Everybody have different values and thus rate hubs different. However, are we really rating the same things?
I see 3 general categories of hubs:
a) Information: What is _____, How to ______
b) Persuasion: Why you should _____
c) Other / Art: Poetry, Satire, Parody, etc.
An art/other hub will probably score low on actual information content. A parody would have virtually no useful information.
Do we need to classify hubs into the three separate categories, so we know what we are really rating?
Did I miss a category?
Did I just waste my time and yours with this hare-brained scheme?
It's not that complicated: look at the keywords a searcher would type into google to get to the hub. Would someone who typed those keywords think this the hub was a decent answer to their search?
If yes, then you rate it up.
If no, then you rate it down.
Of course, there are times where a hub is simply funny, pleasant, or worthwhile where you may still rate it up regardless, because you think it is a good article.
Here's my classifications.
1. Humour / entertainment / flippancy / jokes / cartoons / kitten pictures / risque videos.
2. Art, poetry, music, - all those arty things. Risque videos
3. Toasters. Camisoles.
4. Other - info and so on. Boring stuff.

I have hubs within a couple of niches which I don't cover all that much; meaning, I don't have that many hubs in those niches. A good number of those hubs have a high bounce rate. So, I'm considering unpublishing those, putting them somewhere else. However, some of them get a good amount of traffic...

I just got the "happy" news that one of my hubs about Cancer Moon Sign People has been moved to Exemplore. I don't feel happy, it was moved there months ago, and there was nothing wrong with it. It was well written when I wrote it.I give links on hubs like this so people can find...

How to create sections for different categories of your hubs on your profile page?I've put my hubs under different groups. But on my profile page doesn't reflect that. I've seen many hubbers grouped their hubs under different categories and arranged them nicely on their profile pages...

I don't understand something.If the average time people spend on an article is 4.5 minutes, how can the bounce rate be 90%? Doesn't 'bounce' mean that they just go on the site for a split second and then go off?
