    What does the number next to your name on your hub stand for?

    It keeps changing and I am curious as to what it means?

    It's your Hub score as an author. No one seems to know how it's calculated. It's a mystery. Your score is typical for a newby. When I was very active, mine was in the 90's.

    Although I don't know the formula, you get points for you hub scores (or maybe it's the average hub score), leaving comments on hubs, asking/answering questions, participating in the forums, and probably some other things. New hubbers will have lower scores, but it'll climb as you publish hubs and interact with other hubbers. What's really a mystery is that sometimes your score will drop a bit even when you do all those things. That said, it seems that any hubber who is fairly active and writes good hubs will see their score climb into the 90s and stay there - at least that's my experience.

      Do you know how they calculate to get that number and why it fluctuates? Like so many point for answering or so many points for writing a hub? That's the mystery haha

      I don't know and I don't think many other people do either. I'm pretty sure it's one of those secrets that if they told us what it is they'd have to kill us. LOL!

    I know it's our author score, but I have no clue how it's calculated.  The teacher in me sees it as a grade and feels shamed that my report card has now seen a C (79) and a B (84).
