    I think I am still a little baffled by this but I realize that the hubs that get the most external traffic are the ones in the 70 - 80 range. The hubs with higher scores are mostly HP readers.

    There is a hub that sits at 78 for the longest while and when I checked the stats the ratio was astounding for 80% of all the views were from other traffic sources mainly Google.

      Your not alone -  I got just 14 hubs and can therefore see exactly whats going on.

      Two of my hubs that receive just 1 visit a day from HP has the highest scores and even reaches 90 at times. Where as the other one getting 25 google hits a day is between 70 - 80 mostly 76 or so..

        Hey Sis!


        Brandon, the hubs in 80s are the ones making the dough.

    Just goes to show that the numbers don't mean that much. Many of us pay too much attention to them.

      Maybe if some creative veteran hubber wrote a jingle and set it to music, it would make a bigger impression, and sink in. How about to the tune of Billy Preston, "Nothing from Nothing"?

      Hub-ber and Hub scores mean nothing...

        Rochelle, I am learning my lesson.


        Rmcrayne, that was funny  lol . Maybe we do need the jingle to learn to stop paying so much attention to scores.

    I kind of like that they're not my "best" ones.

    If they were, then other users could target the best ones and remake them in hopes of piggybacking off of profitable ideas.

    I actually kind of wonder if the hub staff intended hubscore to work that way.

      It's a possibility. But, no one can beat you in your own niche big_smile

      Melbel, you are right. One hubber I know does that but she rewrites them so well that you can't flag her. None of her hubs have the comments capsule activated.
