I noticed an appreciable number of hubbers with 100% hub score,please can you share some of the steps you took to achieve this greatness? Congrats to you all!
I've seen my author score hit 100 a few times. The steps aren't anything secret and if you think they are, you're only fooling yourself.
Fill them with original, useful and interesting content.
Make sure your tags are really relevant and focused to the topic of the hub. (this often means less tags and not more)
Do a touch of hub promotion to help get traffic.
Don't spend lots of time sweating your Hubscore.
Repeat all those steps. Again and again.
When I hit 100, it's a pleasant surprise, but nothing that's under my control.
Hi Acco how is it hanging well I made 99, I am sure it may have got to 100, I never actually saw it but maybe I was sleeping at the time and missed it, these things are possible. x0x
At the time of writing, mine is 100, but no-one stays there for ever because there's an intentional randomness in the algorithm, to keep the 'charts' interesting.
I don't have 'the' answer, and am not among the financially successful hubbers because for me it's a writing outlet, not a business venture.
So what do I do? Mostly I aim to write original and interesting (to some!) content, typically 1200 to 1500 words per article. I try to write well, because that's the whole point of the exercise. I usually include 2 to 6 photographs, preferably taken myself, but this isn't always possible. I don't use videos at all. They're just not my thing. I'd love to use audio capsules, but Hubpages don't support them (hint!). I'm fairly careful with categories and groups. I try to answer all comments promptly and respectfully as people have taken the trouble to write them.
Apart from hubs, I'm usually involved in one or two forum threads which may or may not be helping too, but it's fun.
Was that any help?
I have no idea how it happens! In one day I can reach 99 or 100 and before the day is over drop to 94, like yesterday! I understand it has to do with how active one is overall - participating in forums, creating new hubs, gaining friends, being friends, commenting, etc. But after that I think they must spin a wheel every hour or something, LOL! Just kidding about the wheel - maybe.
I do all you said Paraglider but only ever go up as far as 99, then I drop. The more I comment, the more I drop
The hubscore is up and down like a whores drawers. Honest. Ignore it. Pay it no mind. Maybe it will sulk and whack you to 100 to grab your attention.
I've had it a few times but I honestly don't know why or how. And I don't bother worrying about it either.
See - like with Cindy - sometimes I'm dead active. It drops. Other times I'm equally as active - it shoots to the top. That's a combination of forum posting, comments and rating, either publishing a new hub or tweeking a published one.
Then - there's the time when I do absolutley bugger all. I wasn't on a couple of weeks ago for over 48 hours. Again, 100.
Hubscore = weird.
NB - I also think the hubteam play hubpoker. And we're the chips
I get to 100 quite a lot, then it falls again. 100 yesterday, 95 today. It just happens.
I think there is a significant random element. I drift from around 93 to 100. No disrepect to frogsdropping but if a reptile's waste products can make 100 then it can't be that much of an achievement!
I'm rarely - if ever offended. But that was a tad uncalled for Rik. Do get over yourself.
why has no one pointed out that a frog is an amphibian! ...cmon!
frogdropping - so sorry I offended you. I forgot for a moment that although your blood may be cold you probably have a warm heart and real feelings. Forgive me for my insensitivity. You are clearly the most successful reptile on HubPages and I for one want to live in a world where frogs have the same opportunities as the rest of us
Rik - I wasn't offended. Like I said - it seemed a bit below the belt. Thankyou for returning and your apology
My score was 100 most of the day today, but has fallen to 98 at the time I'm writing this. I used to stay around 95-98, never quite seeing 99 or 100. It's really only been in the last month that I've finally seen 100 for the first time. Now, I see it almost once a day. I still flunctuate like everyone else.
What do I contribute it to? I don't know. I do have 3 times the daily page views now than I did two months ago. But, I attribute that to going from 65 hubs to just over 100 in the hub challenge.
My advice: Write, write, write good original material
Participate in the forums
Leave comments for others
Reply promptly to comments left on your hub
Above all else...have FUN and be NICE!
I've had 100, but as I'm writing this it's down to 95 (kind of my new "low"). I'd say almost the same things KCC said (except that I didn't participate in the Hub challenge). I don't really think I'm doing anything different than I was when I was getting - like - the 91 to 96 range. I've had some time off recently, and I've participated in the forums as a result of it. Hitting the 100 is pretty recent for me, so maybe it's that.
You guys are so nice and wonderful, to be honest, i have learnt some tricks here and i must say thank you. Keep revealing, i'm glad with you all,may the Almighty God bless you all?
My last one was my only hub to hit the 100 and I think it was because of.
1.Topic must be something that helps the reader.
2.Members joining in on the comments with help as well.
3.Deff replying and helping every reply.
4.I also think if the Hub makes money on Adsense then it also climbs in Hubscore, just my theory.
5. I think too much Forum Activity reduces all scores, again just my theory.
6. 15 really good related Tags.
I haven't reached 100 yet but I am at 94 today (my highest so far, yeh for me ) But reading this knowledge exchange, I am running back to my hubs to make some changes...thanks for the ideas.
1. Get active, everywhere. In your Hubs, their Hubs, and in the forums.
2. Participate in "Answers"
3. Get good at Search Engine Optimization, I.E., tagging.
4. Go to various places on the 'net, and spread your work. The more click throughs outside of any particular domain, the higher the Hub score.
5. Keep a small number of fans to fans--it's a circle that will increase slowly, but most definitely, especially when you communicate with them.
6. Reply to your replies on Hubs, be it yours or others.
Keep in mind, this is all of my observations--which are admittedly not an authority, but these are things that have kept my score and others high.
This is all great advice. I think I'm on the right track. My hubs float between 50 and 89 as I write and my personal hubscore is 94. The highest that's been is 97. Would love to see it touch 100 , who wouldn't?
We have yet to hit 100 - our maximum to date is 97 overall. Somedays we have individual hubs over 90, but these go up and down.
Perhaps the answer is steady activity on all fronts - new hubs, good hubs, receiving comments, giving comments and moderate participation in forums.
Oh - and having your stars in line with the moon on a Tuesday.
I have yet to hit 100 myself. The best source to understand hubpages is prolly the hubpages itself. Their faq is pretty clear. I'd read this carefully:
It says here:
My guess is that the participation in the forums is mainly so people see what you say and want to check you out, so it's not really the activity itself that increases your hubscore - only the traffic you get out of it.
The main focus appears to be a good balance of quality and quantity - hubs, traffic, and thumbs up. For example, a good balance of quality and quantity in terms of the hub itself: The quantity of the hub (how many word count, paragraphs, etc) and the quality of the hub content (unique, well-formed, in depth, etc).
That's my impression from all this, anyway. As an aside, I was fascinated to learn about Author's Status, which hubscore has great relevance upon. In my first week of my first two hubs immediately after signing up, I received a score between 74-80. According to the chart, in having fewer than 19 hubs, that meant I was average to prodigy. But then again, I also noticed that there are many that are prodigies. It's just interesting how they compute that.
Meh, I really need to write something else. This is an interesting thread, btw.
And I've done little or nothing around hubpages again due to having to juggle far too many balls at the moment and mine's risen once again. Seriously - it's weird
*wanders off. It's juggling. Has to be*
As I posted elsewhere, there's no point in stressing about HubScore anyway.
A good HubScore doesn't bring you success. A good HubScore won't improve your readership or earn you more money.
In essence, a good Hubscore is a reflection of your success (or otherwise).
I've only posted three hubs and my scores have been in the 75-80 percent range and I have one fan. I guess that it just takes patience and as people get to know you they will read more of your articles and therefore boosting your hub score. I'm mostly into writing short stories but one of my hubs is about my hobby of beading. I'm going to try the diversity approach and see what will happen. All I can say is good luck.

I've been here almost 3 yrs and would like an honest evaluation of some of my hubs. I'm concerned about my low hubscore. I continually study hubs at the learning center, participate in forums, comment on hubs, re-title and revise hubs, and have reached over 300,000 page views. I...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

My hub scores range from 65 to 87 as of the last time I looked. My average is 73. To me it seems like I have a "C" average. I'm disappointed and discouraged. I am doing everything that is recommend to get a good score.It is disheartening not to get a feedback. For...

It has been such a fun exercise to participate in Hubpages author Annart's shorty story challenge. She posted a picture of her own painting and asked everyone to write a story from it. It has been amazing to watch so many talented writers rise to the challenge and produce incredible...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?
by Tina 12 years ago
So I will post a few links to my hubs for you to look over. (Please??) Would like some commentary on my writng style and if the hub is interesting enough. Seems as though I have an acceptable hub score but not a lot of fans.Please tell me what you feel.. I won't cry .. much ...
