How exactly are Hub scores figured? I looked into the Learning Center and the answer I got was vague. I have 8 Hubs and my highest score is 79 for one of my weakest Hubs, but my best performing Hub is a 72. (I'm basing performance on # of hits.
Also, I.m pleased with the number of stats on this site. I can really gauge the performance of Hubs. However is there a stat where I can measure the daily average of the # of hits?
I'm hoping a Hubber with more experience can answer these questions for me
The criteria used to set HubScore are:
- 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
HubPages doesn't give us any more detail than that - but really, it's not worth worrying about, because HubScore doesn't mean much. As you've discovered, it tells you nothing about how profitable or successful a Hub is going to be! So the best thing to do with HubScore is ignore it.
Any moment now a more experienced Hubber will come along and tell you to search the forums for answers to the questions you have asked then go look at the learning center again.
I won't do that. I will just say that hub scores are a mystery of higher mathematics related (so it is rumored) to hubitivity, visitor numbers, accolades and some kind of random cycling factor.
Averages, I tend to do in my head.
Sorry, I can't be more helpful

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...

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total hub count is now way down, so that instead of 10 more hubs to 100, I've now got to...
