It has something to do with #visits because it change daily, also there is a dupe content factor, and probably the overall score of the hubber figures in. Also the comments. and new comments would count high. And maybe the number inbound links too. I know it runs every 15 minutes or so. Any hints about what the weights are on factors I should be able to look at my hub stats and calculate what the score would be. And what makes hubber kick over from prodigy to expert. Thanks BTW while we are there how is the overall score for hubber figured. New hubs lately, new fans, total fans, hubs per week, recent visits, total visits, ad clicks(?) forum activity, comments other hubs? It is helpful to direct efforts to know which factor is holding me back.
I'm not really sure, but I think that it kinda looks like this when diagrammed.
Here is some info that I found over in the faq: http://hubpages.com/faq/
How is HubScore computed?
HubScore takes into account a number of factors, and will vary quite a bit from the time a Hub is published as data about its performance continues to stream in. The most important HubScore components that you should be concerned with include:
* Amount of traffic, including percentage from sources other than HubPages
* The length of the Hub (the more unique writing, generally, the better)
* The uniqueness of content (copying content already available on the Web will be penalized)
* The number of thumbs-up votes from unique users
* The overall quality of the Hubber (author HubScore and Status)
We reserve the right to change the factors used to assess a Hub’s HubScore as we continue to determine those that measure a great Hub.
The bottom line is if you write original, useful content, your HubScores will reflect the quality and work you've put into them.
Hahahaha Great answer! Actually, you need to translate the labels into Elvish, in the runic alphabet, either that or ogham. It will make more sense to the average hubber that way.
I've read the Hub Pages FAQ but I was looking for actual weights or a formula or something.
Every site like this has some nerd who sets up shill accounts and does word count analysis and graphs their hub results over time, does SPSS scatter plots, calculates the correlation coefficient, basically reverse engineers the hubpages algorithm and reports the results. Or sometimes an engineer from the site will just get on here and tell you.
We don't disclose the exact formula. It's complicated, is subject to change, and we don't want people to come in looking for ways to "work the system."
Darkside has a great hub that compiles the available information about how HubScore works, and ways to improve it.
seems like i've read somewhere that reverse engineering is not allowed... maybe in the tos or something?
yup... not allowed...
"Remove, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer any Hubpages Software (as defined below) or use any network monitoring or discovery software to determine the Website architecture."

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...

What's your take on jealousy among hubbers on Hubpages?I published a hub a few days ago. The hubscore started at 66 and has been doing great. Two nights ago the hub went to 91. A hubber left a comment on the hub - "How did you get that many followers?". The hubber did not say anything...

My title should have read another hub author score question . I have noticed this hubber that puts up a lot of hubs, however, they are all very short, most less than 100-200 words. The type of hub that can be put up in less than 15 mintues. And, the majority of their individual hub scores...

I've been here almost 3 yrs and would like an honest evaluation of some of my hubs. I'm concerned about my low hubscore. I continually study hubs at the learning center, participate in forums, comment on hubs, re-title and revise hubs, and have reached over 300,000 page views. I...

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...
