    What's the highest your Hubscore has ever been?.. and what contributed to it being at its highest?

    The highest my Hubscore has ever been was 98 when I first started writing hubs here on Hubpages. This was due to writing high quality hubs with lots of valuable content, as well as people reading them and voting them up and useful.

    The highest my hubs have been was 95 and 93. Why I mention 2 scores check below smile

    The one that reached 95 used to get just 2 visits a day and still gets anywhere between 0 - 2 but still stays the highest!!

    The other gets plenty of traffic compared to my total traffic and stays about 80 on an average but moves as high up as 89 at least once a day & the highest I spotted it was a 93

    My score has gone as high as a hundred a couple of times although it never stayed there.  I can't isolate any particular contributing factor.  I suspect that HubPages have built in a random factor into their algorithm and possibly also delays the change of your score due to your actions so it might be difficult to figure out how each factor affects the score.

    I think the best thing to do is simply to stay active in the community and to publish good quality hubs regularly.

    100 has been my highest, so far. (I keep hoping for more, but, alas...)
    It comes and goes, and I have only a faint and unreliable idea of why.
    Quite possibly, it is more likely to come if you stick around for a couple of years.  I have also noted that it  is not necessarily related to earnings or views, so it is not as significant as you might think.

    ninety nine would be my highest score, and what contributed to that score is only known by he or she who created the author scoring algorithm for Hubpages.com

    Everything else said by anyone here would be speculation at best, and the most objective bits of self flattery, or misrepresentation of data.

    But don't let my study discourage your thinking about the subject. 

    The one day results of that ninety nine of a hundred score was something else altogether, and rather than guess at what it might be, I could just tell you - it was a great big one day increase in traffic.

    95 is my highest.  I have not a clue as to how I did that.  I write, answer questions, and respond to comments.

    I used to reach 100 on a regular basis, but now I can't seem to reach that for anything.

    I had one that sat at 100 for a short time. I have no idea what caused it.  It is a very simplistic article on saving money in hard times.

    93, and that was for one day.  My score ranges from 89-92.  I could Hub hop, make all kinds of comments, and participate in the Forum, but these are the scores I end up with.  I just keep writing.  I'm not writing so I can get a high Hubscore.  That would be a waste of time.

    Hi LVidoni5, the highest my Hubscore has ever been was 88. And the reason it was that high is because at the time I was posting my hub-links in the public online forum sites (back-linking), along with comments.

    For a few hours my score was 97. I couldn't tell you why it rose that high, although I do note that my score tends to drop after I have published hub. No one knows. You have to participate a lot to get it past 80, but if you participate too often, you can't get above a score in the early 90s.

    Highest Hub Score - 94
    Highest Hubber Score - 96

    How it gets there? Organic traffic, impression time and votes - Plus, whatever crazy formula is thrown in there. smile

    HattieMattieMaeposted 6 years ago

    Well I've had it up to 98 a few different times, but notice some times like the last two weeks hardly wrote any hubs or did anything and it went up. So It's not always accurate in my opinion. I never have gone by that! There is times when you participate, vote on others, reade etc, and it goes down. Some times I think it just depends on who reads and whether they vote, more than anything. lol

    My highest Hub score is 84.
    Higher Hubber score is 90

    Today is the first time my hubber score has reached 90. One thing I noticed for the increase in the Hub score and hubber score is the increase in the Hub Karma score. Earlier, I was not using any links in my hubs. Recently I started linking my hubs to relevant hubs written by other authors. This interlinks has increased my Hub Karma score and in turn increased by Hub and hubber score.

    I've been one hundred a few times but never really figured out why. I just write, advertise and don't worry too much about my score. It goes up and down and like I said I've yet to figure out the rhyme or reason for that.

    My highest hub score is 90. I guessed what has made it so was the number of organic traffic this particular hub is getting per day coupled with its uniqueness and more than a 600 words article.

    My highest was 96, which stayed for about a week, I think.  Since I've only been with HubPages 6 months, I was pretty inspired by that score, but I quickly learned how quickly and often scores fluctuate!   I don't have a clue as to what contributes to our scores.  I've learned not to allow it to affect me one way or the other.

    Ahem, shouldn't you be telling us the answer to having high Hubscores?  Congrats on your current 99.  I think mine is at its peak right now, hovering around 90.

    I've hit the magic 100 a dozen or more times, but can only attribute two of them to a huge (but temporary)  increase in traffic for evergreen hubs.  The rest have been when I haven't even logged in for a few days and therefore had done *nothing* to affect my score one way or the other.  The same thing often happens to a hubber friend. We just chalk it up to the Mystery of the Algorithm.  Personally, I think there are elves living in the HP servers who meet daily to draw names from a bowl to determine who gets the 100 scores.  Makes about as much sense as any other theory on how such scores are determined! ;D

    99 and I have no idea why except that I wrote an article with much research, almost like a thesis. The topic interested me, and increased my knowledge - great feeling to keep learning. Then maybe my hubscore never has much to do with such a happening. Many items combined are the bases for hubscore. Why worry?

    It reached 100, shortly after I  joined HP, it stayed there quite some time, ebbed a bit during  along the way..........

    I do not know the " mechanics" of such things...........just stay active, respectful, even when offering a counter-view, and write things that someone will be interested in reading.

    Highest hub score  - 97

    Highest author/hubber score - 99

    What contributed those scores? Only HP techs know that!

    But I must say that my authorscore seem to increase with my increased activity here. I also notice that within the first 24 hrs after publishing a new hub the score fall a point or two then shoots up drastically sometimes 5 or 6 points.

    I guess I had reached 90+ (don't know exactly) but there is one thing I noticed about my hubscore... If I gone active for the time being, my hubscore rises but, if there is a time in a day or two or more that I didn't visit my hubpages, do interactions like commenting, publishing a hub, answering questions, or participating in a forum, my hubscore drops drastically...

    So, i guess the hubscore represents how active or inactive the hubber is....

    93 - I think search engine traffic has something to do with it. I don't write for hubs on a regular basis, but my score goes up and down.

    Not managed to get my score over 91 and it has only ever been there for a short time. No idea why really.

    I almost didn’t jump in to answer your question because every answer I see here are great and I felt I couldn’t add anything extra that might help. Furthermore, I realize that anything I say is pure speculation anyway. Based on that I have to agree with Wesman Todd Shaw’s answer about speculation.

    But then I thought about one thing I refrain from doing and I thought it might help to share that.  And that is… I don’t try to do anything to artificially raise my score. 

    I feel that doing things like creating your own backlinks rather than letting them develop naturally, or following people just to get them to follow you back (not actually to read their Hubs), or stuffing keywords into your Hubs beyond those that naturally fall into the text as you write… all these things are artificial and they can actually backfire on you.

    Other than that, just keep up the good work, do your best, and the rest will all fall into place.

    I think this is the million dollar question on Hubpages.smile  The highest my Hubber score has ever been is 84, and the highest Hubscore I have had was almost 90.  I think that both numbers fluctuate with how active you are as a Hubber, how often you use the Hubhopping tool, how friendly you are when answering questions on the board.  I also think that if you are too active in any given time that this drastically can effect the number too. I think once the computer software catches up, and sees that you are not a SPAMMER this changes too in a positive way.  Great question, and I hope I helped you answer this one.smile

    I've been at 99 for a day or two here and there... and I have no idea what contributed to it reaching that. Most of the time I'm in the mid 90s so I guess it means I'm doing something right.
