I've notice how funny hubscore fluctuate. Look 100 .... 99.. 100..then so fort. Its not chronological numbering anymore.Hp please take not of this. Look at the scores now. Wink*
It's always been like this... It's like the system isn't updating properly or part of the system is updating before another part. I've seen it as bad as- 100, 99, 97, 99, 100, 98
I'm at 98 right now and that is the highest I have ever seen mine at. Still waiting to see if I could make it to the front page at least once hehe. I know it really doesn't mean much but I get a kick out of the littlest thing hehe.
I saw "the front page" referred to the other day but I'm so new here I'm not sure what this means exactly... is it the "By Topic" section where it shows a selection of hubs in each major category?
[Sorry to be off topic]
OT: My hubscore has been fluctuating by about 4-5 points in a day and is about 87.
Front page would probably refer to Hubbers, where every hubber is listed, in order of hubscore.
No, it was actually my picture made it to the front page. I have hit by topic before when I had first started on hubpages when I didn't have as many as I have right now. I have a new record high of 99 today. Now lets see if I can get 100.
Mine fluctuated by five points yesterday, in the course of about five minutes. I seriously don't understand the math!
good luck all ,
tomorrow i got a hubtrafiic of nearly 80 visits.
but my hubscore only changes from 8-9 increment.
I hit 100 for a few hours one day. Made a screen shot of it before it went down again. Mostly mine fluctuates between 94 and 97. As I commented on another thread, it seems to be lowest on Sunday nights, even though I'm in the forums and visiting people's hubs the same as during the week. A total mystery to me too.
I've stopped giving sh*t about my profile hubscore long ago. Besides I'm too busy leaving sarky comments and pleasuring my fans to notice
Good, that makes two of us then. And I thought I was being nacissistic
Jeeez I love it when you talk dirty Chris : )
Cris, why you pleasuring fan? Why you not pleasuring women?
My fans are mostly women, Jama. But my male fans are also worth some clicks! Whatever it takes for the realization of that AdSense dream! *wink*
OK, any way I reply now is going to be misunderstood. Just wanted to say that before I put foot in mouth. Enjoy!
1. I shouldn't try to be funny after an all nighter.
2. Time for me to go to bed.
3. Can't think of a #3. See 1 and 2.
Ah, and notice we do, Mr. Cris! I recall there was a time - and not that long ago, either, when you and I were neck and neck in the stats dept. We're still quite close in # of hubs published. But you've been really adding to your fan club. Must be all those poetry lovers who swoon over your writing:-). You know I'm joshing and am very excited for you. You'll hit 500 real soon, I know!
Mine has plummeted to 71 today, having been consistently hanging around the 85 mark. Time to write some more Hubs!
The scary thing for me is mine always seems to be highest right when I sign in. By the time I finish my session leaving comments and posts -- it's gone down 2,3 or 4 points. What kind of reward is that for participating in the community!??!!
Mighty Mom! I love your new avatar!
Edited to add: UHMMM... that was kind of off-topic! Laugh! Let me add something ON topic: I stopped wondering about the hubscore secret once I realized it added wrinkles to my otherwise lovely countenance. AHEM!
Such a shallow materialistic boy that Chris A, but ya gotta love him.
Hi guys and ladies, well although my scores also fluctuate i don't really care. I just love writing and reading peoples hubs and definitely it does not affect traffic. So relax and have fun!
Phew, 76 and rising now. I'm out of the relegation zone
Simply Amy... I guess the hubscore is a rank of how important you are to the community. It goes hand in hand with writing quality Hubs and being active within the community, and the score will come naturally if you do so
WTF... I just noticed that I've 99 now... I was replying to a comment in a hub of mine and saw 99 and thought I had the wrong hub and the wrong hubber, too! Laugh! Guess wonders never cease!
Never fear though, it's going to start sliding in a moment, since I'll be gone (again!), and I'm not sure if I'll be able and/or inclined to be online in a while. Holidays await!
So, has anyone figured out the hubscore magic yet? In the Help section it just says it's a combination between the number of hubs, visitors, and communication throughout HP itself....that still doesn't clarify how they get the friggin' numbers but it's thought-provoking huh?
Maybe they make hubscore so opaque so that we all post queries about hubscore in the forums to boost our hubscores... or something...?!
Nah, I don't get it either.
They really just draw numbers out of a hat every hour or so and make that number your hubscore until the next drawing. The line about hubscores being a combo of hub quality, socializing within the HP community, etc, is just to a myth to generate tons of threads about how scores are calculated.
Mine doesn't seem to want to go past 89 Just once I'd like to make it into the 90's!
By now I think we need to be resigned to the truth that we do not know and we are not supposed to know.
Well, of course it's a conspiracy--- but a benevolent one I think.
If anyone really knew how it worked... people would work the system to their own advantage and leave the rest of us poor schmucks dangling in the wind.
Just do it, and enjoy the roller coaster.
I'm a 95 now but by the time the robot reads my latest hub I'll probably be -95 assuming the robot can read
I hit 99 today for the very first time, lasted about an hour or two, now it's dropping again. Only took me 14 months LOL
Oh well steady increase, but I've been stuck for a while. I need a little more activity!
My true 100 score just stays there on the upper left
I've never seen that before, what does it mean?
It just means that naughty ShibaShake has too much time on her hands and she wasted it pasting numbers and white boxes on her profile picture
Sorry, was just fooling around
Sad to say but no, Cindy
Scores seem to fluctuate at whim, not sure what the reasons are.
There is only the unknown frontier unexplored my man or woman after even 95.
I've been here three weeks and I think four days (might be three). I did take the screenshot when I hit 100 tonight. I'm ranked #9 on the best hubbers page. I am in complete and utter shock!
Needless to say it's driven traffic up and I've made a bit of money today! Still not breaking $1 but nevertheless I'm a happy camper!
Stuff like this I think makes it easier to stick it out when the money isn't coming in. It's good to know that the community is spreading some Hublove!
I can say that being on the front page helped me! My hits for the day DOUBLED due to that score of 100.
I almost made it to the left of the decimal yesterday too!

What does the number next to my profile picture mean?
by Lori Colbo 6 years ago
There is a number on my profile photo. What is it and what does it mean? Mine went up to 100 today. Is that good?
by Kelly Kline Burnett 8 years ago
While I am new it appears from the little time I have had here that financial and technology Hubs earn the most money. Is there a list of the top $$$$ and $$$$$. I haven't seen the five dollar signs - do they exists?Am I wasting my time with fashion - too competitive? I am seeing...

HUB SCORE question which is puzzling me week by week?More curiosity than anything. Can anyone explain why when I recieve my 'HubPages Weekly' it says "Your highest HubScore: 87" and yet on my Profile Page the score next to my photo does not appear to have dropped below 95...give or take...
by earnestshub 9 years ago
I just finished my fiftieth hub. Am I on a harder scoring system now? My profile page hubscore dived today from 97 to 92 in two hours.. Have I done something wrong? All I have done since is comment on a couple of pages, so what changed it so drastically. I have seldom been this low.My hubpages on...
by Darrin Perez 7 years ago
...and I just saw it drop to 95. I think I died a little on the inside. I want to get to 100...[all the cool hubbers]* are at 100! :'(*yes, epic hyperbole, I know...couldn't help myself. Anyways, what's the highest personal Hubscore you have ever gotten?
