I seem to hover between an author score of 92 and 95 generally. Anyone know how to break 95?
You've only been here 4 months...I'm sure it took me a year to get over 95
I have no idea-- I think it just takes time.
Awesome answer, Rochelle...I will try, try, try to be patient then as I continue. Thanks a bunch for the solid, and very honest answer!
It's not really much of an answer. (My hubby says "I don't know" is not an answer at all.)
I don't think I reached 100 for a couple of years-- (and it still bounces around) but I'm sure there are others who got there much earlier.
Me too, when you find out, I will re-read this thread.
I personally hover between 80 and 85, so I think you're doing great.
Keep doing what you're doing and don't think about it. I think it has more to do with what/how you contribute to the HP community rather than number of hubs or how often you post in the forums.
There have been times when I've hardly been active, and I reach a higher score. It may be views, clicks, followers, comments, sales, helping others, writing informative hubs, etc.
I generally have the same problem, but one day I actually saw my score at 96
I have, at least, not seen my score swoop down below 90 in a couple of months now. I am excited for the day when I get a score of 100 though!
Write more hubs with higher scores?
I can't say I worry about it. But I am in this primary for money and amusement value.
I'm not particularly worried about it. It would just be nice to see. I've written about 35 hubs or so in 4 months. I'll just keep plugging. Thanks!
My husband has almost 200 hubs, and has been on here more than 2 years, and he very seldom reaches a 95 score...he consistently stays in the lower 90's.
I've gotten up to 99, but I swear that every time I come to the forums and comment a few times, my score drops 2 or 3 points, so I just give up concerning myself with it, since I can't figure it out, lol.
Just do your best, and don't worry about the score--that's probably when it'll go up for you!
TamCor, it's funny you should say that. I always notice a drop of a point or two when I post in forums. Veddy interesting....
I'm not sure that posting in the forums lowers hub score or profile score.
I often see 100 and post a lot! I think as UW said, it takes time.
Time I got...lol Oddly enough, I hit 96 this morning. Hmmmm. Thanks to ALL of you. earnest, I envy your score on a daily basis and I know you post often.
No. I said that. , (but she probably said it first.)
Hi Motown. Yes I know. However I have given up with it now, because all that happened was I sweated about the magic score and the copiers zoomed in on my content.
They join HubPages, follow the top authors, and steal their content. I think a score below 95 is probably best.
Er. I don't really know about the top score secret but in addition to writing hubs, commenting and forum stuff I was hub hopping regularly. Now I can't be bothered. Seems my score is dropping slightly.
Good luck with your quest!
Don't worry about the Hubberscore, you are lucky. I see people her a long time who can't even get pass 80 or so. Hovering between 92 and 95 is great for a person here 4 months. As you continue to be a part of the community and write great articles I am sure it will increase.
Don't worry about it. Keep writing hubs and keep visiting the forums, keep participating in the community(reading and commenting on hubs), vote on the contests, write hubs for weekly inspiration and keep doing what you are already doing.
You'll get higher sooner or later.
Thanks, Cags. I think that's the best advice so far. And, frankly, I love participating, so that shouldn't be too tough. Besides, I'm one of those who has trouble keeping her mouth shut on occasion. How could I NOT comment?
You're a great one, sir Raymond!
I concur with everything* said above, M2C.
Just continue to be active in all the ways you want to be active (which you ARE!).
I, too, notice a dip in score when I shoot my mouth off on the forums. Doesn't stop me, tho!!!
*And that includes your assessment of Sir Raymond. He's a keeper, alright!
No one knows! It would take a sneaky snake to find out for sure
Motown.. even if you hit hundred it does not stay there for long.. don't worry just do what you do well and remain positive cheers
Have you read the hubs about how to get an author score of 100?
Once you're nearly there you can wake up one morning and see 100 ... and dance round the room. You make a coffee, sit down and ... OH NOES ... it's gone down to 99 in the last 10 minutes.
So many things affect your score that it's not overly important, so long as you've got a reasonable score ... and Mark's probably right about content thieves.
OK mine is 96 at the moment take it quick you can have it, one thing is for sure it will not last very long. Sometimes I think maybe, the number is just there to check how alert you are when you log in
I've been here 16 months, and while I haven't found the time to write as regularly as many hubbers, I've still managed to stay in the 90's most of this year.
A couple of my picture hubs were featured in their category recently, and another hub was featured on the home page for a short while, which seemed to co-incide with my reaching 100 a couple of times in the last couple of weeks.
So I guess it comes down to writing interesting stuff that people like to read, some nice pictures, a nice layout, and some decent keyword research and SEO. Oh..and taking part in the community, as others have said.
Keep on writing M2C, you'll get there. Cheers

Can someone please give me a clue as to why my Author score continues to plummet? I've been writing on HubPages since May, '09 and I've not seen my score in this range since about six months after I began. I know they say the score is not that important as long as you stay above 75, but...

If my author score gets higher, will the scores of my hubs get higher? Also, if my author score is higher at the time that I start my hub will that affect the scores of my hubs?

Just curious why my author score is dropping....My first few hubs were basically promotional and shorter and I had a score of 79. It has dropped to 67 as of today after a new hub I put up that was not promotional and has gotten more traffic than my other hubs. I have deleted a couple of hubs. Will...

I just wanted to say congrats to all the hubbers with an author score with the 95-100 range.. 95-100 in my book is an A+.. That is awesome and I know it requires hard work and determination .. Some of you have helped me with a lot of things to know about Hubpages and I just want to say thank you,...
