The most successful hub I've had so far in terms of views, engagement, and comments has the lowest hubscore. I'm not particularly fussed, the hub is doing well and I'm pleased about that, but I'm just confused as to how that number can be raised. How exactly does it work?
I wouldn't worry about the hubscore too much unless it's way below 70. Hubscores don't make you money, views do. Many hubbers have the same issue, my best hub is not my highest scoring hub.
My hub score is 61 but I only wrote my first hub May 19 so at this point I should take it with a grain salt right?
It's possible that your hub ranked well in Google, and that's where your engagement is coming from. You can check by going to MyAccount > TrafficSources.
Another possibility is that your hub is showing up in the "related posts" area of a hub that's doing well. Meaning, anytime someone looks at that hub, there's a link to yours as well.
High scores are always nice to have, but they don't seem to mean a lot as far as earning money is concerned--my best performing hub has a very mediocre score, whereas my worst performing hub has a very high one. Go figure.
Hub score is based on quality after it passes QAP. It may start off low and then allegedly goes up based on traffic.

Looking at my stats just now a new hub has popped into top spot in hub score. One of my very early ones.In 15 months it has collected 368 views, or less that one per day. I don't think it has ever had a click. It has 13 comments on it, of which 6 are replies from me. But it...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of priority about what to do next.Up until now I've been focused on the traffic data and...

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my lowest scoring hubs either..it is right across the board. Is anyone else...

I'm fairly new to HubPages, and I'm trying to figure out how to get my hub scores higher. My first hub did fairly well, along with a couple of my slightly humerous hubs. But my informative ones aren't doing so great. Any suggestions?
