    Please provide me with some assistance. I have been with HP for 3 months. My hubscore fluctuates between 87 and 89 - never getting higher. I try to write at least one hub a week and I answer questions and leave comments. I see others that haven't written in months and their scores stay in the nineties.

    Please look at my hubs and let me know what I may be doing wrong. Thank you so much!

      That's not a bad score at all, you should be pleased . . .   and anything over 75 can earn well, though it takes some time. I think of you look around for awhile you will see that hubscore is just a number. I'm usually in the 90's-- but then I've been here for awhile, and I don't think I saw high hubscores in my first year.

      Concentrate on doing your best work and don't look at the numbers that much. It look like you have been working hard and that's what counts.

    I think it is mainly because of low traffic.Your other scoring factors seems to be okay.

    I wouldn't worry about it. It can take a few months to get into the 90s and some people never see 100.

    In the end, score isn't much more than a gloating point, anyway.

      I see. Its just strange to see some of my followers who haven't written in weeks and have a few hubs in the 90's.

    Just keep up what you're doing and as long as you keep writing good Hubs that collect traffic and higher ratings, it will come. Mine hasn't moved up too much of late, but hovers around 88-92.

    Perhaps if you read other hubber's Hubs (those whose author score is in the 90's), you might recognise things about the way they write that give you a clue as to why you are not achieving the same scores. This is not a criticism, simply a suggestion. Good Luck, I am sure you will soon be in the 90's (although it really isn't a big deal as Wry Lilt and Rochelle say above).

    Promotion of your Hubs has to happen same time as the participating on HP site hmm get your Hub links sprinkled around online. Use the Search bar upper right corner for Hubs on generating traffic. smile hope that helps.

    Don't be too concerned with numbers. Promote your hubs(if not doing so already)on Facebook, Tweeter, Shetoldme,Redgage, and IMAutomator. Also consider signing up for paper.li
