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.
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.

What' your most searched topic on Hub Pages?I find I don't really go through the topics when I'm hanging out on the forums, I just look at what's been recently posted, possibly go through the free form section. Where do you find you linger?

Assuming you care to be visible to big G.1. Start with a niche topic that can get a lot of search results. Use the adword keyword tool to find it. If you don't know what that is google "adword keyword tool". 2. Make a hub based on that topic that is somewhat broad concerning that...

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were very successful and even now still have scores above 70 or higher.One of the hubs...

I've been writing here for quite a few years, I go back to the ancient era before the 'featured' 'not featured' declension.I have found that 'fixing' a Hub which is not featured is a total waste of time, as in a day or so, after a fix, it is back to unfeatured. I did an experiment and I can...

In his hub 'What We Don't Know About Google Panda?', Paul Edmondson points out that Google seems to expect sites to leap high above any bar that might reasonably be set for quality purposes.Paul seems less than happy with Google's attitude. He seems to think that if a page can somehow limp over...
