I've spent a bit of time creating this hub:
and not much time on this hub:
However the top one has a lower hub score than the bottom one, even though it is full of (what I believe to be) good content, videos, and pictures.
The only thing I can think of is that I did recently make changes to the top one...
Could that make it lose its hub score until I get enough traffic to it?
Thanks for any help you can provide
because one is a "HOW TO" and one is not
the How to's get a higher score..don't ask me why.
I have sooooo given up trying to figure this out. My three highest-traffic hubs are scattered throughout my hub stats, one near the top (hubscore 81), one in the middle (76), and one at the bottom (69). I can't figure out the difference.
Which one is getting more traffic? That's often the biggest factor to consider.
I notice their scores have swapped around now and your build a free website hub now has a higher score. Does one have more comments or thumbs up?
Thanks heaps for your replies,
It looks like things are evening out now... the better one (build a free website) is getting about 50 visitors a day, and the content-lacking other one (make a free website) is getting about 25 visitors a day.
And the hub scores have changed a lot since I posted this question
I guess we can call this "case closed"
Yes, they tend to even out eventually. I've had the same concerns, but in the end my frustration is always dispelled
I think that sometimes people can be offered too much information!
When someone's looking into starting their first ever website, they just want a bit of info - just get some of the basics, go away and think about. This is where you're shorter hub is ideal.
Later on, they'll be back - then they'll want a bit more info. Bang! you hit them with your second hub and they get all the info they need.
I wonder whether any of the traffic you're getting to 'good hub' is being direct from 'bad hub'? That would be interesting to know.
You could put your hubs into a group, webchalk - maybe Web Design Beginners' Tips or something - then they would all link together and after reading one hub, readers would be guided to the next one.
Just a thought.
Scores? I think that it is a matter of "rock, paper, scissors." Or perhaps, a dart thrown at a board? Or maybe, a flip of a coin?
It is also important to take hubpages preference into consideration - they like to see some topics higher ranked than others.
I guess it`s all about different content , that builds up the hub score, and especially links , I have just published this new hub http://hubpages.com/hub/The-internet , entirely written in hubpage`s editor but I did not add anything else , not even a link or a video, just a small picture. When I posted it I was disappointed to the score, 47 ! I never had such a low score and I worked the most on this hub to make it interesting!
Yeah, if you "marinade" them before publishing But this does not affect the final score, you know
LOL - I hadn't thought of it as marinading - I like that one. "Stewing" is a good one too

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

Do you add content to your worst-performing Hub or your best to make it even better? Do you add content to the low-scoring Hubs before the high scorers? What else do you think when you decide when or if to add content to a Hub?

Happy Friday, Hubbers!Next week we will be raising the quality threshold for newly-published Hubs (meaning newly-Featured Hubs will, on the whole, be of higher quality) and will also be giving Featured Hubs (for those with high Hubber Scores) longer grace periods- up to a year for some.More...

I want to know whether the hub score affect the traffic to our hubs!
by Faith Reaper 4 years ago
I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...
