Before we can rate hubs, do we need to classify them first?

    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? smile

      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.
