Can someone explain to me why two or three of my stories that are seldom hit on, if never, and then only by hubbers have very top scorring, while one piece that regularly gets between 100 and 150 hits a day from google and other search engines all over the world sinks lower and lower with hub scoring.
It truly doesn't make sense.
don't forget it's a program that determines the score and HP says "It [hubscore] will also fluctuate quite a bit, seemingly at random"
Saleheensblog, it's been like this from the beginning. It truly doesn't make sense! I'm going to email them and ask.
This is the age old question of many writers here. I have no clue other than someone wrote a program that scores us automatically, most of us anyway.
I think the HubScore looks at too recent information. For example, if the daily traffic plays an important role in calculating the HubScore then the HubScore will fluctuate a lot. Daily traffic can change easily and often. But if the HubScore would value the traffic over 30 days more then it won't fluctuate so easily.
Simeon, thanks I think you're right. Please can you delete your post. I've been warned that people copy one's work when they think it's successful. I don't want that to happen!
How do I delete a post? I don't see a delete button... only for posts that have not been replied to yet...
Click next to more and you'll see it extends and gives you a delete option...
Hubscore does not revolve around traffic. My hub that receives the most traffic isn't even in my top 10 when it comes to hubscore. In fact, its hubscore is only 78.
The bigger question is, who cares?
It would help if the HubScore was more accurate. Then we could say to newbies: simply look at your HubScore to see how you're doing. But now we're confusing everyone with a number that is meaningless. HubScore should take traffic into account because traffic apparently tells you more than any calculation.
My suspicion is that hubscore has to do with quality and not traffic.
simeon - can you please delete your post with reference to Sophia's hub?
I believe the delete button is only available for a limited time after posting - maybe up to 2 hours or something like that.

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

Low scoring hubs usually is accompanied by low traffic. Maybe they are just badly written, no keywords or SEO,uninteresting, etc.What do you do with Hubs - Edit them, or Eliminate and rewrite

why is is that one particular hub will have a great increase in traffic for one day, then fall off again?sometimes it's an older hub that had no activity the day before and then very little the day after

is it better to just delete low scoring hubs

Would you delete your low scoring non performing Hubs to increase your overall HubScore?

Should I comment with brutal honesty when a hub just doesn't make sense?I want others to be honest with me, when leaving comments, regarding my writing. But I don't know if others want the same. I'm not here to hurt the feelings. However, I just read a hub and I had to ask myself was I seeing it...
