The shares are determined at random each time a page is displayed. The affiliate id generally has to actually be output as part of the page, so we don't really have the luxury of deciding whose share it is after a click
They are chosen at random, so there is no guarantee that in 10 page views that it will be exactly 4 and 6. It will follow a binomial distribution. I explained the statistics behind it a little more a while back.
Currently about 600 new hubs are published a day (which is one new hub every 2 minutes or so). 15-20% of hubs end up eventually being unpublished by Maddie for a violation or removed by their author (for whatever reason).
Total Published Hubs: 135,242 Total Published Users: 27,629
Hubs with 1,000+ views in the last month: 1,929 Hubs with 100+ views in the last month: 13,591 Hubs with 10+ views in the last month: 61,703
If there are about 600 hubs published a day that would come to 219 000 hubs a year of those lost 20%...that is still 175 000 give or take per year.

Now where is that remote tropical island with internet connection? I've got some mega reading to do...I'll see ya guys in 5.4 years...to pick up the next few years worth of reading material)zs
Just because there are 600 hubs being published a day now doesn't mean that was always the case! In fact, we get more hubs a day now than were created in the first two months of our existence combined. However, some of the hubs from the early days are still around and doing quite well. You can find the earliest hubs here (you might have to page up a few pages, depending on when you access this link):

Some hubbers are taking the mick with it. It's spamming. It's not allowed in the forums. If you want attention promote yourself according to good manners. Not by over spamming in the questions section.
