Increasing traffic, decreasing hubscore

    Could someone shed some light on how my hubscore for a certain article could be decreasing while my traffic goes up? Early today it was 86 and now it has dropped to 78 though all the while, my traffic has been steadily increasing. I read the 'help' section and they said they would deduct a hub's score when there are excessive unrelated links. I can't really discern what is considered to be unrelated and I really wish that you people can help me.Thanks a bunch.

    Hubscore is affected by a number of factors, traffic being just one of the many. Don't worry, fluctuation by 10 points up and down is normal in my opinion.
    This hub is considered by many hubbers to be #1 source about hubscore algorithms:

    Your hub could be attracting large numbers of viewers but they could all hate it and give it the thumbs down.  This would push the hubscore down even through traffic were high.  Obviously there are other factors also affecting the hub score.

      How long viewers stay on a hub affects score.  Short hub, short view time.
