I have come to the conclusion, that whatever rating system hubpages is using to rate hubs, it must be designed to baffle, irritate, befuddle, perplex,confuse, aggravate, outrage, annoy, offend, and torment.
The ratings system is actually rather easy to understand. Hub authors who achieve a balance of having quality content that's original, a decent flow of traffic, and whose visitors find the Hubs useful and thus interact with the various features get higher scores which will fluctuate across a moderate range as the different factors change.
If HubPages disclosed what they actually do, spammers would just game the system and then everyone would feel like you've chosen to feel.
I agree with relache! This mystery keeps us going and inspires us to produce consistent quality of work!
That sounds insightful to me. I'm still in the mindset of using HubPages only as an alternative to Ezine Articles where you post and forget.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some...

I think I know something about writing articles. I created a new hub yesterday. HubPages took 24 hours before declaring, in one of their mystery messages, that it was of sufficient quality. You know what? It was too...
