Is seeing high hubber scores on profiles a motivating factor to keep you hubbing actively?
"There are incentives programs to keep people motivated in many pro networks online today. Hubpages is quite unique when it comes to their visual accolades & hubber score system, which both play such an active role here for motivating us all to keep hubbing more intensively".
With that being said, please explain why either it motivates you to see a higher hubber score on your profile, or if it doesn't have any affect on you at all? if you can also let us know why you feel that way.
I am very competitive, so yes the HubScore is a major motivator. Also trying to get EVERY accolade is another motivator.
The main motivation is writing. When I get that urge to write something. I hate when I get an idea, but I do not want to write. I especially hate when I want to write, but do not have an idea!
Yes, it motivates me to try to keep my hubber score high. I feel when I see a hubber with a high hubber score, then they must be a good writer/active on hub pages so they know what they are doing. It makes me want to follow them so I can pick up tips and read good hubs, and I want to set the same good example for new hubbers by keeping my hub score on the higher end.
The hubber score is supposed to reflect the input of a hubber to the site although there are other elements which can affect the hub score. Mine sometimes reaches the peaks very slowly, then goes down very quickly!! I would say answering questions like yours helps boost the score!
As other hubbers have noted, if you write original content, answer questions and give comments as well as participate in the forums your hub score should in theory go up, which gives a sort of feel good factor.
What I would add is that to keep a consistently high hub score you must maintain a high profile, that is, the more you put in the more you'll get out. You reap what you sow in other words.
It's a kind of superficial incentive that can lead to greater motivation. You want the best for your hubs, for other hubbers and ultimately for HubPages, right?

Hubber scores do not reflect anything but some weird algorithm that is not in sync with anything. My score just went sixteen points down. My views are up and I am featured way more that 140 times.But what I noticed was Billybuc. He is an 88. What? He is the highest ranking site at Hub pages. This...

A month ago I announced some updates to HubScore: raw traffic is deemphasized, reader satisfaction is emphasized, and overall, the scores are a more accurate reflection of the quality of Hubs than they used to be. Today, I'd like to talk about the subsequent update to Hubber Score — the score...

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

I used to have little trouble keeping everything featured but now defeaturing for traffic is happening a lot more. It makes me wonder if the bar has been lifted?

I am looking for 5 things that will increase my hubber score.Assume there are enough articles to manipulate and about 200 featured but a ton "less than". The hubber does not network and just wants to raise the score. There is no angst or financial issue, just raise that score.Should...
