Apprentice - What was your hubber score when you were accepted into the HubPages Apprentice Program?
How many hubs did you already have published when you applied?
My score hovers between 83 and 92. I had written about 75 hubs. I don't think that is all they are looking for. I feel like they want you to demonstrate a desire to work intensely with the program. If you are applying, good luck! It's a great program!
Thanks btrbell! I'm considering applying but thought maybe I should write more hubs first in case they consider length of time you are a member and how many hubs you already have published in that time.
I think one important thing is to publish at least 8 hubs a month to demonstrate that you can keep up. I had over 60 hubs and a hubber score that never dropped below 90, but I was turned down.
I think my score was around a 96 and I had about 35 hubs. (Began the AP March 2012)
Being in the Apprenticeship Program has not really affected my hubber score. My score usually hovers around 94 and can fluctuate anywhere between 88 - 97. The hubber score is an internal measure for HubPages and is a true mystery for many. Just an opinion, don't focus too much on the score; I've had fellow friends with a 100 hubber score and their traffic is sometimes lower than those in the low 90's. Again, it is a HubPages algorhythm mystery.
However, if you are curious about external traffic and income these two areas have shown a steady and significant increase for me. I'm sure the knowledge I gained in the AP helped with that. Plus, hub maturity (and quality) does seem to matter. Regardless, Google does have updates and traffic can fluctuate. In the end, don't worry about the score.
Best wishes to you if you choose to apply for the Apprenticeship.
Mine fluctuated in the 80's, occasionally getting into the 90's before I started the program, I had about 50 hubs or so.
I was in the second group that participated in the program so we have been done for a while now. It is 100% accurate that your score will fluctuate but mine has stayed in the 90's for months now and I even had a couple of days at 100.

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

I logged in to Hubpages this morning to find that whereas previously, I had two unfeatured hubs that I have been intending to get around to editing or deleting, I now have 25 UNFEATURED for "lack of engagement".Whilst I appreciate that the older hubs may well need some work or in some...

Can someone tell me what is the 'hub score' please? It seems to have no relevance to the number of page views on my hubs.Thanks!yellowbutterfly

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...
