How To You Keep Your Hub Scores High

  1. profile image49
    badcompany99posted 8 years ago

    Just noticed that the Hub score decreases after a period of time, I know learning all the time. Also noticed your overall Hubscore goes up and down, so what does one do to make them get higher or just remain constant ?

      Whitney05posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      The hub rank fluctuates depending on the number of hubs you have and their traffic, the number of comments you post on other hubs, participation in the forums, making hub requests in the Q&A section, and just participating in the site overall. So keep participating in the forums, and you can potentially increase your hub score, but I don't think there's a real method to keep the score constant.

        That pretty much sums it up! My HubScore was holding steady around 90-94 and I hadn't published in quite some time. Now, in the past week I've published a few Hubs and participated in the community some more and my HubScore (at the time of writing this response) is a 97 - so it does go to show it is not just one factor, but many. I think the only way you could keep it constant is if you manage to stay at 100!


        Actually, Marisa, I do think it can reflect (not effect) your earning ability somewhat. In the sense that a higher HubScore usually translates to more traffic, which also translates to more money!


        Actually, now that you mention it, that's probably very true. I'd be interested in knowing where the HubPages home page stands in respects to pageviews (compared to other popular pages).

          Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          The home page probably gets a lot of pageviews because every time a Hubber logs on, that's where they start.  But that's not relevant, because Hubbers aren't (usually) paying traffic.

          Most of your paying traffic comes from search engines, and that traffic goes straight to your Hub.

    LOL waynet!

    My hubscore hit a high of 94 yesterday. I'd been here five days.

    I write a lot. My intention in writing as I do isn't to increase hubscore (though it's nice) or revenue (VERY nice!) but to get things out of my system. I'm a writer. Writers have to write.

    It has, quite fortunately for me, caused me to have income for the past two days. Given that this is my seventh day here, I'm pretty happy with that record!

    You can't get a HubScore to remain constant.  The system isn't designed for them to ever be static.  Each Hub is going to wind up fluctuating over a range.

    And here's my thoughts on How To Improve Your HubScore.

  5. skydiver profile image71
    skydiverposted 8 years ago

    Mine is like a yo-yo, up and down anywhere between 75-90! I think my problem at the minute is that I don't have many Hubs, just 3-4, so that may be one reason why it fluctuates a lot! Even if I had 10+ I'm sure that would help keep it slightly more stable.

    1. Eaglekiwi profile image74
      Eaglekiwiposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      yep same for me ,in fact I scored high ( well I thought so) hahaha...91 for my first hub ,then bombed on my next so bit like everyday miracles said...I just love writing ,eventually once I get all the fluff of my chest maybe I will develop a writing style..everyone has one or simply and I probably prefer this method...it meant something to at least one or two people.

      Being honest though money would be welcome , but as I made 15c I can see changes are ahead ...or my next hub will be on surviving Poverty

    I was thrilled one day to have hit 100, only to have it drop back down in a few hours:o( I have no idea what I did to get it to spike for a time, but enjoyed it while it lasted.

        Hi Darkside, I would like to showcase some of my writing and promote some websites I have.  I notice Hubpages ranks very well in the search engines.  I think this is because the rating system keeps the quality of the writing high. I will need to work to get my score up!

        1. Everyday Miracles profile image90
          Everyday Miraclesposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Hubpages does penalize overly-promotional hubs, so be careful. I've mentioned one of my sites a few times and have gotten at least one e-mail about it, but that really wasn't my intention.

          Hubpages *is* a great way to share your writings though, and I, for one, am doing pretty well with it according to Analytics and my url trackers smile

          1. Jules Wright profile image60
            Jules Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Wow, Everyday Miracles, you are off to a great start!  Yes I don't plan to produce overly promotional hubs.  I think the key is to produce good quality hubs and then you can provide links out to other good information that relates to the hub.

    I notice that my overall score went between 95 and 86 in a couple days and my hubs scores just dropped dramatically when I stopped driving traffic for two days. Is that normal?

    1. Misha profile image76
      Mishaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Traffic and traffic dynamics are the main components of hubs scores. So yes, it is normal for hubscores to go down when traffic drops. smile

      shreekrishnaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      i don't know why this happens ,

      but whenever we get high traffic for 2-3 ays ,

      then it decreses & remains 3/4 ,
      hubscore decreases rapidly.

      this is the problem of software that calulates the hubscore.

      there is some micoding in program.

    Marisa Wrightposted 8 years ago

    The main thing is not to get too hung up on your Hubscore.  It's not that relevant to your earning ability, or the amount of readers you get outside of HubPages.

    Yes, a high Hubscore will get you on the front page, but very few people arrive at HubPages via the front page!

    I have the same issue - Personal hubscore good, inidvidual hubscores on hubs decrease.  I think it is almost all traffic driven.  More traffic, higher score.  Makes you want to promote so that is a good thing.

    Janettaposted 8 years ago

    Just keep writing hubs!!!  Original content scores better and likely draws more views. Most of us seem to be here for the same reason which is to write and get our thoughts and feelings out there, so without even trying, your hub score should go up. As long as you keep up the hubs, that is. I don't know how commenting and forum participation helps, but it probably does. 90% of my hubtivity has been writing hubs and my score has risen continuously. I haven't had a ton of comments or anything, just kept publishing. smile

    I've noticed that it will jump by like 10 if you are below 70 just by making a new hub.  I would imagine they reward people with a higher score the more they use any of the features in Hubpages.

    Well my author score has fluctuated between 85 and 92, but one of my hubs "The other side of subprime loans" which came 2nd Hubnuggets competition has a hubscore hovering between 90 and 99. This particular hub initially did not attract much traffic but after a week or so, the hub score reached 99. I have been here since 3 weeks and have so far published just 3 hubs and 1 of them was voted among the 5 best hubs from the newcomers. So I can safely conclude that the quality of hubs that matter and not the quantity.

    Ooh - I got to 98 for the first time for about an hour and a half today, but then I wrote some Hubs and it went down to 97 (my previous all-time high).  I'm expecting it to be about 92 by tomorrow (because that's how it seems to go)  smile.  If there's any way to keep it even sort of constant I don't know what it is.

    I still can't figure out how it works, because you get a lot of traffic and comments but you don't get the score, a new hubber comes in and within a week is 100.  I don't get how it works, people have explained but what they say and what happens doesn't gel.

      not necessarily. I've seen other noob's with lower scores than that. It helps if you put up a hub right away and gt active right away. The more you participate in the community, and write good original hubs, the higher your score will get. smile

    I'm clearly not very clever with hubs.  I like to write and I write what I feel and enjoy.  I don't look at tag words and try to build something around them and I don't make sure I hit the hot topics on purpose.

    That's probably why that after two months I haven't had a score above 84; oh well.
