I understand it's possible to have a hub that gets pretty good traffic and have the score be lower, but this does not make sense.
The hub is at 69 and receives over 100 views and already has 30 comments or so. I will admit that this hub is more like a blog entry, but not quite.
Is there something that I could of done wrong to the hub for it to keep plunging in score?
What is the traffic per day? Other thing to look at would be length, whether you accidentally put too many links to one site etc. Perhaps post it to the feedback forum?
I must admit I automatically sort my hubs by weekly traffic, I wish I could use that as a default. Traffic and CPM is what I care about.
You've simultaneously stated that the content is sort of weak and yet insisted that couldn't possibly be the reason for a lower score. I think that actually sounds like the most plausible reason.
Why don't you determine what the hub visitors would find more useful compared to the current blog-like content and then improve the hub?
Score does not depend solely on traffic. There are many factors, including how much of that traffic comes from outside of HubPages. I suspect, it it is blog-like content, most of your traffic is internal.
Thanks for the reply guys. The funny thing is, the traffic is from outside HubPages, it is google traffic. It was receiving a few hundred hits a day.
The article is more of a blog entry, however, it is informational as well. More like a hybrid between article and blog.
My best hub usually sits around 69 hubscore but gets 1000 views a day lol

Do you add content to your worst-performing Hub or your best to make it even better? Do you add content to the low-scoring Hubs before the high scorers? What else do you think when you decide when or if to add content...

I just shared the crap out of a Hub I wrote that I think is pretty good (the one on longevity called "The First Person to Live to Be 200 Years Old is Alive Today"), and it seems to be a home run. In just...

I cannot understand how my most read hub never makes it to the top and just stays around 75 and never to 100 as many of my less popular ones do? How can this be?

This is curious: my top five hubs, with the highest scores, display a significant drop-off in page views. I am not complaining about the scores, or the fact that they remain in the top 5. I'm just...

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...
