85 is very respectable. Scores don't necessarily correlate with earnings. Yes, you may get more followers and hubber readers with a high score, but it doesn't mean that you earn more money. I think hanging around for awhile makes your score go up more than anything else, as long as your content and writing are passably good.
I hope your right, it just feels a little unusual to sometimes coast through a day or two at 85 and then add several articles answer questions and really try for several days just to never break that barrier. It seems whether I try a little or try really hard I just can't break that barrier.
My take is your Hub is not getting enough consistent traffic to push the Hubscore beyond 85.
Honestly, I've given up trying to understand hubscore
I was off of hubpages for a period of a few weeks where I didn't write or comment, but would check my page once in a while. My score fluctuated from 86 to 92. Then I come back and begin reading and commenting and posting and my score drops from 90 to 88. Go figure. Hubscore is something you really just need to not pay much attention to. Write quality hubs, find new hubbers, comment, post in forums, answer questions. Anything to both engage other writers and drive new readers to your hubs. Also, a big thing that will lower your score is to just follow a lot of people without reading or commenting their work.

My HubberScore just hit 90 today. Is that good or great? I remember my HubberScore getting into 84 just 2 weeks ago. Now, it's 90? Is it that good, or is it that great?

My hub that seems most popular with over 52,000 reads is at the bottom of my hubs with a 69 and it has been 70's so I sharpened it up some just to have it fall. How can this be? I hate to delete it but I think that is...

One person stated that a hubscore of 60 or above is good, anything below, should be deleted....What if you have a score of 62-63, and it never goes above or below, should it be deleted?
