    It's currently sitting at 67, and I want it to be higher. I've heard people say not to stress about author scores, but the competitive side of me wants a 100. Do I just write more/better hubs?

    Author score isn't just how many Hubs you have or how good they are, but also how much traffic they draw and whether they earn anything.

    With the site itself degrading so much, I'm not sure anyone could give reliable advice towards such a goal anymore.

      Hubber score no longer depends on traffic or how much your hubs earn. (If it did, you would still have a 100 score. I did too until HP instituted this new algorithm.)

    Write more good quality Hubs and make sure the titles are search friendly.

      That's not enough, because things like participation in the forums make a difference to score as well. 

      "Factors used to compute Hubber Score include:

      The collective HubScores of your Hubs
      Your activity in the Forums
      Your support of other Hubbers through comments
      The number and quality of Questions you ask
      The number and quality of Answers you have given"

      The composition has changed over time - I rarely comment on Hubs and I never go near the Q&A section, yet my score used to hover around 99.

        Great advice, I really need to get involved more.

          Well, it depends what your goals are.  If you want a good author score, go for it - just be aware that scores mean nothing.  They certainly don't do anything to help you get more readers!
