Ok, let's see-what is the most important to you?
A>A Hubs Hubscore ranking.
B>The Hubs content and level of help it gives you when read.
The reason why I ask this is there are some Hubs with ranks of like 44 that have really good content, just not a good Hubscore, and I think people are so focused on a Hubscore that if the level is lower then they don't bother to read it! So what do you think, I'd love to hear your responses.
B>A Hubs content and level of help it gives you when read. It is what really makes a good article, sure it might have some copied content from other places (like lists) and it might not have more then one picture. But the content is still good it just means you need to read Don't get me wrong, I love the ranking system and like trying to better my Hubs to keep the score up. But really, I don't personally believe that they should be ignored or thought less of because of Hubscore.
I agree with you. Many good hubs have a low rating. I think a lot of it has to do with the popularity of the topic too. If it is a subject that many people want to read about, it will get a much higher score. JMO!
B. If the content is actually helpful, then search engines should send traffic to the hub, which is one of the factors in computing hubscore. I don't worry about HP views; I'm more focused on outside traffic. So the score being low doesn't bother me, if I know that the content is good enough to drive traffic.
Plus, you have to remember that when you first publish a hub, the score is generally pretty low, and will fluctuate within the first few days, even the first few weeks.

Seems like my higher scoring hubs do not drive as much traffic as the mid range or even crazy low range. And that older hubs have more traffic even with low scores. And that earnings follow traffic and not scores.All my...

I feel good when my score is going up. I feel important and get noticed by others.

You can't. Just had to put that out there as I'm seeing newbies all over the forums going on about these topics lately.Serious money comes from getting views from Google NOT from having other hubbers visit your work....

Dear HubTeam:I know there have been a few forum threads about this topic, but hear me out please. By the way, this thread refers to the rating down of hubs, not flagging. I have no problem with the flagging feature and...

Methinks I spoke too soon.I'm back down in the low 70s.I'm really at a loss now, because I have deleted links, added links, added content to several pages, and created half a dozen new hubs in a new group, all to...
