    Hi,

    I've seen the explanations about what affects our hub scores. Does anybody know if this is accomplished by a computer or is there a human factor involved?

    Thank you all in advance.

      maybe it is part of human views that generate the score  but i think is the traffic that makes the system to calculate the score

    Actually, Linda is not correct, as there are some human review factors that are a part of how HubScores get calculated. 

    The people who rate and review Hubs view the Hub Hopper (a part of the Quality Assessment Process) do have some effect on HubScores, but it is not the majority determination.

    It is a completely automated summary of many factors some of what happen to be crowdsourced.  No person deliberately decides what the number is.

    I strongly suspect that voodoo is involved.

      That explains it.
      Those suspicious ions were right.

    It is all down to the moods of the HP internet fairies and gnomes - if you add a liberal sprinkling of fairy dust to your hubs then your scores will increase to the magical 100 level

      I don't care, either, but that explains a lot.

    On the other hand, it might just be by a vote of the most perceptive and astute people on staff...... Or maybe a dumb machine.
