I wonder if a more finely delimited ranking system would be a good idea?
For example, instead of having a ranking by Hubpages of 90...would it be possible to have a ranking of 90.3 ? Or whatever.
The point being that decimal-based ranking system would be more accurate and helpful overall.
If that was possible I think it would help authors to understand how the Hubpages algorithm works and how the changes or content affects the algorithm.
I'm not sure how a decimal point will be more helpful.
As for being more accurate I think the only thing it would do is drive more hubbers crazy.
Damn if most hubbers are like me we don't understand the rating system anyway, whish some one could define it ( hello editors ) in more concrete ways than what we get. What I seem to get at best is an oblique explanation of the rating system which seems more unstable than the stock market, so adding a decimal point would probably blow the whole Gig and Meg a Byte thing and my mind as well.

Do hubs with higher scores get better search priority on Google? Just wondering. Thanks.

I keep up with Google news fairly regularly to see what's coming down the pipe. I still feel vague self-righteousness over raising the pre-Panda alarm, only to be scoffed at for suggesting that Google might start...
