I have written 4 hubs and I still can't figure out how hubscores work. All my hubs are basically...
the same length, the have the same layout, have the same links and capsules etc, but the ones with the most views have lower scores then those with the least views. Can someone please tell me why and how this works? I would be very much appreciative..thank you.
HubScores are mysterious things... but the FAQ does offer up some info about them,
Well, although FAQ explains things nicely I guess you would of read it by now, so here is the deal.
There are several aspects that influence the hub score, some may argue this but this is from my own experience.
You said that some have more views but lower hub score, that is mostly due to two simple facts:
a) too much competition in that topic and your hub cannot be compared as quality hub, no matter the views
b) not an interesting topic and your hub simply can't get a higher view until the topic in general get's noticed by public
All in all you can get the score higher by writing insightful hubs that will make people want to comment, that is a good way of seeing if your hub is any good, more comments, more food for thought, and of course bigger score. Linking to your hub is also a way to get your rating up, and I mean not just linking from other hubs, but from other sites, ezines and blogs, those backlinks will help your score for another reason. HubPages (again, this is according to my experience) will give you a greater score for visitors that come from other sites than for the ones that come from HubPages, which is mostly 90% of our traffic at first.
Hope this helps as it is not fact but something I noticed along the way!

I am sort of disappointed. I try to be active in the site as much as possible, comment on other people's hubs, help out in the forums, add new hubs once every two weeks, participate in the question and answer and my hubscore is slowly decreasing. Any advice from expert Hubbers on how to...

I can't figure out why some of my hubs have much lower scores than others...Comparable hubs, getting roughly the same amount of traffic, are upwards of forty points different from each other. One of my recent ones is at a 44 while one of my slightly older ones, of almost the same set up, is an 86....

Why does it bug me so much when I see my hubscores going down? It is not supposed to matter, especially when it is just a point or 2 but it really gets to me.

As I have found today! I was led to believe that hubs of 75 and over were worth holding on to but obviously not! I just had one with a score of 81 getting the zzs!
