I have a Hub that has had 238 views: Score: 56
I have a Hub that has had 82 views: Score: 89
I don't get it. Anyone???
Us mere mortals are not allowed to know how the hubscore works.
No one will ever know how hub pages decides on article score. There are a few things we have noticed which seem to have a bearing. One is the number of views in a day. This seems to be especially important right after a hub is published. Comments which use keywords seems to be another. This we have noticed isn't constant though.
Our suggestion is don't worry about it. If you are getting generic traffic they have no idea what the number means, and those in hub pages will read an article of interest if the score is low. Two of my hubs started with very low hub scores but are now the most read from generic searches. The keywords and links have me ranked page 1 so people are finding the hubs. In the end generic readers are what matter.
Maybe one article was voted up more than the other? Or, the opposite.
Reaffirm your swearing by repeating it 10 times. Family members may question your sanity, but if you don't they will have even more reason as you become more and more obsessed with hub score.
The only possible value of hub scores is to raise your blood pressure. If you don't need that, then for goodness sake ignore them!
I also wonder how it works. But what made me confused a bit is that the number of views on my hubs is decreasing strangely. I check the 1st time to find it 15, a while later, I check again to find it 13 O_O. How does it come?

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

My Hub "People Almost Met: Lily at the Pool" recently had a hub score of 100 and stayed at the level for about two weeks. Now it is in the 60's. It has lots of comments and about average views (for my hubs). Anyone know what I can do about this?

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...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of priority about what to do next.Up until now I've been focused on the traffic data and...

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What should I read into that? Most people say that one should not concern...
