How is the order of hubs on topic pages determined?

    Hi there,

    I'm just curious - Does anyone know how the order of individual hubs on topic pages is determined? Is it by traffic, hubscore or something else?

    Hubs on Topic Pages are ranked by something we internally refer to as "HeatScore", which is a combination of HubScore and recency. big_smile

    It is of course always wonderful when a genuine question by a genuine Hubber is answered very quickly by a staff member who is in the know. It's one of the things that makes Hub Pages so great, above all other sites.

    Sadly, pathetic and idiotic comments by those who have no knowledge of Hub Pages or who haven't even had the decency to make the attempt to get to know Hub Pages before making their offensive, obnoxious and ridiculous comments tend to somewhat spoil the experience for other users. I feel no further need to address a certain idiot - I merely suggest they return to their obnoxious domain and remain there...

    Please make this the last farewell, worst-of-hp

    Good bye and good riddance!

    Gordon Hamilton, I agree it is nice to get quick answers. I have noticed both derek's and Simones presence here more as of late trying to communicate to our concerns as hubbers ( which has been really nice), however, I must admit 
    worst-of-hp has a point (not how I would have made it but just as effective). I'm not sure what Simone means by recency and if traffic determines placement then doesn't that defeat the purpose. Maybe a better choice would be placing hubs which pass QAP but have NOT garnered much traffic and are in danger of being idled. This would be helping hubbers who need the exposure....just a thought....

    Thanks Simone for the answer it is greatly appreciated and an interesting question to be asking.
