    I remark that each time I correct a page - I'm french so that my english grammar is sometimes faulty - I remark the score goes down.

    Also the score doesn't seem to be related to the length or to the traffic as for example this one is rather lengthy and got one of the best traffic ever within one hour:

    So how does it work ? Don't tell me you do like Google so that it is a secret smile

    There are several components of HubScore.  The best thing to do is to create high quality Hubs that people find useful.

      Even a mere porn page has better scoring !

      And yes for sure you want to reflect quality except that I don't see how since people don't comment, don't rate, traffic is not taken into account, length neither. So is there an invisible hand or is it an algorithm if yes maybe you could correct it smile

      If yes OK I will now know what "quality" means big_smile

      By the way I've been Quality Engineer at the beginning of my carreer (today I'm IT Project Manager and Part-Time Trader) that's why I talked so much about Edwards Deming wink

      Poor him he has also only a score of 41:
