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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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?
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!
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.
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...
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...
Over the past few months my SEO has definitely improved, adsense is getting there and the HP Ad revenue is steadily increasing, however my Amazon sales are still in the cellar with no signs of life lately! I have had a...
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...
My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to...
