      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!

    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.

        The one that was 83 dropped down to 76 after I edited it, but now it is at 81.

        A hub I published yesterday is at 84. 

        Up and down...

    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.

    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.

  15. LindaSmith1 profile image59

    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.

    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 smile.

        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.

    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.

    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.

  25. chef-de-jour profile image96
    chef-de-jourposted 8 years ago

    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.

  27. SAQIB6608 profile image66
    SAQIB6608posted 8 years ago

    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.

  29. stuff4kids profile image92
    stuff4kidsposted 8 years ago

    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?

    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.

  39. Nick DeGeorge profile image60
    Nick DeGeorgeposted 8 years ago

    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?
    Very Confused!

      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.

      Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      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.

  40. LindaSmith1 profile image59

    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.

    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.

  49. Billie Kelpin profile image85
    Billie Kelpinposted 8 years ago

    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.

      1. rebekahELLE profile image87
        rebekahELLEposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        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.

      2. Billie Kelpin profile image85
        Billie Kelpinposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        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.
