    You aren't pulling your oar hard enough. You have to keep slinging words at the search engine, day and night, to drive your score up. Get on LemmingFace and Twinker . . .  send everyone on the net through your stall. Install a pay toilet and take credit cards. Now, you are on your way.

    The number is an average of your hub scores. If you are writing hubs quickly and posting, it could be that your hub score has not had enough time to mature - they go up as readership increases, etc.

    The other reason might be that you are not getting the traffic you need, or the quality of the hub is not as high as you would want.

    The two ways to raise traffic are through backlinking and keywords. If you are not familiar with these terms, put either one in the HubPages search box at the top of the page; there are many good Hubs on the subject.
    Good luck, and hope this helps.

    I've discovered that user hubscore has less to do with traffic and more to do with contribution. I've hit the 100 cap many times and yet I'm barely squeaking by with over 100 views per day (on all 120 of my hubs combined). I notice the score go up when I respond to other hubs/questions/forum posts and even more so when I post a new hub. So as long as you're posting quality material to hubpages, you should be fine, but even with the best of efforts, the score is still going to fluctuate however it wants to.

    I agree with M.T Dremer. Participating, asking and answering questions, voting and commenting on hubs, in my experience these things seem to raise hubber score. It's not your traffic or your hubs as far as I can tell. My hubber score is higher than any of my hub scores. I've been here 5 weeks, I have 16 hubs, 100 views would be a really good day for me. I got less than 20 pageviews today.

    The system scores you based on your activity and a few other things. We find the the you can't do too much or the system may see you as overdoing it. The best thing is to moderate your actions. Don't spend too long a time on HP.

    Just want to clarify and correct something John000 said.  Your Hubber score, the number on your avatar, is NOT the average of the scores of your individual hubs.  The number on your avatar is determined by the algorithm by an entirely different set of criteria.
