How does the rating system work? Im a 85, but my best hub is rated at 81
If we really knew the answer to that we'd all be gaming it. So the best thing, in my opinion, is just to do your best and enjoy the ride.
Ditto on this end for what Mark Ewbie said.
I can give you tips, but it's really just speculation. The Hubpages.com author and hub scoring algorithms are secret just as Google's search engine algorithm is.
As other Hubbers have stated, the algorithm is a secret and no one truly knows how it works. One thing you will find with many (not all) high scoring Hubbers is that are active in the community by leaving insightful comments on other's Hubs and participating in the forums as well as answering questions. HubberScore and HubScores do change constantly due to the algorithm.

Hope this helps!
i have no idea too but probably participating in asking questions and providing answers might help!

In my latest hub regarding the top 10 anime openings <snipped link> I felt the need to add a 5-star rating system to help the viewers undestand why a particular opening scored better than the others...Sadly Hubpages didn't help me doing this... Even in the text editor, when you go to custom...
