New Hubber Question: Hubscore

    Hey everyone!  My name is Brandon and I am a new Hubber from Houston, Texas! I have a brief question about hubscores on the profile and on my articles and how they differ.

    For example, I noticed today as people read my hubs, my hubscore would rise on the article, but also noticed I still have a single-digit hubscore on my profile.

    How do I get the needle moving on my profile's hubscore?

      Just do more stuff smile

      Make more hubs, visit other people's, vote/comment on them, post on the forums, etc. It'll pop up really fast

      Welcome to HP! Keep writing good stuff and your scores will keep rising. Your present score (9) will soon be suffixed with a 0 (zero) which would show as 90 smile smile

    Though the actual hub scores still baffles me.  My biggest piece of trash hub got a score of 100 today.  ???

    ok...here we go again....to raise hubscore/draw views/acquire fans --

    keep active--meaning post in forums, comment on others hubs, respond to comments on your own hubs,and publish hubs

    be a part of the community--rate up a fellow hubber and move around reading hubs

    publish good quality stuff

    Take a look around-go see what high scoring hubbers do. Just keep in mind, that while there are things you can do to raise your score, there are also things that will lower it. Famming (spam fanning) and cut and paste hubs are biggies.

    So, just get active for a day or two and see what happens. like the others said--your brand new, give it  time big_smile

    Most people get the whole Hubscore thing back to front.

    A higher Hubscore won't get you anywhere. It won't get you extra readers, and it won't get you extra money.

    On the other hand, if you're getting more readers and your Hubs have good earning potential, your Hubscore will go up.

    Good information all thank you.

    While a hubscore probably won't do anything I see it as a matter of pride, and probably why they added in the score to begin with. As for getting extra readers well I am sure people browsing would be less inclined to read a person with an 11 (my current score at this post) vs some of the 100s and 99s out there.

    Just when I think I understand how a scores arrived at .
    It doesnt make sense again. lol.

    I guess its just a lil bit of everything ,but mostly (I think) to do with quality written hubs.

    Having a high profile seems to help ,the longer youre here ,the greater your reputation etc.

    All the best Brandon, and you have a good score starting out.

    You will learn alot from others and use the search option too to find out all the 'tips an guides' to producing effective hubs.
