Hi, I was wondering what was the algorithm behind HP's way of ranking or listing published articles on specific Topic pages. Of course, we all want the top position(s) because I guess that's what gives our hubs more visibility (and obviously more pageviews), but then, how do we earn these top spots on Topic pages?
It's not like the first-listed hubs have more quality, or are longer, or older, or better-rated, or have more comments, or are from people with more followers... So it's a bit confusing to me.
As a newbie still on Boot Camp, I like publishing quality featured stuff, and I won't compromise on quality. But I must say I'm intrigued here
If you guys can help with your insight... It'd be super great!
When you are starting your Hub you select the best topic which you feel your subject should be under. After you choose to publish your Hub it goes through the Hub Hopper to be rated by the other Hubbers and then the staff evaluates the best score/rating on your Statistics page.
From there it all depends on the quality of the Hub (spelling/grammar, photos/videos, etc.); keeping it updated; and traffic flow.
Good point The Examiner... That must be it
Your only chance of getting a real answer to this question rests on the possibility that Paul Deeds is very, very bored this morning.
You might get some SEO fiends pretending they know, of course.
That will be fun.

I'm speaking mainly on your HubPages account, but also any side (or main) blogs. Do you think it hurts or helps your Hubs to have a diverse group of articles or is it better if it's all about one thing?

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were...
