What is your Hubber Score ( the number next to your picture on your profile if you aren't sure what I mean?) Mine happens to be 100 right at the moment, but could change at any second so I am freezing that in time and wondering what everyone else's is?
Who knows for sure? I don't. I can tell you I'm very active on Hub Pages. Have 157 hubs in 1 year. I comment on hubs regularly, ask questions at least monthly, and I have a lot of followers. 92 is good. Mine fluctuates but always 95 - 100 for awhile
Congrats on the 100 score! The highest I've been is 96! At the moment it's 91, yesterday it was 94.
I've worked out that it registers my participation on Hubpages with some delay, that means that the 91 score is a take on the weekend, I did very little then. Today I've been quite active, so maybe it will go up soon! I don't really worry about it, but I do find it's a good prompt, sometimes I don't realise how much time has gone by, but I do when the score drops!
Well, I only started a few days ago, so it's currently zero. Zilch. Nada. Hopefully with a little time and effort that'll change. I have to admit though, seeing that zero sitting there like that just makes me feel like I failed a test. Abysmally.
Welcome to Hub Pages. My suggestion is to have patience, follow more people, and keep writing hubs and leaving comments on hubs. The numbers go up the more you participate on Hub Pages. I'm your first follower, but you need more! Keep writing!
Hi, I only started a few days ago as well and my score has hit zero today too. I know what you mean about failing a test., Good thing is at least there is lots of good advice here so hopefully we will be climbing up there soon.
Today its at 94 and my highest was 97 - hoping to pop back uup there and one day the 100 would be neat. I seemed to have hovered between 89 and 92 for ever and I don't know how or why I went higher. Nice though.
I think it's peaked at 89-90, but I seem to be stuck around - 84-88....i'm avoiding editing one particular hub as it will lose it's ads...I edited a similar one previously and lost the ads merely due to be about sexuality apparently.
Today I'm at 93. I confess that surprises me. I have less than 30 followers and because I live off the grid and use satellite for internet connection I choose to follow topics that interest me more often than the actual author. I have only published a dozen hubs so far but I try to comment on other people's hubs and answer questions that catch my eye. I don't understand how the Hubber Score works because many other hubbers here leave me in their dust.
I only joined Hubpages a couple of days ago, only posting four Hubs so far. However my, 'Hubscore,' rating is showing 0... I have read on other forums that i should not be concerned as it takes a while to update, but I would love to understand a bit more as to how it is calculated. I like to think that my hubs are filled with interesting and revelant information to the subject concerned, and that the quality of the hub is not an issue. I just want to be able to understand what affects this number, as the longer it stays like this, the greater I forecast myself to become demotivated to continue writing hubs... Even if four is not much to become motivated about in the first place. Anyway, by the initial impression of this site, it seems hard to get 100, so big congratulations, even if it does not mean much from such a newbie!
From my experience (I'm 2 1/2 weeks old) it largely depends on your activity in the community. I hit 0 just like you within days of joining even though I had 10 hubs. I began to answer questions, write comments and vote on hubs and it quickly rose.
Jay, I have only just seen this and you have gone from a score of 0 to 75 in 11 days. That's fantastic! I can't tell you exactly what it is based on, but I do know that the more hubs you write, comments you leave and the more your score climbs!
Zero. And I have no idea why because I have been writing and commenting and everything. I have resigned myself to not trying to control my Hubber Score but rather have decided to focus on my individual hubs.
Mine dances whimsically between 89 and 92 for some reason. If one were inclined to raise that score by reading some of my world-class youth-rejuvenating* hubs that are guaranteed to entertain and/or enlighten, I would not be opposed to the idea, no. You go right ahead.
*Hubs will not reverse the aging process, this is not medically possible and I apologize for misleading you fine folks.
Maggie, 9 days later you are up to a score of 91...yay! The more you participate by writing hubs, following others and leaving comments, the higher your score will go. Good job. 91 for a newbie is great!
I have no idea. It changes all the time. What really matters to me is not the score, but the readership and the money being earned. As long as I'm earning (I am) I don't have a care in the world about the score.
You're at 91 and that is good. The more you write, the more you may attract followers and I do think people tend to follow people with the higher scores because they think they must be doing something right!
My Hubber Score right now is 82. Im o with that because it allows me to write exclusive hubs that you can only obtain with a Hubber Score of 80+. Good job on your score of 100 by the way. Keep up the good work.
I don't know for sure. My suggestion would be to write more hubs as you have about 1/3 of that I have and I think the more you publish, the more active you are in terms of writing, the higher it goes. I try to publish about 3 each week. Good luck.
Glad I saw this question today. OMG my hubber score is 99 and what I want to know is what have I done differently that I haven't been doing for the past two years?! I think I'll hold my breath and hope it lasts! Can anyone tell me what happened to the HP function that let you look at the most current hubs, the hottest hubs, and the highest ranked hubs? Also, used to be you could look up hubbers by their hubber score. It was a great way to keep up with what was going on, meet brand new hubbers, and learn from the best. Where did that go?
I come to the "Answers" section when I'm looking for something to do anyway, but when I saw this question I couldn't resist answering it and pointing out that this is a particularly time for me to answer because (at least until it changes, which I imagine will happen within hours of now), I'm at 100.
For the most part (and most the time), my score tends to range between 95 and 99. It sometimes hits 100, less often in recent months than in the past, but I imagine that's because I've been less active on here, except for within the last week or so). In recent months I've also seen it dip to 94 a couple of times, and I hadn't seen that in ages. I think, though, what happened was I may have been at 95/96 and then made the score go down by being too active with the "community stuff". I have slow periods with the kind of work I do, so sometimes I'll kill a lot of time, looking for stuff to do on this site (but not being in the mood to write a Hub). So if I do too much activity on here I'm not trying to do anything "funny" or questionable by putting my name all over every community activity there is to do. I'm just bored. BUT, I think it's built in that they want to reduce the chances of one person's appearing to "monopolize" the site by having his/her name show up too often in too many places. Then again, the score tends to drop with too little community activity - hence a lot of the ups and downs of scores.
Either way, that one Hubber score doesn't matter a whole lot as long it's in "the respectable" range, and that's a pretty big range. As so many other people can/do, I can vouch for the fact that the score doesn't particularly reflect higher traffic. My traffic right now is about as low as its ever been on here. The same with earnings.
I mostly posted here for new people wondering about the kind of involvement/effort it takes to get a 100 score. I'm just one, isolated, example among "zillions" who've seen that score. They're all different, and most will say what I have about how little it matters, or how little difference there is between 100 and, say, 95 (or, for all I know, 77). A lot of people have just been conditioned by grade school to like seeing "100". (I'm as "guilty" as the next one at that liking-100 thing). HP staff, itself, will tell you not to pay a lot of attention to the score. I learned ages ago not to because - really - the ups and downs could drive a person nuts. (lol) (What's bad about 100 is that there's no place to go but down, so a nice, healthy, 96 is kind of good. )
I range from 80-89 , depends on how often I publish a hub and or hub hop I guess, or answering questions like this. Im trying to get on here more so I can finally hit the 90's. It must have something to do with being active on here, because my Highest hub score is 82. and yet im ranked at an 87
On my old account on Hubpages my score still is 82, even though I have only 2 Hubs on that profile and I haven't used it in months.
I started this profile because I didn't want to use my real name anymore (it's both too complex for English readers and too particular for me too feel comfortable), but since I opened my new account yesterday, my score actually started to drop, from 29 to 21, even though I picked up some activity here. I find it extremely odd, because I remember gaining points on my old account right away, rather than losing them. I wonder if anyone has any idea why that might be happening.
I have been here since January, 2012 and this is only the second time I hit the hundred mark. The first time it came and went quickly, but this time it has stuck...at least for today! I have been working...
As I suspect this will be a very, very brief blip, I wanted to celebrate my Hubber Score of 100 with a thread. In an hour or so, I'm sure this score will be gone.In the meantime...WOOT!!Now back to your regularly...
I got a hubber score of 100 for the first time in the two years I've been in Hubpages! And I found myself one of the Featured Hubbers on the homepage for the first time too! This calls for a celebration!
What most fundamentally makes up a hubscore of 100?YAY!!!!!! I've just achieved a hubscore of 100 for the first time!! It was great to see after reaching 99 a couple of times, and I feel genuinely a sense of triumph and...
