      First of all, the hubscore doesn't mean very much. It just looks nice to fellow hubbers. My hub with the best traffic doesn't have as high a hubscore as many of my others do. It gets around 400 views a day.

      I think the hubscore just goes up when fellow hubbers vote it up. You are probably getting most of your traffic from elsewhere. That is  good thing.

        Thank you for your answer, i just joined few days ago, and was surprised because in two hours I got on that hub more traffic than on the other ones in a day, so i was wondering how it works. Now it explains a lot, thanks again for your reply.

    Stanzi this may be good for you... hubs that have a high score often get duplicated. The hub that draws my highest traffic is mostly in the eighties, goes up to 93 and falls back... as long as it gets me the traffic I am really not concerned about the score..  Score is just a number, if your hub score falls below 40 then you have to be worried as it would become no follow. That is all there is to hub scores!
