    I'm really interested in what makes my "best hubs" the "best."  Some of them are pretty low as...

    far as a traffic count goes, but I'd imagine that those have more unique content.  I'm positive that traffic and hubscore are mutually exclusive, and that comments have absolutely nothing to do with it.  Is it unique content that scores highest?  It think that it is, but I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree.

    Oh dear, we all want that...honor your style. That is the best way. You are right. Traffic, hubscore and the money are all different things here on hubpages...What is your mission? When you have identified it it will be easier.
    We all would like to get paid, this is a dream of all writers, not necessarily  because they need it but because it is a physical proof, that they are reaching an audience, a validation in one sense, of the importance of their effort. But true writing is effortless. Just follow your heart.

    I'm guessing the biggest factor is how unique the hub is to this website. My most popular hubs are about a 3D rendering program called DAZ Studio, and when I do a search for it here on HubPages, my articles populate the first two pages. So apparently they didn't have a whole lot of content about that subject when I signed up. If you can find a subject that hasn't been done to death, it will likely be regarded as a 'best' hub. That said, I do think traffic factors in, but not nearly as much. From what I've seen, it's like unique hubs only need a little traffic to be the best, but others need considerably more.

    I can not answer your question with any certainty.  But, I may be able to relate.......

    My own personal hub, ( written by me) attracted little attention.  Very little.  Few even bothered to read it.  It was well structured, good grammar etc......I spent a lot of time, getting it 'just right'.  There was little interest.

    Some of the hubs that I hurried through have done very well.

    It must come down to the interest of the readers!

    See I'm very much of the school of thought that hubs about weight loss or monetary gain are the top issues.

    I have no idea but HubPages was meant to let everyday experts express themselves so I'm guessing subjects that teach things are highly rated if they have good content.

    I've done some Google searches using my Hub titles and was pleased to note they turn up on the first page of a Google search and that has to be good because anyone doing a Google search is going to see the Hub on page one of the search.  That is good.... very good.  Some people pay big bucks to get that and there are companies devoted to getting a page on page one of a Google search.

    I'm all a bit confused as to what the rankings next to a hub are. I've hubs that get ten fold more traffic than they used to and yet the scores have gone down. I've added new hubs that get very few views and the scores have gone up over time. I think they like to keep it a mystery otherwise it would soon be exploited!

    I'm hardly what you would call a pro hubber, but I do seek out the top Hubbers who are also professional internet marketers and I have come to a conclusion of sorts.

    There are some top Hubbers with very high profile scores, who write top notch hubs yet probably don't do any keyword or niche research and really don't gear their hubpages for search engine queries or commercial earning$$$.

    On the other hand there are some other top scoring Hubbers which do well within the Hubpage environment but also get loads of traffic from search queries.

    In summing a hubber really want's the largest possible audience, but especially so if they are looking to make a buck.

    It's a cold hard fact that the best way people will find your content is through search engine query so it pays to monitor where your hubpage traffic is coming from and if all of it is coming from within hubpages, you might want to make some SEO changes and do some focused backlinking.
