Good job! You must feel great! Paying off debt has an almost euphoric feeling, doesn't it? Of course your score will go up. Just don't re-max your credit cards. Once upon a time, my credit was jacked but today its awesome! I have lots of credit but have maintained it and always pay on time. So keep on doing well and your score will soar (yeah, that was retarded! lol!)!!!

it should over time just keep paying without going 30 days late and try to keep balances on cards less than 30% of total credit and it should go up

Yes, but it will take time. Keep current on all of your credit debt and eventually it will go up; it is not automatic. If you max out your credit cards and only pay minimum payments that looks bad on your credit score. I have heard to pay off credit cards ever month or pay large sums to get most of the debt down.

Debt makes a difference, but it isn't a sole factor. Essentially deliquency is the major concern. Every 30 days you should see improvement. It may take up to a year to get over 700 though. Just keep your nose clean for a year and you will see dramatic improvement. especially since you have your debt somewhat under control.
