This may not be practically useful since what's counted is the traffic, but I can't help myself being curious.
I have a toy hub that is not very long but surely not short, and was written by my daughter all from her own words, and it has been generating 50 to around 100 daily visits since it was published, yet the score has been quite low (it is 65 as of this moment). I know short, copied, empty hubs don't get good scores, but would like to know (pure curiosity) what keep a hub like this one at low scores?
It's not just content or traffic that affect a hub score - no one really knows what the mix is. Comments do seem to give them a push though. I've also seen no correlation between the hub score and how much money it makes me. That's probably because of the 60/40 split.
I really try and not think about it too much.
Who really knows but the fact your daughter wrote the whole thing by herself is 100 in my eyes
You should create your daughter a hubpages account so that she can write whatever she wants. And in the near future she will be the best blogger ever in history of mankind
That is some kind of "praise" and she has to be overwhelmingly flattered. She indeed enjoys writing (not like me, writing only for $$) and is a pretty good writer. In fact, she's been talking about selling her creative crafts or drawing online, creating some kind of website of her own ideas, etc., I hope that will be one way of making living for her in the future. She inherits my hubpages account for sure

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What...

I have had a few hubs moved to various niche sites with hub scores ranging from 69 to 87. I feel I have much better hubs remaining on the original site than some of those selected to move, especially my latest which was...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or...

I would like a better explanation of the Hub Score. I have a Hub that I uploaded on May 12th, it's ranked #2 on Google search results for its main keyword phrase, it's getting 175 visits per day sent by Google,...
