    I noticed a hubber who has been on hubpages for 3 years, has 1 hub and a hub profile of 92?

    I know that the arcane arts of hub-scoring is a closely guarded secret but this has to be an anomaly doesn't it.
    So 1 hub which had a hub-score of 66 and this hubbers profile is on 92?
    Does anyone want to try to explain it?
    I await your comments thanks.

    at a guess i would have to say they are probably very active in the forums as well as hub hopping. i believe part of our score comes from writing hubs while the other part comes from those other two activities.

    Yes, the hubscore floats based on how active you are on HubPages mainly in terms of answering questions and commenting on other hubs. I have noticed since last week that mine keeps in a 82-88 range, and floats depending on my activities. I only have 8 hubs at the moment.

    I've given up on trying to figure out the hubscore. Mine fluctuates around 89 +/- 3, sometimes changing crazily in a single day.  I can only guess that the hubber you name is on the forums and Q&A pages all the time. I wonder - does their sole hub have a lot of comments? Is it outlandishly funny or particularly unique or engaging?

    If one leaves a lot of good comments, does the "hub hopper" thing often and well, and participates in other aspects of the site.....no prob.

    It's not about having the most hubs, you know...

    It is not what you know, it is who you know.

    One hub could actually have more comments than multiple hubs combined. Being active in the forums, answering questions, and commenting on other hubs, also add to your hub score.  Some of this activity is not what you would regularly see, but would instead stumble upon.

    Well, Molometer......It seems rather foolish, to me, that the "process" of hub-scoring is a well-guarded secret......that it is a secret, at all.  I have never worked anywhere in my 50-year career, nor been involved in worthwhile activities, that do not inform us  UP-FRONT, how our progress & productivity results are decided upon.  It makes perfect sense for someone to know what is expected of them, what they may or may not want to do in order to accomplish the best results possible.  It seems to me, the only reason for keeping pertinent info from someone, would be if a "game" and/or competition were to take place.  I've not read anywhere that HP is either....a game or a competition, have you?  I will admit that my initial enthusiam and joy has somewhat waned due to lack of understanding our ever-fluctuating hub scores, as well as certain other mysteries that I'm learning, go on between authors and moderators (or whatever these invisible individuals are referred to as).....For instance, I've been told by numerous hubbers that a few of their ENTIRE hubs have been rejected....but they were never given a REASON and/or explanation as to why.  THIS makes no sense at all.  There's a lot of "banning" going on too.  I don't think I even want to know, how hubbers get themselves banned......but I can't help but think of "High School"  & "suspension"...or certain CHURCH groups that practice "Shunning" when members misbehave.  The latter being a matter of egregious ignorance, in my humble opinion, since I've always felt that church is for "sinners."....to repair their evil ways.   lol.........I have gone up and down 2 to 3 points within a 24-hr period......(and this is the kicker....)  whether I've not even been online doing a thing...OR, have published a hub, answered questions and left comments....or any other list of things.......so, how THAT is explained it a total GUESS.

    That is very intriguing Michael but I have to agree with what everyone is saying. It's either getting a lot of hits and comments on the hub or this person is very active on Hubpages and reading and commenting on hubs and questions. It's still a little frustrating to those of us that work hard and write on a regular basis. I too have a hub score that fluctuates daily and sometimes several times a day. Sometimes my score goes down when I've published a new hub and been commenting on many hubs. It's confusing to say the least. I have observed that my score ALWAYS goes down after publishing a hub but goes back up a day later :-0

    I have stopped trying to figure out and control my hubscore. I used to get frustrated with my score bouncing up and down with no apparent reason. I have enough stress in my life, without causing more by myself and have decided to ignore my score and concentrate on writing high quality and helpful hubs.

    I love writing, get good comments, help others and make money. And to top it all off, I love my hubpage friends and am learning to become a better writer.

    I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you.
