I have always felt that the hub score really didn't mean anything - but with the new niches it seems even more apparent.
Hubs with scores of 90+ have not made it into the niches, while other hubs with lowers scores have - doesn't make sense to me and therefore calls into question the whole hub score system.
Good point, Simey. This is a good time to revamp the QAP algorithm. However, with all that's going on, it may not be at the top of the HP priority list.
I am not sure that it has anything to do with hub score as I have had several with lower scores than that selected. It may have more to do with traffic numbers.
I do think you may have a better chance of Hubs being selected if you remove all but one of the Amazon hubs and also make the titles shorter. It might even lessen the load on staff and put the hub back to where it might be more likely to be seen. Just a thought!

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...
