First of all, JOB WELL DONE!!
Do you have any secrets about keeping a high score that you would be kind enough to share?
I believe that perhaps the number of hubs plays a part in it. Hubkarma may also be a factor. I don't know. Links within your hubs. All those factors that give your account "substance" on the internet plays heavily on your score. I just don't know to what proportion of each factor.
Perhaps the hub subjects are important. At first I wrote a lot of religious and phylosophical hubs. Not understanding how traffic works on the internet I have learned that for visibility one must produce work that has some amount of demand. Anyhow, that has helped me.
I don't have any secrets, because nobody at HP will let me in on them, nor will Shades, plus I don't pay him.
All I can say is that I write meaningful, useful stuff that I can back up with research or personal experience. I take advantage of all the HP tools (capsules, categories, even suggest links) to present the info in my Hubs in the most readable way. I put myself in the reader's shoes and answer their questions about my topic before they have to ask them!
Be an authority on your subject and write in an authoritative manner, meaning don't let your reader abandon you because he has to fight his way through poor logic, bad grammar, or misspellings.
Most of all, enjoy what you do, take pride in it, and learn every day from the talented writers here.
Ignore the score to your left.
I would say that if you publish every couple of days and post something with around 1500 words and use the multi-media approach then you are on your way.
Mind you, once you hit a certain number you might want to be careful about being too controversial.
My advice is write what turns you on first and don't worry about a score that is meaningless outside of HP.
Carboncopyme, it's rare to find a newbie who grasps that important fact! Are you really a newbie or are you a carbon copy of...?
Let's just say I have been aware of HP for over a year and leave it at that.
Mine was 92 when I woke up. It is 95 now. I have written nothing today but my views were up and I left some comments on others pages and responded to a few on my own.
The other day I deleted one of my underperfoming hubs. I had it here for 2 months and it consistantly scored under 60. My advice is to right what you know and when you see others are interested in your topic write more about it. Also use google keywords they help.
My scores go from low 80s to mid-to-high 90s all the time.
It depends on good tagging and traffic, I 'spose.
No. I don't pay any attention to my HubScores or my Hubber Score. I know they have no effect on my income so what's the point?
However I do notice that being active in the forums makes a difference to my score. That's pretty much the only thing I do on HP other than write Hubs. I hardly follow anybody and I rarely comment on other people's Hubs.
My highest was 95 the other day, think age of your account helps?
It seems to be the influence that you achieve on the site of Hubpages itself, whether that be forum posts or replying back to hubpage comments, I've noticed it go up for both of them and other stuff.....
I think I was down into the 80s but recently started writing and have posted a handful of hubs in the past couple weeks... Have been getting a lot of traffic, as well. ??? I don't understand it, but keep it comin'.... I'm almost only $20 away from $100 Google adsense. lol!
Oh, I also just discovered the "suggest links" tool... and went back and did that with just about every single hub I've written. I don't know if that's what helped raise my score, or if that somehow raised my traffic, or what.
I don't know. Mine seems to rise when my earnings rise--- but I don't know what causes that, either.
Don't let them kid you, they are just guessing! Just do the best you can and don't worry about it! LOL!
agreed. just do your best and contribute to the community in all the different ways we can, reading, commenting, rating other hubs, flagging.. I personally don't see forum activity as being a huge indicator if you look at the top hubbers on any given day.. many of them don't enter the forums.
we don't know. just enjoy it.
Actually, HP has put me in charge of assigning hubscores, and I do it based on how much each hubber puts in my PayPal account. So, if you're wondering about your score, perhaps you're not giving generously enough.
Darn, I forgot my daily contribution. I must have given twice to the Hub Christmas fund in Pearldivers account. lol
That's going to hurt you. I suggest you pony up or you're looking at low fifties by tomorrow.
I can do 98 at that price. 99 is $550 now, and a 100 is an even grand.
No wonder that cheapskate Mark Knowles is only on 96
And clever the way that you don't leave your score at 100 all the time, so that HP staff don't get wind of your scheme.
Too bad if they read this post though!
I can confirm that this is true.
I pay shades $100 per month, haven't been here or done anything much for ages, and my score is still pretty good.
p.s. If I up it to $200 a month, can you organise 99 or 100 for me?
You owe me one more point, you scoundrel! You said $.25 was enough to keep my 100 for two days! Add it on!
That was a promotional offer and you failed to type the promotional code I sent you into the order form. It is not my fault if you cannot follow instructions. Enjoy your 99 and be more meticulous next time.
But you said it was guaranteed! Down here we don't put up with scallywags! Dummy up ShadyBreath!
...I'm sorry, the number you are trying to reach has been disconnected or is no longer in service. Please hang up and try your call again...
Do you prefer large bills, sir? Damn it, Shades, answer the phone!!
You, too? Wow! I thought I was the only one getting kickbacks.
I need an intervention, I've been obsessed with my hubscore and the damn thing has been stuck at 89 for three days. So tantalizingly close to the 90's.
I have yet to be above 97, but it hasn't gone below 92 in a while.
Saying that will certainly jinx it. Tomorrow morning I'll be in the low 80's.
You watch. You read it here first.
I'm such a sucker for this scoring that I took a photo of my monitor when I got to a 99. And then of course there are the days-most days at that-when I'm in the mid-90's.
If I ever hit 100, I'll post it on YouTube!
I still have the bonus deal running for one more week. Be quick, and beat the rush.
99 score = $997 less your special bonus discount= $447.
But wait there's more!
My super bonus price= 0nly $199!
And ....... if you throw in 14 chickens, I teach you to throw a boomerang!
Believe it or not, I learned to throw a boomerang when I was 13, Earnest! It has been a couple of years since I have last done this!
...darn...you just reminded me that i had a boomerang and a didgeridoo from australia (friend from australia bought them for me) and I realize they are now gone from my home......the ex has them.....I'm not happy! waaaaaaaaa! that's what I got from your video ernest LOL!
Earnest !!!! You forget the FREE set of steak knives !!!!!!!!
just between you and me, I type in the nude...
it allows me the freedom to express myself without any psychological constraints.
As a results, my work is tinged with equal elements of ribaldry, insight.... and girth
I was at 99 for a whole day. that's what this thread is about right? scores? but I didn't really get along with those other snobby 99ers so I purposely got in some trouble in that bored thread the other morning so my score could go back to a 96 so I could be with those I love! when and if I ever get to 100, I'm bringing all of you with me!
I find the Hubber score to be rather ambiguous,(or unfathomable) while I have had scores in the upper 90’s if I should be away from the site for a span of 4 to 5 days the score drops for no other reason than inattentiveness, in that the number of page views per day stays level and the article scores maintain their status.
I have never been able to figure out the real parameters of the makeup of the hub author score. If anyone has a clue let me know, but in my limited experience it appears attentiveness is a cumulative portion of whatever algorithm is applied.
i'm not quite sure what it is relevant to...but don't really think about it that much...same with the karma thing! numbers...don't chase them.....
Hubber scores are totally dependent on decorum and comportment. That's why I always try to carry a book on my head, as it improves my posture--although I don't have the balance I used to have. Or the flat head.
I had an English prof who advocated carrying books on the head as an alternative to being dragged down by armloads of texts which were ruinious to proper posture.
Do students still use books, or do they just have a laptop and a Kindle?
(My score has gone up a couple of points since posting in this thread -- and paying Shadesbreath.)
Damn no wonder I fluctuate,.... with all of the creative spirits I apply to tempt the muses, I can’t keep the book on my head!
So how much traffic do you get, how long did it take to start getting volumes of traffic?
I don't get volumes of traffic, not even pamphlets of traffic-- a few flyers, maybe an occasional newsletter worth.
I think it has a lot to do with how active you are - I didn't do much last week and my score dropped several points, now it is back at 95 but I haven't published any hubs for ages, only posted in the forum and left a couple of comments.
Hubscore is a funny thing, mine shot up quickly then just stopped dead despite all my comments I was making!
Mine currently varying between 94 and 96, it seems to depend on how active you are. I am in the forums and I comment on other's hubs also. So I guess the more you do the more you get as far as your hubber score goes.. As to the individual hub scores I am still trying to work that one out, mine mainly 70s and 80s after a week or two of publishing, still trying to figure out how to get higher.. have lots of text, pictures, videos, news and links etc..
I've been at 100 several times and found it quite exiting. But I have no idea what put me there!
Thanks, Shades! (The envelope with my check was returned with "no such address" marked on it.)
I've also been at 100 a few times, but since I stopped paying Shadesbreath it has dropped.
Sounds to me like everyone is clueless
I was at 97 yesterday and today it's 96. Maybe I should have practiced grabbing at the brass ring when I was a kid.
Payment received for you both. (Rochelle, you may not have noticed the razor slit along the left edge of that envelope.)
Then Sally must be silly-- she doesn't need any help. She already knows what to do (see her post above).
Yes, she's quite the actress, I can tell you.
Actress, first she loves 'em
Actress, then she leaves 'em
Tells them they must part
Always breaks their heart
Funny, Shades...those are the words a classmate wrote in a song about me when I was 12 years old and wanted to be an actress when I grew up.
Too bad that little ditty was never recorded.
You little heart breaker you. I bet he still thinks about you sometimes.
They all do. ...*sweet smile*
You are too kind, Rochelle. I just stumble along here like, like, like....well, like you!
Presently, it's at 98. I'm happy with it. It regularly stays at about 93. By the time you see it, it may be back down again. So be it.
I knew I should never have added anything into this forum earlier, my score has plummeted down to 93, I guess Shadesbreath must have noticed my rising score without having made any payment... oh well...
What do I owe to get my score back up??
Be kind, I am only a newbie
If you haven't got the message by now it is: WE DON'T KNOW.
Paying Shades is like throwing the salt over your shoulder for luck... it might work. (I'm not really doing that-- but he thinks I am.)
I dont have a freaking idea eithor but my score has been climbing latley.. I guess thats a good thing...

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

During my time on HP I have head/seen/read a lot of speculation about the scoring system. I have given up trying to figure out my profile score but my articles are different. As I understand it the more views, vote up and feedback, the higher the hub will score. I figured if you have a hub that has...

Why does it bug me so much when I see my hubscores going down? It is not supposed to matter, especially when it is just a point or 2 but it really gets to me.
by Steve Andrews 10 years ago
As I have found today! I was led to believe that hubs of 75 and over were worth holding on to but obviously not! I just had one with a score of 81 getting the zzs!
by Lisa 8 years ago
Obsessing with mid 70's for hubscores and they are high traffic-what gives? Anyone help me out here?I have been working on each of my 50 hubs for days..I'm tired and worn out. I don't need to have a score of 90 for my hubs, but a decent 80 would be at least decent for the work ..these hubs...
