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.

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more!...
