I'm wondering why 2 of my Hubs have such varying scores. Would ya'll mind looking at them and try to help me understand? One with a high score is ISIS in My Pantry. One that seems to me be of similar quality is Preparing for Ebola. Can you tell me why one is scored high and one is scored low? It would help me write better hubs in the future. Thank you!

Your Ebola hub starts with the fact that you don't know. That already tells me your hub is not worth reading to get the facts. There is a link for "design" which presumably has nothing to do with ebola. Then as I scroll down, you go on talking about tuberculosis and Enterovirus and provide lots of links to those, even though that has nothing to do with your title. This probably doesn't affect the score, but your summary (what the search engines see) doesn't say what the hub is about either. Your list of suggestions is way at the bottom of the hub - maybe it should be a prominent feature since that is the title.
Your Isis hub, on the other hand, delivers what it promises. It says there is a list of 5 things and there is a list of 5 things, with lots of details. It is more focused.
Thank you! I edited and my views and score are going up! Any more advice for me!

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...
