Madoka Magica film at 85, followed by my review of that godawful piece of trash, Fate/Stay Night, at an 84.

    Wow, looks like I have some work to do!! I'm only getting scores in the mid 70's right now, I think some more research is in order to see what I need to be doing to achieve higher scores.
    Well done to all those doing well with their hubs.

  14. sleepylog profile image91
    sleepylogposted 3 years ago

    Thanks to all of you for indulging me in this post. I have read a lot of your hubs and must say that I have learned a lot. I have been able to improve all of my hubs that were scored below 80 to the point where I now only have 4 hubs scored less than 80 and one of them has a score of 79, so I'm pretty happy with that. I have no doubt now that I can bring them all up to a score of 80 or more with just a bit more work.

    I know scores aren't reflective of traffic but I want to create high quality hubs that my readers will appreciate.

    My '40 ways to induce labor' hub is not my highest score. It's only a 94.

    However it has had over 1300 views today. Where as some of my higher scoring hubs have only had 50 views today.

    It doesn't matter what your score is. What matters is how many views you get.

    Although most writers won't share their highest trafficked hubs as they fear they'll be stolen.

    My Hub with the highest traffic had 1,600 views in the past 24 hours.  The Hub score used to be in the 90's, but is now 78. It's just what I said in my first post on this thread: "The HP rating system has nothing to do with good traffic, income or what Google considers high-quality content."

    This is reassuring to know, Writer Fox. Thank you for posting your experience and insight. I just took myself off eligibility for Editor's Choice awards because of forum posts suggesting better traffic without the award.
