    I have received over 250 views today on my top hub however my hubscore has decreased. Is it that hubpages take into account the percent of rate it up hits along with the hub views. say a percent of viewers have to click the rate it up button  in order to increase your hub score. this is how it seems.

    Anyone know anything maybe you have experienced your hubscore go down on a popular page as not everyone notices the rate it up button.

      If you read you'll see that there is no one factor that will clearly boost HubScores.

      Where did those 250 pageviews come from?  How long did those folks stick around?  How did they interact with that Hub? 

      There are lots of pages on the internet about Google and keywords, so perhaps that Hub isn't as original and useful as it could be.

      Hubscore is calculated based on many factors. Hub views is not the only factor. Make comment in other hub, forum, built backlink to your hub.

    hmm.. it's hard to say. but, i got good score for long hub and of course you need to write new and fresh content because your writing style will presents you, although without good grammar, well i mean as long as you provide valuable information. hmm..
    for my most popular hub, its score will decrease when my traffic lower than two days ago. think it's normal..

    do a search for hubs about hub scores and you will find all kinds of info on it. I think most of us have come to the realization that it is a number of factors that increase/decrease your score. Which include--

    amount and quality of original content
    community activity
    views/ traffic
    rate ups and downs

      yes I agree with Janetta, although I have yet to come across this problem I have noticed the importance of content quality. Occasionally my hub ranking decreases while the hub score remains high. I guess many factors calculate the hub score.

    I have a feeling you know how to get traffic in pretty subtle ways, getpaidtopost.

      No just dont think many people click the rate it up button as they don's notice it. Just guessing though.

    I'm sure there is an official equation but I don't think it is available.  I have yet to be able to track my score based on hub creation, traffic, forum activity, or number of fans.  Those factors will vary but the varying of the score doesn't show any correlation to the varing of the factors.

    I have collated all the information I've found with reference to the hubscore algorithm here.

    Thanks all for your comments, I have noticed many of you talk about unique content, I can be sure this is not a problem with my hubs as all my contents is hand written by me, I never straight swap cut and past content.

      Janettaposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      changing a few words around is still cutting and pasting. Original Content means ORIGINAL, as in not found somewhere else. I have seen other posts from you and I am wondering if that is what you do---find things you like and switch words around??  If so, that's not good. Yes, there is a lot that's already been done, but you should still try to be original, not copy others in any way.

      Dolores-- I was told there is no way to tell sad I wish there were. I would like to know too. Then we might have an idea about ones we should fix or leave alone.  smile

    AE, I think this topic will be with us forever.
    Is there a way to tell how many thumbs up or thumbs down you've got on one particular hub? It would be good information.

    Be sure to try to get traffic from outside HubPages.  That can help, you can get it with article marketing and backlink strategies, and then track your visitors with Google Analytics so you can see where they're all coming from. I like Ezinearticles for a source of outside traffic, as well as other article directories.

    Janette, that's what I mean, if you have several thumbs down, it sure would mean something, and be something to consider. Then you have to wonder if people gives thumbs up or thumbs down for political or personal reasons - if they are in agreement with your way of thinking or not.
