    How long have you been here? How often do you post? And quite a few other questions also...

    I've only been on here since Friday, and I'm wondering how much I can expect my hubscores to rise (or fall) over the next few weeks. Do they increasingly get better? When do they top out?Same goes for my score...if I actively participate daily, how long will it take for my score to reach 80, 90, and 100? How much of it goes into the quality of my writing? I pride myself in beinga pretty decent writer, and I'm wondering if my scores will reflect my ability to write, or if they are bassed solely on participation...Thanks!

    And now I feel really silly for my lack of (space) in between words. I hate typos.

    I've been here for about 10 months now. If by 'post' you mean write a hub, then I write a hub about once or month or more. Other hubbers come out with a few hubs a week. It all depends on how much time each of us has and how we space everything out.

    Don't focus on the author score or hubscores. If you search on this site about scores, you'll find plenty of hubs written by seasoned hubbers who try to explain the process. Basically, if you want higher scores, write quality hubs and be an active participant on the site.

    Good luck!

    I think it's a bit of both participation as well as quality hubs. i've seen my score go up to 92 when i was active in the forums and the answers section. and i've seen my score as low as 62 when i didn't login to hubpages for about 2 months.
    i don't think you should worry much about your hubscore as much as the content you write ... follow people encourage their work and they'll do the same with you... at the end of the day you don't only want traffic from hub pages, but from search engines... so look into some SEO techniques ... when you get the traffic you'll automatically have a high score.
    hope that helps ... and welcome to hub pages.

    Your scores reflect many attributes. If you write well, then you will likely get followers and a good reputation, increasing your traffic. When your traffic increases, then so will your scores. Your participation will also help your overall hubber score, because the more you participate, the more known you will become, and people will be more likely to try your hubs. Keep in mind, reaching 100 is not vital. Once you actually reach 100, it is very difficult to maintain that status. If you post one or two, or even more, high quality hubs a day, your hubber score should start to go up pretty fast. But the score of your hubs can be the most difficult to maintain. Their scores do not depend on your ability to write alone, though that is still very important. I believe, though I may be wrong, your overall hub scores depend mostly on the amount of content, meaning amount of words, the amount of pictures and videos to go along with it, and most importantly the traffic.

    I have been on here for about 6 months. I post a hub about every other week. I read and comment on people's hubs daily. I answer a couple of questions daily. I rarely get on forums.
    If you write a quality hub every week or two, with few grammar or spelling errors, your hub scores will be in the 70's and 80's. Those fluctuate daily with the number of readers you get. Participating in the community (answering questions, forums, hub hopping) will raise your hubber score 1-3 points each. Reading and commenting on other people's hubs will get you followers, which will bring you readers. Those help your hub scores rise. Holding a hub for 24-48 hours after you're done with it, will give you a slightly higher hub score to start out with, which will help keep your hubber score from fluctuating as much. It will drop slightly every time you publish a new one until you get a large number of hubs to average.
    How long it will take for you to get a hubber score in the 80's and 90's is up to how much work you want to put into it. Getting the elusive 100 is not as easy. Also getting it and keeping it are two different things. That could take years to get. Keeping it is impossible. I only know of a handful that keep them for more than a day or two. When we do get them, we watch them suspiciously, waiting for it to drop. It is almost a joke.
    Most people never worry about the hubber score fluctuating because they will. They will also drop, seemingly for no reason. Just do your best to keep your work at a quality level and be out there in the community to attract readers and you will do well. Some people will make fun of you for worrying about it, so don't bother.
