I was just wondering: Why is it that several of the most financially successful hubbers rarely have a writer score of 100 - Mark Knowles, Sunforged, Darkside, Ryankett, Misha, etc? Is it because they spend more time promoting and tweaking their hubs and less time on the forums?
I personally think it's because they are Yankees and furriners!
I wouldn't say I'm financially successful as yet but the more I earn the more average my score seems. Never hit the big 100.
And I spend TONS of time in the forums!
(Up to $52 on Adsense this month already, woot!)
I had a 100 once
I always felt my lower score was from lack of community involvement.
Who knows that any that you listed are the most financially successful - many of us have just been vocal in methodology, that doesnt equate to success. 3 that you listed, manage multiple accounts - so perhaps the community aspect to the score is weakened across those efforts.
The hubbers showcased in the new "success stories" are doing well in income and also many have/had 100 hubscores
..the secrets of the hubscore will never be cracked
Right - I often have a score of 100, although I'm not nearly as successful as other hubbers, like the ones I mentioned.
i just saw that your on that page, Congrats! .. I would suggest that you are as successful (just not as vocal about the money aspect) give your 700 hubs some time to mature!
Profitability has nothing to do with forum participation.
And yes, time spent elsewhere is a LOT more profitable.
Yeah, I think I never seen myself higher than 96 - and I earn probably in the first 10 or so. Though people like Marye Audet or Chuck do get 100 all the time and earn a lot, too.
My HubKarma will hit 100 long before my Hubber score does. At posting, they were 96 and 85 respectively.
And do you know what? I could not give a rat's! The numbers are just numbers to me.
HubPages is a place where I enjoy writing, posting, and hanging out. It is a writing community where people look out for each other (see Sunforged's Thief Alert post and you will see what I mean.)
That is it. If people click on my ads, rate my Hubs, vote them up, etcetera, etcetera, great. If not, so what?
It is all experience. And it is all fun.
I was a 100 for about 2 days...sigh...
scores are not as important as buys..
Hitting 100 seems to have a lot to do with how many followers a person has. It seems like almost all the 100's I come across have at least several hundred followers, or if they don't have that many they at least have a lot more followers than hubs created. With a few exceptions, those with a ton of followers (let's say, 1,500 or more) are people that might be considered "pioneers" on this site, in that they've been here 3 or 4 years. There doesn't seem to be a correlation between earnings and hubscore.
. . . .I'm not sure. I've never hit one hundred, but I've been to 96, and I've still got less than a hundred followers. What the guy said up there about resting-that might have something to it. I stayed between 94 to 96 when I was less active than I am now.
I'm not so sure about that, either. I've been a dollar hubber several times, and just crossed 200 followers recently.
As PCunix says, each time I take a few days off the hubber score goes up, then goes back down when I put that new, low score, hub up for publication.

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 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...

I was sitting pretty at a 95 for a while. I really liked that number. Suddenly it jumped to 97.Call me crazy but I like that it went higher - kind of - sort of - but you see... Now I want to KEEP it.I'm kind of possessive that way. I see a bunch of people with 100 hubber...

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!

Just amazing--sitting at an 80--publish a hub and drop to 67.This place is really starting to suck jelly beans. I knew there was a good reason I had started writing elsewhere. Hmm, I have clients praising my writing up and down and paying me anywhere from 28-60 dollars an hour, and here where I...

Does anyone know why the Hub and Hubber scores are listed for us to see on the My Account page?We’re told that Hub and Hubber scores really don’t mean anything as far as traffic or value of the hub is concerned, so why are the numbers even available for us to see? It seems to me that an...
