I've seen the explanations about what affects our hub scores. Does anybody know if this is accomplished by a computer or is there a human factor involved?
Thank you all in advance.
Actually, Linda is not correct, as there are some human review factors that are a part of how HubScores get calculated.
The people who rate and review Hubs view the Hub Hopper (a part of the Quality Assessment Process) do have some effect on HubScores, but it is not the majority determination.
It is a completely automated summary of many factors some of what happen to be crowdsourced. No person deliberately decides what the number is.
It is all down to the moods of the HP internet fairies and gnomes - if you add a liberal sprinkling of fairy dust to your hubs then your scores will increase to the magical 100 level
On the other hand, it might just be by a vote of the most perceptive and astute people on staff...... Or maybe a dumb machine.
Actually these two are the ones who decide what your scores will be.......any questions???

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...
