    Why is one of my mediocre Hub on top of all my other Good hubs?

    it has a score of 73. But I have only published it 3 days ago and it ONLY had 12 visits in those 3 days. I have other hubs that got 500 visits, are bigger and nicer...
    Anyone cares to explain?
    In case you go visit my page, I am talking about this hub: How I built my online empire Week 1. And see there is a hub about BSOD with 500 visits and it ranks lower.
    IS there anything I should know about hub scores and ranking?

    Thanks for taking the time to respond!!!

    I get tired of answering this question.  Hubstaff knows the author rating system and the hub rating system.  Nobody else but hub staff knows how the system works.

    Dude, it's software - it's rated by votes, and by software.  Nobody but staff can answer your question with any certainty, and they aren't going to tell you - they've not told anyone else.

    I know what you mean.  I can't always figure out why some hubs are listed as "best" over other hubs.  It must have something to do with the keywords, tags, and title of the hub.  I know if you write about something that not many people have covered, the system will automatically give it a better score and the hub sometimes gets posted on the "best" page.  I guess in the end, it is a mystery.
