Why do highest scoring hubs get zero traffic for days?
...and why do they not even show up on a google search when typed in word for word?
Well, the short answer is that the scores are not really indicative of anything useful. Scores that appear on hubs are influenced by word count, number of images, comments, and internal traffic, but these things don't have much to do with external search engine traffic -- which is what you actually need to make money on HubPages. Likewise the little number on your profile doesn't reflect anything meaningful except your level of activity on the site.
If you want to increase the number of views your articles are getting, here are a few things I've found to be helpful.
(1) Google articles on the same subject and look at the types of key words that are used. You might be using key word phrases that are not commonly searched for, or not enough synonymous terms.
(2) Make sure you have search engine friendly titles. Clever titles seem not to do as well. If you are really attached to your creative titles, try adding a subtitle.
(3) Link out from your more popular articles. If you have two or three articles that get a lot of hits, you can leverage that to increase the page views for your other articles by creating a few links.
I believe it has to do with the keywords associated with your hub. Maybe its among those with high competition making it hard for your hub to achieve a high page rank.
I think you have to go hard on hub articles now days and write a lot of quality to get any forum of traction. My old hubs get great traffic now but they have been there for a year now

Why do you think the hub with the highest score was scored higher than your others? Interested to know.

For the past few days my CPM rates have gone sky high- higher in fact than they were in December. Is anybody else experiencing surprisingly high CPMs? I thought I would find out before I got too excited.
