What makes hub score go up and down?
Take several Hubs on your list... watch their scores from day to day... Maybe the top three or five even. One day number five ends up number one... and number one goes down several slots. Im watching it all... and trying to figure it our because it is obviously is not by counted hits or I would see it in page views... there have been no accolades awarded so that is not it.... What makes some articles rise to the top with few page views and others (Better articles even) drop down in Hub score?
It can depend largely on the content of the hub. How many text capsules do you have? Photo capsules? Do you use links, or youtube videos?
Are there a lot of comments on your hub? Community interaction can have long ranging effects on a hub. Are there links to your hub in other places on the internet? This can cause it to get a higher rating.
And of course views, which when factored in can help a hub raise it's score. Top views doesn't necessarily mean top hub. My hub with the highest score is my hub about supernatural powers which has a ton of comments on it. But my hub with the most views is a poem about moving forward in life after a breakup.
I have one hub that is on the first page of Google search results, and gets lots of hits (about Iran & war) the other hub that gets few hits at all is on the third page of Google... about a poisoning situation. Just weird. Thanks for commenti
If you suggest links to other hubs within your own hub then you increase your 'hub karma' which increases your score, this is just one contributing factor to your overall score.
What I have realized is that my hubs that get the most views from Hubpages tend to rise faster than those that get organic traffic. Other hubbers say different but your score depends also on the amount of feedback, votes and so forth. For instance I publish two hubs on the same day and one climbs faster. The one that climbs faster is the one with more HP hits and comments. The other with less HP views and comments will lag. Based on one year of observations (my personal opinion) is that the calculations are based on several factors including how popular the hub is on the site. The calculation results are delayed so you will see the hub climb even after the traffic has trickled.

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total...
