My highest score so far is 100, the next few are 99 and so on.
My highest Hubscore is 100, but it "yo-yos" a lot, sometimes dropping to the high eighties.
I ask people to vote on my hubs (up or down) if they think they are of benefit to them. The high scoring hubs are "How To" guides, so I often wonder whether viewers vote them down out of spite if the information provided doesn't help them, and this has some influence on the score!
I look forward to seeing what other hubbers scores are mine change constantly.
Funny you should ask. Until recently I had several at 100 and many more in the 90's. Then came the time about 6-8 weeks ago where any little edit caused a huge drop in the score.
2 Days ago my highest scoring hub was at 98. I fixed two Amazon capsules that were displaying erroneous ads, and the score dropped to 76 for my trouble. It is also my best producing hub. Go figure.
My highest is currently at 99 but all my scores plummeted across the board about six weeks ago. Very discouraging!
My highest score is 83 and lowest score is 69. What can I do to improve my score?
I am the proud owner of a 97. But then there's that pesky 66...
Mine change with the wind it seems. I have articles that are 99 now but were 69 a few weeks ago, and vice versa. I no longer pay too much attenton to those scores since they have no effect on my earnings. All I focus on is traffic. However if your highest rating is 70, you may want to look at what you may be doing wrong.
My "Top 10 Worst Dubbed Anime" blog and my "Black Ops 2: Origins" blog have both hit 100 every month, and my other zombie guides (except Myths Debunked) have all been between 91-99.
Why can't my ramen recipe break 90?
Currently 95. They hop up and down between 92 and 100 trading places between my hub about Ukraine Online Dating..., Dutch Proverbs... and Facts About Bubblews:...
It takes time to get more control over the figures and to understand what scores well and what less.
96. I just updated that hub, and it moved up to that score. Really surprised me.
Currently 81 but was 88 and I now have a 57 that was in the 70's when I first published it a few weeks ago. However in spite of my individual hubscores dropping my own score has gone up. Though I do appear to drop a few points if I publish 2 hubs on the same day.
I had one that was in the 90's for quite awhile, but took a sudden dive to the low 80's. The scores fluctuate so much that I don't pay attention anymore unless one hits the 50's or below.
Currently 96 but last week 98. Fluctuates all over the place. I must say I don't understand the scoring system.
I have a couple of inexplicable ones that are 100 currently, and the ones that had been at or around 100 consistently for months dropped down to 97 and 93. No rhyme or reason to these scores it seems at times. I just watch them now more for amusement and have given up trying to make sense of them .
I think there is some sort of rhyme/reason, but we don't know what it is, so I'm with you on watching them more for amusement. I think relevancy has a lot to do with the highest scoring hubs. I also think HP pushes those to the top in regard to current ad campaigns. My highest was 98 late afternoon, then I made a few edits and it dropped to 97.
85 high and 63 low, I had a 93 at on point but it's gone.
90 at the moment. But that can change within the next 10 minutes lol
My highest hub score is 91. Even though I know that hubscores don't mean much of anything, it is still fun to watch them and try to get them higher.
On this account 96. I do think though that hubscore is a weird measure of quality. Some hubs I'm considering deleting for low quality are in the 80s. So don't sweat it.
My highest is 98 and has stayed there for about a week, at least.
Mine seems to be in the 70's with some around there and one I posted today going in at 69. Still trying to work, out how these scores work but as long as I do my best they should do well.
I have one at 100 and several more in the 90s. Hub score can be on a roller coaster at times, those you think are average go nuts and score 90 or more, others that you're really proud of nosedive and never return!
So I'd say be aware of the hub score and try and improve your hubs if possible - don't dilute them - and don't pin your life on them, don't get depressed if certain hubs you feel are the bees knees stay fixed in the 70s or 80s.
The secret formula for hub score? It remains a secret and a mystery and probably won't ever be revealed!
There should be much less fluctuation in hub score and hubber score. Many writers keep these in mind. Sudden drop is very discouraging.
I started off with scores 50s, by now some of my hubs are in 70s. HP score can be improved by consistent effort and genuineness. The novelty of the article and attaching relatively colourful pictures/maps or videos accordingly.
Never be afraid of scores. If you write genuine and original That's what really matters. My highest score is 76 to be hones uptill nowt.
My highest score is 81, average is 69, lowest is 57. I noticed that score is highly connected with word count. More words lead to higher score.
Along with most folks here, a couple at 100 and the rest in the mid-90s and up, but that's after a general trend downward from a few weeks ago. I don't think hub score really matters, does it? We don't know how it is determined, we don't know what it means, we have no knowledgeable control over it.
What does matter is traffic. Because traffic means two important things:
1) People are reading your writing
2) You're earning a few pennies
Surely either one or both of these (depending on your priorities) are all that really matters?
I've only published 5 hubs so far but my highest score was 82 I believe.
My current range is 64-96.
Which one is the 64? It's my one and only Editors Choice hub. I kid you not.
However, as long as the money keeps coming in, I don't care.
I had one at 94 on this account, but it dropped down and now another hub is at 93. On my other account, the highest score is 75.
I now have one at 100 for a few days ...we'll see how long it lasts.
It's comforting to read that scores are doing some kind of yo-yo dance. Mine too. They start off lower than I think they should be but then rise up like bread dough. They have yet to sink (cross my fingers). I have noticed that when I write about a subject that is less covered and use words that describe it that are even less common, the score comes out really high. My Professional Victims piece is an example and it has kept rising.
I am not sure how any of this works I have 11 hubs the highest score was 88 but it's now 80 I have had a hub rated 75 drop to 58? If I go on vacation the scores drop.
Why can not hub pages describe the criteria they score on and if the scores are not relevant why have them? It appears when I enhance one hub it rises but the others fall?
I rather focus on new content and enhancing my income rather than tweaking articles to keep up a score. I can imagine the time if I had 50 hubs to adjust the articles to maintain a score .
Is it also my impression that the site favors short articles with pics and videos over chapters in a story? Thus Game of Thrones or Hunger Games would have a low score because no photos and vids?
Nick - please don't spend any effort trying to appease the hub score scorer. Focus on new articles. The hub scores seem to have a mind of their own; mine are in constant turmoil. Just worry about page views and how to improve those.
Solaras gives you good advice. One thing to look at is the section at the top right hand corner of your Hubs (in edit mode). These are the "Stellar Hub" guidelines and the more boxes you can tick, the more likely it is that your HubScore will rise.
I have hubs, where almost every box is ticked, in the 60's.
I was surprised to see a 99 on a hub that previously scored in the 70's.
I had one Hub that scored 100 for almost a week, now it's slowly moving down.
I had one start at 96 which was strange because they usually start low and then go up. Then it went down but stayed in the high 80's. Right now my highest score is 90. I'm impressed with you guys who had scores of 100. something to op for.
Congrats to those who have hubs in the 100. The highest I have so far was 96. I still have lots to edit after the transfer from Squidoo . I edited one which was in the higher 70s and then it moved to the bottom 61. I just have to be patient I suppose and just keep at my edits.
90 definitely seeing them rise when I take the time to edit and reevaluate good content. I still have a lot of work ahead of me.
I have one at 100 and then three at 97. One of my hubs that use to be 100 is now at 69. My lowest hub is 63. But all of this fluctuates all of the time and I generally don't spend too much attention to it.
Glad you asked this question. I never noticed much, but now when I look, I see a 92 on one "content rich" article that has 20,000 some views and a 92 on a short piece of fiction (just a story without the "content rich" thing going on), that has a measely 231 some views, and THAT one also has a 92.0 I really don't get it. All my other hubs are in the 70s or lower. I haven't written an article here in months. I guess having never gotten 100 is a big disincentive, but then I never really noticed, so I guess I'm just not enthused to write here anymore, but I like being on the website! A huge "yay" and congratulations to the people who do write and get great scores and who do get a bit of an income. It just doesn't work for me.
Forget the scores please tell me how you drive 20,000 page views to one article and over what time period was that! Amazing...
I'm sure there are veteran hubbers with over 100,000 views on some of their hubs. My highest traffic hub has over 90,000 views, and that's over a period of almost 4 years. There are hubbers that gain that many views in much less time. That particular hub is nothing special, but it ranked very high for a couple of years, and it's on an evergreen, highly searched topic. Now it's moved down in the SERPS.
Well, 20,000 is over 2 1/2 years. That means that only about 700 views a month. I imagine lots of those are just robots and not readers.
What did I do to drive traffic to that article? Nothing. It's my "How to Publish a Children's Book" article, and it's getting outdated now. I try to update it, but the technology in the ebook publishing field is moving FAST!
I wrote that article for a contest hubpages had. I tried very hard to do everything right to at least win a little prize in the contest and didn't. The title drives the traffic I think and some of the content. I really have no idea. On our business website where we have online learning games and sell educational software, I can see what people are clicking and know where they're coming from and how they got there. Here, I have no idea.
I make a paltry sum of around $2 a month here. UGH! When I have time, I'm going to take some of my stuff that ties together and put it in an ebook and try to sell it that way. I asked hubpages staff if I needed to take my my articles off here, but from what I'm getting, if you publish here first, you can publish somewhere else. I might have that mixed up, so don't quote me on that one. So traffic and scores don't mean a whole boat load of anything unless you don't need the money and just get enjoyment and gratification from just being published.
Currently 88 and lowest 65 but the highest was 94 and lowest 61. The strange thing to me is that they all fly all over the place and that they are never consistent. I have started to ignore where they go. My average is currently 78.

It continues to baffle me how the Hubs I've written with the least amount of effort and attention to detail end up being the highest scoring Hubs out of all my content. Every time I write a Hub my score upon featured status is immediately around 65 and my scores never dip below that, rarely do they...

Hello Hubbers! I'm fairly new to HubPages, I've been here about a week now and love the community so far! Anyway, I was thinking, since we all have the same goal; to make money, get readers and help people, I thought I would make a topic for us all to discuss the best places to post our HubPages...

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 efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

Hubber scores do not reflect anything but some weird algorithm that is not in sync with anything. My score just went sixteen points down. My views are up and I am featured way more that 140 times.But what I noticed was Billybuc. He is an 88. What? He is the highest ranking site at Hub pages. This...

I have been writing a series of hubs called Poems From the Porch where I ask for suggestions of topics from my readers to write poems about. In every hub I write four or five poems based on those suggestions. I am not up to the ninth in the series and it is proving very popular. However, I have a...
