I was just thinking about something.
When I look at my traffic sources in my account, the ones from google are much higher than hubpages.com.
I like the idea of the hubmob thread, and in the spirit of sharing, I thought it might be a good idea, if it doesn't exist already, to start a thread where people can post their latest hub links, regardless of what it is. It doesn't have to have a particular theme.
It could help give the community a boost, and get everyone some more page views, and any other good reason that I haven't thought of.
So how about it, we could call it "How's my Hubbing?"
I see what your intention is, but I don't think a forum thread would achieve what you mean it to. It would just turn into a link dump, without fostering any real community interaction. We have the Extreme Hub Makeover forum for those who'd like feedback on their hubs, but we don't encouarge people to link to their hubs in the forums otherwise.
Maybe it could turn into a link dump, but I think it's partially unfair that some of us have higher hub scores than hubs that are on the homepage.
I know there's a lot of debate over how the hubscores are actually calculated, and personally I don't understand how it works.
The other day I had one hub with a lot of page views but it only had a hubscore of 58, and then another brand new article I wrote had 66 with only a few views.
Then, suddenly, the one with 58 shot up to 73 with just one extra view, so I'm a little puzzled.
If the scores are dependant on how many views you have (and the length of the article, so I've read) then why do some of mine have low-ish scores? My articles are all fairly to very long.
I'm not sure what you mean. Personal author score and hubscore are two different things.
Hubscore is dependent on a number of factors, not just traffic. Darkside wrote a hub that summarizes the things we've said about it: http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubscore
Hope that helps.
Many have questioned how a page is scored, and yes it is puzzling. The reason why I think it might have jumped so high from one additional person is because the person found your hub through a site ranked higher. Aka you find someone on Google and it helps the score so much and if you find them on SearchTiger you get MORE then the Google search. That might have something to do with it or not, personally I don't let it affect me.
(this is an example on my understanding, and I don't know if its accurate or if SearchTiger exists.

The scoring system of habpages is either fundamentally flawed or purposely biased in favor of long hubs. You said it hubpages team: the more, the merrier, but I donâ��t think that this is in your interest, or the...

Is it me or have the Hub scores been fluctuating more drastically the last week or so?

My title should have read another hub author score question . I have noticed this hubber that puts up a lot of hubs, however, they are all very short, most less than 100-200 words. The type of hub that can be put...

Why is my new hub scored so low? I started a new monicker to write on a very different subject, but my first hub is only rated a 74 and it's been up for 2 weeks. I'm used to 80s and 90s scores. Please provide feedback,...

During my time on HP I have head/seen/read a lot of speculation about the scoring system. I have given up trying to figure out my profile score but my articles are different. As I understand it the more views, vote up...

I have been on HP for a while, but why do some hubs lose score, but increase in traffic at the same time?It is kind of ironic. Some hubs go to 90-100 with lower traffic, but then they go to 85ish with higher traffic.
