Hubness Rank: 1226

Weighted for channel sizes: 2005

Lower numbers are better. Measures influence of a given node in the network. Better ranks imply a well-connected node that is linked to other well-connected nodes.

Hopness Rank: 976

Weighted for channel sizes: 969

Lower numbers are better. Measures how many hops it takes to reach any node on the network. The better the rank, the fewer the hops are required to reach other nodes.

Betweenness Rank: 4059

Weighted for channel sizes: 7688

It is important to avoid closing channels as much as possible. In my node I have mostly empty channels. Technically I cannot send a lot of bitcoin with them, but I can receive and store a lot. This is a good buffer for when I need to receive bitcoin in a cheap way when on-chain fees are high. Also since this node is serving family and friends, they can accept cheap bitcoin as well through the LNBits instance they can use to manage bitcoin. The moral here is, always run your own node, and do not close channels, since their value is not in their current liquidity, but in the future liquidity and cheap transactions they will enable.
