    Just curious,  I have a Hub that has had 47 views but it has a score of 90.  I don't understand. I have Hubs that have many more views, but a lower score.  Anybody have an answer??

      This is how Hubscore is computed:

      HubScore takes into account many factors and will change over time as data about its performance continues to stream in. It will also fluctuate quite a bit, seemingly at random, and that is nothing to worry about. The most important HubScore components that you should be concerned with include:

          Amount of traffic - including percentage from reputable sources other than HubPages

          The reputation of the Hubber - your Hubber Score and contribution to the community

          The response of readers to your Hub - including comments, thumbs up, etc.

          The uniqueness of content - copying content already available on the web will be highly penalized

    Hubscore fluctuates and it's based on many factors.

    It shouldn't matter, simply because Hubscore has nothing to do with earnings. It's an internal rating system for HP's Community. It doesn't add or subtract to the value of the content either. Again, making it meaningless, except to boost the ego.

      Thanks.  I don't usually even look at the Hubscore.  I care more about the total views on a Hub.

        Total views aren't really your best indication either.  Views that come from search are more usually more important than referral views (not always, though) and both are (again, usually) more important than views by other hubbers and rss feed readers.

      I think the hub score may affect any links in your hub. So if you link to a website, and your hub page ranking is below a certain figure, the link will be a "nofollow" type - making the link less advantageous.

        Yes that is true. However, the standard of content HP's continues to provide(aside from much of the junk written) and other various rules and guidelines HP has provided, should grant ANY individual from having to deal with it's so-called minimum requirement for "nofollow" and "dofollow" links.

        I've produced many hubs and I watched as the scores went UP mostly and then settle between a range. That's being said, that range is 67-96. I have had ONE hub start out at 50 go down to 44, but presently resides between 75-85.

        The scoring for "nofollow" and "dofollow" links is 40 score for a hub AND an authorscore/hubberscore of 75. If you have a hub that's that low and while at the same time have a 74 or lower score on your profile, then YOU are doing something seriously wrong.
