    Hi,

    I am curious to know what's the highest score you've ever got for a hub. Mine is 93.

    Please share your proudest achievements!

      I have several that have hit 100. They never stay there though.

        That’s great to hear Sherry, congratulations! The fluctuating score system is rather confusing...

          They fluctuate because it's a ranking system rather than a scoring system.  Our Hubs are ranked relative to each other.  With lots of Hubs being added every day, there's no way it can't fluctuate.

      I have had several which have hit 100 but like Sherry said, they fluctuate depending on traffic (I think)

        Hi Sally,

        That’s fab!

      I have just run an experiment on a hub that was not featured because of “spammy” elements. It had a score of about 60. I worked out that the supposed spammy element was a link to my website, so I deleted the link. Lo and behold, the hub was then featured shortly after and within a few days got a score of 80. Food for thought...

        Indeed, HubPages frowns on self-promotion and will unfeature any hub it deems to be promotional.

        You don't need to be concerned about hubscores, they really aren't terribly important. I've never paid much attention, but seeing as you asked... I have currently four at 100, six at 99 and seven at 98.

        Write informative, well formatted, well-researched hubs and scores will take care of themselves smile

        Edit: Just so you understand that hub score has nothing to do with performance, one of my 99s has 3 visits today, a total of only 760 views during its lifetime, and I wrote it in 2012. Not one of my better performers.

          Thank you for your comment and congratulations on getting high scores.

          Yes, scores are not as important as traffic, although in my case there seems to be a correlation.

          Why? Those scores have nothing to do with traffic or earnings. I just checked my page and have a half dozen with 100 scores, but also have plenty of hubs that get more traffic and have lower scores. That is what really matters.

            Thank you for your insight. I had the impression that high-scoring hubs would perform better

    I write really short blogs, so mine is 66. I also curse and don't usually follow SEO BS. Hubpages is a place that I use for just expressing myself.

    Some hit 100, but they don't stay there. They wonder through the 90s...

      Hi Tess

      That’s really good, you’ve definitely worked really hard!

  8. janshares profile image95
    jansharesposted 8 months ago

    I've had one 100 in the past. Keeping in mind that they fluctuate constantly, current highest is 95. Lowest, by the way, is 69 (a poem).

    1. paolaenergya profile image94
      paolaenergyaposted 8 months agoin reply to this

      Excellent. So it seems so far that longer hubs tend to have higher scores.

      1. janshares profile image95
        jansharesposted 8 months agoin reply to this

        Usually but not necessarily. My hub that reached 100 was a recipe. It's much shorter than my informational hubs but was very popular and unique at the time. Many factors are involved in hub score and can change over time.

        1. paolaenergya profile image94
          paolaenergyaposted 8 months agoin reply to this

          Yes, popularity and niche subjects are great for traffic

    95 and 96, but they're on my least visited hubs. My most visited hubs average around a score of 90.

  11. Glenn Stok profile image98
    Glenn Stokposted 8 months ago

    I presently have 8 hubs with a score of 100. Another 8 hubs are at 99. My average is 91. 

    As others have said, the score is not related to traffic. I see no relationship to traffic or to view duration either. As Marisa had said, it's ranking system related to other hubs (That makes sense).

      Well, whicever way we look at it, you’re doing well writing high quality hubs!

  12. Jessie L Watson profile image93
    Jessie L Watsonposted 8 months ago

    92. Then again I've only been here less than two months. I'm not even sure what it signifies. I notice that it will go down at seemingly inappropriate times like, say, having spent 13 hours writing then publishing an article. "Nice article you have there, lets feature it then drop your score". Okay? lol. I guess I'm more concerned about quality.

    1. paolaenergya profile image94
      paolaenergyaposted 8 months agoin reply to this

      Yes, scores are unpredictable. As long as hubs get featured and get good traffic, that’s all that matters. I just wanted to understand more (and was simply curious to see how others are doing on the platform!)

  13. TheShadowSpecter profile image89

    I made it to 92.  However, I only have 14 Hubs published on my account.

    Mine is 65. I never really pay attention to it. I just write. At +100 articles it seems to be working. I found something I love and just stuck went it

      Doing what you love is all that matters!

    I had been under the impression that scores were based on quality of the hub which if they were not updated regularly would decrease over time.  I update when I think to but not nearly regularly enough but have recently noticed hub scores fluctuating with many going up despite no updates.  I have also had a number of 100 score hubs since I've been actively writing (for about a year and a half) and a bunch in the 90's though as others have noted they all fluctuate sometimes widely.  That being said I should point out that for Google rankings it's important your hubs are accurate and up to date.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image98
      Marisa Wrightposted 8 months agoin reply to this

      HubScore is made up of:

      QAP score
      Length
      Number of comments
      Traffic
      Your Hubber Score

      So you can see, apart from the QAP score, it isn't based on quality.
