Ratings changes?

    While obsessing over a hub's first few days after publication, I've noticed that ratings will often -- quite often -- change, even when traffic is static.

    A hub's rating (and the overall rating for me) will go up or down, though none of my hubs have seen additional traffic.

    Sometimes a hub will get a few more page views and the rating will go down, but there are no flags or anything like that -- no comments, either.

    I'm just curious as to why.

    Is there a detailed description of how ratings are calculated somewhere?

    I've looked, but cannot find one.

    Thanks for helping out a new hub-guy.

      No, not really because then scores could be gamed.

      From the HubPages FAQ

      The amount of time a person stays on your hub could be a contributing factor.

      Pure speculation on my part, but if you had 5 people check it yesterday and left as soon as they came it may not have the same effect then having one person today who sticks around long enough to have read every single word in your hub.

      It's not exact, but it is detailed. Though it still doesn't have all the answers: My hub on HubScore.
